At the end of December 2014, my husband and I emigrated to Bangkok, Thailand from the UK leaving behind our family, friends, jobs, our beautiful dog and our comfort zone!
Our move (most said was brave, some said was crazy) was totally necessary to mentally save ourselves from the mundane routine of our lives in the UK; living for the weekend and the odd trip abroad for some much needed sunshine just wasn’t cutting it for us anymore! We had never been to Bangkok, or Thailand for that matter, before my husband accepted his job here but we optimistically told ourselves life’s too short, it was time for an adventure and lets face it, we could always go home if it didn’t work out! Over three years later and we thank our lucky stars everyday we were brave enough to take the plunge!
Before emigrating my career was in retail, specifically interiors and homeware focusing on publishing and photography but my real love has always been beauty and travel. Having been an avid blog reader for years, I created Travels of a Beauty Addict to document our adventures, everyday life, expat struggles, our travels and of course my beauty purchases, for myself, for my family and friends and for anyone else interested enough to read Travels of a Beauty Addict. I hope in someway you find this little slice of my world enjoyable!
And for anyone reading this wondering if moving abroad is right for you – do it, you can always go home if it doesn’t work out!
