At the end of December 2014, my husband and I emigrated to Bangkok, Thailand from the UK leaving behind my family, friends, job, our beautiful dog and my comfort zone!
Our move, most said was brave, some said was crazy, was totally necessary to mentally save ourselves as we struggled with the mundane routine of life in the UK; living for the weekend and the odd trip abroad for some much needed sunshine. It was getting us both down and the only ones who could do something about it was ourselves. We had never been to Bangkok, or Thailand for that matter, before my husband accepted his job here but we optimistically told ourselves life is too short, it was time for an adventure and lets face it, we could always go home if it didn’t work out! Over two 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. Slightly put on a back burner since moving to Thailand, food is probably up there now alongside beauty and a constant desire to travel.
Having loved blogs and admired bloggers for years I created Travels of a Beauty Addict to document our adventures, everyday life, expat struggles and of course our travels, 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 the internet informative, inspiring and enjoyable!
And for anyone reading this wondering if living abroad is right for you – do it, you can always go home if it doesn’t work out!
