Angkor Wat & Siem Reap, Cambodia

One of my aims since last summer was to visit a few more of the incredible places that are right on our doorstep. Hanoi in September blew me away so when we had another long weekend in October we hopped on a plane to Cambodia (flying time, just over an hour from Bangkok) to visit…

Review: Hilocks Hotel and Spa, Siem Reap

We stayed at the Hilocks Hotel and Spa when we visited Siem Reap in October. As well as it getting great reviews and looking lovely, my main reasons for picking it were that it was a little out of town so peaceful but had a regular shuttle into the centre, it had a lovely pool…

Travels Moments of 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on what really has been an awesome year. We’ve travelled to some incredible places, fallen in love with most of them, and had lots of amazing visitors who, even after three years in Bangkok, continue to come and see us. We really are so…

The Ultimate Christmas Q&A

I read the Ultimate Christmas Q + A over on the lovely Life of Angela and thought I would give it a go. I don’t usually do these sort of posts but I enjoyed reading Angela’s so I hope you’ll enjoy reading mine and if you fancy doing it yourself, it’s not too late! What…

A Very Bangkok Christmas

Anyone who assumes just because Thai people don’t celebrate Christmas it’s not really a thing here would be massively mistaken. Bangkok seriously goes to town on Christmas, like big time. The malls are insanely decorated, it’s like fairy lights have been spewed over the city and the festive tunes are pumping all over the place….

A Quick Singapore Weekend

We just had a quick weekend jaunt to Singapore to catch up with friends and meet a new family member! One of the best things about living in Bangkok is being able to get to so many other places in just a short flight. I love Singapore and every time I go I like it…

Monday, Monday…

Seriously…where did October go? …and how is it November tomorrow? To say its been a hectic month would be a bit of an understatement. The past weeks have flown by in a flurry of friends, family and trips to Cambodia and Phuket. It’s been awesome but has left me decidedly behind on the blogging front…

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil

I love a good facial cleansing oil. It’s my go to type of cleanser and I find it makes such a difference to my oily skin, I know that sounds weird but it really does help lessen the amount of oil my skin produces. The Muji Oil Cleanser is my current everyday go to but I…

September Favourites

I thought it was about time I began a monthly favourites series as I seem to be the only blogger out there who doesn’t, which is weird as they are one of my favourite type of posts to read! So without further ado, onto my favourites from September. Monki Face Dress My sister ordered this…

Bangkok Daily ~ September 2017

Being an expat has its ups and downs. It can be hard being so far from home and despite being over three years into expat life, it doesn’t get easier! But the good times far outweigh the bad for me which is why it didn’t take me long to think of Bangkok as home. When…

A Long Weekend in Hanoi

To say I fell in love with Hanoi is probably an understatement (I declared we should move there less than 24 hours in…); I loved how unique the culture still is, I loved the hectic, scooter filled streets, I loved the food and the cheap beer and the delicious egg coffee! We were there for…
