Theo Mio Brunch

We have been to Theo Mio, British chef Theo Randall’s Italian restaurant in Bangkok at the Intercontinental Hotel, a couple of times for Brunch and when I found the pictures and realised I hadn’t shared I thought I should. Served from 11.30am – 2pm, it’s not your traditional Bangkok brunch in the sense that it…

A Country in Mourning.

It has been a very sad time for this country I am very lucky to call my home. As I’m sure many of you will have seen His Majesty King Bhumibol passed away on Thursday having reigned for 70 years. The much-revered king is seen as the father of Thailand and the country is shrouded in…

Bangkok Daily ~ October 2016

I thought I’d share a few of my favourite Instagram posts from the past few months plus a few extras. Life in the crazy city of Bangkok becomes ever more familiar as I edge towards my second year anniversary of living in Thailand, but everyday little things remind me that life is slightly extraordinary no matter…

Where Have I Been?

It’s been ages since I’ve blogged. A fact that has been gnawing away at the back of my mind for the past few months. It’s not that I’ve not been travelling. And it’s certainly not that I’ve ceased indulging in beauty products. But I do have a reason for my prolonged absence. I got a…

Review ~ W Hotel, Bangkok

Last weekend was my birthday but it was also Chinese New Year meaning hotel prices by the beach were astronomical. Instead, we had a two-day ‘staycation’ in Bangkok, at a hotel about 5km away from where we live. We chose the W Bangkok which I have seen reviewed by a few travel bloggers and on arrival…

Sunday Snaps

It’s Sunday and it’s Valentine’s Day – whatever you are up to I hope you’re having a fabulous day! I’ve had a very relaxed one; I went to the salon and had my nails done, I’ve finally got on top of some blogging I’ve been meaning to do and I’m catching up on First Dates and Shetland…

Let’s Eat in Tonight.

We are making a real effort to eat in. I know that sounds weird but in Bangkok it’s actually cheaper to eat out and given the size and scope of our kitchen (which consists of a microwave oven and 2 hobs), way easier too. But in the spirit of healthier eating, we have been exploring things we can…

I Got Chills…

This has been the strangest week weather-wise I have encountered in Bangkok. It got cold. Like, seriously cold (for Bangkok) dropping to just 15 degrees, in the north of Thailand temperatures around 10 degrees were recorded. Headlines have attributed 14 deaths in the country to the sudden decrease in temperature, soi dogs are clad in jumpers,…

Reunited BKK

This weekend my cousin, Singapore Cee, and her husband came to visit us here in Bangkok. I haven’t seen them since October when I was back in the UK for their wedding so was seriously excited about being reunited! Needless to say, we had a crazy busy weekend filled with lots of eating and drinking……

Hello Weekend

This week has been an odd one. We had a long weekend which meant we had the day off on Monday, then we all had the day off yesterday for constitution day, throw into the mix a horrendous cold and it’s been quite strange. I spent the majority of Tuesday and Wednesday in bed or…

Rod Fai Night Market

Last weekend we visited the New Talat Rod Fai Market over on Srinakarin here in Bangkok. We have heard a lot about the old and the new Train Market so were excited to explore with some friends. This market is open in the evenings Thursday to Sunday and is well worth a visit! To get…

Illuminate Art, Bangkok

We walked past Nick’s wonderful paintings in his little gallery a few months back when we were exploring Chatuchak Market with our friends Tom and Rob and pretty much fell in love. We spent quite a while looking at the bright colourful paintings and chatting to Nick and the amazing guy who translates for him,…
