Australia: The Purchases

I was really looking forward to shopping in Australia. It’s a country that I often looked at for inspiration when working in homeware and retail so the interiors lover in me was excited. I was also excited by the prospect of normal sized clothes and a huge choice of swimwear – both of which are lacking…

Duty Free Spree

Brands here in Thailand can be significantly more expensive than in other parts of the world, the U.K. included so I keep a list of products to pick up when I’m in Duty Free at the airport. My list tends to included staple beauty items that I already know are slightly cheaper to purchase there,…

Zalora 12.12 Event

I’ve collaborated with online retailer Zalora before so when the opportunity arose again I jumped at the chance! Zalora Thailand stock such a great range of women’s and mens fashions it’s no wonder they are South East Asia’s biggest online retailer. To say thanks to all their loyal customers there is a huge sale this weekend…

Weekend Pickups

I went shopping last weekend with the intention of ticking off some bits from my Christmas present shopping list…that would be the list of gifts for other people not for myself. Well, my shop wasn’t overly successful, I bought one present for someone and accidentally, a whole host of goodies for myself. Oops. Some of my acquisitions were…

H&M Makeup Haul

I was super excited to pick up some bits from the new H&M makeup range when I was back in the UK. The range includes everything from foundations and BB creams, to eyeshadow pencils and brushes and is presented beautifully in store. The packaging is all clean lines, black and white with gold detailing giving…

I have been an avid reader of this awesome lifestyle site for years, check it out if you don’t already know it, and I always look forward to their annual online Christmas Gift Guide which collates the most gorgeous presents into super easy…

The Essential Bag

I have been searching for that perfect black bag for ages now; something that can go from day to night, cute but not in your face and with enough space to fit my lippie, sunnies and my camera…tricky find right…? Zalora are an online retailer here in Asia (very similar to ASOS), they have own brand…

Eyeko & Urban Decay

Since moving to Thailand my makeup regime has become much quicker. My reasons being that it’s so hot it runs off plus when I have a tan I never think I need as much! I am someone who very much enjoys doing my makeup and can happily spend an hour blending and buffing but now my daily routine is…

The Hottest Day in 55 Years

After the chaos of the Grand Palace the day before and the prediction of it being the hottest day in Bangkok for 55 years (eeekk!), we thought we’d take my parents penultimate day a bit easier. We took the BTS to Phrom Phong which is only about 20 minutes from us to have a look at…

Chatuchak Market.

No visit to Bangkok would be complete without a visit to the Chatuchak weekend market. With over 8,000 stalls spread over an area the size of 5 football pitches it is pretty epic and can be hideously overwhelming especially in the April temperatures but is well worth a visit! We haven’t been since August last…

Saturday Spree

Unfortunately, I am the sort of person that has no problems spending money but since moving to Thailand I have seriously had to really change my habits. I am no longer earning my own money and I don’t feel that I can justify asking my husband for money to spend on clothes and cosmetics when…

Part 4: Eating, Shopping & Football

After our amazing island hopping trip, our friends then had 5 days with us in Bangkok before heading back to the UK. Dave was unfortunately back at work so that left the three of us to do some exploring! On Monday we took a boat down the river to visit Wat Arun and Wat Pho, both…
