New Year Sydney Style

Sydney and New Year go hand in hand. They are totally synonymous with each other, so of course when we began planning our  Christmas trip we knew we would have to do the slightly cliched (but bucket list) New Year’s Eve in Sydney! We discovered we had friends from the UK who were also going…

Thai Beauty ~ Srichand Luminescence Perfecting Powder

I really like the Srichand loose powders which I’ve talked about before. The Original is great at setting the under-eye and the Tanaka Gold makes a lovely face mask so when I came across a new Luminescence range from the brand in Boots I knew I had to give something a try. The range includes…

Travel Plans

The last two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind of travel planning! We have a few long weekends coming up as well as some visitors so had lots of jaunts to sort out and get planned, plus I have been growing increasingly aware that I still haven’t visited Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam –…

Soleil Tan De Chanel

I have gazed longingly at the Soleil Tan De Chanel so many times but never taken the plunge, my main concern was that it would be too warm or orange for my skin tone. But after watching the very talented Olivia Jane MUA do my best friends makeup for her wedding day in the summer…

Introducing Lalalab

I remember the days when you would take your roll of film to Boots that had taken you months to use, having carefully selected each shot so as to not waste a single frame, and the anticipation of getting your photographs back, which ones had worked, which hadn’t. I used to create all sorts of…

UK Beauty Haul

I had quite a long list of products to either restock or that I have added to my wishlist to try and pick up whilst I was back in the UK last month. Needless to say I came back with quite a stash! I haven’t tried everything yet but I thought I’d give you a rundown…

Summer 2017

Well we’re back in Bangkok after an amazing but totally hectic month back in the UK where as predicted we ate way too much, spent too much and drove too much! We caught up with friends and family, hung out with our dog, I accompanied one of my best friends in the world down the…

Catchup

Hi everyone, So sorry I haven’t blogged in ages, the last weeks of term at school are always crazy busy  and this year it was no exception. If anything this year was actually crazier as we have had a number of close friends leaving Bangkok so we’ve had non-stop parties and celebrations for weeks which…

Australia: The Road Trip Part

‘Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.’ (A quote I firmly believe in but you’ll appreciate the irony once you’ve read the post.) After our epic time in the Whitsundays back in December, our plan was to hire a car and drive over three days from Airlie Beach to Brisbane where…

The Slate ~ Rebranded

The Slate in Phuket used to be called The Indigo Pearl and if you’ve been following this blog for a while you will know it’s one of our favourite resorts ever. I’m not going to reblog it all so if you’d like to read more click here and here. We spent the recent long weekend at…

Review ~ 99 The Heritage Hotel, Chiangmai

Back in February we went up to Chiangmai for a few days with my parents. As the only one who had visited before, my husband chose 99 The Heritage Hotel as he had a good experience in their sister hotel on a previous trip. It was just under £90 a room per night. This beautiful boutique…

In Love with Indonesia

Warning – this post contains excessive use of adjectives and may cause serious wanderlust. I have just returned from the most amazing time in Indonesia, where along with with my husband and best friend, and various friends and family along the way, visited Bali, Lombok and Gili Air. I gushed a little a few days ago on my…
