The Long Absence

I’m sat here thinking about why I haven’t blogged since March and to be honest there really are a million reasons but as I’m trying to put them into words they just sound like excuses but here goes… April was spent travelling, in May, school got really busy and then my Grandfather passed away and…

Skincare Sunday

It had been a while since I graced my local Sephora with my presence so I popped it to pick up a few new skincare bits yesterday. I needed an evening moisturiser and cleanser. Here’s what I ended up getting: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser 50ml 600THB Fresh isn’t a brand I’ve tried before although it…

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….

Monday, Monday…

Seriously…where did October go?…and how is it November tomorrow? To say it’s 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 so…

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…

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 –…

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

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 of course…

Bangkok Daily ~ March 2017

I feel like I am so behind with my posts. I have lots planned to round up my Australia series, document my time in Chiangmai and Khao Lak as well as a few restaurant and beauty reviews but as per usual everyday life is getting in the way and whilst I felt like I was…

Review ~ Patissez, Bangkok

Patissez is a restaurant originally from Canberra, Australia which opened it’s first Thailand branch just off Sukhumvit 39 a few months ago. Patissez is famous for its FreakShakes (a trademarked term I’ll have you know!) so I went with some friends to check it out. The decor is nice and the restaurant has a funky, airy…
