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 recently…

Clinique Pep-Start

I received a little pink tube of Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser as a sample the last time I was in Sephora and having dabbled with Clinique products in the past (make mental note to add Dramatically Different Moisturiser to the list for next time I’m passing through Duty Free) I was more than happy…

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…

Review ~ Baan Saitara Villas, Koh Samui

A few weeks ago we flew to Koh Samui for a few days. Flying direct with Bangkok Air is more expensive than doing the Nok Fly N Ferry option but in theory should save you about half a day each way – when you’re only going for four days this was precious time. We usually…

It Cosmetics ~ Your Skin But Better

I’ve heard a lot about It Cosmetics from bloggers and You Tubers but it wasn’t a brand I had come across in Thailand. A few weeks ago during my regular sweep of Sephora I came across a whole new section of It Cosmetics! I had a mental list of what I fancied trying but as…

Zoeva Luxury Set Vol. 1

How stunning are these Zoeva brushes? I have heard so much about Zoeva but other than ordering online it’s not a brand I have seen in Bangkok so when I stumbled across their counter in Sephora in Singapore to say I was a little excited is an understatement. I knew I had to try something…

Oh, Charlotte…

As I was winding up my life to leave the UK the Charlotte Tilbury makeup launch was the hot topic of conversation amongst bloggers and makeup fans alike. I left for Bangkok before I managed to try any bits so on my October trip home, hitting the new CT stand in Selfridges, Manchester was high…

Review ~ Anantara Siam Brunch

Yesterday we did Sunday brunch, one of our favourite (payday!) things to do with friends. We were trying the Anantara Siam for the first time. It used to be The Four Seasons Hotel and is frequently voted as the ‘Best Brunch in Bangkok’ apparently. We had heard great things, including rumours about a man in…

Review ~ Living Proof 5-in-1

I have stupidly thick, coarse long hair which has always been relatively tame-able with frequent trips to the hairdresser and lots of rich serums and balms. Tame-able that was until rainy season arrived in Bangkok. My usually ok hair turned into a larger than life, frizz ball mess that had the texture of straw and the…

Review ~ Face Spritz

Firstly, let me admit I am late to this particular party. The Body Shop Vitamin C range has been around for years in different guises, the Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz has been around as far as I can tell for at least 3 years. Secondly, I shall admit that I have always steered pretty clear…

Review ~ The Coffee Club, Ekkamai

Since moving into town, The Coffee Club in nearby Ekkamai has become our second home. This lovely Australian cafe serves everything to see you through from breakfast to a late night snack opening from 6.30am – 10.30pm. There is a huge drinks menu including much more than just coffee! We do tend to come here for…

Review ~ Cookie’s Salad Resort, Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is renowned for full moon parties, buckets of booze and just out of school backpackers. But there is also a very different side to this island; it’s relaxed, laid back and very beautiful, it’s mountainous and tropical with lush coves and white sand. As per usual we spent hours trawling the web trying…
