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, as…

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…

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…

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…

Home ~ A Snapshot

So I’m back in Bangkok after a wonderful whirlwind 10 days back in the UK cramming in so many things. I am genuinely shattered but having brought friends back to BKK with me there’s no rest for the wicked and we are busy ‘Cooking with Poo‘ and doing bike tours of the city which I…

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…

Touching Base.

So life has been a bit hectic lately which has significantly hindered my blogging – no excuse I know! Apologies for the lack of posts and updates on life here in Bangkok. Here is a quick rundown of what’s been going on: New condo ~ Yay – we found a flat which we move into on the…

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…

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…

Just another year older…

The plan had always been New York and Prada for my 30th. Obviously that was before we moved to Thailand and everything changed somewhat. As my milestone birthday approached I had to reconsider what I wanted. I no longer had as much need for the much coveted Prada tote I have gazed at for years or…
