Review ~ Marriott, Hua Hin

A few weeks ago we headed down to the Marriott in Hua Hin for the weekend with some friends and our garish inflatables. We got a taxi down to the mainland seaside resort town which cost around 5000 THB return and takes about 3 hours from central Bangkok. We got a great deal on our…

Review ~ Aleenta, Phuket

This weekend we headed to the beach for some R&R. Yes, I know, anyone who keeps up with my travels on Instagram will know we just got back from the UK and Spain but I had a holiday day to take so we headed to Phuket, more specifically to the Aleenta Resort & Spa. I can…

Review ~ Sephora Pro Brushes

I have been needing to add some brushes to my stash for a while but a few things had been delaying my purchase. Firstly, I haven’t been able to find a wide variety of decent brushes here in Bangkok, we have MAC and Sephora but that is about it. Granted I could buy online but…

Review ~ W Hotel, Bangkok

Last weekend was my birthday but it was also Chinese New Year meaning hotel prices by the beach were astronomical. Instead, we had a two-day ‘staycation’ in Bangkok, at a hotel about 5km away from where we live. We chose the W Bangkok which I have seen reviewed by a few travel bloggers and on arrival…

Sunday Snaps

It’s Sunday and it’s Valentine’s Day – whatever you are up to I hope you’re having a fabulous day! I’ve had a very relaxed one; I went to the salon and had my nails done, I’ve finally got on top of some blogging I’ve been meaning to do and I’m catching up on First Dates and Shetland…

Excess Baggage

So despite my best intentions, my suitcase came back from the UK last month was heavier than it went. Thank god for BA excess baggage allowance. Naughty me. So here is a few of the things I bought and also received for Christmas… Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99 I love the RT brushes so when I was…

Let’s Eat in Tonight.

We are making a real effort to eat in. I know that sounds weird but in Bangkok it’s actually cheaper to eat out and given the size and scope of our kitchen (which consists of a microwave oven and 2 hobs), way easier too. But in the spirit of healthier eating, we have been exploring things we can…

I Got Chills…

This has been the strangest week weather-wise I have encountered in Bangkok. It got cold. Like, seriously cold (for Bangkok) dropping to just 15 degrees, in the north of Thailand temperatures around 10 degrees were recorded. Headlines have attributed 14 deaths in the country to the sudden decrease in temperature, soi dogs are clad in jumpers,…

How Do You Plan Yours?

Yesterday was spent on the sofa surrounded by travel guides and lists, utilising Safari on both my phone and laptop, organising our Thai holiday for when my parents visit in April. We are heading to Hong Kong for four nights during the first week of the holiday leaving us time to visit the beach for some downtime…

Reunited BKK

This weekend my cousin, Singapore Cee, and her husband came to visit us here in Bangkok. I haven’t seen them since October when I was back in the UK for their wedding so was seriously excited about being reunited! Needless to say, we had a crazy busy weekend filled with lots of eating and drinking……

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 men’s 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…

Koh Samed ~ A Weekend in Pictures

This weekend was a long one here in Thailand due to the Kings birthday. So we headed off to Koh Samed, the closest island to Bangkok, with a gang of mates to celebrate one of our own birthdays, #chidellsthirty. The weekend was a riot of glow paint, scooters, buckets, beaches and sunsets; it was ace….
