The Emerald Buddha



There are many different places to see whilst you're travelling around Thailand, but, If you'd really like to experience the Thai culture, visiting a Buddhist Temple is a must! Out of the population in Thailand, 95% of the people are Buddhists. The culture is influenced hugely by Buddhism and you'll find Temples are extremely important and highly respected by the locals. Wat Phra Kaew in particular is very popular, located in the heart of Bangkok, the temple is regularly visited by both Thai people and tourists.

Thailand - Bangkok Sky Bar


Hi everyone, as some of you know I've just come back from the most amazing 4 week holiday to Thailand. I got the chance to visit some incredible places and see some amazing things, so I'm really looking forward to sharing my experience with you all.

First stop was Bangkok, and on one of our evenings we went to visit The Dome Sky Bar at Lebua Hotel, one of the highest rooftop bars in the world.

Pre Holiday Packing


Exciting news! I'm adventuring on a 4-week holiday to the beautiful Thailand. The weather out there is scorching hot at the moment, so I have posted a blog of a list of items I’ll be making sure to take with me on my trip. All the items I’ll be writing about are products I find good for my skin in hot environments and also make up that works well for me whilst away.

Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Spray Oil



If you're travelling to places where the sun is out, you must always pack sunscreen. I actually use to think not putting on sun protection would make me tan better and quicker, which of course was certainly NOT TRUE! The Hawaiian Tropic spray is a trusty sun protective oil guarding your skin from any harmful UV damage and also helps to achieve that beautiful bronze tan. What I love most about this product is it smells gorgeous and really makes you feel like you’re on an exotic holiday, plus its water resistant so you don’t have worry too much going in and out the sea.

Body Shop Mango Body Butter



 My skin is always in need of some TLC, especially after spending a day in and out the sea at the beach. I love this product; it’s extra hydrating on the skin and it smells so yummy - Mango is definitely my favourite. I apply this product after a shower to rehydrate my skin focusing mostly on my elbow and knees. I don’t apply too much anywhere else, as it’s a moisturiser, it can start to get really sticky on your skin in the humid weather.

Dinner For Two At Hotel Du Vin



Apologies, this post is delayed, but I finally decided to post about my evening and what I wore on Valentine's Day! My boyfriend had booked us a table at the beautiful Hotel Du Vin & Bistro for dinner in Brighton. When we arrived at the restaurant, there were red rose petals laid out across the tables and candles lit up all around the room. When we sat down, we were presented with our bottle of Veuve and straight away I knew I would love this place. In the past at certain restaurants, I find myself awkwardly trying to catch a waiter's attention for what seems to be a lifetime, but here we never felt like we had to wait. Our food came out in efficient timing and the staff were always attentive to us. For starters I had my favourite food; mussels in white wine followed by a ribeye steak with peppercorn sauce for my main course yum!. The service they provided was professional and the waiter's were incredibly friendly and considerate. Even when it was reaching closing time, the staff were adament we took our time and continued to enjoy ourselves! 

Outstanding food is extremely important to get the customers to come back but the service is what makes their time there memorable



Make Up - Lipstick 


I wore my favourite bright red LOreal lipstick for the evening. I was given this lipstick as a present and to be honest I haven't found a red lippie that I prefer more! It applies on really smoothly with a creamy yet matte texture. Unlike some lipsticks that can leave your lips looking cracked and feeling dry, this LOreal red locks in the moisture keeping it hydrated and smooth. What I love about it, is not only is it an amazing stand out red, but the colour stays on forever. As girls going out for dinner, we find ourselves topping up our lippie a few too many times and even worry how we eat to prevent the colour from smudging or rubbing off! I love wearing it when I go out for the evening as it lasts throughout the whole night. This is by far my favourite red lipstick and I find this colour really is matches well for all skin tones.


Outfit
For my outfit I wore this gorgeous dress from Boohoo. A plain black bodycon dress with sleeves that rested just off the shoulders. I wanted to wear something sophisticated with a fuller length, but also an outfit that was appealing as it was Valentine's Day. After hours of searching, this one was perfect! Anytime I go out for dinner I try to make sure I wear dark colours or at least a floaty top. I love my food and I really am one of those girls that likes eating a hell of alot, so I went for a black colour just to hide the food baby I'd be carrying around with me after! To finish off this look, I put on some classic black pointy shoes with a glossy finish.

My Top 5 Make Up Brushes



If you love your make up you should also love your brushes too!

Good brushes are really important to have as part of your make up kit, and having the right set of tools will make such a difference to how your face looks. Application and blending is essential to making your face look flawless, so I wanted to share with you my 5 favourite make up brushes that I love using to help me achieve a seamless finish.

1. Beauty Blender



I know I know, it's not a brush I haven't exactly started this off well BUT of course I had to include it. It is by far my most favourite item to apply make up to my face. When it first came through the post I freaked thinking I'd received the mini beauty blender but it was only when I ran it under water it absorbed to it's regular size, phew! The beauty blender does exactly what the name says, it blends! and does so amazingly. I've used drug store sponges in the past but realised the sponges would soak up too much product and leave my face patchy sometimes. If you're looking to get a make up sponge, the original beauty blender is £16 but completely worth the price you pay, plus their brand is cruelty free.

"Sorry I can't right now, I'm conditioning my hair"


Noir du Jour London

 Use my exclusive discount code to get yourself 10% off!


Before the New Year, I got some products from Noir Du Jour to help tackle my long dark hair. I have always suffered with it being quite dry, especially after bleaching and dyeing it regularly throughout the years. I admire people with amazing hair so I was beyond happy seeing my locks looking healthier again after using this treatment. The hair treatment I used was the Deep Fortifying Conditioner Hair Mask and also, I used a heat protector called the Thermal Protector Hair Spray.

Both products that I've recently been using are by Dominican Magic sold by Noir Du Jour on their website www.noirdujour.com ; which can be found in the beauty section.

Simple Sass




I've noticed Kendall Jenner loves her bardot tops and I'm always inspired by her style. It's a very easy look to achieve. I've matched this top with a pair of black super stretched jeans to keep it chic and then added some colour (and height) with these tie back heels.

Trousers - H&M

The Siam Capital






Thailand will always be a special place to me. 
Being half Thai I'm lucky to be part of a country with great historic culture, beautiful beaches and spectacular sights. One of those sights in particular is Wat Maha That in Ayutthaya built all the way back in the 1300s.
