smoke in a bottle

Happy Halloween! Since I'm not home I actually didn't have anything particular to wear. But wearing black clothes, silver jewellery, purple lips and extremely pale skin always look a bit spooky - or at least gothic. We also went to Iron Fairies, they didn't have any special decoration for the occasion. They really don't need it! I had a drink called Smoke In A Bottle. Perfectly spooky for halloween.

the view from marriott rayong

I think this has got to be the coziest extra bed in the world. The view is just fantastic! Especially when I'm used to seeing the ocean every day and now that I reside in Bangkok I haven't seen it in two months. I've got a soft spot for a nice place to be next to a window with a nice view. Like a cozy windowsill or a comfy bed.

garrett's cheese popcorn

We ate Garrett's popcorn all the way down to Koh Samet and also now on the way back from the island. The cheese popcorn are really, in fact too, yummy and they can be bought in Siam Paragon. The cute tin boxes are now used for storing chunky bracelets and stuff in my room.

Today was absolutely lovely! It started off with a nice breakfast. I always like hotel breakfasts... Then we went down to the pool. We were basically the only people there! I swam 1 km., the pool was 50 m. long! We also went swimming in the ocean and my sweet little sister shot some pictures of me down by the cliffs. I'll share them with you later for previous mentioned reasons. Now, I'm super tired from all the sun and swimming. I will do some evening studying, and then I will go to sleep. I love my bed here. I'll post pictures of it too when I get back to Bangkok. Tomorrow we're probably going to Koh Samet depending on the weather and our well-being. Goodnight!

cute suitcase & garrett popcorn

We've been on a small road trip where we had had Garrett popcorn and Swedish candy that my sweet sister and Mum brought and sent. We also stopped by Starbucks for three ice lattes. After a comfortable and cosy drive, we arrived at the hotel here in Rayong. It is super nice! I took lots of pictures at the infinity pool today but unfortunately I forgot the wire that connects my camera and my Mac... You'll get them when I get back to Bangkok. Tomorrow, we're considering taking a boat trip to the islands. The picture above is of my new suitcase. It's so cute!

infinity pool

You have got to love an infinity pool. This one in the Marriott Resort & Spa is quite gorgeous and the pool is also extremely large. In the other end, there is an aquarium on the side of the pool. The pools are actually quite remarkable there. I swam 1 km. in one of them.

el gaucho bangkok

Went to dinner tonight at an Argentinian restaurant called El Gaucho. Their burgers are good, in fact, we all had cheese and bacon burgers... Tomorrow my sister and father and I are going to the coast of Thailand. I really look forward to that! The pose is a bit awkward because of the weird lightning in the restaurant. I thought it was better to have an uncomfortable pose than to look really shadowy in the face... My sister also applied my makeup this evening, she is super talented. I'll take a close-up of it some other time. So happy she's finally here!

inspiration # 34

I stumbled upon the last picture on the internet a couple of days ago and I figured that I'd post a small compilation of some gorgeous women. From above; Catherine Deneuve, Jean Shrimpton, Edie Sedgwick and last but absolutely not least; Audrey Hepburn. These beauties never fail to inspire and I love looking at old pictures of them. The clothes they wear are so classic that they would most definitely work today: the cute bow in the hair, the black top, the black fur and I can't even begin to describe the last picture.

japanese & american food

 Here's the sushi from last night. My boyfriend and I went to the Japanese place around the corner. He had Asahi beer and I had green tea. Other than that, we had California Rolls, edamame beans and Japanese potato croquettes. Yummy! Another yummy place is the Bangkok Burger Company. The curly fries and the milkshakes are just to die for - not to mention the burgers! During the day, I'm mostly studying in sport clothes or PJ. That explains the lack of outfit pictures.

glitterati nail lounge manicure

Got a manicure and a pedicure today at the Glitterati Nail Lounge. It was quite good. I'm proud my nails are finally looking better!

fashion passion

More pictures from last friday. We went to Greyhound Café and my boyfriend had lunch since he came straight from work. I just had a mocktail called Fashion Passion. Quite an appropriate name since the café is in a mall. It really has super nice food that isn't expensive. Today I'm studying and maybe getting an hour or so by the pool and one in the gym.

jewellery detail

A jewellery detail. Bimba & Lola bug bracelet, a Nepalese bracelet and the thin silver link is from Carré Copenhagen. The bug bracelet and silver link are favourites that I wear all the time. The Nepalese and very colourful jewellery that I have, is almost always worn with white, black or gray simple outfits.

red stiletto nails

I've been so into red or nude stiletto nails lately. Unfortunately, they are just very unhealthy for the nails and makes them thinner. And since my nails are thin by nature, it seems like a bad idea for me to get acrylic nails. Instead I'm trying to shape and grow my natural nails into the stiletto type. Actually, they have gotten a little harder and seem more difficult to crack when they are shaped like this. Just a tip. So... Right now, I'm blogging reversely and afterwards, I'll head down to the pool to study, tan and swim. In the afternoon I have dance and manicure and pedicure. I really look forward to pampering myself!

sephora siam center

The Sephora in Siam Center is great. I love that they apply makeup on you when you buy something. I bought my Naked 2 here. The makeup doesn't really show well in the picture, though. Anyway, I look so much forward to exploring this Sephora when my sweet little sister arrives on saturday!

naked 2

I bought Naked 2 yesterday! The colours look super nice and I really look forward to playing with the colours. Right now, I'm going to the pool, so it seems quite unnecessary to wear eyeshadow. I've also been looking at lots of tutorials for more advanced eyeshadow than I normally do. Do you have any tips or ideas?

white wine sangrias & red sky

My boyfriend and I went to Red Sky to enjoy the sunset and their happy hour. Unfortunately it was cloudy and we had to order two drinks per person, which I found ridiculous. Anyway, the white wine Sangrias were nice and the view was fab as always. Sometimes it's nice to see Bangkok from above in daylight. I just bought new heels that I'm wearing. Nothing particularly fancy because I want to be able to wear them to parties. Have a lovely friday!

Shirt: The Kooples.
Skirt: Norr.
Heels: Siam Center.

voss water & indiana ice

My workday today was super short, so afterwards I went home and had lunch. Then I spent the rest of the sunny afternoon tanning and studying by the pool. So, now I'm waiting for dinner and later we'll work out and watch Breaking Bad. At the moment, I'm really into drinking water blended with something else in a Voss bottle. So far I've had mineral water with the following flavours (and I liked them all): 1. Lemon and chili. 2. Lemon, orange, lime and chili. 3. Jasmine tea, passionfruit and lemon. Looking forward to the weekend!

christian lacroix paper

I have a weakness for notepads. Especially when they are red and fancy.

urban decay naked

I'm considering to buy one of the famous Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes. I'm just not sure which one... The one below is Naked, the one in the middle is Naked 3 and the one above them, is Naked 2. Right now, I'm mostly thinking about the top two. I also really want to get a couple more brushes from YSL. They are the best!

nail necessities

I got these nail and hand products a while ago because I unfortunately have very soft nails that easily break. Now, after some quite intensive therapy with these three products and lots of filing, my nails are actually a lot better. I really recommend these three products; the cuticle oil and the Intensive Therapy II nail polish from Nail Tek and the hand cream from L'Occitane. I usually apply the oil every day, the nail polish whenever I need it and same for the hand cream.

chocolate cake & coconut flakes

Today I baked this chocolate cake with coconut flakes. It's definitely one of my favourite cakes ever! Today I went to my dance class and cooked dinner.

pizza by the pool

We had pizza by the pool today. I've not really been doing that much... Studying, watched a movie and tanned. Tomorrow I will bake a cake for my Dad, he returns from a trip and study some more! Hope you have and will have a fabulous saturday! P.S. I'm wearing my new black straw hat and my black Triangl Ziggy Stardust bikini.

bumrungrad & the iron fairies

Today, after studying and a leg workout, I went to Bumrungrad International Hospital and got a vaccine for Japanese Encephalitis. It is a mosquito-born virus and your odds aren't good if you are infected. So, since I'm planning to travel outside of Bangkok and the mosquitoes adore my blood, I thought I'd better get it... Anyway, it's quite funny going to a private hospital where the doctor tries to sell you all available vaccines that you really have no need for. In the evening we went to Red Sky, but when we were on our way, it started raining... So we went to The Iron Fairies instead and the theme was super cool. My boyfriend had a Long Island Ice Tea and I had a Naughty Girl Bellini.

chanel les 4 ombres limited edition

Love at first sight. Crushing over this green and silvery Chanel eyeshadow. I don't know if it is the "Murder on the Dance Floor"music video by Sophie Ellis Bextor that I adored when I was little or simply me getting tired of my usual grey or brownish eyeshadow. Even though I'm an YSL person, I actually consider getting this one for myself. What do you think? I think this would also look fab on my little sister because she has green eyes. This palette is number 232 Tissé Vénetien.

an evening walk in the benjakiti park

A couple of pictures from an evening walk in the pretty Benjakiti park. I love walking and I usually do it all the time with my dog back home.

P.S. I just sent in my application for the University! So excited!

yoo moo froyo

I'm eating lots of frozen yogurt at the moment. My favourite places are both in Siam Paragon: Yoo Moo and Buddhi Belly. I almost always choose a slightly sour taste in the yogurt and passionfruit and berries on top.

spring dresses from chloé

Crisp details from the Chloé RTW spring show. The lace of the white dress is very unusual. It's probably not the kind of lace I would normally go for but the dress as a whole is very cute. Unfortunately, I'm not really in my seafoam period anymore, otherwise this dress would have been a crush. It still is though - especially the cut!
