Childlike Issues

38

I’m not sure if it was the glass bottle coke in my hand, the converse on my feet or the bow in my hair, but something about this outfit had me acting like a child. On this day, I literally walked away from W District Market with grass stains on my knees. I have no idea what instilled this behavior/mental relapse, but I know that it was fun and you should try it too. Go get your old lego set and make a princess castle. But seriously, all mental ages aside, this day as a kid really got me thinking about how what I chose to wear in the morning often reflects my current mood and what sort of crazy adventures I will probably get up to that day.

Hua Hin Hills Vineyard

DSC_0056I really like wine. If it were up to me, people would be able to survive off the stuff. Why didn’t they give me the power? If I had a choice, all my afternoons would be spent drinking a glass of wine and surrounded by good friends. Maybe I should make a wine blog! It’s genius. However, that would probably mean increasing my health insurance substantially, not to mention Thailand has a total of maybe 5 vineyards. Details, ugh.

Either way, I recently had the pleasure of spending a day at Hua Hin Hills Vineyard (and yes I did say pleasure, anything with wine is pleasure). CONTINUE READING

Pomelo Fashion

untitled-8-2

Lately, my shopping situation consists of the need to have e-v-e-r-y-thing. Just so we’re clear, I don’t think it’s because I have a problem. Instead, I would like to blame the fashion industry for making everything so amazing. It’s entirely their fault. Either way, I have an anxiety attack at least once a week because I can only last so long using my shampoo money to buy yet another pair of patent leather flats. But don’t worry Pomelo, I washed my hair for our visit.

Embracing the Dirty

untitled-21-2I have a love hate relationship with the dirtiness of the city. Partly, I hate it because it’s dirty. But then I love the dirt because it makes everything more interesting. When it comes to fashion, a little dirt can make people appear wonderfully out of place.

Confessions of an Uber Addict

10264386_10152216204017874_744767867_nThis week marked the Official Launch of Uber in Bangkok. Up until Wednesday, I hadn’t even realized that the past month of me informing my friends of Ubers’ “arrival” had actually just been in the form of a soft launch (oops). Either way, this week involved a lot of Uber.

Songkran Essentials

Let’s talk about Songkran. It’s a pretty hot topic right now given that it has officially arrived! If you’ve never been to Thailand and don’t know what it is, I’d suggest you google it now.

When it comes to the Thai New Year, I think it’s pretty awesome. In fact, it just might be my favorite holiday. Therefore, I find it very surprising when I come across people who aren’t feeling the Songkran love.

If you’re one of those people, I hope this post changes your mind. If not, at least my Songkran essentials will allow you to survive the upcoming week in some form of comfort (and style, obviously).

Covered Is Key

32

I’m currently going through a phase of needing to be completely covered in clothing. I’m talking the least amount of visible flesh, the better. Unfortunately, this presents a bit of a problem given the current 40 degree temperatures.

Zigzagging

All I want to do is wear a Kaftan.

I wish I could look through the webcam right now to see how many people are shaking their head. After all, who do I think I am? A relative of Roberto Cavalli?

I know, the Kaftan doesn’t have the best reputation. It’s generally left waiting in the store for that perfectly fake looking milf to swoop by and pick it off the rack. She needs it for her yacht weekend in St. Bart’s with all her girlfriends – of course.
