The City

Editorial

I recently had the opportunity to write my very first magazine editorial! Although I agonised over what to write and whether it was good enough, I was pretty proud when I finally saw it printed and published.

I recently had the opportunity to make a new friend, Kiki. She has a fashion blog, but instead of writing about her own personal outfits, she interviews other bloggers, so I was honoured when asked to meet with me. Not only is she absolutely adorable, but she’s kind and hilarious too!

If you’re interested in reading my interview, you can check it out here. Note: there’s a special announcement in the interview that you probably don’t know about yet!

Everything is Cooler at W

I’ve been lucky enough to get to visit many hotels in and around the city, but none of them have tickled my fancy quite like the W Hotel Bangkok. At first I was skeptical, given that the overall decor isn’t really my style, but they managed to have me totally hooked within 2 hours of walking in the door. It got to the point where I felt like they could see into my head, to do everything to entertain me in the best way possible. I was just like a kid in a candy shop, running around giggling over all the cool things.

If you read APOE often, you may know that I recently had the opportunity to speak at Business In Heels, a ladies business networking event here in Bangkok. It was my first time public speaking and it was terrifying, but all of the women were so supportive and I couldn’t have asked for a better environment to speak in.

Getting Juicy

Sweater: Gentle Fawn – Backpack: Culture Riot

This past week I did my very first juice cleanse with Lifestyle Juicery. It was quite the experience! I am obsessed with eating and even more obsessed with coffee and wine, so this endeavor was quite a challenge. However, I ended up feeling pretty great after it was over and am still feeling the effects a few days later. I am also quite proud because I managed to do it without cheating at all!

Bangkok Tree House

During hot season my Bangkok adventures tend to involve air-conditioned Uber rides out of my soi to Central Embassy, where I will spend the day in Rocket Coffee Bar working on something, followed by the evening drinking wine on the patio of Water Library. All in the comforts of aircon. Yes, the Water Library patio has some pretty fancy cooling mechanisms on the patio. Basically, I’m super lazy.

Today is the big day! A Piece of Elise is officially one year old. I am so giddy this morning, I feel like I have a human baby who is having a birthday. I will be whipping out the Mimosas in about 2.7 seconds.

I recently had the opportunity to do a quick interview with www.weareona.com, a new platform for insider fashion in cities all over the world. I didn’t realize just how great of a job they would do, so I’m sharing some screenshots with you.

Elle FW Spring/Summer 2015

This past weekend was fashion week and it was both amazing and exhausting. I skipped the last show on each day because I was simply too tired, but then I would get home and lie in bed unable to sleep because my mind was spinning from all the wonderful fashion. It was all a bit surreal.
