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.

Top: Tuulla – Skirt: DKNY – Hat: Borrowed from Kiki – Shoes: Converse

Watch: TW Steel – Sunglasses: Dolce & Gabanna

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!

“Love Is Life” is what Diane Von Furstenberg signed in her book “The Journey of Dress” when I had the opportunity to meet her last night. She was definitely right – last night I was loving life!

Angkor

1

I recently travelled to Siem Reap and explored Angkor Wat for the second time. The first time I went I was a teenager and after being robbed of all my money on the first day, the 50 cent beers on pub street were mostly all that I could (not) remember. With this in mind, I was a bit worried to travel back to Siem Reap with my family, but was also excited to give Cambodia another try in hopes that I had a more pleasant experience the second time around. The good news is that Cambodia made a comeback in the mind of Elise and now she has a slight obsession. Why am I talking in third person?

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.

Guide Of Love

Guide Of Love

Valentine’s Day has never really been my thing. Aside from cute cards written by my parents and another great excuse to OD on chocolate, I have never really been one to celebrate this holiday. However, for one reason or another, I’m getting pretty excited for this one. I have been seeing so many cute Valentine’s inspired mood boards online and perfectly selected department store windows, that I seem to be finding myself getting a little bit into this day of love. After all, why not celebrate something great? I know I’m going to relax, drink some good wine and eat LOTS of chocolate, obviously.

We all know I’m silk obsessed. Well, I recently got a crazy splatter print silk variation of a superman cape from Jane Suda. Yup, next level. So, in true superman fashion, I headed up to one of the rooftop terraces at my apartment and tried to balance in the wind. Don’t worry, I know I can’t fly. Unfortunately, the photos didn’t turn out nearly as heroic/superman-esque as I imagined, but here are some of what we got.

So I need to learn to keep my mouth shut. Apparently taking pictures with Ivana makes me excited. There’s this weird fake grass putting green on the roof of my building, turns out it makes for some pretty colorful pictures!

Well friends, I have officially completed 1.5 weeks of work. I have no clue what I’m doing, but I’m slowly learning the ropes. The biggest shock of starting work was that no one has actually given me any work. Weird right? After 4 years of being in school, where I was always told what to learn, write or remember, showing up at an office in which no one tells me anything is probably the most difficult task of all. So here I am, trying to come up with my own stuff to do, which would somehow help out a huge corporation. Sigh. I’m way out of my league here.
