Wishing my mum a happy Mother’s Day with a post that is entirely her clothing! I can see her rolling her eyes now. Raiding my family’s closet is one of my favorite things to do. I love you mum! CONTINUE READING!
I’m back!!! I think this has officially been the longest I’ve gone without a blog post since I created A Piece of Elise. Shocking, I know! Having said that, just because you haven’t heard from me doesn’t mean I forgot about you. I have actually been working hard creating all kinds of amazing content that will be coming your way this week. I am very excited to share it all with you. CONTINUE READING!
Taking a quick break from my family holiday and Songkran celebrations to bring you a new outfit post! I was in Siem Reap, Cambodia last week to explore Angkor Wat. We booked a random hotel online and it ended up having what might be my favorite pool of all time! It was literally a work of art. Forcing myself to walk around hot and dusty temples each day was quite an achievement. I think I may return to Sarai Resort & Spa Siem Reap very soon – they also had some of the kindest, most genuine staff I’ve ever encountered! CONTINUE READING!
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. CONTINUE READING!
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.
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!

Although I can never seem to stop buying heels, when it comes right down to it, the shoes I wear most are flats. Since moving to the centre of the city, I spend most of my time walking, so comfortable shoes are more important than ever. People frequently ask me why I’m limping; it’s because the soles of my flats are so, well… hard and flat that it makes walking really painful! CONTINUE READING!

It’s time for Little Black Dress #2! In case you missed #1, you can catch it here.
I don’t know about you, but I’m notorious for getting tired of my clothes. For example, when I’m getting ready for a party I often find myself frantically sorting through my closet throwing one item after another onto my bed in some desperate attempt to find something that I want to wear. Far too often, my room looks like a tornado, my bed has disappeared under a mountain of dresses and I end up sitting on the couch with a (seriously large) glass of wine in my hand. Because really, sometimes getting dressed can be big time overwhelming. CONTINUE READING!
One of the fun things about blogging is always getting to meet new people. Often that just happens “virtually”, so it’s extra exciting when you finally get to meet those people in person. I have been engaging with Tenzin on Instagram for some time and aside from a short run in at my University, we had never actually hung out in person until this past week. As always, it was a bit nerve wracking working with a new photographer, but Tenzin was so cool and wearing such an epic outfit that it was just lots of fun. CONTINUE READING
