Thailand: Part 1 Phuket

I'm sitting on the balcony of the Cape Sienna in Phuket as we speak waiting for the 5 course meal I just ate to be digested so I can sleep without feeling completely weighed down by food. I'm not really sure why I'm on holiday in the middle of year 12 (even if it is during the holidays), especially when I have folios and SACs due within a couple of weeks of going back to school, but I guess everyone needs to relax. So far these couple of days in Thailand have been beyond spectacular; from the foods (my stomach is getting bigger as the days progress, but the food is so good and cheap...), culture to the landscapes (think tropical), expectations have far been exceeded. I hope these photos from my iPhone will suffice . 
Unless you have really good self control (of which I don't) buffets are my worst enemy. Don't let this photo deceive you, at first I was trying to keep healthy, but after a few days, the frozen yoghurts, French toasts, pancakes, nut butters, stir fry noodles, thai coconut rice, omelettes made with whatever you want (literally), walnut cakes, and croissants in 5 different flavours (I always just thought there was just the plain croissant and the chocolate croissant, but who knew you could have mixed berry and apple) start wanting love and affection too. The trips to the food bar become more frequent and the face becomes chubbier. My excuse? It's a holiday and it's only for a couple of weeks.

White + Sheer

Second post in a week! You can tell that I'm obsessed with my new boots .. so I decided to put together another outfit whilst I'm still trying on every possible outfit.
The little bit of extra fabric of the sleeves on the dress makes the dress more Winter appropriate and the white colour is a fresh twist on the typical black clothing that everyone somehow seems to wear during the colder months. 
The sheer sleeves are a subtle accent and is an alluring aesthetic that gives what would be a plain dress some personality.

Same photo as last post or is it?
Note to self: Time to abandon the balayage hair and go one colour.

I'm sitting here in disbelief that I actually pressed 'Checkout' button on Shopbop for the Alexander Wang Dasha booties.  Online window shopping is the process of vicariously shopping by adding things into your 'cart' without actually purchasing anything, after all, a girl can dream right?

For months I've been searching for a pair of black boots that were versatile enough to wear out to lunch with jeans, but also formal enough to suffice as a pair of heels with a dress. When the package arrived yesterday afternoon I almost cried tears of euphoria as I opened the black box and when I tried them on.. well let's say they stayed on for the next hour. 
Hopefully I'll get enough wear out of these to justify the price.

Makeup: Autumn/Winter

This year, as part of my 'I'm going to be more cultivated' plan, I've tried to stay clear of all greasy foundations that slip off as soon as you're exposed to sunlight, and makeup wipes that do as much as a cotton pad soaked in water. Hopefully, my skin will also thank me.
