Phuket & Phi Phi Island, Thailand

The final leg of our trip was to Phuket.

The wedding we were attending was in beautiful North Phuket at the Angsana Laguna Resort. This resort was absolutely stunning. Right by the ocean, the hotel featured a pool the wrapped around the resort, a beach club with a separate pool with DJ for adults, spacious rooms, and of course beautiful views.

Chiangmai, Thailand

Out of the 3 locations we went to in Thailand, Chiangmai was my favourite.

A beautiful city with the feel of a town, it was clean, not as busy as Bangkok with great restaurants and food.

We spent 2 great days in Chiangmai. The day of our arrival, we needed some chill time so stayed in at our hotel - the Shangri-La.

Bangkok, Thailand

Our first trip for 2018 was to beautiful Thailand!

We had been planning to travel around East Asia since last year. When we received a destination wedding invitation to Thailand, we were able to combine it with our holiday. Along with this, our good friends from the USA were also planning to attend the wedding and were able to come on a 10 day holiday with us.

We started the trip in Bangkok. We took the red eye from Dubai and arrived in Bangkok at 11am and made our way to the Banyan Tree Spa Hotel where we spent 3 nights.

No news. No shoes.

This is the way of life at Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives.

A gorgeous resort located 20 minutes away from Male by a boat, Gili Lankanfushi is a dream.

Dinner at Ruya Dubai

Food. Wine. Company.

Add to that great ambience and it makes for the perfect evening.


We recently went to Ruya Dubai for dinner after seeing that it had won Best Middle Eastern Restaurant at the What's On Awards, Dubai.

Luxury Stay at Raffles Dubai

Every year for our anniversary we try to go on a quick getaway or a staycation. For our 6 year anniversary this year the hubby planned a stay at Raffles Dubai.

You might know Raffles Dubai as the pyramid hotel, it is currently also the number 1 hotel in Dubai as per Trip Advisor so it was at the top of our list of places to stay.

As you enter the hotel the first thing you see is a stunning waterfall, a beautiful lounge and the elegant reception. We were treated to a cup of Arabic coffee as we checked in, and then were escorted to our suite by our check in assistant.

My jaw dropped as we entered the Diplomatic Suite.

LeSoie 10 in 1 Masque Reparateur

Before moving to Dubai I never had a problem with my hair. It was thick, shiny and manageable as long as I was consistent with my hair oil treatments and not using too many heat styling tools.


About 3 months after I moved to the warmer climate, I noticed that my hair was beginning to thin even though I was still oiling my hair regularly and keeping styling tool use to a minimum. My hair wasn't as strong as it use to be, it was getting oily very quickly, and it was starting to fall out more than usual.

White & Blue Summer Top | A Photoshoot with Dreambox

A 3:30am wakeup call to get to the shoot location just before sunrise- and it was totally worth it.
