An Overnight Stay at Amari Watergate Bangkok - The Perfect Hotel For A Girls Getaway!

Picture this, we arrived in Bangkok after 29 hours of travelling from London Heathrow and my emotions are all over the shop, part of me wants to crawl under the duvet for a week, another part wants to shower like I've been at a four day festival and the other part wants to sit on the floor in the hotel lobby and cry because I'm so tired I can't even. So, I guess that's what over a days worth of travelling straight does to you guys.

We jumped in a taxi from the airport and headed to our hotel, we pulled up outside the Amari Watergate hotel in Bangkok, all of my jet-lagged woes instantly melted and I instantly fell in love. My first impressions were 'wow, there's no one else I'd rather be here with than my best girlfriend' - the hotel was the perfect chic city break option in my eyes!

Rooftop pool complete with bar (and uh-mazing cocktails)?! Check! Bang opposite a hugeeeeeee shopping complex (I went last time I visited Thailand and it's also a must!)? Check! Happy hour with all the wine, cocktails and bar snacks you could dream of? Check! They also had an incredible rooftop bar area with superb views over the sparking city, big squishy beds that we had to peel ourself from, a gorgeous roll top bath (which I also found difficult to leave!) just in case it wasn't selling it enough for you already!

The hotel was a perfect choice for an overnight stay and I'd highly recommend it to any BFF's looking for some girl time in the dynamic city of Bangkok! All girl talk aside though, the hotel was an all-rounding for me so whether you're looking to travel with a partner (definitely romantic views from the bar!), as a family or solo - this hotel caters for all needs and one I'd definitely recommend looking into staying at if you're visiting Bangkok. The hotel is only a 20 minute taxi journey from Suvarnabhumi airport with good train links to the city centre also, room prices are also competitive for a luxury hotel, a definite must!

If you're looking to stay at the hotel then you can book rooms here - make sure you check out their gallery too as the pictures on their site are incredible! (and don't even do the hotel justice - you  need to see this one for yourself guys!)

Holiday Beauty: Bobbi Brown 'Beach' Collection & A Must-Have SPF!

Beach Shower Gel | Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base |  Beach eau de parfum | Beach Body Lotion

A while back I was introduced to the Bobbi Brown Beach collection and instantly fell in love, I took the Beach eau de parfum to a recent trip to Portugal with me and absolutely loved it, it's such a fresh scent and perfect for daily wear on holiday! When I was packing for Thailand I knew instantly that I wanted to bring this collection with me as I'm away for a month so it made sense to pack bigger products to last for the duration.

The Shower Gel also smells divine as it's a blend of sand jasmine, sea spray and mandarin - a really lovely scent for holiday! The Beach Body Lotion has the same scent as the shower gel and fragrance and is really soothing and moisturising so it's also great to use if you're sunburnt or your skin has dried out from travelling. It has a pump lid which I love as you don't overuse the product and I'm hoping it will last my trip if I use it daily!

Another favourite Bobbi Brown product which I love for holidays is the Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base as it's a great product to use daily for a facial SPF or it's also great in the evenings to wear under makeup as it's still warm in the evenings still, I love this product and get so much wear out of it on holiday - definitely a must have!

What are your holiday essentials? Are you a fan of Bobbi Brown products?

After 29 hours straight of travelling to Bangkok, a disrupted night of sleep (damn jet lag) and a flight, bus and boat to the beautiful island that is Koh Samui we have finally arrived at Tongsai Bay resort and wow, I'm so unbelievably speechless! When we walked into our villa I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, it was just stunning - the most beautiful place I've ever stayed by a long shot (I'll do a post brimming with pictures fear not) but I just had to pinch myself at how wonderful it is!

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all my incredible readers who have stuck with me over my blogs journey for the last three years, when I started this blog I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams that it would open doors for me like it has. I got my incredible job because of my blog, I've met some absolute babes who I am so proud to call some of my best friends who I know will be there for life and I get to experience some amazing opportunities and I honestly couldn't be more grateful.

I'm so, so happy that I can bring you all with me on my trip to Thailand and Malaysia, we'll be staying in a mix of high end hotels (mainly for one or two nights) and also staying in guest houses/hostels too. I wanted to share with you all a mix of backpacking and luxury travelling to accommodate all of my readers and to share some tips on how to make the best of both worlds.

So, in short I just wanted to say thank you! Thank you for reading my blog and for making these incredible opportunities my life and for attempting to turn my hobby into a career, I'm so happy that I can share my journey with you all and am so, so grateful for everything, thank you

Today is the day. I'm setting off on my four week adventure to Thailand and Malaysia with my best friend and I couldn't be more excited. Right now we'll be on the way to Mumbai to catch our connecting flight to Bangkok, I'm planning to catch up on a tonne of blogging and reading some Linsey Kelk on the journey, the last few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind and I'm so looking forward to having some time out relaxing and exploring the unknown.

A few weeks back I did a post on my thoughts of Wanderlust and how I feel like it's always been a presence there in the back of my mind, I've always had a burning desire to travel and now I feel like there's nothing stopping me, now is my time to shine and to explore the world. I can't wait to document my trip and share it with you all, I'd strongly urge anyone wanting to travel to take the leap of faith and to go for it, there's nothing more exhilarating and fulfilling than chasing your dreams, in the end you're living your life for you and you need to know that you're capable of living your dream.

I came across this quote on Pinterest 'not all those who wander are lost' and I loved it - I felt like it just summed up where I'm at right now. I don't feel lost but I feel like some life changes lately have left me a little uncertain on life, I've not been on my own for six years and now I feel like it's time to find out what truly makes me happy. 

Here's to the trip of a lifetime and being fortunate enough to share my journey with you all!

I can't quite believe how quick it's come around but tomorrow me and Amy set off for a four week adventure around Thailand and Malaysia - we are both so, so excited but it just feels so surreal! We're trying to tie up any loose ends and spending the day catching up with family and finishing packing. I'll be documenting my whole trip on my blog which I'm so excited to share with you all, I'll also be sharing on my social channels using the hashtag #FMIFTravels in case you want to come along for the journey, I'm so incredible excited to explore Malaysia as I've never been before!

As our trip was nearing so quickly I thought I'd round up my holiday essentials and share them with you as I'm packing (the mammoth task that it was - I'm sure you can only imagine!). I'll kick off with my new Rayban Clubmaster Fleck sunnies as they have recently launched their #ElectrifySummer campaign which I'm sure you've probably seen around - make sure you tag any images with the hashtag if you're sharing a snap of your favourite Raybans! I adore the club master style and can't wait to take my Raybans for a spin in Thailand!

I'm also packing my cute White Stuff printed clutch, I usually pack my jewellery or makeup in this pouch then double it up as a clutch bag when I'm there to brighten up a casual outfit. It also comes with a tan strap so it's perfect for daytime too. I recently got these crochet espadrilles from Superdry which I love as they are so comfy they feel like I'm wearing slippers! They will be great for beach days and travelling and only cost £16.99 too which I thought was so reasonable for Superdry!

I'm also packing my black suede 'Kensington' watch from Abbott Lyon which I'll also be wearing to the airport (to make sure we don't miss our flights and all that jazz, eeek!), I love the suede strap and can see myself getting a lot of wear from this watch this Summer!

What are your holiday essentials? Spot any of your favourites in this post?

Lately I've noticed so many beauty products coming onto the market that claim to have the same or similar effects as surgical procedures. I wanted to do a round up of some products that I've been trying lately that go 'above and beyond' standard products.

Last month I was invited to an event with Transform clinic in Glasgow where they were showcasing non-surgical procedures live at the event to demonstrate how quick and easy the procedures are. Non surgical procedures include fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal and lip enhancements - non surgical treatments are much more affordable and also have a really quick turnaround time and some can even be done in your hour long lunch break at work.

I've always been a fan of sonic cleansing brushes and have really been enjoying this one from Crystal Clear, it comes in a wash bag with a skin repair cream, soothing cleansing gel and skin polish for a complete skincare routine. This set would make a great gift and I've found myself using this set a lot lately as the sonic brush leaves my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.

I blogged about the Bliss Fat Girl Slim arm perfecting cream the other day and have really been enjoying trialling it over the last couple of weeks, I've found the skin on my arms has felt much firmer since using it and it's a great preparation product in time for your summer holiday. Another favourite product right now is the Murad Youth Builder Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser which helps to draw out any impurities from the skin and leaves it feeling hydrating. I love the idea of a body cleanser and can see myself using this a lot over summer.

Do you have any non surgical beauty products that you love using? Spot any of your favourites?
