Life update & next video ^_^

Hello Stranger

I don't really know how to start off this blog post because I cannot express how sorry I am for my MIA status these last 6 months >_<

I actually feel quite ashamed to say I've been neglecting my blog and Youtube channel for 6 months!!!!

Let me explain myself though because there is a legitimate explanation :)

Ok so my last blog post was when I was still in Thailand right....well since I came back to Perth, there's been a couple of big changes in my life which has taken the majority of my focus and attention.

No 1 - I finally moved into my house with my other half! You may or may not have watched my house tour video which I recorded during an inspection of the house but settlement hadn't gone through yet at that time. We officially moved into the house in late March so I was busy furniture shopping (fun fun) and settling into life living with my other half because we've never actually lived together before.

No 2 - I GOT ENGAGED!!!!! I have been very busy wedding planning because the wedding is in November this year and he only popped the question in May so I had 6 months to plan the wedding. I'm actually quite proud of myself because the planning is almost done. I've only just got some small bits and pieces left to do.

So those are the 2 biggest events that have preoccupied my time over the last 6 months but now that the wedding planning is almost done, I've got more time to focus on my blog and Youtube. I'm most probably going to be dedicating more time to my blog than Youtube just because Youtube can take up a significant amount of time and I don't want to be too stressed leading up to the wedding so I hope you guys can understand.

Ok enough about me...what am I going to be doing tomorrow? For the first time in a long time, my Saturday will actually be free so I will be filming a review video on lip crayons. If you don't know what they are, here's a pic:

On that note, goodnight for now and I'll see you tomorrow ^_^

Days 13, 14 & 15 - JJ Market & back to Siam

Happy Valentines Day!!!!

For some of you, V-day would have been yesterday like it was for me and for others on the other side of the world, it's today. Whatever it is that you did or you're going to do, I hope that it is with someone important to you. It doesn't have to be a boyfriend or girlfriend, it can be a friend, a sibling or even spending time with you mum or dad.

Ok back to my hauls for days 13, 14 & 15.

Day 13 was a Saturday and we went to JJ market which is a weekend market. It's the largest market in Thailand and apparently the world's largest weekend market as well. Either way, it's huge and I doubt you'll be able to cover the whole market in one day. You can find all kinds of goods at JJ market and because it's so big, it's really easy to get lost in one of the alleys and lose your sense of direction so make sure you're always with someone if you're planning to go there.

The prices are relatively inexpensive with most clothing items at around 300 baht or less which is equivalent to about $10 AUD.

I got this gold braided headband for a party I'm going to next Saturday and the theme is white with gold toga inspired accessories so this is perfect.

Day 11 & 12 - Squeezing in time at Siam Paragon

Good morning!

Can't believe I'm on my last week here in Bangkok but it doesn't really feel like time has passed fast which is good in a way :D

I'm a bit behind on my daily blog posts because I've had a couple of late night and early mornings so haven't found the time to blog daily and I apologise for that but I won't be missing any days.

So day 11 was last Thursday and my boyfriend and I had some stuff to do so I didn't get to shop much but we did manage to go back to Central Ladprao and squeezed in a little bit of time at Siam Paragon before it closed.

The reason I went back to Central Ladprao was just to finish off my Hello Kitty shopping >_< and this is what I got:

Day 10 - Landing at Terminal 21

Good afternoon guys ^_^

I can't believe I've been here for a week and half already and I know that all too soon, it'll be time to go home :(

I'm gonna be so sad when it's time to go back to reality....

Let's not talk about that hahahha...let's talk about what I did on day 10 which was spent mostly at Terminal 21 but a little bit at Nawamin Avenue Mall.

I have to tell you about Terminal 21 first...Terminal 21 is uniquely different from any other shopping mall in Bangkok because each level of the mall has been decorated into a "street" somewhere in the world. For example, the ground floor is decorated with inspirations from Rome and the 1st floor is recreated into the streets of Tokyo especially Harajuku Town.

Here are some pics to show you what I mean...

Am I sitting on a fountain in Rome?

Day 9 - Shopping at Platinum Mall


So the entire day 9 was spent at Platinum Mall which is the largest wholesale and retail fashion mall boasting over 2000 shops at the complex. It is one of my favourite shopping destinations in Bangkok because you can get SO many bargains there.

The way you get discounts at the shops/stalls is to buy 2 or more items because if you buy 2 or more items, you will get the discounted prices for each item which works out to be a lot cheaper than purchasing one item at the full price. I went to Platinum with my bf and his sister which was handy because sometimes I only wanted one item from a shop and my bf's sister also only wanted one item so we put it together to get the discount :D

I suggest that if you're going to shop at Platinum, go with a friend...

Most items are around the 300 baht range which is equivalent to roughly $10 AUD and if you buy 2 or more items, then the discounted price might say be 250 baht each or something like that.

Ok time to show you my haul ^_^

Let's start with jewellery first...
