Rosegal Review : Chic & Sporty Affordable Looks


Rosegal recently contacted me asking if I'd like to receive a few items for review and they have such a great selection of affordable fashion I thought why not try them out so I picked up a couple things which I thought would suit my current style and after a week they all arrived safely at my door.

Rosegal Galaxy Print Vest

Galaxy prints will forever be one of my favourite styles so I picked up this galaxy fringe print vest as I thought it would be a great piece to dress up or down and it's prefect for the humid Thai weather. It's so light and soft, I pretty much live in tank tops here, especially black ones so I've been wearing this piece a lot and the fringe give the top and interesting new detail, which my cat is a big fan of!

Rosegal Embriodered Pants

Since receiving these baggy embroidered pants (which were actually from the men's section) I've hardly had them off, they're just so comfy, I've literally been living in them! They're really great quality to and the embroidered detail is so pretty so I'm super pleased with them and the vest. Sometimes when you buy things at a lower price you have to compromise on quality but both these items were really great quality for their price and are items that I will be able to wear and wash for a long time, so if you're looking for a wardrobe update be sure to check Rosegal out.

What's your favourite fashion trends?

Juku Store Review: Kawaii Japanese Fashion & Accessories


Juku Store, a kawaii harajuku fashion online retailer recently contacted me asking if they could send me a few products for review and as a big Japanese street fashion enthusiast I happily took their offer. Juku Store offers great Japanese fashion at great prices and ships worldwide, you may find a lot of Japanese retailers don't offer international postage so this it's a great alternative to buy from if you want to dress like the highly fashionable Harajuku kids.

Juku Store Totoro T-Shirt

My Neighbour Totoro is one of my all time favourite anime and as soon as I saw all their cute Totoro themed t-shirts I knew I had to have one for myself. The design is so cute and there are several to choose from, the material is super soft and comfy to and I love the baggy fit of it, perfect to wear for just chilling around the house or going out searching for acorns...

Juku Store Death Note Necklace

Juku Store also offers a lot of items for Cosplay and some cute anime themed accessories to, Death Note has always been one of my favourite anime and manga series but it's rare to find things related to it now so it was a nice surprise to see this Death Note necklace which also doubles up as a watch, the perfect accessory to show your love for the series.

Juku Store Koi Fish Emboidered T-Shirt

In contrast to the cutesey kawaii fashion you can also find some more darker styles and one of my all time favourite Japanese styles has been the traditional embroidery painting style so as soon as I saw this embroidered koi fish t-shirt I fell in love, it's so beautiful and just as beautiful in real life as it appears online, this is one item I will definitely be getting a lot of wear out of!

Juku Store GOT7 Bracelet

Even more surprising to me was seeing that they sell a small selection of KPop items to and we all know I'm a big lover of Kpop especially GOT7 so seeing this GOT7 bracelet for sale I just had to, it's the perfect accessory to show my love for them.

Juku Store Koi Fish Emboidered T-Shirt Death Note Necklace

I absolutely adore all the items I got and there's such a great selection to suit everyone's tastes, so if you're looking for some great kawaii fashion and cosplay items be sure to check out Juku Store and let me know what you think.

What's your favourite fashion styles?

Kosmeshop Review: LENS TOWN Aloha Candy Gray Contact Lenses


I absolutely adore wearing coloured lenses and I change up my eye colour almost as often as my outfits! I'm shortsighted so these lenses are not just for cosmetic reasons, I need them to see and sometimes when shopping for coloured lenses I find they don't come in my prescription or the range of colours can be limited so I normally order online but even then it can be hit and miss as the colours often don't match photos. I've purchased from Kosemeshop in the past and always been a big fan of their lenses so when they offered to send me some lenses from their new Lens Town Aloha Candy range to review I happily obliged and was excited to see how they'd look.


Sometimes when buying coloured lenses the colours often don't stand out against my brown eyes but what I love most about Asian brand contact lenses is how much the colour stands out, these grey lenses looked so pretty and the colour wasn't lost at all they look exactly how they do in the bottle.


These lenses are very comfy, I've worn them for both short and long periods of time and not experienced any irritation or drying. You can experience some shadowing wearing coloured contacts (where the lense can cover the iris) but despite how pigmented these lenses are I experienced none of that and they blended in with my eyes well, without looking too artificial.


Kosmeshop is a great place to buy popular lenses from trusted Korean brands, you can also buy idol collaborations there, I recently purchased the Monsta X collection and Blackpink also has a collection to! Shipping is very fast, my lenses arrived in about 1 week and they also include lens cases and a bunch of other freebies with your purchase and you can even earn points on your purchases which will go towards saving you money on your next purchases and most importantly they ship worldwide so I totally recommend you check them out!

Do you like wearing coloured lenses?
Love & Candy

The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

Wat Rong Khun also known as The White Temple is probably the most popular attraction in Chiang Rai, I've seen so many beautiful photos of this temple over the years and have always wanted to visit there and this year I finally got the chance to see it with my own eyes, and it was just so stunning.

The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

There are many temples in Thailand but what makes this one unique is it's bright white colour which symbolises the purity of Buddha. The temple is designed by artist Chalermchai Kositpipat and is full of interesting details from the creepy sea of hands by the temple entrance, to the depictions of popular characters like Batman, Sailor Moon and even Pikachu inside the temple, it really is something you need to take in with your own eyes.

The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

There were several bus loads of tourists on the day we visited but there were still lots of quiet areas you could just sit and enjoy the surroundings. The White Temple is the main attraction but there's also a golden temple and patches of greenery where you can sit and meditate, the artist himself also lives on the site and is constantly working on bringing his vision to life because as of now the temple still remains unfinished.

The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

There are so many different temples in Thailand but they never cease to amaze me with their beauty, Wat Rong Khun is really amazing and understandable one of the most popular attractions in Thailand, I really can't wait to see Chalermchai Kositpipat full vision for this temple come to life.

What's the most unique place you've ever visited?

Cute Cafe Shops in Bangkok - Matchbox / Pink Planter Cafe

Matchbox - Pink Planter Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

I'm on a mission to visit as many cute cafes and stores as I can in Bangkok and I'm loving this trend of every cute shop having their own cute cafe. Last month I shared with you one of my favourite hidden gems so I thought this month I would share a slightly more popular place in Thailand but although these stores can be found in quite a few malls around Bangkok it's location in Siam Square is the only one to have its own cafe.

Matchbox - Pink Planter Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Matchbox - Pink Planter Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Matchbox call themselves a multi-brand store as it's exactly that you can find everything here from clothing from independent Thai designers to make-up from international brands like Limecrime. Prices can vary depending on the brands but there is a wide variety of choice to suit all styles, they also host sales and have special offers there quite frequently so it's worth following them on Instagram to keep up to date with them and what's happening.

Matchbox - Pink Planter Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Matchbox - Pink Planter Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Pink Planter Cafe is unique to Matchbox's Siam Square store and is one of the most aesthetically cute pink cafes I've ever been to which of course meant I had to order the pinkest drink on the menu! They also serve desserts to and after seeing it all over Instagram I was hoping to try out their ice cream candyfloss burger but unfortunately they had already sold out that day, but I'll definitely be back to try it another day! Pink Planter also does different collaborations with different dessert shops every few months and changes up their menu, so every visit will be a new experience and just like Pixie Dust Cafe they also host Kpop events so it's definitely worth checking in there after a hot day of shopping.

Whats the cutest cafe you've ever visited?

Chic & Sporty Wishtlist from Rosegal


Rosegal is a great store with so many different items at great prices that I thought with my birthday coming up and my wish to start working out and getting fit again that I would check out what sportswear they have to offer and put myself together a cute little outfit, because looking good is a great way to motivate you to feel good!

♥  Baseball Cap - I like to wear a hat when I workout as it keeps my hair (and my sweat) out of my face and this cap made me giggle, the perfect motivation to work out.

♥  Hoodie - Hoddies are my favourite thing and I've been wanting to get myself a red one for a while this one is so cute and perfect to wear whilst working out.

♥  Jogging Pants - So these might not look practical for working out but they're baggy so give you room to move and the zip pockets are great for keeping your belongings safe whilst you're bouncing around

♥  Sneakers - Because you need the right shoes to work out in and these look super chic and super comfy!


What motivates you to workout?
Love & Hearts

GOT7 Birthday Wishlist - Gifts for an Ahgase


It's my birthday in a few days so the perfect time to treat myself right!? I'll admit right now I've gone a bit crazy with the GOT7 merchandise already this year and I probably should cut back but there are so many more cute things I want in my life, pretty much all my money goes on these 7 boys now be it on food, clothing, concerts, club membership and everything and anything else they endorse with their faces on and although I have a lot of stuff already I still want more, so here are a few things I've had my eye on recently.... 

♥ 3rd Sibling First Edition Double Hoodie - If you didn't already know 3rd Sibling is a brand created by Mark Tuan's sister, who's created some really chic designs with beautiful meanings behind them. I absolutely adore this hoodie in particular as it's completely my aesthetic but I would totally wear any of the designs they're selling and I'm all for support the people who support my boys and helping their dreams become a reality.

♥ Jackson Eyes On You World Tour Pin - Whilst I was in the merchandise line for the Bangkok concert earlier this year I watched as every pin sold out, these were the one thing I really wanted to buy more than anything else that day and I hoped I would at least get the "Eyes On You" Tour pin but that sold out moments before I reached the front, how sad! But I'm hopeful if I can't get them all I'll at least get Jackson.

♥ Ahgabong Enamel Pin - I love this pin not just because it's an ahgabong but because it glows in the dark!! It would be the most perfect addition to my little ahgabong collection.

♥ JB Chicken Doll - GOT7 fans are just so talented and creative and there's so much amazing fan made stuff available that I had to share this one that caught my eye because it's just so cute and hilarious. It's one of those things that only Ahgase will really understand and I love it and need it in my life already! Oh and JB actually has one!

♥ Ahgase World Tour T-Shirt - This design is just so beautiful and I think this tour will forever have a special place in my heart. I've grown to love these boys so much and they're a big part of my life now, we've achieved so much, been to new places, grown and made a bunch of new friends along the way. Seeing this design is like a happy memory of everything positive that's happened to us this year and the year isn't even over yet!  

♥ GOT7 Gotoon Baby Figures - If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my Jackson and JB figures which I love taking photo of in all the places that I get to visit, I literally take them everywhere with me and I would love to get a whole set of them to take out and photograph in different places, they're just so cute!  

♥ Ahgabong LED Ring - This was one of the items I was hoping to get when I saw them in Japan last year but it was unfortunately already sold out when I got there and it can be difficult to get Japanese merchandise if you're overseas but hopefully one day I'll get one as it'll be the perfect accessory to wear to all their concerts.

What's on your birthday wishlist?

The Erawan Museum - Bangkok - Thailand

The Erawan Museum - Bangkok - Thailand

I'm always asked what places there are to visit that are not commonly known to tourist in Thailand and The Erawan Museum is always my reply. Honestly, living in Bangkok,  I've never really done the tourist thing, I've yet to visit Wat Pho, The Grand Palace and Wat Arun but as The Erawan Museum is quite near to where I live I've made a few visits there and I frequently pass the huge three-headed elephant on the highway, but seeing it up close is a must!

The Erawan Museum - Bangkok - Thailand

Even seeing this huge elephant from the highway doesn't quite prepare you for how huge it actually is up close, this massive sculpture is 29 metres high, 39 metres long and stands on a 15 meter high pedestal, so yeah... it's big! The Erawan Museum was created by a late Thai millionaire to house ancient artifacts from his collections for visitors to come see, he's also the one responsible for The Sanctuary of Truth and the nearby Ancient City which are places recommended visiting to.

The Erawan Museum - Bangkok - Thailand

Inside the elephant houses the museum which is decorated with antiques and statues that reflect the story of life and the cosmos, there's so much detail put into the staircase alone that will amaze you, you really need to take some time to look at it closely to appreciate it, it's such a beautiful and vibrant place.

The Erawan Museum - Bangkok - Thailand

As you journey through the elephant towards it's head you really realise just how huge it is, there's a window in the belly of the elephant which you can sit next to and look out of and then you realise just how tall it is. The head of the elephant contains antique Buddha statues and so peaceful and serene, it really is such a beautiful way to display these ancient relics.

The Erawan Museum - Bangkok - Thailand

Surrounding the three-headed elephant is a beautiful garden full of statues of mythical creatures and of course more elephants, it's a great place to just sit back and relax from the hustle and bustle of the city, there's also a cafe there where you can buy food and drinks should you need to cool down. So if you're looking for somewhere in Bangkok to visit that's slightly off the tourist track I really recommend The Erawan Musuem and maybe pairing it with a visit to The Ancient City to, it's easily accessible by Skytrain and taxi so be sure to check it out if you're in the city.

Summer Shopping @ Zaful

Thailand OOTD

I recently decided to clear out my wardrobe so decided to check out Zaful to pick up some new items to wear on my trip up to Northern Thailand. Zaful have a great selection of fashionable women dresses but as my summer style has been drifting away from the usual top fashionable dresses I decided to pick up some cute tees instead.

Thailand OOTD

One of the things I love most about Zaful is just how diverse their selection is and as my style is gearing more towards the chic and sporty vibe there are some affordable sport items you can select for really great prices, which are so comfy not just for sports but for travelling to.

Thailand OOTD

Zaful is one of my favoerite online stores and their service is always quick and excellent and they're always quick to respond to any problems you may have. Zaful unconditional refund with quality, non-received, size Issue within 24 hours which is great service should you need to get your problem resolved quickly, so I totally recommend them and if you're looking to place an order soon check out the discount codes at the bottom of this post.

I almost forgot to post today because I totally didn't realise that July was over! This month has been really crazy, I've hardly slept, I seem to eat all my meals standing up, I'm juggling about 20 different projects but life is good.

Cute Cafe Shops in Bangkok - Daddy and the Muscle Academy / Pixie Dust Cafe

Cute Cafe Shops - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

There is a currently trend in Bangkok for every cute shop to have their own cute cafe and I love it! These "Cafe Shops" seem to be popping up everywhere and I feel like it's my mission to visit them all I mean there's nothing better than just relaxing in a cute cafe after a long day shopping and these places are perfect for both with the added bonus that don't have to trek around in the hot Thai heat to find a nice place to grab a refreshing drink because they're right there in the store!

Daddy & the Muscle Academy - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Daddy & The Muscle Academy - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Daddy and the Muscle Academy is one of my favourite stores in Bangkok because unlike most of the other "Cafe Shops" I've visited they stock their own clothing designs as well as vintage clothing and items from other independent indie designers which I'm a big supporter of. The whole shop is decorated in kawaii kitsch style which reflects the brand well and definitely worth a visit if you're a lover of cute and unique things. While the prices may be higher than a lot of other stores in the area it's worth it as this is store is unlike most others as it's a shop that supports, promotes and showcases indie artists and designers who produce products and clothing that are unique and can't be found anywhere else.

Pixie Dust Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Pixie Dust Cafe - Siam Square - Bangkok - Thailand

Pixie Dust Cafe is a small cafe located in the back of the store which sells really cute drinks and cakes, they often host events for Kpop fans to where they give away specially designed cup sleeves for idold birthdays and anniversaries so it's worth keeping up with their Instagram to check out when these events are happening. The decor of the shop lives up to its name as it's like something straight out of a fairy tale and their Butter Beer is out of this world, it's so good it's possibly one of the best drinks I've ever had in Bangkok so needless to say I'm a regular there!


What brands do you think should open up their own cafe?
