Picture perfect!


girl_portrait_thailand

I’m never quite satisfied with my headshots, not because I don’t think the photographer is adequate but mostly because I’m a girl and always pick out the smallest flaws when it comes to myself. Yes… I’m one of those who likes things to be perfect. That’s why I’m so proud of my boyfriend and his photography as he pretty much always nails when it comes to taking my picture. Actually anyone’s photo to be honest. The photo above is taken by him and most of my outfit pictures too. Make sure you check out his work on EverythingTom he’s available for hire!

For inspiration also check out his facebook page.

Elephant polo and weekend fun!


You have no idea how happy I am about it being friday. Only 5 hours of work today. I’m definitely making myself a fatty lunch today just to celebrate. Did someone say carbonara? I think I’ll swing my the gym after work though, as I’m planning to have fun times this weekend. I’ll be at the King’s Cup Charity Elephant Polo Tournament on Saturday. I’m SO excited. Tom’s been hanging out there with his booth which is Casa Azul merged with Day Of The Dead beers. Meaning mexican drinks and food, and daytime drinking in the sun. And I’m really up for that… I love spiced up slushies. The fact that they are playing elephant polo is also pretty awesome. Elephants and monkeys are my favourite animals. The cup is held by Anantara at the river so if you’re up for some nice weekend chilling by the Chao Phraya river you better come here. I also heard that the elephants are from Surin. So they’re pretty much my brothers and sisters. 😀

Cheese from Spain and Muay Thai


I’ve been away from writing lately, but for those days you can follow me on snapchat or instagram. The weekend was chill.  We’ve been at Ikea… one of my most favorite places in the world. Don’t ask me why…Hanging out at Tom’s restaurant Casa Azul, which has the best game setup in Bangkok, AND nachos if anyone is into that (who isn’t?!) .

I tried Muay thai with Tom at the Kru Dam gym. My shin is bruised. No kidding. It was really fun, but definitely something I need to get used to. My kicks sucks. My mom is in Thailand now, and brought me lots of yummy cheese and cold cuts from Spain, and my favourite Ajo and Perejil stocks that can be used to make the best carbonara EVER. So if you’re in the neighborhood you know where to go for eats! She’s heading to Surin to visit my grandparents first so I’ll be following her next weekend for some family times. I seriously can’t wait.

I’m missing my family so much these days and hoping my siblings will move down here someday soon. Oh, how school and work is always in the way, hehe. I’ve also started cooking at home. I’m sick of working around soi 11, there’s hardly any good food  there. I’ve said to myself I won’t stress with dieting or finding a new workout program until April starts… but when I start cooking at home I get so obsessed with egg white omelets, rice and chicken, broccoli and salads haha. But… going out shopping for food also makes me go crazy over the cereals and chips on the shelves as well. But it honestly doesn’t bother me. April it is, no stress.

Love my new shoes! So plain and comfy. Been looking for these for ages!!!

Oh Tuesday again… the longest working day of the week. It actually isn’t that bad. But hard to get any extra work done when I get home at 11 in the evening. But then again, I do have the whole day for myself before work seeing I don’t start until 3, which is AWESOME. The clock is about to turn in Norway though, so It will be one hour earlier from the 25th which will be a good change.

What are you doing on this long Tuesday?

Luxe dream


Valentines day is right around the corner. For some, this doesn’t mean anything… for some this is a day where couples finally get to hang out after long days of work or stress. It could be a romantic dinner, a beautiful getaway, or maybe a little token of affection to show some extra appreciation for your loved ones. I came over this new brand called Rene Mouris, and now; as they are launching in Thailand, they have a 50-68% discount on their watches. They are selling them through Lazada, so make sure you take a look if you’re thinking about getting something for your lover, or even friend!

Since Renè Mouris is so new on the market here in Thailand, I thought I’d throw in some words for you about the brand. It’s a french purveyor of luxury timepieces, blending eminent craftmanship to create watches that are classic, elegant and most important affordable to all. I’m not very girly when it comes to watches, so I like them big, classy, and to have as little details as possible. It’s also very important that the quality is high, as you will be wearing your watch daily, and most likely for a long time. For me; the Luxe dream watches was a perfect match. You should also take a look at the male watches, I love them even more than the ones for girls.

Bar crawling and exams


The few days of cold weather we had is long gone. Long days of heat is back, it’s hard to believe it’s winter here in Thailand. I’m not going to complain. On one side it was nice to be able to wear jeans and long sleeves again, but on the other side It was freezing hopping on a bike on the way from work at night time. You can’t have it all they say.  Talking about not having it all, I NEED to start my days by the pool now that the sun is back. I’m so white it’s awkward at times.I’ve been sitting so much inside lately it’s a joke. Studying and office work all day makes you white and tired looking. Anyone have any tips on how to concentrate while studying out in the sun? That  would be a much better idea for next term…

I removed my hair extensions the other day. It was so painful and took me almost 2 hours! It’s never been that bad before, I wonder where it went wrong, it’s never grown that fast before I think. Normally it’s about 1-2 cm longer when I remove them but this time it might have been around 4-5 cm out, so that was fun.. No more extensions for years now. Don’t get me wrong, I love long hair with lots of volume, and it really is worth it, but your head needs to breathe. Especially in the gym.

Diego loves photos… ehm….

You really appreciate weekends when you work every weekday. And this weekend has been extra good as my brain is not stressed over an exam at the moment. On we went to have a massage, ate som tam and chicken, so standard Anita I know… then we finally went to Wine Depot in our soi and it was quite good, a couple of glasses of wine later we went to Caza Azul in Ari for some more wine, coronitas and Nachos. We also visited bar in Ari for some drinks before we finished it of at Otto bar at the end of our soi. I’ve always thought it was one of those shady bars, and I guess you can say it is… but the live music was really good. I definitely think we will go back. I was going to meet Lotta for lunch early yesterday but managed to stay in bed until one, I have no idea what happened, but it felt good! We spent the whole day shopping and eating around central world and Siam. So much fun.

We’re soon off to the post office to get my package that I get sent as a gift the other day. Wonder how much I’m going to have to pay..sigh. Then I’m back to work again!
What are you cuties up to today?
