My first ever vlog. Honestly, it feels horrifying.

I swear I'm not normally that quiet but my parents were in the next room. And explaining a 'vlog' to them might have caused me pain.

It doesn't feel real what I'm about to do. I don't think it's quite hit me yet that I'll be in Thailand come Saturday. Here's a blog post I did months back when I booked it detailing what I'm doing in case you're interested.

And follow me on Facebook or Twitter if you want an update along the way. Hopefully statuses will be along the lines of 'just rode an elephant', 'Bangkok 'til I die' and not 'send help'.

somewhere out there

Friday, 7 October 2011

I leave for Bangkok in one week today. I know, right? Time flies.

Here's my itinerary for those who haven't heard about it (unlikely - I can't seem to shut up about my Asian adventure). I'm a mixed bag of emotions right now: primarily excited, a little nervous, bloody panicked about some things, and regretful at the thought of missing certain people.

Of course I'll still be posting in the run-up to my departure (I was thinking of doing a vlog on what I'm taking - what do you think?) but I just wanted to say: stick with me. I will be gone for two months and blogging while I'm there is doubtful. I hope to come back and find you all still here with me <3

[OH, and if you could please take a look at my necklace sale, which ends on Sunday. I'm trying to get some money for some Kindle books. I have a lot of plane/train/bus time to kill out there.]

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I'm off to Bangkok next Friday (eeks!) and am still in a bit of financial doom. I've decided I have too many necklaces and while they all look lovely hung on hooks around the top of my bed, I cannot justify them all. The money made from these will go towards some books for my Kindle so please please take your pick so I can have some spanking new reads while I'm away.

a much-needed recap

button-down pink dress: Dorothy Perkins
black heeled desert booties: Marks & Spencer
floral box bag: Primark
denim jacket: H&M

This is what I wore on Friday evening to Prezzo with two wonderful work friends, Kirby and Luma. I gorged on some deliciously sickening carbonara al forno, followed by sticky toffee pudding and cream. Yum-my.

This is me and Kirby on Saturday night aaaat-on-the-taaaaan after a bloody awful day at work. As you can see, we thought we'd numb the pain. I forgot to get a decent picture of my dress and while I'm worried that it slightly washes me out (I wanted it in a dusky pink but they didn't have my size!) I think this beige lace flippy dress is super cute.

Don't you just love family pictures? This is myself, my sister and brother at the 02 to watch Lee Evans... except it got cancelled. Hence the sad-face picture at the end as we walked back to the car. We were completely gutted. My sister had travelled from Devon, it was a late Christmas present, I booked my trip around it etc etc. BUT all is not lost. We can thankfully go to the rescheduled day of next Monday - phew.

We still enjoyed our evening eating at Pizza Express, watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with too much Ben & Jerry's and singing 'Hopelessly Devoted' - quite beautifully might I add - in the car on the way home at the top of our lungs. Much to the delight of my father.
