Looking Back | February 2017
A chatty post on the month that was & why I've been so quiet on the blog recently.
The month started in Bangkok with mom! Our trip was just under a fortnight long & perfect in every way. The weather was mostly nice, the food amazing & the company made it just perfect. Even both of us catching a cold (thanks to one too many Thai Iced Teas) couldn’t keep us down for long. I’ve been making travel vlogs for a while now but I took vlogging really seriously on this trip. Here’s a short list of the vlogs already published, there’ll be even more up soon-
I try not to be very repetitive with destinations but by now Bangkok feels like a second home to me. I can’t wait to go back in just a few short weeks (for my birthday!) 🎂
Watching… I finally saw Wayne’s World, which is just two months older than me! It was reasonably funny. I was also glued to this show called StartUp with (with Martin Freeman & Adam Brody among others). Despite a reasonably good cast, it was so awfully written & acted by everyone. Just so bad, it was so good. Kind of like the Room of TV shows if you ask me.
Listening To… This has to be the month of Sergio Mendes! After listening to a lot of Bossa Nova for months, it was fun to discover his peppier, samba reinterpretations of Bossa songs was really refreshing (Lani Hall’s voice & English lyrics just sweeten the experience) Sergio Mendes is most known around the world for his song Mas Que Nada & the awful, unnecessary Black Eyes Peas cover sometime in the early 2000’s. Don’t let that deter you – the original’s beautiful. This is my favorite song from his album with the Brazil 66.
Buying… I bought just one item of makeup on my Bangkok trip, so the makeup buying detox is still in effect. Although I did feel my resolution waver at Suvarnabhumi airport duty free. The GoPro Hero 5 was one of my biggest purchases this month, which I bought especially for the next Bangkok trip. It seems GoPros have come a long way since the beginning although I’ve had some issues with the camera too, I’m hoping I can start using it more.

Another month, another monthly favorites video featuring a new hair tool (that I now use three time a week!) & the most delicious chocolate ever. You can watch the video below, all details & links are in the description box on the video page.
February was a great month & I’m really excited for everything the rest of 2017 has to offer. I’m working on a few more exciting posts this month & am aiming to post three times a week, along with two videos on my YouTube channel too! x
