33 Cool Things We Did in Koh Samui

If you're looking for a less commercialized Island getaway that even the how-to-get-there-and-from is faced with various worth it challenges, then Koh Samui, Thailand is ideal for you. The vibe is so laid back but adventures can be found anywhere. There's something serene and splendid about nature untouched by human hands. 

Woke up early to catch the sunset - only on the first day! :)
Ate King crab for dinner, shrimp for dessert and everything seafood in between :)

Had a deep conversation with my daughter about the difference of high tide and low tide

Realized that my baby really is a mermaid - a water baby indeed!

Walked and talked like we had all the time in the world :)

Took advantage of free foot spa

Swing up to our heart content

Walked a vastly wide seashore on low tide looking for at least 1meter deep water for a swim, but gave up in the end

Wrestling is better under water

Night swimming is a good idea when you arrive on the first day feeling exhausted

Taught my daughter about folk dancing - the only kind of dance I'm good at hahaha

Told the camera man to dive in water for good lighting :)

Took crab-ing seriously by heart

We're good at Kayaking if we are near the seashore

Stay adorable under the scorching heat of the sun

Read a good, funny highly entertaining book and sleep halfway through

Played beach volleyball against water

Ordered wood pizza - when pan pizza is out of order!

Packed a good lunch and had a picnic near the road under the trees

Had an early dinner with the restaurant manager

Be confident enough to wear bikinis when no one's watching

Emerged as the winner when you're competing with your past self in kayaking

Drink to dehydrate not to be hyperactive

Took your afternoon siesta under the palm trees watching every breaking wave

Did nothing

Convinced your daughter that Kayaking is a good sport - what?

Because you can't stay in the beach forever 24/7

Get lost like literally

Cleaned the backyard on the first day because tito is too busy at work

Don't worry about nature's calling, the sea is a wide comfort

To put all of these into perspective - I'm beyond blessed

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me. To the point, I recently spent a morning scrolling through a dozen items on shopping websites. Making me the perfect target consumer when it comes to social media marketing ads. Ha! Sadly, however, I can’t possibly purchase everything on my wishlist and so every now and then I blog about my current favorites hoping somebody can benefit from the fruits of my labor. While there are specific brands I love to cover on a weekly basis today I like to highlight and celebrate similar brands for cheap yet elegant staples to give you more unique and fashion-forward options. Just keep scrolling to get started shopping and see a couple of elegant dresses to keep your outfit on point.

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
