I am blogging today from a cozy daybed on the balcony of our totally lush suite in Chiang Mai - I feel so completely spoilt and relaxed.  It is lovely!

We plan to meet some elephants, hit some temples perhaps a cooking class and of course eat some amazing Northern Thai food.  But the main agenda for the next few days will be lots of laziness, reading, sitting by the pool and much needed rest.  Trying to keep things simple and trouble free, I want my biggest concern for the next few days to only be "what poolside outfit shall I wear?" :)

I am inspired by these gorgeous shots from the 2011/2012 High Summer Swim collection from Zimmermann... the lace, the ruffles, the floral!

However I think my Forever 21 floral maxi dresses, Cotton On oversized linen shirts and H&M bikinis will suffice this time around...

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
