Ugh, I love this dress SO much! I’ve mentioned countless times that I am obsessed wth ruffles – and between the pastel blue and the shoulder details – this little numbers obviously this ticks all the boxes! I’ve had it up my sleeve (clothes pun, woo!) for a couple of months now, after picking it up from my beloved Shopbop. Luckily it covers my tattoos for work, but I will say it’s mighty hot – especially in the Thai heat!

What makes me really happy about this photo is definitely how dang happy I look! We went out and I tried to be all blogger-like and cute.. then I decided it’s WAY more me to just dance down the street, waving my hat through the air. And we got it. And I feel darn cute!

Speaking of cute thing – aaand Shopbop – they are having a whopping sale (I’m talking 20-30% here!) so you know where I’ll be. I snagged a bunch of cute goodies for my holiday next month. I’m heading to a beach, and I’m pretty sure you can tell through my choices! Talk about beach themed! Anyway, scroll down the tiniest amount to see my favourites (which will be in my clammy hands in no time!) or use the coupon code, EOTS17 yourself at the checkout. Go on, take a browse! I’m sure you’re at least tempted by the flamingo swimsuit!

Wat-Pa-Phu-Kon-22

Around eight or so months ago, I moved to Thailand. When I picture Thailand I basically imagine temples and brilliant weather, so it’s a bit ridiculous that I haven’t actually visited any temples since I’ve been here. Aside from when I went to Laos. But that’s not Thailand. So that’s a whole different story.

We rented a car a few weeks ago, with the mission being to explore some of the grand temples around Udon Thani, the province I live in. Grand doesn’t even begin to cover it.

First up, we visited Wa Pa Phu Kon – otherwise known as ‘Heaven on Earth’. And it’s pretty darn easy to see why!

This temple is relatively new, being built only a couple of years ago. The exterior is obviously beautiful – and it’s massively exciting when you get the first glimpse of it peeking out from the trees as you approach. The province I live in, Udon Thani is generally pretty flat, so it’s even more impressive that it’s located on one of the big hills around here. The views are seriously INSANE.

Even more grand than the views was what lies (literally!) inside the temple itself. An enormous reclining Buddha, made from Italian marble takes up the majority of the space. It’s so (so!) big we could barely even fit it in the photo – and we were using a wide angle lens.

I took a whole bunch of footage of this place too, so I’ll definitely be putting up a video sometime soon, when my laptop is sorted.

In the meantime, if you happen to be passing through Northern Thailand (Udon Thani specifically) the address of Wat Pa Phu Kon is here. So, so, SO ridiculously worth the visit!
