Photo Dump: Thailand

When I lived in Japan, my friends and I spent a month of our spring holidays travelling around Thailand.  We started out on the islands, Koh Phangan, Koh Samui etc. and then took a night train up north to explore Sukhothai and around Bangkok.  Here is another photo dump!

Photo Dump: Japan

Those of you who've been following this blog from the start, or who are familiar with my life from elsewhere, will know that I spent my last academic year studying in Japan.  Seeing as I don't have much else to blog about right now, here are a bunch of photos from my time there!

November Wishlist #2


  1. Black Studded Belt Jersey Maxi Skirt from New Look
    I've wanted a maxi skirt for the longest time, and this one even comes with a belt and seems to be a little on the thicker side for winter, so it looks lovely.  I've had to stop myself from buying it a ton of times now because I'm just not sure what I'd even wear it with at the moment, but here's hoping I'll be able to get my hands on one soon anyway!
  2. Wool Felted Ladybirds from etsy
    I recently discovered the joys of miniature felted things on etsy, and I fell in love with these little guys.  I can just imagine them sitting in a nice bowl of positioned around some other knicknacs. 
  3. Cat Print Linen Pillow Cover from etsy
    I am a cat lady, so I basically can't resist this.  The shop has some lovely other designs, too.
  4. Barry M Nail Paint in Ruby Glitter from Superdrug
    I love these new jewel-themed polishes from Barry M.  I already have Gold Mine and Diamond and they're just lovely, but they didn't have these other ones (inc. #5) in stock.
  5. Barry M Nail Paint in Rose Quartz Glitter from Superdrug
    See above.
  6. Death Star Tin with Mints from Play.com
    I really just want a little Death Star tin to put my earrings and stuff in.  It's cute.
  7. Owl Cuff Bracelet from Accessorize
    I'm not normally the biggest fan of gold jewellery but I think the gold on this just looks damn nice, and it's a really cool design.  I love the amount of owl and animal-related accessories and patterned clothes around right now.
  8. Cat Collar with Plaid Bow Tie from etsy
    Not for me, of course!  I really want to get my cat a bow tie collar but I don't think he'd really appreciate it.  He would look very dapper, though.

Autumn leaves & self portraits.

Nothing much to report this week, so here are some photos left over from the last time I went to visit Chris (and was left in awe of the sunlight which we are so very lacking here in Manchester), plus some self portraits from earlier this evening.  I wanted to play around with my salt lamp as a light source, and it turned out kind of okay!
