BEAUTY: sun exposure & protection

Beauty Talk: Sun Protection with La Roche-Posay UV-Patch | Bikinis & Passports

Generally speaking, my skin type falls into the category of “easy to get burnt”. Freckles, fair skin and blue eyes don’t necessarily speak for a southern type and I definitely don’t tan easily. Luckily though, I am pretty good at taking care of my skin and protecting it from getting burnt. I don’t think sunburns are cool and get mad at myself if even my nose is pink at the end of a day spent outside by the beach or pool….

OUTFIT: the streets of Bangkok.

OUTFIT: Bangkok, floral off-shoulder top with blush pink plisse culottes | Bikinis & Passports

Sawasdee Ka from Bangkok: Even though I love to travel and feel like I have gotten to explore many incredible destinations, Asia has never been ticked-off my list until this week. And this is just the beginning! Bangkok is so different than any city I have ever been to. It is huge, it is busy, it is a bit dirty and strange but in an intriguing way. Of course, 3 days in the Thai capital were no where near enough and I know I’ll have to come back one day, but the things that I did get to see were impressive, beautiful and new….
