Chic Stays: Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort, Krabi

Before I took this trip, I'd been craving a beach break for a long while (my idea of a proper holiday is typically British - sun, sea and sand, on repeat!) Living in Singapore the past three years, I'd had my fill of short-escape city breaks which, although often a lot of fun, end up just being shopping/eating/market excursions, and do a bit more damage to my bank balance than I'm comfortable with (*ahem* Bangkok!)

My Top Time-Saving Beauty Essentials

Like most women, my time is precious and limited in the mornings. My goal is to get out the door as quickly as possible, which means minimal fuss when it comes to my beauty routine! These seven products I've discovered in Singapore have been fabulous time savers for me, and so I thought I'd write a post to share them with you all!

[The Shortlist] Picks of the Week


The perfect slouchy dress, and I love the fact this has pockets. I picked this up in Zara just last month paired with both sandals, trainers and dressed up with heels and a clutch. 

These are available to order online and have been on my wish list for a while - the lace up detail at the front means you can definitely loosen and tighten according to your calf size. 

Really loving Maria Black's jewellery line right now - a mixture of delicate vs structured gold and silver jewellery. My favourite is the hand/finger bracelet which adds a touch of boho chic to any outfit. 

5. Balenciaga City Bag 
The City is just one of those 'it' bags that just looks perennially chic. When it comes to designer, you can buy new, but theres nothing wrong with a pre-loved piece. For discounted new designer goods, head to Reebonz, alternatively keep checking back at sites like StyleTribute or Vestaire Collective
