Grand Hyatt Christmas
Wearing my cute new 'Smile' Sweater  from New Look. How could it not make me smile?!
And realising Jakarta is so much more festive than Korea ever was!
Just looking at my latest Chanel polish - Taboo - sooo pretty!
Making my apartment into a wintry wonderland. More photos in a post soon!

Apologies for the unannounced blogging hiatus. I'm not going to say I've been so busy that I didn't have time to blog because, well....that would be a lie! There's just so many new places to visit/see/eat/shop and I've also...perhaps...been enjoying doing nothing sometimes too. Once in a while it just feels good to take a break and have no commitments.  Anyway, I'm very ready to get back into blogging again now, even though I've been enjoying doing nothing much I've had this niggling guilt that I should be keeping in touch with you lovelies! So I'll be getting back to my old routine of regular posts 2-3 times a week now. Promise!

So, it's been a while, how's your December going? Who else is getting ridiculously excited about Christmas?

  1. Sounds like a lovely time! I would pretty much kill for your master bedroom, as well, how gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing your winter wonderland :) | YouTube

    1. Thank you sweetie. Yes, I love our new master bedroom, the floor and big window in particular just make the room for me. Indonesia is famous for beautiful hardwoods so I'm very glad we got some of it in our place :) x

  2. What a lovely post! great idea to find the little things that makes you happy!

    lovely blog too!

  3. We missed you! What about putting an interesting wall decal above your bed? They have wonderful gold lame ones, or shapes in bright neon colors/neutrals/pastels.

  4. Seems like you've been settling in to your new city well! Love that Starbucks gold sleeve. x

  5. I love your Smile jumper. Couldn't believe it when I saw it was from New Look. Want one. Glad you're settling in well xx

  6. Install a canopy above your bed! :)

  7. Looks like the move is treating you well, cant wait to see the fully decorated place!

  12. Your photography is so beautiful :)

  13. Glad you found the Starbucks gold sleeve, yay :)

  14. Wow! Jakarta is getting so much more Westernized by the year! When we came Christmas didn't seem so festive at all. Indonesians do know how to bling out and be festive don't they - so ALL OUT! I am glad you are loving it!
