Spencer told me this is my, “be quiet and kiss me” look. 
I have returned from Phuket, Thailand inevitably two shades darker. I have a new found appreciation towards life by the beach. I would gladly trade sand up my crotch if it meant that my wardrobe would be limited to bikinis, not needing to blow dry my hair or put anything on my face besides the two suns: screen and glasses. I hope you had a wonderful New Years and that 2014 is off to a great start!

Recess: Beginnings


image

I am packing what few belongings I have in my duffle bag for my trip out to Thailand tomorrow morning. I have been longing for a vacation outside the confines of an urban city for quite some time now. Being that I seem to have been lured to reside in cities without immediate access to open seas and virginal white sand (Toronto, Japan, Singapore), I have been itching to dip my toes into warm waters. 

It’s safe to say that the few days of escape will amount to devouring copious amounts of pad thai, slathering Coppertone on my skin, salt and sand in my hair, and reading—lots of it. I have rounded up a stack of books to sink my teeth into by the pool, which should turn me into a painful shade of roasted suckling pig by the time I touch back down in Singapore. 

I hope you are all staying warm and surrounded with loved ones this holiday. Happy New Year!
