EVERYONE is either going to Thailand, it seems, or has just been there, or is there now. I have never been (yet) and am longing to go. But I've got my tickets booked to go home and see my mom at the family winter home in West Palm Beach, so I really have no right to complain. I'm thrilled to bits!
Because we were all running around like headless chickens - this challenge took place in like 20 minutes, mind you - Jen didn't realise when she wrapped a scarf round her head that Sandra happened to do the same thing. I saw them both but they weren't in the same place at the same time. Soon as Jen realised it of course she whipped it off and switched to a black hat. That's one of the many things I love about Jenny Jen.
Didn't want to just do nonstop posts from that same one Next event, but there are so many friends I want to profile. Like Sandra, of 5 inch and up. She is Finnish, you all know her blog, it's beautiful, so is she, and what amazed me was how - having just come back from Thailand - she took her style challenge and made it so... Thai. She said when she's in Thailand she just basically goes native. And as she's never seen in heels under.. well, 5 inches, it must be a great feeling for her to be barefoot the whole time she's there.
Sandra also had her hand henna'd while there, it's different than the Morrocan kind, which is more intricate, but it's a great look. Apparently it fades over time. I'm waiting for some smart cosmetics company to launch a product like that, because with all the focus on large cocktail rings right now, painted hands are sooooo chic. Doncha think?
Lovely weekend, everyone! xo
p.s. YOu know what? Your comments so far inspired me to upload a shot I took from the catamaran we chartered with friends.. not in Thailand, but the British Virgin Island. My little inspirational shot for you. And Adrielle: you might want to try out that tattoo as henna first ; )
