Saying “I do”!
February 24, 2011

Omelette on Strawberry Toast

After a tasty breakfast, I spent my morning immersed in numerous wedding sites, blogs, venues, you name it. With lots of friends engaged, including myself, I constantly have wedding related thoughts on the brain. Not going to lie, Stephen and I have probably thought up every idea possible as far as where to have our wedding. So while the “where” & “when” questions are still to be determined, I want to share some of our thoughts as far as the small details! After all it’s the little things that make it all come together (along with good company!) πŸ™‚

Love these colors!

Okay no we are not going to have a peacock walk down the aisle with us, if that’s what you’re thinking! We snapped a picture of this peacock a few weeks ago at a nearby zoo and immediately thought these would be amazing wedding colors.

Chandeliers, string lights, we like it all!

Small Details

Cake Pops!

Dessert Bar? Maybe!

Lots of ideas! I’m so tempted to walk into one of the many Wedding Studios I see here and try on a dress. Just for the fact that I could say I tried on a wedding dress in Thailand, that’s just a fun statement to say πŸ™‚

Wedding Studio ~ Pattaya, Thailand

Alright folks, our kitchen is closed tonight. We decided to be lazy and order some Thai Take-Out while we watch American Idol. Hope you have a great Thursday!

Several things making me Smile
February 15, 2011

I LOVE these comfy Thai pants & my roses from Stephen!

Not only am I smiling for pretty flowers, but I am loving these blue cotton pants! I became overwhelmed when I found them in a range of different colors…decisions, decisions! I finally decided on dark purple & blue.

I was lucky when I found some current magazines in the staff room at work today. This article in the British edition of Glamour Magazine caught my eye! I’m always looking for advice on how to look AWAKE at 7am!

World's LONGEST Kiss! The couple in the middle won after 46 hrs!

Yes, Stephen and I actually witnessed the world’s longest kissing contest that has hit the press in Pattaya & around the world! While it started 6am Sunday, we witnessed it on Monday evening! Apparently the winning couple kissed for about 46 hours…crazy! For more details click here!

Sweet Treat!

Finally, I can’t end this post without sharing my indulgence of the day. One teacher brought this to lunch today and was nice enough to share πŸ™‚ Not even sure what it’s called but I can tell you it was tasty! Let’s just say I saw my friend – the GYM, this afternoon.

 

The Lifestyle
February 12, 2011

While Food and Fashion are the key ingredients that deliver Dressed to Dish, it’s the lifestyle I live that makes me happy. I decided to create this page because I wanted to emphasize the fact that I strive to lead a healthy “dressed to dish” life. In between all the food, clothes and accessories, there’s a balance to my life. That means while I may devour an entire pizza to myself, the next day I am making up for it through healthy eating & exercise. I am a health nut at heart.

A HEALTHY BALANCE if I ever saw one – Salad & Fries! Life’s no fun if you can’t INDULGE.

Honestly when I first started blogging, I thought I would never blog about my workout habits and healthy tendencies. Why? This was because I felt there would be pressure on me to follow through with it…what if I slipped up and didn’t workout for a week, would I tell my readers? But now I am here to tell you while FOOD & FASHION are my loves, you will see all that goes into my “dressed to dish” lifestyle – healthy obsessions included! After all, there’s nothing like a quick trip to the gym to pep up my “dressed to dish” attitude. Confidence is key πŸ™‚

Besides, my healthy balance allows me to enjoy life to the fullest! A few cocktails along the way won’t hurt either!
