sure, there are perks living in a tropical country where it’s hot and sunny all year round. but sometimes, just sometimes, you wish there was a distinctive seasonal changes so that you can wear your knitted sweaters, cozy scarves and cute little uggs. but sadly, that’s not likely to happen in thailand anytime soon.
but fyi, thailand do get really chilly around december to january. like really really chilly. at one point last year, the weather was down to below 20 celsius. i know that’s like the warm/perfect weather for many other countries but for thailand we all thought the world was literally coming to an end.
but who said you can’t play autumn in a tropical country? i’ve been on a lookout for a dark red slash burgundy lipstick for a while. something that isn’t too red or vampy.
when i saw the matte lipstick collection in colour ‘fabulous fig’ at a revlon counter i got it without a second thought. not only did i love how it looked on my lips, it was super affordable. i got mine on a sale for 104 baht to be very exact – which is like 3 dollars. cray, i know.
with the burgundy lipstick on, my heart was all set for autumn that will never come.
i still went ahead and put on my cozy little sweater that i got from korea a while back. but paired it with white shorts so people won’t think i’m crazy. and opted out for a pair of flats instead of uggs.
i love how this sweater can be worn two ways. both as a sweater and a cardigan. and it’s so soft and fluffyyyy.
oh, and i have a random question for everyone. i know that pumpkin spice latte is the drink of fall in many parts of the world (which i would love to try one day) but starbucks in thailand don’t carry that seasonal drink. but they recently came out with two not-so-creative drinks: dark caramel latte and french vanilla latte. which i’m pretty sure they just added the word ‘dark’ and ‘french’ to their caramel and vanilla lattes.
i wonder, what are the fall seasonal drinks in your local starbucks?
