Metropole Bangkok

In collaboration with Metropole Bangkok
(The Crest Collection by the Ascott Limited)




Sawadee ka! I'm finally back with another hotel review you wouldn't wanna miss! ;)

Located in the most hipster district in Bangkok, Thonglor, you'll find this colonial architecture inspired building which stands out from the other modern-looking buildings. And it's none other than Metropole Bangkok, which is one of the serviced apartments under The Crest Collection by the Ascott Limited.

If you know me, you'd know how much I admire beautiful interior designs. No matter vintage or modern, I like them both equally. Which is exactly why this place was made for me - Metropole Bangkok offers a unique juxtaposition between contemporary and classic! I was totally blown away by the gorgeous interior design once I stepped into the lobby after spending 10 minutes taking pictures of the building outside! Greeted with the sight of walls full of photo frames, quilted leather couches and antique trunks - I was screaming internally while holding back the urge to drop everything to go photograph the interiors because I had to check in first.

Got the room keys and went up excitedly because I had high expectations after seeing just the lobby area! I was offered the Studio room, which was perfect for me and my best travel buddy/photographer, my boyfriend. The room wasn't big but boy, it was beautiful. The room was so cozy and comfortable, which made us feel so homey. Think king-sized bed, big curtains and yellow lighting! I just love love love their concept so much. As it's a serviced apartment, the room was fully equipped with a mini kitchen and washing machine. The boyfriend and I totally made full use of the kitchen because we love Thailand's 7 Eleven sausages and packed fried rice!

Priced at RM361 (last checked on booking.com), it's a pretty damn good deal considering it's basically a home away from home. I highly recommend this place for your stay in Bangkok, if you want luxury at an affordable price! You'll enjoy your stay as much as I did, trust me.


Now it's time for the pictures to do the talking. Firstly here are some visuals of the building-











Onto the interiors-
(Super gorgeous right?!)

























This is PRIM Nurture Retreats, located on Metropole's ground floor! Every guest is entitled for a complimentary 15-minute spa service so yay to that! Even though it was short, it was honestly really therapeutic after a long day of exploring & shopping!


Our humble Studio room-

The Court Series














































My favourite kinda casual outfit includes my boyfriend's cap & flannel, some vintage Levi's and my current most loved shoes!

In addition to my Little Sneakers Collection I have my current favourite pair - Vans Veggie Tan (which my boyfriend gifted me during Christmas '16)! I have to admit I wasn't so fond of Vans before, I was more of a Converse gal until I was influenced by The Line Up and fell in love with the Old Skool design last year so I decided to get myself a pair. No regrets. Now I'm forever changed.. I love Vans. Their shoes are pocket-friendly, super comfortable and so versatile! Now let's talk about these veggie tans. They're the old skool design and it's in the most perfect shade of nude pink ever?! And leather?!!! I'm totally obsessed! It'll definitely remain my favourite until I lay my hands on some Common Projects.

Tropical Hues

In collaboration with Lord Timepieces


Have you ever felt the immense joy of digging something old and forgotten out from your closet?! I surely did. Here I am decked in this halter neck dress of the perfect shade of peachy pink which I purchased at least 6 years ago. Surprisingly it still fits me well despite putting on so much weight over the years. I believe the colour of this dress added the summer hue I was going for in this photo shoot so yay to that!

Anyways, good things are meant to be shared so I'd like to introduce you an affordable luxury watch brand, Lord Timepieces, that I will be featuring in this post today. There are so many new and growing watch brands these days (especially on Instagram!) but Lord Timepieces surely stand out due to their attractive price tag. Priced from only £55 (around RM300), the reasonable price definitely did not compromise on the quality of the watches. My preferred choice is the Classic Rose Gold watch because I personally love rose gold accessories over silver/gold. If you're not a fan of rose gold like me, they do have the classic watch in silver and gold as well, and they look equally pretty. However if you're not so fond of metallic colours, they do offer a range of colours to pick from so you can always opt for the safe colours like black, brown, pink or grey! I assure you the quality of the watches is way more worthy of the price you're paying for. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

I hope you enjoy these photos! More to come because I'm finally into taking pictures again. I have a few shoots planned out and I hope they turn out good! Will share soon x
