What To Do In Thailand!! Chiang Mai & Phuket Trip Review!

 James Bond Island

James Bond Island

Thailand was an amazing way to start 2018. My husband and I started the trip in Chiang Mai, and then traveled to Phuket, spending five days in each location.  I am sharing some suggested places I think you should visit. If you have any suggestions on where to go please share in the comments to help other out!


CHIANG MAI

Elephant Sanctuary- The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary was the most memorable experience while in Chiang Mai. No worries about inhumane treatment against the elephants here, the sanctuary works hard to facilitate the natural day to day routine for the elephants. You can chose an overnight stay, only a day, or half day experience.

The guides educate you on the history of the elephants, and allows you to feed, mud, and bathe with them.

They have nine locations located in Phuket & Thailand     http://bit.ly/2Eejw8h

Central Festival Mall- This mall is really new, built in 2014. This six floor mall has great shopping and great food. We went there three times, lol. They have a ice skating and a 4D movie theater.

4D Theater- Located inside of the Central Festival Mall, the 4D theater is somthing you should try out. They typically only feature one film to give you the 4D experience, even if you don't like the film chosen you will have fun with the chairs moving, wind, splashing of water, and temperature changes.

The Good View Restaurant- Loacted on the Ping River, this massive restaurant has great views and great atmosphere. Cheap prices and free wifi!! lol

The Night Market- This is a huge market with a lot of different vendors

Massages- WHERE can you get an amazing massage for $4.00 an hour in America? WHERE!? I will tell you just in case you even began to think about it!... NO WHERE! Thailand is known for their blissful massages. So I suggest that whenever you see a spa that you like, stop in and enjoy a

The Best Affordable Ocean View Villa In Phuket Thailand

$100 a night (1).png

I spent a week in paradise during my visit to Phuket, Thailand. Phuket is a beautiful place, and the villa made the experience here even better when we were not out exploring.  Take a look at the villa we stayed in to see the full review to help you decide if you will choose Sea Space Villas as your place to stay while in Phuket.


 

CONS

  • Communicating with Staff
  • Accessibility Getting Around

PROS

  • Ocean View
  • Pool
  • Complimentary Breakfast
  • WiFi
  • Air Conditioning
  • Friendly Staff

When it comes to the cons of the Sea Space Villa there aren't many but the two that stuck out was at first communicating with the staff. They are very friendly and do a great job making sure you have everything that you need, but trying to make requests can be quite difficult. 

Also when it comes to getting around to attractions and restaurants Uber does not exist here. You have to call a taxi and the staff does that for you. However, it's not cheap or convenient. You are better off renting a motorbike at the office on the property, there pricing is fair in comparison to what motorbike rental services charge in the city. 


PLACES YOU SHOULD VISIT!

These places are all close to the the villa and were my personal faves!

Nikitas Restaurant is a must! Great view, friendly staff and great prices. We went twice because of the food and view. 

Koh Bon Island Restaurant is a cute outdoors restaurant located on Koh Bon Island right off the shore of Rawai Beach. You will need to rent a boat to take you out there (1500 Baht). The boat boy will wait for you until you are ready to go, the latest they will stay on the island is until 5pm, the earliest 9am. The food is amazing!!! and you can ignore the myth of swimming after eating and enjoy the ocean and maybe even snorkel if you want.

Holiday Gift Guide with Burlington!!

Shopping at Burlington is great when it comes to checking off those last few gifts off of your list! 

I was excited to collaborate with Burlington this year to bring you this gift guide and to also do a quick turn-around giveaway (which is now closed.)  The fact that I was able to go into one store and shop for almost everyone on my list was amazing.

Poreless SkinCare Favorites for 2017

Obsession is not even the word to correctly describe my diligent journey to achieve poreless skin. For the past two months I've been into preventative anti-aging skin care, and also refinement of some areas that trouble me. I have tried everything from masks, chemical peels, botox, and sculptra to reach my goal.

If you want to know more about my botox procedure click the video to the right.

ANYWHO...LETS GET INTO THESE FAVORITES!

2. Scentbird Nourishing Sugar Scrub- USE CODE "AVI25" 25% OFF

This scrub is all about a gentle exfoliation, while moisturizing at the same time. I loved the smell and found that I always reached for this product in the shower to exfoliate after showering.

4. Tony Moly Sheet Masks- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fyl/

These masks are saturated heavily with concentrated essence to specifically target your skins needs! My go to mask is the moisturizing, Pore Care, Radiance, and Brightening masks. Lol, I know that seems like all of them but, Tony Moly offers so many different options to try out from acne, dry skin, and more.

6. iT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Translucent Setting Powder- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fyn/

I LOVE THIS POWDER!!!!! I had this powder just sitting in my makeup room for a month, and when I finally picked it up, I was mad that I didnt pick it up sooner!! This product is definitely a game changer for me in achieving that poreless look. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! Pick this up and use it before applying your foundation.

8. BH Cosmetics Waterproof Brow Pomade- http://go.magik.ly/ml/7od4/

I use the shade "Ebony". Definitely a dupe for ABH Dip Brow Pomade. SUPER AFFORDABLE, and a little goes a long way!
 

Have you tried out any of the products I mentioned? If so, how did you like them? 


1. Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8ha7/

This product is a gentle exfoliant that really gives the user control on the amount exfoliation they experience. A little goes a long way, just keep in mind that the more water you add, the exfoliation experience will be more gentle.
After rinsing my skin feels a tingling sensation, and really cool and refreshed.
This product helps with deep cleaning your pores, After removing your makeup, its really important to fully cleanse your face to keep your pores from becoming enlarged.

3. Scentbird Fragrance- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8ha7/

The convenience of being able to just quickly pop one of these in my bag has been surprisingly helpful. I know that this service is aimed to help you determine which scent you buy for a full size, but now I just want to keep trying a new scent. I really enjoyed the Calvin Klein scent this past month, very sexy scent.

5. m-61 Hydraboost Cream- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fym/

This product is literally magic in a tiny container. PRICEY!! But I promise its worth it. Your skin looks plumper and glowy after using it. I prefer applying the cream before bed if I know I have a big event the next day.

7. Covergirl Healthy Elixir Foundation- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fyo/

I use the shade "Soft Sable" This foundation gives great coverage. The foundation is breathable and has vitamins and SPF to help and protect your skin. I use this foundation every time I do my makeup check out my Instagram @AvielleAmor to see. Sometimes I do mix it, but it is always mixed with Healthy Elixir.
