Rochelle Rae’s Asian Holiday (Part 10)!

Posted on January 14, 2014 by Rochelle Rae

We decided to make the long drive to Udawalawe National Park, which lies on the boundary of the Sabaragamuwa and Uva Provinces. Seriously, you would not believe the traffic here through the small villages. So many buses, cars, trucks, motorcycles, tuk tuks and an amazingly large number of pedestrians on the crazy tiny roads winding [...]

Today Thomas and I got up early and headed out on the motor bike to Katu Waterfalls to meet a group of friends to go zip lining, well one wrong turn and we missed our time slot, so no zip line for us. Kind of disappointing, it has 28 different platforms and is supposed to [...]

Yesterday was great, what a day of relaxation, after spending some time at the beach and getting a bite to eat, we headed out to get a facial and a mani/pedi at the mall, yes at the mall. There were about 20 – 25 beds all lined up together in a huge open room with [...]

My Christmas day post is a little late. I told you in my first post that I didn’t want you to think I was a scrooge because I wasn’t doing Christmas this year, that my family had actually rescheduled our celebration for mid-January. Well, I guess that wasn’t entirely true. Thomas and I did celebrate [...]

Today I was too lazy to even give a braid or a ponytail a try, so I’m giving a shout out to the ATX here in Thailand. Also, back to my old standby the beach bronze eyeshadow, it is easy and it goes with everything. I did switch to Pixie Lucky Lips Lipgloss, it is [...]

Well today I decided to try a few of the popular style trends before heading out to explore Bangkok. First, the oh so loved look of the season, the braid. I thought a hot, busy day would be the perfect time to give this one a shot. We all know the makeup will last but [...]

I love Christmas and my family always celebrates in a big way, the tree, the stockings, dragging Dad out of bed bright and early so we can open presents (He wouldn’t want to miss one second). We’ve never missed a Christmas morning together in my entire life and we still don’t, well sort of. As [...]
