I just finished the second season of The Good Wife, which is based upon the Elliot Spitzer scandal. I won’t say its the best show ever, but it’s highly entertaining and it got better with every show. I love having a … Continue reading →
Given how many children here are raised by domestic helpers, I thought this story: Love, Money and Other People’s Children by Mona Simpson in the New York Times was particularly appropriate to share. All of these Madonna-esque photos are nannies … Continue reading →

One can not underestimate the value of a tailored, cotton tee that you can dress up or down, but I don’t like paying a fortune for it, even if it is a wardrobe workhorse. Good-bye Splendid $80 tees. Hello $15 Everlane … Continue reading →

- Smithf741 commented on Reader's Query, Shower games: How well does the Bride-to-be know her Groom-to-be?

The capes and hats were to die for! (Sidenote: How perfect are the colors with my HKH logo!)
Tarlan’s mother was in town and she sewed all the capes and hot-glued all the ribbons onto the hats.
We did a little shower for Monique while in Thailand.
It was the traditional, hang up all the lingerie and make the bride guess who gave what.
But the exotic locale made it a little more fun!
I love how lush and green it is there… but you do have to accept that it also rains daily to make that possible.
It’s good to make sure at least one gal gives a white ensemble for this game…
We didn’t get around to playing until it was dark, so Lauren is nicely highlighting each outfit with her phone!
I think her trousseau is in good shape for the honeymoon… I hope she plays the paper bag game where she makes her new husband pick out a new outfit for each night…
A few weeks back, six of us girls hopped on a quick, 3 hour flight to Thailand to celebrate our friend Mo’s upcoming nuptials.
We were so lucky to get to hang out in such a beautiful place!
I just couldn’t get enough of the limestone pebble islands. It really was a lot like Halong Bay, only in Thailand.
All we really did the whole weekend was gab away and look at the changing vista.
The weekend was a little bit of a send-off, reunion as well as one of our dear friends who had moved back to the States was in town from North Carolina and three of the gals are moving back to the US in the next few months… so it was especially nice to have this time together.
One big, last hurrah! And lots of marriage advice for Miss Monique as well.
The resort we stayed at was affiliated with the floating cinema I wrote about a little while back and they had a cool, outdoor theatre set-up year round.
To get to the resort, you have to take a 30-min car ride from the airport to a marina and then a 45-min boat ride, but the boat trip is definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
We caught the start of rainy season so we got some crazy thunderstorms… but the weather changes so quickly so we also got a few really nice sunny hours. To avoid the rain, we traveled around the rainforest in golfcarts. All the little villas were spaced apart so we kind of felt like we had the resort to ourselves.
Above, a view back on the resort from the boat.
We had our own little lilly pond, complete with croaking frogs.
A lot of food we ate was grown on the premises and they even made their own rubber… pretty cool.
And here we are in our matching Old Navy pareos… the little favor gift for the weekend.
Next up: some pics of the actual wedding shower part of the weekend!
