Today's post varies a little from the usual and this time round I'll be sharing with you a beauty place that I've been visiting for the past months before coming to the UK! Above picture was during a tea party session specially prepared by the lovely team from YuAcademie Salon & Aki Hair Studio for some of us in which I was granted the opportunity to attend! I was then given the best treatment session from getting my hair neatly fixed, nails painted to filling us with some good sweet tooth(s)! YuAcademie Salon is run by a Japanese beauty enthusiast which offers services such as manicure, pedicure & eyelash extensions!
Facebook page: Yu Academie Salon
Location: Verveshop Mont Kiara, Level 6, Unit 6-18, No.8, Jalan Kiara 5, Mont Kiara
With the founder(s) - Yuki-San, Masa-San, myself, Aki-San
Below are several gel nail manicure and pedicure designs that I've done throughout the past months while visiting them! I can't stress how much I always step out of their salon feeling extremely satisfied with the service that was offered by the team over @ YuAcadamie & of course when you have nails that are done to perfection, that adds up to the level of satisfaction!! Yuki & Miko are the two beauticians who did my nails, ask for them if you really love my nail designs! One thing for sure, their gel nails are extremely long lasting in comparison to the other manicure salon that I've visited! (#truth) Each gel nails that I had, lasted me for a good 1 month or more! Hence, it's definitely worth investing a little to get yourself pretty nails that lasts! (Most important aspect, no?)
And yes, I LOVE EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL GEL NAIL DESIGNS THAT I HAD BY THEM!!! First design was chosen by them and the subsequent ones are all handpicked and matched by yours truly!
Miko-San's nail extensions!! How cool is that!
Their prices are relatively higher because of the Japanese products that they incorporate with to achieve your pretty nails! Butttttt... they also lowered some of the prices to target the local customers so good news for y'all! So, go and check them out!
Aside from the manicure services that they provide, they offer eyelash extensions service as well! I've always wanted to get eyelash extensions done & I had the opportunity to get mine done over @ YuAcademie Salon! I had my first ever eyelash extensions experience there and I've to say I'm so hooked in getting them now! (I wish they were permanent, really) Make up routine is made easier when you have eyelash extensions on! If you're ever wondering whether it hurts, it's definitely a 0/10! It took about an hour plus to get them done and trust me, it's definitely worth spending to pamper yourself with lush lashes! Take good care of your lashes and it will last around 3 weeks to 1 month!
Please go and pay this place a visit, you'll never regret!
*Excuse my choice of selfie(s)! Lashes are most visible here & also I lost all of my previous pictures again! :x
During my last trip to Bangkok, I had the opportunity to collaborate with yet another newly furnished hotel in town - Hotel Once Bangkok!! If you're looking for a hotel to just chill and relax, away from the hustle and bustle city, I'd definitely recommend this place! Good news is that, it's only about 5 mins walk away from the famous night market - Asiatique! The moment you arrive, the lush greeneries will greet you at the entrance, bell boys will provide you with top notch services as you step foot into the hotel (worry not bout your big ass luggages) as you wait to check in to your humble home for the next few days!
As I've mentioned earlier, I have a soft spot for pretty hotels and I've to say this hotel was by far one of the prettiest hotels I've ever stayed at yet!!!! From the minimalist concept which I love so much about to the all white and marble theme embedded into it! It's interior & exterior is absolutely well done to perfection and safe to say, it will definitely meet your expectation! Despite it being a hotel review, I can't stress enough about the beauty and set up of this hotel and I have to admit this hotel really has so much to shout about! (Especially their jaw dropping room)!!

I was literally squealing in excitement as I was approaching my hotel room ushered by one of the staffs there! I stayed at the Executive Jacuzzi room that is sumptuously lit, really! "It is a hip double-floor loft stylish decorated with premium custom-designed furniture; elegant lightings that will enchant its visitors; luscious bubble bath in the jacuzzi tub neatly fixed up in the bathroom; along with all first-rate amenities!"
After a whole lot of shopping/sightseeing around the city of Bangkok, Hotel Once Bangkok is definitely the perfect place to relax and conceal away from the endless bustling of the city! The jacuzzi tub was just what I needed to end the day right. Truly felt like I had the best princess treatment during my 2 nights stay there!

Outfit of the day! feat my absolutely comfy bed x
Below are pictures around the lobby area!
If you're wondering what to expect from where you'll be dining at this hotel, below are a few pictures for you to have a glimpse on! Its dining area is known as Top Knot where they are open for breakfast and also for dinner! Take the flight of stairs and there you get to have your meal/cocktail night out with an enticing city view of Bangkok! Enter the glass-like dining area and there's a wall filled with all kinds of frames which is a picture worthy spot!

If you have a chance, take a lift up to second floor! There you have all things vintage that are pretty interesting to browse at!
The outdoor swimming pool! Was really hoping I could take a dip when I was there but time did not permit! Thank goodness for the jacuzzi in the room, it was more than enough for me!!
For those who are wondering what's the easiest way to get back to Siam area etc, you can go over to Ramada Plaza (5 mins walking distance from Hotel Once) & hop on a free boat service courtesy of Hotel Once where they will drop you at the nearest train station which is absolutely convenient! So worry not, if you think the distance may be a little inconvenient! It isn't really!
