    10 Days in Phuket: Relaxation and Adventure

    With white-sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, palm trees, and a unique exotic vibe, Phuket, Thailand is a dream destination and a top choice when it comes to exploring Thailand’s beautiful islands. I can still feel the hot breeze in my hair and the taste of freshly juiced exotic fruits. After four nights spent in the busy Bangkok, we were so excited to escape the capital’s hustle-and-bustle and the fear caused by the first coronavirus cases, and spend ten well-deserved days on the beach with a book, a cocktail or a beer in our hands.

    How We Got Scammed in Bangkok

    Bangkok is full of surprises; this is the reason why so many people love it. But scams are some of them. I have written this article two months after our visit to Thailand and I have realized how many things I would have done differently. Traveling is not always pretty, but every experience teaches you new lessons. No matter how well-prepared we were before visiting the capital of Thailand, yes, we got scammed. After our experience, I suggest you take some time before planning a trip to Thailand and read carefully plenty of blog posts and watch vlogs with REAL experiences not only presentations of the most popular attractions. I…

    Bangkok – Expectations vs. Reality

    Hello, my lovely petites! It took me a while to find the words to describe my petite traveler adventures in Thailand, so this is the first article of a series because there is a lot to recount. When you say Bangkok, you probably picture glorious skyscrapers, green parks, fascinating temples, friendly people and the world’s best food. At least, this is what I thought about it. I’ll be honest: Bangkok is nothing like I’ve imagined. Thailand was on our travel list for a long, long time. Actually, when we started freelancing in the summer of 2019, we were sure we wanted to move to Thailand for at least three months.…

    Our 3 Months Adventure In Tenerife

    Hola my Petites! Since our adventure in Tenerife has ended for the moment, I wanted to share with you this fabulous experience. At the beginning of 2019, we (me and Alex) didn’t know how many things were about to happen and change our lives. And here we are, at the end of the year and of a decade, grateful for one of the most fascinating experiences of our lives – our 2.5 months adventure in Tenerife. How it all started? With a failed attempt to go to Thailand for more than 15 days (we didn’t give up this idea, either). Our desire was to make the most of our new…

    Petite and not Feeling Like A Woman? What Do You See When You Look in the Mirror?

    Have you ever felt not woman enough as a petite, but rather a ‘forever girl’? I don’t mean only physically. Relax, most petite women feel this way, and I was one of them – I must admit, I didn’t know how to woman. Being petite leads, in most of the cases, to looking much younger but remaining a girl for the rest of your life is not an option. As a petite, my parents always treated me like a child; this is what all parents do in general, I guess. As a result, I didn’t know when the transition from mommy’s girl to a grownup woman has been done. At…

    15+ Things You Don’t Know About Me

    Hello my petites! As I am new to many of you, I feel like sharing some things (funny or not) you surely don’t know about yours truly but will probably help you know me better. I have been wearing glasses since I was 4 years old. You do the math. I love reading.  I can’t imagine life without books. I don’t like the idea of reading e-books (L.E. December 2019 – I’ve discovered Kindle, I don’t know how I’ve lived without it so far). I love to feel the paper and, call me weird, the smell of books. The best relaxation for me is reading on a sunny beach. When…

    Personality Traits of Petite Women

    Hello, my petites. First of all, let me tell you that I’m not a psychologist, a therapist or anything in between, but I love reading a lot about the human behavior and I like “reading” people. I don’t know if there really is something special about petite women, but I have many small-sized girlfriends and all of them share some common personality traits. One of them is their power. Petite women are powerful. Their big personality compensates their short stature. In the past, being tall has been associated with power, intelligence, and strengths, but believing that being tall gives you more power or energy is just an illusion. I have…

    Long Hair When You Are Petite – yay or nay?

    Wondering if long hair is suitable for you as a petite? In today’s article, I want to cover an interesting subject that has been on my mind for a very, very long time – having long hair when you are petite. When I was a child and even a teenager, my mother always told me that I look better with short hair because it makes me look taller and this is how most of my life I had short to very short hairstyles. But, at the age of 18, I have decided to let my hair grow, and I have never cut it short since then, even though, I must…

    What I Struggle With as a Petite (And So Do You)

    And when I say struggle with, I don’t mean reaching things from the top shelves, or being called “cute” all the time – this is actually nice. I am talking about more serious aspects of a petite’s life. STORY TIME When I was 22 years old I accepted a job as a trainer for an oil and gas company in my hometown where most of the trainees (all of them actually) were 25+ years old (some of them were really my mother’s age). Well, nothing special so far. I was so excited by this job as it was my first one of this kind; until then I had been working…
