dern taang doi sà-wàt-dì-pâap

That's Bon voyage in Thai. Quite appropriate, as I'm sitting at the RDU airport, waiting for my friend, Digyna, so we can head to Bangkok! I am too excited and am about to break out my lonely planet Thailand guide to get to learning about our awesome possum destination. Our basic itinerary is Bangkok (3 days), Northern Thailand including Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai (7 days), and the beaches at and near Koh Samui (4 days). I'll do my best to keep this updated, but, honestly, I might wait until I get back and try the whole "unplugged" thing.

Not an exciting pic below, but I'm trying to figure out this blogger app and it's functions.

Next stop... Bangkok.

The J. Crew Bubble Necklace Alternative

The J. Crew Bubble Necklace has exploded in the last several months.  Everywhere you look, everyone has one!  I, however, cannot justify spending $150 on a necklace (much less on anything else).  I couldn't be happier that I found an alternative that looks almost exactly the same on ebay.  It got here from China today!  Can you tell the difference?

J. Crew Bubble Necklace - $150
Alternative from Ebay - $11.99, free shipping (similar)

I know you can tell the difference in the price! :)
