1. EVERYDAY KARMAKARMET
the newest branch of the Bangkok-based aromatic products brand Karmakamet.
Last weekend, on a sunny summery sunday , I strongly feel like travelling to some uptown places but it wasn’t just practical as I had to get back early (yeah, I knew it was monday on the next day.) Despite the severe sun heat, I decided to kick myself out of bed to explore some nice new cafes and restaurants in town. The first place and the one I could not miss is ‘Everyday Karmakarmet’. The new cafe run by the team behind the well-known, successful aromatic brand ‘Karmakarmet’ from Thailand, which distributes to many areas of the world. I am the one who has been fallen in love with the brand concept and aesthetic for so long and so I just had to check out what this amazing brand is doing next..
At your first step, the shop’s smell will just drag your nose. Next, the window display and visual merchandising are arranged imperfectly perfect like it was the local groceries store with a warm old-English-market atmosphere. Furthermore, the sound of the Beatles and Across the Universe Soundtracks capture the spirit of the 60s-70s inside your soul. Last, the cafe that serves from Tea to Tart just will not only complete your empty stomach, but hungry mind as well. You can feel the aesthetics of ‘love your everyday life’ in every details of this cafe, as their motto ‘I Love My Life’. Sometimes I think it is just the perfect place in which I’d love to nurture all the five perceptions of mine.
my all time inspiration and muse – Yoko Ono and John Lennon
Love their motto of living a good life – maybe wellness is the new black.
One of the quote that they put on many products,‘Work Hard Stay Humble’ , is my motto of all time that I want to accomplish the most.
‘RAW Uncommon’ , The casual canvas-leather bag for everyday lifestyle, is a product of my friend Ornpailin. Congratulations they just have a consignment in selling Raw Uncommon at Everyday Karmakarmet store. you can check out the products at the store or their FB page.
I’m quite into the blue and white tone this summer – Chambray, denim, cotton, linen..everything natural! In this pic I was wearing the blue and white chambray day dress from French Connection (fcuk) , Raw Uncommon paper bag, and Keds linen shoes. I love them so much 🙂
2. THINGS TO MAKE AND DO
the Bangkok branch of the Chiangmai-based home products brand.
If mention a place to find and shop wooden products and some other crafts at good quality, one could not deny that Things To Make And Do, The store containing lifestyle goods designed and produced in CNX, Thailand, is one of the best destination in town right now. They offer a shopping atmosphere in a container, contaning a range of wood craft products, from a set of pencils to home furnishings. If you have read their book (Things To Make And Do, by OOM Publication) you will find many of their products in this newly-opened Bangkok store. Located at Tree box project on Ratchapreuk Road, just opposite the Circle community mall, you can easily drive here and explore some nice ceramics and tableware for your pretty-up home. The store was in the container so it gives you a lofty ambience as well.
Still in the mood of blue and white : I was wearing a white crisp cotton poplin shirt from COS, a pale blue skirt from French Connection (FCUK) , and shoes from Keds again.
The structure of this chair is just interesting. It belongs to the Tree box cafe.
3. BUDDY BOY’S DINER

At the end of the day, If you wanted to find some unique place to dine in, Buddy Boy’s Diner is a good choice. Next to Tree box project, Buddy Boy’s Diner is hidden behind the 7/11 store. Decorated their restaurant like an American bus cafe, for example, putting a jukebox and Harley-Davidson collection inside, Buddy Boy’s Diner offers an authentic 50s American dinner atmosphere with various plates of juicy burgers, fries and steaks.
Try Cherry Coca-Cola, I’m so in love with it!
Buddy Boy Burger – a signature, very juicy one with cheese and bacon.
I was wearing the black&white color-blocking outfit that day, which really gets along well with the graphic black&white diamond tile.
It’s kinda fun when your dress is matched with the interior right?
