I flew to Madrid, Spain to escape the hot weather of Texas. However, it was even hotter over there! (many sweat infused tissues and several oil blotting sheets discarded haha). I attended a birthday celebration there and we took what it seemed like a thousand photos and we pigged out, we danced the night away and because photography is one of my hidden passions--even though my photography skills are abysmal I think--Madrid is really full of photo opportunities...
They say Chicago is the windy city, but when I was there it wasn't windy at all. I recently visited Chicago and by recently-meaning like last week. I have never been here before and I've always aspired to visit. (Also, my co-worker Rebekah who lived there for 20 years encouraged me to). Plus, I didn't know there was a beach!
Last weekend, I flew to Seattle, Washington and had an amazing time with my cousins. I felt like I needed a short weekend to clear my mind, to de-stress and to relax. The weather is amazing! Oh that's also one of the reasons why I flew to Seattle--to escape the hot and humid and lethal weather of Texas. The temperature were in the 70s and at night it was even cooler.
Yes we do it for the thrill--traveling that is. Recently, I visited Lisbon, Portugal and I must say that I have enjoyed this wonderful city. A dream destination of mine ever since and I will be back and that's a must!
This book has been popular for awhile now. And yes, once you pop you can't stop. I haven't been reading books as much as I used to but I'm now just getting back to it again. Different emotions going on in the story and as much as I would love to share, i'd rather keep my mouth shut.
Song of the day:
GoldHOUSE- FeelGood (Pierce Fulton Remix)
One thing that my parents instilled in me and my siblings is the love of travel. Being born in Manila and growing up in Riyadh and living in the US made me realize that I am a wanderlust. Traveling for me is euphoric and sensory overload. The hustle and bustle of each cities that I visit. The intonation of the voices of people excites me. There's something about the smell of the air that tells my gut feeling that I am somewhere but at the same time I am nowhere I'd rather be but in that place.
This Louis Vuitton campaign is beautiful. Plus, my favorite actress, Alicia Vikander is featured in this video. Her movies that I liked are Ex Machina, Anna Karenina and U.N.C.L.E. With all the up and coming actresses, she encompasses that relaxed and care free aura. Go watch her movies lol.
Song of the day: Ella Henderson-"Ghost" (Oliver Nelson Remix)
I am one of the people who likes foyers or entrance hall. To me, it shows a preview of what their place might look like. My foyer consist of a simple glass table from IKEA, however the things came from different places. I admit, I like candles and it's the easiest way to make a place "homely" or have that relaxing aura.
Hi there, one thing that I love in life is music. I think the music industry is a smorgasbord of delicious food that tickles all the five senses. I love music and I really did get a good use of the old generation Ipods. You know the white one with scroll wheel? Yes, I did have that. And I used it to death. However, my infatuation with music doesn't stop there. I research bands and songs to find new ones as well. How many songs do I have in my music library? I don't know, a couple thousands I think. But although I don't listen to all of 'em, I just like to have the vast library just in case I am feeling nostalgic and I could relate that specific song to that specific time period (yes, I still remember those things). Yes, I still buy cds, physical cds, So that's why if you noticed, the ending of my posts usually have a song recommendation from me. Basically, the songs are what I'm currently obsessing about that day or for a couple of days. So you can copy and paste the song and head over to Youtube. That's all.
Song of the day: The Struts-"Could have been me"
When I travel, I like to share the world through my eyes while capturing photos that will forever remain with me. I'm Leo by the way, U.S based wanderlust.
