I took this photo in Queensland, Hervey Bay. I’m escaping the winter in Scandinavia and before taking the picture I had enjoyed walking along the beach for kilometres… Australia is just the right place to be at “winter”!
Nice shot, getting cold in the Northern Hemisphere now!

Touted as one of the most beautiful beaches in Asia (if not, the world), my first ever visit to this beach paradise is nothing short of wonderful.
The powdery white sand, clear blue waters and the fantastic sunny weather was as welcoming as the warmth of the people living there.
Swimming was only secondary to the plethora of things that I did, which included islang hopping, snorkeling, boating and just lounging around, enjoying the beauty of nature.
Here is a photo of the blue seas and the complementary white sand, inviting you to come over and visit the place, too!
Nice shots, sure looks beautiful!

This past summer I spent a really hot afternoon wandering the Fullerton Arboretum (in Southern California). The pathways were dusty, the air stale and sweltering, I was sweltering (and probably stale as well). I began questioning my sanity, counting down to sun stroke, until the path led to paradise… a spectacular, never-prettier, arbor. I plopped down on the bench, super glad for the shade and solitude. It took awhile before I ventured back into the sun. ~SueBee
Nice shot, too bad you had to suffer to get there! )

Perhaps the most well-known attraction is none other than the monstrous Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower). Standing a whopping 1,535 feet in the air, the Willis Tower is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and the third largest building in the entire world, according to the Willis Tower website.
If you’re not afraid of heights, venture up to the top floor of the Willis Tower to get a jaw-dropping view of Chicago’s beautiful skyline. After the 60-second ear-popping elevator ride to the 103rd floor, you are at the top of the tower, often referred to as “the Ledge,” where you can see up to 50 miles away on a clear day in four different states, according to the Willis Tower website. The site also reports that the Ledge sees about 1.3 million visitors each year since its opening in 1974.
Recently, the Willis Tower has offered visitors an amazing new opportunity. Remember the scene in the popular 80′s movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off when Ferris and his friends went to the top of the then Sears Tower, and they all put their foreheads on the glass to see the action of the city below them? Well now, visitors can have a similar experience with the brand new Skydeck.
The Skydeck is four different glass boxes that extend 4.3 feet outside of the building, each giving you a different view of the city, according to the Willis Tower website. Step into the box, look down and below your feet, you’ll see the bustling city of Chicago with nothing holding you up except that glass box. But don’t worry, the box is completely safe as it is easily retractable to be taken inside for any maintenance it might need.
The idea of stepping outside one of the tallest buildings in the world might sound a little scary, but you can get an idea of what it’s really like from The Skydeck Experience Video. This an attraction that every visitor must take advantage of while visiting Chicago. What are you waiting for? Take a chance and go out on the Ledge!
Fantastic shot, that’s a loooooong way down!

Good afternoon to you! Wow, I’m about to confess that I’m still in my PJs despite how AMAZING the weather looks outside; (womp). Kind of kicking myself, a little bit, for being so laid back today, especially when I think about how this weather is sooo short lived as fall makes its way in.
Speaking of, there have been some changes around here! Besides me chopping my hair & purchasing some new items for the upcoming season, (yes, 3 fresh booties in & the first week of September is barely over…), I’ve decided to give the blog some love after its first year of existence by buying a custom domain & upgrading the layout!!
I like it so far; feels fresh & clean.
Oh lawd, all these changes. So appropriate for fall time. Am I right?
Nice shot, autumn can be so beautiful, even in the big city!

I was in Positano, Italy at the black sand beach back in March. It was a weekend trip while on Spring Break while studying abroad in Spring semester.

One of the reasons why I travelled to the Philippines last month was to visit my grandmother whom I had not seen for six months. This is a photo of our feet I took while trying to program my camera. I have always wondered which side of the family I inherited my feet from as my toenails on both feet are so unalike in terms of size, shape and how the nails grow. Looking at this picture however, it is very obvious that she has prettier toenails than I have. This makes me conclude that I might have inherited my feet from the other side of the family. Missing you already grandma!:)
Maybe it’s just the difference in lifestyle?
