Everything in Istanbul is just so beautiful. On our third day there we, of course, started our morning at an adorable café. I think cafes are always my favorite when traveling abroad. In a city like Houston, we just don’t have the luxury of great outdoor cafes. Between the humidity and the fast paced lifestyle, it’s so hard to just sit and enjoy life and all its beauty. After our coffee we began our fabulous rainbow stair descent towards Istanbul’s Modern Art Museum where we wandered for a while before heading to the Spice Bazaar.
Nice shot, sounds like a great trip! :)

Yaros Kalesi/day at the Black Sea
We took the day to relax on a ferryboat tour of the Bosphorus. An hour and a half up the strait, an hour and a half back down. In between the boat rides, I walked with students up a mountain to see the Yoros Castle (Yoros Kalesi). It was a trek, no doubt – sweaty and hot, no clouds to block the sun – and when we saw closed doors at the peak, I worried they would be disappointed. Almost ready to head back down, to relax with nargile by the water, I tried banging on the door a few times. A man opened it furtively. I begged him, in broken but desperate Turkish, to let the students in two explore. “Just two minutes!”
“In two minutes, I will lock this door and go to lunch. Two minutes!”
The students rushed past the door, ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the thin strips of land that give shape to the Black Sea. Hundreds of ships, tiny like ants, waited their turn to pass into the Dardanelles. After a few minutes of jumping around and snapping group photos, we hustled out of the castle area, but continued to wander. Rufus, a stray dog, guided us down the mountain.
Perseverance, y’all – it pays off.
Nice shot! :)

You know that the perfect accessories can totally change an outfit . It’s a silent, exciting night , you go out with friends or a date and want something simple but chic , choose a jumpsuit if you want to have an easy choice . Put a belt to make it classier and now it’s time to play : you have unlimited choices. Choose to be bold, shy, colorful, you can be whatever you want with the adequate “toys” .
The hard part was to choose between pink tones or green ones to sparkle the night and I went with greenish :
Now go out and have fun .
( Jumpsuit – Forever 21 , Necklace – H&M ) Choose a white color for your nails, I love it .
( Bag – Blanco, Ring – Pimkie , Neon Green sparkle bracelet – Forever 21 , middle bracelet – Bijou Bridgitte)
Looking fantastic! :)

Have a wonderful day! Peace.
Good shot! :)
With the entire afternoon left, and endless possibilities in NYC, we headed to the Empire State Building. Amazed at the fact that there was no line to get to the top, this was our second PEAK of the day. I know it’s cheating to have two Peaks, but walking through the building and surpassing where a line-up (of up to 2 hours) normally is, well, that’s just lucky. At the top of the Conservatory – you can see the WHOLE of NYC. All the movies come to mind that were filmed up there – none of which I can remember now – but WOW. That view. Peak, peak, peak of a lifetime.
Nice shots and what a view! :)

Today’s fallout shelter visit takes us to lovely Los Angeles of 1951, 10333 Santa Monica Blvd specifically. This is the vivacious Mary Lou Miner sitting atop a domed, cinderblock shelter. Those cat-eyed sunglasses in her hand are great. I would wear this entire outfit today, but likely with different underthings.
The original caption for this image notes that the lass is “sunning herself” but it looks more like she’s balancing pretty precariously to me.
It’s a beautiful summer day today, so why don’t you find yourself a shelter on which to sun yourself.
Strange, but she sure looks good! :)
