Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day everyone! Now more than ever keeping the planet and how we treat it top of mind is so important. Awareness is huge. Below is a picture of the gorgeous Koh Phi Phi islands in Thailand. Sadly while we were there, tourists and guides alike left garbage and trash on these once pristine beaches. They are now making efforts with signage and cleaning crews to tidy up the mess and stop people from littering. It’s a good reminder to be aware of how your daily habits affect the world around you.

Singapore!

My husband and I are currently on our Honeymoon – first stop, Singapore. This city is amazing, and conveniently, most everyone speaks English here so it’s super easy to communicate and get around.

The city is extremely clean and the architecture is stunning. There’s lots of shopping and good food, though it can be more on the expensive side. The heat and humidity is something we are getting used to still. Sometimes when I step outside from a lovely air conditioned shop I am shocked at how similar the temperature and humidity is to stepping into my hot yoga class back home.

We’re staying the the Marina Bay Sands on Bayfront in the central business district. The hotel is stunning. We’re on the 47th floor and the view is unreal. The buffet breakfast is delicious, and this morning we are going to check out the amazing infinity pool located at the top of the hotel. It’s huge and looks out over the cityscape. A pretty impressive view to say the least!

Loved the giant tree structures (they’re all lit up at night). Yesterday we went to the top and had lunch and a drink at one.

 

Food! Tiny dishes in Tel Aviv

Often at meals in Israel there are many small dishes that everyone at the table shares. Below is the plethora of small salads, dips, and hummus that was quickly whisked onto our table upon sitting down at a seaside fish restaurant at the old port of Jaffa.

Pacific Beach Sunset

And this is why I love San Diego, CA. This is the view from my patio on this beautiful winter evening.

Fuscia Chair

I love this chair! I came across it at this new coffee shop in Pacific Beach, such a great place to sit and have coffee while catching up with a friend.

Winter in Bobcaygeon, Ontario – Canada

Bobcaygeon is a small town in Ontario, north-east of Toronto. The region is called Kawartha Lakes and it is such a picturesque area. They have locks for the big boats that come through town in the summer and in the winter the population is much smaller without the huge influx of tourists that time of year. They often get cold and pretty snow-filled winters. Here are a few pictures I recently captured.

 

Bridge, downtown Bobcaygeon, winter Bigley's

On the far side of the bridge you can see the store Bigley’s. A very popular shoe and clothing store with good name brands that people travel all the way to Bobcaygeon just to shop at.

Coffee, Kawartha Coffee, Americano, specialty drinks

Once downtown Bobcaygeon I always like to stop by Kawartha Coffee. Delicious Americanos and specialty coffee can be found in this cozy coffee shop along the Main Street downtown Bobcaygeon.

The High Line in New York

High Line NYC city walk greenway revamped

The High Line

The High Line was a great experience for us in NYC. They’ve taken these old railway tracks and revamped them into a green walkway surrounded by tall grasses and beautiful foliage with wooden benches scattered along the walk. It was pretty busy when we were there, but still very enjoyable. The tracks are high (thus, The High Line) above street level and weave through some pretty cool buildings. The architecture around the walkway ranges from old and slightly industrial looking to brand new development. It’s a great place to go for a stroll in some greenery while still being in the big city. Here are some pictures of our walk.

Tea Pot Fountain The High Line

Beautiful Garden and Fountain along the High Line. I loved this mystical asian-inspired tea pot fountain nestled in amongst the tall grass with the sunbeams streaming through! Amazing.

Ok, so I’ll admit it, I’ve been watching DVF’s new reality tv show lately and I’m kinda addicted. So I was super excited when I saw this building while wandering along The High Line.
