The history of Ephesus, Turkey

Ephesus 22

Hello Travelers,

Happy New Year…!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful 2016 and have an even better 2017. I had a great year with a lot of fun travel adventures, brought a new house, got a promotion 🙂 and I hope the good luck continues onto the new year. I visited Turkey last December and Ephesus was my first stop. The city is about an hour’s drive from Izmir (you can fly from Istanbul to the Izmir airport). We stayed in Selçuk city which is near the ruins and has a number of hotels. Though it was really cold this time of the year in Turkey, the advantage of a visit now was that the sites were not as crowded and I could capture some beautiful shots of the sites. Continue reading

Gifts From Thoughtfully

Thoughtfully 9

Hello Wonderful People,

How have you been? Can’t believe we are already nearing the end of the year. It feels like it just started, doesn’t it? Well I love the holidays. The sound of jingles playing everywhere, the smell of hot chocolate, cute cookies, everyone wearing more reds and sparkles, it just feels like everyone is so happy. However, the holidays bring along the stress of looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones. If you’re like me you make multiple trips to the mall and either return empty handed or with stuff for yourself that you never intended to buy ;).

“A truly thoughtful gift is a story – a curated adventure perfect for each special individual in your life.”

Tips on Styling Florals for Winter

Floral Skirt 2

Hello Loves,

It’s been a white since I’ve written a blog post. I’ve been quite busy lately cause of all my pre-holiday shopping and preparing for my next trip ;). Today I wanted to post about styling Florals for winter. Luckily, I live in Northern California where the weather is cold, but not biting cold like the east coast. Which still allows me to go around with light stockings and a light jacket in winter and be fine. If I was styling this outfit for the east coast weather , I would add some warm tights, leg warmers, boots and a chic coat on top of this. Continue reading

It’s been a while since I got the time to write a travel post. So here it is – my review on Mike’s Bike Tours in Amsterdam.
