Wonders of the World 

We cannot start talking about all the natural wonders of the world without a shout out to WONDER WOMAN!  I mean; c’mon….what girl did not want to embody the image of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman?   So having said that, I don’t know very much about the new movie (not starring Lynda Carter) but I’m willing to go see it with my sis.  Because WW gets things done.

It’s never too late to start a mantra!

There must always be something to celebrate – how about just living?

This is an older photo from my scuba days in Jamaica.  I wore stripes so that the angel fish would think I was one of them.  But they knew I was no Angel.  Clownfish maybe?

Monument Valley, Arizona must be one of the most natural spiritual settings on earth.  I took this photo on one of our glamping trips.  It’s also the setting for many John Wayne old spaghetti Westerns.

These are somewhat thought out random posts.  Because like you, my mood always changes!  Welcome to the week.

Monday Mood Board #5

For the love of hats & personal style (and things I like)

Variety from Lesley’s Girls Vintage Lifestyle

Sole Society Straw Panama Hat from summer box of STYLE

pajama dressing for daytime – zoe report.

I don’t know who makes these but they look like an interesting conversation pair of slightly uncomfortable shoes.

And finally, the woman who set so many trends that are still HOT

Nicknamed ‘Coco’ after a brief spell as a cabaret dancer, Coco Chanel was inspired by the bourgeois class of Paris to start creating hats. … Coco Chanel became a licensed modiste in 1910 and opened her first millinery boutique ‘Chanel Modes’ at 21 rue Cambon. 

Oh; something else you should know

 There’s plenty more to follow

QUAINT – WINSOME – WILD

I always thought it would be great fun and somewhat adventurous to live on a houseboatafter knowing someone who did.  Then I decided it might be even better to live on a tugboat in the forest across from a lake.  Something like this would do.

Driving Above Christina Lake, British Columbia

Old fashioned fun

We like to keep on truckin

child size vanilla

Really good borscht at The Borscht Bowl in Grand Forks, B.C.

Really good Thai at Benja in Keremeos, B.C.  Good local fruit too.

 

 

Yes, we saw a big black bear close to the road.  Too close for comfort actually.

Then a curious moose we call a cow

Dogs just want to have FUN. And they know how to keep COOL on a HOT day.

Scent of a Woman:

NEW Perfume Museum in Paris

As if Paris isn’t magical enough….

If Willy Wonka made perfume instead of chocolates, his factory would look just like the Grand Musée du Parfum, the new museum of perfume in Paris. Because of course there’s a perfume museum in Paris…and it’s absolutely dreamy. You will step into an unforgettable experience of sense, emotion, pleasure, and understanding.

Located in a stunning Parisian mansion previously owned by Christian Lacroix, the scent-driven exhibits encourage visitors to sniff their way through a far more fragrant culture and history lesson than you probably would have ever imagined—did you know Cleopatra and Louis XIV used scent to woo their lovers?  Now you do.

ITHAA UNDERSEA RESTAURANT AT CONRAD MALDIVES RANGALI ISLAND: MALDIVES

Just in case you need yet another reason to add the Maldives to your list of swoon-worthy vacation destinations, check out this totally unique dining experience. Guests are taken 16 feet below the ocean’s surface to a glass-domed restaurant where they sample fresh Maldivian-Western fusion dishes—all while enjoying panoramic views of marine life. Just don’t look in Flounder’s eye before you take a bite.  And hope the ceiling doesn’t cave in!

Chic Peek – Street Style

I like what she’s wearing.  Classic white blouse with a dash of glitter & panache.  Very pulled together in an elegant, effortless (so it appears) way.  She looks interesting. And those shoes!
