“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street,
fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ~ Coco Chanel
Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o’er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Looking for someplace just a little different for diner? Might I suggest the Rock restaurant in Zanziba…. Mother nature certainly provided a stunning place for this restaurant to nestle. Rock Restaurant rises on a rock not far from the shore of the beautiful Michanwi Pingwe beach. At low tide, one can simply walk up to the restaurant. But at high tide, the Rock becomes surrounded by amazing turquoise waters. The restaurant will send a long boat to transport you ashore. It serves up to 14 tables, all facing a wonderful terrace on the Ocean so you need to book early. Read more
Bora Bora Island is located approximately 150 miles leeward northwest of Tahiti and is home to about 8,000 inhabitants. Bora Bora was once the gateway of arrivals for flying boats from New Zealand and clipper boats from Australia, but French Polynesian travel changed when Tahiti opened the international airport in 1961. Vaitape is the main settlement on the western side of the island opposite the main channel into the lagoon. Read more
There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;
for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;
and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
“No thought, no action, no movement, total stillness:
only thus can one manifest the true nature and law
of things from within and unconsciously, and at last
become one with heaven and earth.”
The hotel describes itself as “The colourful sunset of Santorini, the black volcanic rocks, the dark blue of the Aegean sea, the greys and whites of the Cycladic architectures spread along the rim of the Caldera are all reflected in the name Chromata, meaning ‘colours’ in Greek language. In this small hotel, built on the Cliffside of the Caldera, every room has its own bright colour theme and possesses unique architecture features. Most rooms are built into the rocks and are decorated in style that smartly mingles the baroque with the freshness of summer. The infinity pool is the hotel’s hotspot, with its transparent deck on top, where sun lovers gather around during daytime and exquisite dinners are served after sunset”. Read more
Pale were your looks; and the rose in your tresses
Paler of hue than the dreams we have lost;
Who, then I said, is it sees or who guesses,
Here in the hall, that I dance with a ghost?
Gone! And the dance and the music are ended.
Gone! And the rapture dies out of the skies.
And, on my arm, in her elegance splendid,
The woman of fashion smiles up in my eyes.
Had I forgotten? and did you remember?
You, who are dead, whom I cannot forget;
You, for whose sake all my heart is an ember
Covered with ashes of dreams and regret.
Every time you wake up and ask yourself,
What good things am I going to do today?,
Remember that when the sun goes down at sunset,
it will take a part of your life with it.
