Happy March!

I want to wish everyone a beautiful new month of March... As I was looking at how long it's been since I wrote anything, I was quite shocked at how much time had passed.

As I sit here and reflect on all the things that have happened since then, I am happy to be back in this space and share with everyone ideas, photos and happenings that I find all around. Today's image is very symbolic for me, as I have started a new life not long ago and new opportunities are presenting to me.

Have a lovely month!

Travel Clicks

I love traveling but hate today's schedule is a little foul because I've been awake since 4 am, a pretty difficult time for someone who loves to sleep as much as I do... ha! Once again I'm on my way to Miami to see my friends and enjoy of some time off and relax a lot.

Here are a few links to start off the week:

This is an amazing article about the blogger who is pulling $8 Million a Year... Amazing!!!

I loved reading this about Avoiding Hidden Hotel Fees to save myself a little headache on this trip... ha!

Wherever you go, you should always dress the part you're trying to play... your Personal Brand!

With fall fast approaching, I'm definitely planning on getting up to date with the Season's Lipstick Color.

Finally, here's the best of NYFW!

Have a lovely day!

Photography Monday

This week will be photo crazy for me, as I will be visiting a few places for the purpose of photographing and will be working on a few photos for this blog. It's been a while since I've taken good photos and feel I'm a bit rusty, but hope will get into it very easily! 

Here are a few links to start off the week!

I love this article from Free People about the last activities before the end of the summer. Even though some of us are not saying good bye to summer and other are welcoming it, these are some great ideas all the same!

Of course, no activity is complete without a great soundtrack and a summer inspired one is always a great idea. Do you have a favorite summer tune? Mine came out a bit late in the summer but still love it - Do you? by Spoon.

I found these really cute backgrounds for you electronics which for me are fantastic, because I love glamouring up my computer from time to time.

New York Fashion Week is in full swing and my favorite blog for checking out the styles in Ann Street Studio, along with this fabulous NYC photographer's Instagram account... check her out!

Finally, I want to invite you to take a look at Hotel Punta Islita over at my newest travel venture called Alluring Runaways... It is a beautiful eco-luxury hotel!

Have a lovely week!!!

Travel Ventures

As I was telling you yesterday, I started a new venture with some good friends in the travel industry, which will take me to explore and travel beautiful hotels all over the place... YAY!!! Our new company is called Alluring Runaways and we are lunching our first group of hotels today and we are super excited!!!

Also, today I'm visiting a beautiful boutique hotel with an old world charm that I will be bringing to you next week, but just in case I want to give you a quick pick of this beautiful gem called Hotel Grano de Oro, or the Golden Bean allusive to the coffee bean - Costa Rica's pride and joy.

Have a beautiful day!!!

Hello September!

I want to welcome this month with open arms and to celebrate it I'm coming back to blogging with renewed energy and ideas. I cannot think of a better month to start fresh as I turn 5 years of blogging and celebrate my birthday... Amazing!!!

Over the past couple of months tons of things have happened, from reinventing my business and designing a new corporate identity (see HERE) to starting a new venture with some great partners (see HERE), things have changed and moved faster than I realized... and believe they will continue that way!

I will traveling around pretty often, will come up with some decor ideas and ever a few DIY's, and will be writing much more as I have a few ideas about the written word swirling in my head. Next week I will let you know in greater detail what to expect and when as I'm fine tuning a few details. I'll see you tomorrow with anew article to tickle your sense of travel.

Have a beautiful day!

Reading Material

This week I was not able to get to my links post on Monday, and since I will be traveling and relating my travels next Monday I decided to get them out to you today. I wish everyone a lovely weekend, even though I'm looking forward to this trip, I'm dreading the very early morning flights I'll be taking.

We all go through periods of stress that get us stuck in one mindset that doesn't let us think clearly, for that reason I thing this article on How to Carry On is a great read for the day.

I don't know if I related to you my attempts at making a smudge stick that have not moved forward as I have not been successful at drying the herbs that I need, until I found this post about Drying Herbs that I'm sure will be quite helpful.

As much as I love to travel I tend to hate a lot of the airports I have visited for their very uncomfortable seating and bad lighting, this post about the Airport of the Future gives me wanderlust hope.

The changes in the weather make everyone's allergies flourish, so it's always nice to have some natural remedies to Fight Off those pesky allergens.

I love fruits and the combination of Strawberries and Honeydew sounds like the perfect ending for a hot summer lunch.

Finally, I will be posting on my Instagram feed over the next few days in an attempt to chronicle my trip... so, please stop by @efournierm or @ElieFournier on Twitter.

Have a lovely weekend!!!
