Use less. Live more

Hi guys, I said I'm going to be more active on the blog but there is a reason why I have been quiet lately. I am in the process of organizing and decluttering things I own. Truthfully, I don't think I own a lot of stuffs in comparison to others. But I still want to declutter things I don't use or I barely use. In other words, just like what Marie Kondo stated from her book of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, "Get rid of things that do not spark joy". 

La Maison Lavande

One fact about me: I love flowers with all my heart. One of my childhood "dreams" was to open a flower shop. 
We recently visited a lavender field called "Maison Lavande" which is around 40 minutes drive from Montreal. Remember it was one of things I want to do for the summer season? Thanks to my  who is always willing to do things with me despite his busy schedule.

The field was not comparable to those magnificent lavender farms you would see in Provence but it was also a delightful place to visit. Funny how my boyfriend was expecting the place to smell like lavenders but unfortunately, it didn't. Maybe there was not enough lavenders around to have an aromatic scent on the field.

July (Summer) Beauty Favourites

Hello guys! How have you been? Again, I'm so sorry for the lack of post on my blog. For many reasons, I didn't have time to blog as much as I wanted to but hopefully August will be a better blogging month for me. I want to organize things for my blog before I start another semester in September.

The Best of Sintra: The mystical Quinta da Regaleira

Enchanting, mysterious and romantic are the words I immediately think when describing this place. If you're planning to visit Sintra someday, this is a must place to go. The gothic residence is beautiful itself but the gardens are what you will enjoy the most because there are lots of things to see. There are underground grottos, little towers to climb and a labyrinth of connecting passages that W and I explored. The former owners of this estate lived in such a magical place! This area is the perfect location to shoot a fairytale movie or even a "horror" movie as it also has a bit of eerie feel (lol).

The Magical Town of Sintra

The most memorable part of our Europe trip was our day trip to Sintra, Portugal. This town is so magical and I would really love to visit this place again in the future. It was just breathtakingly beautiful and a day was not enough to cover all the lovely places you can find in this town. Ideally, I think two days should be spent exploring Sintra. We were able to visit two castles ( Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle) and a gothic mansion (Quinta da Regaleira). I'm going to write separate posts to show the beauty of each places we visited in this little town.
