Here’s what downtown Honolulu looks like. It was fun strolling around the center and to admire the colonial style buildings. The weather was overcast but warm, nevertheless. Gray is gray anywhere. But the tropics sometimes need that too. You get a break from all the bright sunlight. I enjoyed wearing my hair on the top of my head in a high bun. The sparkle adorned tee gave me the little glam boost I wanted.
I took this vacay to really meditate on finding more peace in my life. I am inviting the spirit of zen into my life. I am searching for ways to be more poised and focused. I tend to get wired up in the hustle and bustle of everyday doings. So my challenge is to remind myself of my core, a strong calm place where I can always go for re-centering.
I or anyone doesn’t need to doubt their value. I do things in life to the best of my capacity. I can remind myself that my life has value. Just as we all have value. This is a steady block to build on. Feeling better inside goes hand in hand for me with fashion. The first glows from the inside, the second gives the sweet, added touch.
Here is what Mont Royal in Montreal looks like. The hill gives you the best view point over the city. Fall colors are in full bloom right now. North America really radiates at this season. There are so many fun activities to partake. I’ve enjoyed long walks in my Central Park. I’ll stroll energetically for an hour or two, then go journal and fashion mag read at my regular Starbucks. They often play jazzy tunes so that’s perfect as I jot down on the pages of my Vogue. I love the concept of writing over pretty, trendy images. My thoughts and fashion merges into the greater scheme.
I practice being happy for no reason as is the title of my favorite book. Purchasing that little wisdom packed, second-hand book two years ago upstate New York has ended up really impacting my life. Inviting positivity into my life is simple yet demands a more or less conscious of an effort. When I feel that my mood could get gloomier, I pull out my book and spend some time reflecting and meditating. Being happy starts where you are – things then follow that confirm the sentiment, but nothing or no one will make you happy if you yourself don’t pull it out from within. People and things can help you do that so just ask… I’m here, too.

My city pumps up, spurs and boosts – enticing the glam girl out.
Montreal treats you to artsy outings. Chinatown strolls abouts.
You climb up the Mount Royal park… and the buzz is yours to admire.
Montreal threw some sweet encounters on my way. Fellow modern art museum visitors. There we were, chatting for a time and two.
Sweets and I munched on nachos and lingered upon deep red wine.
Louis Vuitton… just like back in sweet home Paris!
Wandering the metropolises. Nowhere and everywhere to go.
Yummy bubble tea – and other exotic delicacies.
This is my early summer.
