That Paris Shoot


Paris, a main player in the fashion industry, is an hour’s train ride from Brussels. So what better place is there to have a fashion shoot; a Parisian photo shoot at that… I planned this shoot around the colours I have become so fond of; Red, blue and white. These are the colours of the American flag, the British flag,…

A Trump Presidency


With CNN News Channel in the background, I woke up, showered, had breakfast and got ready to walk out the door. As the presidential election results continued to stream in, I could feel the knot in the pit of my stomach tightening. Realizing I had been standing by the door fully kitted ready to leave for about 15 minutes, I…

Colour your World


Nothing makes me happier than to see a little beauty in the world. The sighting of a well-dressed lady or gentleman is the simplest of joys for me; I usually try to convey my appreciation for the effort made by giving a nod and a smile. And if they are approachable, I’ll generally stop and compliment the lady, or ask…

My time in Europe is set to end as the year comes to a close and I’m already preparing to get back home in the US and resume my life as I know it. I’m excited about seeing my boys again,…

Raising the Bar


I hope you’ve been keeping well. This video comes to you from Bilbao, Spain. I’ve been doing my best to create useful content over at my YouTube channel, and today I’m sharing one of those topics here on the blog. The term ‘raising the bar’ means to do something better than before, to show progress, to register improvement. My take on…

Touring Europe


Hi guys! I’ve been flying for a few months now and so far so good! I’ve seen a few more cities here in Europe and I’m having a lot of fun while at it. I’m slowly settling into a routine, inasmuchas that’s possible on a flight schedule with erratic hours. We get our month flight schedule mid current month so this…

Flying High, Literally


A little update about my life and what’s been keeping me busy. You might already know I’d been following training for the past 2 months. I can now reveal that I was training to be a cabin crew member with Brussels Airlines and I successfully earned my wings June 30th and started flying July 1st. It was a long and intense journey with…

Back in Brussels


Hi guys, It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I seem to do my best work when I’m home, mainly because of hubby’s support. Just to keep you all updated, I flew back to Brussels Belgium at the end of April, so I’ve been here now close to a month. Hubby got me a nice studio apartment at…

Write the Vision


Hi ya’all! Hubby took me to the beach here in Connecticut for the weekend and we had a lovely time walking around and discovering random seaside places. We also had an impromptu photo shoot, and as I looked through the beach telescope, I got to thinking about how our outlook in life affects our perceptions, and the eventual outcomes as…

Spring has Sprung


It’s been a lovely few days being home with my loved ones. Spring has sprung some lovely sunshine and our spirits are lifted. I think everybody loves spring because it’s a time of rebirth, a season of new beginnings. What winter subdues, spring awakens back to life. The birds chirp and animals come out of hibernation.   My mood is…

Instagram Changes


Two weeks ago, Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) announced it would abandon the chronological feed and will instead roll out a new feed that will use an algorithm to prioritize certain posts based on users’ personal interests. Facebook itself made similar changes back in 2011 when they switched from a chronological feed to an algorithm-based real-time feed. What does…

Home to mum duties


Hi my lovelies! I am writing this post from the University of Connecticut where my son studies. This was my first stop when we arrived back in the US last week and the young man and I agreed that I’d come up frequently so I can spend as much time with him as I can before I leave. Okay, he…

The sun’s shining and temperatures are rising, and that is always reason for good cheer as far as I’m concerned. My boy is away for the weekend, gone to attend an annual convention with his group of friends in Boston –he’s…

Home to the US


Hello lovelies!!! The weather has been great here in Connecticut today. Signs of the latest snowstorm have completely vanished melted away by the warm temperatures and the gentle sunshine. I spent my day at the Westfarm Mall picking up a few ‘essentials’ (that’s debatable) that I’d really wanted while abroad. It felt good to get behind the wheel, play some…

The Brussels Rundown


Hello Lovelies! After almost 3 weeks in London, hubby and I crossed the English Channel into Belgium for a week -this post summarizes that stay. Belgium was a whirlwind of events, both business and pleasure. We ran around so much that we didn’t get home until past midnight with just enough energy to crawl into bed and do it all…

In Worthing England with the family

The England Rundown


It’s been a whirlwind of activities in the past month, so much such that I couldn’t keep up with updating my blog. Quite frankly I would have been able to fit it in had I wanted to but I instead chose to enjoy the moments and the unfolding events and to update these to my blog later. I however made…

Still in London


Hi lovelies, I’ve been away for a while and I’ve really missed coming here and catching up. As you might have seen from my previous post, my beloved father-in-law passed away in England and I travelled from Belgium and my husband from the US for his funeral this February. The day after Dad passed I had a bad accident where…

About Harry Grey


‘What can I say about Harry Grey?’ is how all tributes to my beloved father-in-law began at his farewell service this past Friday February 26th 2015 in Worthing, Sussex, England UK. Born on 21st May 1933, he passed on quietly on the wee-morning of Thursday February 18th 2016, living to the ripe age of 82 years old. Dad Harry lived…

Visiting Friends


Hello lovelies, I spent a lovely weekend with my friend Molly and her family in the town of Bornem located in the Belgian Countryside. I’ve known Molly from when our kids were tiny teenyboppers playing side by side in the playpen after an introduction by a mutual acquaintance, and we’ve remained friends ever since. After my relocation to the US,…
