This month's man-candy is that of Guy Berryman, the sexy Scottish bassist for the British band Coldplay.

Greetings! Whew, finally back from vacation! Just got back last night, and I was utterly exhausted. Despite being just a ten-day trip, it was definitely a whirlwind of getting to and from places, sharing rooms with people in hostels, and being on my feet pretty much all day exploring the cities. If you're curious to … Continue reading I’m Back from Vacation!
Hello! It's that time of the year again...with the April holidays starting up, I'll be heading out on vacation once again. Considering that I haven't had a long, proper travel since December, I'm super excited to be going out for a longer period of time. Seriously, you can't imagine how long I've been waiting for … Continue reading On Vacation!
Bonjour, again! Picking up from where I left off in Part 1 of my visit to the châteaux of the Loire Valley, I boarded the shuttle once more after my time at the château de Chambord and made my way over to the next one: the château de Cheverny. Compared with the other two that … Continue reading Destination: Châteaux of the Loire Valley (Part 2)
(inspired by a rough-draft post I'd written a while ago on WordPress, here's the extended version of that poem. Enjoy!). Chemin de Fer An early mist spreads the sky like bed sheets on thin clouds, layered with the breeze of the Pacific Northwest along the slumbering shore. When the fog lifts, you can see white cliffs … Continue reading Chemin de Fer (poem)
Bonjour! This past weekend, I decided to get out of the house and take a trip over to the Loire Valley, located just south of Paris in the Centre region of France. In particular, I was interested in visiting the châteaux de la Loire, a cluster of chateaux situated along the Loire river. I'd been meaning to … Continue reading Destination: Châteaux of the Loire Valley, France (Part 1)

An Italian girl who loves to travel and has visited countries all over Europe and Asia, Fede is certainly an … Continue reading Sunshine Blogger Award #3
Happy Sunday, bloggers! This week's "Sunday Slow Jam" will be a slightly different one, for it features K-pop music! Granted, I've written a post on K-pop music, but it was more in the general sense. I haven't actually dedicated a "Sunday Slow Jam" to a single K-pop song, so this time around, I've decided to … Continue reading TAEYEON 태연 – Fine (SSJ #47)
Least favorite holiday of the year…Happy April Fool’s all the same!
Hey everyone, and happy May! I mean, March…hey, whaaattt??!!!
Happy April, folks.
Yup, today marks the first day of April. Not only that, but it’s also April Fools’ Day. For those who don’t know and/or don’t celebrate it, April Fools’ is a day dedicated to playing jokes and tricks on others, whether it be friends, peers, family, or even complete strangers. From little things such as saying, “Your shoe-lace is untied” (when, in fact, it isn’t) to larger-scaled pranks like announcing a Swiss Spaghetti Harvest on television (which actually happened), nothing is taken seriously on this day of jest.
And I hate it.
