My dream of a white Christmas became a reality last year, we embarked on a road trip across the country and spent a few days surrounded by snow and the incredible Mont Blanc as a backdrop. It definitely was the best Christmas I’ve ever had, I couldn’t have asked for more and it’s all thanks to The Greek Mister for making it happen. While I was on a business trip in Australia, the Greek Mister sole

Some of you may know that I’ve just recently returned from a business trip in Australia and if you’ve been following that story on my instagram or facebook page, you’ll know that my colleague who’s traveling with me fell seriously ill and she needed to do an emergency appendectomy while there.

I’ve never experienced the four seasons until recently, VERY recently. I grew up in the Philippines and moved to the Middle East afterwards – both places only had two seasons so I never get to experience the complete change of your natural surroundings 4 times in a year. When I left Dubai in 2014, I spent about 6 months in the US – I experienced a bit of summer, the entire autumn and a bit of wint

The highlight of our recent holiday in the US was our stay in the beautiful Omni Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. While The Greek Mister and I were planning for our US autumn drive before our holidays, choosing which hotel to stay in as we break our drive was probably the most stressful for us.

To My Sister, On Her Wedding Day.

November 20, 2017
I attended my sister’s beautiful wedding last month in Maryland. I was supposed to be one of the bridesmaids but I decided against it, anything about formal affairs just isn’t for me. Hate is a strong word but it’s the best description of how I feel about formal affairs – family or not. This is why my own wedding was small and intimate, I can’t handle being the center of attention for
