Every year, my family and I try to experience and explore one fascinating city. This year we traveled to the beautiful city of Istanbul, Turkey. The ancient ruins, the culture and food were seriously out of this WORLD! A picture is worth a thousand words, so have a peek at the photos from my recent adventure and feel free to share any comments below! Xo
View from the hotel room overlooking the Bosphorus
Dinner at Tuğra- an opulent Turkish restaurant located inside our hotel (Ciragan Palace)
Best rice pilaf EVER!
Hagia Sophia (The Church of the Holy Wisdom)
Inside the Basilica Cistern- if you look closely, you can see the carp fish swimming in the water. The carp eat all the algae!
Inside the Grand Bazaar- I found it quite challenging to leave this place..
An assortment of herbs, spices and teas
Photographer Vincent Bousserez continues his ‘Larger Than Life’ series for famous luxury label Louis Vuitton. In this series, Bousserez displays tiny golfers, newly-weds, construction workers (who carve out embedded logos in the LV products) and more! Take a look at the fancy mini world. Xo
A few weeks ago, I had a super short, fab visit to Miami. I love checking out the see-and-be-seen hot spots in Miami- especially the places that involve FOOD!!! This past trip, we dined at “The Restaurant” in the hotel Setai, South Beach and ohemgee…TO DIE!!! The Asian/Indian fusion menu sounds as mouth watering as it is. Nevertheless, I readily indulged in their miso black cod and the outcome was delish. I’m craving to go back but until my next Miami adventure, here are a couple of pictures I’d like to share with you. Xo
Pineapple fried rice. It didn’t stand a chance!
A Valrhona chocolate cake with hazelnut & lemon sorbet to satisfy my über sweet tooth…superb!

Here are more obsessions that inspire me (and will hopefully cure your Monday Blues)- all from tumblr. Xo
Everyone knows I have a MAYJAH sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied on a daily basis. One of my favourite dessert boutique restaurants/lounges in Toronto is “Moroco Chocolat“. From the Alice in Wonderland themed decor to the sinfully sweet selection of technicolour macarons and velvety Valrhona chocolate, this is heaven on Earth for me! How amazinggg does this Tiramisu look (it was delish)? I’m anxious to go back for High Tea!
Here are a few more photos I pulled from Google…
Have a sinfully sweet day! Xo
