Color and Texture


I love how the owners of these apartments use warm wood tones, different patterns and textures to make these spaces so inviting.

All these beautiful homes are available for home exchange  here. Many of us would love to travel the world but are often hindered by the cost of flight + accomodation. However, you can reduce those costs by exchanging your home with someone who wants to visit your neck of the woods. Of course it's natural to have reservations about opening your home to a complete stranger; but the risks and benefits are shared both ways. Addtionally, taking the time to get to "know" or to "vibe" the other party should alleviate much misgivings. I haven't gone on an  exchange just yet, but I definitely plan to in the future.

Hope y'all having a great weekend!!!

Social Chat

Last week a number of  Saudi women in the United Arab Emirates took a bold stand for female rights by driving through their nations capital, challenging the male-only driving rules. As we know women's rights are basically nonexistent in most Arab countries. So I wanted to say a big kudos to these women for standing up for what they believe!!!



Honoring Dads...

I know father's day has passed, but I wanted to share a little bit of info I saw on abc news a couple nights ago. As a mom my heart usually pounds a little harder whenever dad plays rough with the kids. I swear I always think my babies are gonna get hurt; but they never do...doesn't stop me from worrying. Well not only is my worrying unfounded it turns out roughhousing is actually good for the little buggers. Aside from the daddy/kid bonding it teaches them important life skills such as being good sports (when they lose) and boosts self-confidence when they do when....interesting :-) you can find more of the article here
