Have you ever wished you could escape to an all pink whimsical wonderland? Have you ever wished such a place even existed? Welcome to dreams of Fuji Shibazakura — a springtime flower festival. In Japan, at the foot of the infamous Mt. Fuji, lies a breathtaking 2.4-hectare flower field where you can be surrounded by nearly 800,000 pink flowers, known as “shibazakura.” Surely, the flower festival is a surreal experience and a must-see for both nature aficionados and those who love all things pink!
You might be thinking of water — a tidal wave, a rippling lake, a rhythmic river. However, all of the above qualities echo in the gorgeous spirals and formations of Antelope Canyon, found in Navajo Nation, Arizona.
Exotic white sand? So passé. You don’t have to travel across the world to see surreal locales in technicolor palettes — we’ve got some hidden gems right here at home in the USA. This week’s royal shades of purple and pink are located at Pfeiffer Beach, a local favorite along the Big Sur mountain range in California.
I could name tons of conventionally beautiful bodies of salt water that I’d love to dip my feet into: The Dead Sea, The Great Lakes, the Pacific Ocean, and so on. Salt flats, however, are an entirely different story — an otherworldly natural confection. Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, spanning over 4,000 square miles in Bolivia. Among cacti-lined islands and flamingo populations, the snow-white sea of salt looks as if it came straight out of a Salvador Dali painting. But this scene is no mirage- it’s a very real place that won’t disappear if you pinch yourself.
Pamukkale literally means “cotton castle” in Turkish, and it’s easy to see why — this geological wonder is famous for its pillowy rock structures and spectacular, pastel springs. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the landscape has been a tourist attraction for literal centuries, back when it was home to the ancient Greco-Roman city of Hierapolis.
Summer in New York can be a bit…difficult. Take the subway? Have fun baking like an oven down there. Walking outside? You’re frying like an egg on the sidewalk. The AC in your office? Probably faulty, if it even exists. We would walk around in a bikini once it hits 85… if it were socially acceptable.
This summer, though? Things are going to be different. We’ve some game-changing designs in our wardrobe: innovative, sheer layering pieces and outerwear-friendly lingerie trends.
Here’s the secret style formula: tasteful accessories + all that sheer mesh in your wardrobe you always wonder how to style correctly + your favorite lingerie that’s too pretty to stay cooped up in your bedroom = a minimal, wearable, comfortable summer style that can handle the heat and the streets.

Egypt isn’t just home to pyramids and hieroglyphics. Beautiful and rich as the presence of ancient art there is, it would be unfortunate to overlook the region for its equally stunning natural features. Today, we’re dreaming about one of Egypt’s natural treasures – the White Desert. Continue reading
