It was beautiful to go back to my second home once again. I was able to reminisce about my fond memories of my childhood there. And I loved catching up with my family and witnessing my cousin's beautiful marriage. Portugal will always have a special place in my heart and I can't wait to go back and explore it all over again.

On my way to the next destination...

My trip to Morocco was short but sweet. The day I spent there was filled with new experiences and beautiful sights. The Moroccan food I had at our hotel was so tasty! And sight-seeing Casablanca was an entertaining experience - it was my favorite part of the trip. Moroccan's use of mosaics was beautiful to look at. If I had had more time I definitely would have spent much longer admiring the countless patterns I saw. I truly hope to return one day and when I it will be for a much longer time.

When you do not have a photographer available, take matters into your own hands and take your own photos! Taking these photos brought me back to my first days as a blogger. If you look back to the earlier posts of my blog many of the photographs back then were taken by me and my little tripod in my parents backyard. What initially started as a fun summer hobby slowly developed into a passion.

As you can see nowadays I still play around with my surroundings and use random things as tripods when one isn't readily available. For this shoot I used my car and my little notebook (check out my sunglasses shot). And as you can see the photos turned out ok. Well except for this last one where I'm completely out of focus!
Have you tried taking your own photos before?

Thrifting is often a hit or miss for me (the latter being more accurate). But I must say it is quite the entertaining experience if you're patient and devoted to it. During one of my more successful trips to Goodwill I snagged this beautiful printed buttoned-down shirt. It features this intricate artistic print of reds and browns. The fabric of it is chiffon. And it has these flattering pleats that give it an airy look.

I decided to make this shirt the focal point of the outfit by simply styling around it and pairing it with accessories that purposely complement it. Overall, I think this outfit was a great success thanks to my little goodwill find.

Do you go thrifting as well?
