KjeragboltenTry this with me—

Tucked away between two cliffs in the Lysebotn fjord of Norway is the Kjeragbolten. The Kjerag Mountain is known as “The Majesty of the Lysefjord” with mounting this rock atop a 1084 meter drop as the ultimate attraction for tourists.

June of 2014 was when I set my sights on obtaining what ended up being my most popular photo on social media while vacationing in Scandinavia. I highly recommend this trek for any daring hikers on the hunt for an impressive view! But like droves of tourists do each year, I greatly underestimated what it would take to stand on this rock.

[Here is what you need to know about Kjeragbolten]

Getting to Kjeragbolten is not possible by boat or carNearly everyone I asked in Stavanger, Norway (closest major city) told me that I could only take a boat to the famouIMG_1335s Lysefjord. I’m not sure if…

Glam Event Decor: MBFW Swim 2015

The Raleigh Hotel Miami

When we think of events in Miami, especially during Fashion Week, we think glam! With Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim & its glamorous after parties in full swing, we wanted to bring some of those glam event décor options your way!

While color is definitely necessary to any great decor this season, it doesn’t have to be too matchy. Dressing your tables or spicing things up with your linen and tableware with textures and patterns will add flare. And adding flare with creative, glam decorations can make the experience all the more fun!

We’ve drawn some amazing event design inspiration, and since visuals speak louder than words, here are some of our favorite designs!

 First stop: Nusas Lembongan and Penida

I’ve been talking about coming to Bali for a long time but have been side-tracked by loads of other places. Myanmar and the Philippines – destinations well worth the detour. And then Malaysia of course. After a couple of days in KL (after missing almost everything else, I wanted to make sure I get to see at least the final of the FIFA World Cup) and a week in the Perhentian Islands (stunning!), both with my newly-found travel companion Paul from Melbourne, I am now in Indonesia. I arrived in Bali and after a night in Sanur took a boat to Nusa Lembongan.
Nusa Lembongan
Cute little island whose waters are famous for their manta rays and one of the weirdest aquatic creatures ever: the Mola Mola or sunfish. Despite the name, the Mola Mola loves cold water. Fair enough. I don’t. After one fruitless attempt of finding…

Then nothing.
They were making fun of each other,
Playing with the overcooked broccoli,
Looking through the window to smile at fluffy clouds.
They were about to breathe new air and embrace the sun.
The confessions, apologies they were going to make,
The opportunities they were going to take.
Smiley faces and heartwarming feelings.
Their loves, their families, their dreams.
Then nothing.

Lightning Bolt…

A lightning bolt wed…

The ground by way of my head…

I thought.. I was dead…


All around I spun…

I was completely undone…

And my ears.. they rung…


It was quiet a spark…

Suddenly bright.. then so dark…

But it left.. no mark…


I stood on that knoll…

A quite confused lightning pole…

Still.. can’t tell a soul…


They’d all say I lied…

I should be split open wide…

I’d proof.. if I’d died…




Sometimes it’s better to be alive… than to be believed…

“Silk Waves and Words” … for July 6th…
