One benefit of waiting around an airport for your plane to leave is having uninterrupted time to do something we don’t always get a chance to do. For me, on a recent New York jaunt, that meant I had lots of time to tuck into a ton of magazines. As I was reading through my […]

Taking pictures has never been easier.  With smartphones and new DSLR cameras, even the novice photographer can take fantastic shots.

I just love how soft grey compliments so many different colours and pairing it with the softest of pink….well, it’s just a lovely, fresh palette.
