Beach life – taking a breather

_DSC6697

After an intense working month, I took a breather and spent a week in Punta Cana with some great company. The Bavaro beach was just as in pictures – cushiony white sands and turquoise ocean. Beach resort vacation is definitely the most fun with a big group of fun friends. We rode dune buggies in the mud, sailed on the catamaran, played volleyball on the sands, searched for starfish in the ocean, played Resistance at night, and made deep conversations by the beach. It was meditating to shut my mind off from work and let my mind breathe completely. We all need it. It doesn’t have to be by a beach. Just give time to relax and recharge so you can take on life with a positive and energized spirit.

I’m always impressed by the creative names that people come up with to make things appear more fancy. Polyurethane (PU) is a great man-made alternative to real leather. Instead of “fake leather”, we give it a french twist by calling it “faux leather”. Woah, PU just got bumped in class, it’s french! Recently I’ve been noticing “vegan leather” surfacing in my online shoppings. Wait, it sounds like it’s not fake leather but at the same time animal-friendly?? Actually, it’s another fancy name for “eco-friendly fake leather”. =D

I don’t mind artificial leather at all, this PU skirt from ASOS was a great find for me. Much less expensive than leather but still very soft and holds a puffy-structured shape. I loved pairing it with this soft, pastel silk blouse with a flowy slit shoulder!
