Costa Rica {Part 4 Atenas}

 

“Hair gets lighter. Skin gets darker. Water gets warmer. Drinks get colder. Music gets louder. Nights get longer. Life gets better.”

Summer

 

Summer might be over but I still can share the memories with you, can’t I?

Costa Rica {Part 5}

“Shimmering reflections on water, clear starry nights, floating butterflies, gold jewelry against sun-kissed skin, a love letter. . .  It’s the small things that count.”

Wearing Lilac in Costa Rica

Spending my last bit of summer in Costa Rica.

Nothing better than making new friends in a new country, enjoying new conversations and connections.


This lovely lilac dress is from topshop but somehow I can’t find them online :/

Go to the store and see if you’re lucky! It’s super pretty in person.

Perfect Off-Shoulder for Summer

Everyone’s wearing off-shoulder for the past 2 years. My very first memory of this style was from Princess Diana (HERE) and she totally nailed it.

I think it’s absolutely beautiful with elegance & sexy without too revealing. I’ve seen so many ladies wear it and it seriously looks good on any girls and any body shapes.

I have one too many of them but they’re all necessary! HERE, HERE  & HERE.

Pants: Topshop, HERE & HERE

Sunnies: Rayban, HERE

Shoes: Elie Saab Couture, similar HERE

Top: Below

You probably already have a few in your closet, but just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t look at the menu.

Am I right? :p

Namaste

The last day at Lhasa mom and I spent it in relaxed fashion. Just strolling around town and buying gifts.

It’s so hot during the day and the sun set around 10PM, so we usually left the hotel around 6PM, the gentle afternoon sunlight was all that we could handle.

Tibet {Part 5} Potala Palace

Long history short, Potala Palace was built by a Tibetan emperor and generations of Daila Lama resided there (except the current one).

Now the palace is open to Tibetan Buddhists and tourists to pray and admire Buddha statues and the tombs of past Dailas. Oh trust me, their tombs are not like any ordinary tombs, they’re magnificent, dripping in gold and exquisite jewels.

Unfortunately, cameras are not allowed inside so please use your imagination, or see herehere .

Tibet {Part 4} Lhasa

After days of climbing the mountains, we finally made it to civilization – Lhasa!!

But who knew it was only more climbing and walking awaits us. No complains tho, we just. really. needed. oxygen.

We checked in to a boutique hotel in Bakuojie, it’s an old neighborhood in Lhasa filled with color, amazing food, and traditional shops!

Tibet {Part 3} Yamdrok Lake

Tibet is filled with lakes and mountains and they are considered spiritual lives to Tibetans.

You might have seen so many just from my previous posts (if you haven’t, check it out here & here).

But they’re not the same.

Yamdrok is one of the most beautiful and one of the four holy lakes.
