I absolutely love seeing the Phillippines listed :) I miss it SO much!!!

I love Escapade & Holiday - two of my favourite songs ever :)

What I wouldn't do to be on the coast of somewhere beautiful! It's absolutely FREEZING here! I just took the dogs out and my hands are NUMB! ha I HATE the snow, but I am enjoying an unexpected and very welcome two days off from work :)

Lovely review Reni!
