‘If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere you go.’ Van Gogh I declare the world to be the most profound, beautiful thing that ever existed. Its beauty as well as its entities do have an effect on our senses. But what is it about nature that makes us declare of its beauty? Nature always has a way of bringing a lot of beauty into our lives just as there is so much around for us to see, touch and hear.

It is safe to state that, in this day and age, if you have no clue what that means you have been living under a rock.  World over, selfies have been taken of individuals (no age restrictions) or/and with friends/celebrities/monumental buildings and views, and have flooded the social media platforms for years.

Woman Crush: Peggy Guggenheim

Marguerite “Peggy” Guggenheim also known as just Peggy Guggenheim was an American art collector, bohemian and socialite.  She was born to the wealthy New York City Guggenheim family, she was the daughter of Benjamin Guggenheim, and the niece of Solomon R. Guggenheim, who would establish the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. In the high-rolling, modern-Medici world of 20th-century art patronage and art collecting, Peggy Guggenheim was unique. She was an insatiable art collector like nobody else, picking up items that didn’t sell, and works for which there was, as yet, no market, just because she loved them. She bought art, not as an investment, but because she saw something…
