NewsSmiles for Wednesday: Meet the Sloths

Ok, so I have a little thing for cute animal clips. The one with the cat playing the piano, or the baby panda sneezing…I love ‘em all. If you’ve got a tender heart for cute critters too, then you’ll coo over the video below. Meet the adorable orphan sloths of Aviarios del Caribe sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica. Wonderful footage taken by Amphibian Avenger.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

FashionNew Year Hot Spot Style: Manuel Antonio National Park

Beach. That is all you need to know about this New Year’s adventure.

But not just any beach. If I were to have my New Year’s way, I would head to the Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica located south of Quepos on the Pacific Coast, 132 km from San José. Tours through the park are available, including a rain forest walk where you might be so lucky as to spy a sloth!

Coastal Manuel Antonio at night is pitch black, being lit only by the moon — perfect for some stargazing. Instead of the big count-down at midnight, I would suggest quietly bringing in the New Year with a few good friends or your sweetie on the sands.

With spring coming, this would be a perfect place to try out next season’s trends: the Pocket Change Necklace in Gold [sold out!], the Silk Arboretum Maxi Dress, and the Bamboo Poetic 04 Gray and Silver WhipStitched T Thong
