A Bit of Luxury

{Marina Bay Sands Hotel Infinite pool, Singapore. Located on the 57th floor, this pool offers fantastic views of Singapore financial area and if you swim up to the pool's edge, it looks like you're about to fall off the top of the world.}

Hope you all had a good start to the New Year! I hope 2020 brings you good health and happiness, and the fulfilling life that you all deserve.

Recently, I stumbled upon this picture of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel infinite pool while browsing the internet and thought I'd share it with you.
I wish I could afford to stay in this incredible hotel and treat myself to a bit of luxury someday, but my bank account doesn't allow for things like this.
In the meantime, I imagine myself floating in this amazing rooftop pool. Lol!

Hope you have an adventurous weekend! xx

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays, everyone! Can you believe 2020 is right around the corner? Thank you so much for such a wonderful year. I can't express how grateful I am to have you here. Also, thanks much for reading CUT and DRY. Very much looking forward to new posts and exciting adventures in 2020.

{I made this Christmas card from one of my photos of Plymouth, Devon, UK. A gift from me to all of you!}

'Tis the season to wish one another love and peace.
For those celebrating, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope you're all making this a Christmas to remember.

Enjoy the holiday season! xx

P.S. I was really moved by the heartwarming John Lewis & Partners Christmas 2019 Ad.
Someone said..."You know it's Christmas when you're crying over a John Lewis advert."
Couldn't agree more.

How About Having Breakfast with a Giraffe?

Giraffe Manor Hotel is an unusual hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, surrounded by 47 hectares of woods, in which Giraffes live in their natural habitat.

Not a bad idea actually, if only I could transport myself there! ;)

Hope you have an adventurous weekend! xx

A recent stroll on the beach really paid off.

I am currently working on a photography project about the effects of global climate change.

I am eagerly anticipating the new season. Hello, Autumn!
