[Eye Candy] : b for bonnie

We don't usually blog about other blogs, not for any specific reason but there's a lot of lovely blogs out there and if we start we'll probably never finish! However, today we bumped into a very irresistible one, we were fascinated by its minimal layout, breathtaking images and interesting content. The style and topics shout 'Love Me' or rather 'blog about me'! I guess we enjoyed it a lot.
Take a look, hope you like it too..
