Travel Adventures: Santorini

One of the last spots in our Euro trip was Santorini. Santorini was too beautiful to describe in words. I fell in love with this island and it made me want to visit many more Greek islands. Sadly we didn't find Kostas in Santorini, he was probably down at the docks fishing as per usual.  

We stayed in the town of Fira for three nights. Finding our hotel after getting off the bus was a mission but we luckily managed to find it after asking several people for directions (pretty much everyone speaks English but if you know Greek people are instantaneously more friendly towards you). Since Fira isn't located near any of the main beaches we rented ATVs for our entire stay. This was the best decision we made. Since we split the cost they weren't that expensive and they were super fun to drive around the island. While in Santorini we also drove to Oia to watch the famous sunset. Oia is a beautiful town and walking around and stepping into the small boutiques was a lot of fun. Two other friends of ours joined us in Santorini and we had a great time with them. I'd highly recommend staying in the main town Fira if travelling to Santorini. It's in the middle of the island so driving to Oia or the beaches isn't that far, accommodation prices are reasonable, there are many many food options (Billy's is a must for gyros), and has great nightlife!

Travel Adventures: Paris

Today's post is only with Paris photos because there were way too many photos I wanted to share. We spent five days in Paris so we ended up with lots of photos. I absolutely loved Paris. We got lucky with good weather during our entire stay which made our trip even more enjoyable. We also ended up going to the Palace of Versailles while we were there too and it absolutely gorgeous! Want to go there again and just to spend the day in the gardens reading a good book. Paris overall was a great experience and the people were so friendly! Paris I'll be back!

Travel Adventures: Nice, Eze, Barcelona

Welcome back! 

Today's another travel post - we'll be back to beauty posts soon I promise! Our next stop in our Europe trip was Nice, France. We took the train from Cinque Terre to Nice and the train ride was long but very scenic! Even though we had three trains to take, it all went really smoothly!

September 2014 Estee Lauder / MAC Warehouse Sale!

The Estee Lauder warehouse sale is coming up once again!


Unlike some other sales such as Shiseido and Lisa Cosmetics, this is a private sale and you need a ticket a to get in. 

I've been a few times in the past because I was able to get my hands on some tickets. Usually you can find people that sell their tickets on Kijiji or Craigslist, although Estee Lauder states that this is not allowed. If you can get your hands on these tickets I highly suggest you go!

Travel Adventures: Budapest, Hvar, Split

Budapest: 

Round two of travel posts. Our next stop was a night train away to Budapest. Even with the unfortunate crap weather we had, Budapest was a beautiful city. Some highlights included visiting the thermal baths (so nice!), visiting the Fishermen's bastion (great view), Matthias Church, Chain Bridge, and the pub crawls (ruin bars are a must)!
