My favorite kind of outfit is a dress that you just put on and you feel like a million dollars in it. Am i right? And what’s even better is when you pay next to nothing for that said dress. I purchased this blue striped Adam Lippes dress a few years ago when Loehman’s still had brick and mortar retail stores. My husband and I used to go there a ton just to “check out” what they had since we were bored. Everytime we went there we would walk out with bags of clothing that we paid so little for and I always wondered “HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?”. Economically, I didn’t see it working for them which is why I guess they closed a lot of the store down.
I love the early summer time in Atlanta. The weather is perfectly warm, and not too blazing hot yet. The trees have bloomed and the city has literally become a forest within a city in the middle of it. There is a reason Atlanta is known for its gorgeous greenery. One of my favorite spots to go on a summer weekend is Piedmont Park in the early morning.
My husband lived in Chicago when we met and we had a long distance relationship for 2 years before we got married. I had my fare share of trips to the city over the years while visiting family and friends after he moved to Atlanta with me. It’s one of the few cities that will always have a special place in my life. Recently we flew up to Chicago for the weekend for a friends birthday. Here’s a list of things to do, eat, and see if you are in the city for a limited time over a weekend.
We spent a few days in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina last weekend. I visited Charleston many times and Savannah as well which are very close by, but Hilton Head Island was never on my radar until we were invited by family to come and spend a few days with them on the island. Of course we couldn’t refuse and packed for the trip!
While my husband and I were visiting family in Zagreb, Croatia we decided to take a short trip to Budapest, Hungary. A train ride seemed like the best and cheapest option so we bought tickets at the train station and headed on our way (you can buy the tickets online on Rail Europe here as well). Before we headed out on our trip to Budapest we booked our stay through the website Jetsetter.
There are a few things you’ll need to know when visiting the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Here is a list of 9 things that are good to know before your first visit. Some are fun facts about the Blue Lagoon and others are tips on what to try out once you are there. Hope you enjoy your stay!
As we were waiting for the bus to pick us up from our hotel for our scheduled visit to the Blue Lagoon I was thinking in the back of my head that we might not get picked up again. However, I can say that on our final and 4th day we finally made it to one of the 25 wonders of the world! The well known Blue Lagoon!
Part 2 of our Iceland travel itinerary started off with a early morning drive from Reykjavik through south Iceland. An hour into our drive we were greeted with the most spectacular sunrise. So many people were stopping on the side of the road to take pictures, that we had to join in too. We stopped at a few stops to admire the sunrise, especially once we arrived to a valley before the waterfalls. The sunshine was interacting so beautifully with the mist in the valley that it looked like the whole valley was lit. Truly spectacular!
Iceland is such a spectacular country with beautiful landscapes. My husband and I went in November for our 5 year anniversary. We’ve always wanted to go but never really found the right time. We were a little hesitant to go to Iceland during the winter, but I’m glad we did go during that time! Before we left we created a Iceland Travel itinerary so we can stay on track and see all the sights that we wanted to. Here is a rundown of how our trip of a lifetime planning went.
