LACE SELF-PORTRAIT DRESS

March 21, 2017

I was looking for a dress for a friends wedding next month. I had my heart set on getting a lace dress from the designer Self-Portrait. His dresses are so super feminine and delicate and they are truly a work of art.  Plus they are very expensive as well. Fortunately I’m an avid user of ShopStyle (if you haven’t used it yet go now! It will save you so much money!).

48 HOURS IN BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

February 9, 2017

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.

I love trying out new cosmetics. However, I don’t always like to pay full price for it, #superfrugal. So when i signed up for ipsy about a year ago it was a perfect solution for me. Pay only $10 a month and get a cute little goody bag with 5 new items to try out. I have tested out so many amazing new items that have become my favorite. If you are in the same boat as me it’s well worth trying it out ipsy.

ICELAND VEGETARIAN RESTAURANTS

January 11, 2017
ICELAND FOOD

One thing that really shocked me was the price of food in Iceland. I heard that the food was expensive. However, you really don’t experience the sticker shock until you go out for dinner and end up with a bill for over $150. Yikes! Another hardship with Icelandic food is if you are on dietary restrictions, i.e. vegan/vegetarian. My husband can eat anything and everything, he does not discriminate between foods. Me on the other hand, I’m a vegetarian who likes to  keep it simple. A little bit of research before we went out to Iceland helped us narrow down which places we could eat at. One that satisfies his craving for trying out new seafood (Whale anyone?) and my love of pastries and quinoa. Below is a list of all the Iceland vegetarian restaurants we ate at that are great spots for a vegetarian & meat lover. Click the name of the restaurant to be directed to the website with the menu and more drool worthy photos. Bon Appétit!

ICELAND TRAVEL ITINERARY | (PART 2)

December 21, 2016

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!
