How to Find Cheap Flights to Europe

Since living in Germany, flying to America and back has been a priority for me so I can still see family and friends.  However, if I had to pay $1,500/ticket each time, it would not be feasible to travel as often. Thankfully, I've found a way to get to America and back to Germany (and other parts of Europe), for just $350 round-trip. Too good to be true?

A Day at the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher of Ireland were absolutely incredible to see in person. They were one of the many highlights and my favorite place we visited while in Ireland. It was an unforgettable experience and one that I will forever cherish. If you're in Ireland, I cannot stress enough how worth it is to drive to the west coast and see these beautiful cliffs!

Mykonos Photo Diary

Mykonos Island was one of the most charming islands we visited during our seven days of island hopping in Greece.  From beautiful alleys to restaurants over looking the ocean and the iconic mills, this island was absolutely stunning. 

Although spending a few more days would have been ideal, one day was a perfect amount of time to see the main sites on the island and enjoy everything.

Covering Acne & Scars Makeup Tutorial

Until I find a magic potion or solution, make-up is my go-to way to feel more confident in my acne-prone and scarred skin. I am super passionate about the power of make-up and how it can make a person feel (especially someone with bad acne and unruly skin). I know there are so many strong opinions on make-up out there. I totally understand both sides, but for me, this is what works!

A Weekend in Paris

Spending a weekend in Paris is definitely not enough time for this romantic and charming city, but I will take what I can get.  Paris was one of those places I knew I just had to see while living in Europe. After a quick 48 hours in Paris, I can confidently say it surpassed my expectations and is just as lovely as all the 90s films portray it to be.

What to Expect When Sailing the Greek Islands

The Greek Islands were everything I dreamed they would be and more.  The atmosphere and landscape was picturesque, the people were extremely kind, and the food was to die for. I went in hoping it would be a trip of a lifetime and it really was. Sailing allowed us to see so much more of the islands than we would have otherwise and gave us a whole new perspective.

Life in Germany 001

Welcome to my first series of "Life in Germany", this will be a monthly update of any and all things Germany. It's an idea I have had for a while and is long overdue, better late than never?

One of my favorite things about living in Germany is by far the Autobahn. Before I moved to Germany, I thought the Autobahn was just one road somewhere in the middle of Germany. Kind of like a touristy spot where people rented BMWs and drove fast.

A Jazzy Stay in Berlin: Ellington Hotel

I find it so important to find a hotel or accommodation in a city that truly reflects the place you are visiting.  Ellington Hotel Berlin did just that.

As soon as you walk into this 1920s building, you feel welcomed and invited in this bright and trendy space.  The space is big and open, but some how still cozy. One of my favorite features of the hotel is the brass detailing along the windows and walls -- so gorgeous.

Tips & Tricks for Ordering from SheIn

SheIn, for those of you that might not know, is an online shopping website with a huge inventory at crazy low prices (seems too good to be true).  Is it? I first ran across SheIn from seeing other bloggers rave about their perfect finds and how they just got a dozen items for under $100. This girl loves a good steal. So, naturally, I did some investigation to figure out if this was some scam or the best news since Target's clothing line upped its game.

A Dreamy Escape in the Greek Islands, Paros Palace

Paros Palace set the bar high (like reallyreally high) for the rest of our trip in Greece. Just a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride from the Paros Port, Paros Palace sits on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean and the mountains nearby.  The views are absolutely breathtaking as you can see in the photos above and that's just one of the many perks of this little oasis overlooking the Aegean Sea.
