Off To Greece

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great week. We were supposed to be leaving to Italy last weekend, but due to cold weather we postponed it for this weekend. It's still cold in Italy, so we changed our mind, and as you're reading this post we're off to GREECE. I'm so excited! As much as I've traveled Europe, I've never been to Greece. Greece was always in my list and for the first time I get to go with my son and mother.
It's been two weeks since we left Florida (home) and traveled to Europe, and I find myself wishing my hubby could be here too. Time here is fun, but sometimes, I feel like Anayan needs his dad and can be to hard to handle.

We do exciting stuff here all the time. Today, we took a train to another town, and a bus on the way back. Anayan is all about riding the train, bus and plane, and has almost forgot about his favorite garbage truck toy. We went to the local pool with an inside and outside water slide, after that we stopped at a fun playground with a zip-line and Anayan had sooo much fun on it!

You all have a great weekend! Follow me on Instagram for more pictures from Greece.

Beauty Must Haves When I Travel

Traveling to Europe means that I only get to bring one luggage, and from the one luggage my son is taking half of it. He already has his own luggage full of stuff, and in mine, his toys.  
My half contains clothes, toiletries and makeup. 
Today, I would like to give you a sneak peek of the beauty must haves when I travel. I only take the most important and necessary pieces with me. When I have packing space issues, I only bring my shampoo/conditioner facial cleanser, moisturizer, foundationmascara, contouring palette and some lipstick/chapstick. Here are the items I have in my luggage here in Europe.

Purador Shampoo and Conditioner
I made a video about this product and I absolutely love it. This shampoo and conditioner bottle is not small and easy to pack with, but I love this brand so much I  manage to find a place for them in my luggage. My hair feels soft, full and moisturized with a nice sheen after each use.

Purador Agean Oil

I use this as a makeup remover and a face, lip and hand moisturizer. This oil is the best of the best I have ever owned. It prevents aging, smooths skin and gets rid of dry and flaky spots.  

I have been using this bottle for two months, several times a day,  and still have little over 1/2 left. I highly recommend this product!

Face cleaner- Exposed Skincare
I have been using Exposed for about 5 weeks and my skin is absolutely pimple free! Usually, when I fly and don't have a lot of sleep my skin breaks out, but since I have been using this product my skin feels soft and spot free. This product works for me and is even better than Cindy Crowford's face cleaner kit or Proactiv. We all have different skin tips, so this is just me and what works for  me. 
I am noticing a lot of improvement in the texture and clarity of my skin. It's definitely much more even looking and the redness around my nose is slowly disappearing. YAY! I am planning to continue using the line and keeping you guys posted on my progress!

Lash M Mascara
This mascara is amazing and really extends your lashes with a fuller appearance and zero smears off during the day. When I first started using it I saw fuller appearance and the rest came with time. This is the only mascara I've used for about four months now. With mascaras I go back and forth, but this one is a good one to keep.

BareMinerals Foundation 
BareMinerals Foundation is correcting mineral foundation and brightening serum in one. I use number 10 Bare Buff and 12 Beige Sand. I've used this foundation for about 10 years. This foundation has a natural finish and the look and feel of beautiful, youthfull skin appearance!

Avant Garde Palette - Contour Kit by Forever21
This kit is from Forever21, but perfect for traveling. With my experience, pouder stuff usually breaks, so for that reason I don't like to travel with some expensive product. Forever21 kits have great countouring shades and looks great on face.

Rainy Weather

Hello everyone and happy weekend. I'm suppose to be off to Italy, but unfortunatelly the weather here is very bad, 16 degrees Celsius and rainy, so we delayed our trip till next weekend. 
Anayan is having so much fun and keeps saying that he wants to move here. We do fun activities every day. He is fascinated with the big city electric transit like the subway, troley, accordion bus and train. I took him to ride all of them and he was soooo excited. He also likes escalators and rode them for about 1/2 hour in one of the European malls.
Follow on Instagram to see what else we doing here.

The Czech Republic

Hello everyone!  Today, I'm writing  from the Czech Republic, on vacation, visiting my family.  Anayan and I got here last Wednesday. I was very worried to take an 18 hour flight with a 4 year old, as I had an no idea how he's going to take such a long flight with a 7 hour time difference. I was worried for nothing!  He was sooo good, didn't cried or throw a fit once! I kept him pretty occupied with the tablet, but he was mainly excited about the airplane and asked questions (how does it land and take off, why the plane makes a loud noise, why it feels like the plane is tilted . ..) about 70% off the flight. He flew two times before, to Hawaii and CR, but was to little to remember. This time he made sure he knew every detail of it. 
The only hard part about an 18 hour flight was that the flight was an overnight flight. Anayan took a two hour nap and I didn't sleep at all! You can only imagine how exhausted I was when we arrived. The excitement to see his cousins kept him going for another entire day without a nap. Luckily, it only took him two days to get back on schedule here.
Below are some pictures from a small town here called Tabor. As you can see the weather is not great. Most of the time it's sunny with a cold breeze, and being spoiled by Florida, I have to wear a worm sweater.
I'm going to stay in the Czech Republic for four more weeks, but on Saturday, my mom, Anayan and I will be off to Italy.

Heatless Beachy Waves Tutorial

If you watched my last video, you know I try not to use any heat tools on my hair. I don't blow dry and I minimally use a curling iron. Heat damages your hair,  so when I need to curl my hair I use heatless curls.
Today,  I would like to share one of my heatless methods "Heatless Beachy Waves Tutorial". This is an overnight method. This style is super easy, fast and last the entire day. 
I hope you will like it.

Bright Yellow Bag For Spring

This post is my last one scheduled. Starting next week you should start seeing some from my vacation in Europe. Of course only with the luck of Internet connection here, haha!
I bought this Vince Camuto bag a few months ago and have gotten so much use out of it already. The bright yellow color pairs easily with so many different things and colors.
Unfortunately, this bag has sold out so quickly and is no longer available. I've spotted an almost identical bag in Rebecca Minkoff collection. I linked it in this post in case you've been trying to find a bright yellow bag!
