GREECE EXPLORING IN #VACAYSTYLE

As a girl all about the ease of things, but of course, without sacrificing style, Vacay Style was the answer to all of my packing problems! 5 pieces = 15 outfits….what?! Yes, you read that right. And these pieces are perfect for pairing all on their own as well. It certainly made my pre-holiday prep all too easy and allowed me to focus on the important stuff–what to see and what to eat on  my Greek holiday! vacay-style-greece vacay-style-greece vacay-style-greece vacay-style-greece

The Vacay Style pieces are versatile and include bold, unique patterns–perfect for helping you dress for the holiday experience! Also, since the pieces easily mix and match, you can fit it all within one carry on!

GET ON THE MILK TRAIN

Covent Garden is buzzing with delicious dessert spots….there’s Laduree, Godiva, and you know my all time favorite..Ben’s cookies. But just steps away from the madness of buskers on every corner, down Bedford Street is the newest in unique sweet treats, Milk Train Cafe.

After seeing a few images pop up on insta, I knew I had to try this cotton candy cloud of ice cream. Yes, it’s a tasty waffle cone filled with delicious soft serve ice cream, topped with sweet candies and then surrounded in a cloud of cotton candy. What the what. Also, did you know they call cotton candy “candy floss” here in the UK?!

So I met a new friend at Covent Garden and we strolled through the shops chatting all along the way to Milk Train. We both ordered a classic chocolate (seriously good!), mine with salted caramel toppings and hers with m&ms, and of course, with the cloud of goodness. Then the photos ensued. And in natural progression, then the melting. So we gobbled it up as quick as we could! And thank goodness, they pass out wet wipes here! We were a sticky mess.

To walk off this mid-afternoon snack, we headed over to one of my favorite views of the city–Waterloo Bridge. I love that you can see ‘old’ and ‘new’ London from either side of this bridge!

CARNABY-LONDON-FASHION-WEEK

LFW AT CARNABY

The fashionistas have descended on London for Fashion Week. Walk any street in Soho and you’re sure to spot the latest (and sometimes craziest) trends. And London is all about welcoming the style icons to the city, with pop-ups and street festivals on almost every major shopping corner.

Carnaby Street is one of my favorite London shopping areas with its’ bright buildings, always festive decor, and quirky dining options. Bonus : it’s steps away from Liberty London (who doesn’t love this?!), Regent Street shopping, and literally one million high street shops on Oxford Street.
