5 Essentials For a Long Flight

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

As you may or may not know Letters to La La Land is going to Europe this summer, so in the spirit of that I have come up with our top 5 long flight essentials. 

Foot rest- If you are short like me and can't touch the floor you can sit comfortably on those long flights. You can hang this from the tray table, so convenient.

Face Mist- A long flight with all that recycled air can leave your face dry, and tired. Having a face mist will not only hydrate your skin but perk you up once you land. 

Travel Pillow- A travel pillow is essential, especially if you are one of those lucky people who can sleep anywhere. I found this new one on Amazon that I cannot wait to try.

Tablet/eReader/Book- Any one of these will do, when you have shorter flights in-between your longer ones they don't always provide entertainment so its good to have your own. As well, for when you have a lay over at the airport there's only so much people watching I can do before i'm bored.

Noise Cancelling Headphones- These are great no baby will ever be the bane of your existence on a flight again. Just pop these babies on and go to sleep or watch a movie either way your not hearing anything you don't want to.

What are your long flight essentials? Share your tips and tricks with us!





OOTD - Spring Cleaning

Monday, April 23, 2018

I am ion process of downsizing my closests. Yes there s is not there by mistake. I have multiples, and sadly enough they are not in the same house. Sometimes I move things around and it gives it an illusion of me being organized but my wardrobe is not, its a mess. So I started with one drawer and one walk in closet at a time, and than I found these pants and got distracted haha. They still had tags on, and after a moment of sheer panic that they would fit I tried them on. I think I originally picked them up for work but today I opted for a more casual look.

OOTD - The Softest Sweater Dress

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Sweater dresses are such a hit or miss for me. I struggle with them because most are some version of a bodycon dress, and I feel very self-conscientious about wearing them. However, I wish you guys could feel how freaking soft it is. I originally picked it up for work but with pair of sneakers and a denim jacket it worked well for casual look as well.










OOTD - New Heights

Monday, April 16, 2018

When Amy says "I need you to climb on that brick post" you climb on the post. I have been blogging for nearly 3 years, and even tho over time I got more comfortable in front of the camera, I don't think I will ever be 100% confident and comfortable with having my photo taken.  It worked out perfectly that I was wearing my favorite pair of yoga jeans since I had to climb on things. They are not only super chic, but comfortable enough to (do yoga in) climb things.

Five of the Most Romantic Cities in Europe for Couples

Thursday, April 12, 2018

As many of you know, Zahra got engaged last year and wedding planning has been in full swing. Her and her fiancé are heading on a European adventure that will double as their honeymoon. This got us thinking about what are some of the most romantic cities in Europe that everyone should visit. Here is the 5 we landed on, let us know what you guys think:

Paris, France
This might seem like a oblivious choice, well because its Paris. The beautiful artisanal restaurants,  intimate cafes and breathtaking architecture make for a perfect romantic holiday.

Venice, Italy
Zahra and her fiancé are actually going to Venice, so she will be able to let us know how amazing it actually was after her trip, but for now here are the reason we think Venice is one of the most romantic cities. The stunning archicture, endless canals you can take romantic rides through, amazing food and some of the most charming places to stay are what make Venice wonderful.

Santorini, Greece
 You have probably Santorini been seduced by it’s picture-perfect Santorini charm. Beautifully inviting white Cycladic houses, spectacular panoramic views and the breath taking sparkling water.

Sicily, Italy
From everything I have learned, Sicily is hard not to enjoy.  As the largest of the Italian islands, Sicily is oozing with charm, surrounded in stunning beaches, lushes mountains, warm weather and always featuring mouth-watering cuisine. The beaches in Siracusa, Sicily, Italy. The jaw-dropping coastline of the coastal strip of Syracuse has some of the most beautiful beaches that can be found on the island, with long white sandy shorelines and magic of the crystal blue waters, it’s a must see.

Budapest, Hungary 
Budapest is steeped in history, and sights are truly impressive. The weather is warm, food is delicious and the wine is AMAZING. Hungary’s other regions can be visited on a day trip from Budapest. For example, Lake Balaton is only about an hour’s drive south of the capital. You can visit wine regions, small villages, castles, parks, and other attractions while maintaining a base in the capital city.
