Greece is one of the most magical places on earth. You can look at magazines and read dozens of blogs describing the breathtaking landscape and history, but nothing will compare to seeing it with your own eyes. If only there was a way to bottle up the crisp breeze, the deep blue Aegean Sea and the architecture of the whitewashed buildings. For me, Greece has always been a bucket list destination so when it was time to plan our honeymoon it was an easy choice. Andy and I wanted to truly experience the culture of Greece, along with its rich history and its beautiful volcanic base. For our trip, we decided to make three stops Athens, Santorini and Crete.

Unless you are living under a rock it’s hard to miss the new trend making its way through the fashion world: Tassel Everything! From statement earrings, necklaces to bracelets these little body ornaments are having their way with the spotlight. The trend has been spotted on celebrities to street style goddesses and now — it’s your turn! The key to perfecting this look is balancing your attire to get the tassel jewels to pop. I paired a simple off the shoulder blouse with green drop tassel earrings from ShopwithBold. I experimented with this look on my honeymoon and instantly fell in love with the trend.

Looking for an occasion to dress up? Well, say goodbye to the little black dress and walk into the light ladies. The new wardrobe must have? The little white dress. Just in time for Labor Day Weekend, it’s a simple look that instantly adds brightness to your skin tone, and it’s also a great base for layering jewelry, adding scarves and playing it up with shoes. This summer it was all about the cold shoulder and a plunging neckline – but there are so many different styles from strapless to long sleeves that can keep you shining all year round! The pictured dress was worn in Crete, Greece and it’s from online boutique, Lulus

I pulled aside some of my other favorite little white dresses below <3

When Kim Kardashian stepped onto the scene with contoured cheeks and the perfect cat eye, who knew it would change our beauty routine forever. Nowadays, if you’re not learning proper technique to a chiseled cheek on YouTube, then you’re skills might be lacking. Good makeup takes tons of practice but it also requires the proper tools for smooth foundation and a perfect smokey eye. Just like makeup – brushes can get very pricey. Depending on the brand, they can cost you up to $500 dollars. Ouch! If you’re a beginner don’t let that discourage you. There are tons of budget friendly options that don’t sacrifice quality. You can find great deals at drugs stores, Sephora and even online. Currently, I am using the 32 piece brush set from MyMakeupBrush, which they sent me for review about three months ago. Since I have been using it religiously, especially while traveling. The set is on sale for $32.99 right now. Which gets me to the next topic: Quality. That’s the big concern right? Will they work and will they last? Well after three months of using the brushes everyday I will say so far they have delivered. Along with the sleek design the bristles are soft and they don’t lose any hair, which is a huge win. The brushes are also synthetic, which means they don’t absorb liquid or cream foundations. For animals lovers – they are cruelty free. This 32 piece set has all the brushes you would need to achieve any desired makeup look in fact, the makeup in my last blog post (which you can see here) was done using this set.
