DRUNK IN LOVE WITH DRUNK ELEPHANT

If you follow me on instagram you have probably noticed that I love using Drunk Elephant products in my skincare routines. My love with Drunk Elephant has started  back in 2019 and ever since then I have been using their products and many of them I have repurchased over and over again. I recently tried out some of their body and hair products but I will share them in a separate blog post so keep an eye for that.

There’s nothing making me more happy than working with brands that I truly love. In this post I will be reviewing all the Drunk Elephant products I’ve tried so far.

TRAVEL

After almost 3 months living in NYC area it was time for a little change of scenery. We decided to escape the cold and rainy weather of the East Coast and head to sunny California. Where we will be spending the whole of November. Last time I was in California was ages ago, so I was pretty excited to go back as well as to spend some time with the family I have there. We got on a plane from NYC and flew all the way to California.

TRAVEL

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Whenever I have nothing to do, but want to spend the day learning or discovering something new, visiting a museum is my go to activity. Thankfully New York City is a home to dozens of museums, and since I am still new there are so many museums left on my lists. This weekend I decided to visit the Solomon R. Guggenheim museum located on the Upper East Side just a couple of blocks down from the MET. And it is definitely a museum worth visiting in your lifetime.

LIFESTYLE

THE STRAND-18 MILES OF BOOKS

My love towards books and reading goes all the way back to childhood, I was that kid that didn’t need to be forced to read, I absolutely loved it. Books were my escape from reality, and you would find me reading most of them time. As a family we read a lot in general, and my grandfather has a huge home library with more than 3,000 books, so my love for book collecting comes from him for sure. Throughout the years I explored which genres I liked and which not, but in general I read everything, depending on the mood I am at. But one of my favorite past-time activities is reading, and a place I can spent hours in are bookstores. The Strand bookstore was on my visit list for a long time and this week I finally paid a visit.

TRAVEL

ROWING IN CENTRAL PARK

Central Park is probably my favorite place in NYC, for a moment you forget you are in a concrete jungle with 8 million people living there. It’s the 5th biggest park in the city, with 843 acres. In 1857, landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won a design competition for the park with their “Greensward Plan”. The building of the park began the same year and it was finished in 1876. Central Park has dozens of attractions and places to see and things to do. From taking a walk to taking a jog, picnic, horse carriage ride, read a book and so on. One of the things I really wanted to do was to rent a boat and row on the Lake.

FASHION/TRAVEL

Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams Exhibition

Wanted to visit the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition when it was showing for the first time at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. However, it was so popular that I never got the chance to get ahold of tickets. Two years from them Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition is being displayed at the Brooklyn Museumin New York. So, this time I could not miss it. I booked my tickets online, although you can buy them on the spot. My advice is to purchase them online for the specific date and time you want, just in case there is no availability at the moment, since the capacity is limited due to covid regulations.

TRAVEL

BROOKLYN BRIDGE

An idea for an afternoon activity in NYC: walking the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn by foot, grab a coffee in DUMBO, enjoy the Manhattan skyline, watch the sunsets from the pier. But, let’s get into details.
