You never really realize how fast time goes by until you stop and think about it. Yesterday – April 21 – I officially made 1-year since I moved to Bulgaria! Celebrating my move was very important to me because it was a milestone I didn’t think I would reach. I can’t believe that it has been that long and how it only seems like yesterday that I decided to take on this journey. I really don’t know what my expectations were in the beginning, but I am very glad that I made this decision despite the struggles here and there.
I have mentioned it before and I will start off this blog post with it again – I have a passion for traveling. I haven’t been on a plane since the end of December when I went home for the holidays (to America). Aside from going home, the last country I visited was Spain in October and I am itching to get back on the move. I love exploring new places, traveling, learning about new cultures, and sightseeing which is why I have compiled my top 10 dream travel destinations. Even though I enjoy traveling alone, I am ALWAYS looking for travel buddies (serious ones) – so if you are interested, let me know.
It’s mid-April already and that means that both graduation and summer are right around the corner. What better time to share some of my favorite white dress finds? White is sort of the go-to option for girls to wear for their graduation – some schools might make it a requirement while others don’t. White dresses are also super cute to wear in the summertime AND you can’t deny that they look even better with a tan, so why not get some? All of my finds are budget-friendly because if you are in college, chances are you are looking to save a few bucks and if you’re not, you can still benefit from these affordable options!
If you haven’t read one of my first blog posts (10 things about me) or you are new to my blog (hello and welcome) OR you simply don’t know me on a personal level, you may not know that I have a twin sister. That’s right, we look alike, think alike, act alike, and yes – we do have our own “twin language”. Well, while I moved to the other side of the world, she stayed in America and we are now farther away from each other than ever before. Keep reading to find out how that’s going for us…
With many people on Spring Break or simply planning vacations in the near future due to the warmer weather, I decided to write a blog on how to pack for a trip with just a carry on bag! Living in Europe means that I have easy access to many different countries that are only a few short hours away. That means that weekend getaways/short vacays are possible – A.K.A. no need for a huge suitcase. Packing for a trip with a carry on may seem like you are limiting yourself, but not when you do it right.
Earlier this week, I uploaded a blog post about my latest Spring/Summer Clothing Haul to show you guys what I bought from some of my favorite stores. I didn’t get much, but I definitely got a head start on finding some clothes for the warmer seasons! In this post, I am going to give you 6 simple spring/summer outfit ideas incorporating the same pieces that I picked up! I will link the same items in case you missed it along with some other staple clothing items that you may be interested in!
I don’t just like shopping, I also find it really exciting which is why I want to share with you all a few of my spring/summer items that I picked up last week. In this spring/summer clothing haul, you will see items from Zara, H&M, Mohito, and online at AJ Voyage – I will try to link as close to the items as possible so you can shop them yourself if you are interested!
Many people walk into their local drug stores simply to stare at the variety of skin care options and wonder what to purchase or what will work. I have to admit; it is a hard decision to make – until you learn what actually works for you. Everyone’s skin type is different and it can change on its own (like mine did), but I am going to share with you what facial skincare routine works for me at the moment and which products I recommend!
It’s officially Springtime which means that traveling season is upon us! More and more people travel during the warmer seasons like Spring and Summer so if you are planning a trip, you have to know what to bring with you! I don’t just mean your suitcase full of clothes and your toothbrush. I’m going to show you some of my must-have travel essentials for almost every kind of trip! Generally, these items will fit in my small/medium over the shoulder bag, tote, or a carry-on suitcase – depending on what you need/where you are going. Hopefully, it will help you plan for your upcoming trip!
If you’re like me, you love the idea of brunch and having a place to go eat a mix of breakfast and lunch foods on a Saturday or Sunday mid-morning/afternoon. When I was in America, brunch was my favorite thing to do on the weekends so when I moved to Bulgaria, I had to find the best places to go. The average Bulgarian will probably eat breakfast at home or maybe grab something quick from a bakery while on the go. However, more and more restaurants are starting to add brunch options to their menus! Here is what I was able to locate for brunch in Varna!
