warning: i’m trying to clean out my camera in real time these days, so the next few posts will be greece-heavy. these are some shots from my digital camera (not iPhone).
greece was actually more beautiful than i ever expected.
after the busy streets of santorini, we jumped on a ferry to the sleepy yet gorgeous island of folegandros. the main town, chora, was so picturesque that i felt we were in a movie. almost everyone we interacted with was european, and there was no cruise ship in sight.
as i mentioned in my last post, the food in santorini was incredible. i don’t eat meat, but i heard the meat and the fish were very fresh and flavorful.
i personally found it pretty easy to eat as a vegetarian. in fact, everything pictured here except the last dish was vegetarian. my favorite was the feta wrapped in phyllo drizzled in honey.
we are in the tail end of an amazing trip in the greek isles, and we started our way through in santorini. the views, the food, the people, and the architecture were simply stunning. i can see why santorini is such a popular honeymoon location, and i feel very lucky that we were able to spend 3 days there.
greetings from santorini! i can’t wait to share my pictures when i am back. in the meantime, here is a shot of my new globetrotter suitcase that is accompanying me on this trip.
after years of stashing my jewelry in various pouches and boxes, i invested in this beautiful smythson jewelry box from shop ual.
my favorite part is that the top covered tray is meant to be portable and used for travel. it helps keep in me organized while make sure my jewelry is protected.
the last bit of my london shopping included these two classics. first, the louis vuitton train case is something i have had my eye on. i’ve seen people use it for home decor, for travel, and some even as a bag. i’m afraid to ruin its pristine condition so it is currently sitting out on display. once i get over that though, i think it will be a great companion for my travels.
second, i have had an hermes scarf on my list for so long but never took the plunge. that was, however, until i saw this stunner of a pattern.
i was playing around with the scarf and realized that i could fashion it into a bag, reminiscent of this one that i love but this is way too expensive for that it is.
i’ve always had a soft spot for chanel costume jewelry, and i invested in a few key pieces while i was in london. the necklace is more subdued that i would have expected to choose, but the station style is perfect for work and going out.
