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.


santorini food

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.

santorini snapshots

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.


jewelry box

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.

london classics

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.
