Greece

I can’t believe a month ago I was in Greece !!
In September I spent two amazing weeks in Greece. I went with Contiki Travels. For those of you who don’t know what Contiki is, it is for people who enjoy Solo Traveling between the ages 18-35 years old. They have over 300 trips! I had gone to New York with them a couple years ago and had the time of my life!

ATHENS
We started out in Athens as you can see in the next couple of pictures below. I enjoyed the history and views!!

This bottom photo was taken from the rooftop of our Athens Hotel.

MYKONOS
We next hopped on over to Mykonos which is where I had the most time partying with my new friends and having dinners next to the ocean.

SANTORINI
Santorini was beautiful! It felt like you were walking through a movies, the views were breathtaking!

OIA, SANTORINI

IOS
The last island we went to was IOS. There were so many water activities to do on this island and I made sure to do them!

I’ve felt depressed being back home lol. Life is so different and my two weeks flew by! I can not express how important it is to take some time off from work and daily life and enjoy traveling. For me it is a de-stresses me and resets me mentally.

Healthy Summer Morning Habits/Morning Routine

Good Morning!! Today I wanted to post my morning routine more specifically for those of us who do not work from home. This is how I like to start my working mornings and it took some time for me to figure out which works best for me!

ALARM GOES OFF AT 5:30 AM!
I am not the type of person and have never been the type of person who sets multiple alarms to get up in the morning. I’ve always gotten up on the first alarm. Now with that being said, I am human at the end of the day and have had a few times where I fell right back asleep or sleep through my alarm (my body is telling me I need to rest more). Overall once my alarm goes off I’m up:

  • I turn off my alarm
  • I DO NOT GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA
  • Brush Teeth/Wash Face
  • I DO NOT TOUCH MY PHONE THE FIRST HOUR I WAKE UP
  • Drink Lemon Water or One Cup of Water/ Tea. Depending on what I’m feeling that morning I may or may not squeeze fresh lemon in my water, but I will have a cup of water before drinking my tea. I will add my Vital Proteins Collagen Powder to my tea then go on with my skin care routine.

I put on my Murad Multi-Vitamin Infusion Oil and let it sit on my face close to 5 minutes before putting on my moisturizer.

I will then turn on a Podcast whether it is a Spiritual or Self-Care one and listen to it while I do my make-up and get dressed. I usually listen to either Joyce Meyer or Kalyn’s Coffee Talk as I am getting ready. Other than turning off my alarm or turning on a podcast I do not touch my phone during the morning.
