Good morning and Happy Monday! How are you celebrating your Memorial day? Today I am sharing my 2 Days trip in Barcelona, Spain. Here I am going to talk about all the places that I visited as well as restaurants and shops I have tried to give you some ideas and insights if you have an upcoming trip to this beautiful city to guide you.

2 Days Trip Guide in Barcelona, SpainWhy am I saying it is only 2 days of a trip. Well we arrived Barcelona Tuesday afternoon and left early morning of Thursday. We stayed in an apartment like 4o mins away by bus from the center which is Plaza Catalunya. We could have taken the train or taxi but we wanted to see the whole city since it was the last stop for the bus.

When we arrived we just refreshed and got our stuff situated at the apartment and then we went straight to the city. They public transportation was very efficient! we did not experience any traffic and arrived at Plaza Catalunya about 3pm. From there you can actually walk to La Rambla were all the restaurants, shops, La Boqeuria (fresh produce market) and the way to the marina is there, and if you go to the opposite side you can walk to get to Casa Batllo (famous Gaudi’s masterpiece aside from the Sagrada Familia).

Day 1 we strolled La Rambla and amazed by accessibility of it to see all shops, restaurants and other attractions like museums and street performers. This place is very busy so make sure to be careful of your belongings.

She made us a very delicious seafood Paella and all ingredients were bought at La Boqueria.

At the end of the La Rambla it will take you to Maremagnum (a small mall at the center of the sea) where still you can shop and dine while enjoying the view of the sea.

Day 2 we started late around 12nn and this time we took the Barcelona City Tour Bus (29 Euro adult ticket and 16 euro for kids 4-12 free for 3 and below) so the kids won’t have to walk. It is a hop on hop off bus to see all the city attractions and here we got of to see the Sagrada Familia. Such a stunning masterpiece and we wanted to get inside but the next available opening was 7pm too bad we did not have time. The person at the entrance said we should have booked it online to save us time.

The other stops we just took pictures from the Bus. Another tip, Barcelona has a lot of beautiful beaches so if you love the beach, make sure to bring along your swimsuit, sunscreens.

We ate at Tapas Restaurant and it was good food and amazing Sangria! they were located at Plaza Catalunya and for lunch we ate at the Chipilon at the Maremagnum (the food here was ok).

As for the look I wore this flamingo blouse and paired with a pair of pants and these cute slides I got from Zara (it is cheaper to buy it here because Zara is originally from Spain). I interchange it with my toms shoes for more comfort as you know traveling requires a lot of walking when you are sight seeing.

Have a wonderful week ahead. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead.

I have always dreamed of visiting Greece specially Santorini. But I had to choose between Santorini and Mykonos. I did a little researched before I made the booking and found a lot of articles saying that Mykonos is good for family travelers. I was right about my choice even though I have not been to Santorini because our whole family really enjoyed our stay in the island.

We stayed at Flaskos Suites which I highly recommend!!! 10/10 free Hotel and airport transfer from 9am to 10pm, friendly and reliable staff, super clean, yummy breakfast, perfect pool and sea view and 5 mins walk from the beach.

Travel Diary: Mykonos, Greece Where to Stay, What to Do and Where to Eat Travel Diary: Mykonos, Greece Where to Stay, What to Do and Where to EatBeside our Hotel is the Limnios Tavern Restaurant (Greek Mykonian Flavours) and the food was amazing!! I enjoyed their stuffed mushrooms ūüôā The staff are friendly and you will have the sea view while dining.

Things we did was renting a car so we can get around the whole island. It was easy to do as our hotel contacted their recommended rent a car dealer and they fetch us from the hotel to their office so we can choose the car and when we returned the car. They also dropped us back to our hotel and it was free and very convenient.

Travel Diary: Mykonos, Greece Where to Stay, What to Do and Where to Eat We wanted to try driving the ATV’s but we have the kids with us so we just took a picture on them.

We drove around the island and when to check out the other beaches, the beautiful Mykonos town, Little Venice and the very famous Windmills. There you can find different restaurants and shops depending on your taste.

Maybe next time when our kids are older then we will visit Santorini.

I hope you find this post helpful if you are thinking of traveling to Greece.

Good morning from Maryland! Finally back from our 2 week vacation. If you have been following me on instagram¬†¬†you have seen some of my post from our trip but since we were always ot and about. I have not posted all of those outfit and travel inspiration here on the blog. Starting today you will see all the wonderful outfits and travel photos to keep you inspired and this Beach Day in Mykonos with my ¬†Perfect All Day Maxi Dress. Mykonos is best for family vacations as I have heard because I haven’t been to the most famous Santorini. In this island most beaches are close by just like this Aegios Stafenos Beach here is 5 mins away from our hotel which happens to be above the beach.

I have worn this perfect dress for sunset dinner and then went straight to the beach for some family fun with the gorgeous water and sands. it was a cloudy day but it was perfect as we all enjoyed the view, the sound of the relaxing waves. We were dancing on the beach with the kids and they started collecting some rocks which they brought back here in the US. The dress is super soft and I actually sat on it. It was also being pushed away by the breeze and I was able to feel its softness on my skin. This is definitely one that you would want to wear when you are out on a sunny day too. You will love the fabric!

I hope I was able to give you some inspirations today and was able to put some smile on your face. Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by. Just let me know if you have any questions or any suggestions on what you want to see me post.

Boungiurno from Italy! I do apologize for not posting consistently this week and last week and you all know. We are on our family trip here in Europe and we are always out and about and when we are staying in the hotel or our relatives house. We catch up with each other so I really coudn’t keep up.

Today, I am sharing our trip to Mykonos Town last week. This is a very small town but it is so pretty as you can see in the pictures. Here you can find different restaurants, shopping places both high end and low. You will get to see the famous picture perfect view of the sea and the windmills.

Our family really enjoyed strolling around here. We rented a car as our hotel is few miles away from here. I liked it that way and will tell you why when I post about our hotel and why I chose to book  it.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you in my next post next week.

It was indeed a pool day in Mykonos even though the weather was a little cold. Once we were dipped in the pool it was nothing. As long as we are under the gorgeous sun! The kids and the whole family was so happy because we were able to swim. If you have been following me you know we do love to be in the pool or beach. This pool in our hotel here was the perfect spot with a gorgeous view. It was so deep though so Adi was only able to swim on the side so she can grab the edge of the pool. While Aidan, I am glad I brought his life vest then we did not have to worry about him.

As for the kids swimsuit, it was all from Gymboree and mine is from HM. I was looking for a bikini set but was not confident enough to show my tummy so I opted to wear this high waisted bikini. I love it so much!!! I know you will too and I am also excited to wear my other swimsuit. Stay tuned on that one as it is something I haven’t worn before.

Why did we choose to visit Verona? I have watched the movie Letters to Juliet and I was amazed by the beauty of the location. That is why I asked our relatives in Italy to give us a tour of that city. When in Verona, Italy we went to visit The Piazza Delle Erbe, Piazza Bra, Casa de Giulietta, Torre dei Lamberti, if we have arrived earlier we would have seen more and here is the link to all other beautiful places to see, it was 2 hours away from Modena, Italy were we were staying.

As for the outfit I chose to wear this chic and comfy red top paired with jeans and this very comfy pair of laced up shoes.

Have a nice day and thank you for stopping by.

Caio from Italy! Sharing our first day trip here to one of my favorite countries. A day at Cinque Terre is very relaxing even though it was a quick day trip. I just wanna say thank you to all my husband relatives here. They were the ones who always being our tour guide, free board and lodging and everything!! I thank them for their time as this will be hard to do for our family to travel with kids if we have to do this by ourselves. Specially travelling with kids on a budget ūüôā

We are staying in Modena, which is a 2 hour drive to Cinque Terre,  the drive was a little scary as we were on the mountain cliff but next to the beautiful view. The parking attendant at Cinque Terre suggested to take the train because it is easier and safer . As for the outfit, It was a little chilly so I decided to wear this ruffled long sleeve style and wore the comfiest flat shoes.

I hope I inspired you with this post. Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!

Happy Monday! I was asked by Stylewe to review their products for them. I always would like to try new products to help you all and give some insights about it. I was asked to try 2 clothes from their site and this black star wrap dress is rthe one I chose to pick and the second dress I will show you guys on the next blog post I was not able to take pictures of both at the same time.

Quality of the Dress:

The material is good, I did not see any damage and it is soft.

Size:

The dress is true to size as I got it perfectly fit for me. They have a size guide which is accurate I should say.

Price:

This one I must say is over priced for the quality of the dress.

Shipping:

It took 10 days for the item to arrive which is not bad.

Packaging:

Good packaging and has a proper label, size and tag

Overall:

The dress style, size and shipping is good but the price is high for the dress. I will wait for the price to drop for this one.

I hope I was able to give some honest review for you guys if in case you have been wanting to try this brand. Please wait for the next review on the blog from Stylewe.

Thank you for stopping by and may all of you have a wonderful weekend.
