    My 6 Hour Venice Experience

    Almost 2 years ago, when I went to Kerala, Dubai/Abu Dhabi, Rome and Tuscany, I also went to Venice. The picture above is the classic view you get in Venice and it honestly was the most picturesque city I had ever been to. However, Venice is a city you can do in a few hours so on the train ride from Rome to Florence, we made a stop in Venice (bought the 7am ticket from Rome to Venice and the 7pm ticket from Venice to Florence) so we could explore the city and we still got the full experience. We left our bags at the train station- they store luggage…

    How to Sport Red, White & Blue in a Classy Way.

    Getting ready for Murica’s birthday and thinking about what to wear to that fourth of July party? It’s obvious you should wear red, white and blue, but don’t throw up in those colors or mix and match when it doesn’t look right. Make sure you add a special touch or a hint of a color here and there! Add a hint of red to your white and blue with a bold juicy red lipstick. That’s the great thing about red lipstick- there are millions of shades out there and every girl has to find the right one for her. Or add a special touch with red pumps to your cute…

    How to Walk Your Weigh Out of Exercise.

    This post is for those of you who don’t like to exercise, but want to get in some movement without doing any work throughout the day. The power of walking is endless. If you live in a walking city like NYC, Chicago, San Francisco or D.C., then you are set and don’t have to worry about how to get your 10,000 steps in per day. However, if you’re like me and live in a city that never walks (Atlanta) and it is hard to get your steps in, then this post is made for you. 1. Park in the furthest spot in the parking lot no matter where you go.…

    How to make a REAL Greek Salad.

    Remember my Santorini post? Well, just wait until my Mykonos post! When I went to Greece last year, I realized that a “Greek” salad in America is not really a Greek salad. I don’t like the soggy wrinkled lettuce and miniature foul-tasting black olives in them. So when I went to Greece I had sworn off Greek salads until one of my besties Purvi forced me to try them. Then I was OBSESSED. A Greek salad in Greece (commonly called a horiatiki salad here- remember my post?)  is made of only cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, green peppers and feta cheese plus or minus black olives and avocado’s. I eat large servings of this salad…

    New York, I Love You, XOXO III

    About 3 months ago, we went to fashion week in NYC (read all about my experience and the Asaf Ganot show here) and even though Mr. Gentlementality and my primary purpose was for fashion week, we had go to squeeze in time to go explore! As promised, here is the rest of the post from what we did- don’t forget NYC I and NYC II. We stayed a couple of extra days to explore the city (yes, in the cold). The cold wasn’t bad at all- it was the wind and the slush from the snow melting from the storm the day before that was difficult, but it still didn’t stop us…
