the lazy girls’ guide to navigating a new city in a time crunch

When it comes to travel, we have many varied areas of expertise. What cultural stuff can you skip in favor of eating your way through any given European capital city? We’re your girls. What IS the right amount of red wine to drink on an overnight flight so you don’t arrive looking like a zombie from the depths of hell? You call us. How do you maximize your time when navigating a new city, cramming in as much wonder as you possibly can in 18 hours or less? Ehhhh…. that is just not our style. In news that will shock no one, we don’t really like to feel pressure to sight-see . We’d rather just enjoy…

#LTgreekweek // mykonos is for insta-lovers

If you followed along on our trip to Mykonos with My Greek Villa, then you already know we had an amazing week filled with stunning views and insanely delicious food. It’s no question that Mykonos is a dream destination for foodies, honeymooners & girls’ getaways, but one thing you might not have guessed is that it’s the PERFECT place for anyone obsessed with Instagram. * raises hands * Guilty as charged. Though we’ve had our account for quite awhile, and have posted on it pretty religiously, this year took us to destinations that really helped us up our insta-game. HEART EYE EMOJIS FOR THESE COLORS.

#LTgreekweek // the lazy girls’ guide to off-season dining in mykonos

It’s no secret that we’re long-time fans of traveling during the off-season. The pace is slower, the locals are friendlier, and best of all, the prices are lower. Now that one of us is traveling with a baby, shoulder season travel is more appealing than ever. One of our favorite things? Wining and dining in Mykonos was SUPER low-key during our recent trip. This was especially welcome, since we were visiting a destination that’s also known as one of Greece’s top party islands. Mykonos and its club scene go hand-in-hand, but an October visit meant most places were closing for the year. Fortunately, friends and readers who know the island well knew just where to…

#LTgreekweek // one week in mykonos with @mygreekvilla

We can’t hate on 2016 that much. Sure, there was a LOT of bad. But, as you know, there was a lot of good, too. We’ve decided that that’s what we want to focus on. So, without further ado, let’s talk about one of our very best trips of last year. In October, we spent one week in Mykonos at My Greek-Villa‘s beautiful Villa Ellis! We had a great time with our husbands during our week-long jaunt in Northern Portugal, but sometimes, it’s nice to leave the boys at home and get away for uninterrupted girl time, ie. wine drinking, gossiping, over-eating and plenty of lounging. (Though who are we kidding, our husbands are just…

#LTgreekweek // style spotter: mykonos edition

WELL, hello, October! Fancy meeting you here! We’re back with another rousing edition of our packing dreamlilst, this time with style spotter: Mykonos edition. We must admit. We’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for this month to arrive since our planes’ wheels met the pavement post-Portugal. That’s because in just a few weeks (days, practically), we’re off on another grand adventure! That’s right… MYKONOS Yes, correct, our trip with MyGreek-Villa is just around the corner, and naturally, we’re starting to figure out what the heck we’re going to wear! As we’re going a little after peak season, we’re hoping for perfect pool weather… but nothing’s a guarantee, so we must be prepared. Unfortunately, we’re terrible at being…
