Hi all, Happy Easter!

So, as some of you may already know, Wayne and I have birthday’s just NINE days apart! And each year we like to do a little getaway as our “birthday presents” to one another, since traveling and experiencing new places is our favorite thing to do together!

Tonight, we’re off to San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited! We’re headed to a nine day “Cali Roadtrip,” just Wayne and I!

We’re site seeing in San Fran, drinking vino through Napa Valley, driving down the PCH and cannot wait to see Big Sur (addicted to “Big Little Lies” with Reese!), partying with amazing friends in Venice Beach / Malibu and then finishing the trip in Downtown LA! My love for California grows each and every time I visit, now just need to convince Wayne to move!!! ūüôā

I frequently get questions on what I wear on long flights, so I’ve linked my favorite travel outfit staples below! ¬†I think when you’re traveling it’s very important to have key pieces which are comfortable, layered and still fashionable!

Sweatshirt: H&M Ruffle Sweatshirt ($9.99!!!!! Trust Me you with thank me!!!)

Leggings:¬†Express Leather Scuba Leggings¬†(they stretch¬†and they’re comfy, all while giving your ‘athleisure’ look some edge!)

Jacket: Blank NYC Suede Moto Jacket (I always travel with layers, because I’m ALWAYS freezing or having a heatstroke!) ALSO: 30% OFF with code: FRIENDS¬†

Loafers: Steve Madden Jill Loafer (best Gucci Dupe I’ve seen!!!!) I can’t find the floral embroidered online with the faux fur, I just purchased them in store at Lord & Taylor for 30% OFF! Also, L&T is having their Friends & Family sale now through Tuesday, April 18, 2017. ¬† You get 30% almost everything, and 10% off cosmetics and fragrance with code: FRIENDS.¬†

Sunnies: Marc Jacobs 58mm Aviator Sunnies (30% off with code: FRIENDS)

Eye Mask: Sephora Collection Pearl Eye Mask РPerfecting & Brightening (These are heavenly, only $5, and no need to rinse afterwards. Just rub in circular motion under your eyes the remaining serum!)

Handbag: Celine Mini Luggage Black Tote (the greatest Christmas present I’ve ever received, thank you Wayne! :)) Of course you need a large tote to carry all your travel essentials!

Face Hydration: Evian mineral Water Face Spray – I love having something in my bag once I get off the flight to give my face a fresh glow! I use this throughout the day, everyday!!

See you all when I return, I’ll be posting some really good content for Spring and Summer fashion!

Xx, Creme

Addio, NYC! Ciao, Italy and Greece!

Today is the day I head on the DREAM vacation I’ve been planning for months and months, Italy and Greece here I come!¬† My three girlfriends and I leave for Rome, Italy this evening and I could not be happier!!!

It feels so surreal that today is finally here.¬† We have a itinerary full of adventure, wine, food and of course shopping!¬† After a few days in Rome, we venture to Florence to vineyard hop then head south to Positano, for 5 full days of R&R!¬† At each of these Italian cities, we’ll be staying in Air Bnb’s.¬† We got such great deals, and I am so excited to see what each Loft / Apartment / House has to offer in each place!¬† See the photos below for where we’ll be staying in each city!

After a wonderful week in Italy we’re heading east to Santorini, Greece.¬† I cannot wait to embrace Wayne after a week apart¬†and see everyone for my beautiful friend’s wedding.¬† I am so blessed to have been friends with my Cassie for the last 15 years and so excited to be a part of her and Alexis’s special day.

Our first night in this paradise will be in another Air Bnb.  We will then be in the beautiful, Oia Sunset Hotel with all of our friends to celebrate the bride and groom.  The wedding week in Santorini will be filled with ATV tours, boat cruises,  more food and drinks, and lots, and lots of laughter!

I cannot wait to share my adventure with each of you and stay tuned for pictures of my outfits and experiences in each of these beautiful European cities!
