Travel – Malta in April, a Family Travel YouTube Video

In April, we traveled to the stunning island of Malta for both work and family vacation time. We first stayed in Valletta, where we explored for 3 days. We then visited the beautiful city of Birgu, and the island of Gozo to see the remains of the once “Azure Window” and the stunning Wied il Ghasri. We also visited the awesome Playmobil factory and fun park in the town of Birzebbuga. Parents of kiddos, this place is a MUST when visiting Malta!

We moved to Sliema for the remainder of our trip and stayed at the Palace Hotel (stunning views), and took small trips throughout the city and just beyond, while there. One of the more awe-inspiring destinations was Mdina, which is also known as the “Silent City” . We loved wandering through the quiet streets, spotting sites that were filmed for Game of Thrones, and just enjoying the architecture. Malta was rich in history, rich in kindness, and rich in beauty. We will definitely be back!

So you’re going to Egypt. What to pack, a conservative adventure in the summer.

What to pack for Egypt in the Summer? I’ve got you covered…….. LITERALLY! šŸ˜‰

My very dear friend and most trusted makeup artist, Meagan is an avid traveler and adventurer. To say her passport gives me travel envy would be an understatement! She recently booked an August trip to Egypt and asked me to help her build a very conservative capsule wardrobe to pack for her trip. Not much skin can show, so I had to be very aware of lengths and necklines. Not to mention having to be smart about fabrics, for breathability in the very high heat!

Her palette is Olive, Black, Khaki, and White with pops of color through accessories for some flare! SO, here we go…..

This pair of olive harems is HER first find, and we are building from here… love these!!

I had so much fun putting these options together for her nine day trip to Egypt this August! Take some, leave some, and build your own collection from these options. This wardrobe could truly work for any trip, or general day to day! I love the muted neutral tones and pops of color throughout the accessories! Speaking of accessories, you’ll notice all of these beauties are from Stella & Dot which has been my very favorite one stop for jewelry and accessories for quite some time! I just decided to be a stylist so if you need anything, just ask! I won’t usually be solely pushing one brand as I love so many, but I knew these pieces would be great for this collection!

Are YOU going anywhere fun this summer??? I’d love to hear about your trip in the comments below! <3, Lisa

Travel – Malta Family Vacation Part One

Travel – Malta Family Vacation Part One

Malta. You know all about Malta, right? And you can totally find it on a map I bet!

I will be the first to admit that while I had definitely heard of it (that counts, right?) I honestly had no idea where Malta was or what Malta looked like! It wasn’t until months ago that I started doing research on this lovely little island, and I’m so glad I did. Did you know that they filmed Game of Thrones in Malta? More on that in a later blog…

This was D’s 2nd trip there in 2 months (lucky butt), and this time we were adamant about tagging along and extending his work trip, and extra thanks go out to his awesome Boss man for letting us make this work!!! We really enjoyed getting to spend some time as a group of 4, in between meetings, the first few days we were there.

Here are some of my favorite captures in the first few days while in the capital city of Valletta! And be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the continuing series!
