Travel Guide & Thoughts: Greece

Yeah I'm still talking about Greece.  Who's counting?

My sister made fun of me for posting the "eighth" (it was the third) photo of me by the infinity pool at the Chromata in Santorini -- Just let me live!

I couldn't not do a travel guide and roundup of some thoughts from my trip to Greece, and I've had tons of people ask about the country, food, culture, hotels, etc.

Paradise at Chromata Santorini

I'm finally getting back into the groove of my home routine, working out, and not eating an ice cream cone every day...ok, maybe twice a day sometimes.  I was on vacation, ok?

Chromata Santorini Resorts

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen the millions of photos I posted while in Greece.

Putting the beauty of the country and the islands into words is almost impossible.  You know the photos: crisp white buildings, blue water, and hotels that look like they were built in a photo editing app.  It just doesn't look real.

Well, it is.  And you have to add a trip to Greece to your bucket list.  Grab your best friend, girlfriend,  boyfriend, dog, fiancĂ©, whoever's down to travel, and GO!

I wasn't sure where to start when it came to planning this trip -- I just knew I wanted to get to Greece, so my girlfriend and I booked the tickets first, checked that off the list, and moved on to hotels.  We stayed on the phone until 2 AM for days scanning through hundreds of TripAdvisor and Yelp reviews -- It was overwhelming.

Knowing the trip could suck me dry if I stayed in a resort the whole time, I dedicated two nights to be a little bougie.

I wanted the full resort experience, gorgeous pools, amazing breakfast (priority), flawless rooms, the whole shabang.

I sorted through handfuls of resorts, some crazy price tags, and finally decided on Chromata.  And damn, am I glad we chose it!

Best Resorts in Greece

Chromata is in the Imerovigli village of Santorini, so it's not the hustle and bustle of the city and is a little more relaxing.  We arrived to a bottle of white wine (perfect to pair with our Oreo Milka), a basket of fresh fruit, and the most perfect hotel room I've seen.

The rooms are almost cave-like, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't dance around like a little kid pretending to be in a cave when we first walked in.

Luxury Resorts Santorini

Chromata Santorini

I set up their iPod on their speakers, put on some super sexy electronica, and prepped myself for the most epic Grecian tan.

The beds were comfy, shower was incredible, bathroom on point, and the staff was A+.  We were always hooked up when we needed major assistance with directions, had reservations booked, a sunset cruise reserved, ATVs rented, all with zero trouble.

OK, my favorite part: The infinity pool.  And the buffet breakfast.

Infinity Pool Resorts Santorini

This pool is insane.  It's the kind of pool you see in photos online and wonder what it'd look like in person.  It overlooks the island of Santorini, and you can see cruise ships, yachts, and all kinds of luxury boats pull up to the coast.  I wish I could've taken a picture with my eyes.

The view from the infinity pool is hands-down the most beautiful sight I've seen in my life.  Going to take a lot to take its place.

Santorini Sunset

If a trip to Santorini is in your future or you're looking for a place to stay, don't sleep on Chromata.

I mean, sleep at Chromata, but don't pass up this beautiful resort.  Tell them I sent you, and pop some bubbly for me and eat a chocolate croissant or five.

Travel Guide: Israel 2017

Ah, what a whirlwind.

How is it that we always build up the anticipation for trips, look forward to them for months at a time, and then they're over in the blink of an eye?  My flights felt longer than the trip itself -- I mean, they came pretty damn close.

I mentioned in a couple posts back that I would be doing some summer travel, and I am just now recuperating from the journey.  Being a tourist is exhausting.

Birthright Israel Guide

I traveled to Israel and Greece for about 20 days.  My trip to Israel was through Birthright -- For those of you who are unfamiliar, Birthright is essentially a trip for young adults with Jewish heritage between the ages of 18-26.  You'll join a group of others to fly to Tel Aviv and explore the country in 10 days.  I highly, highly recommend this trip for any of you who are interested and able to go.

Focus On You

Well this entire week flew by!  I swear, I can't keep track of what day, month, or even year it is half the time.  Somehow we're already in June, it's hot as hell in Houston, and he mosquitoes are back with a vengeance.

Let's talk quickly about settling.  I'd really like to film a video with a friend talking about this in detail in all aspects of life, but today I'll just talk about settling with yourself.  Not settling in a relationship, with somebody else, or with something else, but with you and only you.

Memorial Day Sales

OK, y'all.  Let me set something straight before I rattle off this weekend's best sales and potentially tempt you to spend some money.

I'm trying my best to save for my upcoming trips in June, so being completely honest and truthful, I won't be shopping these.  I might have finally purchased the pair of Vans I've been wanting, but it was a practical purchase - You know, to walk around outside and what not.

Bikini Sales

My thing lately has been shopping from swimsuits.  Pacsun has hands-down been my favorite to shop for bikinis -- They have a HUGE selection and are all reasonably priced.  This one from LA Hearts is the perfect taupe-y pink color and looks bomb with a tan.  And yes, they're having a BOGO sale, so get on it!

If you're on the hunt for any specific pieces, need some summer outfits, or are shopping for some new workwear, now's the time to do it.  There are so many great sales right now that it's almost overwhelming.

When doing these sale guides, I only link stores that I typically shop myself.  There are so many other Memorial Day Sales happening, but these are the places that you'll find me browsing myself.

Hopefully this helps to have them all in one place -- Let me know if you end up shopping any and what you got!

ASOS - 20% off everything with code 'LIT20'
Banana Republic - 40% off with code 'BRSUMMER' (best place for corporate/work clothes!)
Forever 21 - Extra 30% off sale with code 'EXTRA30'
Nordstrom - 40% off half year sale (no code) - This is my favorite sale happening and I'm eyeing the below hard:

Nordstrom Rack- Extra 25% off clearance
Old Navy - All tees, tanks, & swim 50% off
Pacsun - BOGO 50% off
Urban Outfitters - Up to 50% off select items

K I'm going to attempt and X out of all of these tabs for now and say no to lust.
