GLOSSIER GALORE

I am pretty sure everyone is obsessed with Glossier's Instagram and aesthetic. They keep millennial pink at the heart of everything they post, but that's because millennial or now, "glossier", pink is their iconic brand's color and identity. I really love their platform of "skincare first. makeup second". For someone who has had pretty crappy skin most of my life, I applaud Glossier for not advertising makeup to cover up all your blemishes, but rather enhance your natural skin to the best it can look. In New York, the number one thing I wanted to do was go to the Glossier showroom. Since Glossier is pretty much only online, I really wanted to be able to touch and test the new products I was considering getting! Needless to say, the showroom, products, and employees did not disappoint. Today I am giving you a roundup of all the Glossier products I've tried and which are my favorites!

I'm sure a lot of you are wondering what even is my internship and who am I interning for. This post will break down where I work and what I do!

PAROS, GREECE

Every two-ish days we bopped from island to island, so last but not least, Paros! Paros is like Mykonos 30 years ago. Stone grounds, windmills, and white buildings everywhere. This island is full of beautiful nooks and crannies.

SANTORINI, GREECE


Aaaah, Santorini... the place most people think of when Greece comes to mind. Probably the top island on everyone's Grecian bucket list. So, it was obviously on ours too! Santorini is no doubt beautiful,  breathtaking views in an abyss of blue and white. It was our second island of the trip, but not quite the best place for that relaxing vacation.

MILOS, GREECE

AHHH, the oh so anticipated Greece trip is here. We have been here for over a week now, and it has been an interesting time. We started our trip with no luggage, slowly getting more bags as the trip went on, but my sister and I did not get our bag with all our clothes until 4 days in! It was ridiculous, and it wasn't just us, it happened to a lot of people. Thanks, AirFrance!!
We started our vacation on the island of Milos, one of the less popular Grecian islands (tourist-wise), but it was incredible. I can already tell you, Milos was the highlight of our trip for everyone! Even though we did not have much luggage at the time, it didn't take away from enjoying the island. I think one reason we really enjoyed it was that there were not a lot of tourists, it was not very busy, and we were able to slow it down a bit, as compared to Athens or even Santorini. I should also mention that we are only spending two days on each island, not a lot of time at all! We have packed a lot in.

❊ MY SUMMER MAKEUP ROUTINE ❊

I asked on an Instagram poll (PAUSE, if you aren't following me on insta GO: @thelifeofjojo_) if y'all would like to see my summer makeup routine and basically, everyone said yes! So here we are. Don't get me wrong, I do love a classic full glam look, but this time of year, I like it more natural and lighter! Summer makeup is also all about being quick and easy, you want to be able to throw something on and run out the door looking effortless and sun-kissed. ❊❊❊
