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. ❊❊❊

G'BYE SOPHoMORE YEAR

I am still in disbelief that I am halfway finished with college... like what! Sophomore was more than I could have ever imagined, in the best way. I met some of my best friends and just some people that left lasting impacts on my life. The year was spent living in my sorority house, which was quite the time! As annoying as it got living with 35 or so girls and sharing a bathroom with 5 other girls, I will miss waking up to my best friends and be having so many closets to swap with. The biggest kicker of the year was my older sister GRADUATING! I cannot imagine Carolina without her, but also cannot wait to see what her future holds.

LIFE UPDATE + FORMAL 2018

Helloooo everybody! It has been very sad for me not to be able to put as much attention and effort into my blog over the past few months, but it was honestly much needed so that I could focus on it when I knew I really had the time, aka now! This has been an extremely busy and stressful semester. I ended up rushing and pledging a co-ed professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi, which basically took over my life for a few months. We had Fashion Week for my club Fashion Board at USC which I am on exec for, and just a lot of sorority events in general. I worked the Masters Tournament in Augusta, GA (that was cool)! All the stress and time was definitely worth it though because this semester has been pretty great. I cannot believe sophomore year is coming to an end. What better way to finish it off than a fabulous formal with all of my favorite people and with my sister who is about to graduate (crazyyy)!

SPRING BREAK IN THE WINDY CITY

HOLY MOLY. It feels good to be blogging again! Honestly, this semester has taken a lot out of me, and I am busier than I have been in a long time. Being busy is no excuse for not blogging, but I simply needed some time to regroup so I could put out great content.

What a more perfect time to get back into things than Spring Break! I went to Chicago, which yes you are probably wondering why on Earth would you go to Chicago for Spring Break. I visited my friends who live here and I found a really affordable flight, I could not pass it up! I had three jam-packed days in this windy city, all thanks to my incredible tour guide and photographer, Amanda. This post is pretty long, but it's worth the read!
