In July, my husband and I spent a week exploring the South of Iceland for our belated honeymoon. I dreamed of visiting Iceland for years, and it was everything I had imagined and more. With environmental sustainability at the heart of its culture, Iceland is an absolute dream for the eco-conscious traveler!
Thrifting — it's one of the most sustainable ways to shop for clothes, and if you're lucky, you can score some really awesome and often one-of-a-kind pieces. I've been following "thrift junky" Brandi of Run Style Run on Instagram for quite a while now, so when she reached out to me to help spread the word about her Instagram shop, Stylish Treasures, I was absolutely thrilled (and honestly geeked out a bit)!
Before we even began planning our honeymoon, I've always dreamed of visiting the famous volcanic black sand beaches of Iceland. Unlike the shell covered beaches we're used to in the U.S., these unique coastlines are formed from lava and covered in ... you guessed it ... lava rocks. On the last day of our week-long journey, my dreams finally came true.
The official start of summer is just around the corner, which means shorts weather has arrived! This will be our first New York summer, and I couldn't be more excited. Since living in Syracuse, we've somehow managed to always skip town right as the snow finally melts and the flowers begin to bloom. To make up for lost time, my husband and I have been basking in all that summer in the Northeast has to offer — rooftop hangs with friends, weekend exploring, and soaking up some good ol' sunshine.
