September is here, Fall is fast approaching, and our foreseeable beach days are dwindling. I like to take this time to spend as much time outdoors; picnicking on the beach, wandering through the city streets, taking top down road trips upstate, and enjoying the parks in my neighborhood. However as the seasons change, so too does my beauty routine. What worked for me at the beginning of summer has changed along with my skin. So here are my top beauty picks for an end of season beach vacation.
While I thoroughly recommend spending as much time as possible in Santorini, sometimes all you have is the option of one day. If you find yourself island hopping throughout Greece, here is your itinerary for exploring Oia, on the island of Santorini.
- Swimming in Amoudi Bay
Start your day with a cool dip in Amoudi Bay. The walk down to the water will leave you hot and sweaty and ready to enjoy all that Santorini has to offer-including a cliff dive! The path to the bay is a bit tricky, with a rocky path and narrow drops, but it makes the arrival all the more enjoyable as you take in the rising volcanic cliffs from below.
New York is a wonderful city, teeming with energy and ideas. However, there are times (particularly after a long, bone-chilling winter) that one needs to escape and refresh. With no time for a true getaway, I opted for the next best thing: a visit to my sister’s Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook.
One of my favorite things to happen during a trip is an unexpected stopover. While I used to plan out my trips so aggressively that I had a detailed itinerary for every minute away, I now have a loose idea of where I want to go, and try to just be in the moment. If I like a city more than I expected, I have the time to extend my stay there. If someplace is not living up to its hype, than I have no issues leaving sooner. However, there are those wonderful moments when you discover a place you did not even know existed, and your trip changes its entire course.
