During my first visit to Folegandros, I was blessed to have Anemi Hotel host us & what a beautiful stay it was! Much like the rest of the island, the ambiance of this boutique hotel is calm, quiet, and laid back. Folegandros is unspoiled in that it hasn’t been overrun by tourists or commercialized over-development like some of the other Cycladic Islands (ie Santorini). To maintain the natural beauty of the village of Karavostasis, Anemi hotel is limited to two stories throughout the property to stylishly blend into its surroundings. Anemi is a member of Design Hotels which has 250 hotels all over the world; they’re known for their service, care, and gorgeous aesthetic quality. Traditional architecture meets modern Greek lines at Anemi hotel with its whitewashed Cycladic style walls and rounded corners that we all think of when we imagine the Greek islands. I really loved the way the designers married traditional and contemporary; we enjoyed our breakfast every morning by Anemi’s infinity pool and if you have even an ounce of photography interest in you – you’ll be obsessed with the lines all over the property! Even our room was perfect, I can’t even imagine the bigger suites! Our room was pristine all white. It was so hard to not be in an incredible mood all the time when everything is sparkling and bright.
Anemi is truly self-sufficient if you’re looking to just check-out and relax at the hotel throughout your stay. Their restaurant is known as one of the best on the Island and there is more than enough for children and families to do together: open air cinema for a movie night, tennis courts, playground, yoga, fitness centre, pilates, etc. If you do plan to explore the island a bit and rent a car like we did, there is free on-site parking as well! Anemi is just a minute from the port and the staff was extremely helpful with pickup/dropoff. I was being over-responsible about getting to the port on time on our last day but they assured me that they’d take us when the ferry was near as they kept an eye on its ETA for us!
The staff and service were absolutely fantastic, the hotel manager regularly stopped to chat with us and make sure we were doing well. Any time we needed anything, the front desk was just a phone call away.
Thank you Anemi Hotel for the unbelievably lovely stay & to SeaJets for getting us there! Enjoy the photos (such eye candy!!!), all my outfit details are at the bottom!… View Post
After spending a few days in Athens, & then Folegandros, I am finishing my Greece tour at my namesake Island of Santorini (named for Saint Irene). I wanted to do style post on the blog daily.. but what might sound great in theory doesn’t always work in execution lol! I have a ton of content on the way but I do have a couple photos of my outfit from today ready for you!! The photo above is probably my favorite photo I’ve ever taken of myself, yay! I cannot take all of the credit though, the most flattering lighting in the world exists in Santorini in my opinion. I wish I could bottle it up and take it with me!
I’m really going to miss the beautiful light in Greece, not only is the environment so picture perfect.. I feel like everyone’s so photogenic in it too! I absolutely love this set of photos I took of myself this morning after breakfast @ Anemi Hotel in Folegandros. I finally put a little bit of effort into my hair and makeup so I got to take it easy in this breezy maxi dress. The blue & white paisley print is so perfect for a Greek holiday! This dress (& everything sitewide @ boohoo) is 50% off for another 12 hours!
I am so sorry for being so MIA on the blog! This summer has been so busy with travels and projects on my other platforms (like YT & IG!), I’ve totally been ignoring my blog-fam – wah! I can’t, or rather shouldn’t, complain about being busy but I can honestly say that I’m pooped! I’m laying in my stark-white room at Anemi Hotel getting ready to turn in for the night but I wanted to share with you my outfit from today. I’m currently on a press-trip in Greece. After a couple days in Athens, today was our first day in Folegandros – a little island in the Cyclades. It’s my first time on the island and its so gorgeous! I can’t wait to share my travels with you, but in the meantime.. my outfits will have to do, :)
I love that off the shoulder has been back in full force all summer, & I’ve been rocking it all season. When I saw this little embroidered dress I thought it was so perfect for this trip and just had to have it! I’ve been loving the trending wicker basket bags as well!! Mine isn’t quite a basket but its beautifully woven; I bought it in Bali earlier this summer. If I wasn’t so sick leading up to my trip I could have taken my time putting outfits together a little better – I think a brown belt would compliment this entire look so well but I am totally accessory-less! I literally just threw all of my new clothes into a suitcase a few hours before my flight lol! Luckily, I think this is still a perfect look for this laid-back traditional island.
Happy Friday and happy kickoff to the Summer 2016 Olympics! Photos of Rio have been flooding my feeds and I’ve been feeling all these pangs of nostalgia. We traveled to Rio de Janeiro almost a year ago and I know I know… I still haven’t posted anything here on the blog. Remember that hard-drive crash I had awhile back? Yup, lost all of my Brazil videos and photos, welp! I spent this afternoon scraping up whatever I could from our trip – photos from my and Waseem’s instagrams & for some reason Lightroom had some decently sized thumbnails saved, no original files though :( I screenshotted and fixed up what ever I could so please don’t judge me for the quality of these photos. I just wanted to live vicariously as I’m watching the opening ceremony on TV now! Enjoy the throwback!… View Post
