The Annual Greek Festival at the Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church 

This past Friday, my mom and I went to the Greek Festival that is held every year at the Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church. This festival is held every year. This was our second time going and I was definitely far from disappointed!

Necklace – Earthbound Trading, Top – Express(no longer sold but similar), Shorts – TJ Maxx (similar), Shoes – Jack Rogers, Purse – Old Navy

The food was so good. I didn’t get any of the gyro wraps, because I am pescatarian. I will say that the last time we went to the festival I got a gyro wrap and it was delicious! pizza was so good as well as the fries.

After eating my pizza and fries, I got a Greek frappe. It didn’t taste anything like the Starbucks frappuccinos I am used to but it was so sweet and good! You could really taste the coffee and all of the flavors mixed into it.

After food and frappes, we went to see the inside of the church. The church looked so beautiful! I had never seen the inside of a Greek church before so this experience was very new to me but so cool.


  

So overall, I had a really great experience at the Greek Festival. If you guys are looking for some fun events to go to in your local area, I highly recommend eventbrite.com . Eventbrite is a website that helps you find fun events in your local area. It is also great for if you are looking for something to do on a vacation if you are new to the area and not sure where to go to find fun or good food. It’s a really great website. I definitely don’t live in a big city but when I searched my location tons of events came up!They also have these great event management tools that can help you plan and promote your own event!

What I’ve Been Listening To – April 2015

This month I actually did not listen to that much music so my comments on the songs and albums I did listen to will be fairly short.I’ve been listening to a lot of remixes this month.So some of the songs may seem a bit mainstream by just looking at the title but their sound is very unique.

So here are my top 3 artists for April 2015 –

Tinashe – This female singer is someone I am still very new to but I am already in love with her music and incredible voice.This remix of her song,All Hands on Deck is amazing and so fun to dance to when I’m getting ready in the morning!

Flume – This Australian artist did two great remixes that were favorites of mine all throughout this month. The remix songs that I really enjoyed were Lay Me Down by Sam Smith and Tennis Court by Lorde . The beat and instrumentals are amazing with a unique but also classic sound to them.

Zedd – I have really been enjoying 2 remixes of Selena Gomez’s I Want You To Know,both of which include Zedd. The remixes are by two different but great artists,SJUR and DEVI . They are both super fun to dance to and very well made.

So, I know this month’s post was fairly short but I do hope you enjoyed it. These are my favorite artists of April 2015. Do make sure to check out the rest of my April Playlist. Feel free to tell me what your favorite artists are at the moment in the comments section!

Spring Fashion Essentials

    Spring Fashion Essentials

Spring is finally upon us! Well, sort of. It’s still pretty cold where I live, gotta love the South!
( not -__-). The fact that I will finally be able to wear shorts and open-toed shoes again seriously excites me so much! These spring fashion essentials are what I consider to be the best and most important staples for any spring wardrobe.

Abercrombie Fitch vintage black dress – A simple floral dress is essential to any spring wardrobe. You could wear this dress casually with a jean jacket or vest with Converse and a statement necklace to something like a movie with friends or a picnic date with your boyfriend (not quite sure where you find one of those but hey if you got one). You could also dress it up a bit with some nice nude flats and a cardigan and wear it to a nice dinner date.

Lands End t shirt – A basic white t shirt is not just essential for spring but for any wardrobe. This shirt is perfect for everything from visits to the zoo to internships with big fancy shmancy social media companies like Facebook and Google! You’ll be fetching coffee for Mark Zuckerberg and organizing Sheryl Sandberg’s upcoming meetings in no time! Pair this shirt with a cardigan, pixie pants, flats, and a nice statement necklace and you’re good to go!

Tommy Hilfiger button down collar shirt – Oh, the button down. This classic preppy piece that is essential for any wardrobe literally goes with so much! It’s light, airy, and comes in such a wide variety of colors. The best thing about shirts like these is how put together they make you look. You could have just rolled out of bed half awake because you stayed up too late binge watching Gossip Girl on Netflix(I feel ya, guilty is charged) but because of your handy dandy button down paired with some cute printed shorts and Jack Rogers you will look like you just stepped straight out of a J Crew catalog!

J.Crew jean shorts – Oh, denim! The little fashion nerd in me is literally jumping with joy! Rolled up jean shorts have a certain youthful feel to them! It’s like you’re 10 again about to climb up to your tree house to play pirates with your best friend since birth!  For anything from barbecues to boat rides, these denim shorts will most definitely work!

J.Crew shorts – Chino shorts are a classic! These are super cute and very comfortable. They also come in a wide variety of colors. I always feel so classy when I wear mine!

Jack Rogers leather sandals – Now I’m pretty sure that you can already tell that I’m absolutely obsessed with these since I already mentioned them earlier. These shoes are super cute and are perfect for pretty much any occasion! Its metallic leather and classic design can dress up any outfit!

Charlotte Russe strap sandals – These gladiator sandals are great for adding a bit of edge to what would have been a very simple look.They are also very comfortable, which makes them perfect for going to a concert in! I also really like these sandals that have studs on them!

Liz Claiborne brown handbag – This cross body bag by Liz Claiborne is perfect for travel and for any busy woman who is always on the go! The color is very neutral and goes with literally anything!

Pave jewelry – This zodiac necklace from Baublebar is the perfect statement piece for  literally any occasion! I am absolutely obsessed with zodiac jewelry. I feel like it really goes with the whole bohemian vibe that is always so trendy for summer and spring!
