BEAUTY TALK: new york beauty buys.

NYC Beauty Buys: Sephora & Glossier Showroom | Bikinis & Passports

The great thing about New York? They have Sephora stores at every corner! The great thing about having a beauty obsessed best friend? You don’t have to do any research on what to get – she’s got you covered! Needless to say, Kathi and I stopped into Sephora during our short trip to NYC and brought back a little something. I didn’t go crazy but made sure to only buy things I can’t get in Vienna….

CRAVINGS: baby blue.

Spring Outfit Inspiration Baby Blue - Bikinis & Passports

When Mondays feel like Sundays thanks to the long Easter weekend, my Sunday Cravings also turn into Monday Cravings. Because quite frankly, yesterday I was busy spending time with loved ones while eating too much chocolate cake.

It doesn’t get much better than kicking-off the week with a public holiday, if you ask me. No emails, no errands to run, just PJs and the couch all day. And with “couch” I mean online-shopping, duh!…
