Ahhh… Mykonos, the “party island”. And I do mean party! But Mykonos is also known for its fabulous beaches as it’s less cliffy than Santorini. The shopping is amazing from Designer shops like Louis Vuitton and Chanel to locals selling their wares. There’s even a Sephora! But there is definitely a lot more to this fabulous island. What is fun about Mykonos is that there is a lot more hustle and bustle, particularly in Mykonos Town, like Old Port and Little Venice. The beaches here have soft, golden sand, but can be very crowded in July and August. And beware of the cost of chaise lounge rentals ranging from $30.00 to $80.00 USD to rent a chair!
It’s easier to get around Mykonos because most of the attractions are all closer to each other, such as the old port and the popular beaches. Public buses are the best way to get around costing approximate $2.00 to any destination. The buses area very nice like charter buses so they are very comfortable. You can rent scooter and atvs if you are adventurous. I have to say that a lot of hotels near Mykonos town are situated high and require walking once the bus drops you off as buses cannot go up the narrow road leading to your fabulous hotel. I recommend taxis if you are not fit, older or too drunk or tired to walk the hill. Continue reading
Greece was everything I had imagined. It was as beautiful as every picture I saw on Pinterest when doing my research on these wonderful islands. I have to admit that Greece is now my most favorite place to be in the world! I honestly became very aware of who I am as a woman and Santorini took me to a mind altering state which only underscored what it is I REALLY want in my life.
The islands of Greece are a rugged type of beauty, full of rocky cliffs, breath-taking sights, and winding roads and paths. My friend recommended visiting Crete next time, the largest island in Greece. She also mentioned that anyone visiting the island might be interested in renting a vehicle for their holiday from somewhere like rental-center-crete.com, car hire allows you to explore the island at your own pace! If you do choose to visit the Greek islands, you’ll be happy to know the people are friendly, the food is delicious, and the lifestyle on the islands is different than anything I have yet experienced. As a brown girl, I was made to feel very welcome as I suspect they know the plight of brown girls here in the USA. We are special there. We get stares admiring our beauty, our exoticness. The moment you smile back, like opening your arms, the Greeks become your best friend!
So I traveled with my younger beautiful cousin to these beautiful islands to both Santorini and Mykonos, and I will state right off the cuff that the islands are distinct in many ways but equally as beautiful. They are both very different in their vibes, culture, and lifestyle.Continue reading

The stores and internet are filled with beautiful inspiration, but there’s only one problem: You don’t have a ton of money to spend on fall decorating. Here are some great ways to decorate for fall and embrace autumn interior design trends on a budget.
Getting back to your hustle and grind after a fabulous vacation!
As an American, you could potentially spend the rest of your life on vacation and still make a good living. But the truth is, few of us actually do this. Instead, we work hard, take time off when we can, and then return to work to tell the tales of our adventure to all.
So here’s some advice on a smooth transition from cocktails on the beach to the rat race!!
Endorphins the Happy Hormone
Endorphins are natural hormones that your brain releases when it senses happiness. These endorphins give you a sense of happiness, satisfaction and well-being; they tell you all is well with your body. http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/13/health/endorphins-exercise-cause-happiness/index.html
It’s that relaxed sense after a good meal, a good workout, a good laugh or great sex. Endorphins are produced in the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus gland and release an opioid-like secretion that masks pain with a natural analgesic and tells the body that all is fine with the world. Woohoo!
The art of being happy seems to be a fleeting thing to some people; others seem to have a good grasp on it and seem to be able to hang on for dear life! Happiness means different things to different people, but there are similarities that have led scientists to believe that there is much people can do to assist themselves in their personal pursuit of happiness. I know the methods of hapiness here truly work! Try it ! https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-12605/6-ways-to-create-your-own-happiness.html
Most people who are truly happy have a true sense of purpose in their life. What is your passion and are you living it? Are you doing what you love and loving what you do? For many people, faith in God brings them happiness, hope for the future and a sense of purpose. Happy people generally are giving people; giving truly does bring the giver joy, if it’s done with a real attitude of giving for the sake of giving.

Fitness is a Way of Life! Working out is a great way to feel good and look good ! So.. how do you get inspired to get that fit body? SET GOALS!!! I set goals and then I achieve them! You have to know exactly what you are going for. Sure you want to lose weight and gain some muscle but you feel like you have no direction. How do you keep on track?
Let me make a prediction… 96.8% of my subscribers who actually are reading this have wished they had more passion in the gym. And a full 99% of those still reading, do not have their goals written down anywhere. Why is motivation so difficult? Why is the #1 question I receive from somebody who asks, “I know what to do, but I just need somebody to motivate me to do it all year round.”
Not only are these foods healthy but they can turn a blah night into a sexy night. Every aspect of a food – its color, shape, scent and texture – can make it sexy. In addition, certain foods contain substances that make us feel good by interacting with our hormones or stimulating our brain. Consider incorporating some of the following into your next candlelight dinner to help you and your partner get in the mood and have super sex, especially while you possibly include an adult film from somewhere like www.tubev.sex to get you and your partner feeling really spicy.
