Getting my 'Bambi' on

Hi, my name is Kristina and I’ve become an eyelash extension addict by choice. To you who have not heard or tried my choice of ‘drug’ I will briefly explain what it is: Basically you go into a nice spa, lie down for about an hour to an hour and a half and relax on a soft bed, while an expert technician gently adds the finest and most beautiful hairs to your own eyelashes.

Mandeville Hotel London

The Mandeville Hotel in London is a great place to stay, shop and enjoy your visit in London. The hotel is centrally located near Marylebone High street and short distance from great shopping and nightlife near Selfridges and Bond street. The Tube is a few blocks away also. The hotel has great sense of style and design without breaking the budget. We highly recommend checking them out. We were very impressed with the Hotel’s classic style by leading interior decorator Stephen Ryan.

Railroad Earths Hangtown Halloween Ball 2014

Recently we went to the Hangtown Halloween Ball in “Old Hangtown” Placerville, CA. We had never been to this event or Placerville other than driving through on the way to South Lake Tahoe. I have to say that we were really impressed with the concert and the town. Placerville actually has a lot of great little shops and most everything you need, even a late night In and Out. It was raining like crazy that weekend so we stocked up on rain gear in town and went to the event.

5 Things To Do Around Valencia Street In The San Francisco Mission

Being a local San Franciscan I have seen so many shops and stores change hands in the last several years that it seems like there is a new restaurant or store that pops up every month. Rising rents have led to many of the original businesses leaving and the area becoming the most gentrified that it has ever been before. The fact that the people are non-flashy, friendly, and the real deal is what makes the people in this place unique.

Children's Museum of Phoenix Full of Fun and Creativity

Parking can be a little difficult to come by at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix’s small parking lot that fills up quick (probably because others also feel that this place is amazing) but once I walked through the doors I knew that it was worth the trip. Bringing along kids ranging from 1 to 12 years old gave me a full range of feedback from kids of varying age groups. All the children had a blast the Children’s Museum of Phoenix especially at the massive indoor tree house.

San Francisco Hotels Kensington, Union Square and Diva Hotel

I have stayed at a few great hotels in my travels around the world but none have compared to the Kensington Park Hotel and Hotel Diva and Hotel Union Square hotels in San Francisco. Each hotel had a unique perspective and style, making them a very original experience that greatly enhanced our stay in San Francisco and I highly recommend them for the design and style conscious traveller.
