So you all seemed to like Iceland day 1!  For those of you commenting and keeping up with these posts, I was in Iceland in July of this year.  That means that right now in Iceland they are in their “period of darkness” where they don’t get very much sun.  Our time in Iceland was apparently one of the coldest summers they’ve had in a while, but it was so beautiful out. Anyways, let’s get to day two.

On day two we had a picnic breakfast of pastries from Sandholt and made our way to the ferry for a ride to Videy Island.  Videy is this little island with a beautiful landscape that offers an incredible view of the city.  There are paths all over for nice walks and some times during the year there are horses to ride.  Oh and of course, there’s another park.  It’s also home to the Yoko Ono Imagine Peace Tower and this lovely restaurant where just about all of us ordered fish and chips.

After a ton of play time on the island, we spent a lot of time walking around Reykjavik and went out for some sushi at Sushibarinn.  The sushi was great and we also ended up getting some incredible beverages.  I got an acai berry and kiwi rum daiquiri and B got an elderflower drink.  Everything in Iceland is super scrumptious.  Sigh.  Can you tell I’m hungry now?

Well I hope you guys enjoyed day 2 and that you’re looking forward to day 3!  Day 3 is coming with a vlog and I can’t wait to show it to you.

Bows On The Road: Iceland Day 1.

Hey there, bow friends!

Today’s post is the first in a series of photo heavy posts to lead up to the first Iceland vlog!  Yay!  Finally!  Day one was mostly adventuring around, playing in parks, and getting familiar with our surroundings.  We also spent some time in the National museum, which was a really lovely museum actually.  Icelandic culture and history is extremely interesting to learn about.  Reykjavik is honestly one of the most gorgeous cities I’ve ever been in.  Can we talk about the food though for a second?  That first photo is probably one of my favorite meals from the entire trip.  It’s from Glo, an amazing vegetarian restaurant we stopped in a few times.  You must eat there.  You have to.  That yummy burger down there?  That’s from Hamborgharafabrikkan (The Hamburger Factory).  I’ve become a fan of over easy eggs (which is just crazy for me) and on a veggie burger, it was absolutely delicious.  That’s one thing about Iceland I love.  It’s so easy to get your vegetarian food on most anywhere you go.  Well, it’s also easy to get your seafood/nice meats on too.

That’s it for day 1.  More in depth information on what we did that day along with some gorgeous footage will be up later this week!  I hope you enjoyed!

We shall talk soon.

BowTube: Collective Haul – MAC, Maybelline, NYX, and More!

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 7.29.46 PMHey there bow friends!

If you missed my explanation for why I’ve been absent for the last week, basically, I had an Organic Chemistry test that took away all of my time so I haven’t been posting as regularly recently.  But I do have another video for you!  Yup, another haul.  I refuse to feel bad about it.  Some normal posts will be coming your way soon.  Actually, another haul video might be coming your way too.  I divided them into two: this more drugstore haul and a more high end focused haul with a little twist.  I hope you will all enjoy this kind of thing.

Thanks for watching, everyone!  Is there anything specifically you’d want to hear more on?  Please let me know.  I’d love to review some things for you all and I’m not sure what to talk about first!

How are you all doing?  How’s school going?  Work?  My Organic test went well, by the way!  I’m kind of getting good at it.  I haven’t been understanding physics as easily though and Beau has been having to teach me a ton.  Fingers crossed I get better at it.

We shall talk soon!
