Wanderlust: La Spezia

While on our tour of Italy last fall we stayed in La Spezia in order to get to Cinque Terre. We didn’t get to explore the small city very much, but we did have two fabulous dinners there. The city is beautiful and easily walkable much like every other Italian city. We stayed at Hotel Firenze, which had a delicious breakfast in the morning and a great balcony view of the city. Hera are some pictures of our limited time in La Spezia.

This is the lovely hotel we stayed in La Spezia. The hotel is kind of small, and only has one tiny elevator, but luckily they have stairs and the floors aren’t too far apart.

Here’s a picture of the two of us enjoying one of those amazing dinners in La Spezia. Look at those wine glasses!!
We enjoyed our stop over in La Spezia, and it is the perfect place to stay to get to Cinque Terre as that is only a short train ride away. Come back soon to see my post on Cinque Terre to figure out why people from all over the world come to visit the rocky island cities! Until next time,

Busy Bands by 90s Born Reader!!

I’m so excited to announce my next adventure!! If you follow me on social media than you already know what I’m talking about!! I would like to share with you my Busy Bands!!
The idea all started because I am sometimes too lazy to do my hair (curly girl problems) and I wear headbands often, but I wanted my headbands to be as versatile as I am. I wanted to be able to wear them out, work out in them, and wear them to work. I wanted my hair to still look like I tried even though I know I didn’t.

Also with the rise of busy schedules and always being on the move there needed to be a quick go to solution. Thus Busy Bands were made!!
I made them so that they were long enough to go around your head and be tied in a bow in the front, the back, the side, wherever! If you like the ends to hang down you can also do that or take bobby pins and pin them to your hair. It is also wide enough to cover up any edges you didn’t have time to fix. You can also tie them around a bun. The bands are also reversible so that they can go with any outfit. Some of them also come with satin backs to easily slide over your curls.
c9a14520-41df-45fa-85b4-d37a8fd1cc6dThe headbands are not solely for curly girls, they are for everyone!! Anyone can wear a Busy Band and rock them on their busiest day, lazy day, workout day, or just when you want to add an accessory to your hair. Please check them out in my Etsy Store! http://90sbornreader.etsy.com Until next time,

Winter, Marissa Meyer

Winter_CoverWinter by Marissa Meyer picks up directly from where we left off the last time. Cinder and her crew are still finding away to defeat the Lunar Queen, Levanna. Princess Winter is the main insight of this story. Princess Winter is the most beautiful Princess in Lunar, if not the entire solar system. It is because of her beauty that she is a threat to Levanna. Princess Winter is also crazy, or at least that is what the people of Lunar think. The Princess is the nicest person on the Lunar Satellite, but when Queen Levanna gets jealous of Princess Winter’s beauty she scars Princess Winter. With Princess Winter being Lunar she should be able to glamour herself, but Princess Winter refuses to use her gifts. Instead she walks around showing her scar even though it is said that her glamour is the most beautiful of them all. When a Lunar does not use their gifts it takes over their mind and causes them to go insane.The Princess has done a good job of managing her illness, but sometimes it does get the better of her. Though the Princess is ill do not mistake her for weak. She is one  of the strongest characters in here, and does her part to help Cinder and her friends.
The “Lunar Chronicles” final installment is just as captivating as the first books. I really enjoyed reading the whole series even though the first book, Cinder, took me awhile to get in to. The whole series plays an interesting twist on our favorite fairy tale characters, and for the battle of good vs. evil.  The series follows a group of unlikely friends and allies into situations that they never imagined themselves in. Cinder and her friends have come together to fight for what they believe in. Until next time,

Wanderlust: Rapallo

After our stop in Milan the next part of our tour with Traveling Together took us to Rapallo Italy, which is a seaside town. When we were there they were preparing for a race, and had some of the streets blocked off. We used this as a quick stop for food, and sight seeing as we made our way to La Spezia.
Here are some of our pictures from the few hours we had there.
