Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
We all have so much to be thankful for. I know that I do. I’m thankful for my family, my boyfriend, my friends, my dog. I’m thankful for my health, my job, and waking up in the morning. I’m also thankful for books and being able to read. These are only a few things that I am thankful for in a long list of things to be thankful for. It’s very easy to get tied up in the things that we don’t have, and not remember the good that we do have. I know I often times dwell on that one insignificant thing that made me mad, sad, or annoyed and missed out on the rest of the good around me. Take this time to share something new with your friends or family and to remember everything that you are thankful for. In my Etsy Shop, I will be having a 20% off sale with the code THANKFUL please feel free to look around. Have a fantastic holiday and until next time,

Wanderlust: Pisa

Our next stop on our Italian adventure was visiting Pisa! I’m not going to lie, seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa has been on my bucket list for sometime. Seeing it in person was very different than what I ever could have imagined. Believing that hey, maybe the ground is on a slant, or maybe the foundation gave way. There was every intention of the building being straight, but somewhere the building became tilted. The Leaning Tower is actually a Bell Tower in the Piazza dei Miracoli that goes with the Duomo di Pisa in the plaza and two other buildings.
We had a fun time exploring the Plaza of Miracles, and of course we had to get pizza in Pisa. Check out our pictures below!

We tried so many times to get the iconic picture of “pushing” the tower back straight. Let’s just say someone didn’t understand the concept….

Is Pisa a place that is on your bucket list? Until next time,

Wanderlust: Cinque Terre

 Cinque Terre or the English translation of “Five Lands” in Italian is just that. It is a chain of 5 islands on the Italian Riviera. We were able to easily get to Cinque Terre by taking the train from La Spezia to Riomaggiore, which is the farthest one of the five. People come from all over the world to view these, lets call them islands, to hike the seaside mountains, which are filled with trails for ever hiker experience level. All of Cinque Terre is also considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site through the Cinque Terre National Park. So, if you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, and hiking experience where you could possibly get some wine along the way this place is for you!
The beautiful landscape and homes right on the side of the mountains is enough to take anyones breath away. There’s a lot more than just hiking through these lovely villages. There’s plenty to eat and drink like there is in any Italian city or villa. My mother and I had a wonderful time wandering through the trails, and checking out the beach. There were so many picturesque places that we were able to get the best scenery shots and selfies!! Here are some of our pictures below!cinque-terre-2

Who knew my mother was such a great photographer?! Here I am with my favorite Kelly Moore bag that I travel with everywhere! You can see my review on this bag here

We went during late September and early October meaning that it was cool in the mornings and then hot during the afternoons. Hence why I’m wearing long sleeves, but I’m also wearing shorts as well.
I never expected to add travel to this blog, so I did not get very many scenery shots of these beautiful villages, but of course you should go check them out for yourself.  Until next time,

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.
busybands-headshot
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,
