As promised, I’m back again this week with another post from the 7-day Alaskan cruise adventure Cole and I took with Princess Cruises earlier this September. I’ve been taking you chronologically through each of the stops on our cruise, starting with Juneau (our Monday stop) and then Skagway (our Tuesday stop), so I wanted to dedicate today’s post to what was definitely one of our favorite days of the cruise:  our day of scenic cruising through Glacier Bay National Park.

Whip Your Winter Moisturizing Routine Into Shape

MOISTURIZER: c/o Olay Whips  //  PUFFER COAT: similar River Island  //  LACE UP SWEATER: similar Lost & Wander  //  CHUNKY KNIT SCARF: similar Sole Society  //  PINK RAIN BOOTS: Jack Rogers  // EARRINGS: c/o BaubleBar //  HEART SUNGLASSES: Wildfox

Winter is practically here, y’all. One of the first unfortunate signs of winter’s arrival is how quickly it affects my skin. The dry, cold air means dry, dull skin (and always having extra chapstick and lotion handy). It’s around this time that my beauty routine needs a moisturization upgrade. The trouble with most ultra-hydrating moisturizers is that they leave that sticky, heavy feeling behind, which is why I’m SO excited about one of my go-to brand’s newest moisturizer:  Olay Whips! It’s a new moisturizer from the skincare brand you know and trust that instantly absorbs into your skin, providing the ultimate hydrating look and feel without any heaviness or residue left behind.

Travel Colorfully – 5 Things to Do in Skagway, Alaska

skagway alaska travel guide


As much as I love the holiday season, the last couple of weeks before Christmas can always be a bit…stressful. That’s why it’s the perfect time to have a treat yo-self moment…something you can look forward to after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over, and if I could make a recommendation to anyone, it would be to start planning a 2018 Alaskan cruise, now! I probably sound like a broken record player, but there simply aren’t enough words to explain how much Cole and I loved every second of our 7-Day Alaska cruise experience with Princess Cruises earlier this September. So instead of bombarding you with last minute holiday gift guides and sales, I’m taking a break from it all by dedicating this week on the blog to sharing ALL the photos (and videos, hopefully…working on it, y’all!) from the remaining stops on our Alaskan cruise.

Earlier this month, I shared our wonder-filled ventures in the capitol of Alaska, Juneau, and I’m starting this week off with my travel guide to the second stop on our Alaskan Cruise, gorgeous Skagway! Click through to read my recommendations on the top five things to do in Skagway, Alaska.
