A Simple 3 Step Skincare Routine for Travel
Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite products while on the go. I try my best to have a skincare routine, but I will be the first to admit that in our busy lives its easy to let it go by the wayside. I find while traveling the better I take care of my skin the easier it is to get ready in the morning as I don’t need as much makeup to make myself feel refreshed and ready for the day.
Great Eats and Drinks in Killarney, Ireland!
When we first arrived in Killarney we already had dinner in Kinsale so we were not looking for dinner options. But we decided to take a quick stroll around town before heading to Ross Castle. We stumbled upon Celtic Whiskey Bar and Larder. We stuck our head in- they were playing Cars, had shelves full of whiskeys and was serving plates of charcuterie, it was like it was calling our names we knew we had to go back.
We went back a few days later, after a long day driving about the Dingle Peninsula this was the perfect place to sit back and relax.
This place was very chill. Don’t let the name fool you, they also offer a large variety of gin cocktails. And not only did they serve spirits from around the world they had a craft beer, cider and wine selection as well. The great thing about this place was that you didn’t have to stick to trying to choose one type of whiskey. They offered a variety of flights as well. And even better a wide variety of price levels to fit your choosing. The flights cost anywhere from 14 euros to 60 euros.
Having dinner in Dingle already we decided to go for a charcuterie board and a flight of whiskey. My husband order the “Irish Favorites” flight and it was thoroughly enjoyed. We still talk about how perfect this place was for us. All our favorite eats and drinks!

Where to Stay in Chicago: FieldHouse Jones
If looking where to stay in Chicago, you should definitely check this place out. Ringing in the dirty 30 my husband and I celebrated my 30th birthday in Chicago. Staying at the trendy FieldHouse Jones in Chicago made it an even more perfect weekend. Although I usually like seeing new places, it has been over 10 years since I have visited. My last time in the Windy City was on a high school art field trip and this was my husbands first time in the city!
Travel Gear Wish List
1. / 2. / 3. / 4. / 5. / 6. / 7.
As we start planning for our next European adventure I have started to compose some items that are on my wish list for our trip. Some may be more essential than the others but all still great travel items to have.
When sitting down to plan our first European adventure we stumbled upon someone hanging on the side of the Swiss cliffs slide via Google Earth pics. All we knew at the time was that it was near the town of Murren and Gimmelwald in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. After some intense research we found that these people were on something called a via ferrata. At the time we had never heard of a via ferrata, but now they are something we look for at every trip location.
As we sat down to plan out our trip to Ireland we knew we wanted to get a chance to see the sight everyone thinks of in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher. We usually try our best to stay away, or not spend a lot of time at major tourist sights, so we were not sure how authentic of an experience we would get in Doolin. Heading into Doolin, the closet town to the Cliffs of Moher we thought we would be staying in a large tourist trap. But my goodness the food and drinks were sooo good. I am not sure if this was Ireland’s version of a tourist area but we were definitely loving our meals and drinks around town. Here are a few places that we recommend.
Killarney Brewing Company
We always love to find the best eats and drinks in the towns we travel to. Before arriving I thought for sure that Ireland would mostly serve major Irish labels in their local bars. After a little research we found out we were very wrong. Most towns had at least one local brewery. One of our favorite was in Killarney, Ireland named Killarney Brewing Company.
