Hey!

It’s December already!! I love this month! We are knee deep into the holidays and everyone is going crazy shopping and prepping! And….it has gotten really cold here in NYC. L  And it gets dark by 4:30pm.  So this would be a great time to reminisce on warmer, brighter days.  Earlier this year, I took a trip with a few friends to Turkey.  It was incredible and amazing!! I luv’d it!  It’s the perfect mix of The Middle East and Europe.  The architecture, the food, the culture.  I’m definitely going to go back, soon!!!!  What happened to art in Italy during the Renaissance, it happened to architecture in Turkey during the Ottoman Empire.

So here are some of the gorgeous sights to Turkey.  I will be posting some other Turkey related beauty stuff , including a makeup look inspired by art!!
