Destinations to Visit this Summer & What to Wear

After what feels like years of waiting, we are finally approaching the brink of summer. Soon, it will be the season where we can wear dresses, shorts, sandals and all of our other summer pieces without fear of catching a cold or getting rained on. If you also live in the UK, you are sure to understand what a big deal that is!

As if that wasn’t reason enough to love summer, this is also the best time of year for exploration and travel. For those of you who are yet to decide on a summer holiday destination yet, here are two completely different options that are likely to peak your interest as well as what to wear while you’re there.

Paris

What To Do:

Whether you’re travelling alone, with friends or with your significant other, Paris is always a good idea. After all, who would want to miss out on the chance to sip coffee and munch on croissants while basking in the glory of the Notre Dame, the Eifel Tower or the Louvre? Plus, for the shoppers out there The City of Love is also home to a variety of stores including intimate boutiques as well as some of the top designer retailers in the world such as Chanel, Sessun and Cancan.

 

What To Wear:

Parisian style is based entirely on the idea of remaining chic yet tailored; stylish but with a decidedly conservative edge. Usually, French socialites tend to adhere to the “no more than three colours” rule and opt for neutral tones over bright, flashy hues. Fortunately, it is easier to recreate this style than you might think. All you need is some well-fitting ankle length jeans, some tidy pumps and a shirt with a feminine edge to emulate Parisian elegance like a pro.

Las Vegas

What To Do:

For those of you who fancy going further afield this summer, how could Las Vegas possibly be ignored? In fact, if you have a bit of a wild side there are few places that will suit you better that this not so humble Nevada desert town. Las Vegas is home to The Strip after all: 4.2 miles packed full of hotel resorts, entertainment venues and restaurants. There, you’ll find some of the most famous casinos and games in the world including roulette, poker and slots such as those in the NetEnt Rocks Trilogy. Those of you who have been tempted to try it yourself in the past by playing at tech-savvy online casinos such as Vegas Casino – who offers a variety of Vegas-style games including a live casino – are sure to understand exactly why Las Vegas is a great place to visit.

What To Wear:

As you may imagine, styling Las Vegas is a bit trickier than Paris as there are no rules about fashion but many about attire. That is, you can wear whatever you please but there will be some venues that refuse entry if you’re looking a little too casual. Still, all you have to do is bear that in mind while packing and you should be fine: just opt for a casual-formal attire. A nice dress or some tailored trousers with a smart top are sure to do the trick.

There you have it: two very different travel option for you to mull over this summer. Where are you planning to head this summer or are you yet to make a decision? Let us know in the comments below.

Beauty Muse – Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey being a Beauty Muse should come as no surprise. I think she is a drop dead beauty, who doesn’t seem to age at all. If anything, she seems to look younger every time I spot a photo of her.

Mariah Carey is a flawless beauty! I know she has had plastic surgery done a couple of times, and that may explain her near perfect features. Whatever she did looks amazing, and I like the fact that she owns it.

You should all know how I feel about plastic surgery and general body enhancements. I have written a few times about cosmetic surgery on the blog. I have nothing against them, as long as they are done tastefully and safely, and as long as you own it!

I wrote about Mariah Carey’s ex -husband – Nick Cannon, some days ago, and how I am rooting for them to get back together. I really hope they do get back together, they look so good as a couple, and their twins are so cute!

Anyways, back to the Mariah Carey being a Beauty Muse; I have always wanted to know more about Mariah’s beauty regime and her beauty secrets if any. In my search, I came across her best beauty tips in one of her interviews with Vogue, which has now been bookmarked for future reference.

Here are some of her tips you may find interesting –

Less is more

“I hate mascara. I never wear it,” she has said. “Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit.” A clear penchant for faux lashes notwithstanding, this means that “if you’re not wearing a lot of makeup, you don’t have to take a lot of it off. So, my goal is to wear the least amount of makeup possible so I don’t have to steam my face and take it all off.”

 

I can see how this is a great beauty secret. The more makeup we have on, the more time and energy will be required to take it off. And most times, our skin tends to hurt from all the makeup removing. Especially if the makeup is long lasting, which is all well and good until it is time to wipe it off.

No carbs, embrace cardio

You would hate my diet,” she has said. “All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers. That’s it. I try to stick with the proteins. It’s the worst.”

Don’t eat salad if you’re about to do, like, a photo shoot, because it bloats you,” warns Carey. “Never eat the water.”

Now I understand why how she has an amazing figure. I wish I could live on eating proteins alone.
