Two Months in Europe: Planning The Ultimate Working Vacation

First off, there’s no excuse for my major absence from blogging over the last couple years, except that life happens. Life has happened a lot… but I’m ready to get back into the swing of things and excited to share adventures from my upcoming trip to Europe!

Last year, I started a new job that allows me to work from home. My headquarters is in Northern California, but I work comfortably from my laptop in Houston; most days in my pajamas as you’d probably imagine. I love my new job because I get to work at my own pace and also have a life again. On top of that, I really like the people I work with – a huge plus!

It was some time around December when I realized that this was the perfect opportunity for me to finally see the world and that’s when I decided to start planning a trip to Europe. You’ll probably find this hard to believe as there are great resources to find out the destination for our holiday trip, but I haven’t been outside of the country since I was too young to even remember.  I got permission from my boss to work abroad for two months, and as long as I get my work done and update my team every morning (which will be evening for me), I can enjoy the rest of my day.

So where will I be going? I made this handy graphic, mostly for my own reference because I’m such a visual person, but also to share on Instagram (obviously).


I am beyond excited to go but I have to admit that I’m also feeling a bit anxious! I’ve never gone on a trip for this long by myself, and I’m hoping I don’t get so overwhelmed that I end up just hanging out at the Airbnb and never leaving Milan. (Seriously, don’t put it passed me.) Thankfully, I am meeting Anisha in Paris, and she’s pretty much a professional traveler.

I can’t wait to share my trip with you guys; this is going to be the perfect way to re-introduce my blog to the world as something not just focused on makeup but lifestyle, work, travel, and fashion as well!
