Catching all the views

From the Pyramids of Giza, to the Louvre, & even the location where Game of Thrones was filmed, when you think of where to travel, you think of the places you grew up seeing in books, the places that serve as a backdrop to your favorite stories told through film, the places where it’ll be mandatory to pack a camera. 

Of course, you’ll be camera ready too! You know you’ll be seen while you’re seeing the sites & you come prepared.

Your perfect destination... Greece

From beach clubs to architecture (the whitewashed buildings have made more than a couple of appearances on Instagram) Santorini is a favorite among travelers to Greece, and it’s likely to be your favorite too.

Iconic volcano cliffs in the city remind you of its unique position in the world and, for the moment, of yours. Just Google “flying dress photo Greece” for a spectacle of brightly colored and almost sculptural still images of flowing fabric on gorgeous model types.

Ready to be that model type? Of course, you are. So make sure to get your own flying dress photo while in Santorini. Local photography studios provide inclusive packages, so all you have to bring is yourself and your man (if a cameo is your preference), and they take care of everything from makeup to wardrobe.

Deeply historical, and perhaps more importantly, Instagram worthy sites like the Venetian forts of Corfu, the ancient ruins of Athens, and the breathtaking views at the Acropolis of Lindos - a natural citadel which was fortified successively by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Knights of St. John, and Ottomans are perfect for a breathtaking photo op.

Enjoy it, and be brave about asking your fellow travelers to help you get a shot if you’re short on company or a professional.


Your go to hairstyle: Senegalese twists

Make an effortless statement with something low maintenance but extremely beautiful, like waist length senegalese twists. Pack a gel of choice & a toothbrush to keep your baby hairs looking like an asset & be sure to bring the right products for keeping the scalp clean & moisturised. 

Senegalese twists can easily be styled in a variety of ways to look great in all your photos, & serving as a protective style that helps with hair growth is always a positive. 

Make sure to wrap them up at night so that they stay as neat as possible for as long as possible.
