Link Love Friday: Wanderlust

I have a bad case of wanderlust every single day, but this week it’s been especially strong. I’ve been to some really amazing places (Egypt, Italy, Ireland, Russia and more), but there are so many places that I have yet to see. Machu Picchu tops the list. I’ve had my feet firmly planted on the ground here in Charlotte, however, and I’ve shared some scary-good Etsy finds (just in time for Halloween), gift ideas for cancer survivors, a DIY beauty slideshow I curated for Kirtsy, and my newest beauty obsession, my Neom Organics candle.

Here’s what I’ve been reading+enjoying elsewhere:

  • Sarai from Sweet Sassafras blogged about her friend’s hair and facial oils (they sound lovely!) and also about Rocky Top Soap Shop, an Etsy shop with really beautiful-looking soap.
  • Terresa at the Pure Alima blog shared some really cute Halloween makeup ideas for kids, made with Alima’s natural mineral makeup. (Be sure you scroll to the bottom–one of those awesome rockers is her son!)
  • Siobhan at No More Dirty Looks tried gua sha, and although it sounds painful I have to admit that I’m seriously intrigued. I’m already a big fan of acupuncture (more on that later), and this sounds like something I’d like to try. Would you?
  • Over at Organic Authority, I liked this post about synthetic makeup brushes, since I recently started using several Dermablend brushes and have been really impressed with them.

What are you reading+enjoying this week? (And while I’m at it…what destination is at the top of your wanderlust list?)

      Me too, Mary! If all goes well, hopefully I’ll be headed there sometime next year. So. Excited.

    OMG I am having major wonderlust too! I thought Italy/Paris would tame it, but alas it did not.

    My top destination right now is Turkey.
    Followed closely by Colombia, Peru (Machu Pichu especially) and Buenos Aires

    Colombia is going to happen (most likely) for us next year, and I think Turkey is going to happen as a girls trip (fingers crossed!)

    If you hit up Machu Pichu, start training for it now. Everyone I know who’s been says you need to train for almost a year to be in good enough shape

      Turkey is on my list, too! And definitely Argentina. Although, I don’t know who I’m kidding — pretty much every place on earth is on my list. 🙂

      Thanks for the heads-up about the Machu Picchu hike…I’m a little nervous, since I’ve experienced altitude sickness before and it really sucks. But I really can’t imagine there being a more amazing way to reach the summit, and I really can’t wait!

        my coworker did this last year and she did the entire Inca Trail hike. She said it was intense but well worth it. At points she said the altitude sickness did hit her. I believe you have to stay in Cuzco for a few days to get acclimated, and they also recommend chewing on coco leaves (apparently that’s what locals do) but I would do some research.

        Altitude sickness is no joke. But everyone I know who has gone to Machu Pichu says it’s one of the best trips they have ever taken.

        Pretty much everywhere is on my wonderlist too! But certain countries I am not as interested in. Lately I have been wanting to go to North Africa, some parts of the Middle East and South America. I guess it’s because they are more off the beaten path? Or perhaps that culturally it’s all different (excluding South America since I live in Miami.)
