I'm still in that beauty rut. I can tell you my daily beauty routine has been reduced to mascara and filling in my brows. My skin is still going absolutely crazy right now so I'm avoiding putting anything on it really and it's turning into a vicious cycle of feeling not very pretty because of it but not being able to do anything. I'm starting to suspect that adding toner into my daily skin routine also has something to do with it (and not just changing my diet and change in medication), so I'm trying to see it as a positive that my skin is pushing out all the bad stuff from deep down and in a few weeks my skin will return to a flawless state. Anyways, enough ramblings, veering away from beauty I thought it would be fun to try something new and talk about traveling instead! I promise that Iceland picture/video/everything is still to come, I know I know, I went on this trip in April but a lot has happened and I haven't had time to sit down and just do it yet. But while we are still waiting for that, why not throw together the list of places I am just itching to visit.

1. Spain. Tapas and sangria anyone? I'm lucky enough that my parents are obsessed with traveling so when I was younger I truly was given the world by them. One place I never got to wander to was Spain! This is definitely at the top of my list, more specifically I want to go to Madrid, Barcelona, Cadiz and Ibiza!

2. South Africa. It just looks so amazing and beautiful and wild (without getting too wild). African safari is definitely on my to-do list and a trip to South Africa would be the greatest starting point for that!

3. Brazil. South America is another one of those continents I hadn't gotten the chance to visit. I think my parents feared tropical diseases and getting eaten by wild animals, but I am definitely eager to go. Rio? Carnaval? Sign me up please!

4. New Zealand. One word: Hobbits! I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan so I absolutely need to go see these houses in real life! Also it doesn't hurt that a million YouTube swap videos later I am very interested in New Zealand/Australian drugstore makeup and would love the chance to pick up a ton of stuff there!

5. Egypt. Did I mention I'm also a huge ancient Egypt junky? Absolutely need to see all the pyramids and artifacts in person. When I was younger I devoured any books, movies, and shows I could about Egypt and this has probably been on my bucket list for years now.

6. Greece. Ever since the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants happened, Greece has been on my must visit list. My entire family was kind of enough to go on a Mediterranean cruise that involved stopping at a few Greek islands a few years ago in the middle of my summer school schedule, so needless to say, this is a pretty high priority of mine.

7. New York. Recently I've gotten hooked on Humans of New York and more than ever now I want to go. When I was younger I drove through New York for a day with my family but now I would love to go back and really experience New York. It's an entirely different city than what I'm used to here so it rounds out my list of places to visit quite nicely.

Where are you wanderlust-ing for right now?
