This summer I took a tiny break from blogging because I spent it back home in Colombia. Colombia is a beautiful country in South America filled with amazing people, great food, and an inspiring culture. I usually go home every break, but I spend it at home with my family. This summer, I actually did a tiny bit of traveling and visited places I hadn’t been to in a while.

Bogota

I started the trip in Bogota, the capital, known for its London-esque weather. One of the downsides of Bogota is the high level of pollution, but it is such a big city, there’s a little bit for everyone.

Some great places to visit in Bogota are,

  • Museo del Oro (Gold Museum)
  • Plaza de Bolivar (Bolivar Square)
  • Museo de la Independencia (Independence Museum)
  • Monserrate

Villa de Leyva

We then visited Villa de Leyva, a beautiful town where most buildings are white, there are cobbled streets, and a huge town square. They hold a beautiful kite festival in August in the town square, it is extremely popular, and a great experience. Towns like Villa de Leyva have grown in popularity, especially among foreign tourists which is great, but it does mean it has gotten a bit more expensive than other Colombian destinations.

Salento

Salento is the place you need to visit if you love handmade products – they have everything from jewelry, to homeware, to clothing, you’ll be able to find a variety of stores and products to fill your home with beautiful Colombian artesanias.

Before any trip, I like to go on Instagram and look at the hashtags of each city/place to find new places that aren’t the stereotypical tourist sites. I would highly recommend doing this if you’re going somewhere soon. You can also look for travel bloggers, or bloggers based on that city, try to contact them and ask them for their top list of places to visit, they might even offer to be your tour guide.

  • Everyone talks about eyebrows being sisters not twins... I feel the same way about eyelashes. Loved trying out the @marcbeauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. It's easy for this one to get on the clumpy side, but I think wiping the excess off really helps. What are your favorite mascara tricks to make them look more even?

  • Happy Wednesday!! Went foundation-less for this and forgot how much I like it! Before getting into makeup I would only do concealer and powder. After I got into makeup I started feeling like I HAD to wear some sort of base. You don't HAVE to do anything and you'll look gorgeous as long as you're feeling comfortable with yourself
💪🏼

Aquí me salte la base. Antes de que me obsesionada con el maquillaje solo usaba corrector y polvos. Luego empece a sentir que TENÍA que usar algún tipo de base. La verdad es que no TIENES que hacer nada. Te verás hermosa con tal de que te estás sintiendo cómoda!
