TRAVEL TUESDAY ✈️ || In honor of Diwali happening this week, I'm taking you to India! Ever wonder where namaste comes from or why the Taj was built? Keep reading!! 🇮🇳 My family and I went for New Years and it was incredible! --- Namaste is not just a something you hear in your yoga class. It is a respectful greeting in the Hindu culture that essentially means 'I bow to the divine in you.' We quickly learned to press our hands together and slightly bow our heads down while saying namaste to greet everyone we met. 🙏🏻 --- Diwali is the Festival of Lights celebrating light over dark or good over evil for five days. It is tradition to light candles all over your house to represent your inner light that protects you from inner darkness. 🕯 --- The Taj Mahal was commissioned by Emperor Shah Jahan to be the his favorite wife's mausoleum. She died after giving birth to their 14th son.
#traveltiptuesday: One of the best decisions we made during our trip to Europe was packing a first aid kit. • Your first aid kit doesn't have to be elaborate! Ours contained a few bandages, gauze and antiseptic. But that simple kit came in handy with all the walking we did. My heels are still grateful (side note: break in your shoes before your trip!) • What is a must have item for you when traveling?
Definitely NOT for the timid!⠀ .⠀ Jay Kos (@jaykosworldwide) is one of the stores I love for unique men with personality.⠀ .⠀ Jay is a designer, but also a Chef and get much of his design inspiration from the food's tastes, colors and textures! Pretty special, huh!?⠀ .⠀ The store's decor sends you back to the 1940's with a twist. He designed a special kitchen that, if you're lucky enough, you'll be served a snack by Jay himself! There are the items for the bold and adventurous men like polka-dot ties, felt hats, rich colored vests and blazers, and other exotic items.⠀ .⠀ The more conservative men are able to find amazing items too like linen suites, wool suites, corduroy pans and the best…exclusive tailored suits that range from $4,500, up to $20,000.⠀ .⠀ It can get pretty expensive, but Jay's singular touch and eye for details do make the price comprehensible.⠀ .⠀ Link in BIO for more info!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Photo Credit: Courtesy of Jay Kos

At La Clotilde restaurant, a really tasty and affordable "parrilla" in Palermo, where you are given some pencils to entertain yourself painting while waiting for the food.
