Ciao...for a week...

Lovely readers, I'm sorry, but I'm leaving you for a week! Bah! I've never left my blog for so long. But, I have a good excuse. I'm going to be here for a week:

My little (angel) sister is finishing her mission there and I get to go pick her up with my parents and older sister. I'm out of my mind excited.

And you'll be impressed to know that I packed all of my stuff in one backpack. I have four outfits for eight days... and all of my makeup and toiletries (I hate that word) in a pint-sized Ziplock bag. (Insert awkward, but proud, chest-bump here.) Why, yes, I am incredibly proud of myself. AE Jones: high maintenance? Heck no. I think I'd do quite well traveling across Europe with just one bag. Maybe I'll try it. But for now, I'm traveling Moscow, for one week, with one backpack.

And, for your (and my) enjoyment, I purchased this:

in order to provide you with neat-o pictures from Moscow.

Can't wait to share with you!
Ciao bellas!

    I'm kind of wondering how big your backpack is? Maybe it's a real big one, eins mit dem man wandern geht, you know... ;D I think I would need a real big one.

  6. so cool. so happy I found your blog. I'm a new follower, I hope you will as well. I started my blog 2 months ago. It's all about celebrity fashion from the point of view of an LA stylist. I moved to cali last year after graduating back in the south and I can't get enough of your blog. Would love if you could stop by to see multiple post a day on all the latest celebrity fashion news. Would love your support. xoxo

  8. Holy moly, I think you may need to teach me your mad packing skills. I've got a couple trips coming up that will kill me in baggage fees if I'm not careful!

    Also, SUPER jealous of your travels! Have fun!
