We honestly had the best time in Ireland. It will go down as one of our favorite destinations yet. We kept saying how even logistically speaking, it was one of our best trips. Everything just went so smoothly. Which was a HUGE contrast to our first day in Moscow.

We had a bit of an eye opener. We just came here without doing enough research and so arriving and getting to the hotel was so stressful, probably the most stressful travel experience we’ve had. But we made it and spent a full day in Moscow exploring the Red Square. We love it here and can’t wait to share more, just needed a good night sleep to restart.

I’m right now putting together our Ireland travel guide and itinerary which I’ll be sharing tomorrow.  We originally didn’t plan on going to Northern Ireland because our schedule didn’t allow it, but when we ended up going earlier, we spent a few days there and even went to Giant’s Causeway TWICE! These are pictures from the first visit. It was so pretty and so bizarre at the same time. We drove the Costal Causeway Route and stumbled upon the cutest farms, fed the sheep and explored a castle. It was perfect. We are late to the Game of Thrones train but started watching it and we are obsessed. I actually sometimes have to ban myself from watching shows because I get WAY to into them and cant wait til bedtime so we can lay in bed and watch. So I am trying to only watch an episode every night and not like 4 ha. Anyways, we went to the Dark Hedges where a scene from Game of Thrones was filmed and it is fun seeing that location come up in the show now.

I wore these Levi’s which I got during the shopbop sale and I am just obsessed with how affordable and awesome Levi’s are. Not to mention I love the pockets.

Happy Tuesday!

  13. it really isn’t anyone’s business, religion or not. a show with a sex scene doesn’t make it porn, btw. and even if it WAS porn, judgment much? he who is without sin shall cast the first stone. let’s try to build each other up–preach positivity if you want to preach 🙂 GOT is actually a phenomenal show!!

    It’s so cool you guys are in Moscow! I’m jealous… I feel like so many people are in Europe right now (both bloggers and people I know IRL) but you’re the only one in Moscow. Such a fun and unique destination; I’ve been following along on snap 🙂

    Xx Maya from Maya Unmarketed

    1. Ahh thank you thank you!! 🙂 And it is amazing here!! We are loving it so far! Stay tuned for a Moscow post soon!

    1. Totally!! I think it should be on everyone’s bucket list 🙂

  22. I’m a huge GOT fan too so I love that you were able to visit where they filmed. Happy you had a great time in Ireland, can’t wait to read tomorrow’s blog post.

    1. So glad you love the show too!! It made it even more cool to see it! And yes stay tuned for tomorrow’s post 🙂

  23. These photos are breathtaking! I always think of Ireland as a destination I want to get to someday, but with no rush. After seeing this pictures I want to go now! I’m sorry your experience in Moscow has been stressful at first – it sounds like it’s about to be a whole lot of fun though! 🙂

    xx http://www.qustomquinns.com/blog

    1. Thanks so much Quinn!! It is so gorgeous there, it made it easy to capture the beauty 🙂 You should definitely go someday!!

  24. Awesome pictures! You guys are the sweetest! ????
    And I’m so sorry you had such stressful first day in Moscow!! ???? I live here and I know how difficult the life here can be. The city is veeery big, the roads are veeery long and the people are veeery different: good and not very good, unfortunately ????. But in spite of it I hope you’ll love Moscow! Maybe you should correct your route a little bit and visit more calm and comfortable places for you and your wonderful family. For example there’s a beautiful part of Moscow called Kolomenskoe. I promise you’ll love it! By the way, the famous Palace of the Russian King Aleksey Mikhailovich is located there. It’s worth to be seen!
    In addition to my previous advices I would say that Russia also has a great “second capital”- the first CULTURAL capital – Saint Petersburg. It’s actually the city-museum! The greatest accumulation of the historical sights. If you have an opportunity to visit Saint Petersburg you’ll have the most pleasant time in our country ????

  27. Beautiful pics!!! I have always wanted to go to Ireland. Also what nail polish are you wearing? I’m obsessed with that color!!

  28. Love the kisses in these photos! I feel you on doing the research before travelling. A problem I’m having is that I’m more of the planner between my boyfriend and I. He just wants to see where the trip takes him. No planning. Nothing. For me, I don’t need a rigid itinerary but I think there’s certain things that require you to plan so I’m planning anyway and just not mentioning it to him (he gets sulky when he hears the planning.) lmao

  29. So beautiful!! I especially love the photo of David with both kids! Such pretty lighting! Can’t wait for the Ireland travel guide, it’s going to be my next European destination 🙂

  30. These pictures are insane !!! I dream of going to Ireland someday . I have a question for your next q&a … How do you guys afford to travel so much . We have three kids and it’s so hard to travel plus expensive ? But we do own a pretty beautiful home so I guess it’s a trade off .?! But just wondering .?

  31. That is so awesome that you went to a location in Game of Thrones! I need to get back to Ireland and check those spots out. I loved Giant”s Causeway when I was there and actually got to witness a marriage proposal on one of the rocks! http://www.chasingbelle.com

  32. gorgeous! can’t wait to visit here one day! i just love your style–always look so put together.

  33. Moscow is really beautiful and Armenia(my country) is 2 hours from Russia, so you should visit one day.. Can’t wait to see the Moscow pictures ????❤️❤️❤️????????????XoXo

  34. Hw exciting to be there at the same place they filmed GOT. It happened the same to me. I just started to catch up with all the season of the show, and it is so hard no to watch 3-4 episodes a day. So addictive.
    How cute Atticus giving you flowers with a kiss. He is definitely raised by a very kind and loving mother that he adores!
    Enjoy Russia!

    Also, I was late to the Game of Thrones party too and oh my gosh I CANNOT get enough! This one braided hairstyle (here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BE1UaRFEelY/) you did has major Khaleesi vibes! Just wait until y’all start the current season. So so good! I hope you’re having a wonderful time and can’t wait to see the itinerary you share with us! xo

  39. You are totally the “cool mom” in that outfit, I LOVE it!!!

    So glad you guys had such a wonderful time in Ireland, hope Moscow turns out to be the same way after some sleep!
