Happy Tuesday! 

I took a brief hiatus from the blog while traveling in Easter Island. We returned to Santiago very late Saturday night (actually Sunday morning at 2am!), after a wonderful six days on the island. I cannot begin to sing their praises enough. The ancient statues were beyond awe inspiring, the people were amazing and so kind, and I cannot begin to tell you how incredible the food was. Seriously, it was gourmet and delicious. 

I would highly recommend it to any travel buff or someone that loves history and people. The tours were exhausting - lots of hiking and very go, go, go - there was not a minute to spare. Before heading there, my mom and I talked about what we planned to do with the free time we'd have between tours, but there was none of that. Although it was busy, it was still relaxing and very liberating being disconnected and being in a place very caught in the past, with an incredibly relaxed mentality. 

Since I've been wearing nothing but tennis shoes and bermudas the past week, I couldn't wait to share this fun, casual chic look with you. This stripe blouse is only $20 and could be mixed and matched a number of ways, think pencil skirt or leather leggings. The outfit could not be complete without these fun Lanvin sunnies from Ditto. Ditto offers designer eyewear that you can trade in and out for a monthly fee of $24! How amazing is that??! Use promo code:ASHLEYNICOLE for your first month free!

Before heading on my trip, I did a three day cleanse, courtesy of Juice From the Raw. I don't enjoy doing cleanses, as I hate giving up the foods that I love, but every so often it is a great way to reset and recharge. I would highly recommend JFTR as it came in the mail, fresh and ready to drink. Plus, it was easy to follow, kept me as full as I could be, and allowed me to have one or two raw veggies each day. If you're not ready to jump into a cleanse headfirst, try juices as meal replacements. I do this often, and really enjoy it. Plus it gives you all your daily fruits and veggies! 

We set sail out of Valparaiso today, on a 17 day cruise on board Princess Cruises. This is my 13th journey with Princess, (I've done about a dozen more with different cruise lines) and I'm looking forward to traveling up the western coast of South America. Next stop, La Serena, Chile. 

See you soon!
