#pressplay I smiled at every single person in Austria today. I want Europeans to think of a happy smiling person when they think of an American abroad. I also only speak 3 phrases of German and feel like smiling cushions the blow of my linguistic ineptitude. Hallstatt Austria is just breathtaking! I randomly saw it on Pinterest and immediately knew I had to see it in person. They have buses that come all the time from Salzburg but it doubles the time. If you're feeling adventurous I highly recommend renting a car (we used #hertz and they were very nice). Then you can do everything on your own time and stop wherever you want. We drove from Salzburg to St. Gilgen to Hallstatt. If you're following me on Snachat you got to see all of the beautiful lakes on the way there! For dessert in town try Kaiserschmarrn!!!! It's the most ridiculously delicious caramelized pancake with cranberry sauce. My lipstick diary is #1 lipstain from #Sephora with #KevynAucoin lip liner in Cerise. I wore it for 12 hours without retouching (for the win!).

This weekend I had the opportunity to do hair and makeup for the ever inspiring @mrsrodial when she spoke at the @simplystylistxo event at #TheGrove . A perk of the job was sitting in on the beauty and fashion blogger forum. It was really fun listening to expert advice from people I respect in the industry (omg @michaelcostello ) speak about risks they took to get where they are. I feel like overall the biggest message was to be your authentic self. Why is simple advice sometimes the hardest to take? Anyway if you are trying to start a #beautyblog I highly recommend attending one of these events- you get a lot of info and its a great way to make new connections. #rodialskincare #makeup #simplystylist #beautyblogger #Youtube #alessandraambrosio #Givenchy #shopperstote #valentino #dowhatyoulove #sprinklescupcakesinmymouth
