I Bet You’ve Never Heard of… Andor…

Recently, I was scrolling through Youtube and game across a video called “I Accidentally Became Famous in Another Country” (press on to be taken to the link). The lady in the video explains that she had to come up with a Buzzfeed article, as she is a writer for them, and couldn’t think any ideas. Long story short, she write an article called “14 Pics that Prove Malta is the Most Underrated Country in the Mediterranean” (again you can click to see article). This gave me a stroke of inspiration… why don’t I do a recurring segment about some less traveled countries around the world and best places within them!

For the first post of “I Bet You’ve Never Heard of…” I will write aboutttttttttttttt…..


andorra-1.jpgI know what you’re thinking: “where’s this Andorra you speak of?” Well, I’m glad you asked. This adorable country is in the Pyrenees mountains right between Spain and France.

See the outlined black circle? Andorra is right in there. Cute right?andorra-map.jpg

Here are a few popular ski resorts in Andorra




If you aren’t a skier that’s okay. You can always visit Sant Joan de Caselles Church aka THE tourist stop of Andorra. You can’t go without visiting this! I mean c’mon it can’t get more beautiful!!! Església_de_Sant_Joan_de_Caselles_-_7-4.jpg

This building is hard to miss if you are ever in Les Escaldes, Andorra. Along with its jaw dropping architecture this building doubles as a spa (called Caldea). I couldn’t think of a better way to relax and warm up from the slopes for a day, or maybe just a couple hours. Andorra-Inuu-Caldea-spa-complex.jpg

At the end of the day, Andorra’s natural beauty tops everything else and it’s only something you can really experience by visiting (but I’ll post some pictures to hold you over until you get there)!!!!!

The Look For Less: Taylor Hill

Hey guys, I want to start out by saying the Victoria Secret Fashion Show was incredible, an 11 out of 10 for sure. All of the models looked stunning. Taylor Hill is a model I have recently become obsessed with and I just couldn’t resist searching her up on google. Something I learned on my google excursion was not only does she look AMAZING strutting down the runway, but walking down the street too!! I really loved her street style, it’s amazingly casual but absolutely gorgeous. I looked on a couple websites trying to find her looks but I had little to no luck. I then made the executive decision that the world need to see not only her looks (for less), but other celebrities too. With that all said, this will be a new little segment. You can comment celebrities you want me to do next and I’ll find some of their looks for less. Hope you enjoyyy xo.

Me Before You

Many of you are probably familiar with this title. That’s maybe because it’s a New York Times bestseller or maybe it’s because Me Before You is a major motion picture. Either way Me Before You was one of the best, if not the absolute best books I have ever read. You are truly touched by the story of Louisa Clark and Will Traynor. Louisa is an optimistic, bubbly, fun loving, jokester that you yourself will instantly want to be your best friend. For me personally, It’s always hard to find the perfect book but reading Me Before You I such a hard time putting it down. 9780143124542-1.jpg

An Alaskan Adventure

Not many people I know have gone to Alaska, in fact when I sent someone a snapchat on a plane with the Alaskan geo-tag they asked “What is there even to do?” Now, I am reassured A LOT. From boat tours and Denali park to ATV riding and gold panning I was never bored. Although I had fun doing all of these activities, my favorite was the helicopter ride up to Punchbowl Glacier.  There is a high altitude Iditarod training camp, and I got the opportunity to go dog mushing. This was through Alpine Air Inc. The people are amazing and have everything perfectly planned out. They give you a rain jacket, thin snow pants, boots, gloves and sunglasses. The only thing I would recommend bringing is a warmer jacket to go under. Is it a little pricy, but 100% worth it.

Alaska is an extremely mountainous and beautiful state and seeing it through a different perspective is something I will never forget.

P.S. I have created an instagram, which is @completelyclaireblog. I will be posting more pictures from trips and such. Woot woot for travel!!!

June 2016 Favorites

Hey guys, so it being the end of the month I am doing my first ever monthly favorites blog post yay! Starting off with hair I love the L. Erickson Ponytail Holders. I know that in the summer I wear my hair up more. Not only that, but these hair ties are perfect for working out and sports, I wear these hair ties at my lacrosse tournaments at they keep my hair up all day. My favorite asset of these hair ties are they SO easy to take off, and my hair never gets knotted up in the hair tie. Yankee Candles Clean Cotton Fragrance Spheres is something I have recently became obsessed with. It’s perfect for just putting in your room or a cup holder of the car to make it smell amazing. Yankee obviously has other scents that probably smell good too but I love the fresh smell of their clean cotton scent. Keeping with the fragrance theme a perfume that I love is the Tory Burch My First Fragrance. Simply put, it smells so good and is perfect for a night out. A summer trend that I definitely wear a lot is rompers. Typically I will buy my rompers from Apricot Lane Boutique, but unfortunately that’s not in every state. I think Tobi could be a good alternative to Apricot Lane for Rompers. Staying hydrated is always an giphyimportant task during the summer months and S’well does a very good job at keeping your cold drinks cold. Not only that but these bottles keep the hot drinks hot. There is so many designs and colors I can’t even pick my favorite. Hope you guys enjoyed my first monthly favorites THANKS (:

A summer beauty must

imgresYou are constantly reminded during the summer months how important sunscreen is. For an everyday glow with light natural coverage (and 30 SPF, how convenient!) I use NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum. I absolutely adore this product for a cleaner looking face. It doesn’t get cakey and helps moisturize. The one way I would describe it would be what they put in the product description “Your skin – almost bare, but better”. With that being said this is a product that I wouldn’t use going out to dinners, parties and such. I want emphasize the light coverage part. I know that for going out, I would surely want more coverage. Definitely use if you’re looking for a daytime coverage, this is perfect!
