Phone Snaps from Athens

We made it!  
The most incredible views.

So many delicious treats, too many to try them all in a few days! 

Thew view from our apartment's balcony.

The beautiful island of Aegina.

More treats!

It's been over a week since we got back from Athens now and it already seems like a distant memory and I am a dreaming of another getaway but I'm not sure we're going to be able to afford another one this year. 

These are just a few quick iPhone/Insta snaps from our 4 day trip that definitely wasn't long enough especially to try all the food that was on offer. I'll be sure to share some more pictures and details from our adventure soon, and I promise it won't be like Sorrento where I never get around to sharing some pictures whoops, although they might still make an appearance on the blog later this year.

The Perfect Pair

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included underwear as compensation.

I like to try and spring clean and refresh my wardrobe at least twice a year and the first time I normally start to to have a clear out is around now when Spring is on the way. 
Over the years I have become much better at parting with things that no longer fit or I'll never wear, but I haven't perfected this yet and I know I always end up hanging on to more than I should. That's why I always like to start my wardrobe spring clean with my underwear drawer! I always find that this is the easiest task to start with as it's far easier to throw away underwear that no longer fits or is too worn than it is a dress that you can't squeeze in to anymore but reminds you of that special occasion. I always feel like I've achieved something after clearing out my underwear drawer and it gives me more motivation to tackle the rest of my wardrobe. 
This year I'm teaming up with Kohl's to help you refresh you're lingerie drawer and make sure it is fully stocked with all the essentials.

You might not consider underwear as an important part of your outfit, but the last thing  you want is to head out of the door in a gorgeous outfit only to find you have this dreaded panty line showing and of course you want your underwear to be comfy too!

My top three must haves:

Nude Underwear - an essential for any sheer or white fabrics where you don't want any colours showing through.

Comfy Underwear (that stays in place) - Most of my underwear is in a neutral colour palette so that it works with most outfits, but when you're wearing things like jeans when colour doesn't matter I like add in some more fun colours (although you won't find anything to crazy bright in my underwear drawer haha). This pair is super comfortable to wear all day and stays in place which is important for gym classes too! I love the lace trim for a girly feel too.
Lace Thongs - I have this pair in the all the classic colours along with a few more and they work well under so many things form fitted dresses to summer playsuits and winter thermals. 

Whatever your personal preference is you'll be sure to find everything to suit your needs at Kohl's with a huge selection of colour, styles and sizes available.
Now is the perfect time time to stock up as Kohl's is offering $10 off a $40 purchase between 3/3-3/16.

Rooftop Views

Victoria Emerson Bracelet (save 25% with code 'fiveminutestyle25'

Happy Monday everyone! Sorry I've been MIA for a couple of weeks, I have had A LOT of things going on, all exciting but taking up so much of my time. 
Last weekend I escaped the craziness though to take a trip to Athens with my best friend and our boys. It was so lovely to see the sun for a few days and enjoy some Greek food. How amazing is the view from the rooftop terrace of the apartment we rented? It was the perfect stop for enjoying a glass of wine whilst the sunset. I'll share some more photos from our trip with you all soon.
