Serifos Greece




 I'm slowly getting caught up with my vacation photos and thought I would share with you my first stop on my Greece trip, Serifos. Serifos is a very small island in Greece and definitely not the most popular vacation island in Greece. However, Shawn and I really wanted to stayed at COCO-MAT Eco Residences Hotel in Serifos and we truly felt like we were on a deserted island. I will make sure to updated you with some more photos of our hotel if you didn't catch some already on my Instagram-@syd.hoff



Shawn and I decided to explore the small island of Serifos and climbed all the way to the top of this adorable little town. I would highly suggest climbing to the top because the views were absolutely breathtaking.

If you follow me on Instagram -@syd.hoff you will know I've been wearing a ton of Shein bathing suits. I love these swimsuits because they are super cheap. I only wear pieces of clothing once or twice, so I hate to spend a fortune on clothing. Their prices are ridiculously amazing. Shein also has the biggest selection (you could honestly spend hours on the site) and not to mention the most fun, hilarious prints! I was getting a lot of questions as to where I purchased my swimsuits so I made sure to link some for you guys. 

I was also receiving a ton of questions about the Shein website in general so I wanted to let you in on some things I've learned. Shein takes a bit longer to ship items, compared to most companies. To be safe I would give yourself a month (sometimes a little less) for something to arrive. ALWAYS read reviews for each item. I always like to give my honest review for each item because it really helps you with what size to order. Not everything fits the same so it's super helpful to read reviews. I'm a small for the most part and I usually order smalls, but it's been great to read when everyone says it fits big or super small. My sunflower bathing suit for example I bought in a medium because everyone said it fit really short. Considering I'm a tall lady I was so happy I ordered medium instead of small because the medium fit perfectly. I may write a full blogpost on the website, but I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on a few things before ordering.

Cottage Ice Cream


I was at the cottage last week and went into town about 3 times to get ice cream. Part of the cottage experience is heading into the adorable cottage towns and eating all the yummy blue bubblegum Kawartha Dairy ice cream.

What's in my Beach Bag?


If you have been following me on my Instagram @syd.hoff you know I just got back home from Greece. I was island hoping the last two weeks and had such an amazing time going from beach to beach. I thought after spending all that time on the beach I would share with you what I kept in my beach bag.


1. A solid pair of sunglasses
2. Hawaiian Tropic spray sunscreen (Shawn's favourite)
3. Hawaiian Tropic weightless face sunscreen
4. Old Navy bikini bag (to store those wet bikinis)

5. Water (I'm always drinking water)
6. Banana (I'm always hungry and always snacking on fruit)

7. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration weightless body sunscreen (my favourite)
8. Tangle Teezer Hairbrush (my hair gets so tangled coming in and out of the water)
9. Hair Elastic (If it's too windy or too hot I always need to whip my hair up)
10. Poppy&Peonies bag (great to put money, hotel key etc.)
11. Blistex SPF lip moisturizer

12. Of course a solid beach bag (I love longer straps to easily throw over my shoulder)
