We planned this 6-day East-European adventure pretty early in the semester, so by the time it arrived, I was so excited I could barely contain myself! We flew to Vienna, Austria on Friday afternoon and then took a bus over to Budapest, Hungary early Monday morning, and finally left the beautiful city on Wednesday. This is so far my favorite trip I've been on, and I'm dying to go back to both countries!Read More
Ciao from Roma! A few friends and I decided to spend a weekend exploring the ancient city, and it was one of my favorite trips so far! It got off to a bit of a bumpy start though...I had been sick all week, so Saturday night I decided to take benedryl and head to bed early, hoping I'd feel better the next day for out train at 8 AM......and then I woke up dazed and confused, at 9. oops! Well I raced to the station, and hopped on the next train to meet my friends, and it all worked out in the end!Read More
I get texts and DM's all the time about places to go and places to eat from people visiting New York. After living there for two years, I do know a few places, but to make it easier, I decided to write out a 3-day trip plan for visiting NYC! I won't cover every single thing you could possibly do (because you'd need an entire month to do everything!) but some of the best highlights are in here, as well as a few off-the-tourist-path spots. These are just suggestions! If you really want to visit the Met or spend a day in Brooklyn, do it! It's your trip! But here's my suggested plan:Read More
Ciao! I've had an amazing weekend relaxing at home in Florence, and finally had time to sift through all my photos from Barcelona! We spent two full days exploring the Catalan capital, and eating the most amazing food!! (Seafood is my weakness, and Barcelona has endless amounts!)Read More
Fall is finally upon us (even though Italy hasn't quite caught up...) and since I've been spending hours upon hours researching trends on fashion forecasting websites for my classes, I thought I would make a quick post with a few Fall/Winter trends that are predicted not only for '17, but even '18 & '19 (so you can purchase with confidence that these will be around for awhile)Read More
Ciao! I've been so behind on blogging, but I finally have a weekend where I'm not traveling (and to be honest, it's been wonderful to just relax) but since I have a little extra time, I'll be recapping my trips to France & Spain! First up is my week in Paris and Marseilles (both of which I never wanted to leave!)Read More
Ciao! It's been a wild three weeks here in Florence (it's been three weeks already?!) and we're currently attempting to fit a weeks worth of clothes into one carry-on for Paris and Marseilles (please pray for me), but before heading off to Francia, here's one of my favorite dresses, which was sent to me by Shein!Read More
Ciao from fair Verona. My roommates and I spent the weekend exploring this romantic and beautiful little city, and I can say that none of us wanted to leave it! We visited Romeo and Juliet's house, castles, palaces, gardens, and hiked up to Il Belvedere! Check out a few photos I snapped from the weekend and a full Vlog down below!Read More
Ciao! I've finally settled into my apartment and a routine here in Florence, and shortly after moving in, I took a day trip with about 20 other girls in FIT Florence to Siena and San Gimignano! We loaded up a bus at 9 am and spent about two hours in each city, wandering the streets, seeing piazzas and churches, and of course, eating lots of pizza and gelato! Here are some of my favorite pictures from each city!Read More
Sorry for the lack of posts, over the last two weeks I've been packing up New York and flying across the pond for a semester abroad in Florence, Italy!! Even crazier, school dorms don't exist here, so we sent the first few days juggling orientation and apartment hunting! But that's finally settled, and I've found a beautiful little apartment with four other girls on the South side of the Arno river!Read More
Even though summer is almost over, there's always time to squeeze in another book or two! (and in my case, an 8 hour plane ride to Germany!) A few of these I've already read, and a few of them I'll be ordering for my long-haul flight, but no matter if you're taking a red-eye to Europe, or snuggling in on your couch, these are gerunteed to be great reads!
I've always loved Garance's blog, and her book gives so much insight into her as a person, as well as funny tidbits on everything from style to dating.
I read this a few years ago, and it's great for when you need that pick-me-up in a rut, or just motivation to be a #girlboss!

DVF is an amazing woman, and her newest book shows you why. From her mother's heartwrenching story, to DVF's journey through love, career, family, and finding herself, it will make you rethink the woman you want to be
What are some books you would recommend??
I've passed this little spot for almost a year and never stopped in until I needed a quick brunch spot right before work. This casual little cafe has a gorgeous industrial retro inside, and on a nice day, a huge patio outside that's great for people watching in Union Square, while smelling the fresh lavender from the farmers market only a few blocks away on weekdays!
The menu is clean and classic, Hillary and I chatted at brunch over pancakes, french toast, coffee, and mimosas while sitting on the covered patio on a warm summer day!Read More
