The Best Gelato in Florence

Well, the weather is finally getting warmer and all this sunshine is making me crave the rolling hills of Tuscany, Aperol Spritz on the balcony of my Florence apartment, and, most importantly… Gelato! One of the highlights of living in Italy last year was finishing dinner and asking my roommates to walk across the city to our favorite gelato spots. I made it my mission to try as many places as possible during my stay. Before I dive in ...

Red Rocks Canyon

Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? Good? Great? Awesome. I’m taking a break from my heavy load of homework because I wanted to share some pictures from my recent trip to Vegas! Technically I was staying outside of Las Vegas, in a city called Henderson, with my boyfriend and his family. On Saturday his parents had the idea to drive out to Red Rocks. I had always wanted to go so I was 100% on board with this plan! Here are ...

Tea Bar

Last weekend was my birthday and I decided to head home to Portland for the weekend to celebrate with my family and have a little down time to relax. It was great and now, sadly, I’m back at school and trying not to crumble under my workload and the prospect of finals in only a month. When I was home I took advantage of being back in a city and spent Sunday afternoon getting tea, brunch, and doing some shopping with my friend Zoë. Our first ...

A Visit to Le Marche St George

Just like every Instagram crazy millennial, I have a huge obsession with cafes. I’m that stereotypical girl that doesn’t let anyone eat or drink their food until I have taken a picture of it and I actively seek out restaurants and cafes with rustic and vintage atmospheres. I love latte art and I’m not ashamed. Last week I visited Vancouver, BC for a holiday with my boyfriend. While I was reading an email from my Airbnb ...

But who isn’t stoked for the upcoming holidays?! Before I get into that I wanted to share my all time favorite Fall vacation stop with all of you! Spending the weekend of Halloween at Seabrook has turned into a tradition for my family and I look ...

Il Mercatino Francese Belle Epoque

Happy Monday! Today I’m craving some macarons (just like every other day) and I was thinking about this time last year when I was studying abroad and discovered this awesome market… This weekend is the La Belle Epoque Market in Florence. Also known as “Il Mercatino Francese Belle Epoque.” This market is awesome and I highly recommend not missing out! I went last year when my roommates were off traveling and I was in town alone, ...

My Year Abroad

It’s insane to think that this time exactly one year ago I was boarding a plane by myself for the first time, about to leave North America for the first time, and about to dive headfirst into one of the best years of my life. As soon as I started attending college fairs in high school and receiving numerous brochures from teachers and advisors I looked for two things in a potential university: a location that wasn’t too far or close to home ...
