The Edge of Seventeen, 2016

While in Rome, I had a lot of boy troubles (are you shocked?) and my friend Clarissa told me about the movie The Edge of Seventeen. She told me she absolutely loved it and after I was a little sad about a boy, she told me to watch it. I didn't want to watch it while over there, but I knew my friend Alexandra would love it too. So I waited until I got back to the states and tonight we finally Reboxed it! I LOVED it.









I don't really know how to summarize it in a way that makes sense, but it will definitely make you feel better if you're having any kind of trouble in your life.

I highly recommend! It might be a new favorite of mine - I'm going to buy it next time I get the chance!

Have you seen it?

Europe pt. 4: Florence, Italy

I figured I should start this up again! I've looked through my pictures so many times at this point, it almost makes me feel like I didn't take enough! It feels so good to have all of these, though. It makes me both sad and happy, knowing that I've been all these places and have these memories but it's all over!

Alright so, Firenze! We spent 2 weeks here, doing an intensive language course, traveling around, and just getting used to the Italian culture. I loved it so much, but I feel like I couldn't really spend more than a month here. I mean, I can't really say that, because I definitely probably could, but it's a small city!

It was a wonderful start to the semester and it's so weird to look through these because we all didn't really know each other that well and now we're all super close! Here are some photos of the streets, my first gelato (that was a complete rip off and we didn't even know it), the beautiful Ponte Vecchio, Michelangelo's David, the Duomo, the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum, the Gucci Museum, organic pizza and wine, and Piazzale Michelangelo.

















Have you ever been to Florence? It's pretty magical but also calm!

Here are my pasts posts if you'd like to have a look: London, Venice, Siena

I'm back!

Hey everyone!! Sorry it's been so long since I've updated - I was enjoying traveling so much, I didn't want to spend to much time on my computer. I got back to the states a week ago and I'm feeling all kinds of emotions! I do have a lot of time though, so I'll spend time writing about my experiences and posting photos.


In the mean time, this picture is of me walking around my favorite city! I miss it so much. I've been crying quite a bit!

I hope you're all doing well!

La La Land: BTS

Did you all see La La Land over the holidays? So good, right?! My friend and I hated the ending though, it made us so mad! I love these behind-the-scenes photos with Damien Chazelle.

Stress + happiness

**
Hey! Just wanted to check in. I took this photo 2 weeks ago during Spring Break. I went with my friend Abbie to Berlin, Athens, and Mykonos. It was SO fun! Mykonos was so beautiful, but it was also so cold and the island was pretty dead. We wanted to spend more time on the beach, so it was a bummer it was cold! One day were were kind of bored because of how dead it was, so I got a tattoo! How cool of a story is that?

Right now I'm kind of stressed because of school but also because in a month from tomorrow I'll be heading back to the states. I think I shed a tear while typing that... I'm just going to get done everything I need to do and enjoy every second of being here. Which I already am, but it's s cool because I've never felt such a balance of stress and happiness at the same time. I think to myself, yeah I'm berried in homework, but I'm also living in Rome... so...

Kendall

I saw this outfit pop up that Kendall Jenner wore recently and I'm obsessed! I love how she tucked her shirt into her shorts and I love how the ankles are still attached to the shorts. I'm also really loving how the shirt is ripped on the sleeve! Winner outfit, I'd say.



What do you think? I would ask where you think each piece is from, but there's no chance of me pulling any of this off, so let's not get my hopes up.

Global view

"People who don't travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what's infront of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live."

I've been thinking about this quote a lot lately - this thought has come up in many conversations I've had!

Capri, Italy

I realize I'm lagging a bit with my travel posts, but I thought I'd put a little something about what I did this weekend! We went to Pompeii, Capri, and Naples. We hiked up Mount Vesuvius, laid on a beach in Capri, took a chair lift to the top of a mountain, and celebrated St. Patrick's Day in the most fun way. Here are some photos from Capri, because I'm still in awe of how beautiful it was!






Hope your weekend was amazing as well! Here's to another Monday ;)

21!

My birthday was on March 11! It was absolutely the best birthday I've ever had. I was hesitant about being in Italy for my 21st, but there's no way I could replicate all that I did last Saturday back in the states. I went on a bike ride through the countryside during the day, then at night we went to a speakeasy that a friend recommended to us, and then da club. I won't go into too much detail... but it was crazy fun.



This photo was taken the night before, because we went to the Trevi Fountain and I threw 2 coins in and made a wish at midnight! These are my best friends here in Rome!

Hope you're all doing well. I am!!!

International Women's Day

Sorry I didn't get a chance to say this yesterday - Happy International Women's Day! I'm so glad I had the chance to spend it in Rome. There were Rallies, mimosa flowers were handed out and sold all around, there was so much love, positivity, and bright colors. It was such a fun day! (A little frustrating because there was a transportation strike, so I couldn't get to work.) I hope you all celebrated yourselves and the other women in your life as well!



You're a strong, smart, confident, funny, beautiful, amazing woman and you should be proud!

Cozy and elegant

It's been quite some time since I've posted a dream room of mine! If you know me, you know that I spend 90% of my time looking on Zillow, NakedApartments, Pinterest, the app Home, and so much more. I LOVE looking for my future apartments and homes. I usually question myself multiple times a day about why I didn't go into interior design.

Here's a beautiful home I found online, located in Tampa, Florida. The owner's name is Shay and she's kind of my spirit animal. You can read an interview about her and her home here! I love all the little details everywhere - the lights above the island, the way the photos are hanging on the walls, the color scheme. Here are some photos of the first floor:












I love how light, chic, and home-y it is. It's hard to get a home to feel like all of that in one!

Photos from The Every Girl - brb while I scroll through this website for the rest of the day.
