  So last summer I studied in Italy and I really immersed myself in every part of the culture… mainly the food! I think you should really enjoy yourself yourself on vacation and this time around I didn’t limit myself a ton but I did make different choices when it came to what I ordered.Continue reading “How to go on vacation and not gain weight”

Back to Capri

You guys are going to think I’m crazy. But remember how I talked about being indecisive and how that was a bit of a struggle? After Como I had planned on going to possibly Switzerland or France but I was going to make a decision based on the best flight deals. (Also I really wantedContinue reading “Back to Capri”

What no one tells you about Solo Travel

I wrote this post about how much I love solo travel and while I want to keep this blog positive, I think it’s only fair to share all sides of that. While I still encourage people to go on at least one solo trip abroad in their lifetime, and I will continue to plan myContinue reading “What no one tells you about Solo Travel”

Ischia

I left Positano and headed to Ischia next for several days before heading to Lake Como. I knew I would be swimming so I didn’t bring my camera so all of these pictures are from my phone! I stayed at a great place by the port without doing any research about the island but IContinue reading “Ischia”

Praiano

  I had never been to Praiano before this summer! I had seen the twinkling lights and even fireworks and was so curious about the town. This trip I went to Praiano during the day for the beach club and at night it’s so pretty! They were having a festival of lights and just drivingContinue reading “Praiano”

Positano Magic

After taking the train from Rome to Naples, I made my way to Positano {my favorite place in Italy} It’s beautiful but more than that, the people make it the best for me.

I remember my friend Zak was helping me load myContinue reading “Packing Light for Rookies”

Why I love Solo Travel

I think solo travel is probably the best gift you could ever give to yourself. And it still surprises me when I receive mixed reactions when someone asks me, “Who are you going with?” “Oh, just me”. I’ve heard it all but I think as you get older, the more self assurance you have, theContinue reading “Why I love Solo Travel”

Rosey Posey

Roses have been on sale lately and I haven’t been able to resist! There’s something about coming home to a house that smells lovely with pretty flowers and they really brighten the place up. This dress was under $20 at Forever21 and I’ve been getting a few pieces for summer since last summer all myContinue reading “Rosey Posey”
