Spots of Spring

                                    There are very few things that scream happiness more than the 
                                    sudden appearance of a warm day, during what would still be considered 
                                    wintertime. And when that happens, you would be silly not to take 
                                    advantage of it and soak in the sun with a new spring look.

Eating your way through Florence

After spending one semester in Florence, I have really become well-acquainted will all of the best eateries around this beautiful city. As it turns out, Florence isn't just an old historic city with lots of famous museums, churches, and monuments. It is also teeming with some pretty amazing food. After all, it is located in Italy, so you really can't have a bad eating experience :)

So, instead of keeping you wondering-I am going to provide you with some of my personal favorite food places, which will keep you occupied starting at breakfast, and all the way until post-dinner treats.

Bonjour Paris

To answer your question-Yes, Paris really is as beautiful as the movies and books make it seem! There is just something so magical about the quaint city streets, with the aromatic scent of fresh baguettes wafting by and the glowing lights of the Eiffel tower in the distance. You can’t help but feel warm and happy inside when you are here. When you make your first step into this dreamy city, I hope you feel the same “ahhh” moment that I felt when I first arrived.

Favorite NYC Coffee Shops

I am constantly on the hunt for cozy, comforting coffee shops in NYC, anytime I need a little escape from the hustle & bustle of the city. Coffee shops have become my designated sanctuary for studying or just simply catching up with a friend. I have picked out a few of my favorite spots in the city, so far. But, after another semester of going to school here, I know my list will become even more extensive.

Strolling through Chianti Vineyards

 It is nearly impossible to make a visit to Tuscany, without making at least one visit to the Chianti vineyards. Most people, including myself, may not realize that Chianti is actually the name of the region famous for a majority of the wine production in Italy (which is where Chianti wine gets its name).

Do you want a PISA me?

We have all seen the classic pictures of people pretending that they are pushing the leaning tower of pisa, kicking it, poking it, licking it, punching it, or even giving birth to it (Yes, I have seen this in action).  But let me tell you-it is not an easy task to get the perfect angle to actually make the photo look somewhat realistic. So, don't be embaressed or surprised when you find yourself taking an usually long time to get your picture....because we all do it!

As the springtime is closely approaching, we all become very eager to transition our wardrobes from cold weather apparel to new, fresh and lightweight clothing to wear during the warmer days ahead. To some people, this could become an arduous task due to difficulty finding the right pieces to reflect their style, or rather they are lacking the funds to support their wardrobe needs/wants. My easy fix to this problem is focusing on small accessories which could be worn with several different looks, instead of looking to purchase an over-abundance of clothing pieces which may very well only be worn once or twice.

One small but very valuable accessory which is often overlooked is a pair of glasses. When you think about it, a person's glasses may very well be the first thing noticed by others, being that it frames one’s eyes. Because glasses are a necessary accessory for some people, much thought often goes into choosing a pair that truly reflects his/her personal style. You can really tell a lot about a person’s style just from simply looking at the frames he/she is wearing.
