Self Care on a Time Crunch: 3 Quick Steps to Add to Your Beauty Routine

On a typical weekday, very few of us have time to stop and take care of ourselves. Between work, school and a social life, must of us would call it a good day if we even have time to wash our hair.

6 Must-Have Items In My Travel Bag

While I’ve always been a bit of a frequent flyer, this semester I have definitely accumulated a lot more miles under my belt. I’ve learned how to be way more of a savvy packer thanks to smaller European airlines and their sometimes ridiculous regulations over what size bags I can bring on-board.

Study Abroad Log: Croatia

This past weekend I traveled to Split, Croatia for an amazing weekend with new and old friends!

We started the weekend off with a bang – zip-lining in the Croatian mountains! This was such a surreal and beautiful experience and I am so glad we splurged a bit …

Study Abroad Log: Parma

Last weekend I headed out with my classmates on a school trip to Parma and Northern Italy.

Study Abroad Log: Paris

This past weekend I took a very special weekend trip with my best friends from home. After a quick hour flight from Milan, I found myself in the “city of lights and love” for the weekend – Paris! I’ve been wanting to visit Paris since I was little, and I have been counting down the days this semester to this weekend. I spent the weekend eating delicious French food and taking in all the sights! We saw Notre-Dame Cathedral, visited the Louvre Museum and ate crepes at the Eiffel Tower. We also enjoyed a boat tour at sunset on Friday …
