Fiesole, a hidden gem of Florence.

Tucked into the hills surrounding Florence is the small town of Fiesole. Fiesole is for the seasoned Florence traveler, who isn’t just passing through for a couple of days, but spending a good amount time getting to intimately know the city.  It’s a nice change of pace from the center of Florence, which is always […]

New adventures in my old city.

I know, you must be thinking…having been to Florence so many times, how can I possibly not yet be bored with it all? And while that answer is simple, because I unconditionally love the city, I did get to try out a bunch of new things this trip. Florence is a place that can’t even be […]

My favorite gelato spots in Florence.

My goal for my next trip to Firenze is to eat more gelato. Seriously. I have this hilarious habit of filling up on pasta, cheese, or pizza, causing me to short change gelato – which is a crime. This past vacation I only got it twice during my whole trip! Unacceptable. Here is my short […]

Exploring the Rose Gardens and San Miniato al Monte.

After visiting Santa Croce on our last day in Florence, we still had a packed day of exploring ahead of us. It was early enough in the morning for us to go do something before lunch, so we walked over Ponte all Grazie into San Niccolò. Through the local neighborhood and up the hill leading […]

Soaking up the sun in Santa Croce.

The winter blues really got the best of me this year. Even though the snow was modest and didn’t completely paralyze the city of Boston, I still felt this looming empty gray feeling consume me. It was challenging to feel any kind of inspiration all winter long. Either it was too cold to go out […]

Finding inspiration through abstract.

I know. I have been on a small hiatus lately, but it was much needed. After the absolutely dreadful year that 2016 was, I wanted to spend the last few weeks doing literally nothing. I love writing here and taking pictures but sometimes I put so much stress on myself if I don’t constantly commit or […]

Horsing around in Western Mass.

Ever since my best friend, Natalie, and I watched the Unbranded documentary up on Netflix…we have been obsessed with becoming the main characters of the film, and of course we’ve become obsessed with horses. In an attempt to fulfill our wildest fantasies of riding horseback from Mexico to Canada, we spent a nice brisk Saturday morning […]

Staying cozy in Hollis, New Hampshire.

Mid-October was peak season in New Hampshire for foliage. We received a lot of rain in the coming days that unfortunately quickly took all the bright beautiful colors away. However about half of the trees hadn’t turned yet, so some areas got super lucky with another wave of autumn foliage. This second round wasn’t as […]

Monet, Modern, and the MFA

I started early on my New Year’s resolution this year. It was about time I started making more time for me. Doing things that I enjoy; travel, food, day plans, even if it means enjoying an experience solo. I must say, it’s been working pretty well and my new found freedom has allowed me to try […]

Estadio Tapas in Washington D.C.

Ever since I came back from Portland, Oregon in late August, I have had this weird craving for tapas. It may be because I am obsessed with the cute portioned sized plates, developed my love of specialty gin drinks (which every exceptional tapas place has), or have just been severely in the mood for Spanish flare.

Fall into New Hampshire.

It’s been a beautiful fall season in New England, and the foliage has been incredible. This is really the first fall where I have truly appreciated where I live and what I get to experience every autumn. For the past few weekends I have budgeted out some time to wonder into new places and see […]

Last minute surprise in Washington D.C.

This past summer has been a complete reorganization; job, apartment, personal life, you name it. But I’m not the only one feeling the lasting chaos from summer, so is my sister, who is moving all the way from Tucson, Arizona to Washington D.C. She has also been graced with finding a new place to live, […]
