One Last Semester || Back-to-School Essentials

Supplies c/o Office Depot

So, here it goes. One last semester of undergrad until I am launched into the world of 9-5's and complete independence. I can't say exactly how I feel about finishing this chapter of my life, but I am determined to make this semester one of the best yet. This all starts with setting goals, getting organized, and preparing myself for the work that is to come. 

With six classes, two jobs, and one big city to tackle this semester, I cannot afford to neglect organization. The easiest way to get started is with some back-to-school supply shopping, a.k.a. every girl's favorite school-related summer activity. I recently picked up these adorable supplies from Office Depot's new collection that both satisfy my blogger aesthetic needs and keep everything organized for a successful semester:

Pursuing Your Passion

Thursday, August 20, 2015


One of my favorite things about living in New York is having the opportunity to meet people with passion. Amongst the city's crowds are individuals living their dreams, or fighting for them. Since moving here for college, I've had the chance to learn from many of these people and their stories, both in and out of the fashion industry. It is because of conversations like these that I measure success in happiness, in being able to live out the things for which I am passionate.

Travel Diary || Quebec

Sunday, August 16, 2015


As a slice of Europe in North America, Quebec City preserves a French charm that lends itself to tranquil exploration. My cousin Emily and I recently made a drive up to the historic city with our grandfather to kick off our last years of college. It was my first time visiting, but it surely will not be my last. From the colorful cobblestone streets to unique dining options, there are countless reasons to love Quebec City.

A Not-So Grey Day

Tuesday, August 11, 2015


Hello from Quebec! My cousin and I took a short road trip yesterday to explore the cutest Canadian city with our grandfather as an end-of-summer vacation. The European atmosphere is absolutely lovely here, and I cannot wait to share photos with you. Until then, in the spirit of Quebec's unfortunate rainy forecast for today, this post is all about giving a little life to those cloudy days.

Seeking Adventure (+ Making Some Changes)

Sunday, August 9, 2015


I am approaching two years of blogging this fall, along with my last semester of college. 2015 has no doubt already been a game-changer for me, so there is no telling what is still to come in its second half. Between traveling across continents and landing the most unstructured, but exciting job I've had thus far, I have a new pursuit in mind to finish off the year -- adventure.

The Simplest Remedy

Sunday, August 2, 2015


I am a compulsive dweller. My mind tends to spend excessive amounts of time on the past, thinking of all the possible should haves and could haves that will never exist. In these moments I find that the most realistic remedy, as cliche as it sounds, is to make a mental list of "the small things".
