This Mustard Yellow Cardigan Is The Perfect Piece For Fall

    0
Fall weather is all about pumpkin spice lattes, cute booties, and amazing fall fashion! I’m usually the girl who doesn’t dress herself well and just goes for sweaters that hide her body. But FUCK THAT. I’ve been experimenting with my style and making an effort to really expand my closet and find out what makes me feel beautiful and confident. Good shoes, red lips, and...

Penguins, sharks, and beer pong, oh my

Boy, oh boy.Week 3 was even more of a blur than the last two weeks combined. It's when most of our events planned for us and self-planned event collided. I was on the go 24/7 and I'm pretty sure I wasn't sober for more than 24 collective hours. (Sorry, mom.)SundayWe took a gorgeous scenic drive through Chapman's Peak and stopped to take in the incredible...

Remote Year: One Month Reflection

    1
It’s weird to think that I’ve been traveling for almost 2 months now, and almost all of that has been international. It’s even weirder to think that I’ve been living in Lisbon for five weeks and it completely feels like home. So much so that the idea of moving to Croatia tomorrow fills me with anxiety, and leaves me a little bit sad. Leave Lisbon?...

Friendship breakups are weird and hard

Friendship break ups are a mysterious thing. Unlike regular breakups, where we have rituals, romcoms, cliches, basically a script to follow, friendship breakups are a much murkier proposition.How do you tell a friend that your lives no longer align? That you no longer find the relationship mutually beneficial? You don't dislike the person, you just aren't inclined to spend time or energy to continue to...

The Coast

While almost every place I see on my travels holds value, the coasts and beaches have really continued to be my favourites.  The west coast of Chile was no different.  Concon was the highlight of the day with its smaller but increasingly modern vibes and largely untouched coast.   A place I could see myself returning to visit for a longer stay.   Concon Vina Del...
