Oh Canada! Photo Journal

Hi Loves,

Remember that time I went to Canada? No? That might be because I never got around to posting my photo journal. Better late than never right? My trip to Canada was a girls trip in the summer of 2016 with my mom, my aunt, and my cousin. We left at 5 am and drove up to Niagara falls, spent some time there then drove over to Toronto. We were in Toronto for a couple of days (I searched for Drake the entire time). We ate some amazing food and saw some pretty cool art. Then we drove over to Montreal where my cousin and I shared our first legal drink, ate some more amazing food, and saw some of the city’s history. When it was time to leave Canada we had one more adventure back in New York before we returned home. We stopped and went hiking then rafting, which are two of my favorite activities. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Delicious Findings

Hi Loves,

The last time I went home to the Hudson Valley I got the chance to explore the wide variety of food it offers. My mom and I went on the Hudson Valley Food Tour led by Jennifer Brizzi. She took us to 6 very different restaurants on the Poughkeepsie tour, and each of them was amazingly delicious. This tour had a special focus on local food. It was amazing seeing what restaurants can do with food that comes from just down the road. From sweet potatoΒ pizza to lobster chowder, it was a day of deliciousness.

Philadelphia Fashion

FullSizeRender (34)

Hi Loves,

I went on a little girls trip to Philly last weekend with my Mom, Godmother, and God-sister. We saw historical sites, ate delicious food, and had some awesome girl time. I knew I’d want take some fashion photos with some fab historical sites, so I enlisted my God-sister as my go to photographer.

I love this flowy floral romper that I picked up at Lit Boutique on Newbury Street, it’s super comfortable, cold shoulder, and has pockets! It was perfect for wandering the streets of Philly exploring and learning about some of the history of our great country!

Warehouse Sale Survival Guide

Hi Loves,

We all know that shopping is our cardio, it’s our addiction, our way of life, but when does a shopper truly get to show off all their skills? At the coveted warehouse sale!

If you’ve watched one of my favorite moves of all time,Β Confessions of a Shopaholic,Β you know the iconic warehouse sale scene in which two women are fighting over a pair of Gucci boots. I can say that I have never seen two people physically fighting over one item, I have seen people plot out strategiesΒ so that they get the best items possible. Most strategies include, but are not limited to: Dragging your tired and caffein deprived significant other with you to hold everything you want to buy, going with a group of 5 people so you all can look for things for each other, hoarding anything that looks at all like something you might someday wear even if its 3 sizes too big or small, passive aggressively starring down another person holding something that they want, and bringing an empty stroller to load clothes into without them getting tired.

Hi Loves,
April is the month of all cancers and lavender is the color that represents all cancers, so yesterday night my club Her Campus hosted our Love for Lavender event. It was at a local venue called Umbria Prime, there was good food, fun music and awesome raffle prizes! Our event coordinator did an amazing job putting together this event so I have to give her major props!! There was lavender things everywhere, balloon, yummy lavender gum balls, and even a purple carpet! Some of the things we had to win were Red Sox tickets that were a $500 value, TJMaxx gift card, TD Garden cookie jar with Celtics towels, and then there is what I won, a basket full of candy and an amazing mug!!
