Happy New Year!

It’s time to say goodbye to 2013, you’ve been very good to me! I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store. Tonight I will be ringing in 2014 in Paris. If you had told me a year ago that this is where I would be I would have never believed you. Goes to show all you can achieve in a years time. ❤ I wish you all a safe and hopefully memorable night, and I’ll be seeing you soon 2014…

Fall Break Part III -From Roma to Firenze We Go

I recently got busy with school (yes I do have class and homework for all you wondering) so I haven’t had a chance to finish sharing the rest of my fall break adventures. After Rome the girls and I took a train to Florence where we stayed for two nights. Florence is a lot more laid back and relaxed in comparison to Rome. It’s a lot smaller of a city and the people there are in even less of rush. But we didn’t complain we were very much looking forward to relaxing. Rome was a nonstop trip, with no down time. There’s just so much to see and do. Here are some photos from our last afternoon in Rome before we left for Florence.

Interviews & Some New Friends



Today I had another internship interview. This time it was for a PR position at company that uses the various media outlets to provide developing countries news media. Being abroad and away from my closet isn’t the easiest thing when you need to look professional. But I was able to bring some key pieces (like my blazer) and put this little outfit together. However, I was drenched by the time I showed up because it started to pour on my way there.

This is Molly, who is one of my new friends here in Prague. She’s from Colorado and just has one of the most positive attitudes. (I really like that about her). She is very down to earth and always smiling – it’s kind of contagious in that way. We thought it was so funny that we both were color coordinated for our different internship interviews (and no we did not plan it) but we had to show you.

Below is Molly’s partner in crime Alanna and together they are the cutest thing. The two of them share a passion for hula-hooping, and spreading good vibes. These two are a hoot and a half (as my mom would say). They sure make learning Czech a lot more fun. Part of the program here in Prague we are required to learn Czech and so for the next to weeks that’s pretty much all we will be doing. Let me tell you it is not easy! But I’ve enjoyed getting to meet so many different people from all over the states.

Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday! Me and my roommates took a trip to IKEA. I have never used so much public transportation in my life. Where I’m from we hop in our cars and take off to where ever we wish to go. Here, we had to take the tram to the metro and then a bus. I know understand why people here travel lite. Cause we had to carry all out shit that we bought at IKEA all that way back.

Retail Therapy

I went for a spin at Nordstroms to buy a few things for my trip and this was the result.

I got a new sweater  (I love loose comfy sweaters), an infinity scarf [David & Young], a good pair of boots (i’ll be walking A LOT), a new pair of black skinny jeans (cause they go with anything) and lastly there is my cute new Nikon J3. Which I am so in love with. I got this camera for my trip because the quality is amazing, its light and compact, plus you can change the lenses.

I plan to take a lot of pieces that can easily be mixed and matched. Especially since I will be gone for so long and can only take ONE XL suite case.

BTW I suggest anyone traveling go purchase a tiny traveling scale. They are very inexpensive, this one was about $10. I have heard so many horror stories from friends and family that were traveling in Europe and had to pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars in fees because their luggage was 5lbs over weight.

I’d love to hear any packing suggestions or if you have any questions send ’em my way!
