“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you are going to mess it up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up… So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe

Apartment Style

A few weeks ago I moved into a new apartment and have a bit more space (yay!), so I’ve been thinking a lot about what I can do and how I can decorate. I bought my first couch, and have been making a bit of progress (see an example on Instagram here), but have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest trying to figure out the final touches. Below are a few examples of what I’ve been loving – gallery walls, greenery, gold frames, and long white curtains! Follow me on Pinterest here for more and stay tuned for updates!

Winter is Coming!

Thanksgiving is over already (I can’t believe it!), everyone is putting up the holiday decorations, and it’s definitely getting colder outside. While I didn’t do any post-Thanksgiving shopping this year (but have you seen the J.Crew sale?!), there are a few things on my (winter is coming) wish list!


Sweater / Scarf / Coat / Earrings / Jeans / Duffel Bag
Sweater Dress / Hat / Gloves / Sweater / Flats / Necklace

Back to Paris

Once I knew I was spending a good bit of time in London, I also knew I couldn’t be so close to Paris and not just make a quick visit back (these photos from my previous Paris trip are still one of my favorite things). So as a reward after finishing finals, I took a day trip to Paris via train, got in around 10am, had a croissant and espresso, walked for a bit, then stopped for fromage et un verre de rosé, and wandered around some of my favorite spots (see them in this previous post). I also visited an area that was new to me – Montmartre – and was able to enjoy Palais Royal (below) for the first time (it was being renovated the last time I was there). Before getting back on the train to head back to London, I stopped in Angelina on Rue de Rivoli for their famous hot chocolate. It was an absolutely glorious day.

The Cotswolds

If you are not already familiar with the area (a lot of bloggers have been there recently, it seems!), the Cotswolds is an area in south central England stretching from Stratford-upon-Avon to Bath. I knew it was an area I wanted to explore and I was lucky to get out there on a couple different occasions while in England. First, on a Sunday, I took a bus tour out to four villages with a friend from school (thanks to Merritt for the idea!) – we visited Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Stow-on-the-Wold.

Summer in London

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know I spent most of my summer living in London. I was there for school (studying International Law at King’s College London), but did manage to have an amazing time exploring as much of the city as possible. Thankfully, I was done with class each day at 2:30 and then would immediately head out – there are too many places I loved to list them all, but I thought I would highlight a few of my very favorite spots! I did have the chance to get out of London and visit the Cotswolds, Oxford, Bath, and Paris – but will share more about those stops later!
