Bluefin Bay in Tofte, MN

Bluefin Bay in Tofte, MN

Two weeks ago, Zach and I celebrated my graduation and the start of summer in Tofte, MN. We wanted a weekend away from the commotion in Madison to simply relax and refresh before the start of summer. After researching the best resorts online, I stumbled across Bluefin Bay, a resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Simply put: it’s a must-visit if you’re planning a trip to Minnesota!

Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark

I never made it to Denmark during my time studying in London. Even though I’ve watched the Prince & Me countless times and studied Hans Christian Andersen’s work, I never got the chance to travel to this place I had heard so many wonderful things about. So when my boyfriend told me he had to travel to Copenhagen for work, I gave it no second thought and booked my ticket.

As I’m laying in bed on my next adventure in Copenhagen, I wanted to finish posting about the second part of my trip to Miami. You can read about the first part of trip here.

A couple of weeks ago, I traveled to Miami Beach with a couple of girl friends for our last Spring Break. We stayed near South Beach at the Catalina Hotel and Beach Club. Honestly, it was one of the best vacations I’ve ever had. With our hotels amenities, like the bamboo and rooftop pools, a free happy hour, and great weather, nothing could have made the trip better.

Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia, PA

A few weeks ago, I spent a long weekend visiting my friend, Mary, in Philadelphia, PA. In just a few days, we managed to eat too much sushi, watch a Mummers Parade, visit historical sites, and shop (a lot). Overall, it was an incredible weekend and I recommend Philly to anyone looking for a getaway.

As I’m heading to Philadelphia for the weekend, I realized this would be a great time to show what I pack in my makeup bag. To me, traveling involves a balance of holy-grail products and new product samples.

I spent the weekend in New York not too long ago. It was cold, colorful and full of yummy food.

The Last Adventure before Goodbye

The Last Adventure before Goodbye

The last few weeks of studying abroad in London flew by me. On top of packing my entire room into two suitcases (a struggle to say the least), I went on one last adventure to Budapest, Ljubljana, Madrid and Mykonos.

A Week in Italy

A Week in Italy

Another week, another adventure. Before I came to London, I knew I had to explore Italy. It has always been a dream of mine to eat endless pasta, pizza and salad. Boy, did that dream come true!
