Last week, I was stuck in quite the funk in London. Getting rejected from job applications and drowning in depths of schoolwork, I needed to get away ASAP. I booked a quick trip to Rome, and decided to take a bit of a risk – I would travel alone. While I’ve traveled alone in the States before, this trip was my first voyage abroad sans companions, and I’m so glad I finally bit the bullet and went for it.
The weekend in Rome was restorative, immersive, and even a bit meditative. Plus, it was filled with sunshine and plenty of pasta and stunning ancient ruins. Since I didn’t have any real-life friend with me, I thought I’d bring YOU, my internet friends, with. Being the obnoxious millenial I am, I vlogged the whole trip. Check out all my food porn and painful attempts at Italian! Can’t wait for my next solo trip; I may be newly addicted.
Headed to London during the wintertime? I’m sharing a new video packed with my winter essentials and all the things that help me cope through the dark, cold days here in the Big Smoke. Some things are a little bit frivolous, while others are must-haves, but they all get me through the London winter.
I link all the products in the video description box if you’re interested in a specific item. Also, feel free to leave me any questions in the comments! Happy to help you with your visit or move to the greatest city in the world.

While waxing poetically about London brunch spots isn’t new to this piece of the internet, I thought I’d share this week’s breakfast-but-better outing in vlog format instead of my typical written style. It was quite the special occasion taking us to the height of London’s beauty, so I thought a video more befitting its visual splendor. The food was good, but not amazing, so I don’t have too many food porn shots to share with you, just breathtaking ambiance. Plus you get to see me squirm and act extremely awkward on camera – so it’s a win-win!
Happy Sunday, internet friends! How were your weekends? Mine was packed with schoolwork, getting festive, brunching, and as usual, eating my way through London. Since my weekends tend to be fairly busy and full of actually seeing different neighborhoods around London instead of just studying on campus, I thought I’d start vlogging more frequently and take you along with me. Twinkling with holiday lights and holly, the city is so beautiful right now with all of the Christmas decorations, so I can’t get enough of it! This vlog is literally from this very weekend (I’m procrastinating and edited it instead of doing my theory reading – oops!), so I hope you enjoy! Let me know if there are any other types of videos you’d like to see or places I should check out here in Londontown. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
Since my longtime friend Stacy was visiting London for work this past weekend, we just had to reunite across the pond, so I could show her around my new home. Plenty of full-on touristing, shopping, selfie-taking and eating (duh) took place, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to try vlogging. Vlogging has always intrigued me, as I love following other YouTubers on their travels and even just in the day-to-day. Since I actually had plans other than studying or attending class, I thought it would be an appropriate opportunity to give it a go. Shoutout to Stacy for putting up with all my annoying filming 🙂 Let me know your thoughts and if you’d like to see more vlogs in the future. I found it quite fun, and hey it’s more productive then just posting to Snapchat.
