College Apartment Bedroom Tour

I moved into an apartment in June and have been slowly putting my bedroom together since then. I wanted to incorporate all of the special pieces I found while abroad and while still having a defined style to the room. Filling the room was a fun process and now it truly feels like my unique space! I'm excited to share it today...

Weekend Reading

Thank goodness for weeks that fly by quickly! I'm excited for another weekend of fall fun. Here are some things that caught me eye this week...

1. A friend recommended I try Thrive Market to get health food and organic products for less. Their prices are unbeatable!

2. Love seeing a blog feature one of my favorite towns in Maine – Camden!

4. Love this uplifting story on an adventurous 91 year-old who went skydiving.

5. Next time I go back to Spain, I really want to road trip around to some of the picturesque smaller towns like the ones on this list.

Have a great weekend!

October Weekends

October is quickly becoming one of my favorite months of the year. The foliage is in full swing and the temperatures are cooling down but still bearable. I find myself wanting the month to last longer so I can experience this beautiful time of year in all of my favorite places – the White Mountains, Boston, New York...

10 Things About Me

I always enjoy blogs that have a little bit of a personal feel to them, where you feel like you get to know the blogger through their posts. I'm a little shy (in person and online!) but I figured I'd share a couple things about myself today. So here goes!

1. I attend the University of New Hampshire and my major is Communication with a concentration in Business. I'm minoring in Spanish and spent last semester studying in Granada, Spain – best four months of my life!

2. I was a ballet dancer for almost ten years but recently decided to move on. It was a sad decision because it's been such a part of my life, but I'm looking forward to having more time to dedicate to other things I love like yoga and Pilates.

3. I work in social media at my university, which is a great experience because it's a field I can see myself in one day.

4. I'm very family-oriented and love hanging out with my parents and sister. My sister is my best friend!

5. My all-time favorite TV show is Gilmore Girls – who doesn't love that show?! So excited for the revival.

6. I can't decide if my favorite season is summer or fall. During those sunny, warm months I swore I was a summer person but now I can't deny the magic of fall!

7. I became a coffee drinker in Spain (even though I swore I never would be!). My go-to is an almond milk latte and my guilty pleasure is super sweet, flavored iced coffee... But nothing can beat Spanish café con leche.

8. My friends always trust me to get places because I love to explore, never mind driving, and always look at maps so I know where I'm going!

9. I would happily spend an entire day by myself – sometimes I prefer being alone!

10. I love to hike and my favorite person to hike with is my dad. We hiked the tallest mountain in Maine (and the end of the Appalachian Trail), Mount Katahdin, the summer before I went to college and we explored the White Mountains this summer.

Now... tell me about yourself!

New England Road Trips

I love road trips – my ideal weekend would be spent driving a couple of hours to a new little town and exploring the coffeeshops, stores, and neighborhoods. I happen to think New England is the ideal region for road trips, because there is so much you can reach within just a few hours. Whether you're looking to spend a weekend in the city or the country, the coast or the mountains, New England has it!

Accessories I Wear Every Day

My  style has gotten a lot simpler as I've gotten older. I mostly wear neutrals and then add classic accessories for interest. Here are some of my favorite go-to pieces that I've wear all the time...
