Trip to Great Britain

A few weeks ago I went with my university to Britain! My art history class and I embarked on a 10 day journey to experience the art and industry of England first hand. The freezing winds of Newcastle and the hurricane-like rain of Birmingham did not stop us from exploring the sites that we had studied in class. All in all, an interesting trip but nonetheless very fun and educational! As it should be.

Here are a few pictures of the small adventures my Dad and I went on while he was here visiting in Lugano. He was lucky to have beautiful weather almost the whole duration of his stay which made walks around the lake so relaxing and fun. I don't tend to go downtown that often so it was nice to explore again; it definitely helped to remind me how lucky I am to live and study in such a beautiful place!

I'm so glad my Dad had the opportunity to come and visit me here. It's such a beautiful place that I've been so anxious to share with my friends and family from back home.

Our Trip to Rome

The following weekend, my Dad and I went to visit Rome. It was such an amazing city with so much to see; we missed so much during our short stay. None the less, it was amazing to see all of the famous paintings, sculptures and buildings that are centuries old. It never fails to amaze me.

A Weekend in Milan

My dad recently made the long journey to visit me at my university in Switzerland. During his two week stay, we went on two weekend trips, one to Milan and the other to Rome. Here are some pictures from our trip to Milan....

In these pictures, my scarf is from the GAP and my jacket is from Calvin Klein.

Senior Prom 2013

My prom dress was from Nordstrom by the brand Lush. It wasn't really supposed to be worn as a prom dress but I loved the pattern and the simplicity of it; I'm not really one for those typical, chiffon dresses. I really liked it, it was a super comfy jersey/cotton material and easy to move around and dance in. Plus I'll be able to wear it later with a comfy sweater over it and sandals for a more casual look.

Huge Collective Haul

Hi! Long time, no talk. My blog has definitely taken a backseat in my life these past couple months. Hopefully I get back into it as time moves on.

While I've been MIA from blogging I went shopping a few times and have acquired quite a few new things. This haul spans from the after-Christmas sales up until a few days ago. I definitely did not buy all this at once!

My new coach bag! This is part of a Christmas gift from my step-Mom and my Dad.

This is from my most recent shopping trip. The navy utility jacket is from Nordstrom ($59) and the other three sweaters were purchased by my boyfriend for our anniversary (Forever21 - $17.80, Nordstrom - $10, Forever21 - $17.80)

The checked shirt and the black rain jacket are both from Target (don't remember price), the two striped shirts are from Forever21, and the green utility jacket is from JCPenny.

The grey and white sweater and the zebra t-shirt are both from Forever21, the bicycle t-shirt is from JCPenny, and the three scarves are from CottonOn.

Overall I bought a lot of nice things and am very happy with all my purchases. I'll likely be doing outfit posts with them in the near future.
