• Life in NYC: Transitioning to the City

    Moving to NYC has been a dream of mine since I was young. I had a little over a week between moving in and when my training for work started. Coincidentally, my roommates were out of town during this week. So, I had my apartment all to myself. I really had the best transition to the city because I also didn’t have to adjust to living with strangers at the same time. DAY 1 // I met up with my family who currently live in the city. They had planned the best day for us. We checked out Central Park and Columbus Circle. We then went to dinner at The…

  • Daydreaming Vacation Outfits Part II

    Take a look at the first half here. Because I’m planning on two outfits a day, for the second half of VK, I’m going to try to repeat as many pieces as I can. Day 5: Paddle Boarding and Kayaking, Mini Gulf, Casual Dinner at Home Paddle Boarding Outfit Coverup / Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom / Sandals I love this sporty swimsuit and army green is pretty much my favorite color to wear. Day Outfit Headband / Romper / Tretorns How gorgeous is this headband?!?! I built this outfit around the headband. The rest of the ensemble needed to be simple to draw attention to the hair accessory. No need to add another outfit onto the…

  • Daydreaming Vacation Outfits Part I

    These past few days, I’ve been dreaming about the beach vacation my family and I go on every year. One of my favorite parts about getting ready to go is planning out my outfits. Despite not knowing if we’ll be able to go this summer, I’ve started looking around for some fun VK clothes. When I’m shopping for summer vacation outfits, I typically hit up three places to get the main things: Free People, Anthropologie, and Madewell. We usually do something fun and active during the day and then do a nice dinner at night. So, I have two outfits planned for each day. Day 1: The Drive, Lunch, Grocery…

  • Spring Lookahead

    We’ve had about two days that have been over 50 degrees and I’m already ready for Spring. So, I’m getting myself more excited and looking ahead to some of the things I’ll possibly (probably) buy this season. ONE: Vineyard Vines Shorts – I’m not a huge shorts person. As you can see from the rest of the list, I live most of the warm months in dresses and skirts. But, I like to have a pair of classic shorts that I can throw on and I absolutely love these. The pattern is gorgeous and it would add some femininity and zest to a normally super simple outfit. TWO: Marc Fisher…

  • My Outfits When I Went Back to Disney

    I recently took a trip back to Disney to visit some friends and reunite with my roomies. It has been about a year since right smack dab in the middle of my program and I really did miss being in Disney every day. If you would like to read more of my complaints about the real world, take a look at my Transition to Post Grad. And, after just about a month of chillier weather, I was also so excited to get back to the heat of Florida, one of the main reasons I did the program in the first place. Day 1: I wanted something that I could easily…

  • Taking a Trip Home

    I have been home twice so far during my program and they both have left me refreshed and excited to go back to work and, more importantly, warm weather. I am originally from Delaware and am able to experience fall when I go home, which has been nice. I also have siblings who are much younger than I am and it is wonderful to come home and visit with them. I try to stay as present in their lives as possible. This trip was very difficult to plan because I was trying to get all of my days off in a row. My location has a lot of rules when…

  • Breakdown of My First Days of the Disney College Program

    This month has gone by extremely fast. Here’s a breakdown of the move-in, training process, work schedule, and days off. In order to get here, I took the Amtrak auto train. Since I’m from the Philly area, it allowed me to get my car here without putting all of the miles on it. On the train, we had a bed and shower in our cabin – that’s also something I couldn’t get in my Bug. After a somewhat jostled night, I arrived to checkin at my housing complex. My Siblings Waving Me Goodbye I am currently living in Chatham Square with seven other roommates. Beforehand, we were given our apartment…

  • When I am 80 Years Old . . .

    I have always been pretty good at balancing my school work with my other activities and never feel like I am missing out on anything crucial with my friends or any other experiences. I think that is because I am very proactive and I try not to leave any work that I have until the last minute. I am also very realistic with my time. I know that an assignment will take a certain amount of time and I leave myself a slot in order to get it done efficiently. Here, I am not having a more difficult time planning, per say, but I am more aware of the choices…

  • What Kind of Study Abroad Experience Do I Want?

    I am at about the halfway point of my semester abroad and I am really loving it. I am still trying to decide if I want to travel more. Everyone really stressed the importance of traveling on me before I left. The only problem is that I am really loving dorm life here. I find myself not getting very excited when I have a trip planned, although I always have fun. Some of the study abroad girls are traveling to amazing places every weekend, which sounds awesome but that is a lot of time, money, and living out of suitcases. They do get to see new and interesting things and…

  • Scotland Weekend

    One of the things everyone stresses on you when you tell them that you are studying abroad is your need to travel to other countries, especially if you are studying in – or in the UK’s case, around – Europe. The first trip I took was to Scotland. As a huge fan of Outlander, this was the first weekender I booked. I was really hoping to go and meet a nice, manly Jamie Fraser, move to Scotland, and live happily ever after. But, the trip – and the country – were not what I expected. Scotland somewhat underwhelmed me. There was a lot to see and it was a beautiful country…
