Incorporate into your life!

It is easy to be the person you have always been, for it requires no change, no self-reflection, no growth. It may appear that changing yourself requires giving up something. In reality, there is no need to give up anything--you must simply add to what has been.

Outfit of the day!!

Where do I begin?

I am sorry I have not been posting very much for the past few weeks. I honestly think I was avoiding my blog because it is really starting to hit me that in less than two weeks I will actually be in Rome.

Yesterday I had my first major Rome meltdown…It sounds stupid but when your grandfather tells you that I could be 'kidnapped, raped, and never be found again', it really makes you worry. I know that he is being ridiculous and that those things probably won't happen, but I just want to make sure I will be safe.

It is difficult because for London, I know roughly where I will want to hangout and take walks and where I will be safe because I have wanted to go there since 7th grade. For Rome, however, I only decided I wanted to go last year. I don't know the language very well and that is making me more and more nervous as the days go by.

Even so, I woke up today feeling much better! I talked to my parents and I realized that I was letting my papap's words get to me more than I should.

My last day at Pitt for four months...

It is so weird to think I will not be coming back to my dorm room in three weeks. It hasn't quite hit me yet that I won't see my roommates until the summer…I had to say good-bye to Kelly and Danielle and it was so hard. I keep getting really sad, but then I remember that I will see them soon and that I can skype them while I am away!

No reservations: Getting my first tattoo

Since I was a little kid, I have always said 'I love you, findy' to my parents and sister. So, we decided that we would all get infinity tattoos before I leave for Rome! It is something that really means a lot to each of us and now no matter how far apart we are from one another, these tattoos will remind us we are always together…no matter what. 

 It didn't hurt that bad…I am just dramatic haha

The finished product! 

Outfit of the day!!

Shirt: Kohl's
Pants: Gabriel Brothers
Shoes: Charlotte Russe

Bon Voyage Party!

Last weekend, my family threw me a fantastic Bon Voyage Party!! Annie and I went shopping down in the Strip District that morning and got tons of food for the party! I was surprised how many people came. It was a nice mix of family, college friends, high school friends, and family friends. There was good food and good company, to say the least it was a perfect night! 

My best friends from Pitt :) 

 Annie and Steff!

 My best friends! 


Just do it!

This video describes how I feel right now! I would get up dance like this if I could but it is late and my roommate is sleeping :) I just feel on top of the world, like nothing can stop me, and all I have to do is live! 

Starting the 30 day countdown until Roma!!!

I cannot believe I will be in Roma in 30 days!!

To make this countdown even more exciting, my sister and I have been working on a 30x30! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term 30x30, it is where you make 30 outfits with 30 pieces. I thought this would be a useful way to control my packing. Doing this really showed me how many different ways I can use a certain piece.

So, to start I am going to show you all of the 30 pieces I will be using! I apologize for the quality of the photos, I tried to do them without my sister and you can tell. hahah :)
