The Ordinary is just one of those brands that makes sense. They have good products that aren’t marked up in price, so they are accessible to pretty much everyone. Their stuff works and it doesn’t break your heart if a product doesn’t work for you like an expensive product does. AND what is even better about them is that they…

Little sleep, maybe four hours (maximum), an early wake up call, but it was all worth it because we were going to Capri. We caught the ferry to Capri from Sorrento and we were able to score top deck seats to enjoy the fresh air, breeze and sights of the ocean, coast line of Italy and out of nowhere, Capri.…

Heads Up: Glossier ships to Canada and the UK now! And they are coming out with a perfume this month!     Glossier is one of my all time favorite brands. To me, they just get it. They nail products over and over again and the only downside of Glossier is that they don’t ship world wide already (but that…

I’m not sure if you know this but I’m not much of an eyeshadow girl… I can never seem to drop 40-100 dollars on a single palette, my eyelids crease 24/7 and are oily, and I just can’t be bothered to put in the effort (except an occasional BRONZER in my crease). Yeah a complete 180 from a couple years…

Time to backtrack a bit…. After Venice, that stole my heart, I wasn’t sure what I would think about Florence. I was worried Florence wouldn’t be everything I wanted it to be since I was going to call it home for 4 months. But I knew Venice wasn’t a place for me to call home, just a weekend getaway. After…

Continuing into the second half of the day in Cinque Terre…. If you read the first part, you would know of the hike that we survived… (barely). As for a little setting… The day had become a lot warmer than we predicted. (We noticed that on our hike.) We weren’t planning on swimming, we were gross, hungry, and in need of…

Picture this: It is 5:30 in the morning. The night sky is still dark and the only light peering through your shutters is artificial from a lonesome street lamp. Groggily you roll over, pick up the phone that has the worst sound blaring out of it’s speakers and you press the snooze button. You’ve never been more sure in a…

Lush has always been one of those brands I can count on. From their bath bombs (that are my holy grail when I’m home or have access to a tub), to their fresh face masks (that I always go to when my skin is struggling), and even to their shampoo bars (that are perfect for travel or in your home),…

The ability to study abroad this semester has done wonders for me with my 101 in 1001. It has been a couple of months since my last update but this update is different. All have been accomplished because I have been traveling and studying abroad. During the semester you can look forward to lots of study abroad related content, but…

When I think of Milan I think of Milan Fashion Week. Luxury, high end, shopping, Prada, and it being one of the newer cities in Italy. At the very end of our vacation, we decided last minute to all go to Milan for a couple days. It was one of the cities I really wanted to visit while in Italy…
