Earlier this year, I spent three days in Reykjavik, Iceland and a few of my photos made it to The Everygirl, but I never posted anything here. It was a quick trip, and Iceland’s terrain is incredible–unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to go back! Here’s a recap of my time in a …

A few weeks ago, I wrote about falling off the grid and wanting to be better about getting out of the house and making plans with friends. The past two weeks, I co-worked at Soho House and Left Coast. And I met friends for a few pool days, flywheel, a rosé tasting, lunch, …

My first trip to Europe back in 2013 left me with a serious case of wanderlust, and I spent the next few years dreaming of leaving the country again. And then it happened. Earlier this year, I visited South America for the first time when I traveled to Buenos Aires and Mendoza, …

The weekend has come to an end and it’s time to dive into another week of work. Instead of feeling sad it’s not Sunday, why not try planning something fun before the holiday weekend? It’s still summer after all, so find the nearest patio, a friend, some rosé, and turn things around. But …

Chicago showed some of the first signs that in the next month or so, summer will be coming to an end. It isn't over yet, but morning and evening temps are creeping into the 60s–a sign that fall is coming. I've been watching too much Game of Thrones.

It's no secret that I love photography. I'm always shooting something with my iPhone, Fuji xT1, Canon Mark iii, or Polaroid Instax. A few moments make it to instagram or facebook, most sit on my iPhone until they need to be deleted, and the really big files get stored in Dropbox.

The list of places I’ve traveled to isn’t especially long, but I feel confident saying that Tuscany may be the most perfect place on earth. It’s that dreamy combination of those rolling hills, tiny little towns, old buildings, and all that Italian wine. I was sure Florence would be my favorite place in …
