Scheduling "Me" Time
I never get to do this...spend time by myself shopping? What is that? I wouldn't know, until today! I got out of the house for a bit because I was feeling stuffy and had been here for far too long. I was anxiously awaiting my picture taking later today and thought "I have graduation money, why not spend some?" Alas, here I am back with a few goodies and books to read!
I never go shopping for myself (raise your hand if you're that person!) but today I needed to get a few things so I thought, why not? I ended up picking up a few summer-y shirts, a skirt, dress, hat and a few good books! I still have a few more books to purchase for the summer but these are good starters :).
I also went to the cutest little antique store here in town. How can you resist it when it has the most adorable light up letters? I had to go in.. It was on my way to get macaroons for the first time! I saw that a local bakery in town had them and I just thought "I have to try them!" However, I can't wait to actually try them in Paris.
This is by far the cutest bookstore in our town! They buy books and mark them half the price! Best. Place. Ever. I also have been putting to use my Starbucks gift card from my mom's friend...one of the best gifts for a coffee addict.
For me, it's always important to set aside time to spend by myself. I like to hang out with friends & family but I also like to relax and drink a cup of coffee alone. I had the best day just pampering myself and enjoying the beautiful weather.
What do you do when you have a day off? How do you schedule "me" time into your busy lives (cause I know we all have them!) Comment below and tell me your secrets!!

Eating in London on a budget is no easy task but I fully believe that it can be done if you know the right places to go. When I lived there, I didn't eat out a lot because I was constantly at my university - but when I did eat out, it was at places that were affordable yet amazing.

When people tell me that while I was working on my Master's degree I was on vacation I get irritated and defensive. This post is a honest, heartfelt opinion on this subject and if you are considering studying abroad in general - I suggest you read it!
In most people's minds, when you travel you have to have and spend a lot of money. I like to think that I proved that wrong on several of my trips. I went on a ten day, four country trip for less than $700. I also went on a 14 day, 5 country trip for less than $1000. Honestly, you can spend less than that if you really watch what you're spending your money on. I want to share a few tips on how you can travel on a budget but still get the most out of your trip abroad.
Let's face it, 2016 wasn't the greatest year for most people. However, I had an amazing year and I'd like to give you some advice on how you can make your 2017 GREAT.
