Just kidding. 

Paige is the only one living the real life Lizzie Mcguire movie in Italy right now. 

I found half of a Cosmic Brownie in my backpack today though, so who's the real winner.  

This blog post is about embracing turtlenecks and trippy socks this winter.
You should embrace turtlenecks and trippy socks this winter. 

Just do it. 
You'll be super cozy and feel really cool. 

The real point of this post is to address the fact that Jack's pizza's are currently on sale at Hyvee.

Screw your New Year's diet and stock up while you can.

Benvenuti a Italia

January 20, 2016

Ciao bella!

I am officially settled in the most perfect little Italian city for my study abroad semester. 

Living abroad for an extend period of time has a lot of different challenges. Particularly, if you hoard clothes like myself, packing is a huge obstacle. Since almost every airline limits you to two suitcases, you need use most of that space for clothing. Therefore, there's very limited space left for decorations.

I live in a relatively large single room, so it needed some touches to make it feel more home-y. The only 'decor' I brought with me was a few 4x6 photo prints. I simply used some clothing I already had, books I brought in my carry on, and pretty accessories to brighten up my space. I also found a cool mossy branch to hang necklaces on and I used the mandarins I took from the cafeteria (lol) to add some color to my bookshelf.

I had to include a picture of the town too, just because it's too stinking pretty.

 Here's to the gelato, the scenery, and the pizza,
