Good Morning from Carma Coffee

On this snowy Tuesday morning, my friend Dominic and I decided to switch up our usual after-class studying routine, and headed over to Carma Coffee. I find that continuously repeating the same daily patterns can get boring after a while. A good change of scenery often does the trick to get my mind out of … Continue reading Good Morning from Carma Coffee

My Figure Skating Journey

As the 2018 Winter Olympics are underway in Pyeongchang, I thought I'd share a little bit about my own figure skating journey and how it has changed me over the past 11 years. I had my first competition a year after I started skating when I was 8 years old. When I was younger I … Continue reading My Figure Skating Journey

The Twin Cities’ Agra-Culture

This weekend's adventure was to Agra-Culture, a restaurant in Uptown Minneapolis. They have some great options for anyone, and are especially focused on vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.

I had the Chicken Apple Flatbread that had roasted chicken, organic apple, mozzarella, organic arugula, and agra vinaigrette, with a … Continue reading The Twin Cities’ Agra-Culture

Blonde Hair and the Budget Cares

I've been dying my hair since I got my first set of highlights at eleven years old. I've been every shade of blonde under the sun and even went dark dark brunette for a while. Looking back, that was a poor choice since I probably looked like a vampire with how pale my skin is, and I … Continue reading Blonde Hair and the Budget Cares

Downtown at Penny’s Coffee

It's been quite a while since I have written a post! After a long fall college semester, and a whirl-wind winter break, I decided I should start making time again for my blog. Last week during my break, my cousin Jamie came up from Iowa to stay with me for the weekend. She's not used … Continue reading Downtown at Penny’s Coffee

Leather Weather 

As the Minnesota weather starts to cool off, it's time to bring out the fall essentials. I have an obsession with jackets and own way more than I probably should. This baby pink faux leather jacket from Blu Pepper is one of my new favorites. It has a hard edge to it as well as … Continue reading Leather Weather

A Weekend in Berlin

Back in June on my foreign exchange trip, the group I was with spent a few days traveling around Germany. Our first stop was in Munich, and from there we headed to Berlin. We started our time in Berlin by taking a boat tour, where we went down the Isar river and listened to the … Continue reading A Weekend in Berlin

Embrace Yourself Today

I found this quote by Elizabeth Gilbert and it immediately got me thinking. So many people try to change their life to make it perfect, or to what they believe perfection is. What they don't realize is that everyone's idea of what is perfect is different. Maybe, instead of changing who we are to meet … Continue reading Embrace Yourself Today

Farmers Market Flowers & The Buttered Tin 

This morning began bright and early at 7:00 am and for a Saturday, that's a lot to ask of anyone. So, after meeting up with my friend Megan and her family, we stopped for a quick (and much-needed) Starbucks run, and then headed to the Saint Paul Farmers Market. Once we walked through all of … Continue reading Farmers Market Flowers & The Buttered Tin 

An Empire of Coffee

Empire Coffee & Pastry has been a longtime go-to of mine. If not for their fantastic menu, then for the atmosphere created by the white walls, green plants, and an opening wall made up by a garage door. Yes, a garage door. Before this became a cafe it was actually an auto body shop, which … Continue reading An Empire of Coffee

München: A City of Culture

During my three weeks in Germany I was in awe of everything around me. Everything was so different yet so similar to what I knew back home. That is until we went to Munich. When my group and I walked into the Marienplatz, we looked around and realized that we were surrounded by everything we … Continue reading München: A City of Culture

I had never really thought much about what it means to be a vulnerable person until we were challenged to see how this is applied to our lives and being a strong leader. When … Continue reading Vulnerability

Taking a Moment out of Every Day

After Labor Day, I started my Senior year of High school as a PSEO (Post Secondary Enrollment Option) student at the University of Minnesota. As amazing as it has been these last few weeks, I've definitely noticed that it's harder to find time to balance out my school work and personal life with such a … Continue reading Taking a Moment out of Every Day
