I Graduated!

Wow, college really FLEW by. It's so surreal to be done with undergrad–– let me tell you, it never feels like it is going to be over until it's over. Rollins was the best place on Earth for the past three years of my life, and I would not trade it for the world. I made lifelong friends, experienced a valuable education, and fell in love with the town of Winter Park. I could not have done it without the support of my loving friends and family along the way. Three years ago, I was scared as hell to transfer to a place I had visited once, and that scary decision was the best one I have made in my life. My advice to all of my readers: just do it. Nike knows, I know, you know–– it's worth it.

A ton of y'all are asking about my plans now that I am done with school. Next Wednesday, I am hopping on a plane to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and to also participate in a field study led by Rollins for three weeks. Even though I had plenty of credits to graduate, I decided that I could not pass up such a good opportunity to learn about the communities surrounding Kilimanjaro and to also learn about myself. After Tanzania, I will be working for Michael Kors until I figure out what I want to do next and where I want to move–– Savannah is serving as a good home base right now, but I want to ultimately live somewhere else!

Where to Eat Around Winter Park & Orlando

This may come as a surprise to you guys, but one of my favorite things to do in my spare time is to try out new restaurants. The thing I love most about living in Winter Park is the amount of good food there is at every turn. Most of the restaurants I'm recommending below are in WP, but some are in Orlando as well. I'm so sad to be leaving WP after graduation, but I know the food will keep me coming back year after year to visit!

Easter Dress Ideas

Last year, Easter happened to fall on my 21st Birthday–– I had such a hard time finding a dress for both occasions that I was scrambling at the last minute! I eventually found the one above at Club Monaco! This year, I am going home for Easter to celebrate with my family. I am super excited because I have not been home in three months! I know a lot of you also wait until the last minute to shop, so I have put some of my favorite dresses together below, and all of them have 2-day shipping through Shopbop or Revolve!

How to Buy High End Luxury Items on a Budget

One of the questions that I get asked the most is how to purchase luxury items when on a budget–– people are constantly wondering how to buy luxury for less than full price without compromising quality. It is completely possible to do! Finding designer bags, shoes and accessories at a discount is honestly not as tricky as it seems. Here are some ways that I have been able to save some major $ when picking out high-end pieces.
