Great Gifts For Mom!

Happy Sunday! 🙂

Mothers day GG

Unfortunately, there’ll be no WIWTW today [I’m sorry!!] It’s been a crazy week + I’m in the process of moving out of my apartment – so my OOTD’s were reallllly not worth documenting. Instead, I wanted to share a little gift guide for Mom since Mother’s Day is just 2 weeks away! 🙂

The Land Of My People!

Both sides of my family are Italian; my Mother’s family is from Ischia — a small Island off the coast of Naples, and my Father’s family is from Calabria, the Southern most point of the country + just a hop skip and a jump away from Sicily. We’ve been to Ischia before [it’s stunning] + actually took a quick day trip so my Dad could see this time around, but we were really excited to spend a little time in Calabria + explore our roots!

I wanted to share some photos from what was probably the most beautiful leg of this trip. We stayed in Sorrento for 4 days, and while there, we visited Pompeii, Capri, and Amalfi! I tried to choose just a few photos to share from each. 🙂

The Most Beautiful Place I’ve Ever Been…

Oh my goodness, I could not get these pictures and this blog post uploaded + edited quick enough!

So by bumping my Italy trip up, it overlapped with my parents visit! Having this time with them has been so much fun + so incredibly special. Over the weekend, we all took a trip to Switzerland to see the alps, and WOW. It was hands down, the most beautiful place I have ever been…honestly, ever. The whole day from start to finish was basically magical. Switzerland

Today, I wanted to share a few of the pictures I snapped + a quick video I threw together from the trip! Take a peek! –>  Continue reading

Finally in Firenze.

Good Morning [afternoon] from Florence! 🙂

breakfastI am so happy to be in this adorable city with some of my favorite people! I’ve been to Italy a couple of times before, but never to Florence! Oh my gosh was I missing out. This just may be the most charming, quaint, and cozy little place you could ever travel to. I’ve been doing nothing but eating, snapping pictures, relaxing, drinking, eating, walking, sightseeing …and eating! 😉

I just wanted get a quick post up + share a few of the pictures I’ve taken since I’ve arrived!
