Mandatory Pumpkin Patch

If I had to pick a favorite October/Fall tradition, it would definitely be going to the pumpkin patch. Going to a pumpkin patch is what makes fall official for me. I usually go to a cute small little patch near my house and buy a couple pumpkins to then put on my front porch for decoration, but once in a while, I’ll come across a fun, big, activity-filled patch that I can’t stop myself from going to! … More Mandatory Pumpkin Patch

For dessert, I had penna cotta, which had a caramelized topping…yumm. … More A Taste of Italy in Costa Rica

When packing for Costa Rica, I glanced at my closet, and realized this would be the perfect place to where it to, and to let it have its what I like to call, star moment. It was perfect for the occasion. The color was tropical yet rough for the adventure, and trendy with detail yet easy to wear and breathable for the warm weather . To keep the adventure vibe going, I paired it with some grey leggings from Pink, and my sneakers inspired by travel from Soludos. … More Crochet + Adventure

Taking a Breather

Taking a breather… Its something I think we should all do once in a while. For me, it can mean many things. There are different ways to relax and unwind from it all. Sometimes a spa day will work, other days a nice long walk by the beach. More on, some retail therapy. This summer, after graduating from graduate school (and after a long 2020 of quarantine), I took my usual summer trip. This time, I decided I would go somewhere that I had been longing to go for quite a while. A place where I heard adventure awaited, where fruits and trees blossomed, and where nature was more noticeably untouched. I went to Costa Rica. … More Taking a Breather
