My day in NYC ♡

IMG_1256

I arrived to NYC last night and have had a wonderful day in the big apple so far.

IMG_1285I finally got to go to the Butcher’s Daughter! A juice bar/ cafe that I have been wanting to go to for a while now…..mmm doesn’t the food look amazing?!

The Butcher’s Daughter is strictly vegetarian and non dairy.

Most of their items are vegan and gluten free!

Panarea- Isole de Eolie, Italia ♡

IMG_0976

Sadly my trip to Italy is over but I am thankful to be able to look back at these beautiful pictures I took. During my trip to Italy I was able to visit two of the several islands in Isole de Eolie. My favorite by far was an island called Panarea.

IMG_0995

The buildings at Panarea were so beautiful and characteristic. I felt like I was in Santorini! This building behind me is a home…. isn’t it sooo dreamy?!

IMG_0996

The streets were very narrow. Believe it or not golf carts were able to pass by these tiny roads! They used the golf carts as taxis in Panarea which is something I have never seen before.

IMG_1006

The  buildings were white and with a few plants it  changed the atmosphere of every little street.

IMG_1008

I also was able to swim here. The water was so warm! Ahhh I want to go back!!

IMG_1036

This is me in my natural state enjoying a erba meditarranea granita (which had mint, finocchi (fennel), and lemon. I know it sounds kind of funky but it wasn’t guys it was soooooo good!

I can’t wait to go back!

I already miss you Panarea.

With so much love,

Baia di Riaci- Tropea, Italia ♡

IMG_0839

I have been relaxing in Reggio Calabria which is where my family lives (south of Italy, where the tip of the boot is). When we go to Reggio Calabria we go to the beach every single day! This time we went to Baia di Riaci which is by far my favorite beach in near Reggio.

IMG_0902

Look how beautiful the water looks.

IMG_0897

We rented a boat and went into the little caves- I couldn’t take pictures because I don’t have a waterproof case… I know I know, I will buy one soon!

IMG_0850

I love the ocean so much…the water is so beautiful.

IMG_0867

My brother and I

IMG_0886

I will definitely be missing this beach.

I literally swam 3 miles every time I was here.

Ti voglio tanto bene Baia di Riaci

with so much love,

Firenze, Italia ♡

IMG_0620

I have been to Florence a few times due to my brother living in Florence for a year but I never got to visit during the summer! This place was packed with tourists but I was happy to be able to enjoy this beautiful city again.

IMG_0580

This is called the duomo of Firenze! Isn’t the architecture so beautiful?!

IMG_0615

This is Ponte Vecchio which is a medieval stone it was said to be built in the roman times. This a very historical bridge in Italy.

IMG_0650

We had lunch at a new place called Centro Mercato, this place is like Italy is Eataly they had many little restaurants inside that sold traditional food. Everything was delicious!!

IMG_0638

Look how delicious these pastries look! yummmy yum yum

IMG_0644

This is what we had for lunch! Hands down the best mozzarella I have had in my life.

IMG_0736

We stayed at a family friends B&B in a city called Fiesole which is about 10 minutes away from Florence by bus. The little buildings in this picture is the city of Florence!

I had a great time, can’t wait to go back!
