What to Pack for San Francisco

San Francisco is my favorite city in the US, but no matter how much time I spend there it’s still one of the hardest cities to pack for. Known for its cool and sometimes rainy weather, one minute the sun is out and you’re hot in a t-shirt and the next minute the clouds have rolled in and you’re freezing. I swear, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve lived there, the only way to dress for the weather is to…

In-Flight Reading: June 2017

We’re getting into beach read territory now that it’s summer! So I’ve pulled together a few quick, light reads for the beach or sitting out on your deck. If you’re in need of a new novel to dive into, here are my book suggestions for June. Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine I just started this book and am loving Eleanor and her brutal honesty and spot on (yet totally off) observations!

Italian Phrases To Know Before You Go

It’s always a good idea to learn at least a few phrases of the local language when you’re visiting a foreign country. Making an effort to speak someone’s language (even if it’s just a few words) usually goes a long way. It’s also a good idea for safety reasons if you find yourself in need of a doctor. Sometimes guidebooks can over do it with the list of words and phrases you “need” to know, so below I’ve included a…
