Welcome to my corner of the world, a destination for bon vivants seeking joyful, elegant experiences in the company of loved ones. Here I invite you to join me on my weekend getaways and global travels, as well as on my journeys in style and personal wellness. I hope to inspire you to discover more adventure and beauty in your daily life, even when navigating a full-time job and a budget.

My Story

A recent transplant to the beautiful city of San Francisco, I was born, bred, and educated in Boston. I spent my youth wandering through cobblestone streets, eating my way through neighborhoods, and soaking up the splendor of my favorite museums. For college, I crossed the Charles River to make my home at Harvard, where I was spoiled with beautiful brick architecture and out-of-town peers whom I could introduce to all my favorite places.

In my junior year of college, I founded this site, which quickly grew from a casual project to a central passion, as I describe in this HerCampus interview. While in college I also met Rolan, my love, whom you’ll meet frequently across these pages. He is my partner in all things, including this blog, to which he contributes inspiration and photography.

Recently graduated, I have now made my home here on the West Coast, and I couldn’t be more excited to share my adventure with you.
