Well, I waited so dang long to post the rest of my study abroad content that it has now become back-to-school content instead… I guess it works, considering most of the outfits I wore in Scotland were more suited for fall, anyway! Today I wanted to talk a little bit about the differences in education I received abroad compared to my home university in the States. For those of you who don’t know, I spent my final semester studying at the University of Glasgow (GU) in Scotland, and I attended the University of Denver (DU) for the other three and a half years of undergrad.

April 2022 Month in Review

I decided to do something a little different for this month’s recap and share unseen photos from throughout April that haven’t made it to the blog, as opposed to a new outfit. I’m not sure if I like it yet, but it was mainly just because I was too lazy to take pics for this post… Let me know what you think in the comments. Otherwise, I have some exciting news to share this month and can hardly believe tomorrow is already May! April was all over the place—from finishing my travels with my parents, to spending a week doing nothing but writing my thesis, to going to Dublin… feels like three months wrapped into one. Check out my top blog posts, outfits, and shows from April down below! Continue reading “April 2022 Month in Review”
