Amalfi Coast

I would say one of the most stunning places I have ever traveled to would be the Amalfi Coast. It’s paradise that you only dream about until you finally get to go there. If you want to experience great seafood, the sweetest lemons, winding streets, and colorful houses sitting over rocks, get your butt over there!

Fall is here and winter is coming.

Time to liven up your winter with some excitement. Check out some of my favorite green jackets that are under $100.00 below!

Starboy

On November 25, 2016, The Weeknd came out with his third album called, Starboy. Artists like Lana Del Rey and Future are featured on this album. After seeing him perform on the American Music Awards recently, I realized how shockingly talented he is as an artist and what a wonderful voice he has. This album shows off his many talents and how he can collaborate with many different types of artists. Listen to my favorite song from the album below to get a little taste of it. You can also watch his awesome performance from the American Music Awards!

 

Back Again for NYFW #TBT

This September, I interned for a public relations firm, Black Frame, during New York Fashion Week. I was able to work at multiple events and got to meet the designers as well. I attended Dion Lee, Opening Ceremony, Simon Miller, Edie Parker, and Rodarte. Three of the designers showed off their lines as fashion shows and two of them were unique presentations. From Rodarte’s fairytale like inspiration to Edie Parker’s magnificent variety of colorful clutches, each show and presentation was so individualistic and incredible to be apart of. Being an intern has taught me so many things, especially that it is the small details that count. I have participated in fashion week as an intern for multiple seasons and I now realize how valuable each of those experiences will be for me in the future. #TBT to my last internship experience ever! It was well worth it.

Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany is a region in central Italy. I was able to visit multiple towns in Tuscany and got to experience their culture, churches, art, and of course the incredible wine. I traveled to Cortona, Siena, Greve, and Panzano.

This year for Alpha Phi homecoming, we wanted to do something a little different and more exciting for the seniors. Every year we have shirts made, but as merchandising chair, I decided we needed something a little trendier than the usual merchandise.

Kanye West has been on tour this past year and his Life of Pablo merchandise sold concerts have become a hit. Celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, and Sophia Richie wear their own Life of Pablo shirts around Hollywood too.

Because the shirts have become so big, I thought there was no better idea than to bring them to the University of Delaware. The idea ended up working out perfectly and everyone loved them. To make them even more fun and interesting, I added every senior’s nickname to the bottom of the shirts as well. Check out our senior homecoming shirts below!
