Go For The Greens: Building The Women of Tomorrow

The program is one of a kind. From the friendships you create to the empowering speakers that you hear. As someone who attended for two years, I can say that the results have been extraordinary. I have been able to achieve things such as securing an internship and graduating top of my class. There’s a new confidence and hope for the future that has been instilled me that I owe a lot of credit to the program for. It’s always an incredible experience coming back

Flying Fish: Ocean Full of Flavor

I recently attended a business conference in Orlando, Florida and got to sample some of the best seafood delicacies at the Disney World Resort in Broad Walk Inn. A tasty dinner is the perfect reward after long day of meetings in my opinion so when I was able to snatch a table at Flying Fish, I was floating through the rest of day. But let’s get go onto what you really want to hear about THE FOOD!

Jalisco Norte: Mexican Food Done Right

As a native Texan, I have a deep love for Mexican Food. FYI, Mexican food is made up of more than margaritas and burritos. It is packed full of color and flavor. It is like the vibrancy of life are contained in each individual bite. So I was excited to explore one of the best Mexican restaurants in Dallas, Texas at Jalisco Norte. The first thing to note about this place is the modern city vibe contained within the walls while the purely authentic music pouring from the speakers into the street. So get ready for some of the best Mexican food you will ever have. 

My Go-To Travel Necessities: Carry-on Edition

As I get to ready for traveling this fall, there is one list I use as my the first things that go into my carry-on bag. My carry-on bag is the first thing I always pack because if anything happens to my suitcase that I store under the plane I will have to live out of my carry-on until I can either purchase new items or my suitcase arrives. So here is my list of travel necessities in my carry-on bag:

Last Supper, the Last Stop

Leonardo Di Vinci is probably one of the most famous artist that emerged out of the Italian Renaissance. He was fascinated by a variety of academic subjects outside of his artistic pursuit. He traveled all over Italy completing work for some of the most powerful families at the time. People can recognize his unique style on sight. Some can name and describe several of his most famous masterpieces. I personally love his unique style towards painting and pursuing several subjects of study. So when I landed in the city of Milan this summer, I was determined to see one of his most famous pieces of work. This master piece was the Last Supper in the Convent of Santa Maria. 

Sforesco Castle: Collection of Collectibles

Milan is a beautiful city. It is full of history. A history you can see and feel in every corner. If one doesn’t have time to wander every nook and cranny then might I suggest a sight that is filled to the brim with a collection of collectibles. The Sforesco Castle in Milan was built in the 15th century and rebuilt in 1891.  It now is a popular sightseeing spot for tourist today. The grand size of this sight allows it to be a perfect sight to collect various artifacts from Italian Renaissance that Italy was famous for. They have a large collection of statues, ceramics, murals, and so much more. 

Borgo San Jacopo: Michelin Star = Michelin Yum

When a restaurant is awarded a Michelin Star, it is considered one of the greatest achievements it can receive.  Florence is home to a plethora of Michelin Star restaurants. In a city full of high quality restaurants, why wouldn’t you go try one out? So after searching for an opening, we were able to dine at Borgo San Jacopo.

Golden View Open Bar: Go for the View, Stay for the Food & Wine

Above the soft lulls of the river in Florence, there is a restaurant near Pointe Vecchio that has the most beautiful views of the river front. They have aptly named this restaurant and bar, Golden View Open Bar. If you have a dining table by the massive windows then you will be stunned by the setting sun and twinkling lights of the city. You can watch the steady stream of tourist and locals meander over the bridges that connect each river side to each other. The whole atmosphere is of peace and tranquility. I see why this was a strong recommendation from Giada De Laurentis. Now onto the food!

Gran Caffe San Marco: An Italian Sweet Treat

Florence is the city of delicious foods. In food blogs, we hear about the pizzas, pastas, and gelato of Florence. However, there is more to the food of Florence than just those three things. Today I am going to look at the more sweet side of the items one should try while in Florence. So after doing some online research from accredited reviewers and trip advisory sites, I went to one of the top cafés in Florence for a sweet treat. Gran Caffe San Marco has many dinning options from to-go sandwiches to culinary pizzas. But this time I focused on the giant sweets display case that runs on both sides of the café.
