A Weekend in Milano

A week in Milano❤️

Milano is one of the most magical places I’ve ever been to (especially during the holiday season). For as long as I could remember, I’ve dreamed of going to Italy and eating my favorite foods, drinking wine, and shopping. Sadly I only had a weekend to do all of that, but it was one of the best weekends of my life. A friend of mine was living there for a few months, so I bought a plane ticket, planned my trip, and left London on Black Friday weekend.

Everything just seemed oddly familiar to me, like I’d visited before. It was exactly what I thought it would be like, yet nothing like what I thought at the same time. But I must say, the food was EXACTLY what I thought it would be like. Fresh, flavorful and to DIE for. Best pasta and bruschette I’ve ever had.

There was so much culture and history everywhere that I went, and I could just feel it there. Everything was so beautiful and it sometimes felt like I stepped back in time.

It’s definitely a place I want to visit again in the future, and hopefully you and I both will get the change to tour the rest of Italy! And of course, eat all the food.

Tate Modern

These photos are from my first visit to the Tate London museum here in London. It’s a contemporary art museum housing some of the most confusing pieces of art I’ve ever come across. Here are some art pieces I found interesting (or that made sense to me haha).

Theme: 7 deadly sins: gluttony

 

These photos are apart of a styling assignment I had for school. The concept behind this work is the seven deadly sins. We had to choose one sin and create a story through styling and photography, and I chose gluttony. This represents the life of an alcoholic, helped brought to life by my friend Niall (model).

Little Cayman

For those of you who do not know, I am from the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands are made up of 3 islands and I live on the biggest one. But For the first time in 10 years, I took a trip to the smallest one, Little Cayman.

Little Cayman has a population of about 300 people (maybe less), and it is my favorite place in the world. Not only are you forced to relax, but you feel and sense of joy all the time because there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can go outside and you will hear nothing but Booby birds or the crashing of waves from the sea.

I took my camera along with me and captured a few beautiful photos of the island that I will be sharing with you in my upcoming posts. Sadly I was only there for 4 short days but I cannot wait to be back!
