Art Bash

This weekend was the Art Bash at UF, where several works from fine arts students were put on display for the public to enjoy. There were different buildings for different mediums, such as sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography, etc. I had never gone before, and was surprised at how much fun and how much creativity was involved. Click on the art bash blog to view their work from previous years!

Move. Eat. Learn.

As the summer reaches its end, I look back at all I have done these last couple of months. I traveled to Europe for the first time, and was exposed to so much culture, food, and life. My wonderful friend and roommate Beatriz sent me these videos she found on the internet, and I must say they are nothing short of amazing. They remind me of my summer, and hopefully reflect a life full of endless new experiences.

Mamma mia, Italian shoes!

Those of you who know me are well aware of my love for shoes. If possible, my closet would be crammed with all types of beautifully crafted shoes of all colors, heights, and styles. During my recent trip to Italy, my shoe appreciation expanded. If anyone can appreciate a good pair of shoes, it's the Italians :) Here are a couple of pictures of some amazing shoes I came across.

Farmer's Market

People are walking around, the scent of fresh flowers lingers in the air, the bright colors of gathered fruits and vegetables catch your eye. What's not to love about farmer's markets?
