DC: Darlingly Cozy

Happy March!

Thankfully spring is right around the corner. I love the winter and snow, but this year has been particularly hard. Warm summer breezes, the beach and the hot sun are calling for me…

Last week was spring break for us bees! (Minus Kelly-who is enjoying hers this week. Don’t worry, she will share all about her travels soon!)

I decided to use the time off to visit my best friend, Beth, who goes to school at George Washington University in Washington D.C. I only stayed for about three days, so Beth and I fit all the sightseeing we could into those days. I also took a ton of pictures and only finished going through them today! The dangers of me and a camera are endless…

Lovely Magnolia

There are many approaches to Valentine’s Day. There’s the lovey-dovey option or the anti-love option. Me, I love the celebration of love!

The Five Things You Must Eat in Rome

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but there’s a very good reason! I’m studying in Rome: The Eternal City, the land of gelato, and the backdrop of the Oscar-worthy film, “The Lizzie McGuire Movie.” This is what (my) dreams are made of. Get ready for some Europe-heavy posts!

Sunny Side Up with Jam n’ Honey

Good Morning!

I would argue that there is no better feeling than getting up early and getting a good breakfast. It is so energizing and motivational. I feel like I can get stuff done when I eat well.

It is good that I go to school in Chicago then, right? Right! It is the best city in America for breakfast food, and I have already been to a few places that were amazing. Just last week we tried a new place in Lincoln Park called Jam n’ Honey.

Sleep Less, Eat More: Insomnia Cookies

The literal definition of college, we three bees have learned, is sleep less, eat more. Basically, college revolves around late nights and always being hungry.

When we visited Lincoln Park a few weeks ago, we decided to check out Insomnia Cookies. Started in 2003 by a student at the University of Pennsylvania, Insomnia Cookies has taken over college campuses on the east coast and mid west. What’s so special about this place? Well, besides selling many different kinds of hot, fresh cookies, they are open until 3am AND deliver!
