My Boston

I took these photos back in September on a day when I didn’t feel like I was quite fitting into the city. On that day, I forced myself to leave my dorm room and go on a walk around Beacon Hill and the Public Gardens. I kept my technology away to unplug except for these few moments when I felt compelled to take out my phone and capture where I was. This walk was a turning point for me because after it, Boston started to feel like home.

I keep these photos on my phone and often find myself scrolling through them when I’m having a down day and feeling a little defeated. They remind me of how far I’ve come in the short time that I’ve been at school and that just because I’m having a bad day, doesn’t mean that I’ll never have another good day.

I wanted to share these photos because I take such pride in this city that I wanted to spread its beauty around the world.

Thank you, Boston, for being so good to me these past few months. I’m glad to call you a second home. Xx


An Ode to the Sticky Buns at Flour Bakery


I can’t believe how delicious these sticky buns are.

For months I’d been seeing articles raving about these sticky buns, but I never understood the hype until last weekend when I got to experience one for myself.

Toasted pecans, gooey caramel and chewy, buttery dough. The sticky buns are so popular that new batches are constantly being made so you’re almost guaranteed to get one that is fresh from the oven. Flour Bakery is seriously legit.

(Also, the sticky buns pair very well with their Green Moroccan Mint Iced Tea if you ask me 😉 )
