3 Days in Madrid

Madrid surprised me. When we originally started planning our trip to Spain, I was considering Valencia, Seville and other parts in the southern region, or to just be lazy and soak up Barcelona for 9 days. But I loved the city so much, it makes me wish we planned an extra day or two to soak in the chic, Spanish…

Royal Palace of Madrid

On our last day in the city, we visited the Royal Palace of Madrid. When I travel, I love visiting the royal residences… for me, it’s a perfect mix of architecture, fine art and interior design that keeps things interesting! We went on a Sunday and it wasn’t busy at all. Included in the entrance fee was an audio guide…

Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia is so iconic to Barcelona. When I told friends and family I'd be visiting the city for several days, they all reminisced about Gaudi's most famous, unfinished work. On our second-last day in Barcelona, we visited the Sagrada Familia Basilica, to tour the grounds and view the inside. sagrada familia barcelona (15 of 15) sagrada familia barcelona (8 of 15) sagrada familia barcelona (2 of 15) sagrada familia barcelona (11 of 15) I wasn't sure about the dress code to visit the church, while it's still technically a construction site and unfinished, I didn't want to be turned away at the door. However, I noticed many guests wearing tank tops and shorts, so they do not enforce any dress codes. I still wanted to be respectful for a place of worship, so I wore a midi-length seersucker skirt from Zara (old, similar style available here) that I also wore here, a white, a tassle necklace from Kendra Scott, an off-the-shoulder top from She In, lace up sandals from Sam Edelman, and a Cult Gaia small Ark Bag.

Graduating from Law School

graduating from law school (5 of 9) graduating from law school (7 of 9) graduating from law school (8 of 9) Today, I am graduating from law school at the University of Ottawa. The past few years have led up to this, and by the end of the day I will be a Juris Doctor. I would be lying if I said the past three years went by "quickly," because frankly, it was a long journey. Prior to law school, I spent a year freelancing, being "funemployed" and studying for the LSAT. I got into the University of Ottawa's English Common Law program and jumped immediately at the opportunity. Law school definitely went beyond my expectations and challenged me in every way. Every night, staying up till 6 a.m. writing a memo or factum, or not sleeping at all to put together a summary. Every exam, every lecture (I rarely skipped class, save for the flu last year and getting stuck in an ice storm in New Jersey after New York Fashion Week), every day at the clinic... it all led up to this.
