You may be sick of hearing this, but I’m really super duper excited for our upcoming trip to Italy. It’s t-minus 6 days until we leave! I can’t believe the moment has finally arrived when my childhood dream of riding around on a vespa in Italy comes true. Let’s be real, ever since I saw the Lizzie McQuire movie, I imagined a summer spent pretending to be an Italian pop star, listening to Italian music, and eating loads of carbs. As I get ready to pack, I’ve rounded up this list of my top 6 “must-haves” for a summer euro trip.

‘Tis the season to be jolly! Because Christmas will be here before we know it. But before I get out our sleigh bells and santa hats, I’m fully embracing the tailgating season. I’ve been wearing my boyfriend’s oversized USC sweatshirt basically every day, since we obviously can’t make it to the games in person. It’s literally the comfiest sweatshirt ever. Sure, we haven’t had the most successful football season this year, not to mention the fact that my boyfriend and I literally have to get up in the middle of the night for the games. But hey, it’s been fun to watch. All-around worth it.
Finally, it feels like fall in Hong Kong! It’s been a long time coming, but the weather has decided to cool of a bit. It’s now 68 degrees Fahrenheit, instead of the usual 80+ degrees. Sure, by many people’s standards this might not be considered cool weather, but trust me I’m not complaining. I’ll take what I can get. I’m now whipping out my cozy knit sweaters, blasting Christmas music, and baking all the cookies that I want. If you ask me, the fall season is officially in full swing!
