Some of my textile designs: V&A, the Tate, and British Museum (in that order)
Some inspirations (of those that could be pictured.)

I couldn't take pics in the Tate, but the middle one is loosely inspired by something that sort of looked like this, except it was a cool painting.

Venice Top 5:

5. The laughably disgusting food. Italian food sounds good, right? You're wrong. American Italian food sounds good. Sure, that is a blanket statement that is completely out of context, but the food we had is worth noting as some of the most deceiving food I've ever had- and that includes April Fool's Day dinners.
4. Falling into the Grande Canal. I was the only one on the trip who can say that.
3. The fact that streets are crowded with people, not cars.
2. Going to church in Italy! So fun and the people are kind. It was a trick to get there, but totally worth the effort.
1. Gondola ride, hands down. If you go to Venice, don't skip it.

ROME (overall)

Rome top 5:

5. Swimming with blue caps at our hotel. We saw hairy armpit lady, topless little girl, and bottomless little boy.
4. Singing the national anthem late at night in our hotel room on July 4.
3. Hailstorm at the Colosseum
2. VATICAN CITY! Good glory. That includes the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's, the view, etc. It was the most incredible experience. And a little creepy too. Haha
1. Meeting Mario, my Italian boyfriend... Or so I'd like to believe.
