Bonjour, from Paris!

20131111-115541.jpg

Hello loves! I am so excited to be in Paris this week and just wanted to check in. I am staying with my good friend from school who is studying here, and I came over from Copenhagen with two of my girlfriends. I am going to take a bit of a blogging hiatus and enjoy my time here, but keep up with my adventures on Instagram @punkrockparti because I am always active on there. x, Aurevoir!

Prague Photo Diary

IMG_8864 I highly recommend Prague in the fall. Although it was a very touristy place, the changing leaves were gorgeous and it was super warm for October. My friends and I had a great time walking all around the city and checking out the sites. The city is one of the easiest to navigate that I have come across in my travels so far, and you can do so completely on foot. The food was also delicious + cheap, which is always a plus for college students bumming around in hostels! Definitely a must-see for 2 or 3 days if you find yourself on a Eurotrip!

Thank you for stopping by, and hope you had a great Halloween! x. Paige

Tell Me About Amsterdam + Prague!

amsterdam One amazing aspect of studying abroad in Europe is that we get the opportunity to travel around pretty frequently + easily, without spending too much on travel! Luckily my program gets quite a few travel breaks, and my next stop will be hitting up Amsterdam and Prague with 2 of my girlfriends!

What I want to know is, have you ever visited either of these locations? If so, I'd love to hear your recommendations! We will be in Prague for 2 days and Amsterdam for 4 and would love to know the best local spots to check out.

I also wanted to show you a new feature I've added to the blog. Since I will be traveling around a lot this year, I thought it would be fun to be able to come to Punkrockparti and know where I'm at. So, check out the right hand side bar for my "Currently In" map [under the navigation buttons] and you'll always be up to date! I hope you like this interactive feature.

The Week in Squares

I stated on here before that I wasn't a fan of Instagram-recap blog posts, but the first one I posted was pretty well received, so I thought I would try it again! I also didn't want to leave you guys hanging too too long while I am away traveling. If you already follow me on Instagram, I will try to elaborate a little more about each square photo so you get some new deets as well! insta recap 1

// My friends took me to this amazing thrift store, Episode, one block over from our school on Friday and holy-mother-of-vintage was it glorious. A little over-priced, granted, but fun for browsing and future purchases.

// I've found a coffee shop near school called Cafe Paludan that reminds me of my favorite one back in California. It also has a sense of coziness that I love, which reminded me of the Danish phrase "hygge". It's a little long to describe, so click the italics if you want to learn more!

// The harness boots I picked up in Sweden, more on those in this style post!

// In August we celebrated the 1 year birthday of this blog, and I recapped the year with my favorite posts. Thank you to all the readers + followers of Punkrockparti!!

insta recap 2

// Quick Monday #OOTD, wearing an H&M top from the Fashion Hunters Flea Market in Copenhagen, and a geometric necklace from Macy's.

// While biking to Cafe Paludan, I rode past the plaza known as Frue Plads, where there was an orange balloon release! I'm not sure what the reason was, but it was a picture perfect moment.

// On a day with no class, my friend Elsa and I biked to check out Tietgen Kollegiet which is student housing. We ended up getting caught in the rain, but afterwards the sun came out and it was beautiful!

// A shot from the day I spent in Malmö with Elsa and Sheila. It was a fun little excursion and one of the best parts was stopping in the design stores and comparing the Danish and Swedish aesthetics.

Thanks for reading, + hope you enjoyed! What are you instagramming lately? x. Paige

p.s. Will be back from my trip tomorrow and have so much to share! Can't wait, see you then!
