Welcome to A Fresh Dille! I started this blog nearing the end of college in Boston as an outlet to talk about travels, good food, fashion, and fitness. A few years have passed since it’s creation and my interests in these areas have flourished. As a recent college graduate, with a major in writing, literature, and publishing focused on magazine writing, I still feel compelled to share my stories with the blogging community after a post-grad blogging hiatus. Multiple internships in New York City (my birthplace) led me in all sorts of directions. I have been continuously searching for the perfect career, but right now I am confident that I am following a great path, working with wardrobe and helping others create their vision for an audience.
As the daughter of a creative director and former stylist, I grew up with a real passion for style and the art of making clothes.
I would like to think I have always been a real foodie, demanding the richest dark chocolate flourless cakes at very early birthday parties. Entertaining and cooking for others is one of my favorite activities. Since sixteen, I have slowly made my way to an entirely plant-based diet that makes me feel best about my health and environment. Being a vegetarian has been a growing experience. Instead of feeling restricted, I am constantly trying new recipes and ingredients that I never have before.
My love of running emerged when running my first 10K at only 11 years old. I still strive to return to Boston one day to run the Marathon in my college town.
Travel is vital for my happiness. Growing up, my family and I moved across the country a few times and I often find myself antsy when in one place too long. Some of my favorite adventures have been around the Netherlands (where I studied abroad), Italy, and England (where my father is from).
Every day, I attempt to be more healthy and “green”. Of course, I still feel that I have much to learn concerning greening our earth and hope to continue making changes for the better and sharing them on this blog.
Feel free to ask any questions and comments are always appreciated!
