Here’s my story. I graduated from Curry College with a Bachelors of Arts in Studio Arts on May 20, 2018. Graduating from college will feel so unreal, until the very next day. And it will hit you like a … Continue reading HOW IT FEELS TO BE A POST-COLLEGE GRADUATE
Have you ever traveled to a different country or even a state, and their norms don’t seem at all “normal” to you? When I first arrived in Italy, there were so many different things happening left and right that was normal to them, but it was overwhelming for me. You mean the vehicles won’t even slow down for you? Eat a panini every day for breakfast. Italy doesn’t have normal breakfasts here like in America. It is definitely far from eating at IHOP. Most Italians will buy some type of drink and a pastry, and that’s it. Good luck waiting … Continue reading Things I Wouldn’t do in America
Something I’ve experienced my whole life. There were points in my life where I had a decent number of friends, and for some reason, the number of friends I had was important growing up, 95% of the time I wasn’t invited … Continue reading What it Feels Like to be the Girl Who Doesn’t Get Invited to Places

Well, it’s pretty crazy at my house getting things together and cleaning things out. I am still packing. I packed a huge majority of things like clothing, shoes, underwear, makeup, toiletries, that kinds of stuff. Of course, there are always those little things that you still need to somehow fit somewhere, like vitamins, feminine products, a picture frame that two pictures of my boyfriend and I that he gave me for Christmas to bring along with me when I go off. Definitely packing those three things I mentioned, and more, I just have to figure out what suitcase or bag I … Continue reading Makeup & Skincare Travel Essentials
Oh boy is packing overwhelming. I am not trying to start off this post on a bad note or anything but packing for 3 1/2 months (January 20th, technically the 21st – May 5th) is definitely challenging. I am almost twenty-one, and yes I am into fashion, and yes, I have an excessive amount of clothing…and stuff…but mostly clothing. It’s not like I’m packing summer clothing, but since it is still winter, and although Florence’s cold temperatures won’t make your face feel like it’s falling off, ya still gotta pack those sweaters. In reality, I should be continuously packing right … Continue reading Packing List for Study Abroad Italy 2017
Hello! Welcome to my blog, Jordan Du Jour! Here I will write posts about my travels through London, Rome, Florence (where my program is), Siena, Venice, and who knows where else! I cannot wait to use my YouTube channel (JEBeauty) as another platform to show the world my personal perspective of Europe, and use the coolest camera to film – a GoPro. Along with using the GoPro, I take my pictures and film my YouTube videos with a Sony Alpha a58 DSLR camera. The camera takes beautiful pictures and videos and wanting to become a free-lance photographer, I cannot wait to play … Continue reading Welcome to my blog // Happy 2017!
