Buongiorno, Readers,

Ciao from Milano! I am so excited to be on this University of Southern California Winslow-Maxwell Fashion Business Photography/Videography Internship! I am getting settled in in Milano, as I arrived last Friday morning. I have been going to Italian school daily, and then going on adventures in the afternoons! Check out my daily blog on my professional photography/videography business website for the full report. I have only been here a week, but I've done so much from my bucket list already! Here are the top 10 places I've been in Milano so far (and I recommend you do them too)!:

1. Duomo di Milano

Worth all the flights of stairs. Every. Single. One.

2. Luini Panzerotti

The best piece of fried bread stuffed with mozzarella and pomodoro.

3. Bulgari Hotel

Yes, as in the one owned by the jewelers. Almost as gorgeous as their pieces, which are actually on display in the lobby.

4. Gucci Flagship Store

Visit the world's largest Gucci store, and have a sparkle queen moment.

5. Via Montenapoleone in Quadrilatero della Moda

Pucci, Fendi, Prada, Gucci, Versace, Valentino, Van Cleef, Cartier, La Perla... The stores are endless... A street of heaven.

6. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

The other fashion heaven. It's right next to the Duomo, so it's the cathdral della moda 😉 Plus, it has my favorite LV collection... LV x Koons!!!

7. ParcoMilano Apertivos in Parco Sempione

10 Euros for mussels, pizza, fried risotto balls, olives, chips, and a drink. I call that a DEAL!

8. The canals in Navigli

Mini Venice. Enough said. Lucky I live in this part of Milano!

9. Cioccolati Italiani

Only the most famous Italian gelateria. Nutella, nutella, and, oh, more NUTELLA!

10. Ferrari Store

Vroom, vroom. Skrrt, skrrt.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
