It is a little after 4 am in Florence, Italy and I am listening to Tiny Dancer by Elton John. I couldn't sleep, tossing and turning in my little twin bed. I'm not sure if it's the profound lack of air conditioning in my apartment or the Italians loudly coming home from the bar down the street, yelling and singing and laughing as they stumble over each other.
So what do all normal people do when they can't sleep? Make a new blog.
No, actually, that's just me. Let me explain.
Many of you know me as The Girl Abroad and I have loved every second of those posts. But even as a published travel journalist, I am not always traveling and I won't permanently live abroad after this month which makes it hard to write about travel. So, here comes CaliAlly again. Think of it as CaliAlly 2.0.
For those of you who don't know me from Ole Miss (hotty toddy), Cali Ally is a nickname I acquired my freshman year. People didn't know me as Ally Arrigo, it was always, "Ally Arrigo? Oh you mean Ally from Cali?" Thus, Cali Ally became the condensed version and it's stuck ever since.
Not going to lie, I don't think I'll be able to sleep after this because I am pretty siked about the posts I have planned for y'all. Beauty must-haves, travel inspo, photo blogs, lifestyle, and even giveaways with a dear blogger friend of mine, this is the best way for me to produce double the content and double the fun for y'all. I can't contain my excitement, this is going to be so rad.
This is going to be one wild ride. Thank you so much for enjoying it with me!
