Today I am writing you from bella Roma! I hope your week has been fantastic 🙂 here are some of my highlights:
Blogger Lunch @ Clotilde
On Friday a few of us Blogger-gals were invited for a lunch at Clotilde. This was a very special Lunch because Saskia from Blog Ciao Tutti was in town from Amsterdam. It was so great to finally meet her because I had heard so many wonderful things! 😊 We all enjoyed a wonderful lunch filled with delicious food and deep glasses of red wine 🍷 I just love getting together with like-minded people to discuss all things Italy! For more on this special lunch and last weekend you can check out my Zoey’s Diary 27: First Weekend in the New Apartment! ✨
A Gatsby Night Out
On Monday night Anastasiya and I attended the launch of Zeglu (zero-gluten alternatives 🍝). Food is a very important subject here in Italy (as you can imagine 😉) so of course this even was #Grande! The woman in the photo above was walking around on stilts and we had a wonderfully entertaining opera show! The whole event felt right out of The Great Gatsby (minus Leo, where was he??). The vlog will be up early next week so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for it 👀✨
This week I was lucky enough to find not only one new coffee shop which suits my working needs, but TWO! 😍 Both of which carry vegan treats! 🥐 I feel like the luckiest girl in the world 🍀. Even though I adore my new apartment, sometimes I need an alternative working space to keep things interesting and productive (not to mention the upload speed at my place is a little non-existent 😅). By the way, I have changed my YouTube upload schedule to: Monday, Wednesday and Friday @ 11:00 AM CET for Spring and Summer… with the occasional surprise upload on Sunday 😉 hint hint!
The SUN came out this week. Not just that, “Oh, it’s sunny,” it was that, “OMG-TODAY-FEELS-LIKE-SUMMER SUN!!!” ☀️ Maybe I’m getting a little ahead of myself, but it definitely felt like primavera this week (which is “Spring” 🌷 in Italian). Anastasiya and I took full advantage by planning a fun golden hour photoshoot 😊✨
This week I had a couple amazing manifestation walks – if you don’t know what I mean by that you can check out this video. I can’t wait to share the story of how we manifested our apartment with all of you, because it really feels like magic! ✨ I can’t believe I get to walk outside my door into my old desktop wallpapers each day 😍 Sometimes when you’re feeling lack all it takes is a little stroll, a ray of sunshine and the sight of some fresh flowers (it’s all about the little things). No one knows what tomorrow brings, next week or even next year. All we have is right now. Take the time to feel grateful for all you have in this life, and all you have had the opportunity to experience. Bask in THAT abundance… 💐💛
