I hope you’ve all had a great week. I have been in Rome and I can definitely say Spring is upon us! 🌷 Here are the highlights:
I Went Out
In day to day life I don’t get out much. Living in Italy these days has felt a lot more like “surviving” and I am also guilty of being a bit of a workaholic, especially when I get anxious (doesn’t make much sense does it 🤔). However, because Gabby was in town I think she could tell I could use a night out so we met up with some of her friends and had a great time in Trastevere. From playing foosball at a Rumeria to dancing the night away to live music, it was just what I needed! Sometimes you just need to get out and dance it out! 💃🏼💃🏽💃🏼
100K happened this week on April 1st and it was no joke! 😄🎉 I am so incredibly grateful for every single one of you who have ever watched, liked, commented or subscribed to my YouTube channel ❤️ Your support means so much to me 😊 as a giveaway I have partnered with Gioielli DOP to pick out a unique gift for a very special subscriber. Have you entered? Watch my 100K video to find out how.
The day Gabby left I was also gifted with more visitors! Manesha, Shaguna and Aahana 😊 it has been great to have such wonderful sisters here to chat about life and enjoy the city while the weather has been shining ☀️ I love when I watch other people fall in love with Rome (it seems to have that effect on a lot of people 😉) We have some awesome plans for the weekend too! Be sure to follow along on Instagram to watch the adventures unfold. 📸
I recently discovered this cute cafe on a side street near my apartment. They even have vegan cornetti! 🥐 If you didn’t know the typical Italian breakfast consists of a spremuta (orange juice) 🍊, a cappuccino ☕️ and a cornetto (also known as a croissant) 🥐. It is so often people go out for dinner or drinks, but how about a breakfast? (If you can) I definitely recommend treating yourself to a spontaneous breakfast this week. Not a bagel from Tim Hortons or something from the Starbucks drive-thru, but a sit down, enjoy your surroundings breakfast. 🍊 Cheers!
Sometimes you just need a sunset…
As previously mentioned the theme these days in Rome has been surviving. If I were to tell you the things I’ve had to go through the past couple of months since returning I think a lot of you would question why I am still here or how I am still sane. However, I understand I am in a period of contrast in life and the brightness is just around the corner… I must persevere as the only way out is through. My blog and my channel is a place for positivity so I will not be going into much more detail (but just know, I go through difficult times too). I have already taken the time to vent about such issues with my closest friends (sorry guys! 🙈) and have began to take more time for myself, read and repeat affirmations and organize my life to the best I can. Sometimes we just need a sunset, something to grant us a pure moment of beauty to understand why all of the chaos makes sense. Thank you Rome, for granting me the craziest of chaos, yet the most beautiful moments. 🧡
Have a beautiful weekend friends ❤️
