Five Things Friday: June 29

Hi Friends!

I hope you’ve had an amazing week so far 😄 From the Eternal City, I bring you my highlights:

Always Self-Improving

“A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.” 😊 It’s been a whirlwind of fun and adventurous times having my friends from Canada here for the past month so on Sunday I took a little “me-Day” to focus on relaxing and self-Improvement. I decided to listen to the book “Off The Clock” after I saw it quoted on Blinkist’s Instagram page. It turns out it was exactly what I needed to listen to to allow myself to feel motivated and inspired to live my best life even when I feel the “busyness” up ahead of me overwhelming. Special thanks to Blinkist for sponsoring this post and allowing all of my friends to receive a 7-day free trial from the app! (click here to get it) If you didn’t already know Blinkist allows you to read or listen to the titles of over 2,000 books in 15 minutes or less. Consider treating your brain to some knowledge this weekend 😄 I recommend “Off The Clock.”


Rooftops with my Romafam

Sometimes all you need is a night on a rooftop with your girls, or in this case my “RomaFam.” Anastasiya and Elyssa both feel like my family and I am so grateful to have them in my life. They’re the type of people you feel like you have known forever because sometimes they know you better than you even know yourself ❤️ I am so lucky!


Wadi Rum Memories

If you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel you know this week I have been pumping out the content from my life-changing trip to Jordan. This week I published Wadi Rum, Petra and The Dead Sea – have you checked them out yet? 😄 I personally think Wadi Rum is one of my favourite videos I have ever made.


Thinking about the future…

I’ve been in solid reflection mode for about a week now – maybe it’s the new moon? 🌝 I’ve been thinking a lot about my life so far, the path I have carved out for myself, what I have learnt and what is next for me… I feel excited and ambitious. Yesterday evening I had a call with my life coach and I think I have finally begun to push away a large block when it comes to trust and relationships. Here’s to a #GrandeFuturo 🥂❤️



if you’ve followed along on my journey (especially my Zoey’s Diary series or if you are part of my Patreon community) you know that wifi is a serious issue here in Rome. The reason is because the centre of Rome is so old they have not yet placed a fibre underground which grants the city good wifi – I know, first world problems 🙈 – but when you work online this is a BIG problem! Normally it takes anywhere from 6-12 hours for me to upload a YouTube video… just to give you an idea. But finally, after months of searching for a cafe with good wifi, EX-CIRCUS (formerly Circus) has opened back up! Can you hear the angels!? I was finally able to conduct a clear stable livestream with my Patreon audience! Woohoo and thank you to all of you who tuned in 😊
