Five Things Friday: Aug 31

Buongiorno Friends!

Can you believe it’s already the end of August! 😮 Wow, wow, wow! Today I am off to Ibiza, Spain for Summer’s last hoorah with the girls 😊 Here’s what I’ve been up to this week in Rome:

Rollarblading!

Yes! As you guys may have already seen in this week’s episode of Zoey’s Diary, I have really been enjoying rollarblading. It reminds me so much of being a kid and it has proven to be an amazing outdoor workout 🙌🏽😄 I hope I am still rollarblading over 80, just like our pal Franco! 😁  FUN FACT: one of our amazing friends, Irene, let me know Franco only started rollarblading when he was 59! Anything is possible my friends, anything.

 

Back to School

I didn’t mention it to you guys last week, but I am officially back to school in Rome! ☀️ I am so excited about it because although it feels like it has been a long, slow journey of learning Italian it is a journey that I very much enjoy 🇮🇹 The pieces and rules of the language are connecting in my brain more and more every day – it’s a beautiful thing!

 

Gaby is hereeeee! 😄

I can’t believe I have only known this girl less than a year! Gaby and I actually met last year in Ibiza and have since then met up in San Diego, gone on a road trip to Tijuana and Ensenada and she’s come to visit me in Roma already once this year – at this rate we have infinite amounts of adventures in the future 😄✈️☀️ I am so grateful to have such an amazing friend and soul sister in my life 💕

 

Roma by Night

I’m not sure if there’s anything more dreamy than Rome by night ✨ It’s been a while since I’d taken a good long walk in the evening to admire the beautifully lit buildings, monuments, live music and the exhibition along the Lungotevere. Gaby and I had a fun adventure down to Trastevere on Wednesday for a cocktail (or two) 🍹 While the air is still warm and Summery I plan to do this more throughout September.

 

Being Girly Girls

Our house has been full of fun, fashion and laughter this week. Having Gaby here has added another sister to the mix so of course we have had so much fun exchanging clothes, dressing up and talking all about the Universe in our PJ’s. I can’t believe Summer is coming to an end, but what a special way to end it with my amazing girls 💛✨

Off to Ibiza we go!

Five Things Friday: February 9th

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a #GRANDE week! 😀 Despite having a pretty bad cold, I have some fun highlights to share:

 

Cena con Rodelio

On Friday evening I caught up with one of my amazing friends here in Rome, chef Rodelio, also known as The Food Buddha. This dinner was filled with amazing food and conversations all about life journeys and what we hope to accomplish in 2018. I am so grateful for all of my friends here in Rome, as I feel a sense of family now – family who all share the same love for Rome. Fun coincidence: Rodelio has taken the same self-improvement course I am enrolled in in London in a couple of weeks!

 

The Tangerine Lining

I had had been battling a cough and cold from back in Canada and this week it finally caught up with me. Unfortunately this put a few things in my life on hold, but on the positive side it is citrus season in Italy! I have enjoyed spoiling myself with nature’s candy 🍊 Have you ever tried an Italian orange? Or a glass of freshly squeezed Italian orange juice? If you haven’t yet, you MUST put it on your bucket list! Italian oranges taste like sunshine ☀️ – that’s the only way I can give any kind of justice to their description. There is always a silver lining in every unpleasant situation, in this case it is tangerine in colour.

 

Back to School!

Back to school! I never thought I would ever say that… Life surprises you sometimes doesn’t it? I’ve actually been more excited to attend school this week than I ever have in my entire life. I am loving learning more about my favourite language. Italian is so beautiful it feels like I am studying art, I suppose I am. 😊

 

The Universe’s Gym

I took a few days off of the gym because I was sick. When I was ready to go back I decided to attend a 15 minute spin class followed by a 15 minute stretching class to ease myself back into it… or so I thought. I raced to the gym from school on Wednesday to make it to spin on time. I was parched when I arrived, but thought I would be fine for 15 minutes. It turns out there was actually a typo on the class schedule and the 15 minute spin class (I thought I was in for) was actually a 55 minute INTENSIVE class! Here’s to jumping back in head first! 🤣 “The Universe always has a plan much greater than yours,” and in this case the Universe did not want me cutting corners on my goal of hitting a minimum of 3 classes per week. 😉

 

My Italian Little Brothers

Yesterday evening I went to visit my Italian family! 😊 This is the family that I au-paired for when I first arrived in Roma. I brought my Italian little brothers these little Kinder Sorpresa (as they are their favourite) and they showed me all of their new toys from the holidays! We played Best Fiends and watched one of their favourite movies right now: The Emoji Movie 😋 …Oh to be a kid again! These trilingual little ones continue to inspire me, and I’m looking forward to spending more time with them while I am here. Hopefully soon, I will be able to speak Italian with them!
