Five Things Friday: June 1

Hi Friends!

Happy Fri-yay! ๐Ÿคฉ This week’s Five Things Friday covers my trip to Porto ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น and back to Roma! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Here are the highlights:

The Beach in Portugal

Even though the overall weather was cooler in Portugal (15-20 degrees) we had a beautiful couple of days at the beach. I love the sea so much ๐Ÿ˜Š We spent the days listening to good music, talking about life, playing on SUP boards, swimming and jumping in the waves. It was sunny, I was surrounded by some of the best people in my life and truly, there was nowhere I would have rather beenย โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น


We met on YouTube

I met these beautiful souls on YouTube! ๐Ÿ’• Photographed is Cheryl from NonStopParis and Kia from Kia Charlotta (they’re kind of big deals). I still remember talking to these girls via YouTube comments when I was back in Toronto. Who would have ever thought we would become the greatest of friends? Thank you for brightening my life ladies ๐Ÿ’› I am so grateful.


La Grande Bellezza

You’re getting a lot of selfies from me this week! I suppose that is because we are all smiles in summertime ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜€๏ธ This is my best friend Aaron who is visiting from Canada! On Wednesday evening we went for aperitivo at La Grande Bellezza at Piazza Navona. This rooftop is stunning and grants you an amazing 360 view of Rome (you can find it in my Instagram highlights). We each tried a fun cocktail ๐Ÿน and had great conversation with the couple who sat beside us. You never know who you’re going to meet ๐Ÿ˜Š thank you for inspiring me!


Pinch me! Pincio!

Can you spot San Pietro? Yesterday evening I went for a run up at Pincio in Villa Borghese. If you have never been you must put this on your list for your next trip to Roma! Pincio grants you a sweeping view over Rome and watching the sunset here will make you fall all the more in love with the eternal city. ๐Ÿ’ซ


Ciampini Thursday

Anastasiya and I have been planning to go to Ciampini on a Thursday for MONTHS! Something has always come up wether it was work or weather, but finally we got a golden hour at our favourite place! ๐Ÿ’ซ It was a grande evening of manifestation and law of attraction talks. It’s never a dull moment with my sister. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ
