Five Things Friday: October 19

Hi Friends,

I feel like I’ve been all over the world this week and it has been so wonderful ๐Ÿ˜Š Here are the highlights:

Pizzeria Ostiense

I couldn’t leave Italy without a stop at Pizzeria Ostiense. Sofie and I spent a beautiful day exploring Roma and catching up, and to top it off we had my favourite Pizza Romana ๐Ÿ˜ I don’t look excited at all! We even ate outside because the weather was still warm enough ๐ŸŒดโ˜€๏ธ

 

Unplanned Trip to Paris

I didn’t plan to be in Paris for long this week – originally my layover was 2 hours; however the Universe had a much different and perhaps more favourable plan for me โœจ The truth is – I could sit here and complain about the inconvenience of the airline of my overseas flight going bankrupt, cancelling all flights and having to fork over almost $1500 to get a new flight last minute – OR – I could take control of my situation, trust the Universe is working in my favour and enjoy a full day of LIVING in Paris – yoga by the canal, a picnic and a visit to the Eiffel Tower โค๏ธ I’m so grateful for this spontaneous gift of a trip, and to my amazing friend Cheryl for spending it with me! ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

TORONTO ๐Ÿ’™

I love this city and wow, it feels good to be back. So many memories of inspiration, love and finding myself. Although I was born and raised on Vancouver Island, I grew up in Toronto. This city will always feel the most comfortable for me. If you’re curious about my journey and have not yet read Beauty and the Breakdown (my first and favourite book) it is now available worldwide as a PDF download. You can check it out here ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

I feel Home

As mentioned above I feel the most comfortable in Toronto. I feel a bit of reverse culture shock happening since being away from Canada for almost a year… Upon stepping off the airplane and breathing in all that fresh air, spending the day running around Toronto and seeing familiar faces, I feel a huge sense of home and pride. Proud to be Canadian โค๏ธ

 

Nicole!

Nicole and I met almost 6 years ago studying abroad in Cuba ๐ŸŒด Who would have thought 6 years later we would still be having tons of fun, laughter and smiles in the city of Toronto? ๐Ÿ˜Š I’m so grateful we spontaneously met in the Caribbean, wound up living in the same city and even though I’ve been gone for almost 2 years are still such great friends today ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค— Love you Nic!

Five Things Friday: October 12

Happy Friday Friends ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope it has been an amazing week for you! Here are my highlights from lovely Lazio:

Afternoon with Elyssa!

I spent Saturday afternoon with Elyssa! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ We had a delicious vegan lunch at Cul de Sac near Piazza Navona and then checked out the piazza post-showers for some photography ๐Ÿ“ธ The puddles made for some beautiful captures which were visible on my InstaStory – Are you following along? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will miss you Roma

This was my last week in Roma for almost 2 months. Every time I am about to leave Rome starts to look even more beautiful (if that’s possible) and some “FOMO” starts to kick in ๐Ÿ˜œ I know amazing adventures await me on the other side though ๐Ÿ’› I can’t wait to see my family.ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Garden of Ninfa

On Sunday I visited the beautiful Garden of Ninfa with my friend Diego. Diego is actually a Patreon of mine, so it was so great to finally meet in person and enjoy such a lovely day together! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒป The Garden of Ninfa is such a unique place; Its very special microclimate allows for EVERYTHING to grow ๐ŸŒฑ Throughout the Garden you can spot plants, flowers and trees from all over the world ๐ŸŒ They can also grow up to 3x their size! How magically incredible! For photos and facts from the Garden of Ninfa you can check out my Instagram Stories.

Rooftops with my Girls

What more could I ask for than an evening with these ladies watching the sunset over Rome? ๐Ÿงก Ci vediamo presto amores!

Good Vibrations!

As I mentioned last week, the Universe has been clearing out some energies and bringing some lessons to light for a while now, and I am finally feeling clear again. I know a new chapter is about to unfold and adventure is just around the corner – I couldn’t be more prepared or excited for it! ๐Ÿ˜„ Andiamo!

Five Things Friday: September 14

Ciao Amici!

I hope you have had an amazing week so far ๐Ÿ˜Š Here are my highlights from The Eternal City:

 

Autumn is Coming

Although we’ve consistently been in the high 20’s and even 30’s this week ๐Ÿ˜› the leaves are starting to change and I can’t help but to fall in love with Roma all over again! ๐Ÿ‚

 

Leftover Pasta in Campo

Monday afternoon after class I decided to enjoy pranzo (๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น: lunch) in Campo de’ Fiori for a nice change. This piazza is always bustling and full of life. I plan to make more of an effort to enjoy my lunches outdoors – even if it means my pasta is cold ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’s totally worth it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

 

Canadians of ROME!

On Tuesday night I attended the first event of the season for the Canadian Club of Rome ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ We enjoyed a lovely Aperitivo on the rooftop of Palazzo Montemartini. The sun set so beautifully and I was in attendance with two of my favourite people: Anastasiya & Elyssa! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ I am so excited to have joined the club for the year, it’s going to be a great one. Eh!? ๐Ÿ˜›

Nights out in September

This week NSP & DNG have been in town! We’ve had some amazing, inspiring conversations, however whenever that happens we always forget to take a selfie ๐Ÿ˜› So this beautiful shot will have to do to represent a wonderful evening of deep conversations and big ideas ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ To the #GrandeFuturo โœจ

 

I’ll be Speaking in Rome Next Week!

For those of you who follow along from The Eternal City I will be speaking at The Yellow Hostel on Wednesday, September 19th at 18:00 ๐Ÿ˜Š I am looking forward to meeting some of you and inspiring you along your journeys. Hope to see you there โค๏ธ Sign up for the event here!

Five Things Friday: Aug 31

Buongiorno Friends!

Can you believe it’s already the end of August! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Wow, wow, wow! Today I am off to Ibiza, Spain for Summer’s last hoorah with the girls ๐Ÿ˜Š 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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜„ I hope I am still rollarblading over 80, just like our pal Franco! ๐Ÿ˜ย ย FUN FACT:ย 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! โ˜€๏ธ 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 ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น 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! ๐Ÿ˜„

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 ๐Ÿ˜„โœˆ๏ธโ˜€๏ธ I am so grateful to have such an amazing friend and soul sister in my life ๐Ÿ’•

 

Roma by Night

I’m not sure if there’s anything more dreamy than Rome by night โœจ 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) ๐Ÿน 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 ๐Ÿ’›โœจ

Off to Ibiza we go!

Five Things Friday: Aug 24

Hi Friends!

I hope you all had an amazing week ๐Ÿ˜Š It’s been another beautiful one in Italy. Here are the highlights:

Helicopters & Khaled!

Last weekend our amazing friend Khaled from Jordan came to visit. We took a helicopter tour above beautiful Lazio! (You can see the adventure on my Instagram highlights). This was especially cool because we got to see Tivoli from above, one of the most magical places I have ever been! Perfect for manifesting big dreams ๐Ÿคฉโœจ

 

Negroni Infused Watermelon

Yup, you read that right. Last weekend we dined at the Michelin โญ๏ธ restaurant All’Oro and WOW, this meal will go down in history, not only due to it’s food, but it’s powerful conversation and wonderful people. The whole tasting menu I had was vegan – how amazing there are such options nowadays ๐Ÿค— There are no words for how delicious this meal was ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒฟ

Friends in the City

This week I was so fortunate to have so many amazing people in the city! In addition to Khaled there was Sarah, Rafa and Jo! ๐Ÿ˜Š I met Sarah earlier this year in Paris and we clicked right away, she is truly a truly wonderful person. Full of ambition and natural beauty inside and out – you can find her YouTube channel here. Rafa and Jo were visiting Roma all the way from Chile! ๐ŸŒŽ The last time I saw Rafa was when I was backpacking Europe at age 20 ๐ŸŽ’ We had the most incredible time in Corfu, Greece and now we have even more memories from along the Lungotevere in Roma ๐Ÿ˜Šโœจ

 

For the Life-Curious

Those of you who know me personally or follow along on my Instagram KNOW I am a bit of a quote junkie ๐Ÿ˜œ this is why I LOVED listening to The Daily Stoic on Blinkist. Full of wisdom from Stoic Philosophers you can get so much knowledge from this title in a bite-size package ๐Ÿ“– Do you ever feel that sometimes books find you rather than you find them? ๐Ÿค” This is exactly how I felt soaking up these insights – all about how to handle this crazy, beautiful thing called life… I highly recommend this download and you can get it for FREE on a 7-day trial from Blinkist, get it by clicking here ๐Ÿ˜Š Be sure to write me and let me know what you think!

 

Unstoppable Sis

This week my sister Anastasiya was there for me (as per usual) but sometimes we lean on our friends more than other times ๐Ÿ’› whether it be from working through my Italian to making me lemon tea while I fight off a cold ๐Ÿคง I am so grateful I have such an unstoppable, inspiring sis who is family to me ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ

Five Things Friday: July 27

Hi Friends!

I hope you’re having a great week so far ๐Ÿ˜Š This week has been eventful from Roma to Toscana ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Here are the highlights:

Returning to Rome

Returning to Rome is one of my favourite experiences, but this time after returning from two full weeks in Croatia, it was different. This time when I returned, of course it felt like I was coming home, but it felt a little more solid (and exciting!) because I have a Permesso to stay… and I don’t plan on leaving, ever ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t describe this intense love I feel each time I get off the plane or the train, but it truly is one of the best emotions I have ever experienced. It feels like falling in love (I think?) I always look forward to re-experiencing it. Have you ever felt this way about a city? If you have, I hope it’s the one you call home ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

Learning About Love

Have you ever read The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman? ๐Ÿ“˜ I recently read this book on my favourite self-improvement app – Blinkist! ๐Ÿคฉ Gary discusses the feeling of love and his theories on the different languages in which people feel the love from their significant other. For me my love language (the way I most feel the affection and “love” of others) is when someone spends quality time with me ๐Ÿ’‘ I have always been a person who thrives off of meaningful conversations and experiences shared together so to me this makes sense! The other love languages include: Acts of Service, Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation and Gifts. Understanding your own love language and your partner’s love language can benefit your relationship in numerous ways as you truly will be able to communicate better on a different level ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ Which Love Language are you? If you have not yet read this book you can download it for free on a 7-day trial from Blinkist! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Click here to get it now!

 

Moonlight

Roma by moonlight is magic ๐ŸŒ• โœจ On Sunday night I joined friends for an amazing dinner and after walked around the eternal city ๐Ÿ› The beauty of this city so often stops me and I find myself gaping in awe and wonder – How beautiful, mysterious and enchanting is the Pantheon by night? I am still stunned even after two years and I’m sure I will be for the rest of this lifetime.

 

Piscine Termali Theia

Did you know Tuscany has natural spas? ๐Ÿ’ฆ On Thursday Anastasiya and I spent the day at Piscine Termali Theia – soaking up the sun โ˜€๏ธ and soaking in the Silene Spring water. The views were stunning and green and the air smelled of lavender as it was planted all around ๐ŸŒฟ This spa visit was the perfect combination of relaxing, rejuvenating and even historical as the Etruscans used to use this natural spring water to heal the body. These waters are rich in carbon dioxide and calcium carbonate which have an anti-inflammatory effect on the musculoskeletal system and are quite beneficial on the skin… and let me tell you, I felt it! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

 

Terme Sensoriali

This morning started out like a dream โœจ I woke up in beautiful, scenic Tuscany ๐ŸŒป and got to spend the morning relaxing and energizing at Terme Sensoriali ๐Ÿคฉ (Sometimes I still need to pinch myself from this life I have created for myself… I am so grateful ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ ) This spa was especially unique because it wasn’t just a spa where you can have treatments ๐Ÿง–๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ – it was a spa with multiple treatment and experiential rooms! The sensory spa (in English) represents the perfect mix among the thermal experience, naturopathy and the enchanting Tuscan countryside. Some of my favourite experiences include an aromatherapy room, a shower of essential oils, a “river” where you can massage your feet on natural pebbles… it felt like an absolute dream and I can’t wait to share my travel diary with you and plan my next trip! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Five Things Friday: June 8

Hi Friends,

Today I am writing you from the Amalfi Coast in Italy! ๐Ÿ˜ One of my very favourite places in the world. It has been an amazing week in the eternal city and on the coast so here are the highlights:

Cruising into the Sunset

On Friday night Rodelio was in town! He manifested a beautiful luxury convertible and picked us up for dinner in it! ๐Ÿคฉ What an exciting surprise. We were all smiles and you can see more on my Instagram highlights. We cruised around Roma, up to Gianicolo and absorbed all of the golden light and views. After that was dinner at his restaurant “Me Geisha” – I’ve shown this stunning restaurant off in a previous video, you can check it out here. The night was full of conversations all about the greatest mystery and blessing of life. ๐Ÿ’ซ

 

New Views

Trust Romewise to take you to the most epic rooftops of Rome – Elyssa sure knows her stuff! When it comes to memorable last minute get-togethers this Aperitivo has bumped it’s way to the top of my list. This beautiful view of the city and the Pantheon can be found at the The Pantheon Iconic Hotel in Rome. I know I will return here for another Aperitivo (or two ๐Ÿ˜‹) this Summer โ˜€๏ธ

 

VICTORY

First of all, how scary is this building!? Thankfully my appointment for my Permesso and VISA extension wasn’t that scary thanks to Sof! ๐Ÿ˜Š Sofie took me to my appointment on Monday morning to help me with my documents and translation, I don’t know what I would have done without her and I am so grateful.ย  I am staying in Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นย  I have paid tuition for the next year of Italian classes so I have been able to extend my student visa ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ‰

 

BC’s Finest

LOOK WHO IT IS!!! On Wednesday I was so lucky to have Alicia and Mikaela arrive from British Columbia. These two girls have been my best friends since University times and they never cease to amaze me! Having them here feels like home isn’t so far away. Thank you for your amazing friendship that lasts through years and miles ๐Ÿ’› Can’t wait for all of the adventures that await us here in Italia!ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

Costiera Amalfitana

There is no place in the world I feel more infinite than the Amalfi Coast. There’s just something so magical about this special part of Italy… maybe it’s because this is where I fell in love with Italy to a whole new level last year, so much so – I decided to do whatever I could to stay. And this is what I have done. Italia ti amo e spero che tu ami anche me. โค๏ธ

PS: if you didn’t know last week I mentioned I launched a fundraising campaign to support BILLION BABY TURTLES. There is merchandise available in the form of shirts and totes and if merch isn’t your thing there is a GoFundMe page ๐Ÿค— $1 can save up to 5 hatchlings!๐Ÿข Get involved!

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

PS: if you didn’t know last week I mentioned I launched a fundraising campaign to support BILLION BABY TURTLES. There is merchandise available in the form of shirts and totes and if merch isn’t your thing there is a GoFundMe page ๐Ÿค— $1 can save up to 5 hatchlings!๐Ÿข Get involved!

Five Things Friday: April 6

Hi Friends!

I hope you’ve all had a great week. I have been in Rome and I can definitely say Spring is upon us! ๐ŸŒท 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 ๐Ÿค”). 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! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ

 

100,000 Subscribers!

100K happened this week on April 1st and it was no joke! ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ‰ I am so incredibly grateful for every single one of you who have ever watched, liked, commented or subscribed to my YouTube channel โค๏ธ Your support means so much to me ๐Ÿ˜Š 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.

 

Special Visitors

The day Gabby left I was also gifted with more visitors! Manesha, Shaguna and Aahana ๐Ÿ˜Š it has been great to have such wonderful sisters here to chat about life and enjoy the city while the weather has been shining โ˜€๏ธ I love when I watch other people fall in love with Rome (it seems to have that effect on a lot of people ๐Ÿ˜‰) We have some awesome plans for the weekend too! Be sure to follow along on Instagram to watch the adventures unfold. ๐Ÿ“ธ

 

Spontaneous Colazione

I recently discovered this cute cafe on a side street near my apartment. They even have vegan cornetti! ๐Ÿฅ If you didn’t know the typical Italian breakfast consists of a spremuta (orange juice) ๐ŸŠ, a cappuccino โ˜•๏ธ and a cornetto (also known as a croissant) ๐Ÿฅ. 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. ๐ŸŠ 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! ๐Ÿ™ˆ) 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. ๐Ÿงก

Have a beautiful weekend friends โค๏ธ

xx Zo

Five Things Friday: March 30

Ciao Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful week. From Amsterdam to Rome, here are the highlights:

VidCon Amsterdam

Last weekend I attended my first ever VidCon ๐ŸŽ‰ It was a great time with both new friends and old and I left feeling very inspired to take my channel and content to the next level. I have uploaded one video on my main channel from Amsterdam (so far) and have 3 unlisted videos for Patrons only (PS. it’s never too late to join as you always have access to previous private content posted such as livestreams and private videos).

 

I Went Shopping!

Yes, the minimalist stops sometimes.. rarely, but when i do I prefer it to be inspiring and uplifting! It should be a celebration of a something meeting your vibrational level and thus being invited into your life (to understand more of my take on this you can read my book The Joy of Minimalism). Sofie, Mackenzie and I went for a little adventure one afternoon in Amsterdam and I cam across the beautiful dress pictured above in a shop called Sibine. The young woman who owned the shop, Simmie, was so incredibly kind to all of us and made our experience so fun! It was something out of a movie – all of us girls oogling over pretty dresses and trying them all on. I ended leaving with the stunning dress photographed above and another which will be perfect for my adventures this Summer! All of the pieces in Sibine are hand picked by Simmie, and you can tell, she prides her shop in quality.

 

Returning to Rome

This one has been on my favourites before… ๐Ÿ˜Š There’s just something about landing at Fiumicino Airport that always gets me feeling energetic and inspired. Rome is home and although I know the journey will not be a smooth one to live here, I am all-in (as everything in life should be).

The Sunshine has also returned to Rome and its really starting to feel like Primavera! ๐ŸŒธ I am anticipating the return of the jasmine blossoms ๐ŸŒผ – they create the most wonderful atmosphere throughout the city with their delicate, intriguing scent.

 

Gabby is HERE!

This past Summer in Ibiza little did I know I would meet one of my sisters in life! ๐Ÿ˜‹ I am so thrilled to report Gabby booked a spontaneous trip to Rome for 4 days from San Diego, California (as this is the only time she had off) and decided to spend it in Roma with me! ๐Ÿคฉ SO if you wanted that extra little bit of travel inspiration, well there it is! She is one of a kind and I am so grateful for her friendship ๐Ÿค—ย Check out one of our videos together here!

 

#GRANDEFUTURO Merchandise!

FINALLY! This has been so hard to keep a secret ๐Ÿคซ: Cheryl, Sofie, Mackenzie & I (all photographed above) launched our very own “Grande Futuro” merchandise. In this launch you will find both crew necks and unisex tee shirts. “Grande Futuro” means your “great future” a term we coined to always refer to living, dreaming, manifesting and working towards our greatest futures in life! They’reย available until April 12th so be sure to get yours here! ๐Ÿ˜Š
