Five Things Friday: July 13th

Happy Friday the 13th Friends!

Don’t fear – We have a cheerful post ahead 😊 A week filled with sunshine, sea and smiles in Croazia!

REUNITED

Reunited with my GRANDE crew! 🀩 The last time Cheryl, Sofie an I were all together was in Amsterdam for VidCon. Each time we reunite it is like we have never spent any time apart. I am always so thankful the Universe brought me these Euro-YouTube Life-Genuine-GRANDE-friendships. 🧑

 

Au Naturale

Even a year ago when I spent the summer backpacking Europe I felt very self-conscious about not wearing any makeup.

Makeup been a ritual every morning for me since I began experimenting with it as a teenager (Yup, experimenting is the right word – you bet I wore thick, black eyeliner on the bottom lid). Because I wore makeup more often than not – through school, corporate life, travel life – I don’t think I fully knew what I looked like without it, nor was I entirely comfortable without it.

When I moved back to Rome at the end of January (this year) I began to practice not wearing makeup every day. This sparked from being so relieved to have my Visa in hand and feeling grateful for the Universe working it all out in my favour that I took a big, long, reflective look in the mirror… and noticed that I looked absolutely exhausted.

It was a long trek back to Rome after living out of a suitcase for 8 Months – being fog-locked, having flights cancelled, snow storms – I saw it all – I suppose you could say it was the storm before the calm.

In that reflective moment in the mirror I decided it was time to give my skin a break, my face a break, myself a serious break. I needed to see my glow come back (I was in my favourite city after all! β˜€οΈ) From then on and in present times I only wear makeup when I have a special occasion or genuinely feel like being creative with my appearance. It has allowed for a new respect for myself to blossom. Every day I am more comfortable with me because on a visual level I see me more. Makeup might sound silly to some of you, but for me letting go of it more regularly has allowed for a lot more clarity, not only in my skin, but for me too.

 

Spritzin’ with Penelope!

This week was full of laughter and Penelope was definitely responsible for some good bursts of it! πŸ˜œπŸ¦„ I think we all need to be a kid now and again. I’m happy I was able to let go of responsibilities and worries on this trip (for the most part) and live in the moment… I felt like a kid again and it was special because I realize it’s been far too long. I’m sorry for not posting on YouTube this week – I will be back again soon ❀️

 

Hula Hula in HVAR

This. Is. Us. πŸ€£πŸ˜„ More and more laughter here in Hvar πŸ“Έ We had a grande night out – dancing by the sea, sharing a giant mojito and enjoying one of the best sunsets I have ever seen 🌞These moments will live in my memories forever. Thanks for making this trip so grande Amores!

 

Thank-you MedSailors!

Thank you so much to MedSailors for the amazing week at sea 😊 A week exploring Croatia with our Captain Jo and the MedSailors crew was the perfect combination of adventure, relaxation, touring and fun! β˜€οΈ I can’t wait to share my Travel Diaries with you. Croatia has so much natural beauty, I know you’re going to love it! For anyone wanting to explore the beautiful parts of this world by the sea MedSailors offers tours in Croatia, Greece, Italy, Turkey and the Caribbean! 🀩 I can’t wait to see more of this world by boat! ⛡️

*Special thanks again to MedSailors for sponsoring this holiday & post.

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 πŸŽ‰ 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… 😊 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! 🌸 I am anticipating the return of the jasmine blossoms 🌼 – 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! πŸ˜‹ 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! 🀩 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 πŸ€—Β Check out one of our videos together here!

 

#GRANDEFUTURO Merchandise!

FINALLY! This has been so hard to keep a secret 🀫: 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’reΒ available until April 12th so be sure to get yours here! 😊
