Have you had enough of my love for Rome or happy for more? This is my last one from Rome, for this year at least. It's a short and sweet post, sharing a few important touristic attractions like the "Altare della patria" and "fori imperiali". I have to say that "Fori imperiali" really impressed me with it's grandiosity and beauty. I won't start again as all I've been talking about is fabulous Rome, so I'll just leave you with these last few pictures from my trip. Have you been enjoying these fashion-travel posts? Do let me know if you'd like more! 

On another note, this month has been progressing well so far and something fun is coming up starting with Wednesday, so make sure to come back. Hope you babes love what I have planned for you! I'm pretty excited, but more details will follow Wednesday! 

Have a pink-tastic day!

Rome is one of the most historically rich cities in the world, having one of the most influential history in the world. Walking around the center is like being in a museum. Every corner hides a picturesque view just waiting to be discovered. Additionally  it's possibly one of the most photogenic cities, not to mention the to-die-for food. Italian food in general is amazing, but food in Rome was out of this world. If given the opportunity I would fly out to Rome just to have a pasta dish and enjoy the Roman atmosphere. 

This wasn't my first time visiting Rome, I had traveled there on vacation with my family when I was in high school. That time around it hadn't amazed me as much and every time someone would tell me its their favorite city I would remain unfazed. It took me coming back to Rome to realize two things. Firstly, the first time I visited we barely saw anything. We visited a few of the touristic attractions and that's it, so understandably I wasn't impressed. Secondly, when you visit a city or country as an adult, you'll always view it with a different perspective. I fell in love with every corner, every cobblestone and every building! It's astonishing and when you think about the history of the city it amazes you even more. I would definitely go back hence why I threw a coin in the Trevi fountain

Fun fact: we've all heard the axiom "All the roads lead to Rome" and while being on one of the original Roman roads I asked where that saying came from. My funny boyfriend explained to me that it was logical all the roads would lead to Rome as they were built out of Rome, which obviously makes sense yet we never think about it logically, so I like the proverb interpretation that all the methods of doing something will lead to the same result in the end. 

Did you know this fun Roman fact?

Kind regards,

December is here, literally can't believe it's almost the end of the year! I love the festive season and the Christmas spirit in the air and will definitely create some gift inspos for you guys. Admittedly I haven't been very consistent with blogging this year, despite my wish to create more content. How ironic is that? I made it a goal last year to post more often and instead it has been my least consistent year since starting blogging. It's not pictures I was lacking as much as the inspiration to write. Hopefully this block will come to an end with the beginning of the festive season because I have loads of ideas! Before we get into the festivities there are a few more pictures to share from my trip to Rome. Prepare for touristy overload from Rome! Not much to say, except how amazing Rome is!

Have you visited Rome?

Victorian influences in fashion have to be some of my favorite, especially the sleeve details and shapes. The bright and vivid colored clothing items, as well as the delicate materials are also one of the factors that make me appreciate this fashion era. McQueen does a gorgeous modern interpretation of the Victorian style and has a few of my most loved pieces, but thanks to the rise of the style in the past few years we can find similar styles from high street. This dress isn't new to the blog, however I can't get over how perfect it is - to me at least, which is why I keep on sharing ways to wear it. The first time I saw it I fell in love and had to have it! The mix between the puffed yet flared sleeves, with lace and the gorgeous color got me. What's amazing is that even after a year, I still see it the same and look for occasions to wear it. 

Did you ever find a clothing item you fell in love with and feel the same year after year ?

I finally managed to go to the beach this year! Woohoo! Unfortunately the water was already too cold for my tasting so I only got my feet inside for a bit, but it was still lovely. I've mentioned this multiple times - the seaside is my happy place. Everything from the salty smell in the air to the calming sound of the waves brings me joy. Next year I need to plan a proper seaside holiday, even if it's for a few days. It's so important for your mental health to do things that keep you balanced and bring you bliss. Spending time at the seaside helps me reset and put everything into perspective. I'm already looking forward to so many trips that are coming, keep tuned for that especially on my Instagram as you'll always see it there first!

Ciao tutti! Benvenuti a Roma or my Rome vlog since we're not actually all in Rome at the moment, unfortunately. This was my second time visiting Rome, but my first time as an adult which was a totally different experience than when I traveled there in high school. The first thing I realized was how little I had seen from Rome that time around. Even now, there was still so much to visit. Hopefully next time we'll have more time to explore Rome and obviously more time to eat. Food in Italy is delicious in general, but I discovered a few new dishes this time around that I would eat weekly if I could. In this vlog I'm taking you around Rome and showing you my outfits. Hope you enjoy it and subscribe for more.

PS: Yes, I do speak Italian 😼

If there was ever a time to feel like a princess it was in Malaga in the gorgeous Alcazaba. Wandering and running around started with the idea of capturing that perfect photograph, but it was so playful  that my heart really got into it. It was so fun and dreamy that I felt like a princess, though my shoe choice wasn't the most inspired. It may look cute, but even mid heels on cobble stone are weird not to mention it made me loose my balance at times. I do love these sling-backs though, they are beautiful and comfortable on pavement. To be fair, I couldn't imagine a more perfect look for this fantastic location. Isn't it the dreamiest place?

Have a pink-tastic day!
