Rome Diary Day 3 pt.1 – Angels Watching Over The City

We’re onto Day 3 of my Rome Diary! If you missed my previous posts, follow the links below: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were Otherwise, let’s get started! Making Our Way To The Bridge and Across At this point, we were still able to use our Hop-On, Hop-Off 48h bus pass that we had bought the previous day. It’s a good thing that we used this method because although am sure the Metro is convenient, you still need to change lines and be mindful of what stop you’re at. Being on the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus keeps your mind off such stress plus you can sight-see on-board in fresh air rather than be trapped in a tunnel! 😛 Here are a few photographs that I took along this bus journey which was about 45 minutes or so: 🔺Circus Maximus 🔺Piazza Venezia Angels Watching Over The …

Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were

The travel diary continues! Firstly, I apologise for the long break in-between this post and my last post regarding my not-so-recent trip to Rome (which was over a month ago, gosh). This month has been particularly busy and even with the seemingly longer days, the hours never multiply but stay the same! However, I’ve managed to fit in a bit of spare time to continue this travel series and wrap it up! This isn’t the last post by all means, but one needs to finish what one starts. Let’s focus on ending Day 2 first shall we? If you missed my last 2 posts of this series: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Roma Lunchin’ From where I left off in my last post, we were heading for lunch just so we could savour some energy and rest our feet a bit from all the walking so far! We came across a small cafe which was …

Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What The Romans Made + Detail Envy

Hello beautiful people! Today, I’m continuing my Rome Diary posts! We are onto Day 2, so if you missed Day 1, feel free to catch up here. I took a whole load of photos in Rome so don’t be surprised if this ends up being photo-heavy. In these posts, I try my best to reiterate the experience that I had in photo-form! Enjoy. 🙂 Morning Roma! I don’t know how you all travel but generally speaking, you make the most out of your day to go out early and explore! That means needing a lot of energy to start your day off so breakfast should absolutely not be missed (just like any other day haha). Having breakfast at the hotel just always makes things 10x easier because it’s technically free plus you don’t have to spend time searching for food when you could be going sight-seeing. So rule #1: eat well! Figuring Out Travel Route + Transport (Travel Tip) When traveling, I don’t really believe in sticking solidly to travel itineraries and timetables. I think …

Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi

As some of you may know, it’s been just over a week since I’ve been back from my trip to Rome! It was my second time going to Italy overall (first time was in Florence). Whilst I don’t profess that I’d necessarily go to Rome again (because there’s so many places to visit for the first time), it is still a destination I’d recommend especially if you’re into the Arts, Culture, History and Food. Visiting Rome was actually on my bucket list but now I can tick it off! ✅ Already, I’m thinking about where I can possibly go next; but most of all, I feel fresh and ready to work hard again! It’s strange, but until you go traveling again and are miles away from your home, you realise how much you needed that break and energy resurge to get you back on track. So in my books, I’d also recommend traveling once or twice a year to freshen up, but to also open your mind because I know I did during this trip. Flight …

My Travel Beauty Essentials Kit | Short-Haul Flight

I spent four days in Rome last week so this presents me the perfect opportunity to show you my absolute travel beauty essentials! I was meant to post this before I went away but I kept changing my mind on certain products so that wouldn’t have been a realistic representation! I finally came to a decision (undoubtedly) and I was more than satisfied with my choices, and how my beauty routine held up throughout the days even though I was away from home.
