When in Rome…

I spent 4 days in Rome. 4 days of walking and eating incessantly in this city like no other. Every corner of this place has an amazing monument, sculpture or church to be admired. There are 2000 year old monuments, art by Michelangelo and Raphael and ice cream that will  blow your mind. There are also long ticket lines everywhere, crazy traffic, expensive meals and crowds wherever you go.

I took the city in with full force and walked for miles to see as much as I could. There are a few things you must do when in Rome and a few things you should avoid. Here’s my list:

My 8 favourite Instagram accounts of 2015

Instagram I’m an Instagram addict.

Although I use other forms of social media, Instagram is by far my favourite. In fact it’s the first app I check every morning and the last I check before going to bed. I’m not an Instagram pro and I don’t have a theme (I know it’s become quite trendy to have a theme on Instagram like all whiter photos, etc.) but I love it.

I follow a lot of accounts (when I say a lot, I mean A LOT) for different reasons. All of them inspire me in some way: some of them give me travel inspiration, some of them give me recipe ideas and some of them are just plain pretty. As 2015 has come to an end, I thought it would be good to share with you the ones I visited religiously during 2015. Trust me, some of these will make your day.

So, in no particular order, these were my favourite Instagram accounts of 2015:

Greenberry Cafe, London

greeberrycafe1Yesterday I decided to spend the day in London and try out a cafe I’ve heard very good things about – the Greenberry Cafe, right in the heart of Primrose hill. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed and even though we had to walk for what seemed like an eternity in the rain (it was more like 15 minutes but it seemed like so much more I swear) it was worth it.

First things first, when we got to London the sun was shining and (of course) we couldn’t resist taking some cliche pictures, even though I’ve been to London a billion times. London is always London though and you know how much I love photos.

Snapshots 24.07.15 – It’s been a while

On the bright side I’m going on holidays soon so will have loads of fun new posts for you when I am back so stay tuned.

Here’s a quick review of what’s been up lately:

Why I love Brighton

brightonAbout 4 years ago I moved to Brighton to do my Masters at Sussex University. Fast forward almost two years and I’m still here, working and living by the sea. There have been times when I’ve thought Brighton is too small and I needed to explore somewhere new but the truth is Brighton has a special little place in my heart. I don’t plan on staying here forever but when I leave I’m going to miss it – and this is why:

Awards – Thank you!

awardsI have been nominated to a few Awards in the last few months but have been completely unable to get back to everyone or reply to all the questions. I apologise and I know some of these are well overdue but I don’t think I will be able to get back to everyone individually. Due to that I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to the following blogs for nominating me (without you blogging just wouldn’t be fun!!):

2015 Goals Update

goalsupdate

What a lovely Saturday and what a difference the sunshine makes!! Love waking up to the sound of birds as opposed to rain and love the smell of spring! In February I wrote a list of my goals for 2015 (check it out here) and decided it’s a good time to review them and see if there was any progress at all (scary!). What’s the point of having goals if you don’t actually work on them, right? Time to recap:

Lisbon: If I had to pick 5 things to eat

lisbon3This will be the last of my Lisbon series posts (I apologise if it seems like it’s all I’ve been talking about lately but it’s such a nice city! ^.^ ) and it will feature something Portugal is amazing at: food! It will be much shorter than the other two Lisbon posts but it will give you little ideas of what to order/get if you do visit Lisbon anytime soon. In a nutshell, it’s the list of things I have to get every time I go to Portugal (good thing I don’t go very often!). Enjoy my lovelies!

Lisbon: If I had to pick 5 places

part2In my previous post I made a list of my favourite cafes (if you haven’t seen it, check it out here) and now it’s time to share with you my 5 favourite places. It was 10 times harder than choosing the cafes as Lisbon has so many lovely places (like most cities)! So without further ado, welcome to my second post in my “Top things to do in Lisbon” series (if you are new to my blog, this will be composed of three posts: If I could pick 5 Cafes; If I could pick 5 places and If I could pick 5 things to eat). These are my top places my dears:
