My Favorite Eats In Rome, Italy

Hello loves! I’ve been away and not posting any blog posts for two weeks, but I have a good reason. I was away in Rome, Italy for one week! Such a dream come true. For the second week, I was back at home thinking planning new content I want to begin writing. I’ve gotten to the conclusion that I want to begin sharing more personal content. Slowly my number of readers and followers on my blog has been growing. I want you and all my other readers to get to know me better as well. I’m not sure exactly what kind of personal content I will be sharing but, different content will be coming soon! 

Okay back to the first part! I went to Italy and fell in love with every single thing there. I was living my best life and I never wanted to leave. I’ve decided that this week the topic is going to be all about Rome. To start the week, let’s talk about one of the best parts of Italy, the food. 

I tried just about everything and anything. Your girl was in food heaven. I was in Rome for a week but quickly found three favorites that I had to share. So, let’s get into the good stuff.

My favorite restaurant for breakfast: Bar Trevi next to L’ Antico Forno Di Fontana Di Trevi
When in Rome I liked to keep my breakfast simple and, this place was perfect for that. Bar Trevi was not only in an amazing location, but it was amazing for a simple breakfast. I loved having a cappuccino and either a plain croissant or a ham and cheese panini. My sister and I loved to sit outside and enjoy our breakfast slowly while doing some European style people watching. I loved this little location and, getting to eat some delicious food while having the view of the Tervi fountain was a dream.

My favorite restaurant for lunch or dinner: Pietro Al Pantheon
We tired a few places for lunch and dinner, but this place was THE stop. We were lucky that our hotel was only 4 minutes away. Honestly, it was hard to not go eat there every single day. Everything I tried was amazing, but I have so say that the lasagna and the pasta carbonara were the dishes to try. I loved the whole vibe here!! It had a cute little outdoor seating area and, the inside was super small Italy vibes. Another plus is that it’s right next to the pantheon. Like what’s better than that? An amazing view and, there were so many other small cafes that you could go try some killer gelato. If you go here and you do want some gelato, then let me tell you about this amazing place with the best gelato ever that was only 7 minutes away.

My favorite gelato: Giolitti
If you don’t go to Italy and have an unhealthy amount of gelato then you’re doing Italy wrong. I can honestly say that I regret not eating it more than I did. This place was such an amazing find and the gelato was HEAVENLY. Here’s the thing, there are certain signs to pay attention too. That way you can find authentic gelato and not that fake stuff that unfortunately is a popular thing. I saw several places that were full, but so clearly weren’t serving the real thing. To keep things simple, here are three key signs. Pay attention to the banana flavor gelato. Make sure that color isn’t an over the top un-natural color of bright yellow. It should be a beige and a more natural color. The same thing goes for pistachio, it should be an almost brown color. There were several gelato places that the pistachio was a bright green color and, I just knew that wasn’t the thing. Next up see how the gelato looks like in the pan ( is that the right name lol?). The gelato should lay almost flat and leveled with the pan. Some gelato places have the icecream looking fluffy and high up. I learned that real gelato doesn’t hold up like this. OKAY, BACK TO WHY THIS IS THE PLACE. This gelato is so good. I crave it daily and, it kills me that I need to get on an 11hr flight to get this little scoop of heaven. My three favorite flavors were coffee, pistachio, and banana. Oh, I should also mention the magical free additional cream that they put on top of your gelato. I am not a person who likes cream, but this one I could eat a bowl of by its self. I always got the size small which you could get up to two flavors of and, I thought it was a very big amount. They give you a lot per scoop and, the best part was that it was only 3 euros. You have to try this place, you will be in love and crave it forever.

Coffee & banana. Such a good combo!!

My favorite Tiramisu: Two Sizes
This is a little corner cafe that specializes in tiramisu and its the best one we tried there. So creamy, flavorful, and honestly, I have never tried a tiramisu that tasted this good. They have two sizes of tiramisu; small and large. They even have a tiny one that’s in a chocolate cup. The large was only 3.50 euros and more than enough. I had the classic tiramisu flavor, but they also had pistachio and I believe cherry. I’ve heard from a lot of people that all of the flavors are amazing so, its a must-try. They have very limited seating inside, but the outside is beautiful. Take advantage and take your tiramisu to go and enjoy beautiful Italy.

My favorite place for a cup of coffee: La Casa Del Caffè Tazza D’oro
When I found this place, I didn’t realize how big of a deal this little place was. I went in and ordered an espresso in a bar-style cafe. This coffee made me want to become a coffee person. I do like a cup of coffee every once in a while, but I never had a cup of coffee that made me want to drink it every single day. This place did and I made sure to buy a bag of coffee to take home. This place is known to have some of the best coffee in the world. Everything is prepared, roasted, and packed right there. They have a tone of drink options and lots of little pastries to pair up with your coffee. I’m pretty sure that if I lived in Rome, it would be hard to not stop by at least three times a day.

Expresso
Tomato, basil, and mozzarella panini & cappuccino


Rome has so many different options for food and, there was so much more to try. I had a lot of great things on this trip, but these three places were amazing. If you go to Rome make sure to add these must-try places in your to-do list!! Each place had a uniquely special feeling with delicious food to make your heart happy. I can’t wait to have the chance to go back to that beautiful country.

THE BAG That I Couldn’t Stop Wearing In Rome

Hello loves, I am still dealing with some post-Italy sadness. For now, I will be continuing my obsession with Rome here!

For my trip to Rome, I decided to pack three different bags. I ended up using only one the WHOLE trip. I was that obsessed with this bag and the best part was that it was under $10.00.

Fanny packs and styling them to look cute has been a trend recently. I love how people style them but, I didn’t find any that I loved from my usual stores. I found the YOME Fanny Pack on Amazon. The YOME Fanny Pack is simple, roomy and only $8.99. It was perfect for travel and so easy to style. There are several different colors but I decided to go with the black one. The black color made it easier for me to style with my outfits.

There are three different pockets, and I could fit just about everything I needed throughout the day. I loved that it had something that I could clip my wallet too. Since pickpocketing can be common in Rome, this extra add on helped me feel like my things were safer.

You guys I’m not kidding that this bag is super roomy. To give you a better idea, here’s everything that I had in my bag: 

It fitted everything I needed and, I still could fit more things. 

When it came to wearing it, I liked to wear it across my body or on my shoulder, like a shoulder bag. It’s simple and, it goes well with your outfit. Honestly, it looks so cute with all my outfits. The straps are super adjustable, making it easy to wear it how you want.

If you’re going on a trip soon or you’re into the fanny pack trend but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then this baby is so for you! It’s like my new favorite bag and it’s now an ESSENTIAL for my next travel plans.

Three Face Masks That I LOVE

Hello loves, today we’re going to talk about face masks for a little bit. I know, I know. I just posted another post related to skincare but oh well. Like, if you haven’t realized that I am a bit skincare obsessed then you must be new! If welcome to my blog where I obsessed about things that I love, and talk about SPECIFICS. I know what I want and I want it to be done.

Okay to get back on topic, let’s talk about facemasks. I wrote a previous post about my favorite DIY face masks but today I am going to talk about some facemasks I love to buy. I love to put one on as I’m working or when I’m not moving too much. It’s an efficient (my favorite thing) way to pamper your skin while getting work done. Here are three of my favorite face masks that I love to use. 

  • The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA Peeling SolutionTen minutes is all you need for this one to exfoliate your skin and help clear up congested pores. It helps improve the texture of your skin, reduce the appearance of blemishes, and helps with hyperpigmentation. It’s even great for reducing the appearance of fine lines. This baby does it all and it’s a must-have!!
  • Indian Healing Clay Aztec A classic clay mask that works amazing. It’s amazing for detoxing the skin and to fight acne. This clay mask is great for a deep cleaning mask. It’s one of the most popular skincare products on Amazon so, you have probably heard of it. 

I am a big fan of facemasks because its such a simple thing to add. Also, I feel like I’m taking some time to spoil myself, you know? Like having some one-on-one self pamper time. Anything for softer, smoother, and clear skin!

SALT LAMP OBSESSION

I used to think that salt lamps were more for decor, but they’re great for your health. They provided many different health benefits and it’s all completely natural. Who doesn’t love an easy way to get some health benefits.

A Himalayan salt lamp is great for helping cleanse the air around you. They help deodorize and purify air and can even help balance electromagnetic radiation. By having a simple item in your room, you’re helping remove any toxins from the air you’re breathing. It enhances your overall breathing by releasing negative ions. It sounds a bit complex, but negative ions help filter out particles. Fewer particles make it easier for your lungs to breathe. That’s why it is also recommended to have one if you have allergies or asthma. It’s also great for coughing, sneezing, colds, or any other annoying symptoms you might deal with.

Salt lamps are also great for giving you an extra boost of energy. The negative ions from the salt lamp can help increase your energy while promoting blood flow. Also, did you know that negative ions can help reduce stress and anxiety? It even helps you stay focused because of the increased levels of blood flow and oxygen to the brain.

So, if you add a salt lamp into your home or room and you feel like you’re in a better mood, it might be the salt lamp. Salt lamps help boost neurotransmitter serotonin, aka the feeling of happiness. With a more even level of negative and positive ions, a salt lamp can help you sleep better and get rid of irregular sleep patterns. The light from the salt lamp gives a soothing effect and can help people who have insomnia. With reducing levels of stress, better sleep, and anxiety, it can help reduce depression.

Now that I gave you all the details, let’s get into the shopping part. So, there are a few options, but the one I like the most is a wall plug-in option. If you have a small space, this is a perfect option. It’s small and chic so, it blends in and doesn’t take up too much space. I have this one here and it’s perfect for my room. Here the thing, I feel like people often think that you need a large on to work but not necessarily. When I started using this salt lamp, I felt the difference right away! Seriously, the first night I passed out and I sleep so much better now.

Now that you know why I’m so obsessed with it, I feel like you need to get one too. It’s so good for you and something so simple to add to your life. Like we all need better sleep, less stress and more happiness, right?

What’s In My Mini-Fridge

Hello loves, I am back with another skincare post. You guys know how much I love skincare so, I’m always excited to share new tips and tricks. I have been in love with my new mini-fridge. It’s so chic and cute. It just goes with the aesthetic. Other than how cute it looks, it’s an amazing product. Having certain products chilled feels amazing on my skin. I am so obsessed and wanted to share exactly what is currently in my mini-fridge.

I love to leave my facial massage tools in my mini-fridge. Specifically, I would like to leave my gua sha tool and my jade rollers to keep them nice and cool to help depuff. It’s also a great way to wake up your skin. I like to use them both in the morning after I shower. It sculpts everything and helps with making you look less tired. Here’s a little hot tip, if you made the mistake at picking at a blemish (a mistake that I hate to make, but it happens!!), use a cold jade roller over the blemish. The cold will help bring down inflammation and redness. The ideal situation would be to make it seem like it never happened so, this might help with that.

I like to also keep a few skincare products that I use in the morning nice and cold. Some of my favorite skincare products to put in the fridge is my hyaluronic acid serum, my vitamin C serum, Jason vitamin C Effect moisturizer , St Ives collagen moisturizer, and an aloe plus rose water mist. If you use any vitamin c, retinol, or other anti-aging products, keeping them in the fridge will help them last longer. That way you are using a product that’s working at its highest concentration for a longer amount of time.

Have you tried chilling your sheet masks? It’s seriously the best and feels amazing!! I always have one or two sheet masks in the fridge. That way they are cold and ready. I love a simple sheet mask because it leaves you moisturized and glowing. That’s why I love adding it to my mini-fridge because having it chilled helps with depuffing and tighten everything up, as I mentioned before. Here’s another hot tip, use your cold jade roller over the mask to make it extra cold and to increase absorption.

I love the convenience of having a mini-fridge in your bathroom. It’s small so it doesn’t take up too much space. I love anything that’s simple and helps with the lymphatic system like this does. If you are interested in getting a mini-fridge I would recommend the one I have! It works great and isn’t too big, perfect for wherever you keep your skincare products. If you have one let me know what are some of your favorite products to put in yours! Okay, wishing you all glowy skin.

Lounge Wear I’m Loving

I love a whole comfy situation. Like I might have things to do today but, I want to be comfy. So why not find some chic alternatives. I have been really into loungewear that looks good at home and out. I think that neutral colors tend to work best with this idea because it’s easier to pair with some effortlessly chic accessories. I did a bit of online shopping recently and found some great options that I thought I would share. So let’s get right into it. 

Nasty Gal Recycled Tie-ing To Chill Ribbed Set

Such a cute set that you can wear together or separately. I love the light beige color and it’s a great price. Also, I am so into the whole ribbed fabric trend and this goes perfectly with it. 

Slow Down Sweater and Jogger

I’m obsessed with the color! I feel like this set will look amazing on everyone. The single off-shoulder look is so cute, giving that chill vibe. 

Satin Lounge Pants Beige

Nothing is more comfortable than satin, especially after you shave your legs lol. I love these cargo style satin pants. They’re on-trend and so comfy, I love it. 

Out From Under V Neck Hoodie

Okay, this one is perfect if you need to make a quick change to go out. All you have to do is change into a pair of jeans, some cute black boots, and it’s now A LOOK. If its cold, add a cute leather jacket to stay extra warm. A gray hoodie is a staple everyone needs.

Topshop Rib Wide Leg Lounge Pants

I love the wide-leg style these have, I am currently really into that style. The color is amazing too, it will go with basically everything. 

Loungewear Ribbed Jumpsuit

Okay, I am IN LOVE with this jumpsuit. It’s so cute and I love that its a jumpsuit. It’s different from other loungewear that you typically see, that’s why I’m OBSESSED. It’s so cute and a must buy. 

I love the fact that loungewear is getting more and more popular. There are constantly new styles coming out that are chic and effortless. Like who doesn’t love a comfy and cute outfit? 

All the love,

Dry Brushing 101

I love anything I can do to help lymphatic drainage. It helps detoxify your body, fight inflammation, and promotes blood circulation. You can go out and get a lymphatic draining massage, but if you want to do something at home that won’t cost a lot, dry brushing is a great option.

Dry brushing often is used as a great exfoliation option. That’s why I love to add dry brushing for some extra smooth legs before or after shaving. Just make sure to use your favorite moisturizer or oil afterward. Exfoliating will also help unclog pores, reduce the appearance of ingrown hair, and “strawberry” legs. Dry brushing is also supposed to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Like I mentioned before, this is a form of lymphatic drainage which helps reduce inflammation. That’s why after people get a lymphatic draining massage, they look slimmer. Dry brushing also stimulates your nervous system leaving you feeling more energized.

When starting to dry brush, you want to make sure you’re using the right brush and dry brushing at the right time. I love this one that has natural bristles, works amazing. You also want to make sure you dry brush when your skin is completely dry! Having your skin completely dry will help exfoliate your skin better and increases blood circulation. I like to do it before I shower, that way you wash off any remaining dead skin.

Wholesome Beauty Dry Brush With Natural Bristles

Heres the key, you want to make sure all motions are towards your heart. For most of your body, this will be an upwards motion that way you ensure you are pushing all the toxins towards your lymph node. You need to make sure you dry brush your feet and ankles. Usually, people will start at the top of the ankles and up, but starting from your feet will give you that extra boost of energy.

Areas like your chest, stomach, and neck tend to be more sensitive so, you want to go in with a light touch. You want to make sure that when you are dry brushing make sure that it doesn’t hurt! Listen, if dry brushing hurts you or causes bleeding, you might be brushing too harsh or your skin might be too sensitive. If your skin is too sensitive for it, there are plenty of other lymphatic drainage methods that you can do! I will definitely be writing another post to give you some more options.

I have a previous post where I talked about my go-to for smooth soft legs and this is a major step in it. I love how simple it is to add to your daily routine. Try this out and add it to your morning routine. Trust me your skin will feel softer smoother and you will feel energized and a little bit less bloated. I love a simple game changer!

ZARA SALE HAUL

Hello, loves! I have to ask, have any of you taken advantage of the ZARA sale? I have 100% and went slightly overboard. There is a lot of things I am waiting to return (three large boxes, one bag filled with clothes, and accessories to be exact) so, I feel a bit less guilty about it. Heres the thing, I didn’t realize that throughout the sale, they drop the prices in a lot of items. Some items that I bought were $20.00 – $30.00 cheaper than when I originally bought it. I was annoyed at first, but luckily most and returned the original purchase. Anyways, back to the original idea for this post. Let’s do a little haul! The sale is still going on at ZARA, and since they rarely have any sales, I would take advantage! Here are some of the things that I bought and loved.

DENIM JACKET WITH FULL SLEEVES

THICK SOLD ATHLETIC SANDALS

ASYMMETRIC TOP

LOW HEELED HIKING ANKLE BOOTS

QUILTED SHOPPER BAG

FAUX SUEDE HALTER TOP

FAUX LEATHER JACKET 

SNEAKERS WITH ANIMAL PRINT DETAILS

OUTFITS OF THE WEEK

Hello lovelies, how has your week been so far? Mine has been quite exciting because all of my Zara orders have finally been coming in and I am so excited to wear them! You guys, I made a total of 6 different orders, each having multiple items. I’m not sure if I’m going to keep everything, but we will see! If you follow me on Instagram then, you might of see all of my outfit photos that I am always posting. I’m obsessed with everything fashion, it’s my very first love. So, if you’re into all of that stuff make sure to follow me there.

For this blog post, I decided to do a similar thing but keep track of each look of the week. My Instagram tends to follow a theme that I’m currently working on so, it’s not always what I am exactly wearing right at that moment. In this post, I kept track of what I wore all week to share with you all. Let’s get right to it.

Outfits of the week:

Sunday:
Obviously, I am going to keep things simple. Sunday is usually when I spend the majority of the day at home. My day is usually filled with working, writing blog posts, and taking time for face masks. So like I said, I want to keep things simple and comfy so I go to an oversized hoodie and some biker shorts. If I decided to go out, I’ll change into some black leggings because it’s too cold to go out in biker shorts. If something comes up and I need to go out quickly, adding a leather jacket makes it look a bit more put together. Then I’ll just throw on some black biker boots, and I’m done.

Monday:
I had to get ready quickly for something that came up so I went to my basic go-to look. My ripped Mom Jeans, a black t-shirt I tucked under my sport bra for a cropped look, my black oversized leather jacket, black biker boots, and my black Gucci belt with a silver GG buckle to tie the whole look together. It’s a basic, and comfy go-to look that looks cute.

Tuesday:
You know when you have a new outfit, and you just keep wearing it? That’s what is currently happening with this outfit. I have been in love with my beige baggy pants from Zara. Then I add this white top that I have that’s a bit too long. Instead of just tucking it into my jeans, I’ll wear a sports bra and tuck my shirt into the sports bar. That way it gives a cropped top look. To bring in a darker color to the outfit, I’ll wear my black oversized leather jacket. For my shoes, I wore my white vans with black checkers.

Wednesday:
I’m trying to get in the habit of adding more color to my clothes. My closet consists of black, white, and blue. So I’m taking small steps to add more color into my outfit like adding a simple green tank top as I did on Wednesday. Then to get back into my comfort zone I’ll add blue jeans and my black oversized puffer jacket. Finally, I’ll add my white converse to complete the look.

Thursday: I have been loving a complete light toned outfit. Recently I bought this white long puffer coat that I love!!! So I paired it with a long, oversized, beige t shirt and black leggings. I was planning to go ice skating this day so I wanted something comfy!

Friday: I wanted to wear something simple but cute, so I decided to wear my gray straight jeans, nude slightly cropped T-shirt top tucked in. Then, black oversized faux leather jacket and my white Gucci belt.

Saturday:
Saturday I went out to the city and had a fancy dinner so, I had to dress for the part. I have this amazing vintage faux leather coat with a fur trim around the color. Since we were out the whole day I didn’t want my outfit to be overly fancy so, I wore my distressed light blue jeans and a white t-shirt that I tucked into my sports bra.

Okay, that is how the whole week was looking clothes-wise. Like I mentioned before, follow me on Instagram for a deeper look into my fashion side. Let’s chat a bit!!

All the love,

MY FAVORITE TOOLS FOR A DIY FACIAL MASSAGE

Hello, lovelies! I wanted to make a small post about one of my favorite things to add into my daily skincare, a facial massage. It’s so simple to add to your life and easy to do. There are three different tools that I love to use to get the most of my facial massage so, let’s get right into the good stuff.

Let’s quickly talk about the benefits because if you’re like me, you’ll want to know all the details. First off, by massaging your face you can help promote oxygen and blood flow in the skin. Increasing your blood and oxygen flow will help reduce puffiness and give you a slimmer look. A simple facial massage will even create a brighter, more even skin tone. One more thing I love about a facial massage is that it’s a natural “botox” or “facelift”. It promotes collagen production, helping you prevent and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Massaging your skin will also help with your skin absorbing the product you’re using. Giving yourself a facial massage 5-10 minutes a day will help improve your overall skin and its a great thing to do at home for free.

Gua Sha
Okay, so let’s get into my top favorite tool to use for my facial massage; my gua sha tool. I have written a whole post about it before, which you can read about here. It works amazing and its simple to use. There are so many free resources online that you can use to help guide you. I love how effective it is to get rid of any puffiness and sculpt your face. I have attached some great options down below for you to look at. So, one comes with only the gua sha tool and the other one comes with both a gua sha stone and a jade roller. This tool is a must for me and I always bring it with me when I travel. If you want a more detailed look into gua sha check out my old post where I get really into the details.

Silicone Vibrating Facial Cleansing Brush
So these have been very popular recently and I completely get the hype. The vibration from the brush helps stimulate the production of collagen and helps give that extra movement to help with lymphatic drainage to sculpt the face. It’s a great tool to use to cleanse your face but I also love to use it with my moisturizer for a facial massage. There are plenty of price and affordable option that work amazing! I have attached three options for you to find one that goes well with your price range. All links are on the photos below!

SOLO $38.00

Zyllion $26.00

MEBAO $13.00

Jade roller
Everyone has heard of one and most likely you already have one! It’s a great option for something quick but, it doesn’t work quite as well as the first two. I love to leave this one in my mini-fridge and use it in the mornings when it’s cold. The coldness helps reduce any inflammation or redness. It’s great if you have a new breakout. A jade roller is also great for rolling over a sheet mask. It helps with the absorption of the product from the sheet mask. I love leaving a mask in the fridge that way it’s nice and cold when using. Then using a cold jade roller to help your skin feel fresh. I found three great options for you to check out down below. All photos are linked!

eDiva Jade Roller and Gua Sha Set $23.00

Roselyn Boutique $19.00

Lexi White Beauty $9.00

All three of the tools I mentioned above are great but, don’t underestimate the use of your own hands. Giving yourself a facial massage using your hands can also result in some amazing results. You need to start taking a few minutes in your day because the benefits are major. So tonight take some time for your skincare and wake up with glowy skin.

All the love,

Kamila Coellar
