For the past couple of days I've been thinking about what my next blog post can be, and in complete and total honesty, I've had a bit of trouble thinking up something new and exciting for you all. So I've taken it upon myself this week, to give you a little insight into my life and use this post as a bit of a diary of the last couple of days. I know, I know, I am not a photographer by ANY means. But it's quite nice to have a few original pictures, and as the greatest girl band in the world once said, sometimes you need to 'Spice up your life' (or blog). 

This week I had a sudden motivation to up my healthy living lifestyle. Generally I don't eat too badly anyway, and despite living in Italy for over a month I've only had two pizza's, which is actually less than back home as I used to work at a pizza restaurant. So on Tuesday, I took to my local supermarket with Albina, and we went fruit shopping. Because I decided I wanted to turn into a smoothie human. A human who makes lots of smoothies... as opposed to a human who wants to be inside a blender. Every morning, I've been drinking a mixed berry smoothie, after lunch I have a mixed fruit and veg one, and for dinner I generally have a soup or salad of some kind.

I've also been shopping. Again. This is a problem for me as I don't technically have that much money to spend, I just cannot help myself. The sun was shining, I was wearing really effortless clothes and surrounded by a lot of beautiful people, and I just turned to my friend and said 'I need to go shopping. Right now.' I emerged from Via Cavour an hour later with a whole new outfit, a new lipstick and a new nail varnish. I have 99 problems and all of them are money related. 

New lipstick, new jumper and scarf, all my new shoes, and my newest Essie nail varnish in Mochacino

I know, I was just talking about how I've changed my lifestyle and want to eat healthily and lead the healthy life, but on Thursday night, my friend Alexandria messaged me asking if I wanted to get pizza and gelato. There's something you should know about me. Gelato is genuinely my favorite thing in the world, and after a month of being here and not having had any, I did of course, say yes. How could I not? I justified this with the fact I worked out for an hour today. A whole hour. Something which is a scarce occasion and should be celebrated... by eating the calories I burnt off. So myself and Alexandria embarked on the nicest Pizzeria in the city, and followed it up with a delicious frozen creamy delight. Despite my 'hard' work this morning, I have absolutely no regrets. 

So yes, this has been my 48hours or so in pictures and, to be fair, a lot of writing. I promise next time I will come back bigger and better than ever before. But right now I am not particularly feeling top of my game for various reasons, so I thought at least this is better than nothing. It also proves to my family and friends back home in England that I'm not actually sat at my laptop 24/7 watching One Tree Hill and scrolling monotonously through various timelines and news feeds. That sort of activity is only reserved for night time. 

I hope all of you are having a good week (it feels very weird I can actually address people now that so many are reading this). I'd also like to say how I looked at my viewing figures and where people are from, and the 4 of you who are from Trinidad and Tobago, that is truly amazing and made me squeal a little bit inside my tiny Italian flat. 

Ciao for now! x
