Sunday Romance

A romantic tip for a sunny Sunday in Rome:

Rent a boat on the artificial lake in Villa Borghese created in the middle of the park in the late 18th century. The Ionic temple on the island in the lake is build dedicated to Aesculapius, the God of healing.
The park is located north of the Spanish steps, and its main entrances are at Piazza del popolo or at the end of Via veneto. You can also rent a bike to explore the 80 hectare/148 acres large park.
But what's more romantic than a boat ride on a Sunday?

In the summer it looks like this...


Enjoy your Sunday!

Rainy Rome

So the snow is gone...then came spring for just a moment, then it started to rain again!
I actually like rain, maybe because it doesn't rain as often here...? But I always feel sleepy and fatigued when it rains in Rome, and it often gives me a headache as well, maybe because of the high humidity, or air pressure?

Anyways I bought this new see-through umbrella at
brandy & melville which says... I <3 RAIN!
LOVE it :) when I walk around people notice it, and smile:)
Always funny to hear Italian's pronounce AI LÅWE RRRAAAIIINE;)

San Valentino


OK, so here goes...
My tips for Valentine's - Boyfriend or not;)

Jewelery - Swarowski
Lingerie - Tezenis
Heart shaped Chocolates - Mo's Gelaterie

Ecco i miei consigli per San Valentino, Fidanzati o no;)

Goielli non possono mancare in questa lista, nelle prime foto si vede le vetrine di Swarowski
Poi se prorio non vi va di spendere tanto perché non comprare un reggiseno & slip coordinati con i cuoricini, da Tezenis. Un bel regalo per entrambi (anche da autoregalarsi da single, perche noi valiamo;) Che ne dite di cioccolatini a forma di cuori o lucchetti?

Still Snow in Rome

So it started snowing...again


I snapped these pics while leaving school this evening... Luckily I got home safe with the bus. I didn't have to walk this time, hurrah! Now I'm relaxing at home with a cup of tea...enjoying the silence and view from my window. Hope you had a great start on your week-end!


ita// Ha cominciato a nevicare di nuovo... Ho scattato queste foto quando sono uscita dall'accademia stasera, fortunatamente sono risuscita ad tornare a casa col autobus. Ed ora sto godendo il silenzio a casa con una tazza di té. Vi auguro una buona fine settimana d'ovunque vi troviate!

Snow falls in Rome

So in contrast to yesterdays spring post, this morning Rome woke up to total snow chaos! I had an appointment near the Vatican so I waited for the tram.....which never arrived so I jumped in a taxi and listened to stories of past snowfalls in Rome. Today it's 26 years since the the last great snow, the year I was born! The last substantial snowfalls in Rome were in 1985 and 1986, though there have been other cases of lighter snow since then. No Rome is definitely not used to snow, but being from Norway I can't help but laugh! I had breakfast at Castroni, and listened to more stories from the Batista's while sipping a cappuccino ... After a little shopping I took the tram back home, which took me forever...! A smart car blocked the way, and I had to get off and walk through the park, Villa Borghese... luckily(!) I had my high heels on...and a miniskirt! But it ended up being really nice seeing the trees covered with snow and children playing in the snow...

ita// In contrasto del post di ieri, stamattina Roma si svegliò ricoperta di neve...Essendo dalla Norvegia e quindi abituata alla neve, non posso fare altro che ridere dell'caos totale:) Ho aspettato il tram, ma siccome non arrivava, alle fine ho dovuto prendere un taxi ascoltando storie delle nevicate passate a Roma. Arrivata a Cola di Renzio dove avevo un appuntamento, ho fatto colazione da Castroni e d'avanti ad un cappuccio e cornetto ho ascoltato le stesse storie di prima... Dopo un po di shopping, ho preso il tram per tornare a casa, ma si è fermata perché un smartcar bloccava la strada, quindi ho dovuto attraversare Villa Borghese per arrivare a casa... per fortuna avevo i tacchi alti (e una minigonna...non dico altro!) Ma alla fine è stata una bellissima passeggiata nella villa bianca e incantata con i bambini che giocavano nella neve...

Brandy & Melville

I <3 this store! U might think that this is an american brand, but Brandy Melville was started over thirty years ago in Rome, Italy, and has grown to over 50 stores in Europe. Brandy stores are currently in Los Angeles, Rome, London, Milan, Berlin, Malibu, Firenze. In Rome u can visit their store in Via Cola di Rienzo, a really nice shopping street by the Vatican, not quite as caotic as Via del Corso and Via Nazionale (the other two major shopping streets in Rome) The store is really nice and big, with pictures of celebrities and movie stars on the walls, worth a visit.

Made in Italy with Love!
