The Colosseum

Last summer, I was a bit heartbroken that I did not manage to go to Rome. Of course, I am very grateful that I saw a lot of countries during my last trip to Europe but Rome is a must-see place. That is why when my mother said she was thinking of having a family vacation to Italy, touring the country’s most iconic places, I said: “Count me in!”ย 

Hello,

After two weeks of traveling, I am finally back home. Well, back in my dorm. My Spring Break is over and I am definitely missing Europe already.

I know I have not updated my blog in two weeks but that is because I’ve been traveling nonstop and I kid you not, every night, all I do is shower, do my night routine then pass out on my bed.

In fact, as I am writing this blog post, I still have jet lag from my travel trip. I did not sleep at all from my last night’s flight.

Anyway, is someone in the crowd the one you are looking for? Joke. I miss La La Land. Haha. This is me in front of the iconic Colosseum. How awesome is that?

I was definitely starstrucked when I saw the ancient structure. Before, I just used to see it in magazines and photos. Seeing it in front of me, it was truly magnificent. In fact, I was even a bit intimidated. Haha. How crazy it is that it is still standing?! It is so ancient.

It was really nice too that the weather was finally sunny again. When I landed in Milano, it was so gloomy! Anyway, enjoy the photos and more to come! Yay!

Have A Nice Day, Everyone!

    That lame skirt adds colour to Rome. The gladiators would have certainly stopped in their tracks once upon a time. Imagine if you were teleported ๐Ÿ˜‰

      lame skirt? Haha. I guess. I would be scared to be teleported but it’ll be so cool as heck! Haha. Have a nice day, girl! I’m so jet lag from my flight last night but Europe is so nice! Im back to blogging every day again! XOXO giveaway should be up soon too!

        Ha ha ha. I meant Lamรฉ. I should have put that right. You relax and enjoy the daydreaming.

        • April 2, 2017 / 1:30 pm

          Haha. I understood! No worries! I’m just kidding with you! Haha. College starts tomorrow and I am internally crying already! Haha. Have a nice Sunday, girl! New post would be up tomorrow. Can’t decide whether another travel or fave products or fashion post. Mhmm XOXO

          • April 2, 2017 / 1:34 pm

            Thank heavens. Calling someone’s pretty skirt lame would indeed be quite lame. Have a large cup of coffee for me and something naughty to cope up with your return to classes.

          • April 2, 2017 / 1:35 pm

            OMG! I am actually in starbucks right now drinking coffee as I reply to people’s email and comments! Haha. XOXO

    I love the fact that you look so effortless chic while traveling. I know it’s not easily accomplished.
    I’ve been to Rome only once, and honestly I can’t wait to go back.
    Like you I was amazed as well by Colosseum. Our travel guide actually told us, nature didn’t destroy the structure at all, Vatican did. The marble and the missing stones we see were used to built Vatican.
    Thanks so much for this lovely post!

    AHHH I’m eyes wide open right now. The Colosseum is the one place that I am DYING to go. Like if I could choose one place right now to fly out to, 100% Rome to the Colosseum and then immediately after the Trevi Fountain. Those photos are so stunning theyre so crisp and clear, full of detail. I can only imagine how beautiful it mustve been in person! Thank you so much for sharing!!!! <3
