Two Days in Naples

I’ve been living in Rome for three months now, and because there is so much to see in the eternal city I hadn’t taken the time to book myself a weekend away to another Italian city. Therefore I decided to go on a trip to Naples with a friend of mine who had not visited the city yet. We literally did it last minute: we booked a room two days before the departure and bought train tickets the day before we left. And because it is southern Italy, we didn’t even spend a lot of money (a return ticket from Rome on the fastest train cost us 35€). Obviously although we hadn’t planned anything or spent any time looking for what to do there, we were incredibly excited to find out what Naples had to offer. It turned out we got plenty of information on where to go to enjoy delicious Neapolitan food thanks to acquaintances of ours on our way…

La vie en Rouje

As you’ve probably noticed on my Instagram or my previous post on influencers (here), I’ve been smitten by Jeanne Damas for more than a year now. Her fashion sense and lifestyle in Paris have became an obvious stream of inspiration to me. There is just something about them - maybe the fact than she seems able to recreate a Paris from the 70s than doesn’t exist anymore, enhancing the idea of a perfect city exuding la joie de vivre à la française, wine and trips to Bretagne included - I can’t help but feeling drawn to what she wants to share through Rouje, the brand she launched not so long ago. Ah yes. Her perfectly-tousled bed hair and insouciant sophistication.

So when a friend of mine let me know there was a collaboration project going on between her and My Little Box (officially confirmed on her Instagram story) I didn’t think about it twice, also because I had already experienced two boxes I was happy about (you can read about what I thought of them and learn more about the concept of the boxes here and here). I ordered the September special edition as a flash. As September is also my birthday month, the box came as a gift to myself and fortunately I was very satisfied with the content of it.

5 Instagram Influencers You Should Know

Instagram has for long been my favourite social media. I can't hide the fact that I am fond of esthetics and photography so Instagram is both the best place to express myself and a great one to find inspiration. Talking about inspiration, I have noticed that I keep coming back to my favourite accounts whenever I want to get inspired or simply to put myself in the mood to shoot nice pictures. People and bloggers I follow don't necessarily have the same style however I find that this diversity makes this social media more interesting ; so here are my favourite influencers for you to indulge in!

Little Ordinary Moments of Happiness

Last November I walked into a Roman library to purchase a book I could improve my Italian with. It had to be relatively short, not too complicated to understand and of course I had to be captivated from what I read on the back cover. He recommended Momenti di Trascurabile Felicità by Francesco Piccolo, and got me convinced. As soon as I perused the first words along its pages I became completely smitten; I knew it was the kind of book you wish you’d never finish because it is this good

The Ordinary Review: My Essential CHANEL Poudre Universelle Compacte

I remember wondering at first what luxury beauty products were the worthiest to buy, and came to mind foundation, lipstick and possibly mascara. So when I splurged on CHANEL's Poudre Universelle Compacte I wasn't entirely sure of the difference using this one would make compared to my former Rimmel's Stay Matte compact powder. It took me a bit of time to start using it as I generally don't apply a lot on my face, but when I started living in Rome in summer and needed to stave off the shine, I quickly realised how high-quality this product was and it all became clear that I could never live without it again. This CHANEL powder is definitely worth having its own spotlight on the blog!

Food Specialities to Try in Rome

Alberto Sordi in An American in Rome (1954)

Italian cuisine is known in the whole world as one of the most popular, tastiest and simplest assortment of food - everywhere you go you will step upon an Italian restaurant serving pasta and pizza. It's been my favourite for as long as I can remember. However before moving to Italy, I had scarcely any idea of the regional richness of its gastronomy. Now that I live in Rome I've had the time, along with a few friends, to catch up on culinary wonders and swore I'll always pay attention to regional specialties to get the best out of Italian trips. Indeed it is quite simple to understand that the best Italian food one can ever try is in Italy, provided that you know what to eat depending on the city you're visiting. If for example Italian gastronomy is not all about pasta hundreds of recipes exist, so an Italian person who knows their own cuisine will not pick the same pasta dish on the menu when sitting at a restaurant in Rome, Naples or Florence.
