Rome is a city of history, culture, architecture and amazing food. In other words, it's my kind of city. Travelling to new places is always exciting, especially those with so much to offer that everyday is guaranteed to be different. But it can be hard to know what to do in a new place, let alone a different country. After my recent trip to Rome I thought about all I had learned and so I decided it was only fair to share my knowledge with you all, so that anyone who does visit Rome in the future can feel comfortable knowing they have an understanding of the city and what to expect before they jet off.
To me self love is essentially caring about your own well being and feeling happy about yourself in general. As Valentine's Day is this hugely marketed time where love for other people is a key focus, I thought why not take the opportunity to spend the day celebrating ourselves rather than other people. With everyday life for a lot of us being about caring for others such as; children, families, friends and partners etc. Taking one day out of the year to be selfish and show yourself some self love really isn't a bad thing. In my opinion, it's the furthest thing from bad.
Like everyone else, for me January is a time where you have no money because Christmas has cleaned you out and payday seems so far away. So it's unusual for me to buy anything for myself within this time. I mean, after Christmas presents, there shouldn't be anything else I want right? But this year I surprised everyone by treating myself to a few things, so here are my January buys.
So, tomorrow is the day I go back to my favourite city in the world, Rome. I had such an amazing time when I last went two years ago that I couldn't resist going again. From the ancient ruins scattered about the city to the stunning artwork and architecture, Rome is full of breathtaking culture and beauty.
