Today at a local berry farm it was the first day of strawberry picking season! I went with my friend Abby to the farm to pick a bucket full of strawberries! It only cost $12 (almost $2-$2.40 a pound) for a bucket filled with 5-6 pounds of strawberries! I had seen on Facebook that today was the first day and knew I had to go!
When we got back from the berry farm we had so many red (on the inside too, normally they are almost white when bought at the store) juicy flavorful strawberries we had no idea what to do with! We decided to make strawberry muffins, such a good decision!
If you have the chance to go to a berry farm definitely go! The strawberries taste so much better than the ones you would get from the store!!
Whenever I fell like I need a pick me up or I want to treat myself my favorite thing to do is pamper myself. This Valentine’s Day I will be celebrating by treating myself. Unlike me, if you are in a relationship this could be a great way to treat and prep yourself for your date. The first and most important step is to stop by your local lush or homemade soap shop. I stopped into lush and grabbed two of my favorites! A bath bomb, which is essential, also a face mask. I picked up the blackberry bath bomb, the bergamot oils that the bath bomb is infused with is meant to lift you up when you are feeling down or upset. I also picked up The Sacred Truth face mask, this mask is a mask that is suppose to give you a glowing radiant look right after the first use. Once you get home and draw yourself a warm bath drop a bath bomb into the water. I like to also include my favorite bath soap into the tub to give the bath some large bubbles. Before getting into the bath I like to put on my face mask and set up a cozy environment to relax in. I like to light a candle, my favorite is mahogany teakwood. I either grab a book or watch Netflix on my laptop to help clear my mind of anything I had been thinking of. Before getting to the bath I like to make sure to get a drink to stay hydrated. This Valentine’s Day I will be splurging on a Venti Strawberry Acai refresher made with coconut milk instead of water. Then I will make sure to have a little snack such as, Dove milk chocolate hearts. After removing my face mask I love to drench my face in the Mario Bedescu rose water spray. After I finish relaxing in the tub I wrap myself into a fleece robe. Than I make sure to use a hydrating moisturizer to moisturizer my body. You can find cute or sexy, affordable robes on Adore Me. Not only can you find a cute robe to relax in you can also find something for Valentine’s Day to impress that special someone. If you’re like me and have nobody to impress you can always treat yourself to something that will make you feel good. Just because you don’t have someone else to impress doesn’t mean you can’t impress yourself!! Who doesn’t love singing in their underwear while nobody is watching??
After a night of pampering myself my mind is refreshed and clear. Nothing is more relaxing than having a night to yourself in a calming, cozy environment. I have time to focus on all of the things I want to accomplish and have time to create a plan. Focusing on yourself is an important thing to do and a good trait to have. You cannot get caught up in thinking of others and not having time to think of yourself but yet you also cannot just think of yourself. This Valentine’s Day don’t just give love to others, remember to have time to love your body and mind as well.
Starting out our day we got off the boat and headed straight to the train station. The train took us into the heart of Rome. The first stop we took was to see the Vatican. It was one of the most interesting buildings I have ever been in. With handpainted walls and ceilings that are centuries old. Although for having a limited time in Rome it took up the majority of our time. We spent a solid 2 hours inside, with no air conditioning in the heat of the summer.
After visiting the Vatican we headed over to a huge disappointment. We went to see the gorgeous Trevi Fountain. Unfortunately it was under construction. The whole fountain was drained and covered.
We proceed to find a spot to eat lunch. For the first time I had authentic Italian food!
After lunch we decided to explore the city! We walked to the streets and we visited the spanish steps! I am bummed because we didn’t reach the colosseum which was probably something I was most excited for. Although I did take some awesome pictures whilst enjoying the perfect streets of Rome.
We then made it full circle back to the train station and got on the train for our hour journey back to the boat.
