Sciascia Caffe 1919

Sciascia Caffe 1919 Via Fabio Massimo 80/A, 00192 Rome, Italy What a lovely little coffee shop! This place was a mere 5 minutes away from our hotel (walking distance) and was pretty easy to find. We liked it so much we came here two days in a row. They also have fresh coffee beans for sale, but sadly – we didn’t buy any. When you first enter, you are faced with a little “waiting/lobby area”. You can sip your coffee there while looking at the coffee beans (and people watch) or go inside the other room where you can order and sit down.  Looks delicious right? Well. It was amazingly good! Better than the other places we visited. The place itself is pretty nice, and the staff are all so friendly! Don’t be fooled, the coffee bar area was pretty crowded! Famous actors I don’t know… though the guy in the bottom Right looks familiar.

A little bit of everything..

  A little bit of everything… After visiting the Colosseum, we went to the Roman Forum and palatine as it was free. Some of the photos didn’t turn out quite as nice, so here are the ones that caught my interest and hopefully you guys will enjoy them as much as I did! Found this little guy just resting… he was so calm!

Internship Advice + My Views

If you’ve been looking around for an internship or you’re stuck in one then here is some advice. This is for people who don’t mind working for experience or those who are trying to make the transition (like me).  1. Do not underestimate yourself. I always underestimate myself, always. I refrain from applying to stores that attract a lot of customers, or boutiques that have really nice designs and expensive pricing because I feel that I will let them down. Just remember, YOU have something that PEOPLE are looking for; your skill, your knowledge, and your willingness to learn. If you’re going to work for free, then you might as well work for free in a high-end  boutique where you will learn plenty of things that you can put on your resume. Never be afraid of getting rejected, apply to as many places as you can. 2. Make sure you know what’s in it for you. I remember just searching around and applying to the first two boutiques I saw, thankfully I got accepted. In interviews, people always …

Blogger Tutorial | Easy Header + Make a Pattern

 I never even thought about doing a post like this until Christina  asked me for a tutorial on my “header & widgets”. This post will be photoshop based, but don’t worry! If you guys don’t have photoshop just simply go to the end and seek out the other tutorials I have compiled for you ; they use Pixlr or Picmonkey. First up, you’re going to need a background. You can grab your background from google, or any other source (make sure you read the terms of use). Here is my favorite place to grab anything I can (from brushes, to graphics, to backgrounds) :  Deviantart. Use it, use it, use it! Your life will change.. for the better. To see some brushes or things I get from there, simply check my Credit page! My Example Background  Now, you need to know your header dimensions. How do you check that? Simply, go to Dashboard > APPEARANCE (That paintbrush tool) > Header. It should list the dimensions. For example: mine is like 1040 Height x 400 Width. Open up your photoshop & your …

Tiffany Blue Accessories

{Outfit Post} Tiffany Blue   I tried to come up with an interesting name for this post… but really couldn’t. So, here’s a quick outfit post. I asked Brandon what color he thought this was since at 2 am it seemed green to me (I know…) but he told me it seemed Tiffany Blue; so Tiffany Blue it is! Planning to wear this on our trip to Knott’s today. I’ll have photos up by the end of the night 🙂  I wouldn’t consider myself an accessories girl since I’m always losing my necklaces, forgetting to wear my sunnies, and fiddle with my fingers too much for rings but as I’m interning for Serene Sky… I might as well try to play around and find accessories that compliment my outfits.  Outfit Details Top: F21 / Sunnies: Secretly.yours (my shop) / Ring: Thrifted / Earrings & Necklace: F21     These earrings are oh so cute… They really go well with the shirt. Close up of the sunnies. I’m including them in my giveaway soon!  P/S: Hope you guys are liking …
