TRAVELING THROUGH ITALY FAVORITES

my boyfriend and i have been planning this big trip through italy for many many months now and it’s coming to an end very soon. i wanted to give you 25 of our very favorite things to do, eat, drink and see…along with some tips about traveling through italy. it’s been so memorable and i’m so happy we decided to just go for it!

thank you to my friends who gave me recommendations and i hope this list helps plan your next trip. it can be kinda stressful planning a longer trip (we did 1 month) but it’s so incredible to immerse yourself into a culture.

we started with 5 days in rome…

1. roscioli was one of our top favorite meals in rome. make a reservation at la salumeria (it’s busy!) and order la gricia pasta and the burrata with sun dried cherry tomatoes. the cheese and meat plates are also insanely good.

2. forno campo de’ fiori is an awesome little bakery in a popular square. grab a few slices (wish i could try them all! my favorite was the ham) and a beer and enjoy on the street while people watching. cheap price and amazing taste.

3. meridionale is a cozy little restaurant with eclectic decor and good food. i also really enjoyed walking around that neighborhood. please get the squash pie with melted fontina. so unique!

NOW TRAVEL: ROME >> POSITANO

it’s a little tricky to get to positano but not too bad. we knew that the pricy part of our trip was going to be in the south of italy. there’s so much tourism there and it feels like all the prices just go way up for hotels, food, and transportation. but it’s worth seeing for sure, so you gotta just let that part go. we chose 2 nights in positano and 2 nights in capri and ended up extending capri by two more days. it was definitely the right amount of time for us.

we took a train from rome to naples and then got a private car to drive us to the hotel. our hotel was gonna charge like 150 euros for the drive (around 1.5 hours) but we used this recommended driver that charged us 120 and she was really great. it’s gonna be your most expensive transportation probably. the roads are very windy with extreme cliffs, i am not sure i would recommend driving it yourself. but that’s just me.

you can email info@amalficoastdestination.com and they wrote me back immediately. tell them what time you want to be picked up from the train and they handle it all from there.

30 DAYS NO ALCOHOL RESULTS

daa0735eab0e22728ee9128435ea73c7

so far it’s been three weeks since i’ve had any alcohol. same story for justin. i’ve only done a two week break in the past so i was very interested in trying a whole month. our mexico trip was filled with poolside margaritas, beers with lunch, wine with dinner…you know how it goes on vacation. that always makes me want to come home and take a break. but this time we said we were going to do a solid 30 days without alcohol. not even a sip. here are the results so far…

WEEKEND AT HOME / 69

shelf styling ideas | designlovefest

shelves can be a huge eyesore sometimes. we tend to stuff in books until they’re overflowing, and never actually organize them. i wanted to share some shelf styling ideas so you can store your favorite books and keep your shelf pretty at the same time! here are a few tips. #1: have a color palette for the shelf. i’m kind of obsessed the all-white example below, but you can add in a few colors too, just keep them consistent. tip #2: mix things up for variation and shape. don’t just include books, add in some art, plants, and fun accessories. #3: play around! style a few books horizontally, then a few vertically. fill in some spaces with accessories and spread everything out so it doesn’t clash or fight against one another. happy shelf styling! erika

JOURNAL DAYS

675787f5d89ee6e314fa5192ed1326ef

journaling used to be such a huge part of my life. and i always get nostalgic about my high school journal days when i see photos of people’s sketchbooks and diaries. there is something so interesting about them, right? raw emotions, self expression, confessions, documentation. i found a bunch of photos of them on pinterest this morning and figured i’d share. did you keep a journal, or do you have one now? maybe i’ll get back to it…
