Hey Chicas, Another Travel Therapy post here--whoop! This time I will be sharing pictures of my trip to Rome. Rome was an interesting place and the hustle and the bustle of the city reminded me a lot of my hometown, Lagos. The Roman architecture was everything I thought it'd be. Every single building looked like it had some fascinating history behind it. Asides taking in the beautiful sights of this ancient city, I indulged in some pasta and gelato- yum! One thing I regret about this trip was that I was unable to visit the Sistine Chapel. I will be in Rome for a few hours next month, and I am wondering if it makes sense to dash out of the airport to do the chapel??
Enjoy the pictures!
First night in Roma.
Pasta in the home of pasta
The Colosseum was closed by the time we got there.

Cortile del Belvedere ( and that's the Dome of the St Peter's Basilica on the left)
I was looking to purchase a dark brown shade of lipstick when I came across this lipstick from NYC. On the outside, it looked like the color I wanted, but when I got home and opened the packaging, I realized that I had purchased a burgundy/wine lipstick.
I decided to give the NYC lipstick a try, and to my surprise, I fell in love with it. This lipstick is absolutely perfect for fall. It works well for dark skin, it is extremely moisturizing, and it lasts for a long time. I wore it all of last week, and I can say that I am definitely getting a bang for my buck. (It only cost $1!)
If you are interested, this wine lipstick is by New York Color (NYC) and the shade is called Mahogany-320. If you do try it out, let me know if you like it as much as I do.
I rocked this lace number to a wedding two weeks ago. I absolutely loved the dress, but in retrospect, I should have worn metallic heels and not matched the shoes with the dress. Anyway, here are the pictures. Enjoy....
