BarkBox {March 2015}

Time for another fun-filled BarkBox! Chelsea gets more and more excited every time her box comes. This month's theme was "Island Paradise".
 First thing in the box was an Etta Says! Buffalo Chew ($3). I love these because they have absolutely no artificial filles, coloring or preservatives. Chelsea loves them too and they keep her entertained for a while.
 Next up is one of the coolest dog treats I have seen. The Yeti Corp Golden Nuggets ($8) are made from Nepali yak and cow milk, salt and lime juice. They just go in the microwave for one minute and you got a tasty biscuit type treat for your pup! Here is a before and after:
 We also got some Etta Says! Toasted Coconut Bitz ($7). These things totally smell like the beach. We've been using them as Chelsea's training treats and she is loving them!
 And for toys we got a Swag Co. Parrot ($9) and a PetProjekt Squeeki Tiki ($8) which are being extremely loved by the pup. She loves them both.
 And, of course, your monthly dose of cuteness:
BarkBox really is awesome! If you would like to sign up for BarkBox, follow my referral link:

Exploring Vomero

One of the things I am absolutely loving about living in Naples is the FFSC "Field Trips". These are organized, low-cost trips around different areas of the city. Tiziana, our guide, is always fun and helpful and these are really great for new comers as well as people who just want to hang out, see something new and learn how to get around Naples. It's also a chance to meet new people, I met wonderful girls on one of these and am now proud to call them friends! This time our field trip was to Vomero Hill. Unfortunately it was raining, and the view would have been so much better in a clear day, but it was still breathtaking.

We took the Alibus from Capodichino to the Port, and from there we walked to the Funicolare station. A short trip in the Funicolare and we were up there! We walked for a little bit until we reached Castel Sant' Elmo. We didn't go in but I am definitely going back sometime soon.
The view from Vomero hill really is amazing.
After taking tons of photos of the view we took a walk back to the main road.
From there, we headed on to Vomero Market. Italian markets are awesome! You can find a lot of cute stuff for cheap, and very fresh fruits and veggies. Vomero Market is open from Monday through Saturday, I think from 7:00AM through 1:00PM but do not quote me on that.
After some shopping (2 Euros scarves FTW!) we headed back to have lunch at a Pub-Style restaurant. Saw cool things along the way.
We ate at Blackwood Pub & Grill. It was very cool! The decor of the place was awesome. The food was good, just OK really but I would go back to give it a second chance based only on how cool the place is.
I'm looking forward to going to Vomero again soon!

Thanks for reading!

Throwback Thursday - Caffe Themselves

{ March 29, 2013}

Caffe Themselves was one of my friend Tracie's favorite places, and I am glad she showed it to me because everything there was absolutely delicious. After wandering around Hapjeong
, we hopped on the subway and headed to the Jogno area to have something to eat.
 We walked for a little bit until we reached Caffe Themselves (I just love the name haha) and ordered. The food there was always good, the drinks are amazing and the desserts are to die for. And they have very quick service too!
 Brunch. Is. The. Best.
 Such amazing noms.
 And of course, my beautiful friend. Isn't she the cutest?
If you're ever in Seoul and want some brunch or a sweet treat, make sure to check out Caffe Themselves! It is awesome.
