juliet's house in verona and OOTD ( picture overload alert )

my friend funmi and i ( as well as the girl who was meant to be our guide for the day ) went to the heart of Verona to do some sight seeing and just spend a great day . also before coming to Italy we had over indulged in movies  such as eat pray and love   and letters to Juliet and i was so excited to see Juliet's house and write a letter to Juliet and hopefully get a reply by the time i get back to the UK ( if you have watched the movie you will know what I'm on about ) . 

so we went around Verona and took a look at the coliseum ans my friend funmi really wanted to see that . we also had a meal at one of the restaurants . however things are so pricey at the heart of Verona since its somewhat of a tourist attraction . and for some reason everyone spoke some level of English , which really got on our nerves as we really wanted to put our Italian to good use ( even though we can only just about say hi , bey and how much )

 after the meal we went on looking around and this time around we took a look at the stores . to be honest i wasn't interested in looking at any of the stores . just because to me this was meant to be a relaxing holiday where I'm taking a break from everything else I'm used to in England , which also included shopping . however we did have a look around some of the stores we do not have in England , such as sephora and kiko , and i manage to get 2 nail polishes and 2 eye shadows from kiko just to have a try , but now I'm sooo gutted as they are amazing and should had gotten more .

 after the stores we finally got to go to Juliet's house . and it was then that all my dreams were crushed.............. looooooooool not all my dreams . but it was nothing like in the movie . it was such a small space with sooo many people packed inside , whilst in the movie it sort of looked massive with just a few women about . there was no one writing letters or even collecting letters ( the whole writing to Juliet's secretaries was apparently none existent ) instead of people picking up my letters there were little shops everywhere and a so called museum inside where you can pay to go up to the balcony and see Juliet's tomb ( we didn't bother with the dumb museum ) so we just took some pictures with the statue and left . also there were graffiti everywhere my bubbles were bursts .

but on a whole it was such a nice day and i was over the moon as at least i got to do something i always wanted to do even if it turned out it wasn't exactly what i expected . and i got to share this experience with one of my closest friends ( actually shes more of a sister than a friend )

funmi wore : top -dorothy perkings , skirt - zara , sunglasses - H&M , earrings and bracelet - unknown , flip flops - Verona

 skirt - zara , top , sunglasses and flip flop - primark , bag - H&M , necklace ( used as headband ) charity shop , rings ( from L to R ) - topshop, H&M , Elliot Paris
 i hope everyone enjoyed this post , sorry it was such a long post with so many pictures loooool just want to get all these holiday posts out of the way :) if anyone is thinking of going to verona and checking out juliet's hous , i would say go for it looool its still worth a look even if it is nothing like the movie . and if in verona.... well you might as well

  7. i was there two years ago and I'm going back net week for holidays :D
    Haha I did the same to Juliet's boob, i dont know why, but everybody does it, so i guess it's like an unspoken rule to touch her boob when you visit xD
    Lovely pictures, makes me excited for next week!!
    Love Lois xxx


  8. Italy, I'm completely envious. I like the red skirt, you both look great. the juliet situation is a bummer I thought the whole letter thing was real too and the secretaries. oh well, I'm sure other fabulous italian things can compensate for it.


  9. Oh I loved that movie - Letter to Juliet <3
    I hope some day to visit Verona again and write a letter to juliet haha
