This post is part of the ESG: My favourite picture of the month December swap on Swap-Bot. Sorry I skipped November, it was super busy because of the wedding and honeymoon. But don’t worry, I’ll be following up this post with one on my 2017 in review and plans for 2018. That post will be up in a few days.
In the beginning of December, we were still on honeymoon, and were in Venice first. I took this photo inside an absolutely incredible mask shop that we found.
After our time in Venice, we went to Rome, where we saw lots of amazing things. My absolute favourite thing was the Capuchin Monk Crypt. This photo shows one of the many beautiful patterns in the ceiling that are made out of human remains.
We also came across Victorian Monkey, a board game pub in Rome! I just had to try one of their signature potions. We had lots of fun there, playing Exploding Kittens, drinking potions and eating good food. We need places like this in South Africa!
When we came back home, I was very busy. I had a very fun photoshoot with Dark Arts Society. Here’s the sneak peek selfie I took after the shoot.
Lastly, I bought two things I had wanted for a while. I got this Alchemy Gothic necklace, as well as the gorgeous green lipstick from LA Splash.
I don’t have a photo for this memory, but my friend Bree came over and we had a Harry Potter marathon! I always love watching the Harry Potter movies back to back but this was the first time watching them like this with a friend.
For New Years, we didn’t do anything. I played Elder Scrolls Online and my husband played GTA. We decided not to go out so that we could make sure that our animals are okay. Luckily there were hardly any fireworks this time.
I hope you enjoyed hearing about my month! As I mentioned in the beginning, I’m working on a post on my 2017 in review and will be sharing it with you soon!
