Currently one of DC’s hottest new restaurants opened by Giuliana and Bill Rancic. I had the privilege to dine at RPM Italian DC!!

The restaurant has a modern eclectic decor which I totally fell in love with. In this recent trend of hipster style restaurants in DC, it is an extremely refreshing change to a fine dinning restaurant as RPM Italian DC. Their attention to detail, service, ambiance, and delicious Italian food really brings this restaurant together and in my list of Top 10 restaurants in DC.

Some of my favorites at RPM Italian are the refreshing selection of salads they have; Tuscan Kale and Spinach perfectly paired with a lemon based salad dressing that works superbly well with the strong Kale flavor. Another favorite of mine is Giuliana’s Italian Salad, perfectly paired vegetables and pepperoni with unique Italian dressing.

My favorite entree was the very classic and simple Mama DePandi’s Pomodora, a simple sauce with delicious flavors, totally in love with it. I think making simple dishes with lasting taste and flavors in my books gets the highest points!!

Finishing it off with a wide variety of desserts, I ordered the Chocolate Torta, really yummy Caramelia Ganache topped with Candied Orange, the Chocolate just melts when you bite into it and the candied orange compliments the Chocolate Ganache. And a very sweet surprise by RPM Italian DC was their very exclusive Italian Bomboloni desssert, warm powered sugar and cinnamon pastries, absolutely speechless about how good they were, just when I thought I was really filled with an awesome 4 – course meal, I couldn’t help myself from eating when I tried these delicious pastries!!

I highly recommend checking out RPM Italian DC if you live in the Washington, DC metro area or are visiting this gorgeous city!!

THANK YOU RPM ITALIAN DC FOR HOSTING!!

Hello Everyone,

It’s been two weeks since I posted, extremely sorry about that currently working on balancing my full time work and my blog with the pregnancy.

Pregnancy update: It’s been two weeks sleep has been an issue, being a back sleeper and the recommended position for sleep during pregnancy is to sleep on your left side, which I am currently struggling with. This causes me to be switch between back and side throughout the night resulting in no sleep at night. I finally found a solution where you are allowed to sleep on the back if you are in an inclined position as if you are sleeping on a recliner sofa, I place the pillows accordingly which result in proper blood flow to the baby during the sleep hours.

Mom’s out there if you have any suggestions in regards to the above would love to get everyone’s input and experience.

Moving onto my outfit post for the day, I am still enjoying the flowing dresses, being hot and humid, I feel the most comfortable in these dresses. I am also moving into more fitted options as there are so many cute options out there to give my wardrobe and the audience a variety of options for maternity wear.

Love this easily wearable and extremely stylish dress from the ASOS WHITE collection which I am totally obsessed with!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the last bit of warm weather before we move onto to cooler temperatures. Have a great weekend everyone.

Back after a short break, hope you all have been doing well and enjoying the summer!! I have been trying my best to maintain a healthy balance with my full time job and catch up on my blog work and emails for it.

I am so happy I am back today posting one of my favorite dresses this summer, such a simple cut but the satin frill detail at the bottom really adds a lot of character to this simple T-shirt dress. I am in love with it.

An update on my pregnancy, just got done with my 24 week check up. My eating habits are still phase based where I like to eat the same foods like four days in a row at times, not sure if that’s good or bad, my mom gets bored making the same food for me, she is amazed that I keep eating the same thing 4 days in a row, lol. This week has been Italian food so lots of pasta, hehe.

Have a great week everyone!! Hope you like this post!!
