What to Do in June 2018 in Florence: Personal Suggestions For a Great Month

I admit my tardiness in getting this personal list of interesting June events around Florence, but I have a good excuse. Life has gotten in the way, work has doubled and coincidentally the blog getting a bit less love but that won’t last long. However despite the fact that June has bull-dozed its way into existence, I am cool with that. The weather is beautiful, so much better than last year at the same time, we have yet to resume our “two-a-days” (not…

Three Places To Experience Food and Fashion in Florence

In a city as dynamic as Florence, it’s hardly surprising that well-known brands have figured out that food and fashion sells. Of course the old adage was more “sex sells” (still does) but food might just be a dash more popular (and less emotionally draining… well maybe) as I’m starting to see reflected in the city today.

Since I’ve been back, I have been overwhelmed with all of…

Locals I Love: Martina Lončar

This Sunday’s interviewee on the blog is a girl I call Tinka, we met about a year ago, I think? Time passes so quickly my mind can never quite keep up but I am sure it was through the Creative People in Florence meet ups. Her actual name is Martina, a Slovenian native who has found a passion for jewelry design among a fabulous artisan collective workshop in the heart of the Oltrarno; the city’s edgy creative and slowly becoming…

January Events in Florence, Italy: The 2017 Edition

Buon anno nouvo, this phrase has probably left my mouth and hurriedly typed on whatsapp a hundred time in the past few hours and yet I’m still smiling and luckily have less of a hangover than in year’s past. Last night Nico and I decided to depart from our typical elaborate NYE celebrations around the world to just settle in Florence after a week-long trip to France. Last year we rang in 2016 in New York City with good friends, the year…

Your Tuscan Gift Guide Suggested By Locals

Looking for unique gifts that represent Tuscany and all that we love about this region? I am too! Which is why I concocted a somewhat selfish plan of harassing my friends into letting me know their top gift ideas so that my own procrastination doesn’t mean our families won’t get cool presents. Since I was looking for quality not quantity, this year’s lineup of favorites is astonishingly better than ever, quite frankly, these girls have great taste! Don’t forget to have…
