Locals I Love: Clara Soto

  First off, Happy ‘Festa della Repubblica’! It’s an important national holiday in Italy celebrating the birth of the republic and this week I’m absolutely thrilled to share this wonderful interview with a local designer who I have been so eager to share for some time. Clara originally hails from the country of Ecuador in South America but refers to herself more as a ‘child of the world.’ I knew I was going to like this girl  We originally met…

June Events in Florence, Italy

As fast as a light switch, May becomes June. It’s as fast as that really. One day I’m thinking “cool, it’s the middle of May” and soon enough the end of the month creeps up and I’m scrambling to finish all that needs to be finished. But that’s also a good time to remember to not overwork yourself, take a little time and turn the computer off and go for a long walk. This what I love about living in…

Locals I Love: Jennifer Diederich

Sometimes you meet people that you instantly take too, like that perfect first sip of a warm cappuccino. Some people are just meant to be friends. That’s a bit how I feel about Jennifer. Talented designer, extraordinary host (trust me on this!) and an all around awesome person for so many reasons, I just wish I could hang out with her more. She appeared on the American reality show about fashion Project Runway and makes the most beautiful, fun flirty…

What’s On! March Events In Florence, Italy

Well hello there March, you funny thing you! One part winter, one part spring — the only certainly is plenty of rain so get prepared folks. February has been a wonderful month. I was able to catch up on work and spend some time working on blog posts, like this one in one of my favorite neighborhoods, santo spirito, secret museums in Florence, or one on our adventures wine tasting at a nearby Tuscan castle. This past weekend, I was discovering…

Locals I Love: Sasha Wang

Three years, over 50 interviews later, I am still as excited than ever to showcase even more stories and thoughts from those who chose to move abroad, or just stay in Italy. I learn so much from each and every single person I meet, it’s regenerating to read their outlook and get a window into another person’s life. This January, I am more motivated than ever on the blog. This one (wo)man show is a huge effort in my life…

What’s On This January In Florence

Here it is, another year begun, another one lost. 2016 seems to arrive in a plethora of cuddly socks that leave a lint trail and kisses from my (new – aghhh) husband which is still so fun to roll off the toungue. Nico and I have been on the craziest of adventures since November 28th, from the depths of wedding bliss to the jungles of Thailand and back to Texas for holidays with my family. Oh yes, and ringing in…
