Locals I Love – Lisa Gucciarelli

This week I plan on interviewing Lisa Gucciarelli an Italian entrepreneur whose favorite drink is apple juice. I met Lisa through one of my day jobs at Nana Bianca  a startup incubator in the center of Florence whose goal it is to help and encourage young Italian businesses (especially artisans) realize their potential — needless to say it’s pretty badass. Lisa’s startup happens to be one that I personally adore – Buru Buru! An e-commerce store where you can find quality products…

5 questions expats in Italy hate being asked

Without trying to be like a teenage emo kid listening to a spotify indie music playlist, I thought I would write a more personal post for a change. When I started this little baby of a blog of mine, I was very unsure about how much personal info I wanted to share. I thought about keeping it strictly events/news and the like but everyone once in a while I like sharing a bit more since after all there are so…

Locals I love – Kate Hash

This next ‘local I love’ happens to be a  fellow blogger/web consultant extraordinaire living with her husband and adorable baby girl {and my god-daughter!} in Florence. We met when she needed some help getting her dual citizenship to stay in Italy and needless to say a friendship was born. I have spent many a day with them having lunch/sipping wine/playing with baby. I have to admit they make living in Italy look easy when it really isn’t — all by…

Why you should visit Boston

Sweet Boston, you were good to me in every possible way. Well to be frank, I owe everything to my friend Erin and the beautiful setting of New England itself. I already touched on my local food favorites in this town but now the city itself is the center of my attention. The best way I can describe this city is through photography. Luckily both me and my friend are both amateur paparazzi and truth be told I probably took too many photos…

Locals I Love – Katie O’Brian

I apologize for the lack of posts lately but if you happen to be a fan of my blog’s facebook page – you probably know that I am currently in America until the end of May visiting family. So far so good, I have visited Boston for the first time and am all over the great state of Texas before heading to Los Angeles later this week. Insanity but hey, it’s been over a year and a half since I…

Locals I love – Meet Megan DeAngelo

Back again for another chat with a local that I love – a very dear friend of mine, Megan! I met her a few years ago and was very thankful I did since we both had very similar life situations. She makes living and working in Florence, Italy look easy when it is anything but, and I have always held a really high respect for her refreshingly honest East-Coast attitude and fun personality. Plus she also happens to make one of the best fried eggplant and…
