Now I’ve been absolutely dreading this post since I first started blogging about Florence, since it meant that my Year Abroad had come to an end. It really was the best year of my life and I will never ever forget it. I left Florence on the 2nd August, so I’ve been back in sunny England for almost 3 months and now returned to the wonderful Reading Uni.
Since I’ve finished my work placement and thus have significantly more free time, Millie and I have dedicated July to travel. We recently went to Cinque Terre! I’ve always wanted to go ever since I first arrived in Florence. If you’ve never heard of Cinque Terre, it’s a national park consisting of five small towns on the coast of Liguria. The five towns are; Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. They are beautiful! Continue reading →
I haven’t posted anything in a while about my year abroad!! I’ve been slacking and I only have 3 weeks left!! Cannot believe how quickly the year has gone! So over the next couple days I’m planning to do a couple new posts to get the blog going again!
I finished my work placement at Ermanno Scervino at the end of last month. It was such a great experience and met so many lovely people. Working there made me realise that the fashion industry is not all ‘The Devil Wears Prada’!! I really loved it and it’s given me some inspiration for what I want to do after I graduate.
I’ve been so busy these past few weeks and they’ve just been slipping past me so quickly!! I can’t quite believe that I’ve almost finished my Internship at Ermanno Scervino and that I only have 2 months left here in Florence. Which literally brings a tear to my eye when I think about it!
As you most probably know I am currently doing my ERASMUS year in Florence. I studied at the University for the first half (September to January) and then now working for 4 months (March to June) at a Fashion House – Ermanno Scervino. Continue reading →
Ditta Artigianale is without a doubt one of my favourite cafes in Florence. It has such a cool vibe and everyone I take there always says how nice it is. By day it’s a quirky Italian cafe and by night it’s a Gin lovers bar. It is in the very heart of Florence’s historic quarters, Via dei Neri, 32, between Santa Croce and Piazza della Signora.

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2015! Can’t quite believe it’s 2015 already, 2014 just flew by!!! Since the Christmas period is almost over, I thought I’d reminisce on Florence during my favourite time of the year. Continue reading →
