I thought I’d do a little post on my all time favourite fragrances. For me these give the strongest sense of nostalgia, I bought these rare perfumes whilst living in Florence, so every time I give these a little spritz, it takes me right back to my beautiful Tuscan apartment overlooking the Duomo.

Well it’s been a while! It’s been a pretty hectic since I last posted. I am now a graduate of Italian Studies, it’s crazy to think I’ve finished University, it has flown by. It only feels like yesterday that I was a little Fresher finding her way around and running late to lectures with odd Uggs on… Continue reading
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.
So I was looking back on my blog posts and I cannot believe that I haven’t done a post on All’Antico Vinaio!!! It is unarguably the best sandwich shop in the whole of Florence, and I wouldn’t hesitate to say the whole of Italy, perhaps even in the world….get it? It’s ah-mazing.
Il Mercato Centrale is without a doubt one of my favourite places in Florence. The vibe is awesome and the staff are so lovely. It is based on the first floor of the old food market in San Lorenzo. It’s pretty new, with it only being opened in April 2014, which marked the markets 140th Birthday!
I cannot believe that I only have one week left in Florence. It only feels like yesterday that I was moving in and now I’m starting to pack things up! It’s been an amazing year and it’s going to be so hard to say the final farewell. Nevertheless, I’m making the most of my final days here and still exploring this gorgeous city. La Menagere is one of the new top spots in Florence, it is a quirky, contemporary cafe/bar/restaurant in the San Lorenzo area and is attracting quite the crowd!!
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.
