the carolove Spring Must Have Fashion Items



Denim is back and we couldn’t be happier! Not only is it fashionable, it’s so easy to wear. A pair of jeans, a denim shirt and a choker is the casual look of choice for 2017. With celebrities like Khloe Kardashian releasing their own denim brands, our love for denim couldn’t be hotter right now. Take a look at online boutiques for more ideas.

Slogan T-Shirts

Whatever your life’s mantra, there’s a t-shirt to go with it. It’s the carefree way of showing off your personality via clothing. You’ll come across slogans such as YOLO, Give A Damn and I Am Limited Edition. The great thing about these t-shirts is that you can dress them up or dress them down. Tie them at the waist and pair them with a skirt and heels for a night out or slip on your favorite jeans and flip flops for a casual lunch date.

Skirt Suits

Ladies are taking over when it comes to the work place. We can do everything! If you’re good at your job and you know it, show it with a professional looking skirt suit. Not only are they easy to wear with a pair of low heels, there’s something about a skirt suit that gives you more confidence. When you look good and feel good, you can take the world by storm.

Active Wear

There would have been a time when going for lunch in your active wear would have been frowned upon. These days women are putting their active wear on for anything and everything, and completely avoiding the gym. It’s become part of fashion and you’ll probably find some items that look like active wear but are actually meant for everyday activities.


It’s everywhere. It’s on our bodies, on our sofas, in our rugs. A smart tartan jacket will never do you wrong. The fabric is so versatile that you could wear it to an interview, as part of a wedding outfit or you may even see it on bikini’s on the beach.

Wide Leg Trousers

Another item you can dress up or dress down, wide leg trousers are another must have for your wardrobe. They’re great for wearing to work or going on a date and making an impression. Of course, they’re also ideal for wearing with a sweater and curling up on the sofa for a night in.


It’s all about the bigger, the better this year. Go for big belts and big sunglasses. You may also want to invest in some costume jewellery for when a big event comes along. Happy shopping!

Travel bug: Italy Fri, 28 Apr 2017 15:14:53 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Europe is a wonderful continent that boasts a plethora of different countries and cultures. However, Italy is a unique and beautiful country that offers diversity like no other. So if you’re going to pick just one place for your next trip, this is a fantastic option.

Whether backpacking on your own, with friends or as a couple doesn’t matter. Italy’s good transport links can allow you to see the best of what it has to offer without the need for a pre-booked package. Better still, we’ve put together a 7-stop itinerary that’s perfect for an extended month break. Or if your stay is a little shorter cut some out on the way.

San Angelo Bridge and Saint Peters basilica

Rome (And The Vatican)

No trip to Italy is complete without visiting the capital. Not only is it one of the most beautiful places on Italian soil, but it’s also one of the most historic places on earth. Getting lost among the monuments, galleries, and other cultural elements is easily done. When the weather is nice, you simply wouldn’t want to be anywhere else on earth.

Whether you’re religious or not, heading to the Vatican is another essential element. It’s the smallest state on earth and is one of the most iconic venues too. Being so close to the Sistine Chapel without seeing Michelangelo’s masterpiece would be a missed opportunity.

Piazza Cordusio


Heading north to one of the fashion capitals of the world, Milan is another popular destination for visitors. As well as the plethora of great shops and cafes, the city boasts one of Italy’s great sporting rivalries between Inter and AC. Even if you’re not a sports fan, a tour of the San Siro stadium will blow your mind. Moreover, it saves you the need for visiting Turin, which has nothing to offer aside from Juventus and Torino.

It’s probably not a place to spend any longer than three or four days. Nonetheless, it’s well worth adding to the itinerary. Of course, if you’re planning to do huge amounts of shopping, you may want to reverse this cycle so that this step comes last. Another good thing about this idea is the accessible international flights.



Travel is all about gaining new experiences, and Venice is a unique destination that carries a charm like no other place on earth. Therefore, heading east to the Veneto region is well advised. The small islands, linked by canals and bridges, provide something different to anywhere else you’ve ever been. Meanwhile, taking a gondola ride is one of those bucket list items that we’ve all visioned at least once in our lives.

Venice also boasts plenty of art and culture while the luxurious hotels create the perfect vibe for romantic couples. In addition to those wonderful experiences, you’ll be sure to get some incredible photos to remember those moments too. What more could you ever ask for?


A lot of travelers would choose Bologna as their next stop off. However, Modena would be our choice for stop number four, and the main reason for this is food and drink. Every perfect vacation should offer the chance to delight your tastebuds. A balsamic vinegar tour is the perfect way to do just that in style. Moreover, you can even buy some items to bring the taste of Italy back home.

Modena has plenty more to offer its visitors too. The Ferrari museum can be coupled with a driving experience day. Given the beauty of the surrounding areas, as well as the sheer adrenaline of driving a supercar, it’s another moment that you’ll never forget.

Republic of San Marino

Rimini (And San Marino)

The opportunity to tick another country off of the bucket list is one that every traveler should take. When traveling through northern Italy, a day trip to the microstate of San Marino is the ideal option. However, the tiny nation only covers 60 km2, so a few hours in Serravalle should suffice. Therefore, doubling it up with Rimini is advised.

Rimini itself isn’t a massive place either. But a few days on the beach is the perfect way to break up your trip, especially if you are away for a long time. Meanwhile, it does have a few notable bars for nightlife too. Essentially, though, using this as a pit-stop and a chance to see another country is the ideal solution.

Bari, Italy


The seven-hour train ride to Bari may feel daunting, but the scenic route is truly incredible. Just remember to take snacks on board with you, and it will soon fly by. Once you arrive in Bari, you’ll be able to embrace biking tours, beaches, and museums galore. It’s additionally home to a number of noteworthy architecture too.

There are plenty of other things to do, whether it’s visiting planetariums or eating at wonderful restaurants. If you have a few days to kill, you could additionally take the ferry across the Adriatic Sea into Albania too. However, that one is an optional extra.

Naples, Italy


Naples is an industrial town that often gets a bad reputation. In truth, though, it’s a great place to visit en route back to Rome. Moreover, it gives you a chance to take a day trip to historical Pompeii too. Even if you don’t take that trip, Naples is a location bursting with cultural importance.

Whether it’s sport, music, or the arts, you’ll never be bored. However, the one attraction that nobody should miss is underground Naples. The labyrinth of tunnels and cavities creates a city underneath the ground. It’s a unique experience that no visitor ever forgets, which is why it’s a guaranteed addition for the itinerary.

After finishing Naples, you can head back up to Rome to finish your trip with a few more days in the capital before heading home. Alternatively, carry on north to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa before heading back to Rome. Either way, that Italian adventure will give you a chance to see some of the best that the whole of Europe has to offer. Enjoy.

Wedding Shopping – Together! Wed, 26 Apr 2017 18:28:26 +0000 Continue reading ]]> If you’re getting married soon, you might be full of excitement about all the wedding shopping you’ve got to do. Have you worked out your budget yet? Even if you’re following tradition and letting your Dad pay for it, it’s a good idea to discuss the bottom figure with your husband-to-be. After all, this is his wedding too, so you’re buying for two (plus guests!)

One thing you’re probably not going to do together is shop for your wedding dress. However, there are no traditions preventing you from shopping for all the other outfits as a couple. This could be quite helpful for you as you’ll be able to gauge what styles he likes. This might be good for figuring out which bridal outfit you should pick too!

Personalized Wedding Ring Box

One of the first things you’re likely to pick out is the rings. It’s often a good idea to pop into your local mall and check out the jewelry stores. You can also find more men’s wedding bands here: might offer some different styles or ideas. You don’t have to pick matching rings if you both have differing tastes. Don’t forget to have them engraved with messages of love for each other. Order this early as it can take a little while to complete.

Whether your groom is into flowers or not, he’ll have a good idea which flowers he likes. This is especially important when you’re picking the buttonholes and table decorations. He might have a better idea which flowers his mother might like for her outfit as well. If he’s not really into flowers, ask him what kind of decorations he might prefer. Remember, you have a whole venue to prepare, so his help is very much needed!

Do you have any ideas in mind for your arrival at the ceremony? You might want to choose the car yourself, but if you’re both going to ride in it on the way back, then your groom’s input could be a good idea. Of course, if the ideas are very different, you might have to compromise! Perhaps you could order two cars? This would depend on your budget, but it’s a good way for you both to get what you want.

Would you be comfortable with letting him make big purchase decisions for the wedding? Many brides enjoy taking on all the wedding planning themselves. But if you’re uncomfortable with the idea of someone else taking the reins, maybe he is too. Sharing the decision-making could help you both get exactly what you want for your big day. This is especially true when it comes to the cake. Eating a slice together is a big part of the wedding celebration. Make sure it’s one you can both enjoy!
Stress at this time is very common, and it can even lead to the odd spat with your partner. If you’re both working toward the common goal of wedding planning, then you’ll both know when things are getting a little tough. Teamwork here is, after all, great practice for married life!

Streamline Your Wardrobe Wed, 26 Apr 2017 01:35:02 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Do you ever find yourself rummaging through endless piles of clothes trying to find something to wear? Every time you open the closet, it’s bursting at the seams, but most of it is old stuff that you never wear anymore. Some of the pieces might not have been worn at all. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but once you got them home, you regretted buying them. Don’t worry, we’re all guilty of it. If you want to save yourself some time in the mornings, you need to streamline your wardrobe. Get rid of all the surplus and cut your collection down to the items that you actually wear. You can still make great outfits with a few select pieces, and some clever accessories. If it seems like an impossible task, here are a few tips to help you get started.

Hanging Clothing Rack

Online Shopping

The internet has made shopping so much easier. Find what you want, and you can have it sent straight to you in a few days. But it’s also a big part of the reason that we’ve all ended up with so many unworn clothes in the wardrobe. One of the major benefits of shopping in a store is that you can try the clothes on. You don’t get that luxury online, and there’s a lot of fluctuation between the sizes that different designers offer, so you can often end up buying something that doesn’t fit you. It’s also difficult to gauge the quality of the clothes from a photograph. Half the time you end up buying something that looked great online, then when it turns up, you realize it’s cheap and nasty.

Most of these problems come about when we buy from retailers that we don’t know. There’s so many out there, and we are often fooled by the low prices. The best way to make sure you don’t fill your wardrobe with junk from the internet is to shop with retailers that you can trust. They won’t always offer the same low prices, but if you look out for things like a Nordstrom rack coupon, you can still get some great deals.

Don’t Buy What You Already Have

Seems obvious, right? But you’re probably doing it without even realizing. If you’ve already got a few pairs of blue jeans, do you need any more? We often convince ourselves that we do, because the style is slightly different, but you can make the same outfits with the ones you already have.

Have A Clear Budget

If you restrict yourself to spending a certain amount each month, you can avoid buying unnecessary clothes. You’ll be forced to be much more ruthless when you’re shopping. If you waste half your budget on things that you don’t need, you’ll be stuck when it comes to buying the items that you will actually need.

Who Do You Shop With?

You can’t completely absolve yourself of the blame. At the end of the day, you’re the one that decides to buy the clothes, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any bad influences out there. If you often go shopping with a friend or family member that encourages you to buy things that you don’t need, maybe you should think about going alone. You can think more rationally, without being peer pressured into making impulse purchases.

When The Travel Inspiration Well Runs Dry Wed, 26 Apr 2017 00:29:59 +0000 Continue reading ]]> If you already have your summer holiday booked, good for you! The sun is fast approaching, and you’ll be jetting away before you know. For the less lucky among us, we have yet to book. Deciding where to go isn’t always easy, especially for those who jet away often. The travel inspiration well doth run dry, and it’s hard to know how to satisfy that travel bug. The good news is, there’s plenty of travel inspo out there if you know where to look. And, if you don’t, we’ve got a few tips to help you out!

World Scratch Travel Map


Literature may not be the first place many of us go to find travel inspiration. But, there’s a lot to be learned about every subject in a good book, even traveling! If you’re not sure where to jet to next, turn to the people in the know. You could opt for classics, like Kerouac’s ‘On The Road,’ or a more literal travel memoir, like Gilbert’s ‘Eat, Pray, Love.’ Getting lost in travel writing is sure to lead you to your next ideal location. You might want to get reading, though. You don’t have long to decide!


Nowhere gives us such easy access to destinations as the internet. We have the whole world at our fingertips. So, make use of it when searching for new locations. Travel blogs can be a fantastic way to read up on a variety of destinations. They’re a good place to head if you have no ideas. Or, if you’re having trouble deciding between a few locations, research each. See what they have to offer, and compare. The good news is, you can book a trip to the loser next year!


Never underestimate the power of travel magazines. Many of us forget about these gems because of our internet exploits. But, there’s something about a travel magazine that can’t be beaten. They outline locations in a way a lot of websites fail to, and come complete with pictures. You could opt for a general travel mag, or something more specialized, like a ski or cruise magazine. These are a fantastic way to gain inspiration throughout the year. That way, you won’t struggle when next summer rolls around. A subscription would find a little piece of travel inspiration landing on your doorstep all year round.


For the more visual, television and films may be the first port of call. There’s no denying that this can be a fantastic way to see the scenery of a place. If you make your travel choices based on appearance, this would be perfect for you. Turn to programs set in other countries. With film, there are plenty to choose from. Some worth mentioning are ‘Into The Wild.’ ‘Seven Years In Tibet.’ and ‘Midnight In Paris.’. And, if you’re not keen on reading, skip the literature step and see if there are any movies of the books that appeal. Most of the time, you’ll find there are!

Why You Should Treat Your Routine Like A Business Tue, 25 Apr 2017 23:22:24 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Elle Macpherson is a bit of a celebrity in the world of beauty. Despite her advancing years, she still has a body that would make many twenty-year-old women jealous. So how does she do it? According to Elle, it’s all about treating your personal diary like your business diary. Scheduling a 45-minute program on the cross trainer is just as important and promoting her products or turning up to a meeting. In other words, it’s a priority. She says that if she doesn’t take “me time” then she finds that it’s often impossible to fit it all in.

Of course, organizing her personal life like it’s business isn’t the only way that she stays so young and beautiful and age 53. Here’s what else she does.

Burnout Workout Tank Top

Want To Lose Weight? Try Running

Macpherson doesn’t believe in people going out and running until they are on the verge of collapse. She says that it’s possible to get fit running just 20 minutes a day. She says that she doesn’t run for the whole time. Instead, she splits her workouts into one minute on, one minute off. By the time you get to the sixth interval, you can feel pretty puffed out, but because of the recovery periods, it’s not as intense or as boring as regular running. This kind of high-intensity training is ideal for anybody wanting to get fit fast.

Become A Believer In Maintenance

To Macpherson, maintenance means easy does it all year round. Instead of focusing on losing weight in January and hitting the gym hard, Macpherson maintains her regimen to some extent, all year round. She makes sure she drinks plenty of water, eats fruits and vegetables and treats herself to a square of dark chocolate every once in awhile. Macpherson always manages to find time for three meals a day. Her favorite foods include goats cheese, beetroot, quinoa, kale, barley and pine nuts.

Avoid Exercise Boredom

One of the reasons people learn about plastic surgery options is because they don’t want to face weeks of boring exercise. But Macpherson says that going out and grabbing some exercise doesn’t necessarily have to be dull. She doesn’t bother going to the gym. When she takes her exercise, she prefers being out in nature, experiencing the natural world like humans are supposed to. In practice, that means going out and doing sports like paddle boarding, road biking, and swimming. She says that she always wears sunscreen while she’s out in the elements to protect her skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

She Keeps Up Her Routine On Holiday

Holidays have a habit of destroying all your most carefully laid beauty plans. But Macpherson has a clever solution. She says that when she goes to the beach, she spends her time wading through the sea at thigh-high level as this provides the most resistance. This helps avoid having to walk up and down the beach in a bikini. She also likes to do lunges on the beach to strengthen up her calves and thighs.

Dress For Success: Impress At Your Job Interview Tue, 25 Apr 2017 22:03:29 +0000 Continue reading ]]> There are many ways to impress prospective employers at a job interview, but it’s first impressions that make the biggest impact. When you first walk in the door, you want to look the part for the job you’re interviewing for. The right outfit will be a notch more professional than how you usually dress, but it won’t be as glamorous as what you would wear to stand out at a party

Set of 5 pens

Additionally, wearing the right outfit can boost your confidence, which you will need in abundance when you’re sitting in a big office and answering questions about your capabilities. Here are a few suggestions to create the look of a successful businesswoman.


You have the option of either a trouser or skirt suit, whichever you feel most comfortable wearing. The general rule with the hemlines of a skirt is that there should be no more than four fingers above the knee, but opt for a knee-length skirt just to be safe.

Dress in neutral colors, such as navy blue, brown, or a light grey in the summer. Of course, you can never go wrong with a clean black suit. Your blouse should also be fairly modest, and it can be a crisp white, or a pale pastel color.

Alternatively, you can opt for a professional dress, but make sure it fits comfortably and it isn’t showing too much cleavage. If it pinches too much at the waist, you won’t feel comfortable and this will affect your performance.


Most suits come with a matching jacket, which you must make sure fits you properly. You won’t be able to sit comfortably in an interview if it’s too tight at the back. However, if you’ve opted to wear a smart dress that doesn’t have a matching jacket, you should be sure to wear one anyway, as it does look more professional.


You probably have an image in your head of a successful businesswoman carrying various iconic handbags as she goes about her business. While it is true that the right handbag is essential for carrying important documents (in this case, your resume and portfolio), an interview is not the best time to show off the crown jewel of your handbag collection. Opt for a simple black handbag that is big enough to carry your essential documents without creasing them. If you have one, your best option is a briefcase.


An interview is also not the best time to show off how well you can walk in 9-inch heels. Keep your shoes fairly basic, and no more than 3-inches high. You’ll make a better impression on your interviewer if you don’t stumble your way into their office or wince in pain because your shoes are too tight.


Avoid hair accessories, and keep your jewellery to a minimum; maybe a simple necklace, a watch, and a ring. You should also aim for a professional-looking hairstyle, but nothing too complicated, such as a bun, ponytail, or natural waves.

Cupshe swim Tue, 25 Apr 2017 10:00:06 +0000 Continue reading ]]> You know the type site- they pop up on your Facebook with too-good-to-be-true prices promising the trendiest pieces + free shipping. I have, unfortunately, fallen victim to sizing that makes no sense and quality deficiencies that you can’t see online, but I’ve learned my lesson. Read the reviews, check and double check the sizing chart, and don’t spend a ton of money if you’re unsure. Sarah did a great review of one such site when she had some great luck with StyleWe, so i figured I’d let you in on my new summer lifesaver: Cupshe.

I’ve ordered inexpensive bathing suits before and ended up with ill-fitting, unlined messes. This is not the case with Cupshe. I have a difficult time finding bathing suites that fit me anyway, usually having the best luck at (surprise!) Target. But the Cupshe Melodic Blues One-piece Swimsuit caught my eye and I knew I had to at least try it. AND GUESS WHAT! Even though it’s white and I’m a funky shape, it fits like a dream! The off-the-shoulder makes it sexy but I still feel covered enough to be confident. I’m a solid medium. Just for fun, I also got the Cupshe Cute Succulent Plants Floral Bikini Set because I lurve the design on the top. Again, perfect. I don’t think I’ve been the same size on the top and bottom since 8th grade, but the medium worked so nicely! 10/10 recommend this site. Make sure to check the size chart, because I thought I would be a large. And your suit(s) may take a bit to come in, but I promise the wait is totally worth it for the quality/ price (all under $30!)

Check out some of my faves!

Let It Be Colors! Tue, 25 Apr 2017 01:26:24 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Among the many and inspiring fashions for the spring/summer season, it is impossible not to have spotted the super bright trends that are taking over the catwalks like a rainbow on a dull day. Color is everywhere, and everything can become a bold and bright accessory to mark your love for colors. Because, if we are honest, it is difficult not to love colors. Of course, a full-on bright fashion trend is not for everyone – it’s tricky to feel confident enough to pull out some of the catwalk’s looks – but it doesn’t mean that you should be happy in a world of neutrals and dull colors. After all, 50 Shades of Gray was never a reference for the fashion that women love to wear every day. We, ladies, are not boring, and therefore we should totally embrace this bright wave of positivity that is spreading through the fashion world. Thankfully, fashion is a wonderful thing: You can use smart accents, accessories and beauty styles as well as clothes to create your own sense of fashion. In short, if you’re not one to wear a bright yellow dress, that’s fine. Maybe a bright belt will do the trick just as nicely. Let’s have a look at how you can best let the colors into your world.

Friends Over Pho Midi Skirt

So Much Choice

For a start, they are more colors that we have words for them. In truth, there is even such a thing as a shade of paint called dead salmon, so you can imagine that designers have come up with more colors than we can name. Therefore, it can be a little overwhelming at first to pick the most suitable color for your personality – unless you already have favorite colors, of course. As silly as it might sound, sometimes all you need is to identify with the energy of a color scheme to know what’s right for you. Sounds complicated? Imagine that each color is associated with a personality trait, such as vermilion for people who are warm, helpful and welcoming, for example. Your choice of colors often says something about you, even if it only unconsciously. So it can be helpful to find out what people think of different color schemes so that you’re not sending the wrong message.

Colorful Accessory That Goes With Nothing And Everything

The easiest and quirkiest way to embrace the bright fashion is to pick a fashion accessory that is out of the ordinary. For example, you can have a look at colorful jewelry, such as the custom-made bracelet from the Kendra Scott color bar. This could be your bright fashion accent. When you pick a colorful accessory, it’s likely that it will not always be fully coordinated with the rest of your clothes. But it is exactly what the bold, colorful fashion trend is about. So be brave and don’t be afraid of clashing. If you are naturally shy, pick a small accessory, such as a bracelet, a pair of earrings, or a belt. If you are feeling more confident, go bold and look for a bright and joyful handbag or a pair of bright pink or green shoes.

Simple Colorful Everyday Item

Not everyone likes the idea of changing their style to embrace a new fashion trend, however appealing it might be. But you don’t need to change your wardrobe to go bright. If you are a gadget lover, you can find plenty of brightly colored high-tech gear online – check first for discounted prices online via, though – from a step-counter to an activity-tracker for fitness enthusiasts, or maybe the latest smartphone model in blue, red, or gold if you’re not into fitness. You can bring colors to your world without breaking the bank with bright and playful covers for your IT gadgets. In short, just because you want to roll on with the color fashion, it doesn’t mean that you should be buying a brand new wardrobe. You can use colorful everyday items that are not part of your outfit too. After all, fashion is what you make of it.

That One Piece Of Clothing You Need

It may seem tricky to bring bright fashion into the workplace if you want to introduce colorful clothes, but you can be playful while staying decent. The easiest way to add a touch of color without going against the dress code is to pick one colorful item, let’s say a skirt, and to combine it with a formal blouse. Or if you want to brighten up your wardrobe in a simple and effective way, you can have a look for one colorful cardigan or a bright pair of shoes. Thus you can stick to a formal business outfit, such as the classic little black dress, and avoid any negative comment from the management or the HR department.

A Bold Hairstyle To Brighten Up The Day

If you are lucky enough to add a bright pop of color to your everyday lifestyle without fearing from being reprimanded by your boss, do seize the opportunity to dye your hair. Current trends are varying from a playful dip and dye hairstyle in delightful green, blue, pink and purple tones, to a full-on rainbow head, such as seen on The effect goes from edgy to funky, and it’s up to you – and your hairdresser – what you pick. Although there are a few things to remember: Purple shades are better suited for dark hair, while pink, mermaid, and orange are better for blondes. However, with a bit of magic and a lot of careful treatment, you can get away with almost any color on your head.

Why Do You Need Colors?

Finally, it’s worth asking ourselves why colors are so important in the current fashion trend. In reality, colors have always been important, because they affect the brain and the mind in different ways.  For example, blue is naturally associated with space and calm, while red is a passionate color that indicates love and affection. People react emotionally to colors, and their presence can lift your mood significantly. In short, while you may not need to ditch the classic black dress, but you should add a touch of sentiment to it.

Travel bug: Florence Tue, 25 Apr 2017 00:33:35 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Whether you’re thinking of visiting Florence soon, or you’d just like to learn more about this incredible city, you’ve come to the right place! Here we have 11 fun facts about Florence, so you can decide if this is somewhere you’d like to visit for yourself. Take a look at them and see what you could discover if you planned a visit. Enjoy!

Photograph of the Duomo in Florence

Nearly A Third Of The World’s Art Treasures Are Located In Florence

If you’re interested in art, Florence is the place to be. It’s not only a piece of art in itself according to UNESCO, it also has a third of the world’s art treasures here. The Uffizi Gallery, for instance, has the largest collection of Renaissance art. There are so many more art museums in Florence it would take longer than a month to visit them all! If you’re there for the art, try to make sure you book an extended trip! You can enjoy beautiful sites, as well as art in the many museums and galleries here. Don’t forget your camera.

Florence Was The First City In Europe With Paved Streets

It was in 1339 when Florence became the first city in the whole of Europe to have paved streets. Maybe this means all roads lead to Florence!

The People Of Florence Are Called Florentines

You should call the people of Florence ‘Florentines’, or ‘Fiorentino’ if you’re practicing your Italian. Florentines actually have their own unique dialect. This dialect is the parent dialects for modern Italian!

Pinnochio Is From Florence

You must know of Pinocchio, even if you’ve only ever heard of the Disney film. Pinnochio is actually a Florentine! The original book was published between 1881 and 1883 by a Florentine named Carlo Lorenzini. This pretty much makes Pinocchio a Florentine too.

Florence Nightingale Is A Florentine

Florence Nightingale is named after the place she was born. She was born in Florence on May 12th 1820. A famous nurse who helped nurse soldiers from the Crimean war back to health, she was the founder of modern nursing, making people see that clean hospitals and trained nurses helped people to get better.

Florence was actually named the capital of Italy back in 1865. It was named so thanks to it’s incredible art and architecture, as well as it being the birthplace of the Italian renaissance. However, it later switched due to the symbolism of Rome as the head of the Roman empire. The ancient city was also more central than Florence. After just six years, in 1871, the government officially moved to Rome. Although only brief, Florence’s time as the capital had some benefits. The population grew tenfold, and the city continued to grow well into the 20th century. If it wasn’t for this brief stint, who knows where Florence would be now?
