A trip to Florence, Italy [Vlog]

Good morning/afternoon lovelies !

You may remember back around Thanksgiving time that Tom and I went on a little trip to Florence, my old stomping grounds (I lived there for a year for those that don’t know.) I took some videos and put them together for y’all. Enjoy this little quickie!

Also, be sure to subscribe to my channel on YouTube so you don’t miss any of my videos. I just recorded two new ones this weekend¬†(despite being sick with food poisoning) so there’s some goodness in store for you in the next couple of weeks.

Don’t forget if you have your own YouTube channel to leave it in the comments below. I’m always looking for new bloggers/vloggers to subscribe to!

Yeah, I don’t know either. But it was so fun and it’s where I started to grow my love for blogging.

Here’s a list of mistakes I’ve made along the way and that are fairly common with new bloggers. View Post
