shake cafe | florence

I have only recently discovered Shake cafe in Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Well, I had passed by many times but only a couple of months ago did I pay a visit to the cafe and tried some of their food.

This place is perfect for a really quick lunch. The prices are low and you can sit outside in the square and look at all the things going on.

I had a somewhat disappointing experience with a tramezzino sandwich, but I absolutely loved their veggie soups. You can also have salads and wraps and as you can see from the photo we also tried a brownie to go with the cappuccino. Finally the place also sells ice cream and fresh fruit, juices and smoothies.

The space inside is very limited, so I suggest you go here on a beautiful day where you can sit outside or you can take your food with you.

Today I am happy to share some frames from one of the mini sessions last October. Isn't she just adorable?

I am starting to prepare my departure for Copenhagen and as you can probably imagine I can't wait to go home. I would like to grab the opportunity and remind you that I am more than happy to take on portrait assignments while I'm in Copenhagen, so in case you are interested just send me an e-mail.

christmas market in piazza santa croce | florence

To be honest I think I didn't get to see the Christmas market in Piazza Santa Croce last year, but since living in Florence I think that has been the only time it has happened. And the funny thing is that apparently I didn't miss anything from skipping one year. Because when I look back at my photos from previous years (2011, 2012) I see that it's the exact same things I photograph. Same things are being sold and served. 

It's nice anyway, although they could cut back a bit on the meat stuff. For a vegetarian like myself it is - to say it the least - overwhelming... 

Speaking about Christmas - I did a little piece for The Guardian about Christmas in Rome. Have a look!

Yesterday we paid a visit to the Stibbert Museum in order to see the annual vintage fair which takes place in the garden and inside the limonaia. It was really nice. Not so big, but the atmosphere was very cosy and I believe you can find some interesting things if you are into vintage.

You are still in time to go and see it. Today is the last day. And while you are there don't forget to take a walk in the park as well.

Limonaia Stibbert. Via Montughi 4.
