The blog also contains three local city guides to Copenhagen, Florence and Rome which I continue to update with new content.
Because in an increasingly more hectic, materialistic and digital world I believe it is time to slow down, live with less (but better) things, step away from the computer for a while and be a bit more analogue.
By sharing stories, places and products it is my hope that readers will find inspiration to start living (or to continue living) a simpler, slower and more sustainable life - one step at the time and always on their own conditions.
My name is Birgitte Brøndsted. I am Danish - from Copenhagen - but I have lived in Italy for almost 15 years. For many years I lived and worked in Rome, but since 2011 I have been based in Florence where I live with my daughter + our 2 very cute cats. We love Italy but we also like to travel to Copenhagen as often as possible (minus the cats!).
When I don't blog I work as a lifestyle photographer taking portraits of kids and families or I translate legal documents from Danish to Italian or the other way around.
When I am not blogging, taking photos of kids and families or translating documents I can be found hanging out with my daughter at the playground, taking lots of photos just for the fun of it, drinking coffee with soy milk, spending too much time on Instagram, or - my most favorite thing to do - simply enjoying the little things in life.
