My name is Victoria (/Torie since I typically don’t respond to Victoria… But I’m trying to be professional here!) and this is my blog. I chose to title it Florence and Lavender for these are 2 of my favourite things. As an Art History student, my head has been filled with images from the wonderful city of Florence and the art that has emerged from it. Then, a couple of years ago, I had a chance to travel there with some of my best art friends and ever since I have been in love with the city!
I love lavender for it reminds me of my trips to France and England. I went to Oxford for a month when I was in high school and in almost every field there waved lavender. You could smell it for miles. Then, for a graduation present I went to Paris with my mother. Our hotel had crates of lavender sitting outside the doors everyday. So now, whenever I smell lavender, I am reminded of all of these beautiful places, art, and feelings.
I wanted to explain my reasoning behind the title for maybe it would tell you a little more about me! Being a student here at university has made my life full of essays, exams, and committees and I am ready for some creativity! I will be sharing my travels, photography, kitchen adventures, and the occasional fashion inspiration (I do love my fashion blogs – what girl doesn’t?).
I hope you enjoy!
