Welcome to Florence Finds!

So, a new blog!

Hello! and a massive welcome to all of you who are here to see what Florence Finds is all about.

Let me give it to you straight, (because I always do.)

Florence Finds is a lifestyle blog for everyday style in everyday life. Not unachievable style, or ridiculously expensive style, but style for everyone.

It’s not just about fashion, because style is everywhere. On Florence Finds you’ll find interiors and decor, beauty and travel too – all the things I love and I hope you will find somethingΒ amongstΒ my selection that you’re interested in! You can also expect to find cultural tid bits, books and films, outdoor living, foodie inspiration and intelligent conversation from like-minded women. Every single one of you is welcome here.

So many of you will have found Florence Finds and know me, Rebecca, because of the 18 months I spent contributing at Rock My Wedding. After my time there came to a close I found myself at a bit of a loose end and contemplating my next move. I was never only about ‘the big day’ in the first place, so why not branch out into another type of blog? So many of the comments I received reflected on the fashion and home posts I wrote or even just the posts about the every day dilemmas and decisions that we all find ourselves faced with in modern life. Time passed and as I looked around me I saw so many things to write about, that I wanted to share. A lifestyle blog became the obvious decision.

Since then I’ve been putting a lot of thought into what modern women want. I’m pretty sure that most of you are like me – you don’t want to read about just fashion or just interiors. You have weeks on end where all you can think about is updating your wardrobe but then something changes and you fancy redecorating or sorting out the garden. One day you might need a new lipstick to brighten up your life and another you might just feel like curling up in your jogging bottoms on the sofa with a cracking book and a great big mug of tea, or baking up a storm in the kitchen. And I think we all need a place where you can talk freely about topical issues, whether they be thought provoking headlines or not-quite-world-changing, but interesting-all-the-same subjects, like your perfect weight or advice on female friendship.

So this is the next chapter, in my life and yours. Perhaps you’re married and looking for a new blog to obsess over, maybe you’re a style savvy bright young thing or revelling in your thirties (or forties and even beyond) whilst keeping up to date with the trends. This is your new daily stop off with UK specific (where possible) inspiration, whether it’s for that hot date you have later, (lucky you!) something to try this weekend (Nom Nom!), or just simply a little ‘pick me up’ over a coffee or glass of vino, while you immerse yourself in Florence Finds.

Lastly, I’m not the only person you will be seeing around here. The bulk of it will be the Rebecca you’re all used to(!) but I am thrilled to be able to mix things up a bit with regular and one-off contributors, chosen for their knowledge or enthusiasm for the topics they’ll be covering and witty take on life, from books, to real home renovations, travel tips and more. You will also see me regularly inviting reader submissions on various things and I hope you will be brave enough to respond!

I am really excited. Ready-to-explode excited. I have so many ideas and would love to hear from you if you think there’s something we can do to make Florence Finds better. Drop me an email and please leave a comment to say ‘Hi’ – let me know what you think of the blog design too.

And here’s the big ask… I need your help. Please tweet your socks off today about Florence Finds, post about us on your facebook page, email or text your friends and if you know anyone who enjoyed my posts in the past, make sure they know about my new home!

So welcome to Florence Finds! Take a look around, if you like something, leave me a comment and be sure to come back everyday as we have lots of stylish finds (often twice a day) in store for you. πŸ™‚


PS. If you’re a Facebook user and want to stay up to date please hop on over to the Florence Finds Facebook page (or click the link in the right hand side column) and like us. Florence Finds is also on Twitter @FlorenceFinds. All of the above images were taken from my Pinterest account where you can follow more of my finds.

    Thank you so much to everyone who has popped in and left comments… Keep them coming, this is an open house kinda blog, all chit chat and comments welcome!

  5. Me again…..from a purely selfish point of view, and as I am in the middle of a major house renovation project, I would love to see your stylish finds of cool and quirky kitchen accessories that won’t break the bank ~ Standard stuff like kettle, toaster, breadbin, tea/coffee canisters etc. Hard as I try I just cannot find anything I like. xx

  6. Woohoo – I felt a bit lost when you left RMW as I didn’t even read it for the weddings mostly the other stuff so this is PERFECT and I know it will be a huge success.

    It just feels so bright, fresh and new… whatever happened in the past was definitely meant to be and this just proves that you were always meant for bigger and better!! xx

  7. YAY!

    I love this. I love the site and I love the fact that you have decided to do something like this. Oh and just added to my google reader.

    I am also very eager to hear more about book club and contributions! I’ll have to be ‘bargain bitch’ right now though…what with wedding costs :/

  8. Love it! So glad you are back in the world of blogs! Just read all the previous posts and I am already hooked. Can not wait for more! πŸ™‚

  9. Old RMW reader here who has followed you over to your new home! Was so sad to see you leave the blog over the summer, and regretted not leaving a comment for you then, but now I can say how happy I am to see this wonderful new blog which is just what I need in my life right now as I start my second year of married life! Welcome back Rebecca, have tonnes of fun with your new project xxx

  10. Hi Rebecca

    This looks so gorgeous, well done! I am really looking forward to the decor tips and just advice on life, I am at a real crossroad in my life now and it feels quite lonely really! My hubby is great but there is nothing like thought provoking discussion with other women. I can’t wait!

    Congratulations you have been missed!!!

  11. Welcome back lady πŸ™‚

  13. Hey Rebecca,
    I’m loving the new blog, (already added it my google reader feed). And have spent a happy lunch hour working my way through your previous posts. As somebody who aspires to gardening glory but has a black thumb any gardening tips would be much appreciated,

  14. Already loving this. Can I please request also posts relating to health (especially womens health but also health in relation to weight loss, skincare etc) – I think this is something that’s massively missing from lifestyle blogs atm.

  15. Yeay Rebecca you’re back! I can’t tell you how good it is to read your writing again! I love that you’ve crafted your own little world over here, it looks like it is going to be fabulous! This is just what I need right now.

  19. Hello Rebecca,
    I am thoroughly excited for your new venture!! I saw a tweet last night promoting Florence Finds and didn’t realise it was you, i saw a Rebecca mentioned and crossed my fingers that it could be the one and the very same! I am an avid follower of RMW and enjoy every post, past and present, and am happy to admit that I shed a little tear when you left their midst.
    I look forward to following you!!
    Love Anna

  20. Rebecca!!!! Yay!!!!!

  22. Wow, Just had a nosey round the site and it looks blinking amazing! So much work you have put in, I’m so impressed. I will be using it as my style bible from today x

  23. Have been following your guest posts on AOW & LMD but now so thrilled that you have your own shiny fantastic amazing blog and CANNOT wait to see what you have in store for us! Go Rebecca!!! xxx

  24. Hi Rebecca!

    Damn time difference and lack of home computer renders this comment a little late.

    I cannot believe how good this site looks. I don’t have any other ‘all rounders’ to read so this one looks like it fits the bill! Very excited to see what gets posted up on these pages.


  25. Rebecca, Where have I been???!!! Oh yes, trying to find somewhere to live in HK and generally sweating a lot (nice) – I can’t believe I didn’t know about Florence Finds! I am so happy to have found you, the blog looks awe inspiring. Good luck, not that you need it

    Love from The Oathams x

  26. Perfect perfect perfect. You are going straight to the top of my bookmarks and I’m about to like you on Facebook. As someone who’s separated and getting divorced, my greatest fear was that you would return only to do more wedding-stuff, which I’m sure you’d do well but is the last thing I want right now, so I am SO GLAD you’re doing something else. Can’t wait x

  27. Fantastic site Rebecca! I loved your writing style on RMW and i’ve bookmarked florencefinds after just browsing the fashion section. Best of luck, i’m sure it will be fabulous!xx
