Why The Hiatus?

I have to apologise!  It’s been almost a month since I last wrote something on my site… …So, I’m sorry. It’s been too long and there hasn’t been a day where I haven’t thought about writing. So why has it taken me this long to talk to you guys? Well.. As you all know I went travelling for a month around the U.S (check out previous blog posts) and it was a great time, but I’ve been back for over a month now and my life has changed a lot since I got back. Firstly, I don’t live in London anymore. I had a strong feeling in my gut that I wouldn’t be coming back to my ordinary life. As soon as I got into Gatwick coming from Los Angeles I just knew I wasn’t ready to go back to London. Why? Honestly, I was getting sick of it before I left. The weather, the people, the commute. Everything was grinding my gears and I needed to escape. Now I’m back in Hertfordshire where my …

Solo Travelling: New York

After completing my first 24 hours in New York City I feel confident enough to tell myself… “Hell yeah YOU did it!!!!” The lead up to my flight was quite stressful because, me being me, I left everything until the last minute. I’m talking important things like travel insurance and converting my £ to $. So after accepting my unorganised self, I got on with it as best I could and you know what? I made it to New York in one piece, with my luggage intact. After many sleepless nights and text messages from worried friends, I was starting to re-think the idea of doing this on my own. So many things can go wrong! I miss my flight, I get lonely, I run out of money, I get lost in a city I don’t know… All of these things could of happened or might still happen. However, I’ve made it this far and I wont let fear overtake the huge feeling of accomplishment. Travelling alone on an aeroplane full of strangers, successfully finding …

5 Lessons Learnt Living in London

I’ve spent the first 3 years of my 20’s in London working, meeting new people and expanding my mind… With life moving at what only feels like 100mph, I’m taking this opportunity to stop time for a moment and reflect… When I think of London, I think of it as my home. Home is where you feel most like yourself and at ease. It’s a crazy city and not much of it is peaceful, but whenever I go away and come back to London, I feel content. Even if I’ve had an amazing holiday, knowing that I’ll be coming back to London makes me happy. So why do I love it so much? What have I learnt? 1. There are people on your wave length Where I lived before London, I had 0 friends that wanted the same things out of life as me. They say to surround yourself with people who inspire you and I feel like I did exactly that. Now I have a handful of wonderful people who I trust and can …

February Favourites

February has been another whirlwind month for me & I can’t quite believe it’s March already… One of the reasons I love writing monthly favourites, apart from sharing with you the things I love, is that it’s an opportunity for me to check in with you guys on a more personal level… February has been such a fun & social month for me and I’m actually surprised at how much managed to fit into 28 days… After dreadful January finally came to an end, life started moving at a very fast pace. I’ve become totally aware that this year is going to be dramatically different from the past two and it’s been this past month where i’ve been planning & really thinking about my future.
