One of the things I love about London is the staggering number of cafes and coffee shops that exist. Fun fact… I have a Google Map on my phone of all the coffee shops I like, or want to try. I’m not even kidding… I’ve got 30 or so saved on there at the moment, and I’m always adding more… You might remember my mentioning in my post about being an introverted extrovert, that I prefer doing my socializing over a nice latte or a cup of tea, so when it came time to make plan to meet up with Michelle, I whipped out my handy map and picked a spot. I’d mentioned Hally’s as a potential location, and Michelle quickly confirmed that it was also on her radar… so off we went!Continue Reading
I got my very first tattoo when I was 23. It was something I’d been thinking about for a little while, so I decided to treat myself to a tattoo for my birthday. I had a nerdy Shakespeare phase, so I decided to get the quote, “Be not afraid of greatness,” from my favorite play across my ribs. It’s a little cheesy perhaps, but it was a decision I certainly don’t regret. I also like that it’s hidden away, so most people don’t even realize I have it! It didn’t take long before I was thinking about getting a second tattoo. I threw lots of ideas around, before finally setting on something that I thought would be good. After a few years of having this idea in the back of my brain, I finally decided it was time!Continue Reading
I will happily admit to you that one of my favorite meals to make, when I want to be a little fancy without too much effort is risotto. It always feels a bit like an indulgence, but doesn’t take an overwhelmingly long time to make which is perfect really! This is a dish that P requests on a regular basis, and I’m always happy to oblige!
Another month gone! It seems like the year is moving so quickly! As you might have noticed, I haven’t posted one of these in a little while, because I decided in the end that it might be better as a monthly sort of round of post instead of weekly. So this time round, I’m sharing some great things about the month of October!Continue Reading
So, if you’ve been living under a rock, you might not be aware that there’s a certain US beauty brand that is HUGE in the blogging world, and it’s finally available in the UK! Launch Day, October 9th, dawned grey and gloomy, but bloggers all over the country were making a mad dash the Glossier website to put in orders straight away. I didn’t go too crazy (LBH, I only went as crazy as my bank account would allow) and ordered myself 4 products that I had been dying to get my hands on. Here’s what I tried out:
You wanna hear something crazy?! P and I are celebrating 6 years together this week! Actually, what you’re looking at in the above image is actually some of the remnants of our lives when we were still living apart. For the first three years of our relationship, P and I were long-distance, and we used to save little souvenirs from the times we were together… train tickets, cards we sent to each other, tickets to places we went, literally everything! From time to time, I like to take out the box and have a look through it. That’s actually what inspired this post… Long distance relationships are hard, and taught me a lot about myself, about life and about relationships (not just romantic ones). Now that I’m in the UK with P, I’m basically in a long distance relationship with all my friends and family back home. I thought I’d share with you a few things that I’ve learned over the years.Continue Reading
