Essential London Apps

Let's talk apps. If you are moving to London or just traveling to London, these are some great apps. What's App What's App has been on my phone for years. It's a great way to chat/ call/ video call with your friends and family for free. When I moved here it was the easiest way... Continue Reading →

The London Lurgy

lurgy ˈləːɡi/ noun BRITISH humorous an unspecified or indeterminate illness. "I had caught the dreaded lurgy" So... Tuesday I woke up with what felt like daggers in my throat. I decided some hot coffee would help and went in to work. By noon, I was dragging, my head swimming and I had a low-grade fever. (I'm assuming... Continue Reading →

Broadway Market

Saturdays in Hackney you can head towards London Fields and go to Broadway Market! I've been trying to keep my step count up on the weekends so I've been making an effort to get out and walk to things I want to do and then I'll take public transport back (if it's far and if... Continue Reading →

West Hampstead

I realllllly need some paper hexies so I can do some hand sewing on the bus/train. I thought perhaps The Village Haberdashery might have them but nope. I have been wanting to visit their shop for some time though so I really enjoyed having a look around. It was smaller than I expected but they... Continue Reading →

I live in a spot that's not terribly close to a tube station. It's 15 minutes walk one direction (OLD STREET) or 20 minutes to... Continue Reading →

Commuting Part I

If you have ever lived in Los Angeles or even visited you know literally nobody walks in LA. Everything is a drive, and if it's not, you still drive. That being said you can imagine the shock to my body after walking 31 miles this week as opposed to the usual under 7 miles I... Continue Reading →

First Weekend

After sleeping like the dead the night I arrived I met up with two of my lovely friends over at Victoria Park. We took a nice hour and a half stroll around it before heading back to one of their flats after the weather took a turn. There's just something so great about sharing charcuterie...

I made it!

The last 2 months have been some of the absolute craziest of my life. I feel like I basically went to sleep after I accepted my new job, and woke up in London a month later. So much stress has happened in the last few weeks and I think I've essentially blocked it out. Which... Continue Reading →
