Being Single in London

Being Single in London

Lately, I’ve heard a lot of my single friends talking about how upset they are that they haven’t met ‘the one,’ settled down, and gotten married yet. This baffles me to no end. Each one of them is fabulous, beautiful, and clever, and yet they act like their life won’t begin until they meet him (or her- I have guy friends too.) That’s simply not true, and yet they let it ruin their confidence and self-esteem while at the same time ruining their chances of happiness while they’re still single.

I know many of you out there feel the same, so listen up. Being single is not a crime, nor is it a punishment. You don’t have to stay in and be miserable on Saturday nights or feel ashamed when you’re seated at the ‘single table’ at your cousin’s wedding. Here are a few things to remember while you’re waiting for the one to arrive.

Online Food: Who Knew it was This Easy?

Online Food: Who Knew it was This Easy?

Ben introduced me to something fun today- the joys of buying food, food gifts, and food hampers online. How did I not know this existed? It makes it so easy to purchase yummy items without having to actually get up, change into something presentable, and fight my way through the crowds at the stores on my only day off. Instead, I was able to explore a world of delicious treats and high quality drinks without ever leaving our apartment.

As you can image, it was a fun day indeed. Before I chose a website to order from, though, I looked at several to see which ones offered the best prices, the best selection, and appeared trustworthy enough for my business. I found three that I absolutely loved.

I decided to take a journey up North as I rarely get out of the capitol.  My friend moved up there because she got a job at a Magento development agency (not exactly sure what this is).  Anyhoo – I spent Friday night at the Manchester Magento meetup – again no idea what they were talking about but I did meet a chap!  More to follow

Living in London: What to Expect

Living in London: What to Expect

I’ve dreamed of living in London since I was a little girl. The high street fashion and the beautiful city life called to me, and it seemed like the perfect place to find everything I’d ever wanted. I’m not going to say that moving to London was easy, although Ben and a job I love made me feel almost right at home. I’m still occasionally homesick, and there are times when I wish I could be surrounded by my family.

Despite this, London is an amazing place to live, full of diversity, industry, and culture. While it has its drawbacks, its benefits far outweigh them.

Update: Summer Cardigans are in

Update: Summer Cardigans are in

Do you ever find yourself getting excited when you find that one of your favourite items of clothing is actually ‘in’ this season? No? Just me? Well I can’t tell you just how fantastic it was to find out that summer cardigans are in style right now.

Why?

It’s summer, and that means it’s hot outside, obviously, so most of us are looking for clothing to wear that’s light and airy so we can deal with the heat outdoors. The problem is, the outdoor temperature sets off a chain of events. Our bosses get hot, so they turn on the air conditioner in the office and set it to as low a temperature as possible. We walk into the building and breathe a sigh of relief when we feel the cold blast of air. Five minutes later, however, we’re huddled in the corner, shivering like we’ve just entered the ice age.
