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.

Secrets of a Well-Dress Woman

Secrets of a Well-Dress Woman

When I first moved here and was offered my current position, I had dreams of walking around London in the latest fashions. Of course, I soon found out that while my salary more than pays the bills, it doesn’t always allow me to spend the money I’d like to improving my wardrobe. As a self-proclaimed shopaholic, it took me a little while to fully understand this. Over the last few months I’ve been working in London, though, I’ve come to realise that even though I’m on a fashion diet, I don’t have to starve.

With these few secrets I can enjoy shopping and do it in a smart way.

4 Clichés That Prove Love Sucks

4 Clichés That Prove Love Sucks

Sometimes I feel a little bit jealous when I see couples on the street, walking hand in hand and showing public displays of affection without any hesitation whatsoever. Sometimes that green monster comes out of me, and I want what they have. After all, love is the destination, right? It’s one of those goals in life that almost everyone strives for.

I say almost because I’m not one of those people. I may be jealous of strangers for a minute, but my mind swiftly brings me back to reality, to the realisation that love is nothing but a waste of time. At least, right now. I’m not saying that I’ll never attempt to find true love, but I just don’t have time for it or the horrors it brings right now.

Ciao Roma! My Trip and Shops You Can’t Miss

Ciao Roma! My Trip and Shops You Can’t Miss

If I could portray the squeals and screams of joy that have come out of my mouth this week in writing I would. Because there have been a lot. I just took a trip to Rome. 

It was for business, of course. With the hectic few week’s we’ve had preparing for the big fashion show, we’ve been getting clothing and accessories from all over. One top designer, who resides in Rome at the moment, had some items for us to collect, but didn’t trust them to be shipped. Instead, he requested we pick them up in Italy. I was one of the lucky two to be selected to make the trip and take responsibility for the items.
