Hello from London!
I have some exciting stuff to tell you this week, so let’s get started:
I don’t want to get into the reasons why here (although, if you are interested, I could write another post about it), but I have been thinking about leaving for years. One thing or another, though, always held me back.
What was never in doubt was my destination: London. I absolutely love the city. Yes, it’s big and chaotic, and can feel a little lonely at times, but it never bores you. There is so much to see and do and lots of opportunities for those who know how to grasp them (me, I’m learning 😉 ). A big change from sleepy old Senigallia when nothing ever happens!
Three weeks ago I finally took the plunge. I moved to a nice house in Tower Hamlets, and since then I have been busy exploring the city and looking for a job, which is why I am less active on social media, take longer to reply to your emails and comments, and am not commenting on other blogs so often.
But I am finally settling into some sort of routine, so I trust things will get back to normal soon. I definitely plan to become a lot more active on social media and share all London has to offer with you. I have taken plenty of photos, but haven’t had the time to upload them yet. Sorry about that!
I’m really excited about the move. It’s something that I wanted for so long and I can hardly believe I’m finally living in London. I signed the tenancy agreement till early September, but if everything goes to plan, I’ll never leave. Wish me luck! But regardless of how long I’ll stay you can be sure I’ll make the most of my time here and share my new adventure with you. 🙂
I have so many excited things to tell you, but I’ll reserve them for the future. I don’t want get this post to get too long. I just wanted to let you know what was going on with me, and, if you are in London this summer, let me know so we can meet. 🙂
Have you ever moved abroad? Or just been to London?
What I’m Reading Now
Are You On The List? A guide on how to become a modern Socialite by Kitty Brucknell, Lewis-Duncan Weedon, Olivia Cox
Socialite: a high-profiled person in society, whom often engages in social activities such as parties and other exclusive gatherings. Someone who everyone wants to be.
Are you on the list? If no, not worries. Kitty Brucknell, Lewis-Duncan Weedon, and Olivia Cox will help you get there. Their book is full of tips on how to look good, feel great, and be successful. They share their beauty and fashion secrets, how to get invited to front row, how to host great parties, and, the section that I found most useful, how to network.
Each author brigs something different to the table. Kitty Brucknell is cheerful and extrovert. Reading her chapters feels like gossiping with a friend. Lewis-Duncan Weedon is straightforward and goes straight to the point. His advice is very insightful. Olivia Cox is shier and an introvert so her chapters resonate well with those of us who’d like to be more sociable but don’t know how.
Witty and informative, Are You On The List? is a great read for older teens and young adults who are brunching out in the world by themselves. It’s available at Amazon.
