Lifestyle: London life12 April 2015
So I thought this post was about due as 8 months ago I moved to London and can honestly say it was the best move and decision I have ever made. London is everything everyone says it is, fast paced, hectic, smelly, loud, expensive...
I spend every morning and every night under the arm pit of some hairy man (sadly, never a hot man). Once the suffocating commute is done I am rushing down the street tutting at the slow walkers as I make my way to work. I am 40 minutes early, but yes I am still rushing, because in London everyone rushes. Once the rushing is done I get into work, do what I need to do before breaking the daily slog up with trip out for lunch.
Usually spending money in Pret, Itsu or at a new smoothie place it's then back to to the office until 6pm. The rushing and commuting takes place again and its home to my lovely housemates, I'll eat, blog and then finally go to bed, absolutely exhausted. Then repeat.
Everyday I see something new whether its a cool piece of wall-art or amazing street style inspo.
I've tried foods I would never have even touched before (no joke I now eat avocado, quinoa and Buckwheat).
I have made new friends who have now become very good friends (and excellent boozing buddies)
The monthly oyster card ticket - with this card all travel at the weekend is basically free (it's not but it feels like it is).
I can officially say I work in fashion.
There is always something to do.
There are the coolest vintage shops, hidden car-boots and vintage market stalls ever in London.
My local pub shuts at 2am every Friday and Saturday night and its a proper good East End London boozer, oh and it's award winning to!
There are better places to take blog pics, better roads, houses, graffiti, walls whatever back drop you fancy London's got it.
I can finally go to Blog events with minimal drama and no expensive train ticket.
It's cultural and interesting and forces you to learn about people and things you would never have needed to before.
I regularly meet people with the same interests as me... blogging, shopping, photography, drinking *ahem*
Anyway the list could go on trust me, but I just wanted to jot a couple of notes down about our wonderful capital and my experience of moving to it. If your thinking of moving here then do it, don't wait, do it. I waited until I was 28 and my only regret is not doing it sooner.
