I MOVED TO LONDON



LEFT: Packing. RIGHT: A first look at my new room.
 
 
Wow, yesterday I moved to London! I still have to visit Southampton next weekend to grab the rest of my things, but I'm pretty much all settled in...apart from the bulging bag of clothes on the floor that still needs ironing, sigh.
  Some of my dresses hung in my room
 
 
I'm living in an area of North London and it truly is lovely! The flat, (which I share with four other people), is bright, spacious and, after we'd scrubbed away at it for a few hours, clean. Also, the area itself is great; I live just five minutes from the train station and five minutes in the opposite direction takes me to a few roads of quaint little cafes, quirky bars and trendy restaurants.    
Views from the back of the house...lots of trees so I wake up to birds singing! ^_^


I'm interested to see how quickly I settle in to my new routine...it should only take me 40 minutes to get to my internship now. The next thing on my to do list is to find a job! I'm going to look for something part time near to where I live so that I can earn money whilst not interning, or alternatively if I do come across anything full time that's relevant to what I would one day like to do, I will apply to that to. Wish me luck!

I'm really sorry if my blog looks a little neglected at the moment, I assure you I have not abandoned it, I am just a busy bee moving and whatnot and I don't have internet in my new flat! (I'm using a dongle, sigh). I have some great new outfit posts scheduled and even a giveaway so I hope you'll enter! Oh, and don't forget to please support me in the Elle magazine competition. I really do appreciate it. 

I grew up in a tiny village in Devon, surrounded by fields and spending my weekends climbing trees and eating picnics. I really hope that in me taking this next step and moving to a fashion capital to pursue my dreams, I've inspired at least some of you who feel as though what you want is out of reach, to keep trying and BE DETERMINED!! xx

  3. It looks lovely! Congrats on the move! You've definately inspired me! Although my family live in London already, I study Architecture in the North West of England but when I graduate I definately want to get involved with Media/Fashion/Design and art, hopefully in NYC! :D

  9. Almost makes me want to leave Gothenburg and move to London. It's really beautiful!

    I was surpised by the swedish cider, feeling a bit proud it made its way out into the world.
