Moving to the Big City - London

Hello! It's been such a long time since I posted on my blog, my little space on the internet I created over 5 years ago. It's a space that although I neglect for periods at a time, I always find it to be my happy place when I return. 

So much has happened in the last year, mainly my big move to London! Since I practically grew up to and froing from London, I always wanted to move there, especially as I got older and knew that's where I belonged. I had the urge in me so much more in the last year and finally landed myself a job and moved in with my boyfriend down South. 

I kind of had, but mostly hadn't taken into account the impact of leaving the home I'd lived in for the last 23 years. You miss the little things you would always take for granted, such as dog cuddles, mum cuddles(!) and not paying for most day to day things.. (definitely one to make the most of!). Of course, home is only a few hours away and I can visit whenever I want to and I'm so grateful for that.

I've been living here for over two weeks now and I'm still yet to explore so many cool places, but me and my friend Julija took an after-work detour to the Millenium Bridge to shoot these cool pictures around the Thames, St Paul's Cathedral and the Shard. We just about caught the last of the summer sun! I haven't done these kind of pictures for years, (due to low confidence), but I'm so happy with how they came out! I definitely want to shoot more pictures and hopefully create better content.

Like I said, I haven't explored a lot since moving to London as I've been so incredibly busy with work and trying to find a work-life balance. I used to work for Clinique, part-time in a department store so jumping from that to full-time work, (London hours!), is a huge time of adjustment for me. I'm loving my new job, it's a totally different type of work for me and I already feel in my element and I enjoy the fast-paced environment and reliance on me to get things done! I was so afraid to make such a drastic change, but it's felt like such a seamless transition and I finally feel like I have prospects for the future. 

I get that city life isn't for everybody, but I've always felt so comfortable and truly in my element hopping around the tube, feeling tiny amongst the huge buildings. I find myself wandering around on my lunch hour just getting lost in the beautiful streets and immaculate gardens. (I work in a beautiful area!).

That's all I have to say for now, I just wanted to share these amazing pictures and chat about my new move! I'm so excited to explore more of my new city. We have lots of cool travels coming up soon, and whilst I don't see myself vlogging again just yet, I'd like to share them in blog posts/travel guides!
