  • 2019: Things I’m excited about

    Naturally, after yesterday’s 2018 reflection post, today I’m bringing you 10 things I’m excited about in the new year – brought to you by a fantastic hangover and my inability to do anything else today but type my headache away with a bag of popcorn by my side. Despite saying that I’m usually a New Year’s resolutions/goals types of gal in yesterday’s post, I’ve decided not to specifically label them either this year. And what better way to not label something than to label it as a thing? There are so many new experiences, people and places headed my way, what fun would it be if I meticulously planned it all in advance? Plus, if I’m going in 2019 with not so specific goals, the risk of disappointment in 364 days is going to be significantly lower. For once I’m letting life do its thing and not putting too much pressure on myself. What needs to happen,…

    2018: A reflection of the the highs and lows

    The starting line of 2018 seems light years behind. Looking back, the past 12 months have been more intense than any rollercoaster I’ve ever been on – ups, downs, ups, downs, SURPRISE BITCH – A LOOP. I actually am the New Year’s resolution type of gal, but towards the end of 2017 I was still so jet lagged and caught up in the hustle and bustle, that I didn’t really get to making my list. Now, laying on my bed back home, cuddling my cute dog, I’m satisfied with how my resolution-less year has played out. However, I do want to put this out there, 2018 tested me and gave me the highest highs and the lowest lows I’ve ever had so far. I was contemplating if this post would be at least somewhat of an interesting read, but in the end I am a believer in sharing and celebrating…

    CELEBRATING SUMMER : GIRLS DATE NIGHT @BILL’S HOLBORN

    When I moved to London 2 years ago, I left almost all my friends from home behind. Fast forward, it’s my first summer here & I’m lucky enough to have some of my closest friends also move to the city for internships. Naturally, that means weekends are well spent catching up in the corner of a cosy restaurant with a french fry in one hand and a cocktail glass in the other. Last week I was kindly treated to a wonderful dinner at Bill’s Restaurant’s Holborn location doing exactly that. The setting was perfect for me & my friend, Simona, to discuss our intern lives, plans for the future & of course where & when are we going on another trip (the most important question of them all). We had a reservation for 7pm (so we wouldn’t be sweating our tits off, thank you London) and when we arrived we…

    21 THINGS I LEARNED AT 21!

    Exactly one week ago, on Monday the 21st,  I completed my 21nd loop around the sun and apart from stuffing my face with cake faster than you can say “make a wish”, drinking some snazzy cocktails and finally submitting my bachelor dissertation proposal (oh the glamorous life of a second year student), I also sat down and reflected on what I’ve learnt about this life thing so far and decided to share it with my little corner of the internet. So, I present you: Moving abroad is the most scary and rewarding thing you could do. Travel and explore as much as you can. Sleep is underrated. Being single in your 20s is a blessing in disguise. The incognito tab can be used for more than watching porn – cheap plane tickets! Not talking to/seeing your friends daily doesn’t mean they’re not your friends anymore. High school is probably not the…

    STOCKHOLM TRAVEL DIARY

    You never think a 6:00AM flight is a bad idea until you set your alarm to wake up at 2AM, or not go to bed at all. So, here we were, in our PJs, jamming out to old Disney musicals and downing another mug of coffee, waiting to head out to Stockholm… A little bit of a rewind – how did we even pick Stockholm? Well, the initial plan me and friend Simona had in mind was to go to Morocco, as we had found some really good flights. Moments before we bought our tickets, we realized the dates don’t work. We had to find another destination. Although we originally planned to soak up some sun, it seemed that plan was going to cost us dearly. Then Stockholm popped up, setting us back only 20 quid for the return trip. Sold. Visiting in early March meant around -2 degrees Celsius,…

    MUSEUM OF ICE-CREAM!!

    This is a #throwback kind of post, because it’s gloomy and rainy in London and I needed a reminder of sunny LA in December! If you’ve never heard about the Museum of Ice Cream, you must be living under a very well sheltered rock with no access to Instagram or Pinterest. It is currently located in LA, Miami, San Francisco and New York(I might be wrong?) and in a nutshell is one of those super trendy places that people buy tickets for months in advance and they’re *slightly* overpriced (29$). Nevertheless, we don’t have those in Europe, so when I heard that they’re extending their sale for tickets until December, I decided to venture out there during one of my last days in Los Angeles. MOIC is situated in the Arts District of LA, very close to Zinc cafe, so it’s a perfect weekend activity to combine with a nice…
