Life Update: I Moved To London

lifeupdate, whattodoinlondon, londonliving, livinginlondon

There has been a few changes in my life recently, so I thought I'd do a little 'life update' for y'all - if you came here for a fashion post you don't particularly care about this check back on Friday! - for those who do, keep reading...




1. I GOT A NEW JOB
While it might not be my dream job (who knows what that is) it got me out of my previous job which was extremely emotionally draining on me, but I won't dwell. With this job I've started to understand online writing that bit more and what working for a huge online daily deals website entails - can you guess where I work?? I've always put myself out there which is hard to do at 25, and made some amazing new friends who I've become close to incredibly quickly. It was time for a change and this new job was the thing to start those changes, taking me on to life update number two...

2. I MOVED TO LONDON
It's something I have wanted to do for a really long time, through the stresses of finding somewhere to live in two weeks when I got my job I'm finally here and, for the most of the time, am enjoying being here. The biggest downfall? My savings have taken a serious dip because you know, it's London and everything is ten times more expensive here but it's nice to gain back some independence after living back with my family for quite a while.

3. MY INSTAGRAM HIT 10K
While it seems like a long time coming, my Instagram finally hit that golden target of 10,000 followers which is completely insane to know that so many people give a shit about what I post and consequently write as a lot of my traffic for my blog comes from there! It's a really exciting time for me with my blog, things are starting to pick up with brands again - some more well known than others - and I've started to enjoy the writing again. For example, it's 7.45am and I got up especially early to write this unplanned post. As I'm now in London you'll hopefully see more than just outfit posts, you'll get a bit of culture as well - as long as I do that is.

4. I CHANGED MY HAIR...AGAIN
After trying so hard to keep up the blonde, it just wasn't happening! I was overusing purple shampoo and conditioner so my hair was verging on white, while that's a great look for some it's not for me and, who was I kidding? I'm a brunette through and through. Plus, at £70 a go, going to the hairdressers was a luxury I just couldn't afford to keep.

5. I'LL BE TURNING 26
And while it's completely terrifying that I'll be closer to 30 than 20, and I feel like I have't accomplished nearly as much as I set out to when I was younger, it's time to get over the fear. What better way to do that than getting another tattoo? I'm keeping the design quiet, partly as I don't quite know if it'll work yet but also as a surprise for you guys. I will be doing a tattoo post on here soon for those who are as interested in that subject as me!

Have a great Tuesday, like I said there's a new outfit post coming Friday so come back for that if that's more your thing.
