The Highlight Reel: London Living

SO. After putting it off for a good year or so, I’ve finally taken the step into the real world and got a big girl job (technically an internship, but still). I’ve been there for a month now and so far I’m loving it. I am, however, currently homeless and owe my life to my BFFs & various family members who are lending me their beds/rooms/flats and so on, for which I am SO grateful!

Doing Sundays right #primrosehill

Safe to say it’s been a whirlwind few weeks and I am hoping to get some real posts up soon about some of my adventures thus far, but in the meantime, here’s what’s been making the days fly by:

– Primrose Hill, the best and most aspirational people-watching spot of all (also good for a good old celeb spot and a chance to squeal over Henry Holland’s ridiculously cute pug, Peggy)

  • “Quiet nights” that have inevitably turned into ridiculous escapades in Dalston and Shoreditch
  • The most hysterical & perfect hungover Sunday last weekend. It was a day where everything was hilarious, and ended up with a sleepover for 4 with some of my best pals.
  • Friday nights (and indeed any night) on the Southbank. It’s so convenient from work that I have had two separate friend-dates and one real-boyfriend-date in the last couple of weeks. It’s always so buzzy and there is something very cool about hanging around in the shadow of the London Eye.
  • Time Out Magazine. Time Out Tuesdays are fast becoming my favourite days of the week!
  • How quiet Bermondsey station always is after the madness of Waterloo or London Bridge
  • Gavin Degraw, live in Kentish Town. He was GREAT.
  • All the reunions. After being so far away from most of my friends for all of last year, it has been SO nice to be able to meet them for a drink after work, or catch up on the weekend. Finally my huge FOMO can be cured!

This week I’m doing the commuting thing for a while so we’ll see how that goes, but I also have a couple of fun events planned and we are beginning the flat search in earnest so I’ll do my best to keep you all updated on my life goings-ons! What have you all been up to?

  1. Congratulations on all the good things coming your way! I’m very jealous that you saw Gavin Degraw! I’m the biggest One Tree Hill fan so I would have been screaming I Don’t Wanna Be haha. I hope commuting works out for you, rent is crazy expensive isn’t it?! Hope to hear from you soon, Hannah xo
