As I approach one month away from my home, I wanted to share a few of my favourite things about it with you all to add to your list of things to do in London .
This week I gave notice at my flat and at the end of the month I will be moving home, back in with my parents.
Considering I am closer to 30 than 25, and currently living with my boyfriend (P), this was not an easy decision to make. Even as I sent the email P asked me: “Are we crazy?”

Last week I got the last piece of furniture for my not-so-new flat: a coffee table. However as I looked around my flat I was still struggling for wall art ideas.

Without good Twitter retweet accounts, tweeting can sometimes feel like talking to a brick wall, with nobody liking or retweeting you. This can be so frustrating, especially when you’re trying to promote your blog – which you probably work really hard on.
