♫♪ Eliza Doolittle – Pack Up

It’s finally feeling as if things are in order. I’ve developed a routine that I’ve gone through twice now and I’m a bit more comfortable with my day-to-day activities and commutes. When you’re in a new place it’s easy to see your goals, the end results you’re hoping to achieve because quite honestly you’re in that place to do just those things. To achieve. To grow.

But with dreaming, working and focusing, comes your personal life. Time for yourself and for others. I’ve been lucky to have some incredible friends and blog readers who have come out from great distances to see me. We’ve perused Notting Hill, chatted over pancakes, enjoyed cocktails under the sun

But in the midst of it all, I do sometimes feel a bit alone. I guess that comes with the territory of moving to a new city, a big city really. And so when someone lets you down, you feel as if your entire world is crumbling. I will admit that I’ve been just keeping myself so busy to pretend as if I’m not alone in this game and the fatigue is catching up to me.

And so this weekend, I’m exchanging work for play and having a friend in town. We will lunch and brunch, we will drink and shop, it will be a purely girls weekend. Hope this weekend, wherever you are, is as beautiful as you… xo, -S.

  • Sad to hear you’re feeling lonely, Supal 🙁 But I’m sure that will pass as you settle in some more. It definitely did for me. And you know, you always have a friend in the Lake District when you need one.

    Hope you enjoy your girly weekend! xx


    • I think it comes with the territory… I didn’t just move cities, I moved countries, am I right? And yes, I plan on making a trip, don’t you worry! x

      • Yes, it definitely goes with the territory. Moving countries is tough. But excited to hear you’ll be making a trip up north sometime soon! 🙂 xx

    What beautiful photos, Supal! I am so impressed by your bravery in moving to London. My best wishes to you for this weekend and beyond!

  • Thanks for the link love darling 🙂 And I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling lonely. I think it comes with the territory of moving to a brand new place. I guarantee it will pass and London will feel like home in no time!

    • Had to share it of course since I’m on the short list 🙂 It’s starting to become a city I’m more and more familiar with everyday, so it is definitely help with the “loneliness” feel 🙂 x

  • That’s a great idea Supal! I wish you’re having a beautiful time!
    This is how I felt when I left home for university! I was all alone for some days, before starting lessons! But as the days went by, I met new people! So will you! 🙂 <3

    • Ah I’m glad we’re able to relate! But after this weekend, I really do think I’m finding my ground 🙂 x

    Such gorgeous photos, Supal! Thanks for sharing. I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling a bit lonely. But I can completely relate. Moving to a new country isn’t easy. But just embrace it for the adventure that it is! I find exploring makes things a bit easier and with your friendly personality, I’m sure you’ll make some wonderful new friends soon. Enjoy your girly weekend!


    • Thank you so much, Donna! And your advice is spot on! Embracing it for the adventure that it is is a great outlook 🙂 PS – planning on emailing you back later this week… just been swamped! x

  • Even though you may be feeling lonely, please know that you are not! You have friends and friendly people around who will help you adapt to this enormous change. Your weekend sounds like so much fun – enjoy every minute of it! x

    • Haha of course I have all of you! I think it’s just hard when it’s a BIG city and we’re all just a single person among a crowd. I’m so used to people being directly next to me… small cities and towns. But it is all in the same so exciting! PS – hope you were pleasantly surprised with the pictures above… especially two of them 🙂 x

      • Oh yes, thank you so much for featuring me here – I’m SO flattered! What a great surprise! I didn’t even realise you were taking pictures of me, sneaky! 😉 x

  • Lovely photographs. It is scary moving to a new city but I am sure you will settle in soon and make some new friends! xo
