I honestly never thought I’d be writing this post. Considering it was only a year ago that I quit my full-time fashion copywriting job to go freelance, so much has changed in that time.
Like most people who quit their 9-5, I’d become bored of the office life and felt unmotivated and depressed, well, pretty much every day.
It’s been two years since I lived in St. Kilda, the sunny seaside suburb of Melbourne, and lately I’ve been reminiscing about how perfect it is and how lucky I was to be there.
For some reason, at the time, I didn’t appreciate how amazing it was. Probably due a mix of being travel-weary and financially fucked. Yep, adventuring can be stressful sometimes.
Despite 2016 being well, a bit shit, it did have some pretty amazing moments too. I always find that no matter how bad things may seem, if you can manage to squeeze in some new experiences and do a bit of travelling, you’re reminded what life is really about.
Which for me, is having fun, creating memories you can be proud of and being around good people.
Oh, and food, obviously.
As you might remember from this post, I recently ventured up North to explore the Scottish Highlands and stay on the Isle of Skye.
It’s always been a bit of a ‘bucket list’ dream of mine as the landscapes are just so beautiful. Plus it’s really remote and peaceful, which is something I often crave living in London.
Last month, I finally ticked off a bucket list dream and went on a road trip through the Scottish Highlands.
After a bit of a hectic summer, I was in need of fresh air and nature, and the highlands definitely did not disappoint. Granted, it was FREEZING, but so so beautiful.
Wow, it’s been quite a while since my last post, but I’ve been doing that thing where you try and sort your life out. But I’m back now, with plans for more content and also…some exciting news.
A couple of my most-read travel posts have been turned into ‘article apps’ by the lovely people over at GPSMyCity.
I don’t know what’s happened lately, but I’m really craving the cold and looking forward to winter. Usually, I’m loving the hot weather, but right now, all I can think of is hot chocolate, fires and blankets.
And Baileys. Obviously.
I’ve heard (via my friend Pinterest) that the Scandi’s have a nice little word for this – ‘Hygge’ – and to be honest, I’m all for it.
