Goodbye Shadwell

When I first moved to London, I moved in to a tiny flat with my friends in Shadwell. The flat was small, really small, but we didn't care, we were in London! 

And then, about a few months after we moved in, we noticed some damp patches appearing on our ceiling. Before long we found ourselves living in the coldest, dampest, mouldiest flat I have ever seen. The landlord was slow to respond to our requests to solve this problem, the builder (his mate) who was sent round was useless, and we spent a lot of time living in a pretty grotty horrible flat.

MOSCOW - The Red Square

Back in February I went for a long weekend to Moscow with my housemate. I have to say that I didn't really expect much from this city break, but I had the most fantastic time. Moscow really surprised me with it's hidden beauty and history.

One of the most famous parts of the city is the Red Square. First of all, it is beautiful. If you are fan of architecture, I'm sure you'll love this place. A big open expanse of cobblestones surrounded by impressive buildings, the most beautiful of which in my opinion, is St. Basil's Cathedral.

LONDON - St. Dunstan in the East

London is a city full of surprises, one of which I discovered last Saturday. Hidden within the bustling city centre near Monument is an old, and rather beautiful Church. A little slice of serenity in the big city.

Long time, no see

It's been almost a year since I last blogged. Wow, that's quite a long time. And to be honest, I didn't really miss blogging either, it was taking up so much of my time and I found it really tough to keep to a schedule. It was a relief when I finally admitted to myself that it was ok to stop, and take a breath. I just didn't realise how long that break would be.

Recently I have started reading blogs again, and it made me miss mine.

So I'm back. I don't know how long for, I don't know how often I'll post, or what I'll even post about, but I'm back :)

Book Review: We Were Liars

image source: goodreads
We are the Liars.
We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury.
We are cracked and broken.
A story of love and romance.
A tale of tragedy.
Which are lies?
Which is truth?

Welcome 2015

Last year was particularly exciting and busy for me, unfortunately this meant that I started and finished the year with very few blog posts.

Firstly I finished university, which was very bitter sweet. I am proud of myself for working so hard and achieving a mathematics degree, and I have also made the most wonderful friends. In a bid to make sure we keep in touch (due to us being from different parts of England) we started the alphabet club.
