Hi, lovely people,

I would never think I would say this, but as my room is filled with with the scent of rain and pumpkin spice candles, I am overjoyed that the never ending London summer has left us for good. After rain the dust settles and the air is fresh again (as fresh as it can be around this corner of the woods). I've always thought the city is a great place to hide, but the country is the best place to escape to. Especially this time of the year - I miss being able to walk through the woods, undisturbed by the outside, left alone. 

After 6 years living here I rarely get home sick, I miss my family and my people constantly, but the place, the environment I called home for the first 19 years of my life I hardly ever yearn for. And if I do, these feelings are usually brought up by the people still occupying these places.

Hi friends,

As much as I enjoy travelling and discovering new places, I am very much a home comforts kind of a gal. Especially, this time of the year when we see less of the sun, there is a chill in the air and you are required to wear your warm socks to avoid the ever so annoying cold toes. Most of the people will do their big house clean in Spring, I tend to do mine in Autumn. I like to prepare my home for those cold, cozy nights spent on the couch with a cup of tea and 2nd pack of biscuits going while watching re-runs of Gilmore Girls. I like to know, that after the hustle and bustle of the city, I have my own safe space, where I can re-charge, re-center and face the next day again.

Hi friends,

Fashion week has come and gone in a heartbeat. Never having experienced London fashion week, I was extremely excited. I had thought about it for some time, planning what I will wear and see, drawing from memories of times in New York and Riga. To me, it's not always really about the fashion, it's more to do with people, watching people who attend shows and events, the way they behave, what they wear, what is their purpose within it.

As soon as you realise that it is one big show, which you are spectating, it becomes easier. I remember a time when fashion events would stress me to the point of anxiety, as I wasn't sure how to act or behave. Soon I had an epiphany that much like life, no one really has a clue.

Hi friends,

With only 3 months of the year left, I am again trying to understand where has the time gone. If I look back where I was in this exact moment a year ago, it almost feels like a whole lifetime has went by. This year has been a sprint, a marathon length sprint. Not an easy one, but a rewarding one most definitely. 

I can officially now say I have lived in this little town called London exactly a month to the day. And with each day passing it feels more like home. Don't get me wrong, I have only explored maybe 4% of what it has to give, and not for the lack of trying. However, I am proud to say that rush hour tube does not scare me anymore, and I have experienced my first unexpected butt grab by a stranger, and awkward "almost fall" on a crowd of random people while prioritising switching a song over holding on before the tube goes on.
