Tiered Stripe Dress and Nude Heels

Hi, lovely people,

I feel like this year Autumn sort of sneaked up on us. I came back from Latvia and a week later I had to put my warm coat and boots on. Do you think this year nature just looked at us, realised it's not really safe for us to enjoy the sunshine and instead of teasing us just went- "Eh, I might just end the Summer a month early this year..."?

You might say it is a poor opening to a blog post, talking about weather. Nevertheless, here I am - and I think I have earned the right to do so. This time of the year has always been very special to me as I have noted in multiple posts before. When I was younger, Autumn brought not only crisp air but school and being able to see friends again. In my early twenties it meant going back to Scotland for the university semester to begin. And two years ago it meant coming to London to start a new, scary, exciting chapter of my life.

I have a confession to make. I never thought much of London. I had visited twice before I moved here, however it never caught my heart the same way It had moved others. To me it was always New York that made me feel like that. And I'm not quite sure I will ever feel about London like I do about New York. When I graduated I really didn't want to move here, and I tried to avoid doing so for years      even though I knew for the ambition my size and the hunger to succeed in the industry London is probably the only city in the UK that could scratch the surface.

I am a strong believer in faith, and what is meant to be will be. As in - if something is intended for you, it will find its way to you. Like, those stories that you hear about two people who live on the same street their whole life not knowing of each others existence, only to meet and fall inlove on some holiday thousands of miles away. That's what I think London is for me. An unavoidable faith. A destiny I had to meet to grow and learn more about myself than I had all those years before. Level in the game of life I had to unlock. 

And, I have to say it is growing on me. If you'd ask me whether I'd want to live anywhere else at the moment, I'd have to say no. But equally, if you'd ask me to describe my favourite place in London, I'd have to say - " I have no idea...". And maybe that's because the city is so versatile and the more I get to know it, the more I realise that I don't really know much about it at all. However, I am very intrigued to find out more.

Guess that's why they say - "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life."

Always yours,
