Why I can never live in London

Why I can never live in London

I remember how I always wanted to live in London. Growing up, I spent most of my summer holidays in East London. And it was great for me back then. I was young and free, and found the city fun. There were no bills to pay. All I had to bother about was my shopping money for clothes and shoes to take back home. I had zero responsibility. But years later, after I have grown up a little and my family moved out of London into Essex, I discovered why I can never live in London. However, when I first started blogging, I thought I had to live in London to be successful. Most of the bloggers I followed then were based in London. So I thought I had to be living in a city to make it BIG as a blogger. I was eager to get fashion week invites, meet London-based PRs, and get into the swing of things. Thankfully, I got the right information and saw the light. I didn’t need London or any city to make my blog successful. Now don’t get me wrong, London...

Ways in which your cat might be showing love to you

When it comes to overtly showing love to your owner, dogs top the charts.

Though cats may not be as overt and expressive as dogs when it comes to showing affection towards the owner, they surely do have their own ways of expressing love. These are tiny cute ways in which a cat would show how much it loves you from their actions. Cat owners often fail to identify the little ways in which their cats show...
How I survived culture shock in England

How I survived culture shock in England

I still remember how I struggled with culture shock in England when I relocated several years ago. It was tough for the first few months, but then I got over it. I had to anyway. Prior to my moving to England finally, I had been visiting on a yearly basis so I was familiar with the country and its culture to a certain extent. But visiting a country regularly and relocating fully are 2 very different things, as I came to understand. Culture shock affects everyone in different ways. It does not matter whether they don’t travel so often or they are regular travellers. I relocated finally to England in 2008. There was a master degree I had interest in at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol, and so I enrolled. Which is how I got here. Bristol is an amazing city. I had a lovely time studying there, and I really do miss the city. This year marks my tenth anniversary as a UK resident, which is why I felt the need to write...
