First ever post!

Hello and welcome to anyone who has stumbled across my blog! I decided to start this blog after being inspired by my favourite bloggers whose posts keep me entertained and informed and who have weirdly come to feel like old friends (despite never having met or spoken to the authors!). The intention is for this to be a lifestyle blog with elements of travel, fashion, food and general day-to-day happenings.

A bit about me: I’m a twenty-something Brit living in Singapore. Originally from Cheshire, England, I’ve lived in China, Dubai and London and moved to Singapore in October 2013. The past year and a half has flown by – I love living in Singapore and the opportunities it affords to travel, experience different cultures and meet new and interesting people.

Having previously lived in China, I seemed to miss out the culture shock that some people experience when they first move to Singapore. For me, it was the best parts of China with all my home comforts added, no language barrier and sunshine most days. What’s not to like?! Oh, apart from the fact that I arrived during the rainy season, when you could pretty much set your clock by the daily afternoon showers. Even then, the rain wasn’t the cold drizzle that I was used to in London and I still love watching a tropical thunderstorm (as long as I’m undercover!), knowing that after the short shower comes the sunshine and slightly cooler temperatures.

Anyway, I digress… I’m currently writing this at my desk at work so better wrap things up.

Until next time!

  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging 🙂 you are so well travelled! How did you find living in Dubai? I’d be so intrigued to know what it’s like to live there – i’m only an hours flight away but I bet it’s a whole different ball game to Doha, as it’s so much bigger, more liberal and more advanced in so many ways! Singapore must be incredible too…I have colleagues from there who love it and my mum was born there (she always talks about going back someday!) I very much look forward to more of your posts 🙂


    • Thanks for stopping by, Holly 🙂

      I enjoyed living in Dubai, but I’d say it’s a lot different to living in Singapore. Dubai felt like an expat bubble whereas, whilst we do have a lot of expat friends here, there’s a lot more integration with the local population. I also love the amount of greenery there is in Singapore. Dubai was an exciting place to be though – the city changed so much just whilst we were there and I bet it’s the same in Doha at the moment!
