Hey guys! Sorry for the brief hiatus, but I have to say I’ve been quite busy (and lazy) lately.
So first of all, yes! I moved back to London, finally! And it feels so good. I really missed this place. So, after settling down (and spending all my savings in furnitures for my new place, damn) and getting used to my new job, I finally found some time to go back to explore the city and its wonders. And of course… I needed to write a blog post about it!
So, few days ago I took a train on the Piccadilly line and got off at Hammersmith, Zone 2. Nice place, but the bus stop I needed was closed. Bummer.
Me and my friend (whom I forced to join me the night before) had a nice, long walk. Crossed the Thames river on a bridge, and we got to the bus stop.

Hey guys! As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a short hiatus since the end of november, due to my moving to London and many many trips to Milan to see my family and friends.
My last trip to Milan was actually on Christmas’eve, right to celebrate all together.
And I have to say this Christmas has been very kind and generous with me, in particular my loved ones blessed me with tons of gifts I didn’t expect at all!
Clothes, books, charms, earrings, scented candles, hair care products, delicious food and of course a big dose of love – these were my Christmas presents!
I’m gonna do some reviews on the blog for you next week, after all the celebrations!
And you? What did you receive this year from Santa?
Either you’ve been good or naughty, I wish you all the best and a Happy New Year.
– aka that time I travelled to the UK and decided to stay.
All my friends ask me how I did it. I’ve always been that kind of girl that does crazy things, but something like moving to another country? Not at all. I travelled a lot, that’s true, but always in safety and comfort without taking a risk. So, probably people that knew me started to think: “how the hell did a girl like her do something like that?”
Many others are just tired of their routines and want a big change to shock their lives and see what they are capable of.
So… I decided to share my experience in the shape of a “to do list” for anyone that would like to make the same experience, step by step.
