It’s been nearly 3 years since I moved from Birmingham to beautiful Edinburgh, and lately I’ve been reflecting a lot on how it’s changed me and my lifestyle. It was a huge culture shock, more than I had originally thought, but I think I finally feel more at home than ever despite being the kind of person that never likes to settle in one place, mentally and physically, for too long. I thought I’d do a list of 4 things that moving to Scotland changed in me or that I found interesting, which may be relatable for other ex-pats out there! (more…)
We’ve all had that moment when we stare hopelessly at a wardrobe crammed full of clothes, but have ‘nothing to wear’. I like to call it a Wardrobe Full Of Nothing. When this disheartening realisation occurs, one must clear out said closet. I wanted to show you some simple ways of disposing of unwanted clothes, rather than going for the not very sustainable ‘chucking them in the bin’ method!
What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word Birmingham?
Perhaps it’s the famous Selfridges building inspired by a Prada dress, the big dirty canal system, the old brass bull, or even the strong Brummie accent.
For me, Birmingham will always be associated with my childhood, my upbringing, and my family and friends.
But on a recent trip down south, a long walk around the city I used to call home brought new surprises in the way of unique street art.
