Four months. Well that’s flown! I thought for today’s post it would be nice to share a little update on what I have been up to in London since moving here at the beginning of February. I have also included some tourist style photos I took while wandering around London recently.
In my last London update post I mentioned I was doing a lot of travel with work and if you follow me on Periscope (BoopFashionista) you will know that this hasn’t changed. In particular I was travelling to York every week for client work and the commute was definitely tough. I’ve also been working really long hours as I had some big client deadlines last week so it was pretty busy. I have a client trip next month to India which I am so excited for! I have never been before so if any of you have tips for travelling to India please do share them with me in the comments below.
I now blog every day Monday to Friday with a video at the weekend and Weekly Vlogs. I consider myself to be a full-time blogger and pretty much spend every weekend working on my blog. Since moving to London I’ve had some amazing opportunties to work with UK brands including American Eagle UK, Simply Be, George at Asda, John Lewis, Joshua James Jewellery, House of Fraser and much more. I also visited the Pinterest UK offices for their bloggers workshop which was super useful. I started to use Periscope and I’m actually periscoping right now while blogging (comment down below if any of you seen that broadcast).
Perhaps my most exciting blogging moment took place since moving here…I won the 2015 Online Marketing in Galway award for Best Blog. This was beyond exciting for me and I will always remember the moment I walked on to the stage in my home-city and accepted the award. Definitely a big highlight!!
I’ve been working so much more on YouTube lately and my video content has really improved significantly since moving here. I post a fashion/beauty video every weekend so there’s always something to watch. If you haven’t yet subscribed I’d really love if you could head over the the Bec Boop YouTube channel and click the little subscribe button 🙂
I’ve also got to attend some awesome events here in London over the last few months. Most recently I attended the launch of new London Lifestyle label Bowery & Fourth with Milli Millu London. A couple of weeks ago I was invited as a guest of Big Deal Clothing to attend the Total Uprawr alternative night out here in London.
I still try and go home to Ireland as much as possible, mostly because my dog Kingsley is still there and this breaks my heart. I hope to one day be able to bring him over here. There really is nothing in the world like a dog’s company 🙂 I’ve also got a really great excuse to visit Ireland regularly for my Invisalign check-ups at David McConville Orthodontics in Sligo.
I am really looking forward to my first Summer in London. I’m hoping my family will get a chance to visit and I can show them around here. I’m going to see Taylor Swift play live in Hyde Park at the end of June (ahhhhh!) with Stephanie. I’ve also got the work trip to India to plan for. Of course it also goes without saying that I will be home for the Galway Races. I’ll be Vlogging every day of the races this year so I cannot wait for that. Outfit planning is already in progress…believe.
So….what have you been up to recently?
