Happy Monday BoopTroop! I’m finally back to blogging again and wanted to share a little London life update with you in today’s blog post. As I mentioned in my previous post 5 Small Lifestyle Changes I’m Making in 2018, I’ve moved into a new flat here in London. Since I published that post in early January life has been crazy busy!
I made the move to London three years ago and I had stayed in the same flat since I moved here initially. At first I shared with one of my best friends until he moved away from London. After that I shared with a couple of other people but I’ve really wanted to be able to rent a flat on my own here in London eventually and that dream finally came true!
I found my perfect flat and I absolutely love it! I’ve moved from North London to Croydon and have been settling into my new flat for the past week. There’s still a lot of unpacking to be done and I can’t wait to make a visit to IKEA as soon as possible but I’m really enjoying making this flat my own.
I decided on Croydon because I usually work near London Bridge and the commute there is super easy! I also managed to find a modern two bedroom apartment within my budget which is what I had my sights set on. I wanted a spare room for when my family and friends come to visit from Ireland. Croydon is also really great for me to travel to Gatwick airport for when I am flying back home to Galway so it just seems like a great location for me to move to! I’ve been doing a bit of exploring this weekend and am pretty impressed with the shopping here, I’ve also scouted out a nail salon near where I live because #priorities. I can’t wait to finish getting everything I need for the flat and fully settling in here.
So basically January was ridiculously busy as I had to pack up all my stuff and arrange the move. Also as most of you know I work as an accountant and of course January is during busy season for us auditors. A lot of my colleagues thought I was crazy to be moving house during busy season but hey, I love a challenge! I was also working on a really intense project with a two week deadline for reporting and so when I moved house last Saturday I was straight back in the office all day Sunday.
I really feel like this is the best fresh start I needed here in London and I feel so happy with my new flat. I feel so motivated to get back to blogging and creating content and I can’t wait to set up a new dedicated blog space in my flat. Most of my friends here live in South London also and I really like living closer to everyone now.
Sooooo after a very busy January I’m really excited to be back here blogging and taking you guys along with me over on my social platforms. P.S. Make sure you’re following (Instagram, Twitter & Snapchat).
