The speed at which this year is flying past is almost scary! I haven't done that many exciting things during this past week, as I have been working non-stop and trying to make as much headway as possible on a couple of ongoing projects, but I did find the time for a lovely lunch with a dear friend of mine at The Wro in West Kirby. It was so nice to sit outside on the sunny terrace and catch up on all our gossip over some delicious food and wine! Style wise, it has been so hot that I have been wearing my go-to outfit of a maxi dress most days! The outfit below is the one I wore out to lunch. I am so glad that I have met more people now in my area and I feel so lucky to go out and have lunch with a friend.
I feel as though I am settling in more and more in the town where I am living, I only moved here last November and it was a really big change for me and I cannot lie, it has been lonely and very difficult to settle in at times.
One tip that I would suggest when you move to a new place where you do not know anybody, is to join as many things as possible in order to meet people, such as language lessons, fitness classes or book groups. These are a great way to meet people and to get used to the local area. It can be daunting to live in a new place, and there is no overnight solution to how lonely it can feel. All I would suggest is to stick with it because things do improve and eventually you will start to feel more at home. It is exactly the same when moving away to university, I would suggest joining as many clubs and societies as possible as these are a great way to meet people at uni.
Maxi dress and handbag-Primark.
Fresh faced make up of the day. I love this triangle necklace I got from Primark!
Lunch with my dear friend at The Wro bar in West Kirby. She had a bacon and mozzarella panini, I had a tuna melt jacket potato. The food was delicious as always, and so was the chilled Pinot Grigio we had with it!
Coffee and blogging.
I love summer, maxi dresses and aviators all day everyday!
Essentials of the day: Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino
Zara Nuit Perfume (I love this perfume!)
Collection Lipgloss in 'Prom Queen'
Topshop Cream Blush in 'Neon Rose'
I love these new Skullcandy Uprock headphones that I got recently. They sound and look amazing but they only cost £22.
A breathtaking sunset recently, over the Marine Lake at West Kirby.

Change is good but when challenges come head on, it is how we handle it during the transition that will determine how well things will go. You seem to be handling things very well and i can relate. This is coming from someone who has moved more than she vacays :)). Good luck and best wishes in all your projects.ReplyDelete

I totally agree about getting involved with different groups to meet new people in a city. Once you become an adult and are done with school it's hard to meet new people outside the workplace and those were great suggestions.ReplyDelete
