Moving Abroad: The Good, the Bad, and the Terrifying – Letter From The Editor

Moving Abroad: The Good, the Bad, and the Terrifying – Letter From The Editor

Moving abroad is terrifying. It’s isolating and it’s hard. While I’ve been lucky to have had a fairly smooth transition as far as finding work, and being able to stay in my friends’ absolutely lovely house in Battersea; and while it’s so easy to take a million beautiful photos of this city and fill instagram and Facebook with celebratory updates, in real life I’ve been ridden with a sometimes crippling anxiety since the moment my plane touched down at Gatwick.

REGRAM TO WIN: Travel Sleep Mask From The Sleepy Cottage

If there’s one necessity in any wanderluster’s carry-on luggage… it’s a sleep mask. Whether in the air or on the ground, that beauty rest is important! While they’re pretty easy to find – why settle for a standard solid colour when you could step up your style factor with something a touch more glam? When we discovered these handmade gems from Sleepy Cottage we fell instantly in love. We first swooned over the fabulous Breakfast at Tiffany’s style mask with it’s impossibly lovely embroidered lashes: But browsing designer Sabrina’s Etsy shop, we discovered several stunning options – even some with a travel theme, especially for gals with a passion for all things Parisian:   When we reached out to see if The Sleepy Cottage and She Sees The World could partner up for a giveaway, not only were we thrilled to discover that Sabrina loved the idea, but also that she was eager to try out a new travel design just for us! She didn’t let us know exactly what it was, so we waited eagerly for the mail. Just in time for our trip to New York City (on a 12 hour, overnight bus ride!) it arrived: We are pleased to announce that we will be giving away an awesome Not All Who Wander Are Lost sleep mask (this design isn’t even available in the Sleepy Cottage store yet!) in a Regram to Win contest via instagram.

My Toronto – She Sees The World City Guide

My Toronto – She Sees The World City Guide

With only two weeks left in this fair freezing city of Toronto, I thought it was time to take note of the places and spaces that have become my spots over the decade I’ve called this collection of streets and buildings and people home. While I have been anxious to leave it for some time, there are many reasons I’ve lived here for so long. The city is vibrant, exciting, and filled to the brim with wonderful people that are up to wonderful things. There’s nowhere else in Canada I’d rather be, and despite my excitement and eagerness to discover all that London has to offer, a piece of me will always belong to TO.
