I get it - you hate me. It's understandable though, not being around for almost a good 2 months can do that. As you guys know, or may not know, I recently made the move to study in the States and as of August 18th I've been living in Long Beach, California. So as you can imagine I've been super busy adjusting, crying and studying but I'm on course now so I'm giving you some love and some updates.
I had an amazing time in New York and miss is dearly and completely get why people love it so much. I've never been in an environment, maybe apart from London, where my interests are so expertly catered for. There was no shortage of kitsch vintage stores in the Lower East Side, no shortage of tailors (literally they were on every corner, I don't think Google Maps knew what to do with them all) and certainly no shortage of places to drink. It's funny to me that after all those years I've spent in front of the computer reading blogs and looking at pictures and wanting to be in those places and finally I was there. I visited Self Edge which was an experience in itself and took cheeky picture of the sign to remember it and it came out wonderfully. I got pieces tailored on Orchard Street opposite Epaulet, a place that got my heart racing and made my bank account sweat like never before. I walked across the Williamsburg Bridge, hung out in Williamsburg, hung out in Harlem doing hoodrat shit. I worked on my photography which is always great because you can never be too good of a photographer. I had so many experiences that'll stay with me for a long time.
This blog will be a reflection of those experiences and my new lease on life - New York really brought me to life. I'll be back shortly, I promise, I just want to make sure that what I'm putting on here is in line with what I love and not just because it popped up in my inbox, I'm in a place now where I'm improving my skills and making moves and getting recognition for what I've worked on for more than a year now and I think it's time to take my blog and make it into something special.
I hope you guys will stick around for the journey.
