A blog about making the most of living in London, on a shoe string
20 something year old British student living in London and Paris. Loves music, theatre, new places, fashion, art, friends, laughter and pandas.
I come from a small town by the sea, I always miss that sea air, but living in the big city is what its all about...for now!
I've not yet worked out how to tag, categorise, or take artsy bloggy photos, but, I'm getting there.
If you need me call me, or maybe just email...email@example.com
