January can be a sad little month.
One filled with the realisation that woman cannot live on cheeseboards and chocolate alone (cue hot-footing it to the gym to burn off the post-Christmas indulges), a month that is decidedly soggy weather-wise and one where the bank balance is deflated.
But it can also mark new beginnings. I must admit I’ve been a bad little blogger this month. The last you heard from me was in 2015! But I’ve had other things taking precedence in the last few weeks and almost 18 months to the day since I wrote this post about moving to the big smoke I’m writing once again about moving on to pastures new. I’m leaving the bright lights of the big city and moving to Birmingham to take up the news editor role at a press agency. I’m very sad to be leaving my lovely work colleagues and friends behind but the time was right for me to move on.
Many a weekend this January has been spent flat-hunting and I finally bagged a beaut (pics to come!)
Last Saturday I paid a farewell visit to Wimbledon Village and instead of picking up practical things like boxes and bleach (for packing/to give the place a deep clean before I depart) I bought a vintage cape and another novelty handbag. Definitely got my priorities right.
ANOTHER #novelty bag Helen? Yes indeedy! Been eyeing this beaut up for weeks and finally bought it. 😍 #noveltybag #bag #purse #noveltypurse #space #rocket #space #sorrynotsorry A photo posted by Helen Le Caplain (@hlecaplain) on
Sunday was meant to be the day I got my act together and start packing. I did manage to sort four boxes out but not before spending the large part of the day bingeing on Netflix and eating toast.
I’ll be writing much more regularly from mid-February onwards, so make sure you keep checking in to see my latest finds, outfits and Brummy-based musings.
