Welcome to London

London underground and outfit

I’m sorry for not being active in the last weeks. As you might know, I left Berlin for good and moved to London. Something that’s always been a dream of mine.

  • December 22nd: I sent out my job application
  • January 19th: Got accepted for the job
  • January 21st: Flew to London
  • January 21st: Viewed an apartment
  • January 24th: Signed my apartment contract
  • January 25th: First day at work
  • February 5th: Moved into the apartment

It all went by pretty fast and I was super lucky that everything turned out the way it did. It is really hard to find a landlord who allows you to bring a pet. Luckily my landlord was really understanding and allowed me to take my dog with me.

Which is also super complicated! You can’t fly to the UK with a pet and you can’t take the Eurostar. The only way to bring your pet to the UK is by car. Which brings me to my next problem. I am 23 and I have a German driving license. However, most car rental companies want you to be 25+ years or expect you to pay a huge amount of money.

But don’t worry – Lumos is coming here by the end of the month.

I will definitely be more active now. I will provide you guys with the whole “Welcome to London” package including:

  • An apartment tour
  • Things I wish I knew before moving here
  • My favourite places in London
  • What and where to eat in London
  • How to bring your dog to the UK

48 Hours in London

I was really excited to go on this trip, I had planned it for months. I’ve been to London before, this time was going to be my 10th time in that wonderful city. But this trip was something that I was especially excited about. I’m a huge NFL fan, I’ve been watching games for years, stayed up all night to see my team win and bought a ton of merchandise over the years. So planning my trip to London was something really special. My first American football game. 



We decided in February to go and see the Rams play the Cardinals in Twickenham stadium at the end of October. A good friend, as well as my cousin were gonna join me.

Since I live in Berlin and the airports there are really bad – sorry to say it, but it’s true – I went to Hamburg to catch my flight to London Heathrow there on Saturday morning. My flight was delayed by an hour due to the heavy wind in the London area. I normally would’ve taken the underground but because of the delay, I decided to take the Heathrow Express, which only takes 15 minutes from Heathrow to Paddington, which is right in the centre of London.

At Paddington, I met my friend, who shared the Airbnb with me. We stayed near Kings cross, which was perfect since it’s so close to the centre.

We spend the rest of the day shopping at Oxford Street, which is always really nice since there are so many shops that we don’t have in Germany. I got myself a sweater, as well as some Rosie for Autograph make up. I only travelled with carry-on so I didn’t have much space left in my suitcase.

The day after we went to get breakfast at a coffee shop before heading (yet again) to Oxford Street, this time I bought nothing and we ended up at a sports bar, where we stayed to watch premier league. In the afternoon we went to the Twickenham stadium to see the game. Sadly I wasn’t allowed to bring my camera and since it was dark I didn’t take good iPhone shots either.

The game was a lot of fun, even though the game wasn’t as thrilling as we expected it to be (the Rams won 33 – 00). It was freezing and I really wished I would’ve brought a scarf and gloves.

My flight back to Hamburg was at 3:30pm the next day, so I still had some time left to stroll around a little more. I went back to Oxford and Bond Street, bought some stuff at VS, had a snack and then went to the airport.

Even though it was a really short trip I still had lots of fun and I already miss this radiant city.

I decided to do my first ever outfit post. I do not consider myself a fashion blogger, or even a real blogger, but when I feel really good in an outfit I feel the need to share it on here.

We took these photos on the first day of fall. I just love this season so much, everything starts to get more cozy, the trees turn from green into golden brown and you can finally enjoy all the food and drinks that somehow is only limited to the cold seasons (I’m thinking about hot chocolate, pumpkin bread and all the delicious candy).

I found this dress at Zara, while I was there to buy the boots, which I saw on a previous shopping spree. About a week ago I found a bellsleved dress on Asos (I will probably also make a post with that dress) and now I’m obsessed with dresses, black tights and biker boots.
