I’m back from my blogging break!

Passport in hand

Why, hello there! It’s been a while. Did you change your hair? It looks great.

For the past month I’ve taken an active break from blogging, spending my time travelling in the UK and USA for pleasure and Europe for work, focusing on family and friends and just relaxing in my spare time. It was a fantastic month, and with a whole new batch of beauty goodies in hand (pictures and reviews to come!) and photos to share, I’m excited to get back to writing.

Here are some of the highlights from Instagram…

First up, Cannes! I went to the film festival for a client event with work, where we celebrated a product launch. It was great to spend a couple days in a sunnier clime, working by the seaside and practicing my French.

London Town

Closer to home I’ve been having a great time enjoying the start of summer here in London. It’s been clear and warm lately, so every opportunity I’ve had I’ve been outside wandering around the city. Brick Lane, Hoxton, Shoreditch, Old Street, Camden, Angel, Soho – it feels great stretching my legs, catching up with friends for brunches and after work drinks and just taking in the sites like I did when I first moved here. There really is something special about living in this city!

USA holiday

For the first time since I moved to London nearly 5 years ago, I was able to get back to the USA for my mother’s birthday and we celebrated by going to Cape Cod for a few (rainy!) days and eating lots of lobster. But I didn’t go just for the Cape Cod trip – Jeff came with me, and for two weeks we explored Massachusetts’ south coast & Rhode Island’s, beaches, restaurants and entertainment – including a Pawsox game!

Of course, no trip to the USA would be complete without American food, which is a good thing because we ate so much of it! Hot dogs, hamburgers, s’mores flavoured Oreos (“S’moreos”!) and oh, so much New England lobster – and coffees to battle the jet lag. If you have a trip to New England planned, give a shout because I’ve got plenty of recommendations!

While I was in the USA it was also my 5 year Simmons College graduation, so Jeff and I drove up to Boston to catch up with many of my uni friends. We strolled around the South End, walked part of the Freedom Trail by Faneuil Hall, enjoyed a Fenway Park tour and went for pints at local pubs. I forgot how much I loved living in Boston, and if I ever moved back I think I’d love to live in a South End brownstone! (I used to live in Fenway, and later Mission Hill. Both great places with so many happy memories.)

And those are the highlights! *stretches arms* Ah, I’ve missed blogging, and I’m so glad to be back.

How have you been? What have you been up to lately?
