When we took this photos, on a sunny morning in early April on the left bank, it felt like our adventures would never end. That month was the sweet spot of our three-month European tour. We settled into a routine that even included running two days a week, but still felt like we had time to do everything we wanted. Fast forward three months and I am scheduled to return to my day job this coming Tuesday. I know I’ve said it before, but it feels like I blinked and half a year went by.

But, much to my surprise, I have the chance to go on one last adventure before I return to my working life. It all started with a surprise email a week and a half ago. The email came in at what I can only describe as the most inopportune time; we were in the middle of meeting a contractor about redoing the floors in our new apartment when my phone began to vibrate. I expected the kind of email I usually get in the afternoons, a newsletter or an advertisement. Instead, I was asked to fly to New York.

And so, while you are reading this, I will be gallivanting around Manhattan with my bestie, hitting our favourite coffee shops and boutiques. And, let’s face it, trying not to overheat because New York in the summer is no joke. I expected to spend this week getting ready for my brother-in-law’s wedding. And reluctantly setting up my new office. That I get to spend it having one last adventure before my return to reality feels absolutely perfect. I can’t think of a better way to end these five amazing months. There is no doubt that I will be exhausted and jetlagged. But it will be worth it.

This isn’t really my last adventure, of course. But I have no travel plans until November, so I intend to savour every moment of this last minute holiday while I have the chance.

Join the List


  1. Yay! I’m so glad your last minute adventure brought you to Vancouver!! So happy to have clinked mimosa glasses with you, talked blog + fashion, plus how great is Martin?! Oh man, such a trooper, and aside from being horribly cold he did mention (on the way home) he had a lovely time! Hope your NYC exploring day is loads of fun love + I love this outfit and location. Let’s Skype soon!! xo

  2. That does sound like the perfect way to spend your last weekend before the return to work, which is never fun. Just as the beginning of summer always seems to sprawl out with endless possibilites, August always arrives with that dumbfoundedness that June and July are gone and those hopeful plans were never made or executed. Hope you had an amazing time in NYC, and I love this perfect grey denim look, which I will keep in mind when I’m ready to return to wearing denim.
