How is it already 2013? Last thing I remember, it was 1999 and I was making up dances to every song on Britneys Spears new album. How time flies…

Well my holiday hiatus is sadly officially over.  Time at home has been great, having nothing to do has been great. but after 3 weeks of doing nothing I’m starting to go a little crazy over here and need something more than getting dressed on my to-do list. I’m ready to get this new year started! Its going to be a good year full of exciting things. 2012 was pretty good but it wont be as good as 2013 will be.

2013 will be filled with travel. Did I mention that I am going on a study abroad to LONDON this spring?! I’m pretty dang excited about it. Ever since I was little the goal of “Travel the world” has been on every list I make and finally it’s becoming a reality. Plus it has always been a dream to live in London. So you can say that I will be on cloud nine the whole time I’m over there.

I’m still working on my goals for this year. Lots of personal things I want to accomplish and professional/academic things I want to accomplish as well. I’m excited for the future and what it holds for me, but also pretty dang scared. Which makes this whole thing that much more exciting.

Happy New Year to all of you!

  1. Love your outfit. Congrats on the study in London. We know you will have an AWESOME time. . . .and think of all the fun outfits and pcitures to share!

  2. That’s so exciting! I studied abroad in London in the spring of 2010 and it’s one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Make sure you spend every free moment you have exploring – I was there three months and still wish I had done more. Some of my favorite places (for shopping that is…the museums/historical/royal places I’m sure you’re already planning to hit) were the Covent Garden area (the market and the surrounding streets – Neal Street in particular) and the Greenwich Market (I went to a lot of the famous markets in London, but Greenwich was one of my faves).

    I’m sure it’ll be a great experience. You should blog about it some while you’re there! :)


  3. Addendum to the last post: There’s a vintage store in the Covent Garden area off of the street I mentioned in the last post called Rokit. It’s a pretty cool little store. There are TONS of vintage shops in London, though, so I’m sure you’ll find your own gems. The Stables Market section of Camden Market is also a cool place to explore.

    • Thanks Maggie! I have started making a list of things/place I wanted to do and visit during my free time and will definitely been adding these things to the list!

  4. I live in London and can highly recommend the area around Brick Lane for fabulous vintage clothes stores. It’s also close to Spitalfields Market which is brilliant. Finally, on the corner of Bishopsgate, there’s a great place for a delicious brunch: http://www.bishopsgatekitchen.com/menus-bg.

    The area around Covent Garden is also great for shopping, Mexican food at Wahaca and frozen yogurt! You can get standing tickets at the Royal Opera House for £10 if opera/ballet is your thing.

    Hope you have a fantastic time in London!

    • Wow! Thank you so much for the recommendations! Bishops Gates Kitchen looks delicious and will definitely have to try it out!
