American Vs British English: Shopping Words!

Happy Sunday, guys! I spent my morning window shopping on Oxford Street (somehow managed to resist Topshop’s siren call), which inspired this video. London is a shopaholic’s heaven, from Bond Street, to markets, to vintage stores in Shoreditch, and there are a few key vocab words to know if you’re American. While both countries speak English, there are some key vocab differences when it comes to clothing and shopping. Check it out, so you can fill your bags and add to your London wardrobe with ease.

London Brunch in the Clouds – Weekend Vlog

While waxing poetically about London brunch spots isn’t new to this piece of the internet, I thought I’d share this week’s breakfast-but-better outing in vlog format instead of my typical written style. It was quite the special occasion taking us to the height of London’s beauty, so I thought a video more befitting its visual splendor. The food was good, but not amazing, so I don’t have too many food porn shots to share with you, just breathtaking ambiance. Plus you get to see me squirm and act extremely awkward on camera – so it’s a win-win!

London Vlog – Harrods, Camden Nights and Hangover Brunch

Happy Wednesday, friends! Welcome back to my almost weekly love letter to London via vlog. This past weekend was packed with attempted Christmas shopping in Knightsbridge, glorious sunsets, hipster nights in East London and #omgfoodporn hangover brunches. Follow me around town and enjoy my still very awkward public vlogging behavior. Thanks for watching and let me know if there are certain areas of London you’d like to see!

The Most SHOCKING Things About London

Moving halfway across the world or even just visiting there can often be terrifying. You’re exposed to a new culture, new social rules and an entirely new place, so you can sometimes feel totally out of sorts. I’ve lived in London a few months now, so I thought I’d share a few of the most shocking things I’ve encountered as an American. These also I think are generally helpful tips and observations if you are not from the UK and want to visit, study abroad or live here and want to temper your culture shock. I love London, so I don’t mean to insult anyone. Just want to be sure no one gets hit by a car, offends Londoners or lights their hotel room on fire! Thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe, as I regularly share videos about my move to London and life abroad.
