London bound.

Yesterday I grew up...a few years too late, but I did it. I boarded the train at 7am promptly and headed to London on my own for the first time. I instantly felt the 'travellers bug'. There is no better feeling than having a train ticket and the whole world at your feet. I finally felt like the independent, soul searching woman that I should be.

You may be thinking, this is not a big deal? The truth is, I had an extremely bad fear of travelling when I was younger.  I don't know where the fear derived from, but it was the vein of my life. I would often have surreal panic attacks and feel insanely nauseous within two seconds of hitting a trains platform. An utterly strange occurrence was when I got too scared of going to my ex boyfriend's house alone. I can't explain the feeling, it just happened.

One day I woke up and realised I had to conquer this fear, so I booked a train to a nearby city called Leeds. I hesitantly clambered on to the train shaking like a leaf, I handed the conductor my ticket and when I reached my location, I felt the biggest sense of achievement in my life, heck - my GCSE results felt less significant than this.

Pass forward a few weeks and here I am, home from a very long, yet amazing day in London after spending the day with a national magazine known as 'Reveal'.  Dressed to kill with my little red outfit and stiletto heels, I  felt confident and that I could actually hack this whole scenario. I met lots of fabulous people who work for the magazine and two incredibly inspirational women that were also the focus of the photoshoot I attended. The article will focus on three people who have lead different diet plans to lose a substantial amount of weight and hey, I'm one of them. The day was absolutely perfect and I would happily do it all over again. 

The lesson I learnt :

Live for the moment and over your fears, because you cannot predict the future and you do not know what exciting opportunities the  future may bring.




  1. Well done on conquering your fear! Dressing like that you must have turned a few heads, you look gorgeous. x
