About Me


I’m a twenty something year old girl with big dreams and a considerably oversized bucket list!

Once I find a new passion I tend to dive in head first. Turns out I can’t just dabble in things, it’s all or nothing. So when I fell in love with travelling after backpacking through Europe, I knew I had to change my life and find a way to make travel a top priority. In 2012 I built up the courage to leave the comfort of home in Melbourne for a new life abroad in London and I haven’t looked back since.

When I’m not draining my bank account by planning holidays, I normally drain it in other ways like brunching (all the time), drinking a lot of coffee, probably drinking even more red wine, buying language courses in whatever language I decide to try and learn (and ultimately fail to learn) in any given year, and actively searching the world wide web for the perfect dog that I will one day adopt. Tomorrow One day.

Moving to London in July 2012 definitely tested me in all the ways – emotionally (rollercoaster), financially (also rollercoaster), physically (there’s a lot of stairs here). Before I moved abroad there was just so much to do in such a short space of time which is how the London New Girl blog was born. I made it my personal mission to share all my research and thoughts, to help others who are thinking about doing the same.

Almost 5 years on, I’m still living in London and still sharing (probably in too much detail) as I go. As well as the practical advice like ‘How to budget for a move‘, ‘How to find a job‘ or ‘How the NHS works‘, I also share all my travel stories and tips, occasionally indulging in something a little more personal like my Brexit woes, or why I need some ‘me time’.

Follow the London New Girl blog as I share my ideas, tips and adventures with you along the way.
