The past year hasn’t succumbed to much going out for me. Saving money to travel and intern abroad has taken its toll! Both by not having money to spend on events, or time to try new things due to work.
This is all about to change!
In less than two weeks I will officially be living in London, interning for 4 months and travelling around on weekends.
As my social hibernation comes to an end, I’d like to share just what I have in store for the first few weeks of my internship!
1. Afternoon Tea
Such a quintessential British experience! The first weekend of my internship, there is a tea-going experience at Bea’s of Bloomsbury planned for us interns. Fancy drinks, sandwiches and deserts are to be expected!
How delicious do those treats look?

2. Secret Gardens of London
Now, I know these may not actually be secret; but a lovely Vogue UK article alerted me of their presence. It’s always great to know the non touristy places, perfect for capturing special pictures or just enjoying some quiet in a busy city.

3. Cliffs of Moher | Ireland
A close friend of mine from university is randomly starting her Master’s program in Cork, Ireland when I’m starting my internship in London, England. What a perfect chance to get together and spend a weekend trip sight-seeing!
I’d love to see the Cliff’s of Moher, as the area looks stunning. There are various day packages that include transportation.
5. The British Museum
One classic tourist destination is the British Museum. I love walking through museums and galleries in general, so I’m expecting to have a great time in a place with so much culture!
You might catch me here more than once casually strolling along, or sitting on those fancy white steps, people-watching.
4. Networking Events
Always liking to be prepared, I scheduled different networking events related to beauty/fashion/PR into my calendar.
Eventbrite has been my main supply for these events! You can even track your events with their online RSVP page. It’s a great resource for different cities, wherever your location.
I hope I’ve inspired some of you to try new things and get out of your comfort zone! You never know who you might meet.
I mean . . .

If you know of any cool things to do in London, let me know! I’ll be living in Zone 1 this fall.
