I’ve had a few funny comments on both my blog and youtube channel lately. Comments saying “I feel sorry you had to move to France” or “I can’t believe you moved there” or “Ken is lucky he has a wife that was willing to leave everything to move to France”. Even when I called to cancel some of my services back home, they would ask why I was cancelling and I would explain that I was leaving the country – one of the companies actually said “oh, I’m so sorry that’s happening to you”
WHHHAATTT?!?! I’m confused.
I some way, I can understand where these people are coming from. Of course selling everything you own, spending your newlywed year in limbo, not having a real home for years to come, leaving our family, leaving my job I loved – isn’t easy. But it is all a trade for a life that not everyone gets to experience! For the most part, when Ken and I read these comments – it gives us a good giggle! Who wouldn’t want to set out on an amazing adventure across the world?? Yes, it isn’t always easy but life isn’t nearly as exciting if you stick with what’s easy – especially when a huge adventure presents itself on a golden plater in front of you. You can either say “nah, I’ll stick with what I know” or YOU TAKE IT!
We don’t have kids, pets or own a house – so it was a pretty easy decision for us to take it.
But I’m curious – how many of you would have jumped at the opportunity we are in?! Or would you pass it up and stick with what you know?

Anyways, getting into the photos of the post! Ken and I recently snagged a spot at The Hoxton Hotel. Ken had wanted to stay at a Hoxton for quite sometime now, so when we stumbled across a flash sale – we grabbed it. If you’ve ever considered staying here, you should go for it! It really was such a beautiful hotel. Both Ken and I said it reminded us so much being back in London. It has a very modern, stylish and casual style to it. We actually booked a room called “the shoe box” but ended up getting an update to a slightly larger room. It was beautiful! It has a very vintage masculine style but warm and cozy feel to it.
We didn’t have any big plans for the day, but we decided to head out to get a few blog photos, pay a visit to Apple and then find some wine 🙂

While Ken checked us in, I snapped a few pictures of the reception and little nooks around the hotel – it’s too pretty not to! I’m sure they have a lot of snap happy people in there all the time.
These blue velvet chairs were one of my favourite style pieces in the place. The rich colour, stitching and solid golden base – I was in love!
We did also have dinner at their restaurant. Neither of us were particularly thrilled with our meals. These scallops were the best part of the meal.
Please do leave a comment below about your thoughts on making the leap like we did!
I’d love to hear from you!
We also vlogged our trip to the Hoxton (in addition to the whole week leading up to it).
