Couple of weeks ago, my blogging buddy Chloe (New Girl in Toon) invited me along for dinner at The Cherry Tree Restaurant in Jesmond. We hadn’t seen each other in forever, so it was lovely to catch up!

I mentioned in my Downsizing My Life post last week, that I’m trying to minimise things that I own. On this journey one of the difficult things has been trying to find a balance between the life I want to have and cutting down the things involved in that life. For example, I enjoy cooking and baking; which also helps me to have healthy eating habits. However, this means I have various kinds of pots and pans, utensils, and kitchen gadgets.

If you follow me on Instagram (@aspiringlondoner), you know that I was travelling across Asia this summer. My first destination was Hong Kong, and I instantly fell in love! It’s an amazing city with a great mix of the old and new. There are influences from the old China dynasty to the new shiny western Hong Kong. It can be quite confusing knowing where to go when researching, so I’m going to share my top 5 Hong Kong must-see/do!

A few months ago, I stumbled upon a Ted Talk of ‘The Minimalists’ called ‘A rich life with less stuff’. It changed my life. I am not even remotely exaggerating when I say that. I started to declutter in 2015, although I got rid of a lot of stuff – it wasn’t enough. I still kept bringing stuff into my home so I never really decluttered.

Skincare is uber expensive these days. I sometimes cannot believe the prices of some of the products YouTubers talk about! £40 is no longer considered expensive for a face oil….! When I drop that kind of dosh on a product, I’d have to starve myself for a while. Anyway I’ve been trying out some products people have recommended or I’ve seen around the shops to see how they perform. I’ve found some gems that I think will stop me looking for anything else for quite some time (although being a skincare junkie, it’s hard to be loyal!).
