Missing You, CBCWLA.

Can you believe it? So much time has already passed and we’re already into May. It’s crazy that the last blog post I wrote, even before my site went down, was last year. At that time, I’d just left my London home and moved to LA. Now, I’m writing this from my new room in New York City.

A couple of months ago, my company asked me to relocate to NYC. It’s not a place I’ve ever wanted to be and honestly, I fell in love with my home and church in Santa Monica so I didn’t want to move. However, I know it’s where God is calling me through one miracle after another, and that’s enough for me to follow.

As of Monday I now live in NYC. In my mind, I’ll be here for 6 months and then I’ll return to LA, but my plans often aren’t God’s plans for me, so we will see :) Who knows, I might love it here and never want to return (so far, that’s not the case. It’s pouring outside and the city is as smelly and dirty as I imagined it to be) so there’s always an option to stay.

It really was an awesome 9 months in LA though! I realised I stopped blogging after my break up with Jason – 8 months ago now – because life happened. God led me to the church into which I would eventually settle, surrounded me with brothers and sisters and seekers to love and serve, and meet some of the best friends I’ve ever had. It was a wonderful life… it became a comfortable life… I stopped relying on Him, I became complacent. Thankfully He wasn’t finished with me.

That’s why I’m here today. I hope to find what God wants from me in this city. It’s been an amazing journey thus far. Join me for the next leg?

In the mean time, let me share a few more highlights from my time in LA – or more specifically, my church, CBCWLA. View Full Post

Early Birthday Celebrations: Hakkasan!

Goood morning! Today is a special day. For me, anyway. Becauuuuseeee… it’s my birthday! Today I am officially turning quarter of a century years old oh my gosh that is terrifying 21, yay me! And I will continue to turn 21 again every year for the foreseeable future. Nevermind that I am no longer being ID’d when purchasing alcohol.

My bf’s bday is also in April but as we wouldn’t be able to see each other then, he paid me a visit last week. We decided to celebrate our birthdays in advance so I had two special meals planned, the first of which was the one and only Michelin Starred Hakkasan.

I will say this right now: you should not read this post if you are hungry. You are about to be bombarded with foodporn pics that will have you wanting to lick the screen. If you have not eaten yet, I highly recommend getting something to nibble at right now. If your tummy is already satisfied, feel free to read on. Regardless, you will probably end up drooling. You have been warned. View Full Post

Dim Sum. Shrimply Delicious!

Before I launch full-steam ahead with my dim sum pics, allow me a short intermission to rave about the most delicious pair of boots I have ever seen. I am coveting these like nobody’s business and pretty much only need one more push (or the gentlest of nudges) to own a new pair of buttery suede Stuart Weitzmans.

They are all the rage right now and I’m seeing them pop up everywhere. Everywhere, no joke. Yes, they are of course…
