When you read this, I will either be on the plane or in my new city, aka London! It’s so so so exciting but also really hard at the same time. The past few days have been filled with tears (saying goodbye is the hardest), but also full of hope. I wanted to do a post to recap my last few days in Montreal. After this one I’ll stop blabbering about the struggles of ‘moving abroad’ and continue the regular programming with hopefully lots of fun content about London!
Leaving my job
Leaving my job at Love that Bag has been one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do before leaving. This company has been part of my life since 2015 and I know I will feel a void in a few days when I realize it’s over. I absolutely loved working there, making friends, and learning about the intricacies of luxury fashion. When I left, my boss organised a mini goodbye party at Pullman Bar à Vin and also invited ex-employees to join. We had the fun time drinking wine, eating tapas and taking polaroids.
A goodbye evening with my friends
To celebrate my departure, I invited a few friends to join me for drinks at Henri Brasserie Française followed by a Mexican fest at Escondite. I wore my favourite Ganni dress and had such an amazing evening. I’m so so lucky to have these women in my life!
Some things I’ve enjoyed…
Just before leaving, I read a book and watched a movie that made me feel like everything is possible; respectively Miss You by Kate Eberlen and the movie Love, Rosie. By some sort of luck, both of them are set in the UK and maybe that’s why I loved them so much (ok that’s not true, it’s also because the most good looking actor *cough* *cough* Sam Clafin plays a lead role). I would definitely recommend them!
Of course it’s been amazing spending time with my family, cooking amazing food, enjoying the countryside!
If you’re in a similar situation and moving abroad soon, the only advice I can give you is to enjoy it to the max and to spend as much time as you can with your loved ones before leaving!
