So, AUSTRALIA HAS ME BACK. Yayyyyy….. Well maybe not. Honestly, i’m starting to feel like LA is my second home and I’ve never felt this way about any country or place before, but sometimes I didn’t want to leave. No matter if I was in the Bali, New York or in Italy, I always looked forward to heading home again, even after an amazing adventures and trips of course. But not this time …
What some of my readers don’t know, is the reason behind my four trips to America this last year is my better half works in America. Which may be a big reason as to why I didn’t really want to leave. I left 5 weeks before him this trip to return to Sydney, 5 weeks is along time to be apart after 2 months together. It’s funny, we actually may have spent more time together overseas than in Australia … NEARLY.
So I guess, maybe just maybe, I could see myself making a more permanent move to LA. The natural and most likely destination would be West Hollywood probably or Venice. I actually really LOVED Venice, found my fav coffee spots, cafes to work from, cardio walks etc etc. In my head I even realistically can see myself moving to LA in February. With all my work commitments in Australia though I could see myself coming home every 2 months for a month. Also, I think I’d miss my business partner Tempe, and my amazing girlfriends far too much to stay away for too long. Has this ever happened to you before? Such a strange feeling wanting to be and live in two places at once. Almost as if I’m torn in two. It’s not that I don’t love Sydney. I really do and I honestly think it’s the best place to live in the entire world! But, he is also the best thing that has ever happened to me! Ideally, I’d go for a year maybe a little longer. God sorry I’m totally ‘waffling’. This is a personal blog/ramble guys, I don’t expect you to read it all 😉
I feel like I need something like this to grow as a person as well. Everyone I’ve spoken to about living overseas and moving has said that its enriched them in life, helped them to grow and change. After all, how can we grow if we don’t challenge ourselves and change our surroundings?
And I’m not only talking, I really do mean it haha. I don’t know if you noticed – but I got so happy and chilled over there? I had a lot more time to write on my blog – though I did get behind on my Avenew work but we are all up to do date now. Did you see my Instagram feed during my 2 months in LA?Looking back in retrospect of the months that have recently passed I was shocked I’d never seen so many chilled pictures of me and never seen so many pictures of me with undone hair either haha. At the same time the energy of the people is contagious. Of course it’s hard to make it, but people at such a young age just go out there and DO things. Trying to live their dream and realizing their ideas. I like this about America. The hustle.
I feel like I’m already annoying everybody with my excitement haha. Sorry for that. Some of you asked me: “Emma, what are you doing in LA? Just loving life?” No guys! Haha I’m always working. I’m always online. Whether I’m working on BUY MY CLOTHES or my blog, instagram story and sourcing which clients I want to work with, shoot, review and feature or working with Tempest on Avenew – social media consulting guys which is getting SUPER BUSY – luckily I can do this remotely from anywhere thanks to the online world.
So because all of my work in online, I really am blessed to have the opportunity to work from anywhere in the world – hence the work trips to Bali – this is something i’m really grateful for. It means I can be with my other half and still pursue my own dreams and ambitions. I love working my ass off and ill always want more …. Anyone else feel that way?
Haha anyway that’s what MAY be on the horizon for February 2017 angels. A lot to think about but I’m really like the thought of it at the moment.
Secondly: I have a really really exciting project launching in mid January, that we have just started working on! It will be launched at the time of my new website – which is going to be AMAZING and a lot more interactive – the blog will be in sectioned categories so you can just read what interests you. There will also be an option to comment on every blog post and ask questions so I can get back to you. So yes, the surprise is something that will be launched along side it and I really really hope you all love it!
MUCH LOVE! Have a nice Tuesday! (yes its Tuesday somewhere in the world).
