My ex-boyfriend and I broke up almost a year ago, but I’m still receiving messages from strangers asking how and why. When we first met, almost six years ago, Instagram barely existed. Young and in love, we uploaded selfies with sappy captions about how much we adored each other.
As our relationship progressed from one year to three to five, we kept posting. As with most millennials, social media became an extension of our lives — and we were the biggest part of each others’ — so evidence of our relationship was everywhere.
This month, I’ve been based out of LA and I literally don’t ever want to leave. I’m lucky enough to pretty much be able to work from anywhere, so with my office (i.e my laptop) on my back I’ve been living and typing away out of LA coffeeshops, meeting new people and enjoying some sunshine in the meantime. Did I mention I don’t ever want to leave?
As such, my highlights of the month will likely be quite different to usual because EVERYTHING is a highlight. Waking up and seeing the sun streaming through my windows and the palm trees lining the streets, getting a matcha latte (my new obsession of life) while basking in the LA light… literally everything. I was meant to go to New York for my first season of NYFW, but when the flights got cancelled due to a snowstorm I shrugged, put on a t-shirt and I went for a walk on the beach. Anyway, sorry, you probably hate me now but here are the highlights of February…
