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.
Between a supremely illuminating talk from Alain du Botton at The School Of Life, Skepta's sold out show at KOKO, some fab lunches and events and an interview with my new fave person in the world: Karen Civil, May has been a super busy month. Check out the highlights below...
You know when you read a book so good it changes your perspective on life and how you live it? It doesn't happen all that often but when it does, it's a revelation of a moment. Last year, my bestie bought me Alain de Botton's bestseller 'Essays On Love' and it has quickly become one of my favourite books of all time. If you haven't read it already, I highly, highly recommend.
