There’s no hiding the fact that us Brits like to have a good moan. But sometimes you don’t always really realise how good you had it until it’s gone. This is definitely the case since emigrating to America, I took things in the UK for granted and now I’d do anything to get them back!
I was born in England, I lived there for 28 years, I am British. So how comes when I emigrated to America, I feel like I’ve become even more British…if that’s even possible? It’s like the longer I’m away, the more British I become. Maybe it’s that I’ve become more patriotic? As soon as I open my mouth and people realise I’m not a local, it’s like I become a British ambassador, answering their questions, telling them what it’s like to live there. But then I’m also surrounding myself with little things that remind me of home, I guess trying to create myself a miniature England.
I can’t believe it’s the end of May already! Here I’ll be looking back on what I’ve been up to this month, the places I’ve been, the highs and lows, life as a Brit in the States and other random things I’m finding interesting this month!

Now I’m living in America, I read a lot of expat blogs! I find it really interesting reading other people’s experiences and it’s great connecting with other people that are going through a similar thing to what I am (it really is a very weird feeling being an expat!). I was recently tagged in a post by Sandra at Going American, a fellow European now living in Boston, USA and thought it’d be fun to answer her questions about my expat life experience!
Being a Brit in the USA, there’s nothing I enjoy more than receiving a little box of English treats from home! The Little Care Package is a brand new subscription box company aimed at British expats living in America and Canada. It was created by a Brit living in Canada that was, to be honest, disgusted at the price of buying British items overseas…$8 for an English magazine?! She wanted to be able to give us a little slice of home for a more affordable price! Continue reading “Review: The Little Care Package British Subscription Box”
When I was living in England I found myself decorating my room with all my overseas travels. Now I’m living in America, I can’t help but feel comfort in having little bits of ‘home’ surrounding me! Here are some gift ideas that are inspired by the UK!
Cursed is a strong word, maybe I shouldn’t say that. But in small town America, I stick out like a sore thumb. As soon as I open my mouth and speak I get bombarded with questions. At first it was a bit novel but after over 2 months of answering the same questions on a weekly basis, I’m getting tired of having to tell the same story over and over and over and over again!
