Living in London: Like a Rollercoaster

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” -Henry Miller It’s been seven weeks already! In the blink of an eye, I’m almost done with my time here in Europe. Looking back at the many memories, some definitely better than others, and at the person I’ve become, I realize how ...

17A: The Final Collection

This past week was definitely one of hard work with our upcoming deadline for our final collection on Thursday, August 2. Since the last time I wrote about my project, things have changed. My concept took a bit of a turn during my visit to the National Gallery about two weeks ago. As I explored ...

Trip to the English Countryside

Last Sunday, I decided to leave the crowded city, and explore some of the more rural parts of England. One of the spots dated back to more than a thousand years ago, when Anglo-Saxons still ruled the country. In a small coach bus in just 11 hours, we visited some of the most important spots ...

Flea Markets and Street Food

After a full week of traveling, I finally got to enjoy a full weekend back in London. I have to say, I missed it a bit. I guess it’s starting to feel like home. Last Saturday, two friends and I decided to explore the market scene in the city. To start off, we took the ...

Footwear and Fun

Besides fun travels, my academic experience here in London has, without a doubt, been one of the most rewarding ones during my time abroad. My knowledge and abilities in footwear design have definitely flourished and improved since the start. After all, if your thinking of doing footwear design, what better city to do it than ...

If you can’t go back home, let home come to you!

These past two weeks have been amazing! However, back to a school routine, it doesn’t feel like a vacation anymore. London suddenly seems like the most complex, crowded city in the world! Being in contact with this everyday has, inevitably, made me feel a bit homesick. Especially living my days five hours ahead, it has ...

Tea time, anyone?

London, finally! After four months full of anticipation, and a Week 10 full of tight deadlines and a stressful move out, I finally made it to the place I looked forward to being in the most. As a Puerto Rican, and travel junkie, I’ve had the chance to experience many cultures throughout my lifetime, and ...

Market to Market

Colorful houses along Portobello Market For my second to last day in London my friend Marissa and I explored two different markets for the very last time. The first market we went to was Portobello Market, which is one that I haven’t been to yet. The market was unique in that it was a mix ...

Leaving London

A light display in a South Kensington boutique window It’s my final week here in London and I’ve been counting down the days for over a month now. As amazing as studying abroad has been, it’s been way too long since I’ve been home. To sum up my London experience, I want to take the ...

London Haul

I am one of the most frugal people you’ll ever meet. I tend to pick up pennies off the ground, thrift shop and order the cheapest meal on the menu. I don’t online shop unless there’s free shipping and I’m constantly searching for the best deals by looking for coupons and freebies, especially anything that ...
