About Me

New York City has a population of 8,537,673 and soon, there’ll be one more…ME!

Hi! I’m Leesa, and I’m starting this blog to chart the highs, lows and everything in between as I move from my home in London to New York City, my soon-to-be new-home!

I’m in my 30s, moving for my career and super excited to be embarking on a new chapter of my life in New York, a city that I’ve loved for years and always dreamed about living in. Now that dream’s becoming a reality and the excitement is fast becoming tangled with nerves, inevitable sadness to be leaving my amazing family and friends, as well as a healthy dose of “am I crazy to be moving to the other side of the Atlantic by myself right now?!”

I’ll be sharing my experiences of leaving my home town and setting up life somewhere new, as well as posts on NYC adventures, hidden gems, food, wine, travel and beauty – all of which are some of my favourite things!

Come join me as I jump across the pond!
