About Jess

Jess lived in Belgium for ten years until she was offered the chance to live in London. Asking her where “home” is increasingly becomes a challenge. She studied in Paris and upstate New York. She works in film production and web design for a creative agency, and loves special event planning. She spends way too much time watching TV and considers frequent trips to bookstores to be time very well spent. She wishes she was more adventurous and drinks bold wines to make up for it.  Devoted to her two cats, she also secretly plots to add a proper dog to that equation (proper dogs being ones that do not fit in a handbag).

She walked into an Anthropologie store 15 years ago and has been trying to make her life look like the interior ever since. Blogging is the closest thing she has found to getting there. Lots of what she comes across/loves/obsesses over/covets/plans on stealing (no, not really) can be found within this blog.

    Hi Jess, I bumped into your blog through your Instagram page and have spent the last hour on it-its fab! Your recent and funny accounts of moving to London had me in stitches and reminded me of what it was like when I first moved to the UK. Speaking of pronunciations, I particularly struggled with city names that had ‘w’. I remember planning a trip to ‘Norrich’ and being completely baffled by why it wasn’t on the map. I did eventually figure out that it was spelt Norwich. There are a host of places like that but then, just to confuse you, there are some where you do pronounce the ‘w’. I hope you enjoy London; it is fabulous! Ann x

      Thank you so much Ann! So glad to have just discovered your blog too – your summer looks like it was absolutely fabulous! Glad to hear I am not the only one who has trouble with the W’s… My boyfriend D was born in Worcestershire… took me ages to get that one right! Looking forward to more reading. xx J

    So happy to stumble across your blog! We are fairly recent transplants to Brussels who also have a soft spot for London. Perfect! I look forward to following your adventures (and hopefully picking up some tips on our current hometown).

      Thank you so much! Brussels is a lovely city to get to know and London is always just a train trip away :) Looking forward to reading up on your discoveries too!
