Byredo perfume is certainly worth the price tag…

Everything about Byredo is just so stylish and elegant – the black and white packaging, the understated beautifully blended scents that linger throughout the day. These perfumes are pure luxury and such a wonderful investment for when you want to treat yourself.

Ready for the next step

Long time no blog… I started this blog after my trip from Japan when I was still so wonderfully jetlagged and needed something to do at 4am in the morning. And then the jetlag went away and reality of day-to-day life sunk in.

So what’s happened since? I moved jobs multiple times. Then moved from London to Dubai. Then 2 weeks ago quit my job to pursue a Masters course in International Relations and am working off my 3 month notice. No one can say this has been an uneventful few years!

With my new found freedom and flexibility (once my notice period is over), I want to resurrect this blog and share my experiences of studying again, life in the Middle East and trying to figure out my next steps.

Secret Style of a City Girl 2.0 is on!
