While Nicole and I were taking shameless tourist Lumia selfies on 5th Avenue on our way to a cocktail event at Tiffany and Co‘s, I suddenly realised I looked like I dressed as their signature mint and white ribbon packaging. It wasn’t on purpose I swear! It is always a surreal moment when going to events like this in New York, when I remember going halves with my sister for a Tiffany’s necklace for my mum’s birthday many years ago. Maybe that comes with being so homesick right now, that the adrenaline has passed and now a different level of sentimental enjoyment as taken place. Thinking of home so much makes me value and take in everything I can’t experience in my small town; or what my family and friends there haven’t experienced over here. That probably doesn’t make sense but this is my headspace at the moment, nostalgic longing mixed with an overwhelmed appreciation. Thank you so much to all of the supportive comments and emails left by readers serving as amazing reminders why I push myself, I can’t explain how much they have meant to me.
