Blog Birthday / Relocation News

Hello lovelies! Yesterday marked 'Serpentine Streets' one year birthday - how exciting is that?! Although this summer has seen a small hiatus in my posting, this blog has certainly grown past any expectation I held while writing that very first introduction post. Of course none of this would have been possible without the continued support of my amazing followers and the wonderful bloggers I've met along the way - a huge heartfelt thank you to each of you!

I began blogging just after relocating to Vancouver last Autumn, and at this one year mark I have amazing news of a new relocation (I warned you I was a nomad). In exactly one week I'll be following a wonderful opportunity & moving to London. I'm currently in a constant state of exhilaration versus pure terror. So far the most daunting task has been trying to cull my closet & pack my entire life into one suitcase that weighs less than 20kg. As you can imagine it's not going so well...  (despite some good advice from Olivia of Wanderlust & Such, I can't seem to wrap my head around not bringing at least 14 pairs of shoes).

Before I leave Vancouver I do have a number of posts to cram in; most notably some great shots from FNO Vancouver & a shoot with the lovely Kristine Mackenzie (featuring a handful of her beautiful designs). If all goes accordingly, the first of the bunch will be up tomorrow so be sure to check back! :)


  1. OMG that's so exciting! I've ALWAYS wanted to visit London, let alone live there! I'm excited to read more about your upcoming adventures :)

  2. Happy blog birthday!!! Wow London?! This is sooooo cool my dear, what a great opportunity :)

    Take care,
