…why are we starting a blog?
Like me, I am sure you sometimes find yourself stuck in your everyday routine, desperately seeking new ways to escape from a reality mainly inspired by hours surfing the internet after a tiring day at work or University. You are not alone. This blog started with the idea of crossing places and activities off a ‘List of things to do in my life’ I wrote some years ago in a little notebook of mine. For years, I have been decorating that book with little souvenirs and postcards I collected on my trips, making that list bigger while ticking things off.
It has gotten to the point it is almost impossible to close. So we thought, why not collect everything we have done so far and have yet left to experience in a place where other people could get inspiration from?
Because, life should be about taking risks, making lifelong memories and trying to get as much cultural knowledge as possible, right?
This is when Blushrougette was born.
Funnily enough, Sam and I would have never met if I did not pack my bags and fulfilled a lifelong wish to move from Tenerife to London. We believe it is essential to do things out of the ordinary, even if it is just once in a while – like travelling, this lets your eyes and mind open up to the wonders our world has to offer. You experience foreign culture and history first hand that you normally wouldn’t, with the bonus of meeting wonderful people and making amazing friends along the way.
Like you, we also lust over food and drinks, and especially love it when we get the opportunity to try local dishes abroad (a bit of a bummer when we cannot find Sam’s favourite Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheetos anywhere in London though). We love fashion, architecture, interior design and reading about trends while desperately trying to get the most out of the wonderful city of London when we don’t find ourselves lost among crowds at gigs across the city.
We want to share all these adventures, lifestyle and foodie tips with you with the hope of making lifelong memories and inspiring you to do the same. Of course, it goes without saying we would love to hear any suggestions from you too!
