Choosing where to live is one of life’s biggest dilemmas. Maybe you’re a recent college graduate struggling to make a decision? Or, perhaps you have a new job and need to relocate, but aren’t sure what area you’d like to reside in? Don’t worry, hopefully, this post will alleviate those concerns. Check it out!
If you love the hustle and bustle of city life, then a city centre pad is sure to be for you. Your job is likely to be nearby, too. So, if you don’t fancy much of a commute in the mornings, then this could well be the way to go. City living poses a lot of advantages. For one, you’re a lot closer to a bunch of nice clubs, bars, restaurants and cafes to indulge in after work hours. Similarly, you’ll be a lot closer to the theatre, cinemas and sports venues, so that you can really engage with the local culture! One downside, is that you’ll be stuck for parking! It’s often pricey and spacey are limited. So if you’re not a fan of public transport - avoid!
If you’ve always been more of a country lover, then you’ll probably find it a lot harder to move into the city. If you like the tranquil sound of songbirds, as opposed to the loud crashes of a construction site, then this is the place for you. Rural homes are always much cheaper than that of ones in urban areas, so you could save yourself some serious cash, too. Nice one! Rural homes give you the opportunity to have a nice, big garden. Something that is often hard to find in a city centre, minimalist apartment. The only downside is you may have to go a little out the way to get essentials like bread and milk, and you could be quite far from a trains station. If you don’t want to feel isolated, maybe avoid this.
If you’re after the best of both worlds, then the suburbs are a safe bet! New town homes are great way to go. Situate yourself between the hustle and bustle of the city and the countryside, you’ll find yourself in a small-ish town in suburbia. That way, you won’t be far from nature, but you’ll be in touching distance of the conveniences of a city. Many people opt for this way of living, simple because you have everything you need at an attainable distance. Towns have a great community vibe, where you still have your privacy, but remain able to recognise individuals. It’s much friendlier than the constant strangers you pass in the city, or the isolation of the countryside.

If you leave home for an office each day, you’re going to need to take a lot of items with you; a laptop, files, lunch, phone and accessories, makeup, wallet, even a spare set of clothes if you’re heading out to a bar or the gym when you’re done. So, a roomy work bag is a necessity. That work bag doesn’t have to be a standard leather briefcase, though. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more
If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
