The flat is a 2 bed/2 bath so I get my own bathroom. The room itself is smaller than any room I have lived in in Sydney but decently sized by London standards. There is a TINY built-in wardrobe, a bed, a chest of drawers and shelves. There is no way I could have lived like this in Sydney but having almost nothing in terms of material possessions in London, the storage in the room is more than enough.
The bathroom is absolutely huge, even by Sydney standards. I love the mirrors, the generous benchtop space, the stone tiles and the heated towel rack.
I bought myself this acrylic makeup storage from MUJI as a little housewarming present to myself.
The flat is in a gated area with concierge (who signs for all packages and I just pick them up whenever). There is also a Virgin Active in the complex so when I start earning pounds I will probably sign up. I really would have no excuse not to go to the gym given it would take me 20 seconds to get there.
I've moved to an area called Angel which is about 4km north of the main financial hub in the city where I will (hopefully) likely be working. I should be able to walk to work in 35 mins or so. The closest tube station is a 7 minute walk down the road. Being so close to the city also means buses are aplenty (and much cheaper at £1.50/ride instead of roughly £3 for a trip on the tube).
Angel itself is buzzing with activity. There are 2 supermarkets within a 30 second walk from my flat. There's a multitude of shops - H&M, GAP, French Connection, Marks & Spencer, Accessorize, MUJI, Reiss, Boots, Argos (which is a department store on crack). There's a few cinemas, I think 5 supermarkets in total, markets on the weekend, and a ridiculous number of cafes, bars, pubs, and restaurants.
