Who am I: I’ve been an expat since 2007, mostly in London with six months in Colombia in 2011. I was born in a suburb between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, New York called North Tonawanda.  My background is in journalism, international education and social media marketing. I work full time as a social media strategist for an international education company and have been blogging almost daily since 2002.

Loves: London, tea, photography, graffiti hunting, travel, learning about other cultures, books, exploring London, social media, blogging (obviously).

You can also find me: On Little Observationist, a second blog, similar but wider reaching beyond London.

Support: If you want to support the blog (along with my expensive travel wish list), I sell photography prints!

  2. Stephanie, you have a great blog! My family was in England for 4 years in the late 80’s/early 90’s (in the Air Force) and we made many trips to London with the kids. So many great memories. When we see English shows on PBS or BBC we hearken back to those days.

  3. Just found your blog through blog surfing, and it really is amazing! Love the amazing shots of London; really makes me want to visit there someday!

  4. love your blog. would you like to contribute to my site as well maybe once a month and be featured on site as well. do you have a email so i can explain more. site is silentambiance.com

    • Hi Jabbar,

      Thanks for inviting me to guest post. I don’t know that I can commit on a monthly basis because I have a lot going on, but I’d definitely be up for it now and then. I usually ask that people sponsor a giveaway of one of my 8×10 photography prints on my blog if I write them a guest post (which will link back to your blog as well). It’s the cost of printing and shipping in the UK which is usually around £7 or so. What do you have in mind exactly for a guest post? You can email me at stephanie.sadler@hotmail.co.uk and we can chat. Cheers!

  5. Hey there, I visited London in November..I had not been there since I was a teenager. I forgot how amazing it is! I am currently reading Craig Taylor’s Londoners and hoping to relocate immediately….at the moment applying for jobs there!

  6. Hi Stephanie – we just moved over from NYC and are missing our does of all things Latin. I just saw your post on Colombian restuarants and the Brixton Market – when we would want to head down there to check out the Colombian food/stalls?

  7. Very excited that I found your blog today when I was googling information on Pablo Delgado. I moved to London in December 2010 and I’m still trying to take in as much as I can. I’m looking forward to going through your older posts to see what I’ve missed!

  8. hey! I’m a new zealander from the bottom of the world and haven’t experienced much travel wise, but your love for london life has filled me with enthusiasm to go there!! I’m super excited 🙂 XX

  9. I’m from Canada and have been thinking about moving to London for years but it’s scary when I don’t really know enough about what it’s like living there to make an informed decision. Your blog will help with that. Thank you kindly.

  10. I really enjoy your blog. Your content and all the great links allow me to spend many rainy afternoons here on Vancouver Island thinking about our next London trip. They also generate lots of conversation starters with my daughter who is heading back for a second gap year stint over the summer.

    Thank you for all the work you do to share this amazing city.

  11. Hi!
    I’m a casting producer on the hit American television show “House Hunters International”. I had a look at your blog and I think you would be a great candidate for our show!

    If you’re interested, please respond with a contact number and I’ll call you at a time that is convenient for you.

    I look forward to hearing from you!


  12. Found you through Freshly Pressed and as another ex-pat living in and loving London, I love your blog.

    Also, I adore the dress you’re wearing above!

    • I suppose after 5 years here, it does get kind of annoying to be on a mission to get down the escalator when it’s plugged up with a wad of tourists 🙂 That said, I do love tourists when they stand on the correct side! I think they play a huge role in the vibrancy of this city and it wouldn’t be what it is without them.

    • Brilliant blog you’ve got as well. My uncle is a London cabbie as well. Lots of stories to tell! If you’re interested, I’d love to interview you for my “Listen to a Londoner” section. If you’re up for it, let me know. There’s a link in the menu under the interview section so you can have a look at all the past ones…

      Cheers for stopping by!

  13. I know how you feel as I am new to the UK myself. It is interesting to observe things and people here. I love this country even though it doesn’t like me the same,hehe. My hubby always wonders why I see things in a way he has never thought before.I have started a topic “culture shock” on my page. welcome to visit and leave your comment.cheers.

  14. Hi Stephanie, i love your blog, and sunday email! I wanted to let you know about a unique event happening Oct 27-28 at the V&A – its the annual British Mosaic Forum and tix are still available. Mosaics old and new are everywhere in London, and the event will feature tours and lectures by working artists, historians and scholars (i’m one of them) anyway hope you’ll share with your art loving community. many thanks, Lillian – http://www.bamm.org.uk/front/bammmosaicforum.html
