Create a keepsake of memories so you never forget this crazy immigration journey ✈️

Moving to a new country comes with a mountain of to-dos and a rollercoaster of emotions – and time really does FLY by!

Before you know it, you’ve lived in your new home for several years and still feel like you’re going around in circles…

After moving to Canada from the UK in 2017, it took me over 2 years to finally feel settled. I felt like I was making zero progress in pretty much every area of my life.

It wasn’t until I found an old homesick journal entry from the previous year that I realised how much progress I’d actually made!

Introducing: the Newcomer Collective journal – Made with love to reflect on and track the highs and lows of your adventure.

How does it work?


My journal entries

The reason why I created this little blue book…

June 2018

The WORST day of sadness + struggle today. I don’t like it here. I can’t picture my life here. At what point are you supposed to think enough is enough and it’s not just homesickness and you should go back?

June 2019

Wow, what a difference a year can make… I’m ENGAGED! New house being built. Building my own business. Looking forward to a beautiful summer in Canada with my incredible friends. Feeling settled, happy + light years away from 2018 me ❤️

Sometimes we forget to look back and appreciate our wins… So I made the perfect tool for you to start!
