Over the past few weeks, my life has revolved around uni work, uni work, and more uni work. I've been trying to get ahead in time for the Christmas break (so I can actually enjoy it!) and the hard work has paid off - I've completed 2/3 assignments! It's made me feel rather productive and… Continue reading How to Step Outside your Comfort-Zone
I've just got back from a weekend away in the beautiful city of Oxford. I'd never been before and was really looking forward to visiting a new city and exploring what was there. The trip was my 21st birthday treat so I planned and wrote down all the places I wanted to visit (I love… Continue reading A Weekend Away
This week is my birthday week, woohoo! Yes, I'll be 21 tomorrow (21st Nov) and this has filled me with both excitement and existential dread. I'll be officially in my 20s... where did my childhood go? I'll have to do adult stuff in an adult world of working a 9-5, doing something I haven't decided… Continue reading Weekly Round-Up
This weekend, I hopped on the Eurostar and it whisked me off to lovely Paris for the weekend. I went to see my best friend, Laura, who's recently moved there (lucky me, I get to visit!) and I had the best time! When I fist arrived (Friday), I was too tired to do very much,… Continue reading A Paris Retreat
It's that time of year again (cue excitable scream) - yes, it's autumn and that means cosy nights in, hot chocolates and of course, winter clothing. It's easily my favourite time of year (I know, original), but I just can't get enough of the brightly coloured leaves, dark evenings and frosty mornings. Since the clocks… Continue reading Autumnal Coats
How can this tiny little blog in the furthest corner of the internet possibly be nominated for the Liebster Award? Well, I'm not sure, but it has happened. Somehow. I'm very pleased and excited to take part in this, and I'd love to thank Mary from Mary's Life for nominating me - she has a… Continue reading THE LIEBSTER AWARD!
This week, I've decided to give you a whistle-stop tour of all the interesting and fun things I've been reading, watching or listening to. As I've had a bit more free time this week, I've used this as an excuse to delve into the world of blogs, books and bloomin' good music, and thought you… Continue reading Weekly Round-Up
I came to the University of Gloucestershire two years ago and now I embark on my final year here in Cheltenham. The strange thing is, it has gone so unbelievably quick that I honestly don't know how all of this has happened. But here I am, still trying to adult. Now that I've been a… Continue reading My Life as a Student
Happy (adjective) feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. The meaning of happiness is different for everyone. It could mean being close to family or finding love, making lots of money or buying new things. Whatever it is, we are always striving for it; making everyday decisions to help us reach those happiness goals. But… Continue reading Feeling Happy?
Last week, Dom and I visited the Netherlands – home to idyllic windmills, canals, tulip fields and cycling routes. We stayed in Utrecht, a city about a 25 minute train journey away from the capital, Amsterdam. We stayed for a week and managed to cram in lots of things during our time there. It was… Continue reading Holiday to Amsterdam!
