Backpackers packing list

It took me a long time to work out exactly what to take with me and what to leave behind. I'm by no means a minimalist, I have a huge wardrobe that's still full to the brim, I've got shoes coming out my ears and enough toiletries to bathe a pamper a small village. For … Continue reading Backpackers packing list

A White Christmas at the Curve

On Wednesday evening myself, my dad and Mat went to the Curve theatre in Leicester to see a show called 'a White Christmas'. Apparently it was a take on the original film with the same name, I'd never seen the original so I went in to it with completely fresh eyes and no expectations! The … Continue reading A White Christmas at the Curve

Decadent hot chocolate recipe (vegan)

The winter weather we've been experiencing quite literally calls for hot chocolate, as a mere necessity in these cold and wet times. It's such a pick me up and an instant tummy warmer. Unfortunately for me coffee shops don't stock vegan whipped cream and marshmallows, so the option of picking one up during my lunch … Continue reading Decadent hot chocolate recipe (vegan)

A ‘Healthy’ Week of Eating

After a week of intense birthday celebrations, and that being followed by a week of long days of working and commuting (check me out, 'adulting' and all that jazz), I'd eaten a lot, and by a lot I mean a lot of rubbish. Eating rubbish foods make me feel so groggy, it makes me feel … Continue reading A ‘Healthy’ Week of Eating

Vegan friendly supermarkets

After recently seeing a statistic that 7% of the UK now identifies as vegan, the supermarkets must surely be following suit, or are they? Whilst at university I shopped mainly at Aldi with the rare visit to Tesco or Sainsbury's. However, now that I am back at home, my food comes from all over the … Continue reading Vegan friendly supermarkets

My recent trip to New York

If you read my recent blog post about my New York outfits, then you’ll already be aware that I went to New York with my dad and Mat last month over the Easter break (if you haven't, take a read). Going away with my dad and Mat is so much fun, we all bounce off … Continue reading My recent trip to New York

Being Productive

We're always juggling loads of different commitments or tasks, and sometimes completing them all to the best of our ability seems impossible. It can sometimes feel overwhelming, and I don't think I am alone when I say that feeling overwhelmed can often lead to a decrease in productivity and motivation. It's often when we have … Continue reading Being Productive

What I wore in New York

I recently went to New York with my dad and Mat, and the famous city was even better than I remembered. The tall buildings, yummy food and endless things to do and see, I was ready for it all! One of the main things I was looking forward to was wearing some nice clothes and … Continue reading What I wore in New York
