It feels like years since I last started writing something on here and despite how full my drafts are with half written blogs and ideas, I guess life just sort of got in the way. Yet now I’m here with what feels like all the time in the world and so it just makes sense to try and get back into what I love doing … Continue reading Staying Happy At Home
The South of France is a destination I had longed to cross off my travel list ever since watching Monte Carlo when I was younger, which in hindsight was not Selena Gomez’ best acting I’ll admit. Then, followed by a long running obsession with Gossip Girl, Blair’s short-lived Princess status and Monaco’s fictional Royal Family had got me most intrigued as to how the real … Continue reading Nothing but sun, sea and red wine: Travelling up and down the Côte d’Azur
Just graduated and feeling major Freshers FOMO? Join the club. It’s the big month – thousands of Freshers all over the country are settling in to their new university cities, drinking their body contents in vodka and probably already having thought about dropping out.

Ever experienced the excruciating pain that is a five week month? When pay day seems just so far away and in reality, it bloody is. Well, before me and Andrei went on our city break to Berlin, this is the situation us poor victims of retail were having. Pay day landed – quite literally – as we got back to the UK, which was super helpful. *insert upside down smiley face emoji* However, we managed to do three days in Berlin on a budget and still had an amazing time.

Dear fellow Graduates, I see you are confused, perhaps frustrated and even a little scared now that you have finally received that scroll and worn your cap and gown. Your university journey is officially over and I know that is daunting, I myself am absolutely terrified, but there really is no need to feel so stressed about your next step. You are in an amazing … Continue reading A short but sweet letter to all graduates who are worrying about ‘what’s next?’

Following Phillip Hammond’s promise to ensure that young females who come from low-income families, and may be experiencing period poverty, will now receive free sanitary products within their secondary schools from September onward. As well as the most recent announcement that primary school girls will receive free sanitary products as of next year too, it seems that the government has officially taken its first steps in … Continue reading Period Poverty: but what about homeless women?
It is with mixed emotions that I commence my last four weeks of university – well, actually only two if you don’t count Easter. Either way, I cannot pinpoint whether I feel completely relieved, sad, overjoyed or terrified. It is definitely a mixture of all four, but mostly the latter. I am terrified. Absolutely terrified about graduating. I feel like I should totally have my … Continue reading Kind of relieved, kind of absolutely terrified: how do you feel about graduating this year?
