Vanilla & Digestive Cupcakes

Tomorrow my college at University is hosting a Comic Relief bake off and I thought why not take part? I probably should have answered that question with ‘you don’t own weighing scales at uni so you will have to guess the ingredients quantity’ but I did not. I made cupcakes and yes, I guess the […]

Re-decorate

My Dad has lived in the same house since I was three years old and up until about a week ago my bedroom hadn’t changed since then. When I started uni three years ago I stopped staying at my Dads so much when I went home and predominantly lived with my Mum. I couldn’t work […]

Hashtag

I had a scour of instagram this week to find some inspo and photos. Harder than it looks. People post photos with hashtags that are completely irrelevant to the photo they’re posting! However I did find some beauties… take a look: Before I start I have just realised that, clever as I am, I totally forgot to […]

Food Porn

Yesterday my boyfriend and I had an argument. No, let me rephrase that, he said something mean and I shouted at him. I had every intention of not speak to him for a few hours to cool off however he turned up no more than 45 minutes later, in the library, with a diet coke, […]

What It’s Like: To Be An Intern

I’ve done my fair share of intern work; from law firms to newspapers, so I am under no illusion that the work is ever all that exciting. The point of it? Well really it’s to put it on your CV, that’s the motivation, but if I am genuinely interested I do try to view those […]

The Etiquette of Twitter

First of all I would like to apologise for dropping off the radar over the New Year period. I spent NYE in Manchester then went onto to London where I managed to pack Wicked, the Nutcracker, the Opera and some shopping into 3 days! I am now sitting comfortably in a very pretty B&B in Tunbridge Wells […]

5 Outfits Your Puppy Should Have This Xmas

So I know most people recoil in horror when they hear of buying their dog clothes and I have to admit I am one of the people that dresses her pets. Although I think my border terrier may be a little too big now to look uber cute in his outfits I still like to […]

Christmas Time

I have been stupidly busy at University recently with the end of term and like a billion essay deadlines coming up which means my blog posts have been, quite frankly, embrassingly infrequent. How do I make that up to my wonderful followers (and anyone else who stumbles upon this page)? Well for one I am […]

Mince Pie Recipe

So my Grandma was always the mince pie maker of the house but in recent years, as my baking skills have improved, I’ve begun to take over and, as she find it hard to get round the kitchen and remember what goes where, give her a little break. So now she is in charge of […]

5 Pictures to Brighten Up Your Day

Tonight my boyfriends coming over to cook me some dinner and my plan was to have a lovely relaxing evening, chill in front of the tv with some candles lit, dinner and maybe some ice cream. Oh wait, things are never quite that simple. I’ve just split diet coke all over my bed and, considering […]

Halloween: All In?

I must admit I really don’t like fancy dress, in any form. I don’t want to dress like a whore but I do want to look nice and I have never managed to find a balance… either you dress like a slut or you look horrible and I am personally not a fan of either […]

Easy Paella

I’ve probably said it before but I firmly believe anyone can cook if they try, it’s the trying that is the hard part! The concept of making something like paella is probably fairly daunting even for people who do cook but I promise, and this is coming from a lazy student, that this recipe is […]

Prepare Yourself.

After many years, many designs and many attempted tattoo parlour trips I finally made it in and out with some ink. One thing I did find however was there wasn’t a huge amount of useful preparation tips for tattoo first timers so I am hoping, for those of you who are thinking of or know […]

Reason I Love My Room

I’ve wanted one for ages and now I finally have one! I plan to increase this collection as I am completely in love with dream catchers. Plus they do work, I hadn’t a bad dream in days then last night it fell off the wall and I had a bad dream. True story. Maybe I […]

Tattoo Time

So I am getting a tattoo very soon and I have been back and forth with designs more times than I think I even realise. I know the meaning behind it and I know the concept of it but getting it perfect is next to impossible! So I am sharing some of my inspo on […]

Prawn and Bacon Risotto Recipe

    Prawn and Bacon Risotto So I’m a student and my meals tend to really be based on whatever I have in the fridge or freezer. So bacon and prawns might not sound like the perfect match but actually, they are pretty damn tasty. This isn’t a quick recipe, it takes about half an […]

Design Me A Bedroom

So I’ve just moved back into University owned accommodation, which is fairly difficult to make look individual in any way, but I have done my best to put in my own things. Maybe it’s my recent Parisian experience but I adore French posters at the minute… hence all the French posters. The map is one […]
