#FridayFive: Five Things I Don’t Miss About Living in London

You may have seen my earlier #FridayFive post about the five things I missed most about living in London. If you read my blog while I lived in London, you’ll know that alongside it being the best year of my life, I did complain about it quite a bit. There…

University of Greenwich Talk: My Tips for Student Bloggers

Just yesterday, I gave my first ever university talk at a different university to my own. I was invited down to the University of Greenwich to give a talk to PR students about my journey and my blog. I was pleasantly surprised and quite shocked to get the email as…

#FridayFive: Five Things I Miss About Living in London

I didn’t half time this post well as I’m currently sat in the very place itself! I wasn’t as excited when my alarm went off at 5am, I can assure you. It’s the first time I’ve been back in London since moving out in July so I’m extremely eager to…

Dealing with Impostor Syndrome

Before we get into it, you’re probably wondering what on earth Impostor Syndrome is.

The Best Brunch Spots in London

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I’m somewhat of a brunch connoisseur. I like to think I know a good brunch when I see (and taste) one. There’s even a highlights reel on my Instagram dedicated to my favourites which you can find here. Now…

What I’ve Learnt Living in London for One Whole Year

Today, the 24th of June, marks the one year anniversary of my move to London. I’ve been here 12 whole months. 365 days. To say a lot has happened in those 12 months would be an understatement. I can most definitely say that it’s been the best year of my…

#PlacementYear: Month Eleven

I have seven weeks left of placement. Two months to go. Can someone hurry up and invent a time machine so I can go back eleven months and re-live it all over again?? The month of May has been quite a stressful one. With Student Finance sending reminder texts every…
