Lifestyle: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year



Admiring one of the National Trust's Christmas trees


Seasons Greetings!

 

If I could write every reader a Christmas card, I would, but I wouldn't know where to send them, so I thought a blog post would have to do.

From my family to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Take time out, chill, watch Christmas movies and eat all the good stuff.


Lifestyle: Top 10 Things About Living In A Hotel






Earlier this year in October, I went to New Zealand for a month with work (H&M) to open the first H&M in New Zealand in Sylvia Park Shopping Centre for a month I lived in a Hotel. The Hotel was on the Auckland Harbour and was my home from home with a double bed, living space, kitchen and bathroom. The Sebel Viaduct was great.  Living in a hotel was amazing, a travel bloggers dream, but I did basically live of Avocado on toast and got far too into smoothies and juices, here are my top ten things about living in a hotel...



Lifestyle: Autumn Walks




A sunny autumn day

*This post has admittedly, been in the draft box a while, I now need another jumper and mittens on! 

I'll be honest, when I got back from New Zealand, it was weird. I wrote about what it was like when i'd just returned home here, and after that post, I took a few days to unpack, go through all the post the month had accumulated and had some down time at home, on my own before picking back up at University and going back to work in the UK.

Weekly Round-Up

This week has been a busy one! I've really got into the festive spirit after all the Ice skating, festive food and if you follow me on Twitter you'll know all about the cocktails! It's been a week of work and play, mixing university and work, the deadline pressure and family time up north in Newcastle.


Teamwork is the dreamwork


Lifestyle: University Reflection



Hello Internet friends!

For all those of you who are at university and college - I hope you're doing alright and are coping with the strain that study brings. I'm in my final year and I honestly can't wait for it to be over. I found myself thinking about my time at university, whilst on campus late the other night. I've learnt a lot from my time there, but I also didn't get to experience it to the fullest due to factors way out of my control (1. That 9k rent) (2. That 9k rent) I'm also a bit of an introvert at university and don't really have a 'group' that I've settled with friends-wise whilst I've been there.

Food: City Spice Curry House, Brick Lane, London



Last week I was down Brick Lane to pick up my glasses (read my weekly round up lifestyle blogpost here) after picking them up and still having plenty of time on my hands, I opted for a curry rather than a coffee shop sandwich, which on Brick Lane is basically the same price. Inflation ey?

All the curry goodness for £11

If you haven't been to Brick Lane in Shoreditch before, it's the Capitol of curry, it's full of curry houses and stores selling things to make curry. And it's also rife with curry touts, stood outside their restaurants, drumming up business for their restaurants, trying to get people to come inside and eat. It's an old tradition that stands strong in this mostly independent restaurant area.

With the girls at Resorts world! 

This week has been a lifestyle bloggers dream, on paper. In reality I've struggled to get focused on my university work, at a time that's really key for me. It's a struggle every student can appreciate, so if you've got some motivational tips, I'm all ears!
