• Blogmas: Day Thirteen!

    Currently 8 am and TODAY IS THE DAY. I’M GOING HOME. QUICK, I’m about to break out into the going home song from Radio 1. Currently listening to Driving Home For Christmas, I’m just sat in my bedroom so you know being a little bit ahead of myself but I’m just so excited! I’m meeting my parents at the South Bank to look at the Christmas market then we’re getting all my stuff and I’ll be going home for 5 weeks GAH. Mums prepared a mac and cheese for me too, what a gal. I’ve been listening to Michael Bubles Christmas album, I know I keep going on about Christmas…

  • Blogmas: Day Ten!

    Hiiiiiyaaa, how are we into double figures?! That means just 15 days until Christmas, I wish I was the man from The Grinch who does the countdown on the  clock, he seems like a great guy. Last night we had our flat Christmas dinner and secret santa gift swapping! The dinner was a great success I must say, me and Molly used our initiative after I was super emo about having no pigs in blankets (how is it a Christmas dinner without?!) so we made our own and I felt like I had transformed into my nannie. We had stuffing, carrots, chicken and potatoes alongside the pigs in blankets and…

  • Blogmas: Day Seven!

    Hiiiiiiya! Well done to me for sticking this our for 7 whole days, it’s a Christmas miracle. What a fricken day I’ve had god dammit. I had about half an hour of sleep last night, got up at 4:30 and was out walking the streets of London due to tubes not running til 7 – gross. 5 Seconds of Summer are back in the country so of course my life has turned into an immediate mess. We made our way to the airport (reluctantly, knowing it would be a total waste of time) and there we were amongst hundreds of other girls waiting for them to arrive. They didn’t. They…

  • Blogmas: Day Five!

    Hiiiiii! I slept through my alarm, I have nothing to be up for (my TV is also still not working, heartbreak Shannon) but I like getting up at a good time, sleeping in sucks. Last night I went with a friend to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in Londons West End and it was honestly so much better than I thought it would be. The acting was good, the songs were good, the staging was good – everything was good! It was just way better than I thought and it reminded me how much I love musicals and I now want to make a thing of going as much…

  • What I’ve Learned In Semester 1 – Tips From Me To You.

    Hiiiiiii! Semester 1 is almost over and the past three months have been a very huge learning curve, it’s been an emotional roller coaster if I’m honest. I’ve met people, I’ve had little mental breakdowns and it’s just all been very strange – but also very good. I learnt a lot, some humorous things in fact that I’d like to share with you so heres what I have learned in the past three months and things that I simply want to pass onto you, like tips in a sense I guess? ENJOY.1. No one knows where Suffolk is despite it being an hour and a half drive away from London. 2.…

  • The Vamps Headline London!

    Last night my friend Libby and I got last minute tickets to go and see one of our favourite bands, The Vamps in London! The seats were right up in the circle and we were next to two very drunk and merry adults, so that was quite fun. You see, I’ve loved The Vamps for a super long time, since they were on YouTube and had no original songs…that was a long time ago in my eyes. I even made a blog post about their first single coming out way back when, you can read that here! They put on an amazing show, it was electric the whole time and…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Eight.

    Hiiii! Once again, I’ve not been in the best state of mind ever but I’m taking steps to make it better – working on CBT skills I once learnt and just generally looking after (or trying) myself. I’ll get there eventually, I must keep that mentality up! The past week has held some good times mind you and of course, it’s Positive Tuesday I’m going to share all of those things with you! You know, happiness is all about the little things isn’t it? Well, my flat mate and I ordered our first university Dominos and it was absolutely beautiful. Things like that are truly the most wonderful moments, anything…

  • One Woman Walk Across London.

    Helloooo! So last week I had a day off and wanted some time for myself, as you know I love autumn and I thought I might as well embrace it and go on a long walk. I walked all the way from my halls to Westminster, along the South Bank and Westminster Bridge and everything…I can’t say that was the most fun I’ve ever had as I was dodging tourists left, right and centre. I can now understand a typical Londoners anger at the everyday tourist, it is quite infuriating but we’ve all done it and I’m a small person so I could swiftly dodge being in the background of…

  • Autumn Has My Heart.

    Hiiii! October is well underway, in recent years it has become one of my favourite months of the year. The last few months of every year are always the best in my eyes, I just love the crisp mornings, the events and all that comes with them. I could happily live in autumn/winter all year round, screw summer give me hoodies or give me death (this was an extreme over exaggeration, don’t give me death at all just give me jumpers and artificial warmth from fires and stuff). Here are a few things I absolutely love about autumn… 1. The trees and all the leaves… IT’S JUST BEAUTIFUL, LOOK AT…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Seven.

    Hello! Yep, I missed another week didn’t I so let’s start a fresh, let’s not focus on the weeks I missed. This is now week 7 okay, but it’s probably 7 and 8 I don’t know…I’M CONFUSED, JUST IGNORE ALL OF THAT.  The past couple of weeks haven’t been my best mentally, I’ll be honest. I won’t lie and say I’ve been a radiant ball of positivity because I really haven’t. I’ve been having a tough time, questioning a lot of things but I’m figuring it out or at least trying. I’ll get back on my feet, I always manage to even when it seems impossible. If I’ve done it…
