To Mum, thank you

March 26, 2017 Lifestyle

Today is mothers day, a day to take a moment and be thankful for all of the things that our mothers do, and have done, for us over the years. It has become a very commercialised day, the shops go into pink overload, flowers overflowing and chocolates stacked high but underneath this highly stylised image of motherhood, there still remains the original intentions of the day. A chance to say thank you. So thank you mum, for putting your career on hold,Read More

Write a bucket list and chase life again

March 23, 2017 Lifestyle

  Whenever I used to think of bucket lists I thought about the terminally ill, the people who have been given a very limited time on this earth and were desperately cramming in memories and experiences before their time was up. Perhaps it’s the realisation that time is flying by ever quicker, that I’m about to leave university and be a fully fledged adult (kind of) but either way I suddenly had this yearning to make the most of myRead More

Graduates Lacking Experience

March 22, 2017 Lifestyle

  I’ve been applying for a lot of jobs recently most of which are in the Public Relations sector, and I’ve received an equal number of rejections. My most common explanation, if one is given at all, is a lack of experience. When writing my cover letter and CV everything is very formal, don’t write anything unnecessary, keep it business-like, when I read it back I sound like a robot. This is just a bit of fun but also a bitRead More

I’ve had a blogging revelation!

March 21, 2017 Lifestyle

I’ve sat down and written the first few lines of this post several times, only to repeatedly delete them and start again. For some reason, I’ve found it hard to find the words to express myself and have decided that it’s easiest if I start from the beginning and with the utmost honesty. When I first started this blog I always had a potential audience at the back of my mind. I was trying to produce content that I thoughtRead More

Clean and Green – Interior Design Inspiration

March 8, 2017 Lifestyle

I’m rapidly approaching a time in my life when I will finally have control over my living space and that means one thing in my book creating a space that reflects the inner workings of my mind. I would label my style as minimal and bright but with a need for fluffy texture and lots of green plants. Throughout university, I began to develop my own style, minimal, bright and clean with metallics and green as primary accent colours. I thriveRead More

The Three Signs of Spring…

March 6, 2017 Lifestyle

I honestly don’t have a favourite season, in fact, I can find something that I love about them all. However, spring for me has a few very special feelings and emotions attached to it, memories and tingles that recur each year that let me know that spring has sprung and I’m going to share a few of those with you. Firstly, daffodils, I love daffodils. They are and forever will be my favourite flower. There’s something about their ‘oh so happy’ goldenRead More

The best of London…in Tenterden – Bluebell Coffee House

March 1, 2017 Lifestyle, Review

Having lived in London for the past three years, with a saturation of fabulous coffee shops, I usually find myself a bit disappointed with the countryside café scene. On my most recent visit back home, a chance visit to Tenterden resulted in the discovery of a café that felt like a home away from home. Bluebell Coffee House, nestled down Sayers Lane just off of the high street, has brought all the elegance and standards of the best London cafésRead More

“Do you want to go to the seaside?” – Camber Sands, Rye

February 24, 2017 Lifestyle, Travel

Whenever I go to the seaside I just can’t stop myself from singing those reminiscent lyrics from the Kooks “Do you want to go to the seaside?”. Growing up near to the coast means that I am not short of memories to reminisce about, sledging along Bexhill promenade in the snow, visiting the ice cream van and then trying to fit the whole Fab ice lolly in my mouth to get a bit of all the flavours. Being that insaneRead More

5 Things That University Has Taught Me About Life

February 12, 2017 Lifestyle

Sitting in Cafe Nero along the Strand, accepting my place at Kings College London was a surreal experience. I’d travelled all the way to London, fell in love with the idea of the ‘big city’ and perhaps rather brazenly accepted my offer using my phone whilst sipping a cappuccino in Nero’s. If you’d have told me then that those 3 years would fly by I’d probably have laughed, nothing had ever flown by, except birthdays and Christmas, my education had beenRead More

January Favourites 2017

February 10, 2017 Favourites

January is over and I am not sad to see it go. Bring on February, Shrove Tuesday, daffodils and lambs. We need some positivity in our lives! This month sucked, end of discussion. I fell well and truly into the January blues as the magic of Christmas faded into the background and the inauguration of Donald Trump left me questioning humanity. Those close to me will know that I comfort shop, as well as comfort eating, comfort shopping is the act ofRead More
