Money Saving Tips for Students

As you probably know, it was Black Friday yesterday, and everyone (myself included), spent far too much on things we don’t need, along with some Christmas presents for family/friends to ease our spending guilt… Just me? Okay then. I figured it was perfect timing to share some of my best money saving tips for students (I’m a third year student in London, I have plenty of experience now), and an infographic from train operator Transpennine Express with 9 money saving tips*. By…

The Changing Look of Music

You all probably know by now that I’m really into music, I studied music for A-Level, and I play the guitar and sing (I upload covers occasionally to YouTube… when I remember). I’m also interested in fashion, so I love looking at how fashion and music influence each other, and how an ‘image’ can be so important for musicians. Think of Elvis, David Bowie, The Beatles, Freddie Mercury, Madonna… their images are almost as famous as their music! This is…

Where I’ve Been

I haven’t posted a blog in over two weeks. That’s pretty terrible, even for me, but I’m trying to get back in the swing of things. SO HEY, HI THERE, IT’S ME, I’M BACK. WHOA. These past few weeks have entailed lectures, essays (I handed one in today), presentation preparation, internship applications, a few nights out with friends, trying to cope with being a final year student, so general ‘stress’ I suppose. THEN my Macbook charger broke, so I had…

How To Survive Your First Student Home

I don’t know about you, but I had a few surprises when moving from student halls, where everything is included in one bill, to living in my first student home this year. Electrical Safety First* got in touch, asking if I’d share their infographic on surviving student homes, which is perfectly timed, as I’ve been living in my first student home for just over a month now and need all the tips I can get! Overall, I’m definitely enjoying the…

Self-Care at University

Self-care is important, especially when you start university, where it can be hard to look after yourself, eat the right foods and get enough sleep, combined with sharing a living space with other students. Fresher’s flu is a real thing! I’m a third year, and I’ve had fresher’s flu for the past week – it hasn’t been pleasant, but it’s given me an excuse for plenty of self-care. As I mentioned in my last blog post, I haven’t been well…

10 Happy Things So Far in October

It’s already two weeks into October and I haven’t blogged since September 28th. October is usually my favourite month, because I love the cosiness of Autumn, hot drinks, fluffy pyjamas, and of course the excitement of Halloween (which also happens to be my birthday, and I’m 21 this year). However, so far this month I’ve just been tired and ill, with barely enough energy to go to lectures, let alone study after. I’ve probably spent most of my time sleeping…
