My Instagram was Hacked

My Instagram was Hacked. I’ve had a month away from blogging for various reasons (tl;dr: i’ve been really busy), and this was not the blog post I’d had planned for my return. I’ve got a blog post all written up and ready about what I’ve been up to this month and my new hair thanks to Rush Hair Enfield, but that’ll have to wait until tomorrow, because this is pretty damn important. My Instagram was hacked. I don’t know how,…

Making a Terrarium at Grace & Thorn with Obby!

I made a terrarium last Tuesday! The super-cool craft workshop booking website Obby* asked if I wanted to try out a class of my choice to review, and after much deliberation, I picked out a ‘Terrarium Tuesday’ workshop at Grace & Thorn, a florist based in Hackney and Brick Lane. Obby have curated hundreds of awesome London classes, varying from cooking and mixology to arts and crafts, and even more uncommon workshops like Spoon Carving, Wax Sculpture, and an Experimental Chocolate Tasting Club. If you’re…

The DC Super Heroes ‘Art of the Brick’ Lego Exhibition!

Last week, my boyfriend and I were lucky enough to attend the launch of Nathan Sawaya’s DC Super Heroes ‘Art of the Brick’ Lego Exhibition on the London Southbank. It was absolutely AMAZING – I took a ton of photos, filmed a vlog, and got a little tipsy on the champagne, while we had a gander at the array of awesome lego sculptures. This is certainly not a small show – it’s actually the world’s largest lego exhibition inspired by…

Laser Hair Removal with New York Laser Clinic

Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to try out laser hair removal with the New York Laser Clinic! I went down to their Baker Street clinic two weeks ago for a consultation with a test patch, followed by the first treatment a few days later. I’ve only had the first treatment out of four, so I can’t say much about the lasting effects or regrowth yet – I’ll make sure to update after I’ve had all the treatments – but I…

Good morning, today I’ve got a blog post for you that I’m pretty excited about… 10+ Beautiful Free Printable Planners! I’m always creating stuff on Canva, whether that be YouTube thumbnails, things for the blog, or even my CV (and my boyfriend’s). There are tons of beautifully-made premade layouts too, for pretty much whatever you want, so if you haven’t heard of or used Canva yet you need to get over there and try it. Did I mention it’s free?

Studying Forensic Science at Home with NCC Learning

I mentioned in my ‘Good Things That Happened in January‘ blog post that I’ve recently started a Forensic Science course online at home with NCC Learning. I was approached by NCC Learning a while ago, and asked if I’d like to take a Level 3 Diploma of my choice in order to review their online home learning system. The eager academic inside me leaped at the opportunity, because I absolutely love expanding my knowledge, and why not learn something new…

6 Harry Potter Spells We All Secretly Wish Were Real!

6 Harry Potter Spells We All Secretly Wish Were Real! We’ve all probably wished that the magic in the Harry Potter films was real more times than we can count. Flying broomsticks would definitely come in handy for avoiding crowded tube stations, casting spells would give us way more time to catch up on TV and chill, while Hogwarts is the kind of school than many of us dream of. The only place that any of this actually exists is…

Bikram Yoga London

Bikram yoga is my latest obsession. I was invited down for a taster session at Bikram Yoga London in Canary Wharf, fell in love with it, then signed up for their 20 days for £40 intro offer. I’ve been meaning to improve my fitness for such a long time (haven’t we all), and this was the kick I needed. Bikram yoga is more than just fitness or flexibility – it’s mindfulness and relaxation too, which is why I love it.…

Budget-Friendly Tips For Fashion-Forward Students

Yesterday I went to a vintage clothes sale at East End Vintage Clothing with a friend, where everything was £1. It was crazy. I picked up quite a few things, including a denim jacket, a few pairs of Levis’ jeans for my boyfriend, and even a Hollister jumper. I’m planning on filming a haul video for another blog post, so I won’t go into too much detail right now, but I thought it was good timing that today’s blog post…
