The Chi Chi London £1 Dress

  I’m always lusting over Chi Chi London’s gorgeous dresses, and entering their Twitter competitions in an attempt to win one, but alas, I’ve not been able to get my hands on one. Until now. A few weeks ago, Chi Chi did a crazy sale where they sold 5 of their beautiful dresses for only £1. Yes, one single British pound. Each dress was released on consecutive days, everyone went crazy on Twitter with the #OnePoundDress hashtag and the website crashed…

House of the Rising Sun

House of the Rising Sun I finally did it. I just uploaded a singing video to YouTube. A combination of insecurity and being busy with uni work are my excuses for not doing it sooner. I’ll be uploading more videos hopefully quite regularly, because why the hell not? Check out my cover of House of the Rising Sun by Animals if you want, apologies for the car beeping in the background somewhere near the beginning… London is never quiet. Make sure…

I Am Malala | Book Review

Malala Yousafzai, known as the girl who ‘stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban’ at the age of 15 in 2012, has written an autobiography entitled I Am Malala, about her life experiences so far. Her story is both heartbreaking and empowering, and it really exemplifies the importance of educating girls – her father was the headmaster of a successful school, yet her mother is illiterate. Malala is a Pashtun girl from Pakistan, and she explains that most girls aren’t…

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland!

Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland opened a few days ago, and I was keen to see it, so when my friend was feeling a bit down last night, we went and spent a few hours wandering around and taking a ridiculous amount of photos. It definitely cheered us up, it was so pretty and totally festive!

The Cereal Killer Cafe

On Monday, my friend and I decided to go and explore Shoreditch a bit because we both had a free afternoon. I go to Camden a lot, but hadn’t really been to Brick Lane, or Shoreditch in general other than clubbing. I’d read that the biggest vintage store in Europe, Blitz London, is there so of course we had to go and check it out. After spending way too much money on vintage clothes and vinyl, we stopped at the…

100 Things To Do Before High School (+ Giveaway!)

I’m one of those people who likes to have a tv program or music on in the background while studying, tidying, getting ready, eating food… basically all the time. This means I always end up running out of things to watch and looking for new tv shows, particularly light-hearted funny ones. Anyway, Nickelodeon asked if I’d like to review their new show ‘100 Things To Do Before High School’, and because I used to love Nickelodeon when I was younger, I…

A Night time Stroll in London

After the firework display in Victoria Park on Saturday, my friend and I decided to venture into Holborn for dinner, followed by a cute night time stroll in London. I took lots of photos during our little wander, so I figured I’d share them on the blog. We ended up walking past Somerset House, over Waterloo bridge, then along Southbank until eventually ending up at Westminster. I took a lot of photos because London is so pretty at night, especially with all the…
