All of my lifestyle blog posts… so basically everything!

Personalised Valentine’s Day Gifts with Snapfish

It’s that time of year again… Valentine’s Day is coming up. It’s a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. My boyfriend is in California until June, so we can’t be one of those annoying couples and go on a cute dinner / cinema date, but that hasn’t stopped me from procuring a few little gifts and a cute card for him, which will probably cost a fair bit to post to the US. Last year, my…

Amazon Student Kawaii Haul!

When shopping on Amazon, the possibilities are endless… books, stationery, video games, music, clothes… My Amazon wishlist is always increasing – you can literally get almost anything you want on there (including all the cute things a girl could dream of), and with a Prime account or Amazon Student, next-day delivery is free! If you haven’t heard of Amazon Student before, it’s essentially Prime, but half price for students, at only £39 a year. My boyfriend swears by it, and they even…

Thoughts on Detox Tea

January seems to be the month where everyone attempts to ‘sort themselves out’ by joining the gym, trying a new diet, or try the latest trend in weight loss, which seems to be ‘detox tea’ at the moment. As an avid tea drinker myself, I enjoy trying lots of new types, whether it’s green tea matcha, fruit flavours or your standard English Breakfast. Personally, I’m not trying to lose weight (I’m a size 8 anyway), but I did join the…

Weekly Vlogging & a new cover?!

You may or may not know that I’ve uploaded a couple of acoustic guitar / singing covers to YouTube… it’s been really fun so far and everyone has been lovely, so I decided to start vlogging weekly, and make a few other types of videos on my new second channel. The idea for vlogging stems from the fact that I’m living away from home in London, and my boyfriend is in California until June. I have a group of lovely friends, but…

The Tower of London!

Since my ‘Snapshots from Rome’ post in December was one of the most well-received blog posts I’ve ever written, I’ve decided to share a few more photography-orientated posts of the places I’ve been to. I’d been to the Tower of London before with my family, but visited it again in November with my Grandad and his brother, as they’d never been. I had a day off from uni, and we were lucky that it was sunny enough to wander around a…

Farfetch Curates Art | Book Review

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I enjoy reviewing the books I’ve read. Farfetch, a fashion website that sells products from over 300 independent boutiques, got in contact and asked if I’d like to review their new Farfetch Curates Art book. Of course I’m not really an art expert, and I typically read fiction or history books, but something intrigued me about the idea of combining modern art with fashion. 

My Favourite Blogs of 2015

For me, blogging was a big part of 2015. I got into blogging, and the blogging community a lot more than I did in 2014, and I’m really enjoying it. So I’ve decided to write a post sharing some of my favourite blogs from 2015 to start this year on a positive note. These aren’t in any particular order by the way, just the scattered thoughts of my brain… prepare yourself for a long list, I’ve tried to separate them…
