All of my lifestyle blog posts… so basically everything!

Snapshots from Rome!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I got to spend a few days in Rome before Christmas, and I’ve been spamming you with artsy photos ever since. I study Ancient History at King’s College London, and our department is amazing enough to offer an expenses-paid trip each year called the “Rumble Fund”, to see the ancient monuments we’ve been studying in real life. Our itinerary was jam-packed with museum visits, tours of Ancient relics, including some super-special places…

The Theatre Cafe!

After a long day of wandering around the Tower of London, a Christmas Market at London Bridge, Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Chinatown with my Grandad, we were desperate to stop off at a cafe for a drink. We came across the Theatre Cafe on Shaftesbury Avenue, a place I’d wanted to check out for a while, and oh boy it’s wonderful. The whole cafe is musical theatre themed, which is pretty much my idea of heaven. I love the musical…

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…

Fireworks at Victoria Park

Last night, my best friend and I went to see the firework display at Victoria Park. It was a bit of a trek to get to Mile End, but definitely worth it! We missed the beginning of the show because the tube line was ridiculously busy, but we managed to see most of it. I got a ton of pretty photos, and I couldn’t resist sharing a few in today’s blog post. 

5 Things That Made Me Happy in October

Usually I write a ’10 things that made me happy’ post each month, but to be completely honest I couldn’t think of 10 things this month. I spent most of October doing uni work (4 essays & an art commentary), but I cheered up by the end of the month because I went home during reading week and it was my birthday on Halloween! My Birthday / Halloween. Okay so this was the last day of October, but it still counts!!…
