Things We Just Can’t Live Without

(this is a guest post) It’s good to save money where you can, but for many people, there are some things people cannot simply live without. It could be that those things are what helps to bring in the money in the first place, or perhaps it’s how they relax and unwind. Maybe they just have some form of sentimental value.

My 4th Year Student Bedroom in East London!

You probably already know that I’m studying an MA at the moment because it’s all I talk about! This is my fourth year as a student in London, so my fourth student bedroom. I spent my first year in King’s College student halls (New Cross), second year in intercollegiate halls (Tottenham Hale) with a few pals from first year, third year in a Mile End maisonette, and now I’m in a flat in Hackney. I loved living in New Cross,…

Our trip so far has consisted of the typical tourist sites including the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill,  Vatican, Trevi Fountain and all that jazz, along with incredibly cheap (and…

Why are Medical Negligence Claims in the UK on the Increase?

This year I’ve decided to share some more serious topics on this blog. I have written a few posts about mental health at university, saving money, and living more sustainably, but I’d like to venture further. To start this off, here’s a guest post about why medical negligence claims are increasing in the UK. I found this an interesting read, so I’ve decided to share it, and just for clarification, these are not my opinions and I am not an…

Dream Garden Wishlist

*this is a guest post Brief intro from Emily: A long, rambly post about where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to is coming very soon (hopefully tomorrow), but today is something much more lighthearted. Since moving to London 4 years ago, the one thing that has been missing from each of my homes is a garden. I’m lucky enough to live right by Victoria Park and Regent’s Canal, but it’s not the same as having your own garden.…

New Year, No Smoking: Vapes with Flavour Boss!

Happy New Year! Today’s blog post is all about some vape products I’ve been trying out from FlavourBoss over the last month, so whether you’re a vaper, a smoker, or just curious, keep reading for my thoughts. If you do smoke, what better time to quit than the New Year? I have never personally been a smoker, but several of my friends are. I often like to bring along a vapouriser with nicotine-free liquids when we go out, because it…
