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 into categories: 

Sunny Afternoon: The Kinks Musical

On Tuesday, I was lucky enough to see Sunny Afternoon, the West End musical about The Kinks. When Box Office UK asked me if I wanted to go to a show of my choice, of course I freaked out because I love musicals and there’s so many I want to see. We both enjoy music by The Kinks, and Sunny Afternoon was pretty much the top of our ‘to-see’ list, so that’s what we picked. 

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 that aren’t open to the public! Needless to say, we were all shattered by the end of the trip, and…

Christmassy Places in London

I wouldn’t say I’m as fanatic about Christmas as a lot of people are, but I do enjoy looking at pretty lights and decorations. Last year I went ice-skating, but didn’t really look at all the lovely displays, so I’ve made an effort to explore London as much as I can this year. 

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 posters on the walls, the drinks are musical themed, they play songs from shows… it’s perfection. You can also buy theatre…

Love You Better | Book Review

I was sent a copy of Love You Better by Natalie K Martin a while back to review, but I’ve been so busy with uni work that I only recently finished reading it. I grabbed it every time I had the opportunity, mostly on the tube, and while waiting for my food to cook, but it did take me a while to get through. “After a soul-destroying breakup with her ex, Smith, Effie Abbott has met the man of her dreams. She’s had the whirlwind romance and the fairy-tale wedding to the charming and suave Oliver Barton-Cole, and life seems firmly back…

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 frequently… but to my surprise I managed to get my hands on two of the dresses, one being my favourite…
