Happy Sunday! Today I have a lot of studying to do, reading for my lecture tomorrow, and I’ve decided to bake some cupcakes with the kids I tutor next door, because it’s their birthday tomorrow (they’re twins). However, I’ve found a little bit of time to play with my new makeup… I recently won a Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette, thanks to the lovely Emma Inks, which arrived this week. I’ve been at uni and work all…

Yesterday my MA archaeology class took a trip to the Petrie Egyptian Archaeology musuem at UCL, and it was so wonderful that it has inspired today’s blog post about my ‘favourite museums in London’. Most tourists flock to Kensington for the Science Museum and Natural History Museum, but perhaps I’ll give you a few ideas for some other amazing museums in the city! The Petrie Egyptian Archaeology Museum, UCL They don’t have much space, but they have some pretty amazing…

I won’t lie, November has been pretty awful. It’s rainy and cold and I’m tired. Greek class is getting me down because it’s so hard, and I’m now stressing about trying to get my essays written before Christmas. On top of that, I was only given three days at work this month, and four days in December, which just isn’t enough money to live, let alone buy Christmas presents. I feel like I’ve done nothing this month except worry and…

I don’t know, it’s supposed to be lucky.   #1) Yorkshire Tea Yorkshire tea is definitely…

Apologies for the influx of holiday-themed blog posts, but I guess I’m just in the mood to get away from cold and rainy November London. I promise I’ve got one of those deep-and-meaningful 5am thoughts blog posts coming up soon, so prepare yourselves for that mess. Anyway, today is about fun things. I am yet to go on a ‘housemate holiday’ specifically, but I definitely think that having a holiday, or just a short trip with your uni friends helps…

Today’s guest post is something a little different, it’s all about motorhome holidays. I can’t say I’ve ever been on a motorhome holiday myself, but you never know! I’m always up for new adventures. I’d absolutely love to own (or rent) a retro-style VW campervan, and tour around Europe or Route 66, that’d be amazing. Perhaps I’ll do it one day. If you’re considering a similar kind of venture, check out the tips below. If you’ve got a driving license…

Hello blog friends. I’ve recently been thinking about things that I’m not very good at.. well, the things I can feasibly work on improving. I recently started a 6 week course of CBT for low self-esteem, and while I’ve only had one session so far, I’m keen to work on my mental health. So without further ado… 5 Things I’m Not Very Good At 1. Sticking to a Schedule I am incredibly forgetful. I’m the kind of person who buys…
