My Favourite Museums in London

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!

5 Things I’m Looking Forward To

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…

My 7 Favourite Teas!

It’s no secret that I love tea. I have a ridiculous tea collection, thanks to my lack of self-control in supermarkets, and the awesome Teatourist subscription box. I have all different kinds of tea; green, black, rooibos, fruit, herbal… it’s a bit of a problem, and takes up a whole shelf of my cupboard. So here are 7 of my favourite teas… why 7? I don’t know, it’s supposed to be lucky.   #1) Yorkshire Tea Yorkshire tea is definitely…

Planning the Ultimate Housemate Holiday!*

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 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…

Motorhome Holidays for Beginners: Things You Need to Know

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…

5 Things I’m Not Very Good At (and can work on)

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.

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…

Beauty Treatments I’d Like To Try

Micropigmentation / Microblading I’m lazy AF, so the idea of having perfect filled-in eyebrows when I wake up is the dream. I’m not completely sure whether to go for micropigmentation or microblading, but after I saw that Bethan Leadley (musicalbethan on YouTube) got hers done, I want them! I’m currently trying out Wunderbrow, but it’s very messy and difficult to use. Damn these patchy eyebrows. Laser Hair Removal I’ve written about how I got to try out laser hair removal…
