Just before Christmas, I was invited to check out Tibits*, a vegan and vegetarian restaurant. I took my best friend Rhea to their Heddon Street branch (near Regent Street in Central London), and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The food was delicious, I loved the concept, and they had some pretty awesome cocktails (not to mention the Baileys Hot Chocolate). We had a cute table by a window in the corner, complete with a pretty candle (my picture of…

Just before Christmas, I was invited to Dr. Sarah Shah’s bespoke aesthetics clinic* in Central London for a treatment of my choice to review. Upon browsing her website and reading many positive reviews, I came across the concept of a ‘non-surgical’ nose job/reshaping. “WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT?!”, I hear you ask. Well, let me enlighten you and share my experience… I have been unhappy with my nose since around the age of 11. I blame my Italian grandfather for my…

Happy 2017! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged yet this year… Oh wait, I’ve had a ton of uni work to do. Today’s blog post is all about sticking to a budget, which I think is relevant for a lot of us at this time of year (particularly me, I’m a broke student who spent too much on Christmas presents). I’m definitely planning on budgeting a lot more in 2017, because I’m in my final year of uni, London is expensive,…

As we verge on the end of 2016, I feel like it’s time for one of those sentimental, nostalgic blog posts about the awesome memories I’ve made this year. So many awful things have happened this year, with Brexit, the US election, terrorist attacks, hate crimes, the deaths of gay icons Bowie, Prince and more recently George Michael… it’s a struggle sometimes to remember that good things also happened in 2016. Rather than listing my best memories of this year,…

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I’ve been keeping off social media as much as possible over the holidays, and I have lots of uni work to do, so the blog is looking a bit bare, but FEAR NOT, I have lots of awesome blog posts coming up! Two weeks ago I returned from a wonderful trip to Athens, and I still can’t believe I even had the opportunity to go! While in Athens, we took…

An Athenian Photo Diary Last week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Athens and Delphi with my King’s College London classmates, as part of our Classical Greek Art and Archaeology module. We had an absolutely wonderful time, words cannot describe how amazing it is to see all of the things we’ve spent years studying in real life. Last year we went to Rome, which was equally amazing, but I’d never visited Greece at all until now, so it was…

Flying Vinyl: An Alternative Record Subscription! I first heard of Flying Vinyl a few months ago in NME magazine, and I thought it was a brilliant idea. I forgot all about it, until I opened an email from them asking if I’d like to review November’s edition. Of course I squealed with excitement and quickly emailed back with a big YES. Flying Vinyl is a vinyl subscription service in which you receive a selection of the best new alternative music…

Hiiiiii, this is my first blog post of December, whoa. I’ve been really busy with lectures/deadlines/dissertation things recently, and I’m off to Athens this weekend for an art & archaeology trip! Expect lots of pictures of Athens over on my Instagram, and of course I’ll write a blog post and vlog a bit too! On Sunday night I went to Quizney in Camden, run by Laila (who blogs over at Tapeparade) and her fellow Quizcats, an awesome jazzy band who…

I’m getting really into blogging about music again, so today I’m here with another music-related post. This time I’m sharing my top five music experiences with you, in collaboration with independent online music news magazine Get To The Front*. It was so hard to narrow my music experiences down to five, but here they are… in no particular order! 1. Singing on BBC Radio Devon – I’ve performed many times, including a Mozart aria at my school speech day (which…
