THE AUTUMN EDIT #8

THE AUTUMN EDIT #8

So, this week hasn’t been the best for me and I’ve been feeling absolutely rotten! I had to take a say off school, leave early and cancel all my weekend plans which consisted of a trip to the Harrogate Christmas Markets with my bestie. As you can imagine I’ve been moping around most of the time – but managed to get some stuff done. Let’s see the Autumn Edit numero 8! Thanks to Moonpig, I am really in the festive mood this year! In fact today I went out and…

#MERRIERTOGETHER WITH MOONPIG

#MERRIERTOGETHER WITH MOONPIG

Generally, I must admit I am one of those people who likes to leave Christmas to the last-minute. I hate Nov Christmas ads with a passion and when they started so early this year I felt fire burn within me! Maybe it’s the years spent working on the Coca Cola Christmas truck, or the fact my papa is a complete and utter Scrooge. I just believe it all comes around a lot earlier than needs be. However, last weekend I was invited to Moonpig’s Christmas event making me feel less…

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

Veganism is thriving in popularity right now. Whether it be for ethical beliefs or dietary choices, there are more products becoming available on the market. Having family and friends that are veggies or vegan it’s great to see them having more options to choose from. Meaning they can wine and dine just as well as the rest of us. Although I admit to being meat-eater and loving it, I also am the first to admit that I think we live in a glutenous society and consume way more than necessary!…

THE AUTUMN EDIT #7

THE AUTUMN EDIT #7

Autumn is well underway so it’s officially time to hibernate right?! I wake up it’s dark, I go home it’s dark euugggghh. At least we get falling leaves, cosy jumpers and snuggle times! This week has been mega busy – I planned and taught my first lessons, had my first official observation and parents evening. Lets get on with the 7th instalment of the Autumn Edit to see what else has been going on. This week I found my new fave Autumn dish!! Every Wednesday I cook for my aunt…

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

So, around this time last year one of the most surreal and strangely incredible things happened. I ended up live on BBC Radio 5 Live. That may not be a bit thing to you guys, but for me it was HUGE. It all started a year ago back in April. I had moved back to my uni city of Manchester, although I had some family around, I lost most of my uni friends to their hometowns. So, when I moved back I didn’t really have many people to hang out…

TIPS AND TRICKS TO A PROPER SNOOZE WITH SLEEP WELL *

TIPS AND TRICKS TO A PROPER SNOOZE WITH SLEEP WELL *

I am a person who has always suffered from trouble sleep – whether it be restless nights or difficulty drifting off. I feel I’ve forgotten what it’s like to run on fully charged and my body has just caved in and has learnt how to function on about 6 hours a night! This often plays with my mood and the people around me end up with either a hyper sensitive and grumpy Lola or a high energy one powering through exhaustion. I must admit however after using my S Plus to…

THE AUTUMN EDIT #5 & #6

THE AUTUMN EDIT #5 & #6

Time for another Autumn Edit and yet again life has been hella crazy and I literally haven’t stopped! This season I must learn to relax a little and stop filling my diary otherwise I’m gonna run myself down. It’s been half term, and Halloween and Bonfire night. I’ve officially started placement and ventured to Leeds and Lyon and breathe! I was supposed to see Bonobo play in Manchester but decided to listen to my body and chill for the weekend. Honestly this half term couldn’t have rolled round quick enough…

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

This summer I experienced something incredibly surreal! You may have watched my live Insta, and if you did you would have seen I partook in an amazing activity. Something my mum has always wanted to tick off her bucket list! Yep, that’s right at 6am we floated off in a hot air balloon! I was lucky enough last year to win a virgin experience voucher, and so I decided to get in the brownie points and gift my mum with a trip for multiple Birthdays and Christmases – dam I just figured…

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

As I’ve been trying to get healthier recently, I am forever seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. Forcing myself for a run in the morning before placement meaning I can get home, cook and actually relax in an evening. However I don’t want to use all that time I’ve freed up cooking. I love cooking but so love relaxing too. When I get Thai or Chinese I love having chicken with cashews, so thought I could probably make something pretty similar at home and…

CACTUS CRAZY WITH MUSTARD *

CACTUS CRAZY WITH MUSTARD *

Let’s be honest hands up who isn’t a stationary mad?! Being a blogger, a student, and crafty crazy I’m a sucker for a pretty piece of kit to help with my organisational life! I’ve already mentioned Mustard before and how much I love it’s colourfully unique pieces. Well, my love for them has just grown! The other week I received a beautiful package filled with succulent stationary to make my desk and pencil case look on point. As a trainee teacher, I go into placement next week. We all must have…
