UNIBOX – SEPTEMBER ARRIVAL

UNIBOX – SEPTEMBER ARRIVAL

So, I’ve never really got into all the subscription box vibe – mainly because I don’t need any more outgoings ha and also because I guess you never really know what you’re going to get and I certainly don’t need anymore belongings, especially ones I won’t use! However, I was pleasantly surprised when I received my first ever box, the September Unibox. As you all know this year I became a mature student, so this box couldn’t have come at a better time for me. The move has been daunting,…

TAKING YOUR FITNESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

TAKING YOUR FITNESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Fitness has become huge for many people in the world. Whether it’s for the sake of overcoming problems with your health or just to get fit and lean for the looks, there are many different reasons to take fitness seriously. However, for many people who have finally achieved their dream body or managed to overcome their health issues, there always seems to be something missing. The “what next” is where most people seem to stumble. Maybe they realised that getting fit didn’t actually make them happy, or perhaps after recovering…

REJUVENATING CHERRY CHOCOLATE BREAKFAST MUFFINS WITH ONE EARTH *

REJUVENATING CHERRY CHOCOLATE BREAKFAST MUFFINS WITH ONE EARTH *

As you all well know by now, I am not a breakfast person – I have to be awake for at least a few hours before I fill my belly! However, now I am back at uni and trying to work out before lectures, it’s crucial that I have my morning meal! Unfortunately, with time restraints, it’s not so easy to whip up smashed avo and scrambled eggs. Therefore, I have to get experimental with my breakfast, you know to make it interesting as well! So, I was thrilled to…

This can all start tomorrow, however, let’s see what’s been going on in my world shall we. After a nervous wait we finally got our beginning placements at…

A GUIDE TO THRIFTY LIVING WITH GIFFGAFF *

Do you know how to build your credit? No? Neither do I. Most millennials don’t know enough when it comes to saving and planning for their financial future! In fact most of us now live pay to pay with very little savings, whether it be for that big special day, an emergency washer or a house deposit. Now that is a scary realisation! To help people along GiffGaff have now created GiffGaff Gameplan. First they revolutionised the mobile industry and now they want to do the same with personal finance. We…

THE AUTUMN EDIT #1

THE AUTUMN EDIT #1

Sunday marked the Autumn equinox, which means au revoir sunnies and skirts and hello cosy knits and snug scarves. Personally, I am not ready to say goodbye to the heat, but I sure am a fan of a white hot chocolate and a spiced candle! It has been an incredible Summer for me, I have packed it full of amazing adventures visiting new places and embarking on new experiences. The chaos is not about to stop there, one is always a busy bee, and that hasn’t changed in the past…

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!…

MIDWEEK MUSIC VIBES WITH PEN AND PENCIL *

Let’s be honest time is this sneaky little guy that slips away from us! The amount of things we’d be able to achieve if we just had a little more time on our hands! Relationships is just one thing that can suffer from our busy busy lives and we need to re-engage with how important it is to spend time with lived ones. We all have those friends and family members that no matter how long we leave it our relationships stay the same but just because they can withstand…

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

As I’ve got older there is something I’ve learnt to do more and more. That is to enjoy my company. A little bit of self-indulgence and giving myself some me time! I must admit it took a while. I remember I always used to find it odd when my dad would head to a restaurant and dine alone or go gigging solo! I’d always thought to myself – what a strange man not wanting to share those experiences with friends. However, now I get it! He adores music and seeing…

ON THE GO MATCHA GUMMIES *

I am always on the go and forever searching for new ways to get that all needed energy boost! One that’s not full of rubbish, loaded with sugar or high in carbs! One thing that always worked as an energy booster for me, was a shot of matcha before the gym! I could run for hours! Indigo Herbs sent me some goodies and I was inspired to try my hand at some homemade matcha gummies – this way I could get me sweet fix and an energy boost at the…
