My go-to natural make up

I wish I could say I have people banging down my door for my opinion about anything makeup related but sadly I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I love makeup like the next girl or guy who has 20 lipstick shades of a lipstick but each one is ‘a different shade’. But I have always…

Sticky toffee pudding: a British classic ‘veganised’

Before anyone jumps at me, I am fully aware that ‘veganised’ is not a word in the English dictionary. However it won’t be long before it shall be, we can ‘veganise’ anything: from our decaf-no foam- almond milk latte’s to our desserts (apparently), such as this British classic. I’m not a vegan myself but I…

Walks in Leek

Yesterday myself and two of my coursemates/ best mates decided to venture out of our Uni bubble and take a walk near-by in Leek, Stafford.

Is beauty currency?

“My beauty, though but mean, Needs not the painted flourish of your praise: Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye “ Love’s Labours Lost, Shakespeare  This is one of my favourite lines ever written in literature, it speaks a profound truth in such a simple way. What I think Shakespear is trying to poetically explain…

A trip to Trentham

Saturdays for me usually comprise of doing absolutely nothing until mid-day, I know how stereotypical of me being a student. However, with assignment deadlines approaching I have been making more of an effort to have the ‘get up and go’ state of mind. So yesterday I woke up fairly early, had a shower and cracked on with…

What I Ate Today: Student life

Being back at Uni (for me) means different eating habits as being a student means shopping and cooking for one’s self – which I both love and hate. So if you have read any of my other ‘What I Ate Today’ post’s then what I eat at home is different to what I eat at…
