Ever since I decided to eat a little healthier, breakfast is quickly becoming my favourite meal of the day. And, with the ever growing phenomenon of brunch, scrambled eggs are becoming more and more popular! Here’s a recipe that I’ve created (yep, I made it up) for those days when you have the time to make something a little fancy!
- 2 Kale Leaves
- 1 1/2 handfuls of spinach
- Soy sauce
- 2 eggs
- 2 slices of brown bread
- 100ml milk
- Cooking oil (I use coconut)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 pinch water cress (optional)
- 1 heaped tbsp garlic and herb Philadelphia (optional)
Ok, this sounds like a lot of ingredients, but this is a super simple recipe, trust me! Plus, it means that you can have 3 of your 5 a day at breakfast!
Roughly chop kale and spinach. Fry in a pan on a medium heat for around 5 minutes (or until it has shrunk but still maintained crispness) Continue reading “Loaded Scrambled Eggs On Toast Recipe “
So, I am sick and bloody tired of the English degree stereotypes. I study an English degree, and I love it, so I thought I would write a post about what it’s REALLY like to study, and what the workload is like. Obviously, experience will differ university-to-university, but this is MY experience of being an English student.
First thing’s first, there’s a lot of essays and a lot of reading. Reading is a given, but some people seem to think this is all we do. It’s not, we have a lot of hard work too. And, if we’re studying linguistics (like me!) we also have scientific research to do. So, we have to master both formats (report and essay) which can be a little tricky.
And, it’s not all just essays and exams. We have online tests and presentations just like any other subject.

See, I always do these at the beginning of the season, so really it’s more like my favourites from summer. But whatever, we will roll with it.
Basically, this is that post where I tell you what I’ve been loving for the last three months. And, boy, are you in for a treat, because I have been loving soooo many good things this month! Ok, let’s go…
- CurlME Brush Set from Pro Blo
I was sent this set for use in a video tutorial, and I haven’t stopped using it since! I bloody love it. I’m not going to go into much detail, because I have a whole post AND a video dedicated to it, so, if you so wish, you can see them HERE.
I know, I know, I am very behind with this hype. But season 2 & 3 have come onto Netflix, and I haven’t ever seen it before, so who can blame me for realising how much I’ve been missing?!

Something that I need to be honest with myself about is that I feel like I don’t fit in. I’ve just come back to uni, I have some really great friends, but I don’t feel like I fit into a box.
So many of my friends have various different cliques, and I feel conflicted because I don’t. I thought the first year of university would be the best year of my life, but in reality it wasn’t great..
I mean, part of that was because of all of the personal things that were going on. But, the other part was definitely because I felt like I didn’t fit into a friendship group. So many people on my course had cliques that they ALWAYS sat with in lectures, and even when I got close to somebody I felt like I could never be a part of that. I felt left out, to be honest, and it really got my down.
But I’m starting second year with a fresh set of eyes and a healthier mind frame. The reason I don’t have huge friendship groups is because I like low maintenance friendships, and that’s perfectly okay! Ever since school, I’ve just not been able to be friends with a specific clique, I like to be friends with everyone, but this means that I don’t tend to form deep bonds.

Hello, hello, hellooooooooo!
So, if you follow my insta stories (which you totally should), you may know that recently Zack and I had the pleasure of attending The National Wedding Show at the NEC in Birmingham! The tickets for this were actually kindly gifted to them by my lovely blogger friend Abbey after she won them in a competition, and how could we say no to such an amazing offer?!
If I’m honest, we didn’t really know what to expect. As we are at the early stages of planning still, we haven’t even attended a wedding fayre yet, so I was worried initially that the wedding show might be a little overwhelming. But, we managed it and we had an amazing day! Continue reading “The Wedding Diaries: The National Wedding Show at NEC Birmingham 2017!”
Ok, I’m going to give this a go. Am I crazy doing this, AS WELL as blogmas? Yup. Am I going to give it my best shot anyway? Yup.
One thing that I will say about this though is that, although I’m going to give it a good go, I’m not going to stress if there’s a day that I simply don’t have content for. It happens, and that’s ok! If I have to give up this challenge for health, or university work load, reasons, then so be it! I’m just going to go with the flow for now, and enjoy creating content that I love.
So, welcome to blogtober 2017, and I hope you enjoy the next 30 days of posts!
It’s probably my biggest, unconscious fear, yet I have never addressed it…
I’ll admit it, I am absolutely terrified of falling behind. Now this may be in any aspect of my life whether it be blogging, university, friendships, Instagram, trends; I am just scared of not being up to date. I used to think this was a good thing. I’d do my homework the night I got it, I’d blog and blog and blog and push myself to make sure my content went up on time, and I’d spend time that I didn’t have trying to read the latest book or watch the latest film to make sure I was ‘up to date’. Continue reading “The Fear Of Falling Behind”
Hello again, old friend.
You began on Friday, so it is now officially your time of year. I’m really looking forward to you this year because, don’t tell the others, but you’re my favourite. There’s something oddly satisfying about the leaves falling off of the trees, to me it symbolises hope for new growth and change, and the decay of old values and beliefs. One of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite books is ‘Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall’. It just speaks to me, that life can begin again and changes can be made, to hopefully be better next time.
Autumn also symbolises many new beginnings. It’s the season when I began all of the different years at school, and my first year at university. This year it symbolises the new beginning of entering my second year, and of all of my grades from now on counting towards my final degree. I want to do better this year, autumn, and I feel like a good beginning is the way to kick start that. Continue reading “A Letter To Autumn”
Call me nostalgic or whatever, but this is something that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. I’ve gotta admit, sometimes I miss the days of throwing on a bright coloured top, some neon plastic beads with some shorts and feeling like I could rule the world. I mean, let’s be honest, I would probably never wear this kind of outfit ever again, but there are some trends that I would LOVE to make a comeback.
A lot of people hate these, but as someone that loves a good dress/skirt but is also V scared of it blowing up in the wind, I miss these a lot. Please make them fashionable again?

I’m going to be honest, this is something that I struggle with a lot. But, it’s been highlighted even more to me since I’ve been blogging.
All too often, I think it’s polite to just say yes. Whether that be to a friend who wants to hang out (even if I don’t feel up to it), a blog opportunity (even if I have a lot on at the moment and will struggle to complete it), or a family member asking to add people to my guest list (if I wanted them to be invited, they would be). I’ll admit it, I’m just rubbish at saying no. But, I’ve come to realise this past year or so, that saying no is a bloody art form, and a life skill that must be acquired in order for me to take control of my own life. So, I’m writing this post with a few points on how saying ‘No’ can actually be the politest thing you can do…
- Saying no doesn’t have to come across rude
If in a professional email, make sure to make it clear that you’re flattered by the opportunity and would consider it in the future. It doesn’t always have to be a definite ‘no’, sometimes it can be a ‘no-for-now’. Continue reading “The Art Of Learning When To Say No”
