This weekend I came to Sheffield to visit family, and one of the first things on my list of things to do was to try something from the amazing 4 Eyes Patisserie. My Aunt and her partner rave about this fabulous company and are always giving me dessert envy over Instagram. When I arrived I… Continue reading Sheffield: 4 Eyes Patisserie
Politics. Yep you’re all probably sick of hearing about the General Election now….but guess what? I’m still gonna talk about it! I’m going to try to make this post as unbiased as possible, because even though I have extremely strong political views, the aim of this post is to encourage people to actually go out… Continue reading The Importance of Voting
Summer is upon us. Wales has seen some soaring temperatures over the last few weeks, and I guess we have to prepare for some more sun. I love the summer, the sun and warm weather just puts me in such a good mood, at least until I have to go outside. The summer gives me… Continue reading Summer Body Shaming

I want to read more. Yes, I am an English Literature student, and yes, I do read a lot. However, it’s very rare these days that I get to read for myself, to read books that I choose for once. For this reason, I have compiled a little ‘to be read’ list. – The Harry Potter series. … Continue reading My 2017 ‘To Be Read’ List
