Between travelling and packing and late night adventures with my friends, I've not been able to update my blog as frequently as I would've liked this summer. If I were to write about everything I've done in as much detail as I usually do, and then schedule all the post in weekly intervals, I think… Continue reading The Summer of Seventeen
I come from the North West of England so we're approximately 200 miles away from London. According to many people in Texas, we live in the suburbs of London. We definitely in no way live anywhere close to the suburbs of London, saying we live in the suburbs of Manchester is still pushing it a… Continue reading 24 Hours in London
The first time I visited New York, I was 13 years old. As soon as my feet hit the pavement, I felt at home. I think I managed to pick up an American accent by the time we'd walked the 10 blocks from Penn Station to our hotel. That week we did everything a tourist… Continue reading A New New York Adventure

I've probably said this before but my daily routine hasn't changed much since I started college in 2015. As a lot is about to change in these next few years, I thought it would be interesting to document a random day in, at aged 18, as I am preparing to take my A Level exams,… Continue reading A Day in My Life
On Saturday the 17th of March 2007, my family and I spent the evening sat on the couch channel hopping until we found something to watch. I wasn't particularly interested until we came across the Dancing on Ice series two finale. Clare Buckfield was flying like an angel over the ice on a harness and little eight year old me thought it was the most magical thing I'd ever seen. According to my mum, I jumped up on the couch and screamed "I want to do that!"
If any of you aren't new to my blog, you may know that back in January I wrote a post about how I have been accepted into Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. Earlier this month my mum, dad and I took a trip out to the city to explore a bit more and spend some time looking at what we could see of the accommodation.
