As some one who has always struggled to maintain healthy sleep habits, I am always looking for new tips and tricks on how to sleep better. Recently, I have started using a new app, SleepTown, to help create better sleep habits and help me gain a full nights sleep. The main idea of the app… Continue reading Sleep Diary – Week One
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.

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.
As you will know if you read my most recent post, I recently took a trip to France. We spent most our time in Disneyland, but took five hours out from all the magic and happiness to spend a Saturday afternoon in Paris.

Usually people think of Disneyland as a place for kids, but two weeks ago, Molly and I packed up our suitcases and headed to France for a trip of dreams.
We have no idea when or how we ever became friends, but I also can't remember my life without you in it. (I definitely remember times when I hated you but I also remember that I was six years old.) There's no me without you and I hope you know that. When you make friends… Continue reading Dear My Best Friend,
When you finish college, almost everyone expects you to go to university. You're expected to get a degree, get a job, get a house, get married and have kids, and that's it, that's your life. We're programmed by our teachers to think that your only path is to apply through UCAS and pray you get the grades to meet your offers. For the girl who has wanderlust running through her veins and the world at her fingertips, that wasn't enough.
