Your work – keep on top of it!

Your work – keep on top of it!

Hey everyone! So I’m just a few weeks into my course now and I’ve already had a light bulb moment, and that is this – student life is not a joke! Some students crave that university experience, and by that I mean the partying, drinking, living in […]

The Wilderness

The Wilderness

Hello! So I know that at the end of my last post I said I’d be taking you through some more of my summer, but when I was flicking through my pictures I realised I had so many from my dinner at The Wilderness that […]

UCB Spa – Microneedling Treatment

Two weeks ago I won a little competition posted on the UCB Spa’s Instagram account (@ucbspa) for their new microneedling facial treatment. The Spa is located in Richmond House on the ground floor, to the right of the stairs and to the back. After checking in […]

Beauty Must Haves 2019!

Beauty Must Haves 2019!

This week I wanted to post about the beauty products that I cannot live without. I normally wake up at 7 on a uni day, get to uni for 9, finish at 1, straight to work until 6:30, go to the gym and then usually […]

Reading Week!

This week has been a busy one. Working full-time, being a full-time student and still trying to remain somewhat fit, healthy and social has proved a little much so I am forever grateful for the timing of our reading week! Work has been mental so I’ve […]

Life as a mature student

Life as a mature student

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ve just turned 27… making me somewhat of a mature student. The first time I went to uni, I was 19 and didn’t have a clue what to do, so impatiently chose a course because everyone else looked […]

Applied Food and Nutrition – October Snippet!

Applied Food and Nutrition – October Snippet!

                  I thought I’d talk a little about my course this week. This semester I have some pretty good modules… Contemporary Eating Practices, Functional Foods and Food Product Design Development (being the favourite!) First I’d like to […]

College to University

College to University

With Freshers’ over and everyone moved in, assignments handed out and student loans dwindling, it really does feel like university life has started. By now everyone’s been to their course inductions, started classes and, if you’re anything like me, trying to desperately learn about Harvard […]
