Les Misérables

Les Misérables

So recently, I got to go see Les Misérables at the Hippodrome, Birmingham. As a theatre lover, I’ve done a few posts about different shows I’ve seen, such as Wicked or The Wizard of Oz, and I’ve always said if I had more disposable income, going to […]

UCB Spa – Microneedling Treatment

Girls’ week in Tenerife

Anyone who knows me knows that even though I was born in Britain, grew up in Britain and live in Britain, I haven’t quite acclimatised to the chilly British air yet. Moreover, I don’t think I ever will. Because of this, I am always looking […]

A trip to Barcelona- Part 1

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote my last post, but I promise it was because I didn’t have time and not because I didn’t want to. Besides the time factor, I was also with a creativity block and all this stress accumulated, […]

How I spent my reading week

Hi everyone! I hope you are well and had a nice week off. Looking back on past reading weeks, I have found each year they mean something different. In my first year, reading week was about going home to see family and friends and tell […]

A day out in Warwick

One of those things was to visit Warwick, which is approximately […]
