University | Reflecting On My First Year As A Mature Student


I'll admit, when I applied to uni for the second time at the age of 26, the words 'mature student' terrified me a little bit. Lets be honest, it doesn't sound like something you particularly want to be referred to as - right?

But after successfully surviving my first year of university as a mature (but mostly immature) student, I wanted to share with you my experience and the things I learned along the way!

Food | The Best Places To Grab Brunch In Birmingham


Anyone who knows me even just a little bit knows how much I bloody love brunch and how I'll never turn down the opportunity for a good coffee - probably with an added stack of pancakes on the side...

Back home there was a definite lack of places to eat the good stuff if you weren't up for chilling in a pub at 10am, so you'll understand how excited I was to move to Birmingham last summer and have a plethora of brunch options on my doorstep to choose from.

Life | 2019 So Far...


Hi there guys, it's been a minute hasn't it?

Life | Monday Motivation - My Goals For The Week #1


Unpopular opinion, but I bloody love a Monday.

I don't know if it's the fact that I work over a weekend or that it's my day off Uni but Monday is probably my favourite day of the week and I love treating every Monday as a fresh start, saying goodbye to the week before and onto something new.

Travel | A Beginner's Guide To Birmingham


As I mentioned in yesterdays post, myself and my other half moved our entire life from up north in Yorkshire to the bright lights of Birmingham and I never thought I'd picture myself here of all places but I'm slowly falling in love with the big city life and everything that Birmingham has to offer.

Life | A Year Off Blogging + A Huge Life Updates



Hello there, remember me? (Probably not.)

It's been a year and 2 weeks since I last posted on my little corner of the internet and what a year it's been!
I had such good intentions regarding my blog in 2018 - well, in the first week anyway - and I was adamant I was going to absolutely smash it, churning out content left, right and centre and be at the top of my blogging game for the time, well, ever.
