    Learn A New Skill

    We are told throughout life that it is important and good for us to master new things and learn a new skill. This has become especially apparent to me in my final year of University. You learn new social skills at Uni without even realising, because you are forced to make friends with a bunch of unfamiliar people and not only that, you have to learn to live with them. However these kinds of skills come quite naturally for a lot of people. I can’t say I found it particularly difficult to build a lovely support network of housemates and course mates who are my kind of people. What is…

    Sustainable Mother’s Day Gifts

    So with Mother’s Day fast approaching us this Sunday, I decided that today I would post a last minute gift guide with some thought behind it. So I’ve put together a sustainable Mother’s Day guide. Obviously we all want to treat our Mum’s to something nice for all that they do for us, but often people struggle to find that perfect gift.

The suggestions I’m giving today are all sustainable and ethical and…

A lot of my goals are very much University related, any student will tell you that around Easter is an absolute nightmare for deadlines and they all seem to come at once. So that leads me nicely onto my biggest and most important aim for the month. I want/need my…

    I’m Doing A Dechox (Again)

    Today’s post will just be a short one to quickly update you about something that I’m doing throughout the month of March. If some of you have been around for a while, 1 year to be precise, you may remember that last year I took part in the Dechox for the British Heart Foundation. Well I’m doing it again because it’s for such a great cause! I’m giving up chocolate for the whole of March in return for sponsorship for BHF. It’s an amazing charity and they are working to reduce the number of deaths from the UK’s biggest killer, Heart Disease. The charity helps fund research and support for…
