Today marks the beginning of National Apprenticeship Week- exactly the motivation I needed to get my bum in gear and write about my thoughts/feelings/experiences of my apprenticeship again! To start, I thought I'd answer what is probably my most frequently asked question on the topic: "Erm, like, how does it actually work?" I totally get … Continue reading independent learning
Hello! I'm always updating my playlist over on Spotify and as easy as it is to just embed it in a post and call it a day, I thought I'd talk about some of my favourite new songs! GSAP, Stormzy That's right- we're starting with a whole album! I feel like we've been waiting for … Continue reading playlist!
Good afternoon! A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed my fidget cube and haven't parted from it since. I have the cube with me at all times, and while it might be too soon to say whether it's changed my life, I definitely think it has helped over the last few weeks. I decided that next, I'd … Continue reading tangle toy- a review
Hello! I'm not a regular baker, but when I do, I rarely have any success (I'm going to blame my oven...). So, when I found this no bake recipe in the Good Housekeeping Super Student Grub cook book, I knew I was on to a winner.

Things are about to get topical... Good morning! Except it's not good- it's that dreaded day that comes around every now and then... A TUBE STRIKE! But not just any tube strike, it's maybe the worst I can remember. Probably no stations open in zone one (1. that lack of certainty could be a direct quote from … Continue reading tube strike
Hello! How is the Christmas-New Year slump treating you? How many boxes of Roses have you got through so far? Have you left the house yet? I'm loving this time off, approximately three and hell no. This time last year, I wrote an Anti-Resolutions post (tldr? I explained exactly why all my resolutions were stupid … Continue reading resolutions
Hello peoples, In case my consistent tweets haven't told you- here's a blog post on it: I did a guest post for Exposing Pr all about my apprenticeship yesterday. If you'd like a little teaser, the post features these words: coffee, YouTube, scholarship, stop, press, creative and whim. It also has this picture: If I've managed … Continue reading a guest post.
Hello! I write this post as I dust off a well-deserved, post Christmas wrapping Nandos (thanks Dad, lots of love). This particular Nandos was my first non-veggie in over a year because for the first 11 and a bit months of this year, I went meat-free. I am an animal lover- I've seen Cowspiracy and … Continue reading vegetarian?
