A Week of Relaxation – Cala Bona

At heart I believe I am such a city girl. There is nothing I love more than going on a city break and exploring new places and experiences new cultures. However, I do also jump at the opportunity to sit in the sun and do absolutely nothing. So me and my uni best friend Colleen…

A Short Break to Budapest

I am lucky enough to have parents that love travelling and exploring new cities just as much as I do. Yesterday I got home from the most incredible 3 days in the capital of Hungary – Budapest. I had no idea what to expect before going, but it exceeded my expectations. Before going, my mum…

Affordable Vintage Fair Lincoln

For many students, weekends are often occupied by being hungover from Superbull or Propaganda the night before, working our weekend shifts, or working on assignments. But, for once, this weekend I had the pleasure of being hangover free and deadline free, so I took this opportunity to go to the Affordable Vintage Fair at the…

Things to do this Summer…

As I am nearing the end of my first year of University, summer is fast approaching. A summer with no assignments or deadlines, complete freedom! I’m honestly not quite sure how to feel about having over 3 months off away from my lovely second home in Lincoln, but I am excited for all the things…

Afternoon Tea Anonymous – Bunty’s Tea Room

Hi, my name is Bex (“Hiiiii Bex”) and I am here today because I’m addicted to afternoon tea. Could I get anymore British if I tried? But the proof is in the pudding, I really do love me an afternoon tea trip. Scones, finger sandwiches, macaroons, mini tarts, mousse, cupcakes, and lots and lots of…

My Week in Pictures – New York

I am fortunate enough to have travelled to a lot of places in my 19 years on the earth. My family and I absolutely love travelling and exploring new cities and cultures. My favourite city to visit is, without a doubt, New York City. I visited the city for the first time when I was 13, then…

Body Confidence

Lately, on Instagram I have noticed a fair few posts from a wide range of people discussing body confidence and how people feel about themselves and this makes me hugely happy. In fact, when I was scrolling through Carrie Hope Fletcher’s Instagram today, I saw a bikini mirror selfie she posted with a huge paragraph…

My First Tattoo Experience

I’ve always wanted a tattoo but, like most people, struggled to choose what I wanted. I always felt like your first tattoo should mean something to you, regardless of how significant the meaning is, that is personal to you. I dug through Pinterest for hours searching for that ‘perfect’ tattoo idea, and eventually found a…

Why join a society?

I am here today to bring you another student life post. I like to use my experiences at university to hopefully help better future freshers’ experiences at university, as I know it is a daunting experience. I want to expand on a point I made in my “How to survive your first semester at university”…

American Beauty – A Review

For the finale in my series of reviews throughout the month of March, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss my favourite film of all time – American Beauty. At the opening of the film, we are looking at a standard, bird’s-eye-view pan of American Suburbia. Fresh green lawns, lined with white picket fences,…

La La Land – A Review

When I first saw the adverts for La La Land, I was very apprehensive as to how this film was going to be perceived. It looked like a very cheesy, old school musical but set in modern day, which I personally thought would be difficult to make successful. The star studded protagonists (Emma Stone and…

An American in Paris – A Review

As you all are aware, I am a huge musical theatre lover. My obsession for musicals and performing was really elevated when I watched “Singin’ in the Rain” for the first time when I was around 12 years old, seeing Gene Kelly’s talent and passion for dance enlightened me. So this quickly followed with me…
