You know when life’s going well, you’re really happy at work and at home, but you’re also majorly tired and just in need of a break? Well, last weekend I had that feeling. Which is why I was so glad that I booked a weekend away in London for me and George during the Black Friday sales. Not only did we manage to get return train tickets for both of us from Leeds for £20, but I also got us a Travelodge room in Southwark, our favourite place to stay, for just over £100 for 2 nights (unheard of for a weekend in London!) I couldn’t wait to go back to one of my favourite cities to explore- let’s see what we got up to, shall we? View Full Post

Back in September, I made the decision to get my hair permed. My hair had been curly all my life, up until a couple of years ago when I wrote this post on my hair journey and shortly afterwards realised that my curls had actually gone, and they weren’t coming back. For about 6 months, I accepted that my hair would never be back to its former glory naturally, and took to straightening it and adding waves with my straighteners. But I felt like I had lost my identity- my curly hair has always been my trademark (I put it on the introduction to my CV, for God’s sake) and I knew I couldn’t carry on without it anymore.

So, I took the plunge and went for it! I’ve had my perm for long enough now to know how to take care of it, and I wanted to share my routine with anyone else thinking of getting a perm, anyone who has one, or any fellow curly-haired people out there who are looking for new products to try.

Happy New Year, one and all!

I’m so happy to be back to blogging again, and I intend to stick to it this time- and I mean it! I just wanted to write a quick little something about my blogging and YouTube plans for the year ahead, before getting stuck back into writing proper content again. View Full Post

Graduating from University of Leeds

So I can’t believe I can finally say this after four years, but last month I actually graduated! And the week before that, I got my first proper adult job as a Graphic Designer. Safe to say, life is moving pretty fast right now. Now, prepare for all the vomit-enducing clichés. My whole university experience really has been a rollercoaster, and as much as I’ve always said I can’t wait to graduate and get a job so I am no longer a poor student (extra poor because I actually have an adult house where I’m expected to cook proper food that didn’t cost 10p and didn’t once have mould on it)- I’m just a teeny bit scared that this is actually it. Like, it. So grab a cup of coffee, slice of cake, and an all-you-can-eat buffet, kids- this is gonna be a long one. View Full Post

Live & Eat Pie sign at Pieminister Leeds

It’s so good to be back to blogging, I can’t even tell you how long overdue this return to my blog has been! I have to apologise in advance, because I’m talking about food- again. I’m not gonna lie, these most recent posts are quite old, because I wrote them and then just got stuck in a blogging dilemma where I’d written loads of posts about food and nothing else, so then I just didn’t post any of them until now and it’s about 3 months later *facepalms*. Basically, I’m not worried about that anymore- I want to publish the posts that I’ve written so I can get on with writing new content with a clear conscience. Now, we all know I love food, and when I have something to celebrate it’s the first thing that comes to mind. So when I handed in my final ever university project, obviously a meal out with George was in order! I bought a Groupon deal for Pieminister in Leeds before we went to Dublin in April, because I’d always wanted to go and it was less than £17 for two mains and drinks with the voucher! View Full Post
