Blueberry Burst

This little pot of cooked Blueberries, a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of lemon zest is a great little dessert that doesn’t leave you feeling guilty. It tastes amazing and you can whip it up in seconds. I definitely reccomend it as a Summer treat! Advertisements

Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray

I have naturally straight hair, which is really fortunate but at the same time it can be difficult to work with because they’re silky and flat. But ever since I bought the Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray, I can do more with my hair and make it look voluminous. Now I can do loose…

POND’s Moisturiser

Pond’s Creme is a facial moisturiser containing aloe vera. My mum’s friend swears by it so I thought I’d give it a try, as it was really cheap like most of their products. I tend to put it on at night before going to bed, so when I wake up in the morning my face…

R O M E

Last week-end I went to Rome for a day and a half to see the Six Nations Rugby match so I did not have a lot of time to see Rome. However, I got the chance to visit the Galleria Borghese, situated in the Villa Borghese north of the city. This museum holds some of…

Eating out in B O L O G N A

Here is my final post on the best places to go to in Bologna. Here’s a few restaurants that offer different types of dishes within a reasonable price range, either regional or from other parts of Italy. These restaurants are all really lively as you would expect in an Italian restaurant and welcoming to foodies…

Bars in B O L O G N A

Bologna has a lively nightlife with some great bars that are definitely worth visiting. There is a range of bars to choose from that will tickle everyone’s fancy. The price list of alcoholic beverages doesn’t tend to vary in Bologna, so you should be expecting to pay 4-5€ for a beer, 5-7€ for wine and…

Coffee in B O L O G N A

I lived in Bologna for five months and only posted about it once, shamefully! But now I have time and a big enough knowledge of where to go to so my following posts will be on which cafes, restaurants and clubs to go to whilst visiting Bologna. It has such a great amount of choice…

What you make of your failures

‘It’s not what you make of your successes, it’s what you make of your failures’. -mummy A few weeks ago I did an exam and failed it miserably. It was a horrible feeling, like how you feel when you’re heartbroken and your chest is tight. I went straight home trying to retain my tears on…

Islands

My thoughts are like islands.  What goes on there is unbelievable. It’s paradise. Sometimes the water hits hard against the rocks and the wind roars. After the storm blows over, it’s complete serenity. There’s a warm breeze and the blue ocean surrounding the islands barely moves. Everything is still and quiet. But these islands are…

3-Minute Clay Mask

I previously wrote a post on the pomegranate and grape heat face mask and promised you I’d post about this face mask, which is my favourite! The name says it all: you leave it on for 3 minutes and it gets a bit hard like clay, then you wash it off or wipe it off…

Eating out in L O N D O N

I recently went to London for a few days and stayed with my sister who has a job and money! Unlike me, the broke student. Therefore I was dreading going out to dinner and I was expecting to spend a fortune on food. To my surprise, we went to some incredibly scrumptious restaurants with unbelievable…

French Christmas Market in B O L O G N A

When I found out that there was a French Market on in Bologna, I was jumping with glee inside because I really have missed French food a lot lately! I was in my element, as you can imagine. I’ve been dreaming about baguettes and pate for the last few weeks now so I could not…

20 Things Everyone Entering Their Early 20s Should Know

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:
1. The novelty of the 21st birthday wears off quickly. Don’t get me wrong, it’s awesome– it’s your last big milestone birthday of youth, and legally being allowed in bars and such is great. But it’s never as cool as when you couldn’t do it before. 2. “Not knowing better”…

P R A G U E

I went to Prague in mid August and I completely forgot to write about this great trip. It was full of wonderful surprises, from the medieval architecture to the hand-made cookie crafting shops, from the delicious cocktails to the rich food. Where I stayed: In Arpacay Backpackers Hostel in Praha 2, which  meant that I…
