Is it hypocritical that one of my favourite parts of living in London is that it looks like I don’t live in London?
I moved down to London at the end of September to start at university and I had never been more excited – or more nervous – for anything in my life. London has always been my favourite city; the city that, despite cheating on it with Paris, New York, Ottawa and more, I came back to every time with a loving embrace. Continue reading
I like to think of Bonfire Night as a marmite holiday; lots of people love it, will even class it as their favourite British holiday, and lots of people hate it, they don’t see the enjoyment of the brief yet loud display of lights in the night air or really understand what we’re celebrating, to begin with. Although perhaps even those people who do love it don’t even know why either. Personally, I classify myself as a lover of Bonfire Night, although Christmas wins my top spot hands down.
Ever since I was very young, I and my family would attend the Bonfire Night hosted at my school. A family friend would host a party beforehand and so I’d run around with my friends in their garden with sparklers – which were expressly forbidden on the school ground – until it was time to walk down in the dark to the school field.

There’s an unspoken truth about the end of A-Levels: as soon as you and your friends have finished all your exams you pack a bag, board a plane, and head off somewhere exciting. For many that’s to Magaluf or Ibiza – but that’s never really been my kind of thing. So my friend and I instead decided to grab a different ticket and to explore La Ville-Lumière!
I am breaking my two month hiatus with this short little snapshot of my life video!
Back in April, when the weather was unnaturally beautiful for English Spring-time, my family and I decided to take the dogs to a place called Grinshill for a walk all around the nearby woods. Continue reading
– January 2nd 2017 –
On every turn of the year I find myself amazed at how quickly time goes by. It feels as if my Mum and I were putting up our Christmas tree only yesterday – when in fact we were just slobbing out in front of the TV, having a final full day of relaxation before having to return to the humdrum routine of college and work.
1st – 4th December 🎄
So I decided, very spontaneously, that this year I wanted to do Vlogmas!
For those who haven’t heard of Vlogmas it’s just uploading vlogs everyday in December or up to the 25th of the month; however I’ll only be uploading weekly vlogs every Monday because my life is far from interesting enough to warrant daily vlogs!
Just a simple little video today capturing my lazy and Autumnal Sunday dog walk. For me Autumn in the best time of the year to go wandering, with or without dogs, because even though there is a chill running through the air, the sun shines and heats you up. It’s also the perfect weather to go sit in a park drinking mochas and reading, so that’s definitely a bonus!
As I was trawling through my Photos on a little journey to the past I stumbled across a bunch of footage from my trip to Bruges last year which I hadn’t done anything with! I went with my Mum and my brother following my GCSE exams, which seemed to go on for forever, so this was a really lovely holiday.
I love making these type of videos because they really act like a little souvenir of that time and that place and so this was made! I hope you enjoy it and don’t mind it’s un-bookish-ness (which is definitely not a word!).
