Birthday Lunch: The Oxo Tower

Recently, my family visited me at University on my birthday weekend to have some lunch and a little day out sightseeing. I say recently, my birthday was actually at the beginning of May – I was just drowning in revision and assignments to blog at the time, but alas better late than never. Although I…

What I’ve Been Up To

As most Uni students can agree, the past couple of months have been filled with stress and cramming in revision for exams – and like most others – I did not have enough time to fit everything in. Thankfully, now my exams are finally finished and I am home for summer; I am SO excited…

Off the Waffle

I love coming home from Uni and finding new places to eat, especially if it involves desserts. My friend Amber asked if I wanted to visit ‘Off The Waffle’ with her, basically a diner that makes sweet and savoury waffles and crepes; obviously I said yes. Located in the Friargate area of Preston town centre,…

A Trip To: The Shard

As tourist destinations go, The Shard is just one of  many landmarks people like to visit on their trips to London. When my parents came to visit me at University a few weeks ago, my mum planned a trip for us three to go to The Shard; I’m still unsure as to why she wanted…

Everybody needs a break from work every now and then, and after being stuck inside working on assignments all weekend, spending a few hours walking around and…

On Thursday night Liberty London were holding a beauty event to raise money for LGFB (Look Good Feel Better), a charity who “help women and teenagers combat the visible side effects of their cancer treatment”. My friend Charlie and I decided to go along to get some early Christmas presents, and to help raise some…

Shopping in London & Meeting Niall Horan

So, if you hadn’t already guessed by the title, yesterday was a verrrrry exciting day for me. My friend Charlie and I decided to head to Oxford Street for some retail therapy, and we were NOT prepared for the events that were about to unfold. Shopping wise, it was a successful trip. I cannot get…

I Moved to London

So as the title states – I have moved to London. I have finished my A levels and decided to go to University in London, where I study Journalism and Spanish. I’m excited to document my life as a Northerner in London, and although I’ve not been here long already I’ve noticed some subtle differences…
