If you’re moving anywhere new, not just to London, one thing you must consider is housemates. When I first went to move down to London, I looked for people who seemed nice and easy to get on with – but price and location came pretty high on my list, as well as liking the house. Looking for a new place can get so tiring, a little depressing with the number of places you go to see, and very stressful. But make the most of it! Make sure you like the location, the room and the house but most importantly the people you live with. If your moving to somewhere new there’s nothing like going home to a friendly house after a long day at work…

Last night I had my first Emirates experience. It was pretty awesome. couldn’t believe when I looked back at my photos I missed the ‘E’ off – obviously too much in a rush! After finishing work, and quickly grabbing some food (obv high on my list after a long day at work!), me and Alex met his friend and girlfriend. Starting our short walk to Emirates (so lucky to be so close – love London life), we had a nice little catch up and stopped at a pub for a cheeky pre-match bevvy. I really did need that glass of rosé after stressing myself out this week! Emirates is huge! Walking up to it, you can only imagine the atmosphere on a big game night!…

This morning I dragged myself out of bed at 6.40am to go for a run. I say dragged, but it wasn’t too hard to get up once I’d woken up properly, and I wanted to run in the morning to keep my evening free and to give me a good start to my day (The first part of my morning run-tivation) Time for my first tempo run of the week (part of my training for half marathon) I left the house at 6.50 and slowly jogged to my nearest park. With distance set I started my run – But had to take a quick pause at one point to take some photos to share with everyone. The weather was gorgeous this morning which made my…

I booked it! I’m doing a half marathon. It’s a great challenge for me and I really want to push myself hard to raise money for a cause close to the heart. Haemophilia affects many people in the UK, including someone very close to me. For those of you who aren’t sure what haemophilia is: Haemophilia is an inherited condition that affects the blood’s ability to clot. The symptoms of haemophilia can be mild to severe depending on the level of clotting factors you have, but most cases are classified as severe. People with Haemophilia will bleed longer, bumps and bruises will be more severe and potentially last longer, and they can bleed internally more easily. You won’t be able to tell someone who has…

The boat race … IS a big deal so I found out this weekend. On Sunday it was the big Oxford vs Cambridge boat race on the Thames. Going from Putney Bridge, just over 4 miles away from city centre, the rowers pull their oars at such speed to win. They must have so much stamina! Having not long come back from my run – training for the half marathon, and with it spitting with rain, I can say I wasn’t too keen on heading back out. But when my housemate, Meg, invited me to go down to the boat race to see what all the fuss was with her and her boyfriend and a group of friends I couldn’t say no – need to…
