Every night I keep thinking to myself – ‘Tomorrow I will make time to blog!’. But even on lunch and before work I have been so busy organising the move, silly little things with the old house, bills, and the list goes on! But finally, we are almost sorted! Two of us moved last weekend to our new girls pad in South West london, and the final housemate is moving in this weekend. All very exciting! I love my new home. It’s amazing. Love living with friends, and it’s pretty close to everything you need. Only 5 minutes walk away┬áis a shopping centre with Topshop, Newlook, River Island, Primark, and so many restaurants! I am so happy that I decided to move and make the…

This weekend my sister came down – one of her regular visits which we always enjoy! This time just before she came down we were on the phone and she said she wanted to do something for my birthday, as an early present, rather than getting me a gift and not being sure what to get or whether I would definitely use it. Excited by the idea of doing something new, I told her it would be amazing to do something different. And it was amazing! Emma took me on the London Eye for my early birthday present! I had never been on the London Eye – was such a good choice! She bought tickets from 365tickets in the morning (fantastic prices – check it…

A little too drunk, and too impatient to wait in long queues I can say it wasn’t a particularly successful night out.

I had always been recommended Banners by others, as it was walking distance from home and I was told the food was amazing. So I decided we could take a stroll, get some morning fresh air and go cure our hangovers. Note : Do…

This week I took a trip to SNOG in Angel. It was amazing. Not only is it pretty healthy but there’s so many choices and it feels like you’re treating yourself! You walk into the shop. It’s nice and clean, and really warm…definitely nice when coming in from outside at the moment! You head towards the counter and suddenly get overwhelmed by the options – there’s so many. If you’ve never been before the person behind the counter kindly explains the menu and recommends what they thinks best – which I think is fab! You have to choose the flavour frozen yoghurt, the toppings and the sauce. It can be as healthy, or as much of a treat as you like. We seemed to go…
