To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. I adore this book, I’m on page 161 so I’m nearing the end and so far the writing has completely captivated my imagination. I’ve copied down a couple of quotations because it was just such beautiful writing. Woolf is definitely one of my absolute favourite authors and I have already decided that I want to read The Waves on holiday.

Listening to…

I’m struggling with this one as I’m currently writing this post from the spare laptop so I don’t have my itunes. However I was enjoying a bit of LADYHAWKE earlier, don’t know where it came from really!


Today has been a day for packing up heaps of my stuff to move so naturally I needed a sitcom to watch, I’ve watched all of the available episodes of 2 Broke Girls so I’m now watching Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23. It’s pretty funny, not quite as good as 2 Broke Girls though…


Being wrapped up in my duvet when it’s raining outside, drinking warm chocolatey mochas in town, the excitement of moving and decorating bedrooms, nude lipstick, the fact that I’m seeing Tom tomorrow, Green & Blacks white chocolate.


Here is some of the exciting news I’ve been promising you: in just twelve days I’m going to be headed to Paris! A couple of weeks ago my mum texted me and asked if I fancied going to Paris for five nights and of course I was ecstatic. The four of us are so looking forward to the trip as it’s been years since we last visited the city. If you have any recommend for places to visit, places to eat, things to see etc I’ve love your suggestions!

What are your currently-s?
Have you got any exciting news to share?

I’m sorry I’ve been so absent from the blogworld, my laptop had to be sent in for repairs so I don’t have complete access to the internet, I am still reading your blogs as much as I can!



So what do you think of my new header?

Isn’t it beautiful? A couple of days ago this lovely lady tweeted about designing blog headers and I immediately jumped at the chance.

I’ve been reading Jenny’s blog for a long time and I love both her stunning photography and her brilliant designs so I knew I’d enjoy working with her. I couldn’t be happier, she worked quickly and professionally and gave me complete artistic control (although I mostly left it to her as she knows better than me!). She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I absolute love finished product!.

Plus one of the best things is that Jenny is really affordable to work with which is fantastic for poor students like me.

So thank you ever so much Jenny! I’d recommend her 100% and when if I make the move to being self-hosted I am definitely going to be calling on her services again.

With the end of the academic year in site I’ve started making lots of plans for the summer.

My summer is almost four months long.

Four months…

That is an incredibly long time to have off and usually I’d be a little worried about getting bored. But after the incredibly challenging year that I have had I can’t say I’m worried at all. All I can think about is how wonderful it will be to be able relax completely, not have to stress about work, essays and exams. To be able to take the time to get better.

It just sounds like bliss to me.

I won’t be idle though. Like I said I’ve been making lots of plans.

I’m sure I will be sharing them with soon 🙂

Today has been another day of revision and sitting at my desk working all day has started to take it’s toll on me. Lunch was sweet because I really needed a bit of a lift, nothing beats a bagel with nutella and sliced banana!

I think tonight I will do my physio and curl up in bed with my new book.

I saw it recommended on a blog (can’t remember which one!) and when I checked it out on Amazon I found that I could buy it second hand (but like new) for just £3 so I couldn’t resist. After reading Wide Sargasso Sea and whilst in the middle of Vanity Fair it’s nice to have something a little more contemporary.

What do you think of the new header? Hasn’t Jenny done a fabulous job!
Any fantastic plans for the summer?
