A Boyfriend/Girlfriend Is A Luxury, Not A Necessity...



It was a spring afternoon mid-way through April, a very good friend of mine (Jessica) and I met up for brunch at the Holborn Grind. It was one of those “we seriously need to catch up, there’s so much to tell you” meet-ups and you end up talking so much your food ends up cold. Anyway, something she said that day stuck with me. It changed my entire perspective on love and relationships,

“I don’t miss people, is that weird? I lived a life before them, so I know that I can cope without them”

Hello? lightbulb moment or what?!

21 Lessons I Learned Before Turning 21


It’s that time of the year again, my birthday. As I grow older, it becomes less exciting and this year I somewhat dreaded it. It only fully dawned on me that I was getting old when my former sixth-form published pictures of their students getting their A-Level results. I thought “Oh my days, that was three years ago already!” Whilst, it should be exciting. It puts that extra layer of pressure that I need to achieve this goal within the year (Earlier in the year, I made a five-year goal). But I know it’ll fall into place eventually.

Nevertheless, this has by far been the best and most exciting. It was surrounded by some of the most important people in my life that bring me so much joy and love. So, thank you to all of you who greeted and spent time with me.
(Especially to my family, Francine, Eric, Lizzie, Bose, Jess and James and Pauline.)

I’ve learnt some incredibly valuable lessons growing up and I thought that I should share that with you!

I Don't Want to Settle For 'Average'


I don’t want to be average. I don’t want to settle for average. But I somewhat feel average.

I’ve always been drawn to bold and ambitious people because I wanted to be like them. On the other hand, I also succumb myself to fear more often than I would like.

Paris, France - The Dos and Donts (and How to Avoid Getting Scammed)


Paris, a city renowned for its beauty. Surely, it’s on everyone’s bucket list? It was certainly in mine. However, whilst its tourist attractions met my expectations, my overall experience was a disappointment. It’s my least favourite European holiday yet and I couldn’t wait to go home. 

Five weeks later, I’m still dealing with issues that we encountered back in Paris.

Here’s a list of dos and donts in Paris, don’t make the same mistakes that we did! (And also a mini-story time of how we got scammed in Paris and why AirFrance is the worst airline we’ve ever encountered)

"I Made It"


Whenever people say “University was the best three years of my life” I tend to bow my head in shame. Did I do something wrong? Why didn’t I feel the same way about my University experience? Because personally for me, it was the toughest three years of my life. And it wasn’t the best…

MY EXPERIENCE WITH RACISM


"Go back to your country!" a boy in my german class yelled
"Ni hao!” a white grown man yelled from across the street
“Ch*nk!” they screamed at my sister whilst speeding in their car

Fifteen years ago, my parents sacrificed what we once called ‘home’ to move to a country that they knew would give us a better life. Did they want to? Probably not. Did they think it was necessary? Absolutely.

Mykonos, Greece: Travel Guide

Four weeks ago, Eric and I were sunbathing in Ornos Beach, Mykonos. It was pure bliss.
Mykonos quickly became my favourite European country I've visited to date. To me, it fulfilled my expectations and more. Everything went pleasantly well throughout the six days we were there. 
Although, it was different from our other holidays; this was more of a beach holiday rather than a city break. Prior to our holiday, we were so busy we didn't have an itinerary and I didn't find any travel guides for Mykonos online.  So I thought, why not make my own travel guide?
In this blog post, I'm going to give you a mini travel guide on Mykonos; this includes activities to prices.

Mind Your Own Business!


"Get your sh*t together" ah, that overused phrase we repeatedly remind ourselves in times of despair. It got me thinking, what does it actually mean? Does anyone actually have their life together? I beg to differ.

It's Not You, It's Me


No matter how hard I try to fall in love with it, this bomber jacket is not 'me'. This applies to trainers and the ripped clothing trend. Despite knowing this, I persisted on making it work. So, amongst the ongoing bomber jacket trend, I ended up with this.

Dissertation 101


It's that time of the year where dissertation deadlines are looming. Time has flown and it's astonishing how I once doubted my ability to complete this. Let me tell you, it has been a crazy few months investing so much time and effort into this project. Hello, 10,000 words? I can't even describe myself in ten words sometimes!

Anyway, I wanted to share my ideas and advice for anyone who is about to start their dissertation in their upcoming year. There are some things I wish I did and stuff that I found really helpful. 
ALSO: don't mind my bored expression, it really wasn't that boring (hah!)

Pho House

I'm back with another restaurant review, last year my boyfriend and I found ourselves relying on my good friends - Jess and James - blog to decide where to eat. Gone are the days where we'd spend hours debating -"I don't know, it's up to you" or "I don't mind". We're always up for trying new food. This time we were interested in trying out a Vietnamese restaurant.

Over-Worn and Over-the-Knee

A staple piece that seemed to be in everyone's wardrobe during the winter season were over-the-knee boots. In particular, a pair of grey Stuart Weitzman's. Now, I may be a little late to the trend. Neither am I able to afford such beautiful shoes at the moment, but I knew I had to have something like them. 
They looked so chic styled with short dresses and skirts AND they were warm; perfect for the colder months.

The Boy Who Broke My Heart for the First Time

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Recently, I stumbled across various diary entries about this boy I was infatuated with almost four years ago. I refer to him as a 'boy' given the immaturity of our situation and 'infatuation' because I seem to have a better understanding of what love is now. At least, I'd like to think so.
Reading my seventeen-year-old thoughts made me re-live my memories with him, only this time I was watching from the outside.

Three Things I Learned in Twenty-Sixteen

366 days ago I was reflecting on how the previous year went. Whilst twenty-fifteen was a tough year, twenty-sixteen was all about dealing with who I was and what I wanted out of life. 
I was lucky enough to spend the rest of the year in paradise, the Philippines. I was sat on a beach in Bohol with no phone and no wifi. Just me and my thoughts, how has this year been for me?
You could say I lost my way with blogging during the year, I fell out of love with it. My blog didn't reflect my personality, so in my eyes it wasn't good enough. 
Here's to giving it another go!
