This Week | 18

Other than the amazing meet-up in Covent Garden with a lovely bunch of bloggers, this week was one of those weeks where I didn't have much planned and I basically just did whatever I felt like doing each day, which was pretty perfect. 
- I have been trying to eat well each morning and I think this week I did quite well at it, as tempting as pancakes and french toast are, I've tried to stick to lots of fresh fruit this week, usually with yoghurt or wholegrain, or in the form of breakfast smoothies. On days where I wanted something more savoury;  poached eggs with avocado or smoked salmon were this weeks faves. 

- As I am back at uni very soon, I've been trying to spend as much time with my family in London as I can, especially with my youngest sister as it's crazy how fast she's growing up and I just love taking her out and spoiling her while I can. I took her to the cutest little treat boutique called 'Drink Me, Eat Me' which had lots of cupcakes, fresh pastries, customisable frozen yoghurt, and as many vintage and pastel decorations as you could possibly think of, from the teacups to the chairs we sat on. After that we went home and did some arts and crafts, which I used to love doing as a child so it's nice to get to share something like that with her, regardless of how basic (or some may say nonexistent) my artistic skills are. 

- Another thing I've been doing is making dinner for everybody and trying to learn new recipes from my mum. I'm a complete foodie who has far too much fun going through recipe books so I'm definitely in my element whenever I learn to make a new dish. 

- This week I felt like I have spent quite a bit of time waiting for packages to arrive, as I'd ordered a few things in the previous weeks where I've had no time to do any shopping, so this week was fun receiving them all - still waiting for an Asos one though! 

- As I had quite a bit of time to myself, I had a day where I just felt like wandering around and just having some general me time, listening to music and not thinking about what time it was or what I had to get done. I think spending time like that once in a while is really important. 

What did you get up to last week? Let me know in the comments below!

This Week | 4

This weekend is the last before I start uni, which is a slightly scary prospect because unlike last year, this year actually counts towards my degree.  Blogging and writing for you guys has been keeping me so productive over the summer and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.

This week - Buying my sister's presents for her birthday, she has been wanting them for a while and it makes me very happy to know that I will be the one to give it to her as a present // Receiving an email from one of my lovely blog followers, asking me for advice on how to improve their blog // Booking my tickets to visit home next weekend, will be lovely seeing everyone again as well as celebrating my sister's birthday // Cooking my own Lunch and Dinner from scratch most days this week,  I picked up so many new recipes and it is so much better for you than throwing something in the oven // Call me weird, but I find shopping for stationary quite fun, and I found the prettiest little notepads for my lectures.

This week on the blog - Brighton // Room Tour // Get involved - T.O.I | 6

Room Tour

Just thought I would share a few small details from my new room with you as promised. 

Rose scented candle.  
My dvd's, books, and the coconut that I won at Fresher's fair which I was way too proud of.

Summer is coming to an end... back to uni I go!

After three long months of being at home, it looks like summer is drawing to an end. This time last year I was definitely the most scared and anxious that I'd ever been before, because I was on my way to Uni and didn't know what to expect. During the 3 and a half hour trip in the car with my parents (squashed in amongst duvets, pillows and other things that I probably never used), I had somehow managed to convince myself into thinking that I would end up calling them to come and pick me up again the next day. Luckily for me, when I got there it stopped seeming so daunting, the place was lovely and I realised that everyone was in the same position as I was, and I quickly began to feel at home (So if you're worried about starting Uni this year, don't panic, you will be fine!). 

I have to say as much fun as this summer has been, it's coming to that point where I want to return to Uni. If like me, you're lucky enough to end up with a group of lovely flatmates, there will always be something to do. I don't think I have ever laughed as much in my life as I did in the past year whilst I was at uni (I put it down to things like waking up to my flatmates racing on hoovers down the corridor, or setting up forts outside your door so its literally impossible to leave your room!). I do miss home, but I know that its never long until I go back. Although for many students, spaghetti 3 times a week just isn't the same as mum's food!  

Speaking of spaghetti, how adorable is this photo?!
