Sunday Round Up #5


Watching: Grey’s anatomy. After majorly enjoying both Scandle and How To Get Away With Murder, I thought I’d go old school Shonda Rhimes and attempt to tackle the mammoth that is Grey’s. It’s a slow series to get into compared to her most recent ones, but now I’ve gotten into it I’m starting to really like the characters, especially Doctor Mcdreamy – offt.

Reading: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, J.K Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne – it’s so nice to be back in Hogwarts again and now all I want to do is go see the play!

Blogging: There have been some great blog posts over the past couple of weeks, but I really enjoyed reading these in particular; Why your expectations are making you miserable – Bianca Bass, Little Acts of Self Love – Life Outside London, Ode to a Saturday – One Pleasant Day and finally, 6 ways to be your own #GirlBoss – Love From Berlin.

Tahini Swirled Brownies (Dairy-Free)


Do you ever get those moments where you just don’t know what to do with yourself? You have a long list of things you could be doing, but your brain just says ‘nope not right now’. Well as I write this, that’s exactly what’s happening. I find being away at university kills my creativity; my brain isn’t only tired from studying, working and volunteering but it’s also emotionally tired from all the stresses and worries that university life presents. As a result,  creative hobbies that I enjoy become chores, as I’d rather curl up on my bed watching the latest episode of a tv show, reading a book or listening to a podcast – anything that takes my mind away from reality so I don’t have to actually think.

Wonderful Wednesday #4


Shortly after submitting last week’s Wonderful Wednesday post, I sliced the top part of my thumb off with a very very sharp knife. Luckily my housemate came to my rescue, but major bleeding ensued and the worst pain of my life was experienced after she stuck my thumb under a cold tap – my goodness I have never felt pain like it. Due to the fact my thumb would not stop bleeding, I was an hour late for work, so therefore not a very good start to the week. To top it all off, my concerns last week of catching the dreaded freshers flu have been confirmed as I sit here remembering all the times that I could breathe through my nose. But enough with the pity parade, lets get started with all the wonderful moments that have happened over the past seven days!

Pistachio Granola with Homemade Pistachio Butter (Vegan)


Breakfast is a somewhat difficult meal for me. I hear so much about the endless breakfast options, porridge, bircher muesli, poached eggs, tofu scambles, baked oatmeal – the list is endless. The trouble is, the most exciting of these options are time-consuming and, well, the ones that aren’t dont particularly fill me up. I love bircher muesli but after about 2 hours I am on the hunt for something else to eat.

Wonderful Wednesday #3


This past week of university has been a bit long and taxing and has possibly been the start of the dreaded freshers flu (I am praying to the almighty that I haven’t got it!). Nevertheless, there has been a few highlights this week and after sitting down to write this post I forgot how much there was to actually show gratitude for. It’s funny how your brain works, always looking ahead to the next thing, but I honestly think this reflection buisness is good for the soul.
