A week ago today, probably around this time, I was huffing and puffing my way around the Manchester Half marathon.

Relationship chat isn’t usually my thing here, with a job that’s so online, I love to keep the most precious parts of my life offline. But whenever it comes up in conversation that my boyfriend lives in a different country to me I’m always met with really sympathetic eyes and expressions of ‘oh that must be so hard.’ Truth be told, it can be tricky but it also can be pretty wonderful and today we’re here to chat about that part…
I listen to a lot of great podcasts, most of which are about fitness, entrepreneurship or self care and empowerment. I listen to mostly female produced and focused podcasts and they really have become an important part of my daily routine. One thing that is often mentioned in these podcasts is how to navigate situationsContinue reading “Saying no: a note on personal boundaries”

A few weeks ago I left the hum of the big city in the search for some fresh air! My boyfriend and I visited the Zillertal in Austria. Having spent many summers and winters here I am already completely convinced it is one of Austrias most breathtaking corners, and after just 10 days he wasContinue reading “A rainy-day in the Zillertal”

Make-up and body care which helps animals, the environment, your skin, your make-up bag… and doesn’t break the bank!
…I mean a strict budget! Rent, uni, deadlines, work and whatever else: a lot is usually going on but let’s be realistic students (usually) have a lot of free time. How you decide to use it is the key question!
Everything I had the opportunity to do whilst living abroad for a year and didn’t.
As mainstream as Marie Kondo, as expensive as the White Company Pyjamas and Jo Malone home diffusers.
‘I’ve got a picture of me with a Trabant, and seen the Brandenburg gate we’ve done pretty well.’ Direct quote accredited to the Frapiano-sucking British tourist near to me sat in Starbucks, Kochstraße.

In April 2018 I got told I’d got an internship in Berlin, I had the Summer of my life and met the most amazing people. The same time this year I found myself on the job hunt again. After deciding that my priority this Summer was being back in the big city I knew IContinue reading “The job search…again!”
I’ve started to think over the last week or so why I haven’t been writing as much, or why I haven’t had the urge or passion to write, which I do so often. I’ve been so busy and it got to the point where juggling everything just wasn’t possible anymore. Something had to go -atContinue reading “Making Mental Health a Priority”
This month I’ve published one post…one! That’s so unlike me and I’ve really beaten myself up about it but it’s honestly just a true reflection of how busy I’ve been this month and a consequence of having both huge ups and downs. I’m currently sat in a cafe trying to pull myself together and getContinue reading “MAY”
The travel bug has hit hard recently and I can’t seem to keep myself sat in one place too long. Last weekend I went to Paris with one of my best friends and I’ve not laughed so much in a very, very long time. Without further a do…here’s what we got up to:

From a person that fell in love in the first half and had to leave to set up home somewhere new in the second! I’ll cut the first half of the story: We all know I fell in love with Berlin. Found purpose in my first ‘proper job’, made a good gang of friends andContinue reading “My top tips for the second half of your year abroad”
From someone who’s been there, done it and is about to start doing it again! The single biggest stress of my year abroad, and that of most of my friends too has been accommodation. Whether it’s finding it, keeping it or hating it and having to start over again we’ve all gotten wrapped up inContinue reading “The 5 stages of room searching”
Stop number one on our 5 day whistle stop tour of Poland was Warsaw. (The trip itself we can only describe as ‘an experience’ but more on that later!😂)
A few weeks ago I needed a pick me up, and there’s no better pick me up than a visitor, especially one you like a lot…

Okay so somehow we’re already 4 months into 2019?! As I’m writing this in Berlin right now sun is shining through the windows, the flowers on my windowsill are blooming and spring is well and truly here!
