Graduating, Again

Despite spending 3 years there, I had no idea that Oxford University gives you an honorary Masters degree about four years after you’ve graduated. Yep. So I now (technically) have two Masters degrees, but no BA, because the MA (Oxon) replaces whatever Bachelor’s degree you achieved at Oxford. Very strange, Continue Reading

New from Sephora

As always, when I visit the US, I can’t seem to avoid Sephora! I was relatively restrained this time around – mainly because I spent all my money at the outlets and on books, but still. Here’s a quick run-through of everything I picked up and what my thoughts are Continue Reading

[THIS IS] Athens

I’ve wanted to go to mainland Greece ever since I became interested in Classics and ancient history. To actually visit the places talked about in the plays of Sophocles and Euripides, and walk around the same(ish) city that Socrates and Plato made their home… So when my mum and brother Continue Reading

[THIS IS] Edinburgh 2.0

Around 2 years ago, I visited Edinburgh, did all of the tourist stuff, wrote a blog post etc. And this Easter weekend, I did it all again – and if anything I love Edinburgh even more! This time, we stayed slightly outside of the city centre, in the Stockbridge area. Continue Reading

Favourites from Fall

I thought I’d put together a bit of an overview of some of my favourite things of the last few months, including some of the books I’ve managed to read in the depths of dissertation writing, but mostly the things I’ve been doing and places which I’ve been visiting. I’m Continue Reading

I haven’t done one of these in a while, mainly because I was, y’know, writing a dissertation. But I’m very much back into the reading swing of things, and although I didn’t get through too many books in October, I’m enjoying having the time to read for fun again! Check Continue Reading

U.S. Make-Up Buys

I’m not going to tell you how many times and how many different locations of Sephora/Ulta I went into throughout my two weeks in the US, but quite frankly it was a few too many! However, in comparison to previous years, I was very restrained and limited my purchases significantly. Continue Reading

Holiday Catch Up – Orlando & Austin

Earlier this month, I finally managed to get back to Florida, 15 years after my last visit. And of course I spent most of my time at the parks! We also headed out to Texas for a second week to spend time with family, which was really chilled compared to Continue Reading

Hay Literature Festival 2018

At the end of May, I spent a Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday at Hay Festival in Hay-on-Wye. Despite my love for books, I’d not been before, and it was quite an experience! It’s huuuuge compared to other Literature Festivals, and much busier. There were possibly too many people… But Continue Reading
