So I’ve hit that horrible point of summer. That nearly the end of August therefore nearly the end of summer phase which seems to result in me feeling blue. At the moment this feeling is heightened by anxiety as I’m stressing over sorting things to move away to France. So far, I’m doing okay handling […]

I couldn’t entitle this blog post in any other way than “wonder”. If you’re a Christian and into worship music, notably Hillsong, and you haven’t yet heard ‘Wonder’ Hillsong United’s new album, you need to get on it. My lovely friend Sophie introduced me to it on the way home from !Audacious Church in Manchester […]

After feeling cramped in the house doing university work pre-France, and my sister having to practically teach herself a GCSE Geography module over summer, we both decided to change up our study locations.

So after a packed morning at Kings, Sophie dropped a beautiful bombshell… We’re having roast dinner at mine. Oh yes. I hadn’t had a roast dinner in SO long so I was so excited. And it was so good, and lovely to meet Sophie’s parents too, who are equally as bubbly and hilarious as Sophie. […]

love :: the greatest

One past experience has chance my outlook on love forever. I can't really say I was in love but who knows. Love is powerful and overcomes you, and makes you blind. You don't see how someone is crippling you until after a relationship ends. "Your intelligence intimidates me" is a line from a guy that I will […]

The evening of day 2 saw us have dinner as a family of four at Sigi’s, where we had some truly outstanding food! My henna looked fabulous with my ring on and against my metallic green bag. And the skyline on the walk to the hotel room was just incredible. Day Two’s Snapchat story: DAY […]

DAY TWO Day 2 saw us venture into George Town, Penang’s capital city.   After a hectic crossing of the roads, and a picture-snapping short stop at a Chinese temple, we parted ways with my sister and grandparents. They returned to the hotel, and my parents and I took to the city. The Chinese temple […]

The evening of our arrival day saw us taking to the beach favourite hang-out, Beach Cafe. Greeted with smiles and fun, the owners made us feel at home at their shack and we chose our Chinese-style dishes. Honestly, it was the best sweet n sour chicken I have ever had, and so it should be […]
