Adios Erasmus

Wow. How on earth has it been 10 months since I started writing this blog and how on earth am I leaving Valencia in 2 days. (today by the time you’re reading this)?! The past few weeks I have lived the absolute life of a queeeeeen, using up any spare dolla I had, and taking in the…

24 hours in Toulouse

Okaaaay, I am fiiiiinally ready to talk to you guys about the most aggravating, annoying, adult-y problem I’ve had in my entire life, and I’m writing this in the hope that you readers can avoid it in the future and maybe not be as naive and trusting as I’ve been throughout this process. As you…

University Life

I know I know, long time no speak, but that is only because I genuinely have had nada to report. My post hen-do blues kicked in shortly after leaving home, and I don’t think they actually left until yesterday. The past 3 weeks have been some of the toughest of my year abroad. With some…

Gina’s Hen Do

I’m sat in the library trying to revise for these horrendous exams I’ve got coming up over the next 2 weeks and I just want to go back to the weekend and do it all over again. 10000000000% the best weekend of my life. I didn’t really think I needed a top up of home/my family just…

My Fave Fooderies

There’s not much going on in Valencia recently, I’ve got a ton of work/revision to be doing/avoiding, and the sun has decided to grace us with it’s presence so any free time I’ve got is spent sunbathing, and all the other time is spent working. Obviously eating as well, but that goes without saying. I did just…

Various Visitors

Hello again after a looooong couple of weeks away from my blog. I’ve been pretty busy enjoying life with some of my favourite people and now they’re all gone I’ve finally got time to sit down and chat to you guys about what I’ve been up to (mostly eating). I cannot believe how fast my…

Lunchin’ / Brunchin’

For those of you (morons) who aren’t familiar with the concept of brunch, your life is about to be changed. I’m obsessed with breakfast food, and so brunch is just the perfect excuse to have an even bigger breakfast, with an even bigger coffee, and basically label it as lunch. For me it normally looks…

The Dangers of Renting Abroad

Originally posted on Dita Jessica:
This post it going to be very matter of fact and detail the absolute nightmare my housemates and I have had whilst renting on our year abroad. I decided to finally compile a post detailing  some of the issues because I have heard from others studying abroad (especially in France)…

10 things I wish I’d known before my Year Abroad

You know the feeling of returning from a holiday full of sun, sea, and ice cold white wine on the beach? As much as you wish you could drop out of uni/quit your job and stay there forever – there’s always something reassuring and comforting about getting back to England/home and snuggling up in your…

Breakfast Galore

Greetings from Inglaterra! I’m home for a week and a half with absolutely nothing to do/no priorities and am very happy about that, so I thought this would be a good excuse to do some writing and seeing as I’m not getting up to much, I’m gonna write about my fave thing – FOOD! I…

Las Fallas

WHAT. A. WEEK. Last week/weekend has left me absolutely ruined. A week full of late nights, lots of alcohol, very little sleep, so. much. noise, aaand a hell of a lotta’ food has officially broken me and I cannot wait to head back to Yorkshire on Thursday and just relax and recuperate, but it was 100%…

Nutty quinoa bars

Today I fiiiiinally tweaked my recipe of THESE badboys to perfection: I’ve tried them a few times but each time I make them there’s something not quite right about them but today’s batch were heaaaavenly so I couldn’t not share them with you. I know the purpose of this blog isn’t really for recipes, but there isn’t…
