Hello Tuesday! I should be writing my assignment right now but can you really call yourself a student if you're not doing everything else apart from what you should be doing?! On top of my current lack of motivation to do any-th-ing - I am ill. I guess it had to happen since it is now Winter here. As much as I love drinking hot chocolates and snuggling in a blanket - this over abundance of colds and flu going around I do not love.

Life lately has been studying, assignments, work and trying to juggle everything else. There are days when I am great at it and then other days where I am so hopeless. Today is one of those days. If you are a major multitasker please leave me some tips - right now I feel like I could use some extra help!

As the weather has gotten colder I find myself wearing more and more fluffy stuff. I completely adore any jumper, top, coat, any garment that feels like it is the missing element of Monsters Inc. The jumper above has been my go to for the last few weeks - so soft and warm!

Today I finished listening to Artemis by Andy Weir. It was the first audiobook I have listened to and I have to say I really enjoyed it. This year has challenged my book purist self and I have not only expanded to read on a kindle but have also ventured into the realm of audiobooks. Maybe all the extensive advertising has got to me (also this is not an ad). If you read The Martian or are into humorous sci-fi and Rosario Dawson then I feel like you'll like this one. Rosario Dawson really made it for me - she was so good and I was completely in awe of her having to deal with different accents and making it believable. If you have any suggestions for audiobooks - send them my way!

Reading through this post I realise this has ended up as a little catch up :) Hopefully it won't take me too long to post the next catch up! How's life with you lately?

Barcelona Part 1.

Welcome to part one of my recent Barcelona trip :) At the beginning of October I took Mum to Barcelona as a late birthday present! We took an atrocious amount of photos so will be breaking this 3 day trip into 3 posts. Coming from London - I couldn't believe how warm it is in Barcelona at this time of year. It was such a blessing to be able to wear some summer clothes.

Even though we were only there for 3 days, we had managed to walk over 55km! Barcelona is one of the easiest cities to walk around in with everything we wanted to do within 30 minutes walking distance. It was a great excuse to get some exercise in without feeling like we were actively doing so. With the weather being so beautiful it seemed almost a crime to jump on the underground when we could walk for just a little bit longer. I easily fell in love with Barcelona. 

I enjoyed probably the best fish dish I have ever consumed in my life! Thinking about it - all the best fish dishes I have eaten has been whilst I have been in Spain. Unfortunately I didn't take a good quality photo but it was at a lovely restaurant called Sucursal Aceitera - if you are in Barcelona I highly recommend seeking this place out. We were incredibly lucky or maybe Barcelona is that plentiful but everywhere we went was filled with cute cafes and delicious food! 

It feel so odd to write about this trip when I am sitting in my warmest pjs whilst trying to type a little faster to warm my fingers up (we don't have any heating at the moment as the house is being redecorated). 

Have you been to Barcelona? If you have, where was your favourite place to visit whilst there?


Hello. Major long time no see. I won't go into lack of blogging blah blah blah....however, I am back.
I recently met up with Szeyuin  - we had been meaning to meet ALL year it feels like and the stars finally aligned and it happened at the start of September.

We met in Peggy Porsches which is this beautifully pink, picturesque café in the Fitzrovia area. I don't think I have ever been to a place more instagrammable in my life or have seen so many people take so many photos in one place in such a short space of time. If you are after pretty photos, I highly recommend heading here. The cake is pretty good too.

I was a tiny bit apprehensive meeting Szeyuin as I can be socially awkward and weird when I meet new people as well as worrying about if we would get along. That was silly, Szeyuin is one of the loveliest people I have ever met and had a such a fun day laughing and talking about how much we love food.

She was also really inspiring, not only with her creative skills but also with her life! Moving across the World and having the courage to follow her dreams is just so cool.

One of the things that I have been actively trying to do this year is to appreciate the people around me a lot more and to recognise what makes them wonderful. Maybe this is something that comes with shrugging off insecurities but there's something so freeing in openly celebrating what others do, not only to others but to their faces. If you think someone is great, don't hold back - say it to their face, you might just make their day :)

All the above photos were taken by Szeyuin. If you like what she does, give her a shout on Instagram - she's a social media content creator! Go and follow Szeyuin on Instagram @szeyuin

I would love to hear who inspires you - leave me a comment down below!
