My Youtube Channel

The time has come - I can officially say that I have branched out onto Youtube! I have so far only uploaded one video, but have a lot more lined up - these will include vlogs as well as sit-down videos. So if you have any interest in me as a person and what I have to say then head over and subscribe :)

You can also take a look at my first video below, where I document bits of my recent trip to the U.S.


And I have of course not forgotten about this blog, so stay tune for more posts soon!

Hope to see you over on my channel :)

My Month In Pictures - April & May '16

As my uni assessments are finally behind me - and as we're now in the depth of summer - it's long overdue for me to post about how my Spring was. Here's what it looked like!


The first day of sun.

A derelict road sign in Hampstead.

I went to see The Last Shadow Puppets at Hackney Empire (the gig was amazing and the venue was beautiful). 

Just a dog in a coffee shop.

A taxi ride in London.

My mum recently moved to Highgate, so we explored the area!

Victoria sponge cake at my grandmother's house

 A very tasty meal at Pizza Express.

I finally visited the enchanting Highgate Cemetery for the first time. 

 A pretty pastel house in Highgate.

Goodbye London.

Hello Nottingham.

I travelled to Birmingham to see Troye Sivan live.


 Springtime on Campus.

 I received a beautiful wedding invitation from my best friend and her fiance. 

I'm lucky enough to live near Nottingham Castle - the surrounding area is pretty in the Spring.

There were a few end of year events this month which I dressed up for!

A pretty shop window in Nottingham.

I hope everyone had a great Spring!

My Month In Pictures - February & March '16

Apologies for the lateness of this post, and for the lack of recent actively in general. As some of you may know, the beginning of this year was a difficult period for me, Things have been a lot better since then, but as I had to take a lot of time out, the aftermath meant filling my time by attempting to catch up on the elements of my life that I had gotten behind in (for example my final term at uni!).

With that said, here's what February and March of this year looked like for me! 


At the beginning of February I was lucky enough to go and see Les Mis in the West End for a second time!

Nottingham's cityscape at twilight.

Keeping warm in Birmingham station whilst I wait for a gig. 

I enjoyed some really nice Latin food at Las Igaunas in Nottingham!

My anxiety continued to be horrendous this month, hence writing little reminders on myself that I'm okay. 

I started engaging in mandala colouring, which to my surprise often really helped me during extreme anxious episodes. 


Sleeping With Sirens returned to Nottingham's Rock City once again!

Insomnia really hit this month, hence witnessing a lot more sunrises than I would have liked. 

Sunset by the canal.

And ack to London for the Easter holidays, and for a couple of gigs including James Bay!

My mum recently moved, and wasn't fully furnished by the time I arrived. But that was okay because it meant I could have this cool Tumblr-esque set up. 

And finally, Easter Sunday involved a lot of food, and a lot of chocolate.
