Now that December is over I am counting down the days until the beginning of spring. The past few days have been filled with sunshine but it is still ice cold outside – don’t let the lack of winter coat fool you, I nearly turned into an iceberg when taking these pictures. The only body part that stayed warm were my ears, I know why I’m a hat lady. Now that my exams are over I have more time for blogging, seeing friends and enjoying life in the city. All of these things are long overdue, I’ve wanted to go… View Post

If January and February are your favourite months of the year, you won’t need this post. But I’m sure isn’t just me who always hopes for March to roll around as quickly as possible. As much as I love December, January and February always feel a bit empty to me and the weather is definitely a contributing factor. This year January was filled with exams and I cannot tell you how happy I am that they are finally over. Now it’s time to go back to blogging and to all the other things that have come to a halt over… View Post

The thought of being a vegan student can seem daunting at first. How will I afford it? What will I do at social gatherings? Will I manage to maintain a balanced diet? These are thoughts that many students might have and let me tell you one thing directly – being a vegan student is actually pretty easy, especially if you follow certain tips. In honour of veganuary I am going to address some issues and share my tips for being a vegan student. Most of my tips are very simple, in fact so simple that it feels strange to list… View Post

Oh 2016, I have ambiguous feelings towards you. You dragged on for what felt like forever and then you suddenly sped up and passed by faster than I could blink. Or say 2017. You brought me joy, you brought me sadness and you certainly gave me some valuable lessons. Whilst 2015 was the year of amazing experiences, 2016 was the year of important life lessons. I learned that starting uni can be difficult, that balancing blogging and uni is a huge challenge and that travelling does not automatically bring happiness. But there were many amazing moments as well, let’s not… View Post

Hello and happy fourth Sunday of Advent! I am very excited that Christmas is around the corner although I secretly wish December would last two months instead of one. Who else would be up for renaming November Pre-December and making huge advent calendars that last for 54 days instead of 24? My December has certainly had a lot of ups and downs. I went to the a lot of different Christmas markets, had the obligatory cup of mulled wine (or maybe a bit more than that) and did quite a lot of Christmas shopping. I also had a great Christmas… View Post

One of my favourite things to do is wandering around and exploring new places. Or new corners of places I have seen a hundred times. And is there a better time for exploration than Christmas season? I don’t think so. I had already seen London in December a few years ago and even back then I was impressed how christmassy the city was – I remember going to Winter Wonderland and doing Christmas shopping at Oxford Circus (or more accurate: trying to beat the crows at Oxford Circus). This year marks my first proper Christmas season in London and I… View Post

Today marks the official beginning of Christmas season which is undoubtedly the best time of the year. If you were following my blog at this time last year you might remember that I started my Christmas Countdown with a post about my favourite things to do during Christmas season. Writing it definitely got me into the Christmas spirit and in my mind I was already eating roasted almonds at my local Christmas market. There is just so many great things to do before Christmas Eve – from iceskating, drinking mulled wine, doing Christmas shopping and building a snowman to decorating… View Post

I originally planned on uploading this post a week later but then I remember something, something that got me very excited: next Sunday marks the beginning of the Christmas season. And how could I possibly do anything else than a Christmas post then? If you know my Christmas obsession you know that I don’t have a choice – I am definitely jumping on the bandwagon! And although I am not doing Blogmas this year, I will upload a Christmas post every Sunday until Christmas Eve. So keep your eyes peeled for plenty of Christmas content. I am very excited to… View Post

I’m not sure how to begin this post and frankly, this is my fourth attempt at writing it. I originally wanted to bring my thoughts to ‘paper’ on Wednesday, I even went to Starbucks to motivate myself with a cup of chai tea (and to use their wifi which ironically did not even work that day) and ended up staring at my blank computer screen for 3 hours. So four days forward, I am giving it another try. The reason why this post is hard to write is that it evolves around a sensitive topic – but mostly because it… View Post

For me Saturdays mean exploration. So no matter how my busy my week is, I try to fill them with wandering and new discoveries. On Saturdays I turn into a tourist. And an area I had been wanting to explore for a while was Shoreditch. Despite hearing a lot about it I had never gone there myself and I decided that it was about time to change that. So one Saturday morning we took the tube and headed north. We got off at Old Street and walked the rest of the way and whilst we were getting closer to the… View Post
