I drink a lot of coffee. And I spend a lot of time in Costa. So, when the opportunity came up to join in on one of their masterclasses (and donate to their charity, the Costa Foundation, at the same time), I couldn’t resist. Now, I do have to warn you that, as it turns out, I am useless at making coffee. It’s really not my forte. But I had a great time and I supported a good cause, so I’m going to tell you all about it anyway…     Our masterclass took place at the Costa over…

This week, Tuesday night was date night. Ever since I was told I can no longer eat gluten (nope, still not over it), I’ve been craving burgers. I never even used to like them that much! I feel like usually people say ‘you always want what you can’t have’ about love and romance. Not for me.

She’s reacted badly to some foods in the past so being able to…

It seems absolutely crazy to me that I’ve been at university for two years. I still feel a bit like a newbie every time I go back to Birmingham, and I’m definitely still figuring it all out. But at the same time, I am so proud of myself for how hard I’ve worked and how well I’ve done. After taking a very impromptu year out before starting, I know a lot of people thought I wouldn’t do it, but I have and I still am! Before summer really kicks in, I get wrapped up in planning for my year abroad…

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that Edinburgh is my all-time favourite city. I love it more than anywhere else that I have ever visited and try to go back every year. It’s almost like another home to me now! On Thursday, I arrived back from a four day trip up to the Scottish capital with my friends. Despite some (read: a lot) of rain, we had the best time. It was just the relaxing break I needed after the stress of a major diet change and year abroad planning! I didn’t plan on blogging…
