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…

  I was excited for weeks about Towcester Food Festival; put me in a place filled with all varieties of cuisines and I am one happy lady.  I was even more excited when I googled and found that there would be multiple stalls offering gluten-free goodness, and then there was the forecast for warmth and sunshine all weekend, the cherry on top of the cake (that I am no longer able to eat).   And I have to say, Towcester you did not disappoint.  I ate as much as I possibly could and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. Let me give…

It finally happened. Someone finally figured out the route of all my IBS issues. I can’t say that 21 years of pain and discomfort was worth it, but at least we’re getting somewhere, right? So, I can no longer eat gluten (or tapioca, or oats – yay). I am gluten intolerant, apparently. This means finding alternatives for the vast majority of my favourite foods, and it also meant a very grumpy, hangry Haze for the last few days of this week, before I had a chance to go food shopping. I’m really going to miss ‘normal’ pasta, cakes, cookies, cereal,…

If you like Chinese food, live in or around Milton Keynes, and haven’t yet tried Mii & U, you’re missing out. The small, not-too-special-looking, canteen-style restaurant offers some of the best Chinese food I’ve ever tasted, at some seriously cheap prices. My friend and I, along with our boyfriends, double dated there on Saturday night, so I thought I’d write up a little review for you all – enjoy! If spring rolls are on the menu, I’m going to order them. I think I actually got 6 or 7 in the side dish that I ordered, but I dug in…
