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…

I have a feeling that this post might be a long one, because I do love a good meal out and, since moving to Birmingham for uni, I’ve found a fair few restaurants which have fast become my favourites.

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!  Life has been pretty busy lately, but the good kind of busy, until I got ill and now feel like death when I get out of bed (yay). So, let me talk you through it from my recent Instagram pics… If you haven’t had a brookie before, you are missing out. I made 20 a few weeks ago for my housemates and they were gone by the following evening! My recipe is here and it’s SO easy, I couldn’t not share it. I LOVE this photo, and this jacket, and…
