Note Nutty

If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of, it’s creative journals. Nothing get the creative juices flowing better than a unique notebook with exciting pages. Perhaps that’s just the organisation freak within me, but hopefully you’ll know what I mean! Here’s some great ones I’ve found on the net recently… A Five Year Memory…

Slices

Blogging is a wonderful thing. Seeing the way that people put everything into their own little slice of the internet is a constant source of inspiration. What better way to inspire you today, than share four of my favourite reads with you… Cider with Rosie I discovered Rosie’s blog a while ago, and have since…

Siblings and Secondary School

Source It’s official. I’m old. Okay, I know that 22 is hardly the time to start hitting the comfy armchairs for mid-conversation naps and an over acceptable interest in birds but something has happened of late that has made me feel old. My little brother is heading to secondary school. A twelve and fifteen year age…

Flat Hunting Hell

Nokia Lumia 925 Review

A fortnight ago I was given the opportunity to try out the Nokia Lumia 925*. At the time I was looking to renew my contract so said yes as I thought it might be worth seeing if I’d want to get it. It turns out I ended up going for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini…

Managing Workload at University

Starting a new course at university can feel like you’re a small fish in a huge pond, and the workload piling on doesn’t make this any easier. It doesn’t have to be as daunting as it seems though, and I found that keeping organised and managing workload at university removed unnecessary stress and worry from…

Social Life at University
