Any chance to use mini eggs and loads of chocolate – I’m there! Here is my first Easter bake of the year.
To kickstart April, here are a few things I’ve particularly enjoyed throughout March.
So, after a week of radio silence on my blog (and lacking motivation whilst simultaneously having university work to do), I spent my very sunny Saturday in the birth place of William Shakespeare himself: Stratford-upon-Avon.
There are a lot of common misconceptions about what it’s like to be a drama student. I’ve asked some of my fellow first year drama students a few questions, to see if they can sum up their own experiences and challenge some of the stereotypes we face in performing arts.
Think you know puppet shows? Think again. If what you know about puppetry is all Punch and Judy or The Muppets, then you clearly haven’t met Fred.
It had the audience in fits of giggles one minute, with Fred’s inappropriate behaviour at a children’s party, and reduced to tears the next, as Fred hit rock bottom. Truly 5-star.
There are some parts of a university experience that are pretty much inevitable, and one of those is having to find and rent a house for second and third year. After spending a first year in halls of residence, meeting new people and forming friendships (some that may last, some that may not), there soon comes a time to start house hunting.
Everyone needs a basic vanilla cupcake recipe, right? This is one I like to use to get dainty, level cupcakes which I can then decorate with glacé and fondant icing, for whatever occasion!
It’s always nice when friends from back home take the time out of their own busy schedules (whether that be due to full time work, higher education or travelling the world) to come and visit you in your new home at university. We spent the day doing some of my favourite things to do on a quiet weekend in Worcester; here, I am going to give you some top tips of what to do both in Worcester and generally, when friends visit you.
With my second half of first year well on its way, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect on my first semester of university.
One of my new year’s “resolutions” this year was to actually bite the bullet and start booking things that I want to do in 2017. Days out, weekends away, shows, etc. I have an awful habit of listing all these wonderful places I want to go and things I want to do and never doing any of it.
So, for my first adventure of the year, I booked a weekend away in Chester whilst I had some free time from uni.
