12 Tips for surviving your Fresher’s week at University

On the topic of Fresher’s week, though, I mentioned in a previous post that I’m thinking of doing a series on tips and advice for university, and I figured this was the perfect starting point!

Sooooo… here are my 12 tips for surviving your Fresher’s week at university! I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!

September eco-friendly challenge: Zero waste week

I know it’s almost halfway through September, but I finally have for you my eco-friendly challenge for this month.

But also, because my eco-friendly challenge this month is part of a collab I’m doing with Moksha over at Happy Panda.

August Reflections, Highlights and Favourites

August has been a pretty crazy month in general. It was finally safe for me to come back to the UK, which meant saying goodbye and packing things up in South Africa. I had to go through 11 days of hotel quarantine which was not ideal but not too stressful thankfully (you can read about my quarantine experience here), and I did a holiday with my best friend from uni around some places in the UK. Would anyone be keen to read about our adventures? Hint… there was a Harry Potter theme!! So, with an eventful month just past, and what I think will be an eventful month going forward, here are my august reflections, highlights and favourites!
