Chorizo and Cannelinni Bean Stew

Hello Again!
I hope you are all well and having a good and productive week. Sorry this post has come with a bit of a delay, I've moved back home for Easter so have spent far too much of my time unpacking (the worst job ever). Also, I am trying my best to get some work done whilst it's still quiet in my town so I can get ahead of the game.
You may in my last post me mentioning how I am really beginning to enjoy cooking and want to start posting more of my cooking on my blog, as I am at least trying to post on here more often. I thought I would share with you all today my current favourite meal to make. It is super easy and does not contain ingredients that should break the bank. So if you like a bit of spice and feel like you need something to warm you up in this cold period we are currently going through then this is the recipe for you.

International Women's Day (IWD)

I had a different post that I was going to put up today, but it did not feel right to post that without addressing International Women's Day so I thought I would schedule that for another time- exciting! Anyway, International Women's Day is a day designed to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, according to the International Women's Day 2018 website. I feel as though it is important to celebrate how far women have come in today's society but not forget that discrimination still exists. There is still a glass elevator and still an expectation of what women should and should not be doing.

Before I go any further with this post I want to make it clear that I am supporting equality when I am talking about International Women's Day and am in no way saying it's a mans fault for inequality or that women are better than men. This post is literally just my tribute to women that inspire me, with a brief synopsis of what I believe still needs to be done to continue to give women more opportunity to achieve their goals.

Facts about me! 1.0

Hi Guys!

I feel like I've been away from my blog for so long now that the people reading this may know little about me. It's easy to live a life thinking that you really know someone when looking through a persons Instagram or Twitter, but I believe there is a lot more to a person then meets the eye. Whether that be an interesting story or fact about someone, or a secret talent that is often not shown beyond someone's comfort of their own home.

Since coming to University I have become less of a sharer for when it comes to talking about things that I enjoy doing or funny stories that have happened to me even to some of my closer friends. I think it's mostly because everyone here is so different and we all probably have little things about us that we generally just keep to ourselves. So you know... let's get sharing!!

It's 2018 yeh?

Hola, cómo estás?

Sorry, it's been a while; for all you know I could have started speaking Spanish, and for a month in 2017 I did attempt to learn it (read: I am ashamed to say it was only so I could sing along to Despecito and sound somewhat fluent). I have been pretty busy with life, to be honest. I applaud anyone who is able to have a blog and other life commitments because by heck I do not know where you find the time.

The point of this post is a little catch-up. Generally, January is seen to be about fresh starts and self-improvement... blah blah blah. In some ways I am a fan of January, it seems like a good time to set goals and to review the goals I may have previously made, and as a girl of business I love a life strategy... in fact my lifelong smart targets (not even lying) have become a bit of an obsession. However, I was not able to find the time in January to use it for the one thing it is somewhat useful for. In these past few weeks of 2018, I have had 5 exams -which is the most exams I've had to sit in one exam period since I sat my GCSEs, and still continued to apply for a placement role for my year out next year, as well as start semester 2. It has probably been the longest and most tiring start to a year in my life, and believe me, cabin fever is real. Despite the fact I still have other commitments I need to be facing up to, I feel like now is a good time to think about what I want to achieve this year.

Things I wish I had known... Before going to Uni!

I think it is easy to admit that everyone has different versions of how University panned out for them. People tell you stories, myths, legends if you will, but often hidden behind all of this spiel are the realities of "studentism". I thought I would share all of my first-year wisdom if that is what you call it with you all. I feel like I learn something every day with my experience of coming to University but whilst I've just completed my first year I thought now would be a good time share my little snippets of the first year.

Hello Everybody,

It has been somewhat of a looooong time since I shared with you fabulous people what I have been loving, so I thought as I am posting regularly again (or at least trying to) it was about time that I shared what I have been loving recently, which I feel indebted to share with you all, because that's what real bloggers do, amirite?!

My First Year

Hello Everybody,

If you didn't know already on the 23rd of May I completed my first year of University- that is assuming that I have actually done okay in all of my modules and don't have to retake any in the summer. So that means I have a lot of spare time on my hands, apart from the fact I will be working to make a bit of money to get me through second year. But I have also decided that this extra time is a good opportunity for me to work on my blog. I thought I would kick off my new load of posting however with a little review of what the first year of university was like for me, in the hope that it helps anyone who may be starting University as a fresher in the coming September- or just be interesting for anyone nosey out there that may be reading my blog.
