Given I’d been in winter hibernation for some months, I was eager to get some Vitamin C… …Okay, I wanted a tan. I lay in…

spring clean your mental health

It’s a busy time to be a uni student. What with assignments, exams, presentations and classes still happening, you tend to forget about your well-being. A lot of the time when uni gets stressful I tend to eat like crap, and sleep comes secondary to deadlines. While this seems like it might be the most efficient way to get things done, it’s not. Your mental health needs just as much attention as your uni work. If you’re starting to feel the…

the third year panic, and why it’s normal

“So what are you doing after your degree?”   There is nothing so frustrating as someone who asks you about your life goals. The whole where-do-you-see-yourself-in-five-years conversation is something I actively avoid. Not because I don’t want to talk to them (…well, maybe), but mostly because     When you get to your third year of uni, you start to realise the imminent approach of *~adulthood~*. Yes, your 18th birthday meant you could buy alcohol, but finishing uni means you…

cut your shop budget without cutting the food

Put on your bibs and sharpen your forks. This is a food blog.   Food is pretty much treated as the elixir of life when you’re a student – especially since it is. But our love for food borders on a line somewhere between religious worship and unhealthy adoration. Admittedly, in my poorest of uni student days I pretty much ate whatever wasn’t going off, including stuff that was past its ‘use-by’ date. I’m not proud of it. But eaters…

If you’re finding the job search a bit tricky right now, it could come down to a…
