Living Life to the Full | Letters in Lockdown #2

The word ‘zoom’ has a whole new meaning, we’re getting savvy with booking online shopping slots, and we could probably measure out exactly 2 metres by eye. The novelty and the shock of change is wearing off and we’re now softening the soles of this ‘new normal’.  ‘New normal’ – Oh, if I had a…

Where is the Hope? | Letters in Lockdown #1

Suuuuurprise!! I’m back! I apologise. I took a little break and I feel a little ashamed at how long that break lasted. But with a schedule stretched every which way and the right side of my brain shrivelled like a raisin, it was inevitable.  But then, life changed. My life changed, your life changed…the life…

A Spot O’ Hygge | 5 Things I Love About Autumn

I love Autumn – it’s my absolute fave. Unfortunately, so far this year it’s been a bit naff. Rain, rain, oh and more rain. It really does put a dampener on your day, quite literally. It’s lovely and cosy when you’re inside and the gentle patter against the window lulls you to sleep. But when…

I’m back in Sheffield about to embark upon my fourth year and although I…

‘Treat Yourself’ Thai Curry Paste

Curry. It’s a winner in my book. There’s nothing quite like coming in from the cold in the autumn and knowing that a steaming bowl of something spicy is waiting for you to warm your cockles. Or if you’re a student like me and the thermal, two jumpers, dressing gown, hot water bottle and four…

The ‘B’ Word | Thoughts on Body Image

We have all, at one point or another in our lifetime, looked in the mirror and gone, ‘ugh’. For some, it might be once in a blue moon, like waking up after a bad night to eye bags the size of France. For others though, that ‘ugh’ is a frustrated sigh. I have tried everything…

Psalm 91 | God’s Promise

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been delving most mornings into the New Testament and learning more about what it is to live for Jesus, falling more in love with Him as I walk atop every mountain and through every valley. I’ve been taking it very tortoise like. Before I jump into a book…
