Recipe: Macaroni Cheese

My favourite food in the world is Macaroni Cheese. Unfortunately it's probably the unhealthiest and I'm yet to find a recipe that tastes as good as the proper version. This is how I make mine for the days when I'm feeling particularly rubbish.

Sheffield: The Wick at Both Ends

Catch ups with my flatmate from last year seems to always revolve around food! Next on our hit list was The Wick at Both Ends, found tucked between the student bars on West Street.

First up were cocktails, of course!

Home: Uni Room Decoration

I spent most of my 1st year with bare walls in my university accommodation as I really  didn't feel like I'd settled in. However, this is probably one of the most important parts to making it feel like you live there most of the year. So this year, when we moved into our house (which by the way is so much nicer than halls) I decided to get decorating straight away.

My most recent decor change was to the bright blue pin board - I bought some fabric from eBay and covered the pin board and now it looks so much better! I thought i'd make a display of my necklaces as I have nowhere to store them.

Product Rave: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

This is my favourite lipstick/lipgloss hybrid of the moment. I always receive compliments on my lipstick when I wear it so they must be doing something right. I spent a long time deliberating which colour to get so it's only natural that I'll go pick up the rest of the colours some time soon but I decided to go for Ole Flamingo! Maybe because I quite liked the name...

Sheffield: The Common Room

Pre-Bestival and Post-Birthday I headed up to Sheffield to check out my new student house and try and make it more homely. I also met up with one of my old flatmates, Zoe. It has become a tradition that when we meet up, we go for food so sticking with tradition we headed to somewhere we hadn't ventured before. The Common Room on Division Street describes itself as a 'unique and edgy American sports, pool bar and diner serving renowned pit grill bbq'.

Lifestyle: Bestival 2014

It's been a month since Bestival and I'm still missing the almost 24 hour music. It was my first festival and hopefully won't be my last. I spent ages trying to work out what to bring and I think I did well as I didn't need anything else and I used everything I took. The weather was on our side though so maybe I wouldn't be so positive if it was chucking it down.
Here are some of my favourite pictures from the weekend, apologies for the quality as I was too scared to take my good camera...

Lifestyle: Birthday Meal at Purnell's Bistro

After a night of many cocktails with my friends the night before my birthday, my actual birthday was a relaxed affair.. again because it was on the bank holiday. There was cake obviously, something I wish was on The Great British Bake Off as my mum's imagination ran wild by mixing my two favourite things, Bake Off and Doctor Who.

Lifestyle: 19th Birthday Cocktails

Hello! Long time no see - my excuses include laziness, going to Bestival in the Isle of Wight & lack of internet in our new student house, BT are not in my good books right now. I'm currently at home writing up a few blogposts so I can make a comeback in the blogging world.
