Graduation

This week I graduated from the University of Worcester with a First Class Honours degree in Journalism. Yes, it is November and unlike most universities, this is the month when all graduation ceremonies are held. (The leaves actually made a nice background for photos!) It's been a long wait since June, when we all found out … Continue reading Graduation

My Map of You – Isabelle Broom Book Review

When I began reading My Map of You I was prepared for an enjoyable but typical chick-flick - one with an obvious romance and some minor complication before it all ended happily ever after. What I didn't realise, was that there was going to be some added mystery, a range of amazing, funny characters and a … Continue reading My Map of You – Isabelle Broom Book Review

The Girl On The Train

With the extensive advertising appearing everywhere possible, you may be aware that the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins has been transformed into a film which recently hit cinemas in the UK. The book was very well received by everyone who read it - including myself. It was exciting, scary and an addictive read. The only … Continue reading The Girl On The Train

The CF Trust are now working hard to promote … Continue reading Things you may not know about Cystic Fibrosis

Living in a girls-only student house

During my years at university, I only lived with girls. Our first year flat happened to be girls only, and we made such good friends that we decided to extend our existing living situation and move into a house together for the rest of university. Luckily, we seemed to get on and I had some of the best times … Continue reading Living in a girls-only student house

Loungs

As I have definitely mentioned on this blog before, I made a magazine about Cystic Fibrosis for my dissertation. As a young person with CF, I knew there was little information out there which specifically targeted young people. I found this gap in the market and created an idea which I then designed into a … Continue reading Loungs

Body Image

Body image is a subjective topic. What one person thinks is an unattractive aspect of themselves, may be another person's favourite thing. But, no matter what other people may think, it all comes down to what you think about yourself and this is the first hurdle to overcome. A positive mindset I can't say I've ever been truly happy … Continue reading Body Image
