10 Tips to Survive Studying Abroad

My year abroad in Madrid recently came to an end and what a brilliant year I had! So, as an excuse for me to reminisce on the amazing company, all the good times and the yummy Spanish tapas, here's a post to (hopefully) help some of you out that are jetting off to start your own adventures. This one is going to be quite a long one, so as they say grab a cuppa and get stuck in!

Summer Nails- Bourjois

I think my favourite colour to wear on my nails will without a doubt always be blue. For ages I was on the hunt for the perfect navy and the brightest electric and as much as I am always reaching for them, I wriggle my way back to this shade time and time again.

In true blogger style I'm sat in Starbucks writing this well over due post with the biggest mug of hot chocolate I have ever set my eyes on. (I can't quite deal with the stereotypical latte's and mocha's, I'm no where near that stage of adult hood yet). Oh, also listening to a 'Throwback Thursday' playlist on Spotify that I cannot get enough of at the moment!

These last couple of weeks have been hectic! My life is being taken over by essay after essay- not cool! I can't believe this is my first post since I've given my hair a bit of a chop! It's surprisingly growing quite quick and I feel like I'm missing the shortness already and that scares me because I will probably end up going shorter!

In the airport on my way back to Madrid I couldn't resist a little stop off in duty free. Who can't not have a look in there, come on, seriously? Because my student loan hadn't dropped yet, I was reluctant to go in there with the purpose to buy anything. Instead I sort of went in with the sole purpose to have a browse at all the pretty make up I will never allow myself to buy and all the too tempting chocolate (which I'm sure is so much more expensive than outside the airport).

This post is long overdue, since the pictures were taken in London and I've now been back in Madrid for almost two weeks, oopsy!

As a Christmas present for my boyfriend Ryan, I booked us places for rice and rolls the Yo! Sushi School in Camden for last Saturday. We had a great two hours making copious amounts of sushi, all thanks to the 'sushi master' who taught us through step by step and was a really friendly and happy chappy!

When we arrived we were greeted with a free green tea (I had never ever had one before, but my was it yummy!) and the set up above. A plate filled with avocado, cucumber, carrot, sesame seeds, chilli powder, tofu, egg, fish eggs, crab, our own rolling mat to take home, a step by step booklet (including a 25% off voucher for our next Yo! Sushi trip) and two cute trays to take all our food home in! There was no way that I thought we would fill them both, but we made so much I couldn't fit it all in!!
