Momentary Favourites

Whenever all the creativity has disappeared, it's always a good time to do a post on favourite things of the moment! I always enjoy reading these posts as I like seeing what other people are enjoying so much as to put it on a favourites post!

This is a bit of a mix of things, but so is life. Once you've come back from that existential crisis I have just sent you off on, let's jump right in.

James & friends Notebook

I've posted on the James & friends range before, but at the moment I've been using this notepad a hell of a lot recently. This is my uni to do list book, my blog and YouTube idea book, my schedule book, and my future plans book. Essentially it contains 95% of my life. Without it I'd be completely lost, so thank you for being here notepad.

Japan Travel Guides + Learning Guides


So if I haven't banged on about it enough here, as well as all over Twitter, I go to Japan next month! Actually in about 3 weeks. Holy crap, there is so much to do. 

Over the last few months, I have ended up collating quite a few travel guides amongst other things to do with the Land of the Rising Sun! So today I thought I would share my recommendations and otherwise for which to buy!

The 2016 reading plan


It's 2016, and it has been for a good while, I'm just late to this writing this post. A friend and I have set each other the challenge of reading 20 books this year, and if we don't make the full 20, we must buy the other a book.

I'm extremely competitive, so by today, the 13th of February I have read: 0 books. 

I used to read every night before bed but then my obsession with Star Wars: The Clone Wars began, and I don't think I need to explain further.

So I thought I'd share a few of the books I intend to get through in the next few months! There are a ton of others, but I've featured them in book hauls on my YouTube channel before!

This is the first book I've been reading is this! It's interesting, and is written in the style of a non-fiction book. I like Star Wars. I like the Jedi. It's a good read.

Budapest- Part 3

Hello and welcome to my third and final Budapest blogpost!

You can find part 1 here, and part 2 here!

Whilst the first two posts covered 1 day, this last post covers the final day and a half. I decided to take less pictures on these days as I wanted to spend less time behind the camera! I spend too much time behind screens so I wanted to just allow myself to enjoy it and take it all in!

Blue Bird Cafe

First of all, we went for breakfast at Blue Bird Cafe! This place took us AGES to find, and I also had a rip in the heel of my shoes which meant my feet were soaked immediately. Not a good start to the day! We walked through a lot of central Budapest on our way there, and it was nice to see more of the city.

A sentiment I fully agree with.

Budapest - Part 2

Welcome to my second Budapest blog post, Budapost if you will, if you missed the first part, here it is!

So, this continues with the rest of my first day in Budapest, with crossing the Széchenyi chain bridge to Pest! This really reminded me of the Brooklyn bridge, although a fair bit shorter! 

The views from the bridge were incredible - the river is so clean! So unlike the Mersey and the Thames, which are both brown and gross. Why do we have to pollute them?!

Budapest - Part 1

Hello! I've just gotten back from spending a few days in Budapest, Hungary! Did you know it's actually pronounced 'Budapesch'?! Neither did I! It's also a city split by a river (the Danube) and on either side you have Buda and Pest! 

Going away was the perfect way to blow off steam after a very stressful few weeks, and to spend some quality time with some of my favourite people. This is time to reminisce and not get sad that none of us will be living in the same city, or even county come July. Why does uni life have to come to an end?!

I'm going to split this up into areas/sections since I don't really know how else to do it!

Margaret Island/Bridge

Margaret Island is a huge island in the middle of the Danube, which can be accessed via Margaret bridge, which also connects Buda and Pest. 

This is the bridge as seen from the Pest side, which is where we stayed!
