How I Made my Prom Dress from Scratch

“Did it ever cross your mind that making your prom dress yourself could end up looking like a.) a bumblebee and b.) a Margherita pizza??”

What I’ve Learnt After a Month at University

Ask anyone; a standard hangout would be incomplete if not for the tried-and-tested routine of grabbing a meal together with your best mates and chilling out over that tasty new addition to your favourite local haunt. HOWEVER, while this can be a wholesome and great way to bond with friends, I’ve learned to embrace the…

A Beginner’s Guide to Pink Floyd

As one of the most well-known bands in rock and early psychedelic music, you might have heard of Pink Floyd – or, more likely, seen their most-associated album cover; a prism refracting a beam of light creating a rainbow.

Peaches, Cobbler, and Cream

If you like apple crumble, you’ll like this peach cobbler!

What has Heels and Looks Like a Disco Ball?

It’s been a while since we talked about footwear, so as a surprise, I present to you the sEXIesT, party-in-the-front-AND-the-back disco-ball pair of high heels I’ve ever footed the bill for. And have ever graced my shoe cabinet. And here’s the BEST PART – they’re covered in glitter from head to toe (you may grimace now)!…

My Worst Addiction

I’m a slave to chocolate, and by extension ice cream, cake, and a whole slew of sweet desserts. This holiday and particularly during my trip to Scandinavia during the past two weeks, it’s been getting worse, and the effects got quite noticeable. I didn’t like how slow and heavy my body felt from eating ice…

Home Economics 101

Ever since the chocolate cake, the oven has become one of our most-used pieces of equipment in the kitchen, second only to a tie between the rice cooker and the non-stick pan. The Realm of Textiles There was some leftover red crepe from last summer, two metres of navy lace from God knows when, and…

RUSSIA 2017 (Oct-Nov)

Photo Gallery To sum it up in three words: Buffet, Art, & Churches. Every breakfast: cold buffet table. Every dinner: black rye bread and margarine (always served piped in a dish), soup or salad, main course, and dessert. Buffet for lunch: thrice – once at Esse Jazz Club, where there was a live jazz band….
