4 Easy Vegan breakfast ideas for Back to School/University

Since its almost Back to School/uni time, I thought i would share with you some of my favourite quick and Easy Vegan breakfast ideas for when you don't have much time on your hands.
Which makes them perfect for a School/Work morning. 
I also want to mention that all of the recipes are not only Vegan but also Gluten free, and are adaptable to suit your own needs. 
Hope you Enjoy!...


The first recipe is this deliciously indulgent Homemade Peanut butter granola, Its definitely one for the sweet tooth.
This one does take a little overnight prepping, however once its made you've got a whole batch of it and have breakfast sorted for the week!
If your not a big PB fan you can also change it up for almond butter or cashew if you prefer!

What to take with you to University?

Continuing on the little University series I've got going on my blog at the moment, I thought I'd write a little post on this topic today, as when I first left home to go to university, unfortunately unlike everyone else I didn't get the memo to pack light!

I've never been a light packer, I am the kind of girl that takes 8 pairs of shoes on a 3 day break, and only wears 2 pairs the whole time!
Anyway when I left my parents home in Sheffield to move to London for uni, I had in mind that I would be moving to London forever, and 7 years later I am still here!
However unlike most people I packed up literally everything I owned, my whole wardrobe, every handbag I owned which was far too many, my jewellery collection, keepsakes, home-wear, and even boxes filled with stationary and different kinds of paper and card, and much much more!
My logic was that I didn't want to have to repurchase anything in London, because it would be so expensive.
Which is true, but when all of your stuff fills up your dads seven seater from front to back touching the roof, and there's no space for any passengers, not to mention driving down the M1,you may have gone a little overboard!

Ofcourse my dad was fuming and thought i was insane, but being my stubborn taurus self, I insisted I needed absolutely everything I'd packed.
Obviously I had the biggest shock of my life, when I arrived on campus and realised everyone else packed about one large suitcase full.
I looked like Elle off legally blonde when she arrived at Harvard, minus the all pink outfit, and chihuahua, I didn't go that far!
Then I saw my dorm room, it was no bigger than a small walk in closet, and me and my dad spent about an hour bringing all my stuff in from the car, luckily I was on the ground floor.
I then proceeded to freak out about where the hell I was going to put all my stuff, but being savvy I managed to squish it all in neatly.

Anyway this is basically my little story of how not to pack, I thought I would offer some tips on the essentials you really need to take, although after telling you this story, your probably not gonna take advice from me haha, trust me I've learned from my mistake!

1. Seasonal clothes
When you first move onto campus it will likely be in september/october, so its best to take mostly autumn/winter clothes as it will be winter for a long time, of course this depends on the weather of where you live.
But I would say take a few short sleeved tops as well as you can never predict the weather especially not in England!
Its a great idea to just take your seasonal clothes as when you go home for breaks, you can just take back your winter clothes and switch them out for spring ones and vice versa!
I'd recommend slippers and PJ's, and flip flops if you have a communal bathroom.

8 Tips for University Students

1 Get used to being broke..
Unless your lucky enough to have plenty of money already, chances are when your going to university for the first time you will probably be leaving your family home and having to make it on your own.

2 Budget!
This is probably the best piece of advice i can give you! Sit down and Workout how much money you have and how much you've got coming in, what your expenses are e.g food travel accommodation then workout how much you have left after these, for yourself e.g for clothes, going out etc if any!
Just don't go over that budget Ok!

Coffee Chat! #My week #Hedgehog

Hey guys,

Hope your well?
Its been a long time since I've done one of these coffee chats, mainly because my life's so boring and I have the same routine day to day, so I don't think there'd be much to tell you.
This week however has been a little more eventful.
So although this is called coffee chats, I am currently sipping on a well deserved glass of prosecco, it is the weekend after all!
If you wanna see a cute hedgehog continue reading!

How to get into a Fashion University in London?

Now that its getting close to Freshers Enrolments at University, I thought I would give some tips on those looking to get onto a Fashion Degree, whether that be this year or next, or in the future these tips may be helpful to you.
As someone who did a Degree in Fashion at a prestigious London University I thought I would give some insight on how to actually get into one because its a lot harder than most people think!

1. Be extremely Passionate about Fashion
Many people think that fashion courses are easy, fun and Glamourous, whilst they are fun if thats what you enjoy, its very competitive and far from glamorous the majority of the time.
If you don't Eat, Breath and sleep Fashion then its probably not for you!
