It’s been a while since I’ve written one of my “favourites” posts, so I thought I’d add another to the collection. Hope you enjoy <3
Blue light glasses
I got my blue light (blocking) glasses a couple of weeks ago and I am loving them. I know there’s a lot of scepticism surrounding them, but I eventually caved and decided to try them out. Since I spend so much time on a screen everyday (phone and laptop) due to uni and my job, I’d been getting pretty bad screen headaches. Since getting them, my screen headaches haven’t come back – so whether it’s placebo or genuine, something is working. I haven’t noticed any changes in my sleep, but I wasn’t expecting to.
lidl crunchy peanut butter
Bit of a random one, but my local Lidl have recently started selling their own 100% peanut butter (in smooth or crunch). And, guys, it’s amazing. It’s the perfect amount of crunchy whilst still being spreadable. It isn’t dry and it’s the ideal balance of salty without being too salty. Recommend!
For those of you that are out of the loop, I started a podcast with one of my best friends from uni and I’m loving it! It’s definitely been a bit of a learning curve, but it’s a wonderful passion project to sink our teeth into. If you want to check it out, click here.
Maya (my podcast co-host) recommended this podcast to our listeners and, after giving it a go, I am hooked. It’s hosted by James Acaster and Ed Gamble and it’s all about food. They interview a guest each episode, asking them what their dream menu in the dream restaurant would look like. It’s fair to say your mouth will be salivating by the end of each episode! The hosts are also hilarious, so you’ll have plenty of laugh out loud moments.
Gordon’s orange gin
Bit of a weird one, but I’m currently loving Gordon’s orange gin. It’s not too sweet (like the pink gin), and pairs perfectly with some lemon & lime-ade (if that’s how you spell it). A cheeky gin & lemonade never hurt nobody 😉
Klara and the sun
I just finished Ishiguro’s new book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’d probably give it 4/5 stars, just because I thought the second half of the book was a *slight* let-down compared to the first half. But it was still great and I would recommend it to anyone.
Writing for the student (newspaper)
The Student is the University of Edinburgh’s student-run newspaper and I’ve been writing for the lifestyle section since January. The editors are a lovely bunch of girls and so are all the regular contributors. It’s been a great way to keep inspired and write a variety of pieces – as well as getting published in their bi-weekly print edition! If you live or study in Edinburgh, you can get a copy for free from various outlets in the city as well as the main library.
brisk, windy walks
I don’t know about where you are, but it has been so windy recently! Although I don’t love the wind, I’ve been a big fan recently of brisk, windy walks. I find them incredibly invigorating and they really lift your spirits, even if the weather is a bit shite. Donning your coat and zipping it all the way up to fight off the wind feels like a bit of an adventure. Because anything goes in Covid times, am I right?
Anyway, I’m going to conclude this post there. I hope you found it interesting and maybe even inspiring! Lot’s and lot’s of love from me 🙂
