Finding a great pub within a walking distance from your home is rather exciting, especially if you have as much love for delicious food as Ben and I do. So once we heard about The Jolly Postboys, we decided to pay this pub a visit. Continue reading “Pub review: The Jolly Postboys – Temple Cowley, Oxford”
I was recently involved in a conversation about the upcoming General Elections and one lady said that she doesn’t believe in elections:
‘I don’t vote, I don’t see the point. One party promises to cut taxes, another to increase benefits, but all these things are small and unimportant. No matter who’s elected, they will still go and drop bombs on people and make huge nation- and life-changing decisions without public’s input.’
She was mostly opposed, with others in the discussion suggesting that she should show that she feels this way and still go to the polling station and just cross out the ballot as a sign of protest.
Estimated 64% of 18-24 year old didn’t bother voting in Brexit referendum, and look where it got us.
I don’t get to vote at the general election, but if I did, I would 100% go to the polling station and vote to make a point of my views.
You should too. Don’t forget to register to vote before 22nd of May.
You will find something you like.

We just got back from the best Ski trip ever at Les Acrs 1800, and I just can’t keep my emotions in! I literally was in tears on the last day – leaving the Alps broke my heart!
Secondly, I would like to thank my friends, who have been amazing this week and made the trip the best group trip I’ve ever been to.
Thirdly, I need to thank the weatherman, who granted us some fresh pow on the day we arrived.
My birthday is coming up, and I’ve already got an early present from Alice and Keaton – and what a present it is!
The guys got me a box with 25 items – for my age – and each item is so thoughtful! I’m going on a ski trip the day after my birthday, so this hamper is not only helpful, but will remind me of them throughout the trip (Keaton is coming with me, but Alice is far away in Edinburgh). The box came with a card explaining each item – I copied it from the card for you to read below 🙂
So what was in the box?
Today is International Bubble Bath Day, and seeing that it fell on a Sunday I decided to start my day with.. drumroll… A bubble bath! Not that I need an excuse – I could practically be a mermaid if you knew how much time I spend getting my fingertips all wrinkly. 🙂
What a year it’s been!
I have seriously mixed feelings about 2016. It’s been tricky and challenging , with so much change and so many losses, but I would like to believe that I came out stronger.
There have been so many amazing things though! I find reflecting back very helpful to identify the new goals, sooo let’s have a look what happened in 2016.
