Here’s why I love the uni gym

  I cannot get enough of the Danielle Brown Sports Centre here on campus!! Especially during revision period – it’s one of the few things that keep me sane. I like to schedule my revision around gym classes, so that I have no excuse to be lazy and not go.   There are so many […]

My friend and I got matching smoothie bowls, which were so delicious. She had a turmeric latte (the cat) and I had a rose latte, which sounds weird but is so lovely.

Leicester Hot Spot: Saints of Mokha

  I’m a huge fan of coffee shops. I can study in one for hours just because I love the ambiance and the smell of coffee. My favourite one is called 200 Degrees, but today’s spotlight falls on another one that I went to a few days before I left Leicester for Christmas holiday.   […]

Flourish Fair

  On 9th and 10th October, the uni held a Flourish Fair for helping students get settled into uni life, whether it’s for the first time or the sixth time (or anything in between). Below are some highlights I got while visiting – I’ll be blogging more about some of the stalls that were there […]

How I keep organised, revisited

There is no victory too small to celebrate and just getting through the year is a huge achievement.   Now it’s time to relax for the summer before getting back into it! But (and excuse me for pulling a classic Law Student […]

Let’s Disko: Sausage Rolls, Angels, and Three Years of Memories

  One constant in my life at Leicester for the past three years has been the uni club (the O2)’s night out on a Wednesday called Let’s Disko. I ended up going pretty much every single week for three years – now that’s commitment! It’s the cheesy pop hits night, which is so my thing. […]
