  It’s the 5th of November in the UK. People all going crazy about fireworks and burning some guy in a bonfire, and you are there wondering ‘Where have I ended up?’. Do not sweat it. It’s a totally normal thing, well at least here, and a pretty nice holiday to be honest. There are […]

Cooking – Easy and on a budget!

We all look forward to leaving the comfortable nest we call home. We grow up and the time comes when we need to spread our wings and take care of ourselves, gulp!  Once you move out, everything is sweet, you don’t have to clean daily, leave dishes to “soak in” for a couple of days, […]

Living a low cost budget life in the UK

Let’s face it, a student’s finances are not amongst the richest ones. We know that most students live on a budget and try to spend as less as they can. When you are a student your favourite phrases while shopping become – “Buy one, get one free!”, “Three for the price of one” and so […]

How to stay healthy in the office

Leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle is challenging but it can be even harder when you work behind a desk. You sit for a long period of time in front of a computer, drink 3 to 5 cups of coffee per day and eat snacks in between your breaks. It is hard, we all do […]
