Hi guys! I hope all of you had an amazing November and are super excited for Christmas and that you’re ready to end this year with a bang. I know that I’m so ready to go home for the holidays, see my family, eat some island food and get my tan back. This month I made my very first smoothie bowl and I have to say it was my favourite discovery so far on the vegan journey that I’ve launched myself on. I then went on to make several other smoothie bowls as well as regular smoothies, yes in the cold single digit winter weather of London, prepping myself to make them on those hot afternoons at home while I bake under the sun. I love having so many ingredients readily available here so I…

These past couple of days I’ve been feeling super moody and down in the dumps. I was feeling so upset for no reason at all… okay maybe there is a reason but it’s an inconsequential one that really shouldn’t be stressing me out because I have so many more important things to worry about with midsessionals coming up and two essays due.

An essay to do, tutorials to plan, exams to make notes for, a reflective journal to write, a moot to prepare for, cases and cases and cases to read. If I’m not careful, it’s going to send me down an endless spiral where the only words that’ll come out of my mouth are ‘estoppel’ and ‘restitution remedies’. This doesn’t go just for law students. One of my best friends is studying medicine and (bless her) most of the words that come out of her mouth these days are ‘exam stress’ and ‘vulnus punctum aperta’. My friends and I went to an event at a big law firm a couple of weeks ago and the most important question out of my mouth as we mingled with everyone was ‘how do you maintain a reasonable work/life balance?’.…
