Everyone Should Be In At Least One Musical | The Highlight Of My Week And Why You Should Join In!

My head is so full of all things dissertation at the moment (less than a week to go) that unless you want to hear all about the different presentations of Jackson Pollock, (which lets face it, you probably don’t) I’ve not got much else to offer in terms of inspiring blog posts at the moment! In fact, the most exciting thing that has happened to me in the last few days is that I’ve changed my juice from orange squash to summer fruits. Good decision by the way.

BUT there has been one thing that has really made me smile so I thought I would share that with you read more....

Pancake Day-te: A Fun Date Night Idea

So I've never really been keen on making pancakes but I do love them! And obviously with pancake day a few weeks ago it meant cracking out the recipe book and having a go myself. It is honestly one of the easiest things to make whether like like the thick american stacks (check out the Breakfast Club post here for more of these) or the light, rolled up crepes. Ever since I have been craving them, so read on to see why pancakes aren't just for Pancake Day...

London: Free Hugs And Filming

So as you may already know, because we got very excited and tweeted A LOT, this week Meli and I were in London to watch the beautiful, amazing, inspirational, just brilliant in every way person that is Beyonce. She was incredible. Of course. And we'll be putting a post up very soon for you to read all about that.

But while we were there we thought we may as well stay in London for the night and spend the next day exploring all the exciting things that it has to offer. As it turned out we were both feeling pretty sleepy and the weather was so lovely that we decided to change our plans and have a relaxing day filled with eating lots of food and sitting in the park.

But is there really any academic essence, or any point at all in fact, that art students like myself can take from this? Or should we be offended that he has the audacity to stick blue tack on the gallery wall and give it a work title and place in the guidebook? Read on to find out more about the exhibition...

Cinemas: The Cheap, Cheerful And Just Incredibly Cool

Recently I've been visiting the cinema a lot more than usual, but this time instead of it being the film choices that tempted me in it was actually the cinemas that I really wanted to see! The movies were good too, obviously, but it's these two slightly different from normal cinemas that I really want to rave about! read more...
