Time Machine - An Exhibition That Can't Be Ignored


Bold, bright and seeping into every area of the gallery - Time Machine is an exhibition that can't be ignored.

The work takes over the space creeping into almost every room. Initially starting off with the occasional piece that you might identify as looking slightly out of place, and then as you move closer to the main exhibit of Joana's work you become surrounded by a vast display of her pieces. This really is one of the most engaging exhibitions I have seen in a long while. Read more...

Options After University - What Now?

If you're not sure what you want to do next year - don't panic! There are lots of different routes you could take and this is what makes it so difficult to decide, but hopefully this little blog post will help you figure it all out. Here we go...

SUMMER 2014: Top 3 Student Travelling Adventures


So summer is fast approaching and as students we're trying to think of exciting ways to spend the months off uni that we are lucky enough to have. Some of you may have work or work experience lined up but if you're thinking of doing some travelling, now is the time to get planning. I can't stress enough how much you should make the most of this time and go exploring. Once in employment you won't have as big an opportunity as this one. Whilst I'm trying to figure out my summer plans I thought I'd take you through a few of the popular trips people my age tend to take. Do Thailand, Europe or Australia/New Zealand sound appealing?

Gym Wear Essentials: From Victoria Secret to H&M!

Obviously you don't need all these things to work out, you can throw on any old thing but it certainly helps! I've tried to incorporate several different shops and price ranges as there are so many alternatives out there. Maybe investing in some fresh workout clothing will motivate you? And even if little exercise is being done at least you'll look good! Check out some things I've had my eye on...
