Buying Christmas gifts can be hard, but if you know someone a little obsessed with Paris like myself, then look no further! I have searched through Etsy to find some of my favourite items that I think would be perfect for those Francophile friends of yours.
Check out my blog post of all the best things to see and do in 24 hours in Paris. Get away from the tourists and head over to the secret gems that Parisians don’t want you to know about. Continue reading “24 hours in Paris: things to see and do”
September and October was full of travels! I recently headed off to Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Paris. Check out this blog post all about these travels. Continue reading “September and October travels: Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Paris!”
Today is the beginning of November, and you know what that means? The countdown to Christmas can officially begin! (Albeit still a wee bit early…) That’s right, there’s only 53 days till Christmas – and when you include all the days when you might be working, socialising, and those general c-b-a days, that doesn’t leave you very long for your christmas preparations. To make life a little bit easier I have designed and created my very own selection of hand-made Christmas cards that are now available to buy on my Etsy shop. You can get yourself a variety pack of 6 Christmas cards here, or perhaps just the one card for that someone special. Either way, these bespoke and original hand-made cards are the perfect way to wish loved ones a happy holiday.

When I was back in Oxford, around January time, there were rumours flying everywhere that the Benedict Cumberbatch was to grace his presence at Exeter College filming for a new movie. Whilst it turned out that the whispers of Cumberbatch’s appearance were false, Exeter College chapel did turn out to be a filming location for a movie that he was in: Marvel’s Dr Strange. I went to see the new Dr Strange movie last night, and it was so cool seeing Exeter College chapel in the middle of the film with Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen. The movie reminds me a lot like Inception with its kaleidoscopic scenes and manipulated cityscapes, and the same happens to the interior of Exeter College chapel. Here are a few of my favourite photos that I’ve taken in the chapel, alongside with the screenshots from the Dr Strange film – I would definitely recommend seeing it. Yay for Oxford University being used in Hollywood blockbuster films!
