Sun’s Out, Brum’s Out: Things to do in Birmingham for Summer 2022!

If you’ve read my recent blog, I dropped down a list of things you can do alone this summer. And of course, I shouldn’t overlook the things you can do with your family and friends as well. So for today’s blog, I thought I’d write […]

Summer Bucket List: Solo Edition

Summer Bucket List: Solo Edition

The weather is getting warmer, the skies are becoming clearer (well… not really, but we’re not gonna talk about that 👀). It’s time to shove all the woollen jumpers and thick coats to the back of the closet and pull out the denim shorts and bikini […]

Student Tips: Self-Care Edition

Student Tips: Self-Care Edition

By the time this blog has been published, I will have already finished my second year of uni. Although I wouldn’t lie about the fact that for the past few weeks before I finally clicked the ‘submit’ button on Canvas, I have been under pressure […]

National Macaroon Day!

National Macaroon Day!

Macaron or Macaroon? 31 May is unquestionably National Macaroon Day, and it is unmistakably an American celebration, as the macaroon is a uniquely American cookie! The perplexity, on the other hand, is understandable. The origins of macaron and macaroon are similar, and many of the […]

Urie Diaries: A Day in London

It’s been so long since I have written an entry for ‘Urie Diaries,’ so I thought today would be a good chance to revisit the series. The 9th of April was the beginning of our Easter break, so I thought I’d come home. At first, I […]

Time to Say Goodbye

I’m sorry to say that this will be my last blog as a UCBlogger. I would like to thank you, everyone, who has supported me throughout the journey, right from the beginning when I barely knew anything about blogging. Blogging is a fantastic experience and […]

An Experience: The Phantom of the Opera

If you have read my previous blog from last week (which you can find here if you want to check it out), I finally had the opportunity to watch the Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre. It’s one of the longest-running West End […]

Guy Fawkes Night: Why do we celebrate?

Guy Fawkes Night: Why do we celebrate?

“Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.” Every year on 5 November, Brits gather around and set off a range of rockets and illuminations to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night, which originated […]
