Anxious Issues: The new project ~ #everydayissues

Hello my lovelies!

I'd like to let you all know about a project I'm starting up called #everydayissues which I will be running both here (as an extension of the Anxious Issues series) and on my YouTube channel. I will be connecting with people from across the world to discuss issues that we all have to deal with in our day to day lives.

I came up with the idea after so many of you wonderful readers emailed and messaged me saying how much you enjoyed my discussion of these topics and appreciate the help I'm giving. I love the idea that spreading the message of 'It's okay to talk about these things' is incredibly important to so many of you hence I'm bringing it up on a bigger scale.

I am already in touch with some bloggers from across the UK and Youtubers worldwide who are really excited about getting involved with the project but this post is really to invite all of YOU to get involved!

If you'd like to write a guest post here or take part in one of my discussion on my channel then get in touch! I want as many people as possible to be getting involved with project so if you think you or someone you know would have some great contributions to make, or if you'd like to find out more about the project then link them to this post and drop me an email showing your interest! 

If you don't want to email or get involved by writing or chatting to me, use #everydayissues to spread the word and spread the link to this page.

Thank you all so much for your support and I can't wait for us to get started on this journey.

Love you all!

Adventures in Oxfordshire

Hello my lovelies!

I recently took a trip to Oxfordshire to stay with my chummy Megan in the lovely little village of Kirtlington. If you'd like to check out some of Meg's writing, head on over here to read her guest post on this very blog! Now, I have never been to Oxford - at least, not that I remember - so I was super excited to be seeing such a well known town as well as the home county of my friend. It was a rather rash decision and arrangements for my visit were made less than a week before I went but boy am I glad I got to go!

It was absolutely lovely to spend time with one of my best friends outside of the University atmosphere. Upon arrival we took a little wander around Oxford, taking a peek in some of the shops and having a bit of a catch up. Something we do on a regular basis at Uni of course, but it's always nice to be somewhere different. We caught the bus from Oxford to Kirtlington which is the most beautiful little village I think I've ever seen! The bus ride was rather amusing as it was all windy country roads and barely any traffic but as we came to Kirtlington I found myself admiring the cute houses and set up of the village. Such adorableness! 

Anywho, most of my 3 day visit consisted of shopping as we visited Bicester Village and the centre of Bicester and I spent money on some new clothes (YAY!). We also spent a little bit of time in one of the local pubs on my first night - next time I'll have to remember there's no streetlights.. finding my way in the pitch black is a rather interesting experience! We took a little evening stroll to the park on the other (where we filmed my latest YouTube video!) and it was overall a really lovely trip to make; I'm so grateful to Meg and her family for letting me stay with them. 

Here's a few pictures from my trip, enjoy!
