We're Just Lonely People

The past few weeks have definitely been some of the busiest so far this year. After having lessons on and off for the past five years I finally passed my driving test! Learning to drive hasn't been easy and it still doesn't seem real that I actually have a license and will never have to go through the torture of a test again! I'm currently looking for a little car and I can't wait for some independence and the chance to visit lots of new places.

Yesterday I had my last exam and finished uni forever! It still hasn't sunk in that I never have to sit in the library/write another assignment/go to another lecture again. Part of me is gutted as I have so many amazing memories and part of me can't wait to start the next chapter of my life! I went on my last night out with my coursemates last night which was hilarious and was the perfect ending to the past four years! I will hopefully be graduating in July but now I need to move out of my flat (which i'm really sad about), move back home and start job hunting!

Sage 12.03.2008 - 03.05.2015

Earlier this month I made the heartbreaking decision to have Sage put to sleep after seven years together. Going into the garage and not having her sitting there with her nose pressed against her cage waiting for a treat is taking some getting used to but I can sit here knowing my decision was the right one and she never suffered. She is very much missed but i'm sure another rabbit will find its way into my life in a few years when I have a house of my own.

YouTube Favourites: Spring / Summer 2015

I've been wanting to write this post for a while as I love finding new YouTube videos to watch and thought i'd share my three current favourites. I don't watch as many videos as I used to as i'm never sure if I can trust all the sponsored content that's around so a lot of my favourites are people I can relate to who make videos for themselves :)

I've been following Tami's blog for a while and love her recent venture into YouTube. Her style videos always make me want to spend ££££ and I have serious hair envy too!

Zanna Van Dijk
I've already mentioned my love of Zanna's recipes and her YouTube is great if you're interested in health and fitness. She always inspires me to do a bit of exercise and eat the right foods and I know I can trust the advice she gives.

Hannah Maggs
I'm sure everyone is subscribed to Hannah but if you're not you're missing out! I love my Sunday night ritual of watching what her little family have been up to and Stef's editing is always perfect. There's always something that will make me laugh and a new band or song I discover from the videos too!

Eating Clean: Healthy Banana Treats

I recently found Lottie's YouTube channel and after watching her healthy desserts video I was feeling inspired and thought i'd give these really simple banana and almond butter bites a go.

All you need is a banana, some almond butter (I use Meridian) and some dark chocolate (I use Lindt 90% Dark). They're super-versatile and you could use any type of nut butter or chocolate to suit your taste.

All you need to do is slice the banana up into chunks and spread a bit of almond butter on each piece. Melt the dark chocolate and drizzle it over the top. Put them in the fridge until the chocolate is set and then enjoy, or if you want them straight away just eat them with the melted chocolate - they taste good either way!
