Why I Love Yellow

Why I Love Yellow

Yellow, the colour that’s currently on trend. But, why? What makes it so special and why do I love it so much? I am not sure where my ‘obsession’ began but I have always known I have had a secret love for the colour.

T-Shirt Hands Crossed

First of all, clothes look so gorgeous with the colour yellow. In this photo, I am wearing a t-shirt with a lightning bolt design filled with musical instruments and equipment.

T-Shirt Close Up

It is so bold and beautiful and allows you make such a statement! I mean, who would not want to wear this? Yellow is supposed to make you enthusiastic, which these pieces of clothing completely do!

Jumper Body

Another favourite yellow piece of clothing that I own is my yellow jumper. It is a completely different shade of yellow which actually can be worn with anything!

Jumper Sleeve

It is so warm and it a tiny bit big for me so makes it so cosy! The colour yellow is actually known to promote clear thinking and quick decision making.

Pineapple with Window

Yellow also fits with any room decor, such as this pineapple which actually lights up with multiple different colours!  The pineapple just fills me with joy and happiness whenever I see it.

This is why I love yellow.  Obviously, yellow is the most perfect colour in my eyes and perhaps now it is yours too.



What I Eat in A Day as a Vegetarian​ (Weekend Edition)

What I Eat in A Day as a Vegetarian​ (Weekend Edition).jpg

Food, one of the simple joys in life. I am constantly fascinated by what other people eat and their dietary and lifestyle requirements. But I’ve never thought about sharing what I eat! Being a vegetarian, some people are so intrigued by eating without meat and for them, it would be one huge struggle. So, in this post, I am going to show how easy it is to switch some things you eat and share what I ate on an ordinary Saturday.


Breakfast at the Weekend

Every Saturday, me and my family have croissants! It is a kind of tradition and when I eat them I know the weekend has begun. I had these with some jam and chocolate sprinkles which my Dad brought back from the Netherlands. These chocolate sprinkles are so delicious because they are pure chocolate and have such a rich flavour.


Lunch at the Weekend

For lunch, I had a tomato, cheese and pesto panini made with ciabatta. I love paninis because have such an amazing crunch when you bite into them and you can get so creative with what you put inside them. Afterwards, I had some grapes, kiwi and apple.


Dinner at the Weekend

For dinner, my Dad made this mix of Indian dishes which was gorgeous. He made gunpowder potatoes, mushroom and spinach bhaji, lentil dhal and chapatis. Indian cuisine is probably one of the best in the world, it is just so full of flavour.


Dessert at the Weekend

Now I don’t have this every time I have a meal, but my twin brother actually got an offer for six free doughnuts at Krispy Kreme! Our family decided to share them and I chose to have the lemon meringue, it was so sweet and bursting with filling.

Hopefully, you found this post interesting to see what I ate on a random day at the weekend. I am also going to do another one of these but on a school day, so keep an eye out for that!

Blueberry Vegan Pancakes

Blueberry Vegan Pancakes (Side)

If you didn’t know, I’m vegetarian. But ever so recently, I’m trying to become vegan. However, one thing I could not live without would be pancakes if I went vegan. So, once I discovered you still could make pancakes, I decided to try them out. To spice them up, I added blueberries, because, well everyone needs sweetness in their lives?!


  • 250ml of porridge oats
  • 160ml of soya milk
  • 1 ripe, large banana
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Oil for the pan


  1. Blend the oats in a blender until they resemble a flour like texture.
  2. Add the soya milk, banana, cinnamon and vanilla.
  3. Mix until they are fully combined and are not too liquidly.
  4. Heat up a pan and add some oil.
  5. Spoon some of the mixture into the pan.
  6. Cook for two-three minutes on one side.
  7. After flipping it over, sprinkle some blueberries over and push them down to ensure they release all their juice.
  8. Slide them onto a plate.

Blueberry Vegan Pancakes (Over)

They actually are naturally sweet, so don’t require any more ingredients but for toppings, I chose some lemon and sugar and jam.


My Favourite Classic Books

My Favourite Classic Books.jpg

Have you ever heard the phrase, “oldies but goodies?” I think that this is used more nowadays because of how many people focus on the new and not the old. Sometimes, the old can be exactly the same as the new, or perhaps even better. Books are a perfect example, so, in this post, I am going to be sharing my favourite books that were published in years gone by.

What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge

What Katy Did.jpg

This story is about a family whose eldest child is called Katy. She is very mischievous and is always getting in trouble. One day, she quarrels with her aunt and pushes her little sister down the stairs. Afterwards, sulky and miserable, Katy decides to try out the new swing in the woodshed although Aunt Izzie has forbidden it. Katy swings as high as she can and then, as she tries to graze the roof with her toes, the staple gives way. She falls hard, bruising her spine.

Although this is a battered book, it is still an amazing tale and has a beautiful meaning behind it.

The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm by Norman Hunter

The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm

This book contains multiple different stories that are all focused on one character, Professor Branestawm. He is an absent-minded professor is oblivious to the chaos his crazy creations cause when they go wrong.

I got this book as a present after watching the BBC Adaptation. I find that this book is so well written and is great as a light read when you don’t want to think too much. This version of the book also has some incredible illustrations which add to the marvellous storyline.

The Railway Children by E. Nesbit

The Railway Children.jpg

The Railway Children is about three children who live in a respectable suburban villa with a wonderful mother and father and a cook and servants until one-day great disgrace and poverty befall them. They are forced to move and mysteriously their father disappears. In their new house, they get up to lots of adventures and make lots of friends, in particular, a man who they only know because of the train that passes nearby.

I’m not sure how old my copy of the book is but the story will forever live on. I cannot describe how much I love this book for its humour and goodwill.

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier


Rebecca’s narrative takes the form of a flashback. The heroine, who remains nameless, lives in Europe with her husband, Maxim de Winter, travelling from hotel to hotel, harbouring memories of a beautiful home called Manderley, which, we learn, has been destroyed by fire. The story begins with her memories of how she and Maxim first met, in Monte Carlo, years before. The story continues on with her previous adventures and what happened.

I do remember struggling with this one when I first read it but once I got into it, it was a superb read.

Alice in Wonderful by Lewis Carroll

Alice in Wonderland.jpg

Alice is sitting with her sister outdoors when she spies a White Rabbit with a pocket watch. Fascinated by the sight, she follows the rabbit down the hole. She falls for a long time and finds herself in a long hallway full of doors. She discovers an entire world beneath and gets into a huge adventure.

I’m not actually a huge fan of fantasy but this book is the perfect blend and has a beautiful plot.

So, they were my favourite classic novels. I do have more and hopefully, I can eventually share them all with you.

Habits Everyone Needs to Adopt

Habits Everyone Needs to Adopt

Sometimes life can get so overwhelming, life can seem so irregular and even unnecessary. But, there are some habits that you can adapt to make everything seem more regular and pleasant.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drink Plenty of Water.jpg

I feel like this is an obvious one, but it is essential every day to drink plenty of water. Being hydrated is so important for your health. But, it keeps you focused and productive as well as keeping you happy and calm.



At the end of the day, I am sure everyone just wants to collapse and sleep. However, there is also something at the back of our heads that will not go away. Writing thoughts and opinions down really can help you think more deeply about things and can, in turn, lead to a better sleep.

Do Something You Love

Do Something You Love.jpg

Being busy with school can lead to endless hours of pure effort to make sure everything gets done. Sometimes doing so many things that you may not enjoy, everyone needs to ensure that they do something they love at least once in a while. It can take your mind off your busy life and put you in a better mindset.

Reward Yourself

Reward Yourself.jpg

Now, I am not saying you should do this every day, but no one should not reward themselves every so often. Everyone deserves it because it such a good motivator to work harder and develop in life. Go see that movie you wanted to see or make that trip to somewhere special.

Sleep Plenty

Sleep Plenty.jpg

Sleep is really important and it is shocking how many people derive themselves from sleep. Going to bed late may look cool, but to your body is not. It is so important to get a good night’s rest to ensure you can function properly in the morning.

Hopefully, these habits will make your life that tiny bit better. Perhaps these will improve your schedule or even make you more productive, calm or happy.

Poem: Light

If there is sun, there is light,

If there is moon, it is night.

If it is bright, surely everything is off-white,

If it is is dark, surely everything is moonlight.

If it is day, nothing is bad.

If it is night, something goes mad.

If I am safe, it must be light,

Or is it?


This poem was written after a trip to London and I felt inspired to right about the lights I saw.

My Love for Kånken

My Love for Kånken.jpg

After seeing these online and in-person, it was love at first sight with Fjallraven Kånken Bags. I was fortunate enough to have some money for my Birthday and Christmas, so I decided to buy one. Once it had arrived, I could not believe how gorgeous it was.

I ordered it in the Big Size which is also known as the Laptop Size. It is Royal Blue and I use it for school and for leisure.

Kånken Bag Cacti.jpg

It has two large pockets. The one at the front I use for storing my phone, pencil case and earphones.

The other pocket has a main compartment and then a thinner one for a laptop. In the main compartment, I store everything else I need from books to food.

Kånken Bag Cacti on Floor.jpg

Contrary to popular belief, the Kanken I have is actually very spacious inside. It fits everything necessary with room to spare.

It is really durable because it was designed for hikers or mountaineers and is waterproof which is perfect for the unpredictable British weather!

Kånken Bag Cacti for School.jpgOverall, it is an absolutely gorgeous backpack which has many uses and is definitely going to last me a long time.

Apple, Banana and Orange Smoothie

Apple, Banana and Orange Smoothie

A few days ago, I was lucky enough to receive a blender as a gift and of course, I had to try it straight away. But I did not have much fruit or vegetables to put in a smoothie so I decided to just put in whatever I had and it turned out amazing. It had such an incredible burst of flavour and woke me up ensuring I was ready for the day.


  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange
  • 1 banana
  • 120ml of soya milk


  1. Slice the banana into even chunks and add to the blender.
  2. Peel and divide the orange and place in the blender.
  3. Slice the apple into small pieces and add to the blender.
  4. Pour the soya milk on top of all the fruit.
  5. Blend on a burst rate for a minute or so then blend fully until it is a liquid.

Fruit for Smoothie

Hopefully, I can find some more recipes to make with my blender and share them!

My Cacti Obsession​

My Cacti Obsession.jpg

Cacti have just grown in popularity over the past few years and I cannot believe how many different types of the plant there is! I have become a tiny bit obsessed with them over a period of time and I wanted to share my cacti and what kinds I have. Unfortunately, I am awful at working out if they are cacti or a succulent. I believe it is a very difficult question to ask!


These were the first ever cacti I got. I got them from IKEA in a little set and they are absolutely adorable, especially because they are so mini!


This one I think looks like a little tree, ready to sprout.


This one I think looks like a weapon a cave man would use, strange as it sounds!


This one I think of as the classic cacti.


I would not call this a cactus, but this was the second plant I received. I got this from my Granny and to grow another one, all you need to do is pick one of the leaves off and plant it!


The plant did flower, however, it made a huge mess all over my floor. Hopefully, it will again soon, I got so excited when I saw a burst of colour.


Next is my biggest proper cacti. I think it is naturally grown like that, with a few of the same kind together.


I really need to get a pot for this one as the soil is collecting underneath!


This succulent I got from my twin brother for Christmas. I love the ombre effect with the colours, it looks gorgeous.

I am in the process of looking for more cacti to grow my collection. Who doesn’t love a good plant or two?
