If there's one thing to know about me, is that I love good scrumptious food and amazingly tasting drinks. Especially if they happen to be local. I'm always at some restaurant or bar at least a few times a month, and when the lovely guys over at Restaurants of Leeds invited me and a +1 (I invited my mum, she needed a night off!) to the Malmaison Hotel to try out their restaurant, I could hardly refuse. I'm talking italian foccias, herby salmon and rum-based cocktails - after my own heart!

So, I graduated! This was probably the proudest and surrealist moment of my life so far, and Northumbria University was honestly the best experience ever. I wasn't sure whether to post about my graduation, but I feel I owe it to my audience when I kind of disappeared off the radar the past few months. Well, the past 3 years have been a massive struggle and full of stress, and in my final year I had to let my blog slide a little to bring my work up to the highest standard it could be - and for that sacrifice I actually achieved a First Class Honours (eek!) which is absolutely unbelievable for me. So, I guess it worked out in the end! Anyway, without rambling on and getting all teary-eyed and emotional, here's a few photos from my graduation, and of course, graduation outfit!

One day on my holiday I visited Symi, a tiny island just off the coast of Rhodes, nearer to Turkey. This little place was so beautiful, full of colourful villas, a harbour speckled with boats of all sizes and sponges. Lots of sponges - (the apparent birthplace of sponges haha) since the day was going to be hot and we were travelling by boat, I wanted to incorporate my outfit for style and function.....
