What to pack for a European city break

Travelling to cities in Europe is one of the most popular holiday destinations- especially among students. Here are all of the essential things you need to pack when travelling on a city break.

  1. Passport (although that is blatantly obvious)
  2. The correct currency for the country (euros, crowns, pounds etc)
  3. I would always advise taking a student card as a lot of attractions offer a cheaper student price
  4. Comfortable clothes. Although walking the streets of Paris or Milan may seem like a fashion parade, it is still a good idea to take comfortable clothes and shoes. You can still look chic in a pair of jeans and trainers.
  5. Toiletries (especially skincare) when travelling your skin can dry out and break outs become more likely. Make sure you pack all of your best skincare products to prevent this.
  6. A camera. Any city in Europe is packed with amazing scenery which you won’t want to miss snapping a pic of.
  7. Some evening clothes. Prague is a great example of a city with a buzzing and affordable nightlife. Don’t forget to pack an outfit to impress on a night out.
  8. European plug adapter. You can’t charge your phone without it.
  9. A day bag. As long as you can fit your money, phone, passport/id and sunglasses, then you’re good to go.
  10. Medication. Anything you have to take daily to things like ibuprofen and plasters.  You never know when you might need them.

And that is pretty much all you need to pack for any European city break.

Have a safe flight!



Hollywood pooches unwanted in Essex

When it comes to rescue dogs almost all of us think of  “problem dogs” but that is not the case anymore. Man’s (or woman’s) best friend is being put on the back burner, with more and more “Paris Hilton dogs” being abandoned and unwanted in Essex.

Jackson the toy poodle, 3 years old

Mistley Place Park is a pet rehoming center based in North Essex. The center takes in unwanted dogs, cats and other small animals with the aim to rehome them.  At the moment they have three Chihuahuas for rehoming, Chloe, Yogi and Maggie.

REVIEW: Hand To God

4/5 stars Hilarious

Based in a small religious town in Texas a church puppet club ran by widow Margery (Janie Dee) sounds like the safest place on Earth. That is until her son, Jason’s (Harry Melling) satanic sock puppet Tyrone possesses his hand, of course!

Hilarious from start to finish, Robert Askins’ Hand to God, tells the story of how struggling teen, Jason, battles some of the most pressing issues in his life. Girls, his mother and the bully, Timothy (Kevin Mains).

After telling Jason he can help him with all of his troubles, Tyrone, then begins to shout his foulmouthed comments, vandalize the church and even bite off someones ear!

Short but brilliant, it’s perfect for those who have a very dark sense of humor, if you liked Avenue Q, you’ll love this!

Hand to God is in the Vaudeville Theatre until June 11th 2016.

How I lost 10lbs in 3 days

I know what you’re thinking, 10lbs in 3 days?! Impossible. But it isn’t.

If you’re anything like me and love your food and hate exercise this is probably the diet for you. I recently discovered a diet plan called “The Military Diet” which sounds a lot more scary than it actually is. A lot of the diet is based around foods like tuna, egg and even ice cream.

This is an illustrated version of the diet plan
