Home Comforts!

Hello Internet Peoples! How goes it? Well I hope! I know that some of you out there will be getting ready to move away for your Year Abroad, and so for the next few weeks, once a week, I’m going to do a YA themed blog post, covering a different aspect of moving away and…

Paris… Rebonjour!

Oh hey there Internet Peoples! As I write this, it’s coming up on midnight, and I’m cosied up in bed, suckling delicious rhubarb and custard sweeties, whilst my wee fingers tap away noisily on the keyboard. I should probably be sleeping, but meh, I already had a nap today. So as many of you will…

“Capture the Moment” Monday #1

Hello Internet Peoples! It’s 02h12 here in sleepy Northern Ireland, and here I am, wide awake on the Interwebs with you lovely folk. Oh, the perils of not being able to sleep! I just had a brainwave for something I’d like to start doing on my blog. Instagram is probably my favourite social media platform-…

My Cambridge Satchel: Review

Hello Internet Peoples! I hope you’re all having a relaxing weekend, full of happiness and lovely people and most importantly, pizza! (I’m typing this up whilst waiting on a big, dirty Dominos. Mmmm mmm mm!) I made a promise to myself this time last year that if I went on my Year Abroad and stuck…

That’s All, Folks!

As you’re reading this, I’m probably (hopefully!) about 36,000ft in the air, somewhere between Paris and Belfast, nose stuck in a book. I’m on my way home, for the very last time. That line was supposed to sound very cool, not quite so final and dark… :S I’m on my way home from France, for…

Paris Wednesdays: The One Where we almost Died…

Hello Internet Peoples! How’s it hanging? I hope if you’re reading this, you’re feeling smashing and splendid. I’m going to tell you about how a very simple, seemingly harmless trip to Paris turned into something… else. Something dangerous and scary but also life-alteringly hilarious. So if you like stories about people in danger on the…

Fevrier, 2016

Hellooooooooo Internet Peoples! Ca va? Today, I’m going to do my usual monthly update on my life here en France. February has been one of the BEST months yet; half term, holidays and home for a little bit were the highlights! View this post on Instagram Oh hey there Louvre!🔺 A post shared by Amber…

Ciao, Roma!

Hellllooooooooo Internet Peoples! What’s new? I hope that March is treating you well so far! Being  a language assistant isn’t always easy, which means that when half term comes along, you need to let your hair down, and treat yourself to a delightful holiday. Is that a convincing and justifiable reason for my having went…

OAP Saturdays: Paris

Hello Internet Peoples! I hope your Monday is going well and fabulously. I know mine as, seeing as three of my classes just got cancelled (I’m celebrating by sitting in bed, watching youtube videos and eating chocolate. Sheer class I am, you know yourself). So, Paris. Paris is too amazing and perfect, and when you…

OAP Saturdays: Pierrefonds

Hello Internet Peoples! If you study French, and you are doing a Year Abroad, I have no doubt that you’ve heard the word “profiter” a thousand times. Probably more. “Profiter” concerning your language, concerning work, concerning studying… but most importantly, concerning travelling. Living in Northern Ireland is flipping lovely at the best of times, but…
