I realise most people will be reading this post thinking 'wait, didn't you get home ages ago?!' Technically yes: I got home almost two weeks ago. I guess I've just been putting off writing this post for a while. I originally planned to write it while still in Spain and post it as my final… Continue reading Year Abroad / Hasta luego, España
If you've read my latest year abroad post, you'll know that the last couple of months have been really busy what with university and visits and Easter. Due to this, I had no time for last month's roundup, but here's a double whammy of March and April for you. Music There has been so much… Continue reading 2017 / March and April Round Up
Hola chiquitos! Since my last post a lot of things have happened. Jack visited Zaragoza, I went home for Easter, spent a considerable amount of time at the doctors' and in airports, and last week I returned to Spain for my final ten weeks here. It's amazing how quickly the last (almost) 8 months have passed… Continue reading Year Abroad / An overdue update
It's been over 6 months now since I hopped on that plane to Zaragoza and in some respects I honestly can't believe how quickly the time has gone!

Ahead of a North American tour and headlining Bushstock this summer, the band have released a double-A side single consisting of ‘Train Tracks’ and 'Tired As Fuck'. The latter is a… Continue reading Single Review / Tired As Fuck – The Staves
There are many things that have already characterised 2017 as another particularly awful year, but the return of Laura Marling is certainly not one of them. While the beginning of this year may have brought with it a new, strongly-opposed US President and several debates regarding feminism and women's rights, Marling has delivered some much-needed sunshine in… Continue reading Single Review / Wild Fire – Laura Marling
Hola todos! As you may have guessed from the title, I'm now officially back in Spain. I didn't blog over the Christmas period, not for lack of want but simply because I had no time at all. I spent a packed three weeks with my family, my grandparents, my boyfriend and some of my friends… Continue reading Year Abroad / Guess who’s back?
