Sushi Samba, London

In my opinion, a good bar or restaurant is not just about the food and drinks on offer, but the experience. Sushi Samba is definitely an experience! Located in the Heron Tower in central London, Sushi Samba is sleek, classy and unique, offering a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. But it's not just the food that makes this place stand out. To reach the restaurant you must first step into a glass elevator and whizz up the side of the building like something out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, watching London gradually disappear beneath you until you reach the 37th floor. Up here you are transported into a different world filled with the warm reds, oranges and golds of the oriental decor, a stark contrast to the grey of the streets below. We settled ourselves down on top of a couple of stalls next to a beautiful orange leaf covered wall underneath an abundance of crystal chandaliers, and gazed out at the incredible view in front of us.

Golden Syrup Flapjacks

Another golden syrup recipe for you all! I've been doing quite well with my food recently! And I have to say, the aromas filling my flat right now after just baking these flapjacks are to die for... buttery, caramelly, sugary goodness!

Dolly's Tea Room and Wine Bar, Falmouth

If I had to choose my favourite place in Falmouth to have little bite to eat and a cup of tea to sip there's clearly only one winner: Dolly's Tea Room and Wine Bar! Ever since I first set foot in Dolly's in my first year at university, I have been back again and again, so I thought it was high time I wrote a post about just why it's my favourite.

10 Things You'll Learn at University

So now I've finished my degree I feel like I should share my university wisdom with you all like some wise old university guru. Going to university is definitely a life changing decision, and odds are you'll come out the end of it a slightly different, hopefully better and more mature (there's still time...) person than that little fresher tentatively moving into a big strange place all those years ago. So whether you're planning on starting uni this September and are curious to see what's ahead, are already at uni and need some reassurance, or are finishing uni and would like to know you're not alone, here are my top 10 things that you'll learn at university (alongside all that education stuff of course):
