The Best Bits | November 2016

Hello again,

These are some of the things that I got up to in November. It was a really good month for me, it’s left me feeling very content with the direction that my life is taking and everything I’m achieving. Proud moment over, this is what I got up to…

Bonfire Night

Although we didn’t end up watching a proper fireworks display, Cem bought his own fireworks so we didn’t completely miss out.

First day as an intern

I really enjoyed my first day and first month as an intern at Brain Füd. I feel like I’m learning a lot as time goes on that’s really helping my studies. The people I work with are fun and I actually don’t even feel like I’m working.



Handing in my first uni assignment

I actually thought my first assignment was due in on the 11th of November but lack of communication and understanding meant that the deadline was changed to November 25th. Although it was annoying that I rushed to finish my assignment only to find out we didn’t have to hand it in for another two weeks, I was still relieved to get it out of the way.

Oxford Street Christmas lights

Going to watch the Oxford Street Christmas lights being turned on was just as fun and as cold as I imagined. Like I said in my blog post about it, there were live performances from The Vamps and Lousia Johnson and everyone in the street counted down from ten for them to be turned on. The atmosphere was lovely.


My birthday

To be honest I wasn’t looking forward to my birthday that much. Who wants to spend their birthday in uni on a Wednesday? This aside, I still had a lovely day. Me and Cem went to Frankie & Benny’s for dinner and played TopGolf afterwards. We drew. We literally both scored 44.


A blog post will be coming soon about exactly what we did, but me and Cem went to Paris for the weekend. My favourite parts were seeing the Eiffel Tower, Canal Saint-Martin and Le Mur des Je T’aime.


Winter Wonderland

At Winter Wonderland we played a disgusting amount of carnival games, won two teddies and went ice skating. Although it rained and I thought I was going to freeze to death, it was a lovely day. We both managed to skate without falling over once and even saw a man propose to a woman – she said yes.

As always, thank you for reading.

I hope your November was as good as mine, and I hope your December is even better.

Bye for now,

  1. Sounds like you had such a lovely November ☺️ I love reading these kind of round-up posts! The Christmas lights at Oxford Street sounds amazing, much more exciting than the ones I saw in Winchester! And Winter Wonderland is somewhere that I’ve always planned to go but never actually get round to it! That proposal sounds so sweet and romantic! xx

    1. I did! November was a really good month for me. Winter Wonderland was definitely a big highlight because there’s so much to do – we were there for hours and we’re still going back on Sunday because it wasn’t long enough for us haha xx

      1. Ahaha I love that! I can imagine it to be a bit overwhelming with all the festivities to get involved with! Did you find it was swarming with people? That’s the one thing that puts me off 😔 But I bet the Christmassy vibes more than make up for it! xx

      2. We went on the second day of it opening so it was absolutely packed! However, it does die down as the month goes on and there’s so much space in the actual park that it doesn’t bother you xx

  2. I love the falling snowflakes on your blog! Happy Belated Birthday, sucks that it was on a Wednesday but I’m glad you still had a good day.

  3. Okay, a weekend in Paris sounds amazing! But that would be a long flight from a California just for a weekend lol

  4. November sounds like a good month for you! Congrats on the internship. Happy belated birthday!!
    PARIS!! That’s awesome too, and those Christmas lights.

  5. Sounds like you had a great November! I love writing my November faves and hearing about what other people have been doing and enjoying. Hope you have a fab December 🙂

    1. They’re so much prettier in person – my pictures don’t really do them justice! And my Paris post is one of the most enjoyable posts to write… I can’t wait to upload it! X
