Mind The Gap…

Can we first spare a moment of silence for the man, the legend….50 Cent. The G that got rich and didn’t die trying, and recently managed to bankrupt himself in a coke storm of (borrowed) cars, gold chains and hoes. If theres one thing that Mr Cent has taught me, its that even if you go from rags toContinue reading “Mind The Gap…”

Overpacked and Unlucky…

Today I have come to realise one very important fact: I do not have the luck of the rabbit’s foot when it comes to team games. Having a family mostly born and raised in East London, and coming from Essex I am an avid (in not knowledgeable) supporter of West Ham United football team (comeContinue reading “Overpacked and Unlucky…”

What just happened?

If I could only use one word to sum up the past few weeks it would have to be bizarre. To be honest, I’m surprised that I can even remember my own name… Lets cut the crap. *Life update klaxon* One of my best friends from school came down from Essex for an insane nightContinue reading “What just happened?”

Stalk Me (No, Actually)…A Day in the Life…

Well considering today is the two month anniversary of Overpacked and Underpaid, I thought that you and I would…you know…get to know eachother a little more…intimately. Here, I found your mind, I think you dropped it in the gutter… Boom boom! I’ll let myself out… Anyway all of you lovelies that actually read my posts, (andContinue reading “Stalk Me (No, Actually)…A Day in the Life…”

London…

As I type this I’m sat on a train at Paddington station, soon to be headed back to uni. I’m already missing home. I won’t lie, I’ve considered chaining myself to the gates and refusing to go…or just hurling myself out the window with my suitcase and three bags… …it’s all good I’ll hitch aContinue reading “London…”

The only way is Essex…

I’m home! I’m in complete bliss…I’ve seen my family, I’ve had a three hour soak in an actual bath, I’ve been cooked food and bought clothes and spent the entire morning curled up by the fire doing some reading. What’s that? You want me to address the elephant in the room? AKA the title ofContinue reading “The only way is Essex…”

Americanophile…

I’m not a 100% sure that this is a real word, but its on Urban Dictionary and that’s all that matters really isn’t it? Being British is all the rage right now what with One Direction and….err…One Direction and although I’m extremely patriotic and I love my home country, I kinda have a thing forContinue reading “Americanophile…”

Unpacked and over ‘ere…

And so finally my homecoming post arrives. It’s only two (okay three) weeks late…did I mention I was a horrific procrastinator? You might have read my blog post “Dropping Dollar Bill$” when I talked about booking my ticket home, well I actually arrived back in the UK on the 9th of August. A little partContinue reading “Unpacked and over ‘ere…”

Dropping dolla bill$…

In case you didn’t know, that’s gangster rap talk for spending money. And I’ve just dropped a lot of it…in fact, hang on, let me sit down a moment…I’m feeling a bit faint… Why, oh why, are flights from Spain to London so bloody expensive? It cost me £70 quid to fly out here, includingContinue reading “Dropping dolla bill$…”
