That part of England where the famous Harry Potter was shot. Yes, Oxford University is one of the best universities in the world with hundreds of courses and over 30 colleges, this is the to-go.
Ever since I went to visit Oxford when I was about 10, it has always been my dream to attend college here; this dream is never going to change. Yeah, it might not be the world’s best university or anything, but life is not only about the best. It is perfect in many (MANY) ways and it is the ideal dream university.
With all its old architecture and its shops and courses, Oxford has an impeccable reputation all around the world. It has been and will always be the university of my fantasies.
The Rickshaw Run is something I heard about recently. It is a 2000 mile drive in a tuk-tuk across India and takes place for raising money for a charity. It is the perfect travel experience and of course, amusing to no extent.
It spans the a load of the Indian subcontinent, with two weeks to complete the entire journey. You get to choose the charity that you help and it takes place three times a year. The starting and ending points vary between Shillong, Jaisalmer and Fort Kochi.
“Pimp” up your rickshaw and make it look outstanding – and also give it a unique name. The distance you cover is the same of London to Moscow, and the vehicle is only used for short jaunts around the city or village.
With India’s mind-blowing cullture, food and the various smells, this trip is one of a kind. You get to taste, see, smell and experience the varied culture of the different states in India and celebrate; while basking in the chaos of the towns.
This would be a thrilling experience, getting to be exposed to this kind of culture, while still being able to help and give back.
Some things I truly love and that make me feel better, or myself, or just make me happy in general.
What can I say, its my biggest passion ever. Music has helped me get through some of the hardest times in my life, and when I felt miserable it has always made me feel better.
I literally have no idea what I would do with my life if music wasn’t such a big part of it.
Every year, I do CAS week – or community service week. 8 hours a day for a week. We go off to a different place each year and do our best to help the people and the settlement there.
This does wonders for your happiness and contentment and truly teaches you to never take what you have for granted – whether its that iPhone 5 or even a heavy meal that you have.
Accessories, pretty dresses and shoes, denim jackets. I mean, what’s not to love? I love looking nice and dressing up. Not to impress people, but I love feeling pretty.
Who doesn’t love dressing up? It makes you look pretty and feel it, too. It changes you mood as well – just the right amount to make a difference.
Family. These are the people who are there by your side, people you can confide in. Yeah, sometimes you think you love your brother because you have to, but then you realise…that you actually truly love him.
They’re always around and they help you and educate you and never, ever take them for granted.
Not the TV show. Well, yeah of course the TV show too.
But your friends are the people you can be yourself around. These are the people who never judge you and never push you away. Of course, with time you do lose some friends, but the ones that stick around become the most important people in your life.
You can be completely crazy around these people – they reciprocate. You can be frustrated – the understand. Everything is okay around these people and they are the ones who make you happy, or even angry. But they’re the ones who matter.
So in my French class, I was asked to make a poster on a city that I wanted to visit, and put it on display. I also decided it was time for another city for my bucket list on the blog, so here goes.
I decided to a translation of it in French (without using google translate), so excuse me if I make too many mistakes!
La fontaine de Trevi: The Trevi Fountain
There are many things to do in Rome. One of these things includes the pristine and elegant: Trevi fountain. The fountain of luck. Throw a coin into the water and expect your wish to come true.

Fall is fast-approaching. And winter, immediately after. Here are some things that are good for both seasons!
Boots. Who doesn’t love a pair of cute boots that you can wear anywhere? They jazz up your outfit and are extremely comfortable.
Nothing can keep your feet warm and comfortable more than a fluffy pair of socks can. Pull some over your feet and sit with your friends by the fire while enjoying this cold season with some movies and s’mores!
Baggy sweaters can keep you warm all over – and they are super chic and stylish in the season!
Beanies make your outfit look just that much better and they add a little something. While still keeping you warm and they definitely make a difference.
Scarves can add that little splash of colour to your outfit, or even help tone it down. Wear something simple, and style it up by wearing a scarf around that neck. Everyone will be staring.
Its a bit unusual, but manicures help make the fall and winter season that much more fashionable. Wear different designs on your nails and it makes the perfect accessory, without being too overpowering and overwhelming.
I decided to make this week’s playlist: all the songs I have been obsessively listening to the past week or so.
I listen to a lot of different music styles, ranging from pop to pop punk to punk rock to rock and I even throw some country in there once in a while. I listen to the punk-rock and rock genres most, but this is a mix of everything!

Desserts. Sweets. Candy. Chocolate. There is nobody in the world who doesn’t have a sweet tooth for anything.
Mouth watering, melts-in-your-mouth, tastes like heaven. What more do you want from a dessert? There can never be a day when I go without chocolate. Definitely my favourite dessert, by far.
These soft, the right amount of sweet, appetizing and delicate make a perfect dessert for any occasion: whether you’re sitting at home watching downloaded TV shows or you’re on a date or even dinner with your best friend.
Everyone loves ice cream. Whether its chocolate, or vanilla or rocky road. This is perfect for a hot summer day – it cools your system down and makes a perfect sweet treat!
A bit unusual and rarer to find than other desserts: macarons. These French miracles are the definition of a perfect dessert.
Even if they are pricey.
This pungent and delectable dish makes a mouth-watering dessert. A slice of apple pie or a piece of cherry pie makes an extremely flavoursome and appetizing après main-course refreshment.
This sweet and light “puff” of candy makes an amazing snack as you walk around town with your friends, enjoying the day.
