Easy vegan chia seed pancakes
Recently Joe has been making me these delicious vegan chia seed pancakes for breakfast (I'm a lucky gal) and so I thought I'd share the recipe with you, just in time for Pancake Day! I've tried some terrible vegan pancakes in the past, but this recipe has 100% restored my love for pancakes. They're delicious and super easy to make!

2016 Review // 2017 Perspective

2016 New Year's Resolution Review and 2017 New Pespective With my dissertation deadline looming in early January, I didn't really allow myself much of a break over the festive period and I missed seeing in the new year because I was in bed with a bottle of wine writing my dissertation. The early days of January are nothing but a caffeine fuelled blur in my mind as I raced to meet my deadline and the days that followed were filled with lots of naps, snacks and recovery time. In short, I did not have a fantastic end to 2016 nor a particularly exciting start to 2017. However, now that my dissertation is 100% done and handed in (yay!!) I thought I'd do a bit of belated reflection... Last year I made a post summing up My Top 15 Moments of 2015 but trying to pinpoint my top moments of 2016 proved to be difficult. I know it's become a bit of a cliché to slate the past year but I think we can all agree that 2016 was a bit of a global shit show. However, I'm very aware of my privilege to be safe and happy so I've decided to leave the temptation to moan in 2016. I saw my friend Lisa tweet this week that the year never properly starts until February so I thought 'it's not too late to review my New Year's Resolutions For 2016 and set some goals for 2017!' instead...

Personality Within Professionalism


I'm currently in my final year (*sob*) of my undergraduate degree in Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design and I feel a bit lost. Everyone around me seems to be crafting some kind of "professional identity" ready for graduate job seeking - creating websites, branding themselves, switching their instagram profiles to business accounts and shrugging off the informal identities they've had online for years. It seems trivial to even be writing a post about this, but I guess I'm looking for some kind of reassurance in a sea of uncertainty. Can I maintain the open and honest reputation I've built for myself online whilst still being attractive to potential employers?
