I’m currently a medical student studying in London, and although I love medicine and the job it just doesn’t fulfill my creative side.

I am always on the look out for DIY projects and ideas, for my home, garden, pets and loved ones. As a (very) poor student, I also have to complete my projects on a very strict budget, which can be frustrating, but usually adds to the fun!

I love to bake, and as a coeliac my recipes are always gluten free. Although I enjoy baking, I’m pretty lazy, so my recipes tend to be simpler ones, never ones with four different types of flour or any ingredients you can’t get from a local supermarket!

I also recently got engaged, so I am also navigating the unfamiliar waters of wedding planning, which I am finding is as fun as it is stressful! I have always said I want to enjoy the process of planning my wedding, as I am only going to do it once. There is so much to do but I’m loving gathering all the ideas I’m finding online, and all the opportunities to make bits myself and involve the ones I love in mine and my fiances big day (must remember he is involved).

So… I hope this blog will be a place for me to gather all of the random little projects that I enjoy doing, be it for my house, my our wedding, or whatever. I also want it to be a place to share experiences of my time studying medicine, being in a (sometimes) long distance relationship and living on a budget!

    Sounds like we’re in the same boat: I recently graduated from my MSc, I love DIY, live in London and also recently got engaged! I can’t wait to see more posts from you x
