How to make Toaster Strudels!

Sunday, March 29th, 2015


Hi guys, after moving back to the UK one of the things i really miss from the US are toaster strudels!
If you have lived/live in America you will know what they are, basically they are a pastry full of jam with icing sugar on the top, and you typically have them for breakfast.

They don’t sell them in the UK, and i couldn’t even order any online.. so i found a recipe, and they were actually pretty good. Here is the video on how I made them!

The final result….


Trip to the Lake District…

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

Yesterday I went on another trip with the Connect group at Sunderland Uni! We went to the Lake district, it was really beautiful! They do this trip every year I believe so make sure to buy a ticket – only £15! Here are some of the photos from the trip…

On the Windermere Lake cruise….. it was pouring down with rain!




Luckily the weather improved!

Long Distance Relationships at University

Monday, March 9th, 2015

I decided to make a blog on surviving a long distance relationship when moving away from your loved ones to go to University. I know many people who want to go to a University away from home but end up staying at home because they are afraid of leaving.

I believe choosing a University is one of the most important decisions of your life, and you should always make the decision on what YOU believe to be the right choice. It is very possible to survive a long distance relationship whilst going to University, and you will only end up stronger as a couple at the end of it. I hope my video helps!
