Exploring Oxford For A Few Days

Exploring Oxford

I got to revisit Oxford after over a year and loved it just as much the second time. I was primarily in Oxford because I was attending a Fusion conference called Firebrands from Thursday to Saturday, but since I remembered loving the city last time, I purposefully arrived a day early to walk around a little bit with some friends of mine.

This past week I arrived back in the UK (woot woot!) and got to visit a few places for the first time before I made my way back to Portsmouth including Sheffield and York!

I finally got around to visiting Oxford for the day! This was huge for me because I had heard Oxford is a great city to visit and explore if you are a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien or C.S.

A Saturday On The Beach

A Saturday On The Beach

The three musketeers visited Dorset this past weekend y’all. I feel like it’s been ages since we did a trip like this. The last one was our Brighton Trip before summer! (Crazy.) The timing for this trip was absolutely perfect. I had just submitted a uni deadline (literally three hours beforehand), and I was SO looking forward to a weekend away Continue reading
