Stateside Bucket List

stateside bucket list vw

So as you might of heard from my 'Life's a Beach' blog post I'm off to America for ten and half weeks this summer and to get the most of my visit I've come up with a stateside bucket list of some of the top things I'd like to do while I'm there. For the first eight weeks I'm going to be carrying out an internship programme through The Saltire Foundation with three other Scottish interns (who I've yet to meet but have been in very excited Facebook talks with!) Our internship itself is in San Diego then after the eight weeks we're going on to do a bit of our own travelling including San Francisco, LA and finishing in New York for our last few days. It's been a life long ambition of mine to go to America (who wouldn't want to go?!), but you know being a student and all money is kinda an issue. The great thing about the internship programme through The Saltire Foundation is they cover all the costs of the flights, accommodation and living for the duration of your internship so it's just the extra two and a half weeks travelling and the costs associated with that that I have to worry about and i's an opportunity I just could not let pass me by, no matter how broke I'm gonna be.

 It's pretty unlikely I'll manage to do everything on my stateside bucket list, especially as plans always tend to change, but I thought it would be fun to share it with you guys anyway and I'd love to hear your suggestions too!

Thinking About Setting up a Custom Domain?

setting up a custom domain Go Daddy

So yesterday I took some big girl steps in the blogging world and set up a custom domain (previously now  It's something I've always thought about doing, but just been way too lazy to put into practice and all I can say is if you've been thinking about it - stop thinking and just commit! This is the first of a series of many changes I'm making to my blog in the coming months and thought I'd shed some light on it for those of you considering setting up your own custom domain.

3 Reasons to Love Student Life

3 reasons to love student life

I've recently picked my modules for my last year at uni and it has suddenly hit me that I'm head over heels, heart skipping a beat, weak at the knees in love with student life and am nowhere near ready to give that up. Of course there are downsides to being a student - my flatmate is a classic example of this with her steady diet of pasta for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert - but that's something we're (read I'm) working on changing.

So you ask, why DO you love student life so much?

A Student's Guide to LinkedIn

a students guide to LinkedIn
LinkedIn is described as a social network for professionals and put simply it is the future of job hunting, which is why it deeply surprises me how many students haven't ventured over to see what all the fuss is about. When I ask my student friends why they don't have LinkedIn the most popular responses I get are 'Oh well I don't really understand it', 'I don't have enough experience' and 'What's the point?'. In this post I aim to address all of these issues, and hopefully  encourage you to start a profile or improve the one you already have!
