One of the Best Mornings
Updated: Jan 18, 2019
School has officially started!! But for this week its lectures only and most of the classes I had were introductory lectures - boring. Tutorials here occur once in 2 weeks which I find really slack! I wish we had more so I feel like I'm actually studying? But I guess I'll just do my own readings.
I had such an amazing morning today! I didn't have any classes for the day and that also adds to why I had such a great morning hahah :)
I headed down to Princes Street this morning to get a couple of things - A world map and a small succulent for my room! But of course I had to go check out Top Shop and H&M cos they were RIGHT THERE. I ended up buying a really nice cardigan from H&M which only cost £11! Then I headed to John Lewis to try my luck in finding a succulent, and I passed a small farmers market on my way there
The fruits and vegetables looked so fresh and I wish I had my own kitchen so I could buy all of em and cook up a real healthy meal!
Turns out - John Lewis only sells artificial plants :( But I asked the sales lady and she recommended a florist - Narcissus just 5 minutes away. On my way down Broughton Street, where the shop was located, I passed by a sign that read " Vegan Chocolates " and without giving it a second thought, I headed straight into the shop! I was so excited by the variety of vegan chocolate bars they had and bought 2 for £7.75 which was quite dear, but it's quite hard to find vegan chocolates in the local supermarkets so I just got them!
Look how pretty their packaging is!
I then headed down the street to the florist. It was hard to miss as the exterior of the shop was so beautiful and colourful!
I managed to find a small succulent for £3.50:)
On my way back up the street, I passed by this food store called Real Foods and just by the name alone, I suspected it was a cafe ( like the one in Singapore with the same name ) but turns out it was a health food store! and I almost died in there because I literally wanted to buy everything off the shelves!
Just a small list of the amazing items that they sold
1. All sorts of nut butter you could imagine - almond, cashew, hazelnut, peanut
2. Superfoods - Chia seeds, Maca powder, Acai powder, Hemp Seeds, Goji Berries
(you name it, they have it!)
3. A huge variety of Nakd bars!
4. Dairy free yoghurt!!
(Which I missed so much after turning vegan)
5. Different flavours of Rye bread!
6. Vegan chocolate milk - TO DIE FOR
And all of these were sold at affordable prices! I can already envision myself doing my weekly grocery shopping trips here when I get a flat next year :)
So after gasping with delight at every shelf that I critically examined, I ended up purchasing 3 packets of Chocolate Oat Milk (for £0.46 each) and Coconut & Cranberry Rye Bread (£2.19). I decided to save the dairy-free yoghurt for my next trip here!
I then headed back to Pollock halls for lunch and to Skype with daddy!
Junction at Princes Street
Happiest meal I've had in my room !
I've left this post hanging for 2 hours as I just Skyped Dad, Mum and Justina!! <3 <3 <3 Had so much to share and it was so nice to see their faces and to hear their voices :)
I'm going to go for dinner soon and then for Muay Thai tonight, so pumped for that wooh!
Bye xxxxx ( Hope everyone has a great day!!)
