Longing for a City gets a makeover?

Hello strangers!

As many of you know, I have been absent from LFAC for quite some time, an entire 7 months in fact! However, you will also have noticed there are  a lot of changes that have taken place here in the last week. Not only creative changes, but subject changes too.

If you haven't seen the new"About Me" page, here is a brief overview of what has been happening.

Starting in mid-December, I began the journey to adopt a Vegan lifestyle. Though I'm still a total beginner, I will be sharing progress and recipes on here as often as I can.

 If you the most recent posts from last year, or follow me on Instagram (@longingforacity) you will know that I spent the past 4 months studying in America. I have written a series of between 4 and 5 posts giving you tips on travelling abroad on this kind of programme, and telling you what I got up to while I was away.

Lastly, I’m now obviously a second year university student. I am now focussing a majority of my content on student related posts. These will cover everything from being a good housemate, to travelling on a budget.

In a nutshell, I have a lot more content that covers topics that are actually important to me and they are going to be more substantial and useful to you.

Tweet me to let me know topics you’re interested in @longingforacity or just comment below.

Talk soon, Lauren

My life || May

Hello strangers!

I haven't been around this way in a while and was missing all you wonderful people, here's what is going on in my life at the moment.


At the beginning of May I turned in my final piece of university work for my first year *insert praise hands emoji* for those of you who don't know, I study Marketing at Winchester university. I am going to make a post for business freshers in the next month so keep an eye out for that one! But I'm just glad that I have finally finished my first year.

How to avoid stress and stay healthy in 4 easy steps!

Recently I have been trying out a different approach to being healthy. Yes I am quite often inspired by movies, this post is no different. But no, it's not Cindy Crawford's buns of steel.  

In this article by Rosalind Davis, she talks about links between social, bodily, mental and environmental influences on an individuals wellbeing. She mostly relates these to stress factors and the influence of stress on your health.

The student guide to luxury lifestyle

    Luxury,    Lux¦ury,    n.
A state of great comfort or elegance, especially when involving great expense.

Being a student is being bound to a life of budgets, rules and guidelines; being in work or everyday life. However, as the imaginative, creative bunch that we are, there are certain things that us students can do to spruce up our lives and make them more bearable.

Favourite online reads.

I don't know about you, but as a cheapskate I love the invention of free internet magazines! In my eyes they can be just as good, if not better, than the real deal. 
Here are some of my favourite sites to check out if I have a little extra time in my day....
