Novia Cat Eye Glasses | Review & Voucher Code

* were kind enough to send me glasses for review purposes however, all opinions in this post are my own

I've worn glasses full time for just over 3 years and I've always stuck to the same shape and colour of frames... standard black and slightly curved. When reached out to me, offering eyeglasses in return for a review, I used the opportunity to branch out with my style choice and I'm really impressed with the frames that I received.

A Day In Dean Village: Edinburgh University Buddies

An opportunity received on a year abroad is the option to have a 'buddy' during your stay in a foreign country. A buddy is there for an international student during the initial period of their stay in order to make sure the settling in process is as stress-free as possible and to act as a helping hand along the way. I decided against having a buddy during my Erasmus year in Belgium, but I had a lot of friends there who had buddies and some turned out to be their life-long friends. After missing the international side of my studies returning home, I decided to participate in the Edinburgh University buddies programme, where two 'Edinburgh Buddies' are assigned to a group of 6 'International Buddies'.
