Sunrise on the canal😍🌥 How’s everyone finding their runs this week? Don’t forget to check in with yourself and listen to your body!

I had to stop on the way home this morning to take a snap of the sunshine peeking through the clouds. . It was beautiful, although the picture doesn't do it justice - it was much prettier in person. . I've been literally fumbling through the last few months. I have hit some of my lowest lows and felt like I'm going nowhere fast. . It was nice to take 5 minutes and enjoy the moment. Something I really should do more often. Something we should all do more often. . . #unlawyerly_lawyer #aspiringsolicitor #aspiringlawyer #trainingcontract #law #lpc #ulaw #u_law #universityofsussex

One of the best ways of standing against this virus is making sure we are fighting fit. We must find time to invest in our health and wellbeing. Physical, mental and spiritual well-being. February is also health and wellbeing month. Let's spread love, compassion and kindness. Join me tomorrow morning at 0900hrs UK time for 30 minutes home workout on insta live. No equipment required. 'It's going down for real' 👊🏾 Your health is your wealth.

I just saw a quote that said "rejection is redirection." . I received a rejection from my dream firm today. I had a little sulk. Then got up and made some choccie milkshakes for me and the boys. . I can't change the decision, but I can apply what I learn next time. I'm sending my video interview to my mentor and university career advisors for feedback. Mega cringe I know, but needs must. . I haven't lost out on anything. I'm in the same position I was yesterday. I'm going to take this opportunity to learn, adapt and overcome. . When I do finally get a TC, I'm going to lovingly stare at it, just like Jax and his babyccino 😂 . #unlawyerly_lawyer #aspiringsolicitor #aspiringlawyer #law #ulaw #u_law #babyccino

🍳 Starting the day right 🍳 A bad start to the day translates into a bad rest of the day. Even if you do sit down and work, the work you do probably won’t be your best. Starting the day comes before breakfast. When you wake up, make sure to drink water. Your brain is dehydrated after sleep and a hydrated brain is a brain that’s active and awake. Then breakfast. Carbs from cereal or bread-based products (like toast or bagel) for example are best I find as carbohydrates burn slowly throughout the morning and keep you going. High sugar foods will just lead to lows as the sugar is burned off quicker. If your 30g bowl of cereal has more than 10g sugar, it probs isn’t best for your studies. I prefer tea to coffee anyway but whatever you choose, watch your caffeine. You don’t wanna end up on a caffeine low because you had coffee before water. Making a brew every 5 minutes isn’t productive either! I’d recommend herbal teas, Pukka herbs specifically. There’s loads of great flavours (Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honey is the BOMB) and most (I definitely know Pukka are) are naturally caffeine free. Herbal teas can also carry health benefits, especially ones that are turmeric based or contain it as a main ingredient. I’m not a fitness or nutrition expert so please correct me if I’m wrong on any of those parts if you know about these things. How do you start the day for a productive day of studying? 🍳📚✨ #llb #law #lawstudent #ulaw #liveprospectus #stopfordianlaw #solicitor #coursework #studyingathome #exams #criminallaw #landlaw #lawoforganisations #businesslaw #businesslaw1 #bagel #yorkshiretea #yorkshiregold

I’ve been wanting to start a little page to help me reflect on my legal studies and journey for some time now; especially after being inspired by so many accounts. With the new year, and today marking my first ‘proctored’ exam, I felt confident enough to make one! I hope to share both the ups and downs of my studies, and some tips for any exams, both LLB and the LPC! ✨ This post is of the beautiful manor on my University campus! #llb#lpc#proctoru#unioflaw#universityoflaw#lpcstudent#studies#law#studentlife#happiness#reality#architecture#manor

Good morning/afternoon 👩🏼 ⚖️✨ . Had a few days off here! I submitted my skeleton argument for interim payment on Friday and have been letting myself have some time off now that most of my assessments are completed. I’m getting into pupillage applications later today and will be uploading a bit more on here this week! Today I’ll also been going over my speech for my oral advocacy assessment on Thursday. . Hope you all had a productive Monday and enjoy the rest of today ☺️💖 . . . . . #bpp #btc #bar #bptc #london #lawschool #law #lawyer #womeninlaw #feminism #feminist #barrister #solicitor #citylaw #biglaw #legal #paralegal #trainee #ulaw #university #student #study #lpc #lawstudentblog #royalcourts #rcj #court #pink #legallyblonde #f4f

🤍// Bit of a late one from me! Today was my boyfriend’s birthday and we drove up to a beautiful peaceful place. I’ve found that walks and exploring new places have been a positive about all of these lockdowns and restrictions! It was nice to not be working and not being in front of a screen for half the day! Tomorrow I’m going to be finishing off some training contract applications - I’d love to be accepted for one that starts in 2022, but don’t think I’d actually mind one in 2023 to have a year break and perhaps paralegalling for a bit! How are you doing on training contracts for those that are studying the LPC, or for those who still need one?💡 I’m also helping out in a virtual talk tomorrow to 3rd LLBb students at ULaw to talk to them about the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate. So hoping I’ll be able to post that (including what I said and tips for those who are thinking of doing the LPC!) Definitely will warn them that it is quite a bit of a leap! I’ll be posting tomorrow at some point in the late afternoon! Watch the space, but for now... Enjoy the nature pictures from hike! Have a good night bees! 🌿🐝 . . . . . #nature #instanature #law #trainingcontract #forest #hike #relax #destress #tuesday #reservoir #pretty #lawstudent #studyblog #studygram #university #ulaw #talk #trees #lawstudygram #study #landscape

My current read 📖 As I said in yesterday’s post I love reading, especially non-fiction, and I get through books at a crazy rate. Today was my first day back at work following some annual leave and as I expected it was a very busy and intense day so I’m taking some time out tonight to dive back into my current book. I’m only 150 pages into ‘Court No.1: The Old Bailey’ but I’m loving it already and I can tell it won’t be long until I’ve finished it. In this book Thomas Grant takes you through some of the most significant cases to be heard in the famous court room over the last century (and a bit) starting all the way back in 1907 with R v Wood. The thing that really appeals to me about this book is how Grant manages to combine the legal narratives of each case with the wider social attitudes that surround each crime. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves true crime or even modern British history. If you have any other books you would recommend I read please let me know on the comments as I’m always keen to find a new book! 📚 #law #lawstudent #lpc #lpcstudent #ulaw #lawgraduate #parttimesrudent #postgraduate #postgrad #postgradlife #masters #mastersdegree #onlinelearning #distancelearning #studygram #student #studying #bookstagram #books #truecrime #court #nonfiction #nonfictionbooks #history #britishhistory #london #readingtime #readingisfun

Work in progress Wednesday. One of my saving graces to keeping sane(-ish) during this year and my studies has been taking up cross stitch. I’m currently working on a few Christmas designs, and so what if I have more design ideas than materials? That’s half the fun of cross stitch! Crazy to think that in less than 7 weeks this will all be over... (besides ofc the cruel wait for results!) Time to crack on! . 🎅 . #crossstitch #coffeelover #coffeeaddict #lawstudent #ulaw #lawdegree #futurelawyer #lawstudies #crossstitching #crossstitchersofinstagram

Missing the summer vibe. Afternoons spent de-stressing after sitting a marathon of LPC exams. Tips for that post-exam chill: 🍉 Fruits 🍉 Sun 🍉 Hammock

It’s DAY 8 of my #legallockdownchallenge and today is all about sharing an achievement you’re proud of. 🍾⁣ ⁣ I couldn’t choose one so here is a selection of photos - from graduating with a first class law degree, winning awards through my efforts during my degree, a distinction in my LPC, undertaking my training contract, qualifying as a solicitor!
