Tumble dried towels. That fluffy, chilled, cosy, relaxed, content feeling of freshly tumble dried towels. That's exactly what this month's work in progress playlist reminds me of. And is exactly the feeling I'm trying to achieve on a regular basis in Canada. I have now been in Toronto for a whole month for study abroad, and I am quite surprised at how much homesickness has hit me.

Hola amigos.

Another Friday, another vlog. Can you believe I've actually managed to stick to this routine for a whole four weeks?? Pretty insane isn't it. Proud of myself.

Hey friends, it's Friday once more. I had so much trouble trying to save this vlog it's been ridiculous - like 2am last night ridiculous. BUT it's now up and I'm actually pretty happy with it. After being unsure how I was going to piece this week's footage into anything, it turned out quite alright. This is my first foray into fitness related video content, showing you my best post-gym leg stretch routine after a short vlog about my 15km hike at Rattlesnake Point Conver- Conservation Trail, just over an hour outside of Toronto.

Hey hey friends, it's that fun time of the week again - vlog Fridays (I've made it two weeks so far this is a very good start). Hoping to share my travels in Toronto with you along the way, I quite enjoy this week's vlog, however in future I would like to make them slightly longer - about 6-8 minutes probably - and with more of me speaking to the camera.

Yes, it has officially been one week since I made the move to Toronto, Canada for four months for study abroad. I have had such a busy week exploring and discovering Toronto, there has never been a dull moment. Even the late night trip to IKEA after our long flight for bedding and towels was fun - it's all part of the experience.

I have decided to create my own '1 second a day' video project while I'm here, but obviously I can't show you that until I have been here for all the 117 days. So until then, I'm going to be uploading vlogs on my YouTube channel (hopefully weekly!), blogging about what I discover in Canada here on and sharing tidbits (or timbits lol) on my Instagram @copperpink as well. So if you would like to keep up with my journey in Toronto these are the places to look!

I have my induction for my course tomorrow morning, and then classes start next Tuesday. But for the past week I've just been living life, making friends and adventuring - so here's one photo a day from my first week in Toronto.

One Week into Toronto

Hi friends. I am so excited to tell you I have finally moved to Toronto, Canada. I feel like I've been waiting for ages just counting down the days and now I am actually here I still can't quite believe it's real. I am living here for four months as part of my university degree with RGU, studying at Humber College. I have about a week to explore and get settled in to Canadian life until classes begin and I cannot wait. Words cannot express how grateful I am feeling right now.

So instead, I made a video.

I shall hopefully be getting better and better at vlogging with each one, which should be with you weekly. If you have any tips or advice for living in Toronto or anywhere I should visit - please let me know!

See u soon friends,

VLOG | Moving to Toronto, Canada

We've been treated to some top notch bangers recently haven't we? I'm a big believer that music is great meditation, as I am always listening to something no matter where I am or what I'm up to. This month a few song lyrics that used to fly straight over my head have hit home as I can now relate. Which is a pretty incredible feeling which has given me a newfound appreciation for said songs. Hence my July 2017 mixtape.

There is probably nothing more I enjoy than swimming in the sea at a secluded sandy beach - I've had my yearly supply of that thanks to Malta. Although the idea of swimming at a Scottish beach is perhaps a little far-fetched (although possible in my experience), Scotland really does have some beautiful beaches with fantastic views and vibes all over the place. Here are three of my favourites.

1. Mellon Udrigle, Wester Ross, The Highlands

Every year during my school years (as far as I can remember), my family and I made a trip to Wester Ross in the Highlands in the October school break. Admittedly when I was very young I believe I used to complain about the long walks, but as I grew older and looking back I can now appreciate how lucky I was to see the beautiful Scottish scenery each year. One of our favourite beaches on these trips was Mellon Udrigle. It has everything you could want: a vast white sandy shore, a horizon made up of mountains, ragged rocks to climb, smooth stones to skim and grassy banks with sheep. If you have never visited the Highlands, you need to go just for Mellon Udrigle.
