The story behind 'naturalhazardsandmore':

Believe it or not I've had 2 blogs before! I knew I had one in 2015 that I wrote like 2 posts on and this is where my current blog comes from but whilst looking into changing from blogger to WordPress, I found it I actually have a WordPress blog! From reading it, I think it must of been an assignment in my first year of uni but I'm actually quite proud of what I w…

Major Tectonic Event: Kos Earthquake

Image
Hey everyone!
Welcome to a new series that going to be featured on my blog that I can finally start! I've wanted to do this for agessss but I had to wait until there was a major tectonic event to happen. The series is going to be mini case studies on every major event that occurs worldwide with important facts, information about the event and links to relevant websites. Without further ado, let’s get into the first case study.


Nearly two weeks ago, we awoke to the news of a strong earthquake hitting the popular tourist resorts of Kos and Bodrum, Turkey. Many people were shocked and worried for holidaymakers that were out there at the time but luckily it wasn't as bad as first thought. For seismologists, an earthquake here is not out of the ordinary because of the locations and history of earthquakes here but for everyone else, a strong earthquake in Europe is relatively unknown.
Key Facts about the Earthquake:
Magnitude: 6.6 Depth: 7.0km Date & Time: 21/07/2017 at 1.31am local…

3 cities, 4 days - our trip to Poland

Image
In June last year, my best friend and I embarked on a quick trip to Poland to celebrate the end of 3 years at university! Whilst Poland was not at the top our original places we wanted to visit, it turned out to be the cheapest (student probs) and actually, a place we wanted to visit after some research. So I bet you’re all asking how did we do 3 cities in 4 days?! Well the simple answer is early morning trains. We woke up at around 4am every day to get a 3/4 hour commuter train to the next city and surprisingly, the journeys were more comfortable than if you did the same in the UK. As my previous travel posts have been sort of a ‘travel diary’ I thought I would make this one more photo based with a quick overview - spoiler alert there were A LOT of trips to Sephora! I hope you enjoy the photos of our trip to Poland!
Day 1: London - Krakow After landing in Krakow around lunchtime, we headed straight to our hotel, freshened up and walked to Krakow main square. After a very expensive raid…

Blogger Pack Review

Image
Now I am a sucker for lists and organisational items. Whether its a to-do list, a shopping list, a sheet of paper with notes scribbled all over it I just love them and when I saw that The Blogger Crowd were offering out their packs to review, I emailed straight away. After a few emails the blogger pack was sent over and I immediately fell in love with what was included. The colour scheme and layout of all the pages are so aesthetically pleasing I was immediately attracted. The pack features 2 prints that are an essential for every blogger's desk, a day planner page, a blog post planner and a monthly overview.



Prints.

These are amazing! I've been a blogger for just over a month now and as I'm sure you are all aware it's hard work so the superpower quote speaks to me on so many volumes! If anyone has any tips on how to work full time, keep a house clean and tidy, blog regularly and have a social life hit me up as your gal here is struggling! I can't wait to get a frame…

Life Update- I got into uni!

Image
If you don’t follow my social media (Twitter and Instagram) you may not be aware that my life is changing quite drastically come September.. I am heading back to university after a year out after being offered a place at University College London. It’s been about a week since I accepted my offer and it still hasn’t sunk in that I will be a student at the best university in the UK for my specialised subject. I thought I would do this post to explain why I decided to go to uni and what my next steps are. So here goes..
In my third year of undergrad, I did not know what I wanted to do but all I knew is that I wanted to work with natural hazards so I spent a lot (probably more than I should’ve) of time looking into internships/jobs/degrees and just generally what to do next. I then stumbled upon a ‘Geophysical Hazards’ MSc degree at University College London and next thing I knew I was booking place on the next open day. I went there with my mum and ever since then, it has been my dream to…

Leibster Award

Image
So I've been nominated twice to do the Leibster Award so I thought I'd best get on it! I was nominated first of all by the lovely Josie from daughterofanairhostess and then again by Victoria from ItsVictoriaAnne to answer the 11 questions they have asked. The Liebster Award is a bit of a 'get to know me' with 11 questions asked by the nominator and then the nominees answer, ask 11 new questions to 11 new nominees of their choice! So here it goes...


Josie’s questions: What is your favourite thing to do? Either snuggling up on the sofa with a cup of tea catching up on my favourite tv programmes or taking the dog on a walk. 9 times out of 10 I’m snuggled up on the sofa so probably that.

What advice would you give your best friend? Don’t give up on your dreams. One of my best friends is just about to finish her master's degree and my other best friend has just got a promotion at work so it fits well.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? America. 10…
