Hayley Wickens's Blog


My name is Hayley (I know, hard to believe when you’re on a blog called hayleywickens.com) and I’m a 21-year-old British student studying in Brighton.

So what’s this blog all about then? Well, my friend, I’m still working that one out. I suppose the three main pillars are Travel, Lifestyle and Food & Drink.


Hayley Wickens's blog

You see this blog saw the light of day during my year abroad in Turin, Italy. During that year I learnt a new language, made friends with people from all over the world and travelled around a country that I had never been to before. Sounds ballsy right? I suppose that’s just how we like to do it in my family. You see when I was 9, with my family we moved to France. I do believe that I’m destined to see the world. This blog is a way to document that crazy ride.

In terms of lifestyle, this equates to all the smaller things in life that I enjoy. So as I’m a student going into my final year, this will involve all things relating to university life and how to survive it. Under the roof of lifestyle features also fashion, so you can watch me try and catch up with trends. It also features my favourites. On my blog, favourites are anything from bloggers to products. And it also includes all the things that I enjoy on a more day to day basis, for example where I like to go shopping for homeware. 

And finally food and drink. Much to my boyfriend’s dismay, I do not consider myself to be a culinary goddess in the slightest. However, even though I don’t myself cook, BOY do I like to eat (and drink). This section runs more along the lines of recommendations. This includes all the places where I like to go out to eat and drink in different countries, cities etc …

This blog is a work in progress and I hope you enjoy it.
