King Julien is an awesome animation which both the kids and adults will love.Discover the wild world of Madagascar as the king takes on the jungle’s craziest adventures in this comedy series. With his loyal sidekicks Maurice and Mort, join the crew as they meet a whole new cast of colourful animals, including ambitious head of security Clover and the villainous Foosa.

After all of the fun food and dancing with the King himself, we were super excited to settle down and watch the All Hail King Julien episode, it was awesome and funny and we loved it, We had a great time watching our favourite Madagascar character in action again, we are really excited and cant wait to watch it at home on Netflix this December.


Thank you Netflix for the awesome party.

Stuck in London Student Halls Over Festive Period? Here’s What To Do


Not everyone will go home to their families this Christmas. If you are staying put over the Christmas period you may feel at a loose end as your course mates go home to their families and leave you in your student accommodation in London. Urbanest student accommodation in Hoxton, Tower Bridge, St Pancras and King’s Cross are ideally located to explore the city now you have some ‘down’ time from your studies. However, no matter where you are in the capital, here are some ideas of what to in the fortnight or so you have out of lectures.

Find People in the Same Situation
Chances are there will be a few people around your uni or halls who are in the same boat as you. Lots of students from all over the world will not be going home over the Christmas break. Put a call out over social media or ask around in your remaining lectures and you will easily form a group who can explore London in December together.


Check Out What’s Happening Around London for Christmas
London comes alive with Christmas fun over the month of December. Even, if you are not at all bothered about the festivities, it is worth going along to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park or the Ice Rink at Hampton Court Palace. As well as these Christmas events, there may be a whole host of tourist attractions you haven’t had chance to have a look at until now. Make the most of your spare time to see all this great city has to offer.

Write Some Post Cards
Try catching up with some correspondence while you have the time on your hands. Even if you have kept in touch via Skype and social media, why not send your friends and loved ones something tangible. Get them a post card from a local art gallery or even a Christmas card and write a special message.

Tidy Your Flat
This is perhaps another job which you may have been meaning to do but have been too busy studying and socialising to get around to. Start off the New Year with a fresh and tidy living space so you can take your exams by storm. A clean bedroom will be good for your mind.

Go Out For Christmas Dinner
There are several places in London you can go for Christmas dinner. There’s a great guide here. Why not invite your London-based friends along for the meal?

Make Some New Year’s Resolutions
Spend this quiet time contemplating what you want out of the next year. What promises can you make to yourself which will improve your social and study life?

Check in with the Family
Don’t forget your family at this time. You can get in touch by skype or send an extra-long email just make sure you drop them a line.

John Torode's Chocolate Brownies #TassimoPefectHost


We were delighted to attend the Tassimo Christmas event in London, Where we we treated to some tasty treats and some delicious coffee as well as some amazing tips from the Tassmio Perfect Host Team.


With most families choosing to host their own dinner parties at home Tassimo have teamed up with Chef John Torode, Fashion designer and actress Millie Mackintosh and Coffee expert Hazel Middleton who are all Tassimo perfect Host panel who have some amazing tips and recipe ideas to make this festive season.

John's top kitchen must haves
My go to food when hosting for friends and family is anything pastry, simple and easy and always satisfies everyone, Little pies,tarts and puffs aways work well as both kids and adults.

Millie's Top Tips
The smell of food is always very inviting along with candles and lamps these can be used to soften a room along with mellow ambient music during dinner.

Hazel's Coffee Tips
There is nothing better then a coffee or a cappuccino in the morning, and nothing compliments coffee more then a slice of cake or a biscuit.

  

Not only did we get to sample some amazing Tassimo Coffee but we also got the opportunity to make some Chocolate Brownies with chef John Torode.
