Hi! I’m Lucy Burger. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet, where I blog about my life as a London-based PhD student, having as much fun as possible on my tiny student budget.

I’m a twenty-something Oxford University graduate, who recently moved to East London to study for a PhD in eating disorders at King’s College London. Some of my favourite things include eating brunch, drinking cocktails, and exploring everywhere I can. I love to be outdoors – running, skiing, and playing in the sea – but also adore to curl up with a book under a huge pile of blankets.

In the pages of this blog, I’m going to talk about how I make the best out of my time in this amazing city, and the other incredible places I travel to, while working on my PhD and surviving on a small student budget.

Excited to meet you, and welcome to my life.
