S***faced Shakespeare at the Fringe

As soon as I arrived in Edinburgh I was whisked from beneath the low grey clouds into a cosy and softly lit pub. This wasn’t your standard smelly local, however (I’m looking at you, Wetherspoons). The Brass Monkey had raspberry gin and tonics on offer, rather than 3 VKs for five pound. There was a special ‘cinema room’ at the back of the traditional pub, filled with monkey-themed movie memorabilia, mattresses and pillows to sprawl … Continue reading S***faced Shakespeare at the Fringe

LFW? Why not Delhi Couture Week?

It’s Fresher’s Week and, in case you don’t know, it’s also currently London Fashion Week. But here at Razz, as always, we thought we’d bring you something a little different. After seeing the collections from New York Fashion Week (which was last week), I was reminded of something… Last month was PCJ Delhi Couture Week, and you can’t help but think that the fashion from Indian … Continue reading LFW? Why not Delhi Couture Week?

Relive the Summer with Razz’s Ibiza Inspired Playlist

Secrets of a Briton in New York

Before my departure, the University of Exeter’s Study Abroad department held various meetings about what to expect when you… well, study abroad. They went into minute detail about the culture shock that we would face, and reiterated that there was a trained team in our chosen country to help us if things got a bit too overwhelming. I have to say that when I arrived, … Continue reading Secrets of a Briton in New York
