Let my creative-ness shine...

Today I had a real student challenge, my good friend and house-mate Kimberley originates from a farm in Wiltshire, and the last time she visited home she brought us back lots of tasty home grown vegetables!! They have, however, been sat in our fridge festering so today i decided enough is enough! I used my initiative and made a Gorgeous celery and carrot soup!

It was so easy... first I (as my mother taught me) 'sweated' the chopped onions, the celery, and the (very tiny with very long roots) carrot. Then i added stupendous amounts of vegetable stock and some potatoes... popped on the lid and Wallaaah, Bobs your uncle! It did however take around 3 hours to cook, but it was definitely worth it and think of all those vitamins! Students have never ate so good!

Then again i am known for being hungry!

Much love T.H.G x.x

The history of T.H.G...

When i was little i used to love reading and being read to. My favourite book EVER was Eric Carles' "The Hungry Caterpillar". It's an iconic children's book, and it recently celebrated its 40th year anniversary after being published in 1969!! A very long time ago!! If you've never read the book a.) i'm very disappointed and b.) invest in a copy and you'll see why it still remains in my top 5!

This is where my inspiration flourishes from... We are currently doing a module on 'Self Branding' and i thought it would be very fitting to incorporate one of my all time favourite novels into something that reflected me and the stage at which I am in my life. The concept of 'The Hungry Graduate' perfectly describes the hunger I have and the passion to succeed in the big wide world of branding and advertising!

Tatar for now

Hello everyone, I am new to blogging, so bear with me whilst I munch my way through all the 'nitty gritty where's what' and get to grips with it!

Let me introduce myself, I am Lauren Awcock, aka a very 'Hungry Graduate' currently in my 3rd year of studying Advertising and Brand Management at Staffordshire University, United Kingdom. I have relished my last 2 years of being cocoon-ed within a creative and fast paced environment, learning the world of advertising and absorbing all I can within it. I am now however, growing very hungry for a career and life within advertising and branding, feeling ready to leave my safe cocoon and flutter into a new chapter in my life.

Within this blog i will seek advice, share my views and ultimately nibble at anything that will help me grow.
