Muggle Musings is coming to an end this weekend and it’s broken my heart a little bit, but I know deep down that it’s for the best. It’s been the most brilliant thing ever, running my own discussion group and getting to know such a wonderful group of people. I feel I’ve learned so much during such a short time so I wanted to share it with you.
Since I posted my first blog post on Nerdy enamel pins and where to find them, lots has changed. Not just generally in my life, but also there’s a heck load of new pins on the market as their popularity has BOOMED. Here are just a few of my favourites and a few on my wishlist!
My first ever character was a Rogue, but that just didn’t suit me. Being the stealthiest and the first to react was fun, but playing a Bard just levelled up D&D for me and turned it from something good to something great.
Here’s how to effectively play a bard in D&D!
I cannot believe that Game of Thrones is coming to an end. I remember when I started watching it almost 8 years ago. The first season had just ended and I was at University looking for something good to watch. So I watched the first episode. And the second…
You know how I’ve got a LITTLE bit of a pin-badge obsession? (Don’t we all nowadays?) Well I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing a maker of pin badges, glitter necklaces and earrings, BekBekMakes. A Coventry local, a mum and a maker – find out how she started off her creative career with a bang!

One of the biggest things that can be daunting when starting up is making your Dungeons and Dragons character. It can seem a little permanent – what if you don’t like the character and you’re a bit stuck with them? What if they aren’t convincing or easy to RP? So I’ve decided to share how I went about creating my characters, to try and help you on your way to playing D&D!
You might get into the feeling that you can’t cosplay a certain thing because you’re plus size, so I wanted to try and find the best plus size cosplay around – not necessarily because they’re plus-size characters (like Ursula or The Queen of Hearts) but showing you can do the characters justice, regardless!
How do you pick your class in D’n’D? When I created my first character, I thought about what he would be like first and then picked the race and class backwards. I think because it was my first time playing, I put lots of my heart into my character and as advised by my more learned friends, I made a character that emphasised some of my own traits… Basically… he was a bit of a bastard. But what do you do if you have a blank canvas?
My 30th birthday has been overshadowed (just a little) this year, with the 30th anniversary of the Game Boy! I can’t believe it’s as old as I am! Yep, this 8-bit baby was released in April of 1989! I just wanted to write a little ode to the Game Boy and all the things we have in common.

Yet again, I have encountered something that I love so much that I just had to write about it there and then! The Dice Box in Leamington was on my list of places to visit and after going there today I was so impressed, that I wanted to write a little review of it! It’s really worth the visit!
