* Winter Waffles! Getting into the Christmas Spirit with Bubble Boba UK *

Bubble Boba UK invited me to sample from ANY of their array of warm winter drinks. How could I possibly say no? I tried their Halloween drink a few weeks ago and it’s not often I do collaborations with a brand so quickly in succession but for this, I made an exception!

Bubble Boba UK* also gave me an exclusive off-menu trial drink just to tell all of you PLUS they have a new Christmas Winter Waffle which is the cutest! Just take a look at this…

The Art of Being Alone: Mindfulness and Why I Can’t Seem to Grasp it

As part of my 30 goals before I am 30, I made a pact to try out some mindfulness techniques. It only took 1 and a half years, a minor breakdown and lots of self-intervention to make a start! Hooray! So, obviously I am not the authority on mindfulness, but this is more of a… beginner’s experience.

I have had little to no luck when it comes to mindfulness and I’ve heard that it can be a struggle. For me it’s nearly impossible – I actually took a day to myself where I could do nothing, alone, and lasted well… you can see for yourself.

The Perfect Witches Brew: Apple Pie Bubble Tea with Bubble Boba UK*

It’s no easy feat to cook up the perfect Witches Brew. Many of you will never master the exact art of creating the delicate concoction of flavours. It takes skill, finesse and just a dash of magic to create. That is why this witch took a trip to Bubble Boba Coventry, to get some tips from the master creators this Halloween! Get your grimoires at the ready and start taking notes, witches and warlocks!

A Geek’s Guide: Have Yourself a Very Homely Halloween

If you hadn’t guessed from my previous posts, I absolutely love Halloween, and try to theme my whole October around it! Me and my friend Lizzie always have blogging days – just one super productive day per month where we can focus and bounce ideas off one another. However this time, we decided to extend it into a Halloween sleepover! We stayed up late, watching Halloween themed movies and enjoyed loads of Halloween snacks!

Blogging Horror Stories: Are you a Zombie Blogger?

I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now… but something has been niggling at me for a while. I often get approached by random companies who would like me to copy and paste content into my blog. Let it be on record that I would rather not write anything at all, than fill my blog with vapid nonsense.

Sometimes, yes, that means I’ve skipped posting on schedule, and sometimes I could have taken the easy way out! But I like to think I’ve got a modicum of integrity. I’ve noticed and discussed with friends recently that there is an ever growing amount of Zombie Bloggers. We just keep wondering, why do people have such a bad attitude towards bloggers and influencers? Well, this could be part of the problem…

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Halloween Season Is Here!

I know I am not the only one who starts celebrating Halloween by the start of October, and is just dying to start prepping Halloween blog posts! The aesthetic is one I dabble in all year round, and I really love to go all out for Autumn. It’s my favourite time of the year and I am lucky enough to have a beautiful place to write (above) where I can enjoy the last of the warm days of the year.

Here are just a few things I have planned for October that you can expect from me. Eek, I am so excited I could scream!

Butterfly Effect: Those Beautiful Chaotic Life Changes

I find it difficult, to believe in fate amongst the chaos but sometimes things fall so well into place that you it makes you wonder… What’s the cause? What if something along this path had changed and it sent me another way? It’s so strange to think of this butterfly effect – that there were a series of small seemingly unimportant events that changed my world, piece by piece.

Major Adulting: Pep Talks for Poor Time Management

I am absolutely terrible at sticking to deadlines. I cannot believe that I produced a 2 year bucket list, “30 Before 30” and I’m not even half done with less than a year left! I feel like things got on top of me over the summer and my time management has just gone.

I like to fill my time as much as possible, and when I am finally alone, I feel so exhausted I’m not productive. When I manage to produce a blog post it’s usually last minute or overdue, and I never meet my self-imposed deadlines. But… maybe that’s okay.
