Ready Player One Film Review

Just a VR girl living in a Dystopian World: Ready Player One Film Review

If you could live in any imaginary world, which would you choose? The land of Ooo? Middle-earth? Discworld?
Narnia? Equestria? Westeros? But what if you could pick all of them?

Ready Player One is based in a dystopian future, and yes of course that means the world itself is chaotic and terrible BUT it also means you can live in a VR space called the Oasis.
The Oasis allows you to explore all the sensations of any of these worlds combined. I was so hyped for the film this year that I got advanced screening tickets to go and see it.

And here are my thoughts… my Ready Player One Film Review.


Valentines Day: I have to admit I’m enjoying your company, are we falling in love?

This weekend has been so sunny, it’s definitely starting to become spring! Thought I’d continue with this mid-week posting thing as it’s Valentines Day!  Also, I don’t know if I will post this coming Saturday because I am going to be super busy.

So here’s a little Valentines Day post

Me and my fiance recently started to plan our wedding: the date is set, the wheels are in motion and things are very far from settling into place. I suppose we have a fairly long way to go (about 18 months) – which should be enough time for me to get my life straight and to be able to balance my social, family, blogging, work and wedding planner life! Right?

Ultraviolet Vibes: Why I love the Ultra-vibrant Purple Pantone of the Year

I know that I am super ahead of the trend ‘n’ all that, but when I found out that the Pantone of the Year was Ultraviolet, I just jumped for joy. Last year’s Pantone, Luminous Green just wasn’t my thing, (but anyway that’s so 2017.)

After having an Ultraviolet blog theme and tons of galaxy-laden clothes for my whole life, the trend setters have finally caught up with me… and designers are going mad for the colour and it’s space-like associations!

So here are just a few reasons why I love this Ultraviolet Pantone of the Year!

A Geek’s Guide: My Top 10 Books to Read in 2018

Anyone else buy heck-loads of books just for them to collect dust on a shelf? Only every book-lover I know, and I am no exception to this. There are just so many books I like the look of that I don’t get time to read them all.

I always have a book in hand but it means the ones that I buy in between fall through the cracks in my attention span. So this year, I have decided to give myself the goal of reading at least 10 books that are not (yet) part of my book club schedule.

Here is my definitive guide of books to read in 2018 and hopefully with any luck I will finish them and do mini-reviews on them later in the year! At least, that’s the plan…

That’s a Wrap, Folks! My 2017 Blogging Highlights

2017 in general has been one of the best years ever, fuelled in part to my blog. Not including all the life events I’ve been through this year, my blog has allowed me to set myself goals, think about my photography and find new places to explore! So let’s take a look back on my year’s blogging highlights!

I will be next writing to you in February!

I am on hiatus for January; a chance to get creative, do some prep to get ahead and get some goals completed! This year has been non-stop and I feel like a break to recuperate is in order… (Unless I get bored and want to post, which is just as likely!)

So without further ado, here are just a few of the blogging highlights of my year…

Major Adulting: Experiencing some technical difficulties…Please stand by.

Okay firstly, I’m coming up to a year of blogging and I can’t believe it. It’s been such a brilliant year for me and I have done more awesome things as a result. That kinda changed recently when I hit some kind of mental wall. Since that week, I’ve struggled to think. I’ve also cut myself off from the interesting things I do.

I am usually so driven. Anyone who knows me can tell I’m never happy unless I am productive and busy. So when I hit a bump in the road like this, it really knocks me about. So this week I’ll just be a little more honest; with myself, and with you…

Last Week Princess Bubblegum met TomSka

So last weekend, I dressed as Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time for MCM Comic Con. This day was pretty significant to me in lots of ways. First, I wore a costume to a convention for the first time. Second, I met one of the YouTubers I admire. And third, I had some kinda weird exhaustion breakdown. All fun!

Being Princess Bubblegum

Onto the good stuff! Being Princess Bubblegum was exciting and a bit of a rush. I have dressed up for so many parties with friends in the past, but never played a character at a place like MCM Comic Con. I felt like I wanted to impress people and that also added some pressure!

Halloween Special: October’s Spooky Themed Japan Crate

I don’t tend to have a favourite time of year but as it starts to get colder and the jumpers come on, it’s time for Halloween! I absolutely love the Halloween aesthetic and I tend to wear a lot of black all year round… Part of me wishes I was more stylish and can rock a dedicated Halloween outfit (that isn’t a pumpkin) but until then I’ll just review these Japan Crate Halloween goodies!

I don’t tend to do the same type of thing twice on my blog (at least so far) and I’ve reviewed a Japan Crate before. But I just HAD to share how frigging cool this latest Japan Crate was. This month is was the Halloween special and all the items in the box were themed to suit- every single one.

MDWAP Live SouthBank Centre

Going Solo to MDWAP Live: The Podcast Everyone loves but No-one talks about.

“My Dad Wrote a Porno” was my gateway into podcasts. It’s a podcast that no-one has spoken to me about, other than the person who shared it with me or the people I shared it with, and I didn’t realise it was so worldly renowned. However, when I mentioned the other night on Facebook that I went to see My Dad Wrote a Porno Live (MDWAP Live), so many fans came out of the woodwork!

For those who aren’t familiar with this podcast – it’s the best! 3 friends getting together to discuss one of their dad’s (lovingly rubbish) smutty self-published novels, “Belinda Blinked.”
