I don’t always do a spontaneous off-schedule post, but when I do, you know it’s because something is amazing and I just HAVE to share it with you! I have just finished watching the first series of ‘Sex Education’ on Netflix and my gosh, it was super refreshing and definitely worth your time. Here’s why…
One of my new self-imposed goals for 2019 is to write more about the nerdy/geeky stuff that I enjoy! Things like D’n’D (aka Dungeons and Dragons), which I wrote a post about last year. It’s totally changed my life! My new series, Critical Hit! is going to be all about DnD! To kick it all off I thought I’d interview the person who is my DnD Dungeon Master! (He’s the brains of the outfit.)
If Muggle Musings has taught me anything, it’s that you need to know where you stand in the Harry Potter Universe. How would you act in certain situations? What house would you be in? What better way to find out than doing a little Harry Potter Personality Quiz!
I’ve visited the National Space Centre a few times for a Starry Night Ball and general entry so it was amazing to get the chance to see the centre at night! I made sure to do my make-up all space-like and of course, threw on my space jacket for the occasion! I couldn’t wait to explore!
I think we’ve established many times that I am super awkward when it comes to being put in front of a camera. I envy some of my friends to whom it comes naturally – watching them swing around at their professional photoshoot, laughing and posing. They make it look so easy but then suddenly it’s my turn… and I freeze like a rabbit in head-lights.
2019 is set to be a big year for movies! Checking out what’s coming up I thought I’d pick my selection of my most anticipated movies of the year. Some of these I am really worried about! I just don’t see how they can be good, but I hope they are!
People often say “Oh wow, this year has flown. I can’t believe it’s almost over.” But for me, this feels like the longest year in existence. It’s been an absolute roller-coaster of a year, where I’ve gone through minor breakdowns, major breakthroughs, had some self-doubt, learnt self-love, sought out new things and cherished some of the old.
I feel like (partly down to blogging) this has been my richest year yet – one with many happy memories and some not so good, but ultimately I’ve come out of it a different person. So here is my A-Z of 2018. I hope you take the time to read it, because seriously, it’s been a wild ride.
One thing which people might not realise about blogging is the importance of the pictures! I am usually very… scruffy. I rarely dress up for anything unless there’s a photo-shoot involved because I am super lazy, but sometimes even when I am dressed to the nines… I have to battle with my EPIC awkwardness. I feel bad for any person who has ever tried to get a good photo of me. They must have the patience of saints, because for every good picture there about 10 where I am awkward as hell.
It was lovely to finally get to a smaller convention in 2018. I am used to going to the MCM Comic Con in Birmingham or London, and sometimes they can be a little overwhelming. However, at Stratford Comic Con* the room was bustling with the same lovely atmosphere of a larger con, but without the annoying queues! There are always perks to visiting a smaller comic con…
For me, Christmas isn’t about “hauls”… It’s about giving back, and trying to spread a little joy! So for my Christmas countdown I’ve decided to promote some of my favourite Coventry local businesses and beyond in my new Geeky Christmas Countdown!
These are people who I genuinely want to affiliate myself with and endorse fully. They are brands I love, local and distant, that I have worked with before, I know the owners of, or I just feel deserve your time! I decided to write my shortlist of 12 Nerdy Gifts for Geeks on the countdown to Christmas.
