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.
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…
Anyone else think it’s been WAY too long waiting for Game of Thrones? I just can’t contain my excitement. In light of the new series coming out (not soon enough), my head is swarming with Game of Thrones fan theories! Let’s get some buzz going (as if you’re not buzzing already) and recap where we are and figure out where this story will end up in it’s final series! I am going to be SO sad when it’s all over, so I can’t wait to take in every moment.
I wanted to share with you, two amazing books I was gifted. As some of you may know from my previous collaboration infographic, I am a feminist. (Not an activist of any kind, but I do believe in equality between all genders, everywhere. Simple as.) These two books were gifted to me for which I am very thankful. Feminism AND Science? Any books that celebrate the achievements of women are always welcome in my library!
