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!
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.
At our monthly Harry Potter Discussion Group, we always come up with loads of brilliant theories and discussions centred around a particular theme in Harry Potter. I wanted to start to use some of this for my blog posts, because it’s always super interesting and I rarely share them!
Muggle Musings started in February of this year, and since then there have been so many brilliant insights and anecdotes I never would have thought of myself. I’ve already done a little highlights post about some of our more outrageous claims but I wanted to be more focused and show just how deep we delve into the books themselves!
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!
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!
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…

I’ve always loved Sci-Fi but I never feel like I have seen enough! I wanted to explore as much as possible, from the first Sci-Fi Movie “Le Voyage Dans Le Lune” (1902), right through to the latest releases and sub-genres that have expanded throughout the years. Because, Sci-Fi always makes us question;
Where will science take us? What’s going to happen to us? What’s NEXT?
I’ve already considered what makes a good Sci-Fi story, and so I started doing a little research into the release dates of movies (and some extra reading). I realised that there is a pattern in what’s happening in society and science, and the types of movies that became popular at the time.
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!
Here’s just a little something extra from me following from my last Nerdy Enamel Pins post! I’m always looking to collaborate with local businesses, and when I heard that Coventry had it’s own pin badge club I just had to get one!
