Major Adulting: My Blogging A-Z of 2018 (Wow, what a year!)

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.

Blogging Bloopers: When Photo-Shoots go Wrong!

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.

12 Gifts of Christmas – The Best Nerdy Gifts from Coventry Local Businesses and Beyond*

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.

* 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…
