Heyyyy! It’s ya girl, Amy, back at it again with some awesome new conte… no, I can’t keep this up. Yeah, hi – I was gone, and now I’m back. Over the course of the year I’ve not really felt like blogging. I mean, who could blame me for not exactly feeling motivated enough to do anything but dip my toe occasionally. But I thought, seeing as it’s Halloween season (aka… September right up to October 31st) I’d start producing some more posts for my favourite time of the year.
I wanted to get this post out at a time where more people, like me, will have seen Series 2 of Umbrella Academy and will already dying be for more! Safe to say that the members of the Umbrella Academy have all developed very drastically as characters over this second series, so I wanted to provide my new definitive ranking of the members. Here are the worst to best Umbrella Academy members according to, well, me.

I’m not one for food reviews, despite being a frequenter of many a fine dining establishment (Read: I like Nandos a lot). However, after spending our first dinner date out after lock-down at Gourmet Food Kitchen, I just had to write a full review. If you’re not a foodie, then in short, it was incredible. If you are, then read on…
Since bubble tea first made it’s way to the UK, it’s become more and more popular every year. It’s been something I’ve loved to drink, learned about and created for quite a few years now. It’s even had the power to bring me closer to my community and my friends! So let’s launch into some bubble tea gift ideas and see what magic boba can bring!
Now I’m going to spill some not-so-sweet tea… just before the lock-down my anxiety hit a spike after months of burying it, and I ended up having to sign myself off work due to stress. It’s not been pretty, but that’s the truth of it. Since then I’ve been phasing back and, more importantly, feeling a lot better. Here’s a few ways that I have been coping with anxiety and stress since then; I hope you find them useful.
I decided to try 30 new foods I’d never had before, in the hope of broadening my culinary experience before I turned 30. I did it but never posted this, and it was one of the few goals I managed to complete… Probably because it involved food. I hope this helps you on your journey around the foods of the world!
You probably won’t want to try the last one though…
The Life Life Well Virtual Weekender had a full 3 day line-up of speakers, influencers and experts in well-being. Throughout the weekend, they shared their knowledge and experience through online webinars, and ran various online workshops to help with mindfulness, meditation and self-care…
Although English chocolate and sweets are pretty amazing, one thing I’ve always felt they lack is INTERACTIVITY. I’ve been buying these Popin’ Cookin’ Japanese DIY sweet kits for years now and so I realised it’s about time I did a proper blog post, reviewing some of my favourites!
One thing that’s come from this lock-down is that I’ve finally cracked open some of my graphic novels that I’ve been harbouring since last year. I picked up SnotGirl: Green Hair Don’t Care, instantly finished it and bought the next one! This is my review while I wait (im)patiently for Snot Girl Vol3!
Some of my favourite geeky small businesses are still shipping throughout the lock-down! Here are just a few of the nerdier small businesses I know and love, who can keep us stocked up on nerdy goodness throughout the coming weeks.
