One thing I am thankful for is that I am able to write this post, since there’s so much time for self-reflection and hobbies nowadays. I’ve been feeling for so long (since around October to be exact) like a shell of myself. Like I’d essentially peaked at 30 and I was now somehow struggling back uphill to become something I used to be…
WHERE TO BEGIN?! I had an absolutely excellent time (no I shan’t be using any egg based puns) at the Gudetama themed cafe in Brighton! It was so cute that I just couldn’t keep the smile off my face every time something new came to the table.
Here’s why I’d highly recommend it!
Something that many people don’t know about me is that I am low-key obsessed with weddings. I don’t really know if I’ll get married myself but it doesn’t stop me being 100% into other people celebrating their love, and helping create a perfect happy day for someone I care for is my jam. So when one of my best friends invited me to Rock n Roll Bride Live, I just had to say YES!
I first heard that Nerdy Coffee Co were opening a board game cafe in Shrewsbury, when I visited for a friend’s wedding. I had the good fortune of meeting the owners there and chatted about how exciting it was that they were opening soon.
So after my friends made their vows, I made one of my own – one day, I’d visit that board game cafe with the happy couple! And we did.
Nothing like a new year to kick yourself into making changes right? The last two years have been pretty good for me! When I look at how far I’ve come in such a short time, it’s kinda liberating! But where do I go from here?
I’m going to set myself some new goals and see if I can keep to them!
*cue scoffing and murmurs of doubt from the crowd*
WOW. What a year… I know things have turned a bit rubbish recently but you know, I’ve had a fantastic year! I’ve enjoyed about 90% of it which I’d say is pretty fantastic. This post is mostly here as I just wanted to write down all I’ve done this year and reflect on how many things have progressed. So often I feel like I’m going nowhere fast so…. time to prove myself wrong!
Hiding things you feel, doesn’t work. Calling things something they’re not doesn’t work. Repressing feelings doesn’t work. Holding your tongue doesn’t work. Believe me, I’ve tried. So from now on I’m going to be unabashedly unfiltered… and here’s why.
Cutter and Squidge Potion Room is a masterpiece of wizardry. Set in a basement in the heart of Soho, it transports you right across the magical plane through the power of immersive dining, potion making and general silliness! We giggled with anticipation as we were taken down the steps to the underground potion room and shown to our seats. It was here that the magic unfolded…
Adult life is so hard, huh? Often when you want to reconnect with your friends, you compare calendars and there’s that all too familiar scenario… “How does the 5th sound?” “I’m out that day what about the 7th?” “Oh, I can’t do that… 9th?” “Busy then… Erm…”
That’s why when the fantastic team over at giffgaff gifted me a games night kit and challenged me to host a games night, I thought it’d be a fantastic way to reconnect my friends as a group. We’d not spent any time together for so long and it seemed like the perfect excuse!

I planned to write a ton of Halloween themed posts this October, but I’ve been so busy making those Halloween plans that I’ve not managed to write a single one! Instead, I thought I’d share the ways I’ve been getting into the spirit of Halloween and managed to make it last all throughout October.
