A young woman gets ready to to run an event – she’s good at them, she enjoys talking to people, she is passionate for the topic – she leaps at the chance. She wakes up on the day, and oh no – it’s a battle to leave her bedroom. She can run through a thousand reasons in her head as to why this just can’t happen today. Maybe tomorrow… Just not today.
Okay, so it’s not THE Mary Shelley herself of course, but the writer of the Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein theatre production, Rona Munro. As many of you may know, I am a massive Halloween fan and an avid reader (…also I’m a little bit of a goth!) I hope you enjoy this insightful interview with Rona, and it helps give a bit of context to the play, if you plan to see it!

I recently started a local community in my area, and was asked by a fellow geek – how do I start one in my area? Coventry Geeks is all about local people connecting through their mutual love of fandoms, nerdiness and geek culture. With the success of how it’s gone so far, I wanted to share just how you can make a community for yourselves!
My friend and the creator of the Coventry Sticker Album, Aaron Ashmore of Etch and Pin, allowed me the absolute pleasure of proof reading this beautiful book before it’s release and I’ve been excited about it for MONTHS! Had to get my hands on a copy and find out what it’s all about!
Following on from the response to my posts about geeky things to do in Coventry, I thought why not expand my horizons and do a tour of a local city – Birmingham. Check out what are, in my opinion, the best nerdy geeky things to do on a day trip!
Being creatively confident in my writing / blogging, happened through 3 major epiphanies in the last year. I felt like I was drowning in my hometown – although the opportunities to write were growing, so was the blogger community and often I feel a bit overwhelmed by it all!
There’s always this “Am I good enough?” feeling. So I’ve decided to tackle it head on!
We’ve all heard it hundreds of times before. ‘He’s giving you grief? Cut that negativity out of your life.’ ‘Ugh, looking at them just makes me feel awful/angry… Unfollow. Unfriend. Disconnect.’ Whenever we’re presented with negative or challenging thoughts we’re encouraged to cut them out…
Here’s why (in my humble opinion) you shouldn’t.
Treetop Adventure Golf (Leicester, Highcross) kindly invited me to their launch party this June and oh boy, we had a great time! Read on for a full review…
Disclaimer: This was a free launch party event so I didn’t have to pay for anything, but read on to find out more about why it’d be worth every penny!
When I was 28, which seems such a short time ago, I made a list of 30 goals I wanted to achieve before I was 30. Simple right? Make 30 plans, stick to them and tick them off one by one. Ha!
It was over dinner on our first night in Malta, as Lizzie and I delicately nibbled our bruschetta by the sea and talked about the following day’s plans, that something inside me clicked. We talked about our body confidence as we planned to visit Comino’s Blue Lagoon and chill out in our bikinis in one of the Maltese island’s most popular tourist sites.
