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.
I cannot believe that Game of Thrones is coming to an end. I remember when I started watching it almost 8 years ago. The first season had just ended and I was at University looking for something good to watch. So I watched the first episode. And the second…
You know how I’ve got a LITTLE bit of a pin-badge obsession? (Don’t we all nowadays?) Well I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing a maker of pin badges, glitter necklaces and earrings, BekBekMakes. A Coventry local, a mum and a maker – find out how she started off her creative career with a bang!

Just a quick update from me today. Recently, I’ve not been feeling 100% – all my strength has gone, all my fire has burnt out, my self-esteem has plummeted. I’ve been working too hard, and not on the right things that make me happy. That’s why I’ve decided to focus my efforts solely on things which bring me joy… like ALL the Bubble Tea.

Ever wondered why there’s a really fine line between really damn creepy, and super cute / cool when it comes to CGI creatures / characters? It’s actually something that’s hard-wired into our brains – something known as, the Uncanny Valley.
Let me launch right in by writing about some of the amazing small businesses that I met at FarGo Village Vegan Festival last weekend. FarGo hosted their bi-annual vegan fair which is always a massive favourite of mine – I make a point of going there to support the tenants and FarGo themselves as much as possible.
Before you say it, no… I was not tutored by Sir Ian, I just went to see him on his 80th Birthday tour. It really gave me an idea about who he is as a person, not just an actor and honestly, it was like talking with a friend. He really made a lasting impression on me so, I wanted to document what I learned along the way.
I did something today that I thought I’d never be able to do again. I took part in GoApe in Coventry. My body screamed “Don’t do it!”, my mind screamed “You’re crazy!” but this tiny part of me looked back at my scouting days and said…
“You’ve just got to try…”
So I don’t normally write posts about stuff I’ve bought because often, well, I don’t buy things in bulk for no reason in a “haul” fashion. Most of the times I’ve been looking for Japanese snacks I’ve bought a JapanCrate or shopped at Tofu Cute when I’ve seen them at MCM Comic Con or something similar. I thought last week I’d check out their online store for the first time…
It was the most perfect mistake.
Yet again, I have encountered something that I love so much that I just had to write about it there and then! The Dice Box in Leamington was on my list of places to visit and after going there today I was so impressed, that I wanted to write a little review of it! It’s really worth the visit!
