I had such a decadent day, friends. It has been one of the most soothing and reinvigorating afternoons ever. There’s nothing quite like taking an afternoon off and trying something new… Especially if that something new happens to be a spa.
Coventry Assemble! Opening night for Assembly Festival Space
For the first time in what feels like so long I am BUZZING! I attended the opening night of Assembly Coventry – the new festival space now open in Coventry City centre as part of the City of Culture 2021. I was invited to a night of incredible entertainment, food and best of all… a festival atmosphere. How I’ve missed it! It’s been too long…
No filters: An afternoon tea story
HOW can anyone function in this heat? I’ve had the most lovely week off for my birthday with the most glorious weather but now it’s getting a bit much! My friend, Lizzie, and I sought out the shade when we visited the Laura Ashley tea rooms today for my final birthday celebration!
This Girl is on Fire! Rekindling my blogging spirit
Lately, I’ve been feeling quite sad that my blog has remained dormant for so long! After a brief chat with my pal, Lizzie, she’s told me that once she stopped worrying about stats, or “having something important to say” it took a weight off her mind and now she just posts what she feels. Reports on all her days out, her outfits, her feelings. That’s what I’ve been missing from blogging! That… and the additional time it takes to write.
Coventry Blogger: A bespoke experience at BIB Noodle Bar*
There’s one thing I will always believe in, and that’s the kindness of strangers. After speaking to Brad, who runs Bib Noodle bar with his wife, Qifen for just a few short encounters, he was kind enough to offer me and my pals an exclusive dining experience to experiment with their new menu! Here’s how it went.
Unmissable Dining in Coventry: Gourmet Food Kitchen Review
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…
Eating Dried Crickets (and 29 other Awesome Food Experiences)
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…

Theatre Review: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is one of my favourite books, so when I was invited to the Belgrade Theatre to watch an on stage adaptation, I practically snatched their hands off! Never mind the pressure of performing in front of hundreds of other people every night, I don’t think the crew realised what pressure they were under having to impress me. The standards were going to have to be very high indeed…
AD – Breaking the “Too Busy” Barriers – Reconnecting with Good friends and Great games*
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!
