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.

Now that a few weeks of lockdown have passed, I know what you’re all thinking.
“What cooperative video games can I play with my partner/family that will make us even more annoyed with one another?”
Well, have no fear! Here are my top 7 co-op Steam games that will leave you screaming at each other.
I asked my lovely friend, Rachel, for her top tips on how to play a fighter in D&D. Rachel has been playing as a fighter in a regular campaign for some time now, and as I’m used to more of a spell-caster vibe of character, I thought the lockdown would be the perfect opportunity to pick her brains!
Self-isolation is tough as hell! So I thought I’d give you all just a few geeky isolation activities to get you through the gloom! If you’ve got any of your own, comment them below…
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!
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…
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 had the good fortune to meet Katie from Serpentile, who makes beautiful D&D dragon statement pieces, through the magic of social media. She approached me first to support me as she’d seen by my body confidence blog post and it struck a chord with her… and after seeing her beautiful D&D themed creations I just had to follow and support her right back!
