What better way to learn more about your favourite independent bookshop than to talk to the owner! The person who created a wonderful writing haven for me – the genius (?) behind it all…
I wanted to do a little bit of a life update as I’d not done one for a while! Also last weekend me and some of my favourite nerds went to a Harry Potter Supper Club and Quiz in Coventry, so I thought I’d write about that too. Because why not?
This post is about a gifted experience courtesy of Bubble Boba UK – Coventry.
So many of us are obsessed with Bubble Tea nowadays but not so many of us take the time to figure out where it comes from, how it’s made and what it contains! I had the absolute pleasure of organising and partaking in the first ever Bubble Tea Master Class with Bubble Boba UK* who treated my blogger pals and I to an exciting Easter experience where we learned how to make bubble tea!
My new favourite nerd heaven, Fantayzia Designs, invited me to play with their retro games consoles and check out their nostalgic treasures. I sat for a few hours and have to say it’s now my absolute favourite for nerdy nostalgia and creations at FarGo Village, Coventry.
I think we’ve established many times that I am super awkward when it comes to being put in front of a camera. I envy some of my friends to whom it comes naturally – watching them swing around at their professional photoshoot, laughing and posing. They make it look so easy but then suddenly it’s my turn… and I freeze like a rabbit in head-lights.
If you hadn’t guessed from my previous posts, I absolutely love Halloween, and try to theme my whole October around it! Me and my friend Lizzie always have blogging days – just one super productive day per month where we can focus and bounce ideas off one another. However this time, we decided to extend it into a Halloween sleepover! We stayed up late, watching Halloween themed movies and enjoyed loads of Halloween snacks!
Here’s just a little something extra from me following from my last Nerdy Enamel Pins post! I’m always looking to collaborate with local businesses, and when I heard that Coventry had it’s own pin badge club I just had to get one!
You may recall my recent post about the Herbert Art Gallery and it’s amazing hidden Medieval Undercroft, that I had the pleasure of visiting. My friend Dom, who is a historian offered me an exclusive tour and then we spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around the area and ended up in the Holy Trinity Church.
You often do not realise the beauty that lies right before you. My friend from Switzerland for example, hardly ever took pictures of the beautiful mountains and landscapes that surrounded him until I looked at them in awe when I visited.
This weekend, I took the time to look at just how beautiful and historic Coventry was, and saw things I hadnt noticed until I looked at it with such tourist-like focus. I have always been proud of my city; it’s something that’s kinda instilled in us Coventrians but most of my pride lay within it’s latest developments and not it’s history.
This week I had the privilege of meeting Hilary from Craftiv8 – a company focused on bringing new and innovative ways of crafting into the mainstream. When I met Hilary at a local craft fair, the thing that drew me to them newest development- Galactic Plastic!
