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…
In his daily life, Dominic Russell is a Neanderthal. A Viking Warrior. A Roman Centurion. He runs history workshops for children in one-off “Wow” days. His mission is to engage children (and adults) with history. He’s brimming with ideas, consistently drawing from his vast knowledge of local history and applying it to his everyday experiences, he has a unique perspective of what Coventry was, what it is and what it could be.
It is with much anticipation that I wait in the Old Grammar School in Coventry to celebrate the release of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at the Belgrade Theatre. Along with the cast from Nightmares and Nibbles, we settle down to chat about where they draw their inspirations and how they feel about the characters they play.
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!
Those of you who have been following for me for a long time, (waves to that one guy way at the back of the room), may remember when I wrote my post last year about the best geeky things to do in Coventry. I am happy to say that since then, my list has expanded!
Nerdy bits and pieces are popping up everywhere – here are but a few of them.
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!

You might get into the feeling that you can’t cosplay a certain thing because you’re plus size, so I wanted to try and find the best plus size cosplay around – not necessarily because they’re plus-size characters (like Ursula or The Queen of Hearts) but showing you can do the characters justice, regardless!
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.
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?
