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.
Heyyyy! It’s ya girl, Amy, back at it again with some awesome new conte… no, I can’t keep this up. Yeah, hi – I was gone, and now I’m back. Over the course of the year I’ve not really felt like blogging. I mean, who could blame me for not exactly feeling motivated enough to do anything but dip my toe occasionally. But I thought, seeing as it’s Halloween season (aka… September right up to October 31st) I’d start producing some more posts for my favourite time of the year.
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…
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!
