    My Christmas Playlist

    Every time I hear Jingle Bell Rock I just think of Mean Girls and Gretchen kicking the boom box into Jason’s face. I die every single time of laughter. Classic. Time to bust out your Christmas jumper, make a hot drink and settle down to some festive tunes. I love Christmas songs, but I don’t really get into them until it’s actually December. Anytime before that and I’m like, “NOOOO, IT’S TOO EARLY.” I swear Christmas starts in the shops earlier and earlier every year — I swear it’ll become a thing where before we’ve even finished summer, they’ll be decorating the windows with Christmas lights and tinsel. A good classic Christmas song…

    My Top 5 Christmas Films

    I absolutely love Christmas films because they always get me in the spirit. I love tucking myself into bed in my onesie and surrounding myself with snacks whilst I watch one of my favourite films. I did this the other day when I watched Christmas Prince on Netflix and oh my gosh… what an absolute sh*te film, but yet I still watched it the whole way through 😂 Anyway, here are my top 5 Christmas films (in no particular order (Okay, well if you read my posts in 2015 then you’ll know Love Actually is no. 1, but whatever whatever)) Elf (2003) I remember watching this for the first time and…

    Christmas Baking

    Tis the season to be jolly! 🎄 Today marks 1 week until Christmas, which also means the start of Weekmas which Mutay suggested I do as I did want to have some festive posts up, but I don’t have time for Blogmas or 12 Days of Christmas! I’ve been really getting into the festivities this season and despite it still not feeling exactly like Christmas just yet for me, it’s been really fun. From decorating my desk at work (my extra ass bought a small Christmas tree and put tinsel and lights on my screen) to the gingerbread house decorating (click here to see how it turned out), it’s definitely getting me…

    MCM Comic Con 2017

    I think this is what one would call a blog post… yes? This post was intended for October, but better late than never, am I right? I reopened this post this morning and looked at what I had already written and realised it was no longer relevant because why? I FINISHED NANOWRIMO! NaNoWriMo actually helped kickstart my creative juices again and ugh, it was so good to actually be writing every day again. Such a sweet feeling to reach 50k, as well! At this point, I have no idea where my plot is going. I have a plot outline and a vague notion of what I want to happen, but…

    #AEGTasteofXmas

    A blog post in the middle of the week? Yeah, your eyes aren’t seeing things. I realise I’ve been away from the blogosphere for the longest time, but that was entirely unintentional. I’ve been putting most of my time and energy into NaNoWriMo this month and a lot of other things have happened since I last posted, but I’ll write about them slowly but surely and catch you guys up. Anyway, moving on… A few weekends ago, I went to Hertfordshire to join some fellow bloggers in a cooking lesson at The Cookery and had the best time ever. Just need to get this out of the way but is…

    University Confessions

    It’s been 4 years since I graduated from university but I’ve been thinking more and more about what I would change if I could redo my university years. This is most likely because my sister is looking at universities now to attend next year, and I remember the excitement of going to open days and the trepidation of leaving home for the first time. My university years are something that I look back on with fondness and also with a hint of annoyance because there are definitely things that I could have done better/differently, but hindsight, am I right? 5 Things I Wish I’d Did At Uni 1. Joined a…

    Let’s Talk About Relationships

    Much like my ‘Being Mixed Race’ post, this topic has been floating around my drive for a while and I’ve been wanting to write about it for ages. Since starting the ‘Let’s Talk About…’ series, I’ve been thinking about what topics I can write about and thought this is the perfect opportunity – especially as it has been a while since the last post. Relationships are a tough topic for me just because they’re always so complex to dive into – questions like, “Why did this break down?” “Why did I even date them in the first place?” “Will I be single forever?” But it is such an interesting topic…

    Life Lately 5

    September has been a bit hectic, ain’t it? I didn’t expect my September to be so busy! I haven’t had a chance to sit down and plan posts, which is something that I usually do. Anyway, here’s a post now and a round up of my September. ALOPECIA AWARENESS September marked Alopecia Awareness Month and so I made a big decision to shave the remainder of my hair off! I didn’t have much left anyway, but there was always this feeling that that’s still my hair and shaving it is a big deal. For once I can actually look in the mirror and not cringe anymore. It’s still a bit…

    Meeting Amy

    My blogger meet up list is becoming extensive and I am LOVING it. This is what I love about the blogosphere – the opportunity to meet up with people you’d probably never meet in your day-to-day life. A couple of weeks ago, I got to meet up with Amy and it was definitely a long time coming. She messaged me to say that she’d be in London and I just knew we HAD to meet up. Gotta take every opportunity you can, especially as she lives all the way in Leeds! I decided that we should go to Carluccio’s, as you can’t go wrong with some good ol’ Italian. We…

    The Food Diaries // 018

    When your friend relies on you to take them to the best food places, you kind of have to pull out all the stops. Aside from myself and Mutay’s monthly dinner, I also meet up regularly with one of my friends and take her to what I believe to be the best places to eat in London. There have been some places which have been completely new to me, as well, however, my gut is always right and the places we’ve visited have been amazing. Last month, I decided on Flesh & Buns for our meet up as I had been before and was absolutely floored by how good the…
