    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…

    Christmas at Kew

    It’s the last post of the year! Can you believe that this year has gone by this quickly?! I thought I’d mark the end of the year with a lovely picture of post of Mutay and I’s trip to Kew Gardens the other night. The stress that we went through trying to get there in time was unreal, but it was totally worth it because we had a wonderful time. Christmas at Kew is a unique night-time experience and we found ourselves on a one-mile sparkling path throughout the world-famous botanic gardens. There were lights, festivities, food (most important, of course) and we got to ride a carousel. Haven’t been on one of…

    #GamesOnTheBGO

    Apologies for what seems to be a fail of a Blogmas series! Mutay and I have both been so busy with work (that’s always our excuse, isn’t it) and with Christmas literally two days away, it’s hard to squeeze anything in between last minute Christmas shopping and eating literally all of the food. Nevermind, eh? I’m back now and I just want to talk about the amazing time I had at the Murder Mystery night with bgo, Joe Blogs and Agent November.

    Spooktacular Halloween Make Up Class

    I haven’t always ‘celebrated’ Halloween. I remember when I was younger, my mum never used to let us go trick or treating because she didn’t believe in Halloween and she’s quite a strict Catholic. However, over the years I’ve found myself actually doing something for Halloween now – whether it be fancy dress or just going out with friends, I love going out on this spooky night! When I got an email from Joe Blogs about a Halloween make up class, I jumped at the chance to attend. Located in the rather lush Thistle Holborn hotel, bloggers were treated to devilishly good food and drink, plenty of laughs and a…

    Carnival Fiesta

    ¡Arriba! Everyone loves a good fiesta, and what with Christmas coming up now is always a good reason to party. Instead of the usual mistletoe-tinsel-snow theme, why don’t you go for a carnival theme – something that will get you in the mood for summer. (Admittedly, I am more of a summer person, but Christmas is always still much fun (except for the cold)) Thanks to Thomas Cook Airlines, I was invited to their Blogger Bash at Barrio East in Shoreditch back in October and I honestly had the best time ever. Carnival is always something to look forward, especially around August time when London plays host to Notting Hill Carnival.…

    An Ode to Christmas Joy!

    I should have started out on a more lighter post but due to the current decisions made by the British government my thoughts have turned into sour grapes, not the Merlot kind. This time of year really makes us think about others but more often than not we make plans in our minds rather than in the physical. It is important to look past the decisions made by the minority for the majority and spread some love! Spreading Christmas joy is easy! And it makes people around you feel better and more welcome. Here are a few of my thoughts on how to spread some joy this December, we can…

    Why You Should Actually Watch Love Actually

    So, I’m sure you might have noticed that I haven’t been posting as frequently. That’s because, as I mentioned in a previous post, I have new job, which pretty much saps up most of my energy. It’s been nearly 2 months at the job, and I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. When Mutay suggested we do blogmas, I jumped at the chance to add new content to the blog! This is the first proper post of December, and I’m really excited to get started. I wasn’t sure about what to write about as there are a multitude of things to do with Christmas that I could write…
