    Hogwarts in the Snow

    A post twice in one week?! Le gasp. Who is this new Chynna who has decided to grace you with her presence? New year, new me, init. I don’t usually succumb to the tune of “new year, new me” but if the shoe fits. I had a bunch of half-written posts sitting around, so I thought let me make them whole and post them up because they deserve to see the light of day instead of festering around like unwanted leg hair. For any Harry Potter fan, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is an absolute must. Despite having visited 4 times already, the studio…

    Running Through the 6ix

    … with my woes. I have a feeling that this post is definitely going to be my longest out of all the ones I’ll be posting. When I was going through the things we did when we were in Toronto, I actually had no idea how much we did. Admittedly, there are a lot of things that I still want to see in Toronto so a trip back is definitely needed. Canada is actually on my list of places to work abroad and this trip was partly to give me an insight into what Toronto is like. I love Toronto. Being a city girl, Toronto is definitely the sort of place I…

    Friendsmas

    Merry Christmas Eve! Tomorrow is officially Christmas — are you ready?! I literally just finished my Christmas shopping yesterday. Since finishing work up for the holidays, I have eaten a ridiculous amount that it’s no wonder that I don’t look like a small whale, right now. I mean as I am typing this, I am eating 😂 That’s my favourite part of Christmas, not that I need an excuse, but the amount of food consumption. To be fair, I should be careful though because I have definitely started to feel the effects of eating too much… At the moment, though, can’t stop, won’t stop! This week, I’ve had three Friendsmas gatherings…

    Life Lately 4

    In my “And We’re Back” post I mentioned that I hadn’t really done much whilst on my hiatus, but that is actually a lie. Looking back, I actually did quite a bit including meeting Pauline and Hamdah, seeing Tiff again and going to the Harry Potter Studio Tour and eating a helluva lot of KBBQ. Here’s a quick life update for y’all including plenty of food pics, so settle in with a cuppa tea and see what I’ve been up to. BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES Mutay always finds the best things to do around London and if it weren’t for her I’d probably just be in my bed watching Netflix and…

    Why I Love Weekends (When I Have Them Off)

    It feels so much better not to have to post on a schedule.  Not that there’s anything wrong with posting on a schedule, but I remember last year when I felt the need to post at least 3 times a week and with work and other commitments, it felt too much like a chore and sapped the fun out of it a little bit. Here’s a visual representation of last year: Nevertheless, I feel more at ease now that I blog when I want to. Got my cup of coffee, I’ve lit my Glade Honey & Chocolate Candle and I’m listening to Apple Music’s playlist ‘R&B Gems: 2013’ because why not –…

    Liebster Blog Award 2

    This is actually the second time I’ve been nominated for the Liebster blog award – you can read the first post here. Meaghan nominated me for this award, so thank you! All you have to do is answer the 11 questions from the person who nominated you and then you ask your own set of 11 questions to people you nominate! 🙂 1. What is one thing that makes you happiest? Hmm. I would have to say writing because I can just let out all my emotions on paper and instantly feel better/happier. Also, food. And TV, come to think of it (sad life). 2. If you could live for…
