Ireland 2017

I’ve been away a while – sorry! But I’m back now. So. As I mentioned in my Travel 2017 post, I went to Ireland at the beginning of April for a trampolining competition and a lil’ sight-seeing. Well the vlog went up (a while ago tbh, sorry) so here it is. I hope you enjoy…

First Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

As the title may suggest, this post is about the Dewey’s 24 hour readathon which, as you may guess, is a 24 hour readathon. Yeah. Now to my reader friends out there, I have a confession to make…. It’s been about 3 months since I finished a book. There! I said it! And I know….

#iwd : Inspirational Women

So if you didn’t know, today is International Women’s Day and I’ve been thinking all day about what to say about it, because I want to say¬†something. So I thought why not compile a list of women that I find inspirational – note, that¬†I find inspirational. These aren’t in any particular order, although I’ve categorised…

Kinky Boots Review

Soooo I was lucky enough to manage to get good tickets to see Kinky Boots the other day (probably our 3rd time lucky with the half price ticket booths in Leicester Square – it’s worth having a look there if you’re interested). I’d heard good things about it but I didn’t really know what it…

School of Rock the Musical Review

O. M. G. What an experience. Holy. Fricking. Moly. Fun fact for you all, School of Rock is my favourite movie of all time (has been for like almost 10 years). And Andrew Lloyd Webber is one of my favourite musical people of all time. So when I first heard that the 2 were coming…

Places I’ve Been: Before

So seeing as I have a Travel section of this blog, indicating that I like to travel and I have traveled a fair bit, I’m figuring it’d be good to document where I’ve traveled to before starting this blog and then posting an update every year? Well that’s the plan. Anyway. I have travelled a…

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell Review (NO SPOILERS)

Okay so Fangirl came out like 4 years ago and I’ve read it about 5 times since I bought it 2 years ago. Yet I’ve never talked about on any blog. I always refer to it as THE contemporary YA novel to read, but I’ve never actually reviewed it. Until now. (also warning this is…

Travel Plans 2017

So I have a travel page, indicating I travel a lot, which I guess is true to some extent, but I now that I’m a grown up (lol) and have a bit more freedom to go wherever and plan quite a bit in advance, I thought I’d let you know what the haps (soz). I’ve…

Digital vs Physical: Music

Digital music vs physical music. It’s an ongoing fight since iTunes began in 2003 where more and more people are switching to buy digital music from iTunes and other streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music (among others). However there is still a bunch of us that are hanging on to the old…

She has the hottest boyfriend, cool friends and is a shoe-in for homecoming queen. But then one night she gets into a car accident which leaves her paraplegic and forcing her to…

Thoughts on Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen is a new musical on Broadway right now in the Music Box Theatre. I’m unfortunately not one of the lucky ones who’s been able to see it but the soundtrack was recently released and I want to talk about it. WARNING – this may be an incoherent jumble on my fangirling. soz/not…

If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo Review (NO SPOILERS)

If you followed me on Panda’s Stuff/Books, you’ll know that last year I read The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson, not only to just read a good book, but to become more educated in the subject of transgender/transexual stuff and this one adds to it. It is also a #ownvoices book and this…
