    Frost/Nixon: A Night At The Theatre

    So last night myself and Danielle headed to the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield to go and see their latest production, Frost/Nixon! The lovely Ellie who works there invited me and my plus one over for a blogger event with some other local Sheffield Bloggers. We began the night with a Frosty Nixon cocktail or two made by the guys over at Crucible Corner¬†¬†before the show. I couldn’t believe how much I liked a cocktail that contained gin, vodka, tequila AND rum (I usually hate 3/4 of those spirits)! When we arrived we found they’d thrown us an entire 70’s party, disco ball and everything! They had the best playlist I’ve…

    February Favourites

    With the end of February drawing near, I’m hoping that Spring may finally be in the air- it’s about time we had some warmer weather instead of the relentless biting cold. I’ve managed to accumulate a few favourites over the past few weeks, although admittedly not as many as January, but then again it is a shorter months so I suppose that’s to be expected. Not to mention I’ve spent the last couple of weeks glued to my laptop, a slave to my degree, so that really cuts down on the time to find new things I like. First up, a foodie favourite! I’ve had the Tanya Bakes book by…

    Products I’m Trying To Use Up

    I have regularly posted Empties posts for the last year, but you may remember in my most recent one I pledged to try and reduce my use of plastics and buy more ‘naked’ products with zero packaging. Well I’ve stuck to my word and have been using a solid shower gel, shampoo and body scrub so that’s 3 less bottles used! However some products have to be packaged and I still possess quite a few of them. Today I have compiled a list of a few items which I am attempting to finish off before I recycle their packaging. I chose these items for various reasons including the fact that…

    Big Magic Book Review

    So I’m pretty certain this post is my first proper book review. I’ve mentioned books before and briefly given an overview in favourites posts but I’ve never focussed a post solely on one book before. I’m putting it out there now I will go into a bit of detail, but in theory because it’s not fiction there can’t really be any terrible spoilers. You might have heard talk about Big Magic over the last couple of years, and rightly so. I first heard about it through word of mouth from other bloggers and YouTubers, it seems to be a bit of a bible to us online lot. It’s written by…

    6 Ways to Relieve Stress

    Self Care is a big thing nowadays, everyone is telling you to practice it, and for good reason. Self care is essentially looking after yourself both physically and mentally and making sure you’re in a good place. There’s also a bit of contention around the subject, often due to people’s differing mental health. To some people self care genuinely is sticking on their favourite candle, running a bath or having a walk. Whereas for others it may be a case of removing themselves from social situations which make them feel uncomfortable or severing ties with toxic people in their life. There is no right and wrong way of doing it,…
