The Geeky Girl Tag

With comic con season in full swing (got to love Summer for that!) I thought I’d do the Geeky Girl tag after reading Sarah’s answers on her blog, Raiin Monkey. So without further ado… The Geeky Girl Tag (1) What’s your must-have tech gadget? At the moment it has to be my Samsung Galaxy S7. I use it for everything; taking photos, blogging, keeping in contact with my friends and family worldwide, listening to music etc. It used to be my laptop but it’s on its last legs now and none of the USB ports are working correctly and it […]

Staycation & birthday celebrations 2017

Ryan and I booked the first week of May off work with the original intention of a road trip through Ireland, but due to the unknown state of our housing situation towards the end of March (you can read more about that in my moving back in with your parents as an adult post) we decided to save the money just in case we needed it for a rental or renewal deposit or for storage rental. We decided to keep the week booked off and planned a staycation instead with plans to travel Ireland next year. Day 1 – Cardiff City […]

Spring London Film and Comic Con – Nick Frost

This weekend was Spring London Film and Comic Con and I headed down on the Saturday to meet Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block, Hot Fuzz etc) and catch up with some friends. The day started early with us catching the coach to London at around 5am so we could get in the queue early and have a better chance at meeting Nick Frost, it’s never guaranteed but we’ve never missed out on meeting someone we really wanted to yet (*touch wood*). Once we got to London it was a short tube ride from Victoria to West […]

Star Wars Day, Darth Vader Bread Recipe

Happy Star Wars day and May the 4th be with you! It’s that time of year again, where my Facebook and Pinterest feeds are full with well wishes and Star Wars themed puns. Last year my family and I had a Star Wars themed party and watched all 6 films back to back… This year is slightly different; we still have Star Wars themed food but went for another film franchise this year: Batman (so 7 films to try and get through 😉 ). We made Darth Vader bread for today’s ‘feast’ – it looks great (although cracked a little […]

Star Wars Day Party 2014

Happy Star Wars Day and, of course May the 4th be with you. If you weren’t aware today is international Star Wars Day, not something I’ve celebrated greatly in the past. Besides wishing my Star Wars fan friends/family a Happy Star Wars Day. But, this year my dad decided we should watch all 6 films back to back! Because, why not! We’ve never attempted watching them all in one go before and Artur has never seen any of the films! So he needs educating. 😉 I decided to be really geeky and have a Star Wars Day Party with themed […]
