My Favourite Books

I don’t like making lists of my favourite books, albums, songs, movies etc because they always fluctuate. Something always comes along that makes me think “Wait, this is amazing!” or I simply out grow what I once loved. There’s also the fact that for a quite a substantial amount of time I didn’t have a… Continue reading My Favourite Books

What I thought of The Umbrella Academy

I’ve been a massive fan of Gerard Way for most of my life, both as the frontman of my favourite band, and as a comic book writer. I’ve been waiting to see the Umbrella Academy on screen since I was at least 16, and it’s finally here! I re-read Apocalypse Suit, and Dallas before the… Continue reading What I thought of The Umbrella Academy

What I learned in my first year of college

I feel like orientation day was yesterday yet I’ve just finished my first year of college. Sub-editing and Design taught me to avoid cliches (Sorry, Colin), but the year honestly flew by, especially the second semester. It’s not often that I get personal here, but it’s been quite a year and perhaps I can pass some wisdom onto those poor unfortunate Leaving… Continue reading What I learned in my first year of college

Book Review: A Clockwork Orange

The novel by Anthony Burgess was released in the 1960s and is not considered a classic and essential read. It may then be surprising that I’ve only read it now, despite it having a place on my reading list for at least four years now. The novel follows protagonist Alex’s fall from grace, reformation, and… Continue reading Book Review: A Clockwork Orange

“I don’t think you’re an idiot, you just need to have a bit more respect for yourself”

Everyone seems to be relieved that 2016 is finally ending, and while I’m skeptical that January 1st will make all the bad things stop, I want to be hopeful. Aside from spending the entire year (and probably the rest of my life) mourning David Bowie, I’ve experienced a lot and as cliche as it sounds,… Continue reading “I don’t think you’re an idiot, you just need to have a bit more respect for yourself”

Book Review: Animal Farm

I have wanted to read George Orwell’s Animal Farm for the longest time, despite the entire plot and it’s meaning being spoiled for me. It’s quickly become one of my favourite books, and one I believe is very important. An old boar, Old Major, on the Manor Farm predicts the Rebellion of animals against humans… Continue reading Book Review: Animal Farm

London Bucket List: 221b Baker Street & Sherlock Holmes sights

As a big Sherlock Holmes fan, both the books and show with Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman, one of the things I was the most excited about for London was getting to see the Sherlock sights! Next to the Harry Potter sights, I’d say that Sherlock was the most important part of my London Bucket… Continue reading London Bucket List: 221b Baker Street & Sherlock Holmes sights

What I Thought of The Lion King Remake

The long awaited Lion King remake is out, and I have a lot of thoughts. For those who are new to my blog: The Lion King has been my favourite movie since birth. I’m literally writing this on my bed which has Lion King bedsheets, and theres’ more than one item or push toy with… Continue reading What I Thought of The Lion King Remake

Sustainable Fashion Haul

In January I suggested being more sustainable as a New Year’s resolution, with saying goodbye to fast fashion featuring in the post. Since then I’ve upped my own sustainable fashion game, and got addicted to Depop (not sponsored, just a recommendation), this week alone I completed the 1Day No Single Use Plastic Challenge in collaboration with… Continue reading Sustainable Fashion Haul

What’s the deal with remakes?

For the past few years, nostalgia, remakes, and sequels have been spewed out all over Hollywood – with Disney particularly getting into remakes – from the failed Heathers reboot to several different Spidermans in less than 20 years, and even video games like Crash Bandicoot have gotten reboots, it feels like there isn’t a whole not… Continue reading What’s the deal with remakes?
