10 Twitch Streamers You Should Be Watching

17 Nov 2020

No comments

Twitch is becoming a household name amongst many people - especially this year as we all 
had to stay indoors due to lockdowns (and still do in many places), many gamers around the world turned to the free streaming service to start a new hobby in their spare time which helped them interact with others who share the same interests and make new friendships.

It's been over a year since I discovered the streaming service Twitch but it's only since May this year I've really started using it. Since then I've spoken to so many kind and talented people that are building close-knit communities with their viewers, as well as supporting fellow streamers through follows, subscriptions, and even things called raids. If you're new to the terminology don't fret, Creatoko has everything you need. 

From a young age, I loved watching my brother play Grand Theft Auto, Formula 1, and even Tony Hawks Underground. (Now that takes me back) I was constantly asking questions and loved how the stories progressed which is why when I started gaming in my early teens I opted for Bratz, Sims and Animal Crossing for the old Nintendo DS which I've since dug out and have been replaying. 

Whilst I stopped playing games my interest never faded and it's thanks to the streamers below that I've found a love of gaming where I can watch, interact and follow their progress, they stream a variety of games from Dead by Daylight, Red Dead Redemption and Call of Duty. (The one game I struggle to understand and often zone out when my boyfriend talks about it, I've picked up keywords like prison and apex but that's about it!) 

Here are 10 Twitch Streamers You Should Be Watching.. in no particular biased order from 2-10! Because being in a relationship with number 1 might influence my decision.. abit! Click on their names to be brought to their twitch channels! 

1) CptFishPaste - (Call of Duty, Dead by Daylight,)
From his really cute Jigglypuff/Lurkle the Turtle emotes right down to the Jigglypuff impressions, CptFishpaste loves supporting others so if you're watching him stay until the end as one of his favourite parts of a stream is raiding another when he's finished his gaming, that will not be hard though as the banter and jokes from him will make you want to stay.

2) DaniHerron17 - (The Sims 4)
Dani is so welcoming to everyone that comes into her stream, she touches base on alot of mental health topics if someone needs to chat and also allows you to enchance your viewing experience by redeeming reward points such as 'create a sim or pet for you and even a suggestion to build something' 

3) Mkraz2 - (Fortnite, Raft) 
I love MK! Actually one of the earlier streamers I started to watch and instantly knew I was going to keep coming back! She always makes sure everyone is good and enjoying her streams and literally the world around you disappears as you get lost in them! It was my boyfriend that introduced me to her streams and then MK that introduced me to another favourite streamer who is number 4... 

4) The Batnut - (Marbles) 
If you're looking for a fun, energetic and plain wild time look so further than The Batnut! I talk none stop about his streams. On a Monday night The Batnut offers you the chance to get involved and play some marbles. You also want to be there where someone subcribes or raids him! 

5) ImaSquirrel93 - (Call of Duty)
Squirrel is down to earth, upbeat and and streams a variety of games from online poker to First Person Shooters like Call of Duty to MOBA. (Multiplayer oline battle arena) P.S I didn't write that last bit... my boyfriend did! 

6) Basicwitgirl - (Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim)
Basicwitgirl's streams are so much fun! Not only does she have the cutest pooch but you can redeem points to give them a treat and even use them as a emote if you subscribe! I'm also a member of Basicwitgirls discord and everyone is so friendly!

7) Cruzngoggles - (Stream Raiders) 
Cruz and goggles are so much fun together and always so welcoming. One thing I love about them both is their motivation and energy to build up their community and give back to those that need it. One thing they offer is a body swap reward which can be redeemed for 10,o00 points where they swap personalities for 5 minutes. This is not to be missed. 

8) Weeping Leo - (Among Us) 
If you're looking for a nice, welcoming and relaxing time look no further than Weeping Leo! Except when they're streaming Phasmophobia, because if you're like me you'll be hiding behind a pillow! 

9) Geeknthepink - (Stardew Valley) 
I always feel so positive after watching Geek as his streams are so much fun and give you an instant energy boost! 

10) Deathman1000 - (Call of Duty)
If you want some banter with a little sarcasm at times then Deathman is your man! When he partners up and streams with Cptfishpaste their streams are so much fun as they have so much lighthearted fun. 

Do you watch any the streamers mentioned? Do you watch twitch or enjoy gaming? Let me know below!

Wake up to Glitter Makeup with Jolie Beauty - Review: Bomb Dot Com Eyeshadow Palette

12 Nov 2020


Wake up to Glitter Makeup with Jolie Beauty

*Gifted Product*

When Jolie Beauty recently contacted me about receiving their Bomb Dot Com glitter eyeshadow palette to review I knew it was a 100% yes without even thinking! Every item Jolie Beauty offers on their site is cruelty-free so I knew I could relax and enjoy their product at ease, not only that though Jolie Beauty also makes many vegan products from lipsticks, eyelashes, and eyeshadows all of which you should check out. One of those Vegan products is the palette I’m raving about below! 

For so many years I've been looking for a glitter eyeshadow that gives my eyes a "pop”.  I've tried so many glitter palettes and dust pots over the years, was just about ready to give up when in walks the best makeup palette I’ve used in 2020. In my opinion! No joke.

I couldn’t wait to get it open when it arrived and the first colour I tried was the gold shade named Golden Ticket to make an Instagram Reel with. As you can see from the pictures the pigment is exactly how it looks on the palette and I couldn't believe how the overall effect remained in place after.  

I really wanted to give this palette my all and test to see how long-lasting it was which is why I did my makeup and eyes as usual and then went about my day without topping it up I should add. The end result though surprised me so much I have to be honest my first thoughts were this would be perfect for nights out and would last even after dancing for many hours on the dancefloor especially with one shade called “Disco”.

When applying the eyeshadow I realised the best methods for application were using my finger or a stiff bristle brush, perfect for those not so keen on putting their fingers close to their eyes. I recommend having some makeup wipes and cotton buds handy also just to gently rid yourself of any loose glitter on your face. 

The Bomb Dot Com Palette contains 24 shades and with its beautiful, sparkly, and elegant packaging, it is the perfect thing to display and admire on your makeup counter or space. Not only that - it comes with a matching glittery gold cardboard sleeve to help protect your product from scratches or even spillages. I've mine sitting pride of place on my beauty shelves and every morning I eye it with a smile on my face and contemplate what shade to use that day. 

The Bomb Dot Com glitter eyeshadow palette will be the perfect item to help add a little glam to your Christmas 2020, with its glittery green, red, and gold you'll be spoilt for choice, even if you’re in the house this year with shades titled “ignite, crowned, showgirl and regal” you’ll feel on top of the world, especially as it's priced at £27.99 right now.

Thank you so much Jolie Beauty for the palette and restoring my faith that anyone can achieve a glitter eye.

What do you think of the palette? Do you like wearing glitter eyeshadow? Let me know below.  

Receiving this item as a gift has not affected my opinion and my thoughts above are honest.

Happy Halloween - My Top 5 Favourite Memories

31 Oct 2020

1 comment

Happy Halloween! This post is coming a little late in the day for me but I didn't want the day to pass without marking the occasion.  

Halloween has always been a favourite time of year for me to celebrate, anything witchy, dark vibes and whatever spirits want to pay us a visit I'm welcome to have a chat with them. 

For that reason I've decided to share my reasons Top 5 Halloween Memories. (In no particular order) 

1) When I was in primary school my dad lost his job and we literally struggled for money but my parents wanted to make sure I didn't miss out so we all scrambled to find what money and change we could so I could attend the school disco. 50p entry fee was needed and we managed to find over £2 altogether which meant a little something for the tuck shop. My dad drew whiskers and a nose with a black felt tip and I was a cat! It was the highlight of my whole primary school experience.  

2) My sisters 18th birthday party was in my Grannys and as her birthdays the 30th October we ducked for apples, played games and had an amazing time. It was also the one memory I can remember where my whole family were together including my grandparents being healthy and happy. 

3) In high school there was a drawing competition and I entered it.. only it's now after 10 years I'm admitting.. I never actually drew my picture and I came second place and won a jelly lolly. My dad drew it for me LOL 

4) I started experimenting with makeup a couple years ago and it allowed me to feel confident in trying new looks and being more daring especially trying my doll look.

5) This Year. I'm spending time with my boyfriend, watching a movie and getting a takeaway then he's going to have a spooky stream on his twitch channel and I couldn't be more happy or looking forward to it. After all the unsurety in the world I'm looking forward to relaxing.  

What are you most looking forward to this Halloween? Do you have a favourite memory? Let me know below.

My Experience Dating A Gamer and Why I'd Encourage Others To

26 Oct 2020

This is a sponsored post.
Picture this, January 2020 the world is normal, a girl goes online and messages a guy she finds attractive, from his profile bio that filled her with laughter, right down to his “single and ready to get nervous around anyone I find attractive” t-shirt his personality shone through and she knew instantly she wanted to get to know him better.
Two dates, a worldwide pandemic with a lot of virtual dating and virtual gaming together then more in-person dates after the lockdown was lifted *cheers* that girl is now in a happy, loving relationship. 
That girl is me, and I’m dating a gamer. 
Or well I was... I’m now in a relationship with them.
In my experience Gamer dating is so much fun and something I believe many should try. When I first started dating my boyfriend he would tell me all about his console games and they sounded fascinating, the attention to detail, the story that goes along with it I was interested because he was sharing something he was passionate about with me just like I would talk about my love of reading and new book releases with him we were both taking the time to talk about things we enjoy doing and that’s what dating is all about, getting to know one another and wanting to spend more time with that person.

Although gaming can be seen as a bit of a hobby niche I think we need to give gamers a chance as the person behind the game and screen can be fascinating and interesting. Not only that but think about all the time and effort they put into solving a game.. When not gaming they’ll put that effort into your dates. (hopefully)
If you're wanting to check out the world of gamer dating then I suggest you check out Gamer’s Dates. The free gamer dating site where you can create your own profile, share the games you’re interested in, and chat with like-minded people who share the same interests… Hopefully, you'll find yourself your very own gamer.
According to The Entertainment Software Association,video game players are also more likely to pursue healthier lifestyles”  which can improve moods and also make you feel better mentally. Being around positive people gives you an instant boost also which sounds like a win-win to me.

If you’re worried though the person you are dating will be spending all their time gaming it could be the perfect opportunity for you to find something you’re interested in as well. My boyfriend and I have many individual interests and that’s why I feel we work, I respect his time when he needs or wants to play games and he respects mine when I'm reading.
Gaming doesn’t have to be all one-sided though or all console gaming as there are so many board games out there you could enjoy together that perhaps could bring out a little competitiveness between you both. For instance the night we played Pokemon Monopoly the game lasted for 4 hours and it’s one of the best nights I’ve had just sitting up playing games and finding something we were able to both enjoy whilst spending time with each other.
There are many virtual gaming ideas you can take advantage of as well when getting to know the gamer you’re dating. Check out my list of 5 Virtual Date Ideas where I mention different gaming options especially good for being on the go or taking 10 minutes away at night to spend with each other after a busy day.
My overall experience dating a gamer has been a positive one and I'm hoping it will continue to be, I've also found a love of gaming back for myself and looking forward to giving that a go for myself as well.
Have you ever dated a gamer? Do you enjoy playing games in your relationship? Let me know in the comments below.
I did not meet my partner on the dating site mentioned in this post.

Home Accessories For All Your Autumnal Needs

22 Oct 2020

No comments

 This post contains affiliate links.

I've relied solely on buying from Amazon for everything these past few months so it makes no difference they're my go-to for revamping my space for transitioning from Summer/Autumn and to winter! 

The darker nights get me down and I find my mental health suffers more. Already nearing the end of October I can feel my anxiety setting in which is where my ideas for distraction come on. (Mainly in the form of shopping, re-decorating, or crafting) I'm not papering over my anxiety just finding ways to direct that negative energy I'm feeling into something positive. 

And who doesn't love to shop for home essentials? 

I recently redecorated my bedroom and although it's theme is blush, grey, and cream. I'm finding ways to incorporate autumn touches into my space. For instance, as soon as I saw this Autumn Leaf Garland I knew it would be the perfect prop I needed to pop around my built-in wardrobe along with this Hello Autumn banner. 

There's also the speckled candle holders that come in a variety of colours and sizes such as champagne, rose gold and silver. The perfect candle accessories to light spicy scents. 

You could even have this table runner for a work desk, kitchen table, or even your bed. I know a friend that uses a wintry table runner on her bed and it's lush looking. It's also fun to find your own ways to display items to suit you. 

I've popped these LED leaf lights in my basket as well to help brighten up my bookcase shelves to give my bedroom a warm glow at night along with these little pinecones I purchased. Aren't they super cute? Not only will I sprinkle them amongst my shelves but I'll also use them as bookstagram props. If you want something Halloween themed but not into decorating an awful lot for the holiday then I suggest opting for this cute little LED pumpkin tealight holder is perfect. 

What do you think of my Autumn decor essentials? What are your go-to season home changes you implement? Let me know below.

Things You Shouldn't Say to Someone Whose Been In An Abusive Relationship.

17 Oct 2020


2020 isn't even over yet and already it's been a year that none of us will forget in a hurry. From Billy Joe Saunders teaching people how to properly punch their girlfriends in the face back in March, prank abuse videos on Tiktok to the worldwide pandemic that sparked a high rise in domestic violence cases - it's easy to say that we never know what is happening behind closed doors.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and I wanted to raise awareness in my own way by writing this post and to highlight in the picture taken that there is more than one type of abuse so when someone speaks about being in an abusive relationship to consider that there are so many different factors involved and you may not know what abuse they've suffered or are suffering from. 

Both Coronation Street and Eastenders in recent months hit headlines with their storylines involving Domestic Violence and it's not the first time these soaps have embraced such hard-hitting topics. From Tyrone Dobbs Corrie abuse story in 2006 and dating right back to Little Mo and Trevor in Eastenders in 2001, these soaps have once again brought us to the edge of our seats and behind the doors into Chantelle and Grey Atkins relationship and Yasmeen and Geoff Metcalfes. 

I recently got into a new relationship and ofcourse I made a joke about making it "Facebook Official" like the young ones! Sitting in Tim Hortons my phone buzzed, he'd put it up whilst sitting beside me. Laughing whilst I read the "in a relationship with" status, my smile couldn't have gotten any bigger. That was that or so I thought it would be. I didn't tell family or friends as being honest I was in a little happy bubble, I sent a quick text to my sister telling her to check Facebook and I thought that would be it. This is the first relationship since the other one and I was going at my own pace and thought I'll tell my bestie and mum that night.

I didn't send out an SOS, I didn't text or ring my family and friends because let's be honest I'm an adult, we all have so much more going on in the world, does anyone actually care? But.. it shocked me as there were those close to me who felt the need to remind me I'd been in an abusive relationship and point out "hopefully this one treats you better" or "you'll not allow this one to treat you badly" as if it is something we "allow" to happen to ourselves. There was also the fact a member of my family decided to click onto my new boyfriends Facebook and search through everything on it to make sure "this one doesn't seem like the other" Because.. abusers are so open with their actions and intentions. 

It's for this reason I've decided to write Things You Shouldn't Say to Someone Whose Been In An Abusive Relationship. 

1) "Why didn't you just leave?" 

It is so insensitive and rude to imagine someone just freely being able to walk out the door and leave but there are so many aspects and struggles you may not know or think about. The abuser could have threatened family, friends and even children. It can take years to build the courage to leave or to build the strength to even contemplate looking forward to a future without abuse. 

2) "It can't have been THAT bad" 

Not everyone talks openly about the abuse they suffered, it is all down to the individual. Whatever information someone trusts you with? Remember it's taken a lot for them to open up and tell you even a small part of what they've been through and if they never tell you? Don't assume it wasn't bad.

3)  "They seemed so nice"

They did! We know they did,  on the outside, in public, and with others especially those closest to us. Saying this almost makes it sounds like you disbelieve someone was abusive. Listen and support. They may have been a well-respected part of the community, had a well-paid job. It means nothing. 

4) "Hopefully the next will treat you better"

When my relationship ended, the last thing on my mind was meeting a new partner. I was too busy trying to build my life back up and grow my confidence back to even mull over the "next one" I didn't want a next one, I wanted to feel safe going to the shop or into town.

5) "It's normal to fight"

When it's not a two-way fight or disagreement then it is not okay. Whilst we're on the topic what is normal? 

6) "Did that really happen?" 

Whether you say this in disbelief or not, yes it really happened. Don't question if it did, we've probably overthought it into different scenarios putting ourselves down that perhaps if we'd said something different, or waiting longer to speak then what really happened.. wouldn't have.
7) "They took you away though" 

Gifts, treats and even nights away are often signs of a guilty conscience. It's their way of glueing over the cracks, making their victim believe they'll get better, until the next time where the cycle repeats..  

8) "I always sensed there was something about them" / "Name always knew they were off" 

If you did, good for you! I'm sorry I wasn't as quick as you to work it out even though you'd only met them twice and we're so nice to our faces. Remember if you've met someone a couple of times at a wedding or family gathering, you don't know them. Not really, especially if you're not close to the victim to recognise the signs of behaviour changing. 

Those 8 things have all been said to me and there's not a day that goes by I don't think about that abusive relationship with anger or sadness but repeatedly bringing up someones past to them when they are healing and trying to forward with their life doesn't help. It drags them back to a place they're fighting to get away from.

The Ultimate No Fear Halloween Watchlist

9 Oct 2020


When it comes to Halloween, I appear sometimes to be the only one that is a scaredy-cat amongst my family and friends! Horror and thriller movies are what I try to avoid as best I can as I like being able to sleep at night and not worried the bogey man is gonna try and kidnap me! When the trailers on TV advertise a scary movie coming soon to the cinema or TV channels introducing their Halloween run-up I quickly close my eyes or change the channel... then take deep breaths! 

This post contains affiliate links which means if you click and make a purchase on one of the links/banners I receive a small amount at no extra cost to you. 

This year things are looking very different - children will not be trick or treating so no need to worry if you have enough sweets to give out, there will be no parties to attend except celebrating with those in the same household with you or having a virtual one via zoom and there will certainly be no dunking for apples. 

It's for these reasons I decided to write The Ultimate No Fear Halloween Watchlist, so sit back, relax and watch some Halloween themed movies or TV shows with a bowl of popcorn to forget the world around you for a couple hours.

- Practical Magic - 

- Mean Girls - 

- Hocus Pocus - 
- Casper -

- The Twilight Saga - 

- Beetlejuice - 

- Hotel Transylvania - 

- The Addams Family - 

- Vampire Journals - 

- Monsters Inc - 

For anyone that tells me Mean Girls isn't a Halloween movie there is Halloween featured in it and Regina George has to be as frightening as some killers in horror movies. The Vampire Journals is a movie I watched for the first time over 10 years ago after the Twilight phenomenon hit and it is not what I expected but it's still as scary as I'll get! 

- Pretty Little Liars -

- The Vampire Diaries - 

- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - 

- Riverdale - 

- Shadowhunters - 

- Good Witch - 

- The Originals - 

- Killing Eve - 

All the series I've mentioned above are perfect if you're looking for something longer than a couple hours or less if you want to relax and watch a 30 minute episode! Killing Eve is a show I'm addicted to if you haven't watched it - you should!! Jodie Comer's one-liners make it everything, you can't help but laugh at times even after her drastic actions! 

The majority of these movies/shows can be found on Netflix, NOW TV and even Amazon video to rent/buy or watch for free if you have Prime.

What do you think of my list? What's your favourite Halloween of seasonal film/TV show? Let me know below.

Hello October - A New Look, A Could-List and Plans Ahead

5 Oct 2020


Hii October! Can you believe we're on our fifth day of the tenth month in 2020? I'm hoping we can all make the most of the last few months and really enjoy them so please October if you're listening! Throw some positive vibes over the world!

September has been and went, the weather is slowly changing and the nights are getting darker. I've since dug out my hot water bottle, extra fleecy blankets and invested in an Autumnal duvet set. Although I never got anywhere near as much blogging as I'd hoped done, I know this month I will as Octobers one of my favourites!

It is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and OCD Awareness Week 11-17th, two very important topics I want to highlight this month in some way. There is also Halloween to look forward to and my sisters birthday at the end of the month and I'm currently organising a little afternoon tea for her with just my mum and I. 

I had planned on writing a post on the first but when I kept coming back to my blog I wasn't enjoying it. The layout, the design, and even my motivation was lacking with everything that's going on and the unsurety of it all. It's for that reason I decided to give Voluptuous Chatterbox a little bit of a makeover. I've added some changes and everything spaced out and not all thrown on the screen like two sidebars. It kept me busy and my mind actively distracted for about three days which was what I needed. What do you think of it? 

Every month I set myself "could-do" lists instead of To do to ease the pressure of myself if I don't complete certain tasks I've added on and this month is no different. I've included below things I hope to accomplish. 

- I may tackle my bedroom and give it a repaint - 

- I'm going to paint the skirting boards in my hallway -

- Carve a pumpkin (something simple which I didn't do last year but wanted to)

- Do a Halloween inspired outfit or makeup look - 

- Try pumpkin spiced latte! - 

- Take a walk in the crisp, cold air and enjoy the changing seasons - 

- Bake some spooky treats - 

- Read a Halloween themed short story or book (I'm behind on my reading goals) -

- snuggle on the sofa under blankets with popcorn and watch a movie (Hocus Pocus or Practical Magic for sure) - 

- Make some quick and easy Halloween crafts to display - 

That is it! 10 things I'd like to do this month! 

What do you like most about October? Is there anything you're looking forward to? Let me know below!

Hello September - 12 Things You Can Do If You're Not Feeling The Autumn Months

1 Sept 2020


Can you believe it's September already? Autumn officially starts on September 22nd but it's okay if you're starting it early like me. 

I'm excited to dig out my woolly hats and also my burgundy dress (as you can see on Instagram HERE) that I wore on a night out weekend just past. I'm  also looking forward to enjoying a hot chocolate from a Miss Bohemia mug or planning a Halloween outfit. Even if there's no going out this year I'm still planning an outfit and full makeup look as it's one of my favourite times of the year. There's also cosy movie nights in, extra blankets and hot water bottles.

Autumn lets us remember the many things that are important and we're grateful for, it's the prettiest season in my opinion with all the leaves changing but there's also the downside.. the days are shorter, nights longer/darker. If you struggle with the upcoming months then check out my list below of 12 things you can do to bring a little brightness back into your day. 

1) Revamp your wardrobe - prepare and plan outfits, do a little shopping! (Primark Scarves will be out soon! *Fingers crossed*

2) Have a relaxing bubble bath, light some tealights and grab a feel good book! 

3) Enjoy a movie night in with friends, a partner, family or even by yourself! Means you don't have to share your snacks then! 

4) Have an Autumn theme photoshoot? It's less expensive than it sounds! I usually plead with my sister to take my pictures! 

5) Go for a walk in the fresh air and stand on the crunchy leaves as you go. 

6) Treat yourself to a hot chocolate or your favourite warm drink.

7) Get crafty - you don't even have to use alot of money for it. Colouring-in helps you relax, you could even try making your own Christmas cards. The Works and Poundland always have cheap but amazing quality items available. Or why not start a bullet journal?

8) Jump in puddles! You are never too old!

9) Plan a romantic night away or even a fun trip with your bestie. 

10) Change up your space and redecorate. Home Bargains always have modern, little items to include in your home.

11) Light some spicy candles - have a look for some new scents. If you're like me then the month ahead will be spicy and cinnemon. 

12) Start planning Christmas - Sometimes it's good to start planning a little early to prepare yourself from rushing. I know I'm starting my Christmas planning this month as well or plan some trips for the months you enjoy. I find it helps having something to look forward to.

Do you enjoy the coming months? What's one thing you do to enjoy the darker days? Let me know in the comments below!

A Birthday Weekend Full of Cocktails

27 Aug 2020

No comments

This weekend past I celebrated my twenty-seventh birthday.. enter big deep thoughts then basically me shutting them up with cocktails! 

On Friday I met up with a friend I hadn't seen in six months due to lockdown and honestly it was a great night to catch up on each other's lives and everything that's been happening with us! We chose to meet at Benedict's for dinner and some cocktails and the food was delicious... except the cheesecake but that's only because as it was my first time trying it and I am not a fan! If you love cheesecake, you'll enjoy it! The texture was just not for me! 

My dinner: 

Starter: Cheesy Garlic Bread
Main: Side of Mash, chunky chips and vegetables
Dessert: Malteser and Honeycomb Cheesecake 
Cocktails: Strawberry Daiquiri x a few, Pink Panther & Fruit Blast 

I'm really looking forward to the next time we meet up and hopefully it's not so long this time around. Look at that daiquiri though? Isn't it lush looking!  

* * * * *

On Sunday the day of my birthday, my mum took me out to a restaurant I love, Romas! Again choosing Strawberry Daqs as they're my favourite! The food here is always mouth-watering and I had an absolute blast, with it being just the two of us. Again I opted for my usual mash, chunky chips and veg!

I know I should start checking out other options available but when you find something you love, it's nice to stick with it! It was so quiet and definitely a good time we chose to go.

My lunch: 

Starter: Cheesy Garlic Bread
Main: Mash, Chunky chips and vegetables 
Dessert: Chocolate Brownie with Ice-Cream
Cocktails: Strawberry daiquiri 

I did manage to fit in a chippy with my Dad on the Saturday of course! It appears my whole weekend was filled with good food, company, and amazing cocktails! I have a feeling being twenty seven isn't going to be as bad as I initially thought. 

Check out the outfit I'm wearing with my new yellow blazer on Instagram HERE and also my first ever reel HERE

What do you think of the cocktails and food? How did you spend your weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

15 Aug 2020


On Tuesday I had a date where I went Ten Pin Bowling then onto play crazy golf which I'm still smiling about whilst writing this post as I had so much fun and hope to do it again soon..

We opted for the Dundonald Ice-Bowl and I was so pleased with everything they had set up in place regarding social distancing and also witnessing myself after a family had left how thorough they are cleaning everything used making me feel more comfortable and relaxed in the space around me. The customer service was excellent and I would encourage you if you're local to go and check it out for yourself and show support to the local places around us. Not just that but when you go Crazy Golfing be sure to pick up a loyalty card and for every 4 stamps, you earn a free 18 hole game to enjoy! If that's not reason enough I don't know what is.

For a week or two before though I was running my mouth telling L I was going to beat him and win... it's quick to say that didn't happen and he won... all games. *rolls eyes* I'm blaming it on the fact it's been roughly 10+ years since the last time I played and he just got lucky.. I'll win next time! Also, I was wearing flats which made me feel so tiny when I usually wear boots.. height must matter in bowling. 

As you can tell from the scores I need a lot of practice and even if he was the best cheerleader for saying 'you got this' every time to me 'cause I definitely didn't. He on the other hand was actually really good even providing tips and techniques I should try. (We'll keep it between us I said that)

The crazy golf I enjoyed so much more mainly due to the moving around and it was something I've wanted to try for many years - definitely not down to the many sexual innuendos I was saying that was keeping me entertained or that I got the ball in the hole first time, excitedly on the one he said he struggled with which resulted in me jumping like an idiot on the spot! I also managed to hit the ball in the water, the bushes, and nowhere near where it was meant to. But.. next time! Right? We decided on the 36 holes but when he mentioned it entailed two hours on our feet I was not amused though it's true what they say... time flies when you're having fun. Even in new shoes. 

This is the first-ever real fun date I've had in my dating history that wasn't lunch or coffee and although I love those dates because of Timbits and pizza. This was honestly the best date I've been on that allowed me the opportunity to break out of my comfort zone, let go, and honestly get lost in the moment. I can't recommend enough to others - Have a fun date! Laugh your butt off and allow yourself to jump on the spot, smile like a goof, and loosen up! You won't have the awesome company I did. But it'll be worth it.

What do you think of these two ideas for a date? Have you been on any dates post-lockdown? Are there any date ideas you recommend I try? Let me know in the comments below.
