Club Tropicana at the Sunderland Empire

When I got offered tickets to see Club Tropicana The Musical I jumped at the chance because not only is my mother a big fan of Joe McElderry but the show describes itself as "the 80s answer to Love Island" and that was more than enough to convince me.

Eight queer films to add to your to-watch list

As you may have guessed from other posts on my blog, I’m a big film fan and this is especially true when it comes to queer cinema.

Common myths about bisexuality

As anyone who knows or follows me will know, being bi is something I take great pride in and that’s because it took me a long time to reach that point.

Nine queer books to pick up during LGBT+ History Month

You may or may not know that February is LGBT+ History Month! I first became aware of the campaign when I was at uni because it was widely celebrated on my campus and, since I was on the LGBT+ society committee, it was a pretty big deal for us.

Is the James Charles palette worth the hype?

Yes, the title of this post means I finally got my hands on the James Charles palette. I’m definitely a little bit late to the game on this one, but these things sold out quicker than the Greggs vegan sausage roll so what was a girl to do?

Meet Margo

If you’re one of the people who used to read my blog, you may have noticed I took a big (unintentional) break last year and barely posted anything throughout 2018. But, it’s a new year, and one of my resolutions is to post once a week so what better time than now to give my favourite little girl, Margo, a proper introduction?

I read 52 books in a year and it was a terrible idea

I actually did it. I read a book a week for a year. Or, at least, I read 52 books over the course of a year, having fallen behind schedule on more than one occasion and needing a real effort to catch up.
