Furniture Painting with the Mercantile Adventurers

Finding my inner Picasso I don’t get to see my mum very often these days – it’s almost impossible to find a time when we’re both free, and she hates it. I don’t even think she’d be satisfied if we saw each other every day. So this December, I decided to get her something a little different for Christmas – some much coveted mother-daughter bonding … Continue reading Furniture Painting with the Mercantile Adventurers

Life Lately | The Prince, the Quiz Night, and a Boundless Summer

I’m a very conflicted person when it comes to having a social life. Half of me is a bonafide introvert who likes to stay indoors, far away from humanity – and the other half is always anxiously thinking I’m not living life to its fullest, pushing me to take advantage of every possibility that arises.

It just has to be done. One of my absolute favourite ways to get into the Halloween spirit though is to watch horror … Continue reading 18 Iconic Horror Film Locations You Should Check Out This Halloween

Harry Potter Filming Locations in London

It’s been 10 years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was published. How insane is that? I remember exactly where I was when I started flicking through the first chapter – sat in the car park of a local supermarket, not long after midnight. I continued to read through the night. As you can imagine, I was not fit for school the next day. … Continue reading Harry Potter Filming Locations in London
