Did you just say… The Botanist? In Coventry?

Did you just say… The Botanist? In Coventry?

"I should do this more often," I think to myself as I chug down a rum and coke, it's warmth adding a pinch of red to my cheeks as I felt the alcohol sink into my bloodstream. Whelp, here comes Lightweight Lizzie again, but this time I didn't care. I ...

Christmas Gyaru Meet with QueenE!

Christmas Gyaru Meet with QueenE!

Christmas started as soon as we stepped out in the streets of Nottingham, head-to-toe in our Santa gear as we headed towards the Christmas market. By "we" I mean myself and QueenE gyarusa/gyaru circle members, and we looked fabulous! We didn't have to walk for long and within moments we ...

Embracing My Weakness in Photography

Embracing My Weakness in Photography

I had no idea what I was doing. There I was, standing in a room filled with other bloggers at the Viking Picture Perfect event as Elouisa presented us her photography masterclass. I had my camera in my hands and I was trying to figure out what on earth an 'F-stop' ...

What I’ve Learnt from My First Blogger Event

What I’ve Learnt from My First Blogger Event

Yes, your girl Lizzie here went to her first ever blogger event. It's not like it's taken me over 7 years since I've started to do blogging, but let's not think about that. I finally managed to tick off one of my main blogging goals and I'm so happy about ...

Hogwarts in the Snow & 5 Reasons Why I Love Harry Potter

Hogwarts in the Snow & 5 Reasons Why I Love Harry Potter

I did the thing - I ticked off a major item off my bucket list by going to Warner Bros Studios Tour during the Hogwarts in the Snow period for Christmas. And boy could I tell you just how exciting it was! I had been planning this moment for months ...

Down the Rabbit Hole: Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at Kona

Down the Rabbit Hole: Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at Kona

"Cup of tea, anyone?" is perhaps one of the most stereotypically British things we say and I felt oh-so-stereotypical when I found myself on the train to London for afternoon tea with my gal pals Chewiee and Maz. It wasn't just any afternoon tea, though, but Alice in Wonderland themed ...

Mother of Cats and Inspirational Slumps

Mother of Cats and Inspirational Slumps

My idea of heaven would be to drink hot chocolate in a comfy sofa, surrounded by cats. Luckily heaven is a place on earth - the cat café in Nottingham was just under a couple of hours away, and it was the perfect spot for our next QueenE gyaru meet ...

The Secret’s Out… The Canal House

The Secret’s Out… The Canal House

I've "levelled up" in my blogging career in the sense that I attended my first launch event with my DSLR in hand, like the true blogger that I am. I was so nervous; what if people didn't like it that I took pictures with them in it? What if they ...

Hyper Japan Summer 2017

Hyper Japan Summer 2017

So, Hyper Japan was amazing as per (even if the venue was a total maze). I got to see all of my friends, spend money that I should be saving, and took part in the fashion show... I couldn't have asked for more! It took me ages to go to ...

Ravenclaw Rebel at the House of MinaLima

Ravenclaw Rebel at the House of MinaLima

Yup, I dressed up as a Ravenclaw again, but could you really blame me for doing so on the day that my friends and I went on a trip to the House of MinaLima? Where they've filled in every nook and cranny of a super old house with everything graphic ...
