7 geeky artists you should be following on Instagram

Is there anything better than fan art? You find a thing that you love and consume it and then you find talented people who can draw and bring the characters in your head to life. With TV and movies it’s a bit different because you know what a character looks like but then there are re-imaginings which are just wonderful. Instagram so great for following amazing artists and here are...

Black Panther is the movie Africa’s been waiting for

There’s something that happens when you watch a Marvel movie, you come out of the cinema with a roar in your chest. It feels a little something like this: via GIPHY A couple of weeks ago I saw a tweet saying something like, what if Black Panther doesn’t live up to the hype and I almost replied with “This is not DC movie, don’t come with that nonsense”. Even Marvel’s...

The first Solo: A Star Wars trailer is out and …

I’m not sure how I feel about these prequel Star Wars stories. I didn’t finish Rogue One but I can’t remember if it was because I fell asleep or if one of the kids woke up and I just never bothered to go back. It obviously wasn’t as compelling as it should have been. So I am wary of this new Solo movie. But even though I do have a soft...

Why I didn’t love Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Guys, this is weighing heavily on me because I worship at the alter of JK Rowling (relax Mommy, I’m only joking!) but I did not love Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I mean, I have all the books and movies, the house pins, I’ve been sorted into my House (Hufflepuff and proud!) and I’ve even got the mug to prove it! My awesome Hufflepuff mug that my dearest @zeekalla...

One of the things that make me happiest are books. In school the library was my sanctuary. Book stores were my Happy Place™. I have Collections of books and they’re of my most prized possessions. After my kids and the family folder full of all the important documents, my books are the first thing I’m grabbing. But I seem to be reaching for my books less and opening the Play...
