Thirty Before Thirty!

I turned 29 at the beginning of this month and quite literally dived into the final year of my twenties at my birthday party by tripping over in killer platform boots and concussing myself on the patio door. It’s good to see that even though I’m getting older, I’m still an absolute divvy.

Anyway, since then I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the fact that I’m even closer to turning the big three-zero. It feels like such a milestone – and feels like I’m about to become a REAL adult! I’ve already got so much to look forward to in the final year of my twenties (you know, like getting married!!!), but I’ve decided to do a little bucket list as well to keep me busy.

May: The Debrief

I know I’m a little late with May’s debrief but let me tell you it has been a hectic few weeks! I can’t quite believe that we’re basically halfway through the year now, it’s actually terrifying how fast time is flying!

Anyway, let’s have a catch up and I’ll tell you all about the month of May…

MEW: A Night At The Wresting (AD)

If you’ve followed my blog or Instagram for a while, you’ll probably know that I knew absolutely NOTHING about wrestling up until a few years ago when I met Adam. He was into wrestling so obviously, trying to be a good girlfriend, I showed an interest. Little did I know it would end up being something I love!

I’ve been to my fair share of shows over the past few years now, both WWE and independent promotions, so when Main Event Wrestling (MEW) in Newcastle invited me along to their latest show I jumped at the chance.

GORILLA BAR AND BOWLING (AD)

When I was a teen my Friday nights consisted of heading down to the Dunes in Shields with the girls and spending hours playing game after game of bowling and drinking one two many J20’s! Fast forward 10+ years and bowling is still one of my favourite activities to do whether it’s with a big group of friends or for a date night. That’s why I was over the moon to be invited down to Newcastle’s brand new bowling spot, Gorilla!

Ones to Watch at Stockton Calling! (AD)

Festival season is well within reach and for me it all starts THIS weekend with the return of Stockton Calling!

I’m getting so excited for the daylong festival that I’ve had the SC playlist on repeat these last couple of weeks getting myself hyped for it. It’s been so nice to as well to discover new artists that I’ve never heard in readiness for the festival too. There are over 80 artists performing across 11 venues throughout the day and, although it would be awesome to, sadly you can’t see everyone. I’ll definitely be getting the steps in on Saturday as I run about town trying to catch as many people as I can though!

With that in mind, here’s a list of who I would like to see at the festival.

DOPPIO MALTO – METROCENTRE (AD)

I took a little trip to Italy earlier this week when I headed along to the Metrocentre to visit the latest addition to their food quarter – Doppio Malto!

Known for its motto ‘un posto felice’ – a happy place – Doppio Malto offers a beautiful, vibrant setting with vivid coloured walls filled with art, cosy botanical corners and bright lights all around. A smile graced my face the moment I arrived, and I can tell you now it stayed there til I left.

I was invited along for an exclusive evening of beer tasting and menu sampling and let me tell you, I was not prepared for what went down…
