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…

April: The Debrief

We’re a quarter of the way through 2022 now – Spring has sprung, festivals have started, Easter eggs have been eaten and I’ve been on my first holiday of the year! It’s actually been a really busy month now that I think about it…

Let’s have a catch up and I’ll tell you aaaall about it in April’s debrief.

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…

January: The Debrief

I hate to be THAT person but seriously, where did January go?! I can’t quite believe we’re one whole month into 2022 already.

I said I wanted to get back into my blogging this year and so at the end of each month I’m going to do a little debrief of what’s been happening in my life – what I’ve been watching/where I’ve been going. That kind of thing!

January has actually been quite a busy month with highs, and lows. I suffer with anxiety and that has been quite bad the past few weeks but I’m getting there and trying new things to help with that…which kind of leads me on to what I’ve been up to!

First up…

AUTUMN BUCKET LIST!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Autumn is my favourite season! I’m so happy it’s that time of year once again- the leaves are changing colour, the nights are getting darker and it’s time to wrap up in aaaaall of the knitwear!

To celebrate this wonderful season, I’ve come up with a little Autumn to-do list for the next couple of months.
