    Review: Burgers & More | Harrogate #JustAThought

    I’m asking you to go back a while now, I know, but if you read my blog posts on the regular, then you may have seen that myself and Ginger went Llama Walking in Harrogate for my birthday. (If you haven’t already read the most awesome day of my life then just click here). We stayed over in Harrogate and so going out for food was essential for survival!   As it was my birthday, it was down to Ginger to choose where we went for food. As we visit different places often, we do try and find local places to try that we can’t find anywhere else. Just makes…

    In A Jar House | Original Poem By Sophie Lloyd

    Welcome to my first original piece. It is terrifying putting your work out there but I do hope you enjoy. I am aware that there are a few slanted rhymes but it is still a working process. Any suggestions are welcome. I know this is a long one but stick at it, it’s worth it! Well, I think so but I am biased. Hope you enjoy!   Within their home, in a jar house high up on the shelves lived a happy couple content within themselves.   Loving where they were with every jar a friend the community was thriving with jar homes from end to end.   Warren the…

    My New Job | I Got The Job I Wanted

    Yippee! This is definitely a yippee moment! For anyone who knows me or has followed my blog at all, you will know that I work at a local paper currently as a Production Assistant. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do like my job and I work with awesome people, but sometimes it is the time to move on. It is definitely the people you work with who make your job what it is. I couldn’t have asked for a better boss and everyone in the office is lovely. However, mainly due to myself and Ginger wanting our own place, and also wanting to start a career to last me…

    BLOG UPDATE | New Category Coming Soon!

    I like to think of myself as a writer. ‘Think’ being the main word in that. I am not a writer but I suppose it is what I aspire to be. I have always done best in English classes and this is the main reason I chose to study English Language at the University of Huddersfield. Alongside, I chose a Creative Writing course as well. The writer in me. All my life, all I wanted was to be the next Darren Shan (you can read all my love about his books here) and so I have like a million starts to books or half-written ones lying around. My main problem…

    Garnier Skin Active Pure Charcoal Black Tissue Mask

    I have bad skin. In fact, I have awful skin. My skin type? Oily, definitely. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Im not dripping in oil. You couldn’t fry something on my face but there is a sheen. My face is shiny. Now, I have tried a lot of products to reduce the shine and yes, some of them have worked. I will enlighten you all with my tricks and tips as time comes along but for now, let’s discuss a new face mask I decided to try and what the consequences were.    This is a tissue face mask by Garnier. I had never heard of these masks until…

    York Unleashed Comic Con | August 2018

    I don’t know if you’re aware or not, but it was mine and Ginger’s first anniversary this weekend. I know right, I don’t think I’ve mentioned it? No, I joke. I get that I may be going on and on about it but can you blame me when I’m this happy? I promise this is the last post abut it, though. I wanted to get out there my thoughts on my second ever Comic Con event.   So here we go…   Now, I have only ever been to one other Comic Con (which you can read about here) and to everyones surprise, including me, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It…

    Flamingo Land, Malton | August 2018

    If you have read my previous post to this one, then you will know that over the weekend I celebrated mine and Ginger’s one year anniversary. We love visiting new places and exploring new things to do and our anniversary was a reason to do something different. I gave Ginger the responsibility of deciding our plans for the Saturday and I’m so glad that I did. He definitely picked a good one. I think by the title of the post you can tell where we went.   Flamingo Land!!!   We have both been to Flamingo Land before but it has been a while for both of us. We both…

    Our One Year Anniversary

    As I sit here typing this, I sit with a smile on my face knowing that I have had the greatest three day weekend with my best friend and my favourite person on the planet. My Ginger. A three day weekend of celebrating making a year together and celebrating our future years to come. They say the first year of a relationship is the hardest and if you can get through it then you can get through a further ten! Here’s to many more amazing years with my Ginger.   On the 10th August last year, Ginger and I sat in Bella Italia for our first date and we haven’t looked…

    Hubble Contact Lenses | Are They As Good As They Claim?

    One thing that I would change about myself is my eyes. Now, don’t get my wrong, I love my eyes themselves, I think they are the best feature of my face. However, what is behind the eyes is the issue. My eyesight is terrible. Without glasses, I cannot see anything really and every day is like living in a bubble of blur. Imagine living in a pint glass, the world around you a blurred sheen. That’s my life without glasses. It has been since I was in Primary School.   I hate, no DESPISE, wearing glasses.   I’m not sure whether you have noticed or not. There are not many…

      THIS IS THE BEST PRESENT ANYONE HAS EVER BOUGHT ME, EVER!   And who bought me this amazing and awesome present you may ask? Well, do you really need to ask? Ginger of course. My incredible boyfriend bought me a star, a literal in the sky big ball of gas kind of star. Genuine. How awesome is that? Just to think that there is a star up there in the sky named after me. Me. Sophie!   The most unique and personal gift ever.   I mean I am aware that stars are all dead. Well, not all I don’t think but the majority of them are, right? I’m…
