    District 14 Hull Comic Con | August 2018

    I know what you’re thinking. Two Comic Cons in a month, you really are obsessed. We are maybe getting there but I don’t think we have quite earnt the title yet. When I was not interested in Comic Cons, I did not realise how many there were in a year, and that is just in Yorkshire. There are loads. Which we don’t mind, really, due to us enjoying them.   The main reason we decided to visit this Comic Con, apart from Ginger’s and my brother’s obsession with Star Wars, was that it was free. Yes, you heard me, FREE. Now there is an incentive to check out anything. Everyone…

    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…

    Buy Someone A Star

      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…

    My First Comic Con | June 2018

    That’s right, I have never been to a Comic Con. I have heard so much about them, I have just never had anyone to go with really. Well, now I have my Ginger. A Ginger who is obsessed with Star Wars.   I mean OBSESSED.    So, obviously, as soon as we heard about a Comic Con coming to Scunthorpe, he had to go. I was more than willing to take him as I was intrigued by the entire thing myself. Hosted on the 17th June 2018, we planned our day and aimed to arrive at around 11am so we weren’t the first ones to arrive. Seeing as my brother has…

    I Made A Star Wars Cake

    So in May, it was Ginger’s birthday and that only means one thing – Star Wars! I knew I wanted to make Ginger a cake because he had mentioned that he had never had a cake made for him before. I’m not the best baker in the world but I will say that I am okay. However, I will admit that I am pretty impressed with myself and very proud of what I achieved and the outcome. I found the design of the cake that I wanted to attempt and saved down all of the images of the cake I could find. This design was created by ‘Star Cakes‘ and…
