If you follow me on Twitter then you’ll know that I’ve been wanting to try doing a Let’s Play video for a while now, and, seeing as the highly acclaimed Undertale was on sale on Steam during the Christmas sales, I thought it would be the perfect excuse to give it a go!
This game came out in 2015, so I’m a fair bit late to the party, but I’ve listened to the soundtrack thousands of times (also there’s a gorgeous album called Prescription for Sleep: Undertale on Spotify that has covers of the music and is perfect for relaxing!). The graphics too are absolutely gorgeous, taking on that pixel art style. I honestly can’t wait to get further into the game and see more of its world!
Be sure to leave me a comment letting me know what you think of this style of video and whether you’d like to see any more!

11 years ago I came to Thailand. I thought that had been my first venture in this wonderful country, but I very recently learned I came when I was 6 weeks old. So, having visited the first time when I was less than a year old and the second when I was 7, it’s fair to say that this visit will be the first I actually remember. And I hope I do, and for a very long time. A travel video will be coming sometime soon but for now here are some snaps I took during the first part of my trip.

Hello there 2018!
I, like many others, am hoping that this year will be the sensational third act of this three-year-long tragicomedy. 2017 was a good year for me; I saw my short film being made into a real tangible thing, I completed my A-Levels with pretty pleasing results, I went to film school, and I moved to London for University! So I can only hope that 2018 is even better. As they say: ‘new year, new me’!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
So the presents have been unwrapped, dinners have been eaten, and the candles are burning low as the Christmas lights twinkle in the strangely empty trees. That means one thing: Christmas day is very nearly over. Me and my family will likely now be arguing over what movie to watch to tie up this lovely, yet long, day. (Hopefully, I’ll get my way and we’ll put our feet up to Rogue One!) It seems that it’s a very common tradition to end this special day with a movie, whether it’s the latest release or a Christmas classic; so I thought it would be fitting to share seven of the most Christmassy scenes in Christmas movies to round it all off – not that I won’t be watching these all year long, yes, even Continue reading
As I mentioned in my last post (which you can watch and read here) I’ve left my Christmas shopping a little bit late – as I’m writing this it’s the 22nd of December and I’m sat on the floor of my local shopping centre, surrounded by busy Christmas shoppers, so I could finish my shopping and get this video uploaded at the same time. So, with a similar thought process, I decided to wrap a couple of presents and answer some Christmas Tag questions to share a little of my Christmas with you.
It’s weird for me to be leaving all these Christmas preparations to the last minute, I’m always the one Continue reading
“I have always thought of Christmastime, when it has come round…as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time”
– A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickins
Christmas Day is a week away and festive feelings are everywhere you look; from Christmas cups of coffee to bright Christmas lights illuminating the early nights. You can especially see it in the frantic last-minute shoppers – like me! But, for those of you who are searching for the perfect present for bookish friends and family members, or are writing a list of books to pick up in the Boxing Day sales, then look no further for my recommendations!

Is it hypocritical that one of my favourite parts of living in London is that it looks like I don’t live in London?
I moved down to London at the end of September to start at university and I had never been more excited – or more nervous – for anything in my life. London has always been my favourite city; the city that, despite cheating on it with Paris, New York, Ottawa and more, I came back to every time with a loving embrace. Continue reading
I like to think of Bonfire Night as a marmite holiday; lots of people love it, will even class it as their favourite British holiday, and lots of people hate it, they don’t see the enjoyment of the brief yet loud display of lights in the night air or really understand what we’re celebrating, to begin with. Although perhaps even those people who do love it don’t even know why either. Personally, I classify myself as a lover of Bonfire Night, although Christmas wins my top spot hands down.
Ever since I was very young, I and my family would attend the Bonfire Night hosted at my school. A family friend would host a party beforehand and so I’d run around with my friends in their garden with sparklers – which were expressly forbidden on the school ground – until it was time to walk down in the dark to the school field.
If you know me you’ll know that I adore London. You’ll also know that I adore films (as well as books and the theatre!). Well, luckily for me I had the opportunity to mix those two adorations together and spent a month down in the fogs of London taking part in a practical filmmaking course run by the MET film school.
Not only was this an incredible time in regards to learning about everything to do with filmmaking, but also it meant I could get to know the city a bit better before I made the move down here for Uni: a feat I have now completed! I met some amazing people on this course too, which helped infinitely, and meant that I didn’t spend every evening stuck in my hotel room rotating between Netflix and YouTube. In fact I actually managed to do quite a lot; I saw a few films, a few plays, and a few landmarks whilst I was at it. And naturally I had to record my August spent in London, so here is the result of that. Enjoy, and be sure to let me know what you think of the video!

“It’s hard to focus on the future when the past is so distracting”
Although I am always reading there are surprisingly few authors whom I follow religiously; stopping my mindless scrolling to check out their latest Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube posts. But, as you might have guessed by now, Lauren James is one of those people. When I was offered her latest book, The Loneliest Girl in the Universe, I snatched it up before you could say “YA SCI-FI”. Once it had slid into my letterbox I began reading it straight away, immediately falling for the main (and almost only) character Romy. I finished the rest of it off on one train journey to London: this is testament to the brilliance of the book since I was suffering from motion sickness but refused to give up and put the book down!
