#LoveYourBacklog Week 2019!

I’ve been trying to do a backlog post and work on my video game backlog for a while now, so when I saw Michelle at A Geek Girl’s Guide post her #LoveYourBacklog post I knew I had to join in! What is #LoveYourBacklog Week?

Geeking by in December & January

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since there was Geeking By update and eagle-eyed readers may notice that there’s a month missing; November.

10 Things on my Birthday Wish List (2018)

It’s my birthday in a week (9th October!) and for once I’ve actually remembered to do a birthday related post! I decided to start out simple and give you guys a glimpse of what is on my birthday wish list. Being an October baby I pretty much spend most of the year planning for my birthday and Christmas, and then rinse and repeat again the next year. Our anniversary is also in October so I can’t even use that as an excuse for some goodies either! It does mean that by the time October rolls around I have a solid idea of what I wantRead More →
