Sex Education: From Bridgerton To Now

Bridgerton is possibly the most talked-about show of 2021, and let’s face it one of the contributing factors to that is the sex scenes. The sex scenes in question are revolutionary for period dramas as there is a much greater focus on female pleasure. Particularly with the sexual awakening of Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor). However, it was seeing Daphne’s lack of sex education that got me thinking. It is understood now why women knew nothing about sex in the 1800s, but Bridgerton exposes so many problems with the sex education now. Read More

My Dream Cast: Six The Musical

How many times have you seen a show and had a brainwave about who you would cast, if you ever got the chance? I know that I have a lot. I was fortunate to see Six twice, once with the original London cast, and once with the original tour cast: both sets of performers were incredible! Still, […]Read More

Theatre Review: Rent // Hope Mill Theatre

I should tell you that I’m completely obsessed with Rent… I bought tickets to see Rent at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester on a whim. In all honesty, I just wanted to be in a theatre again. I was gutted for the cast, theatre and myself when the production was forced to close to […]Read More

‘Derry Girls’ Teaches Us More About Ireland Than School Did

Derry Girls has been on my watch list for months! I finally got round to watching it, and to be quite honest I can’t stop. It is my new obsession. Created by Lisa McGee, Derry Girls follows Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell), Orla (Louisa Harland), Clare (Nicola Coughlan), and James (Dylan Llewellyn) as they grow up in Derry during the 90s. Packed full of comedy, great music and touching family moments, Derry Girls has made me think about how much (or how little) I know about the Irish Troubles. Read More

Book Review: Cinderella is Dead // Kalynn Bayron

I picked up Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron as a holiday read. I grew up obsessing over Disney and Cinderella was one of the first films I watched. So a book which retold that story drew me in instantly. I ended up reading it in a day, I simply couldn’t (and didn’t want to) put it down! I’ll never look at classic Cinderella in the same way again. Read More

The Declaration – A Forgotten Series

Like most people I’ve bought a lot of new books in recent months. However, instead of reading any of my new purchases I have taken a trip down book memory lane. I spent a week revisiting one of my favourite series The Declaration trilogy by Gemma Malley. Reading it got me thinking about the young adult Dystopian era (I’m classing it from about 2009-2014). There are four months between the publication of The Declaration and the publication of The Hunger Games. One of these trilogies was significantly more successful than the other. I am obviously talking about The Read More
