Welcome to Jurassic Park

1993 was another momentous year for the summer blockbuster: Every kid who’d had the pleasure of seeing Jurassic Park on the big screen left the theatre absolutely awestruck by the thrill and terror conjured by their beloved Spielberg. After the frenzy of the opening scene, Spielberg masterfully builds the tension thereafter, culminating with a rippling […]

“Two young people fell in love, and we all turned up”

There is little doubt that Meghan and Harry have set the standard for a reformed and more progressive British monarchy with their gorgeously diverse and inclusive wedding ceremony. It was incredible.

The Battle of Endo(r) – A geek’s perspective on life with endometriosis

Since discovering the Star Wars range at Pottery Barn Kids a few years ago, I have aspired to have a Star Wars room of my own.  This only became a possibility for us when we moved from our small apartment to a four bedroom house back in March;  We finally had the extra rooms to have a […]
