Rick and Morty Cocktail Bar | Pop-Up Geeks

I visited the Pop Up Geeks again, and this time round they had a Rick and Morty themed cocktail bar! I love Rick and Morty, and when I first met my boyfriend that was one of the first things we talked about – so it was a definite that I was dragging him with me to check it out!

If you haven’t read about my last visit with the Pop Up Geeks, you can read about it here. They were doing a Harry Potter theme called Perilous Potions, and it was amazing! Now, onto Rick and Morty…

Re-potting & Planting New Seeds

Recently I was in Flying Tiger and noticed some really cute vases / plant pots, and wanted to have a little collection of plants and herbs by my window, so I bought them, a plant, and some seeds and thought I’d write a blog post about it.

There were so many cute pots in the shop. I picked up a few coloured pots, and a pink flower vase, too. I also picked up a plain white one in the shape of a camera. They have a few different object shaped vases and pots, and I’m sure I’m going to go back and pick up some more so I can grow my herb collection!

Bullet Journal Set-Up | June

Last month I didn’t get around to writing in my bullet journal, or posting a spread on here as I was in the middle of my exams and just didn’t have the time. But this month I’ve managed to get it organised in advance!

Like before, I am not very artistic and I’m still trying to find my style so every month is pretty simple, but different. Hopefully you still like reading these kinds of blog posts from me, as I really enjoy doing them!

So far, I have only written down a spread for the 1st week on June. As I’ve mentioned before I also use my journal as a diary to write down my thoughts and feelings. So, to try keep the happenings of each week together, I organise my bullet journal week by week.

May Birchbox

I’ve wanted to try out a make-up subscription for awhile now, and decided on Birchbox as I see it a lot on other blogs. This is my first month so I’m not 100% sure what my thoughts are on the subscription as a whole, but I’m happy with this month’s box, and the print on the physical box is super cute, too.

Birchbox M 1

I was able to pick one item in my box, or rather the colour of the item, which I thought was cool. I would rather you got to pick the item itself, but it’s still nice having an option of some kind. Especially since mine was lipstick, and it would be fairly pointless to pay for a subscription and get a make-up item in a colour that you don’t like or that doesn’t suit you.

Moving on, let’s see what else I got in the box!

Arm-Knitting A Chunky Blanket

A while ago I bought a huge 4kg ball of wool with the aim to arm-knit myself one of those chunky blankets I’ve seen all over the internet for a few years now, and because of exams it sat in the corner for weeks. But now that Uni is over for the semester, I finally got around to knitting it the other night!

The wool was a bit pricey at £60 for 4kg, but still one of the cheaper, good quality options I could find in the UK. Plus, it was an amount I was willing to spend to have the experience of making my own blanket. I bought mine from Woolly Mahoosive and opted for their acrylic “Mammoth” yarn in Amber, as the acrylic yarn was the cheaper option – however, it still feels lovely and soft. The company also included recommended instructions for making a blanket out of the wool, which was very helpful as I wasn’t quite sure where to start.
