Theatre Review: American Idiot, 10th Anniversary UK Tour, Edinburgh Playhouse.* [AD | Gifted]

*Tickets to this show were gifted to me in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own. All photography is copyright of American Idiot UK.

I can't remember a time before Green Day were in my consciousness. Having siblings who were 10 and 12 years older than me meant that when their worldwide smash third album, Dookie, came out in 1994, I was quickly familiarised with it. Probably more so than any four year old should be, but that's a different issue. In my own teenage years, Green Day still felt relevant and I still love their music to this day. Therefore, being invited to watch the opening night of the UK touring production of American Idiot at the Edinburgh Playhouse was an offer I could not refuse.

Authentic Italian Cuisine at the Italian Grill, Dundee.* [AD | Gifted]

*I was gifted a meal for two in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own and 100% honest.

I love Italy. I have visited a handful of times and I just love everything about it - the culture, the weather (!), the buildings, the people, and most importantly the food. Italian food is incredible, and I seriously consider moving there just for the cuisine on a regular basis. Luckily for me, the Italian Grill has brought a piece of Italy to Scotland, in the form of their contemporary, friendly restaurant and the authentic Italian cuisine it serves!

Getting Started On My Fitness Journey With Nina Elise Workouts [AD | Gifted].*

*I was sent this workout guide in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own.

I'm kind of nervous to even broach this topic. I already know that posting about fitness and health online, especially as a fat woman, is controversial. There will be people telling me that it's not 'body positive' to want to change yourself, that I am falling victim to diet culture, and that I am not only letting myself down but I am in fact actively part of the problem of fat shaming.

Edinburgh's Hidden Gems: Three Neighbourhoods You Need To Visit.*

*This is a collaborative post. The spending money was gifted by, but all views are my own.

I've lived in Edinburgh my whole life, and yet I never stop discovering new things to love about it. I'm completely biased, but it is my favourite city in the world and I just love showing it off to new people. One of my favourite things about the city is how different areas have distinctive personalities and with so many hotels in Edinburgh to choose from, you're bound to find a corner of the city that will win your heart. With that in mind, I thought I'd share some of my favourite neighbourhoods for you to check out next time you're in Auld Reekie!

Twenty Something Meltdown's 15 Questions to Ask Yourself.

One of my favourite bloggers in the whole world, Gwennan, recently published a brilliant post detailing fifteen questions to ask yourself in the New Year. The premise is you answer the questions as honestly and as detailed as you can, and then at the end of the year you revisit them and see how your answers have changed. Seeing as I loved the idea (basically anything Gwennan posts is genius) I thought I'd give it a go - so here are my answers to her fifteen questions to ask yourself in the New Year.
