Horror Movie Tag

I love a good horror movie! It’s my favourite movie genre and has been since I saw Gremlins in the early 90s; not that I found it that horrific. Gizmo is cute and the other Gremlins had me laughing out loud. Please tell me I’m not the only one? Since then my love of horror has grown and I have a growing collection of DVDs and some Blu Rays. The gem of my collection is my Hellraiser trilogy box set signed by Pinhead actor Doug Bradley. I met him at Collectormaina London along with Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) in 2011. Read More…

Autumn tag

The Autumn Tag The rules are simple: answer the questions, tag others to continue the tag, provide the questions for them, and thank the Read More…

Halloween tag

Happy Halloween! Tonight I’m celebrating by doing the Halloween tag while donning some Ghostbusters pyjama bottoms and watching some Halloween themed films with my family (and likely some horror films too). I’m hoping we’ll see some trick or treaters as well. If you didn’t know by now Halloween is my favourite holiday, seconded by Christmas. When we were little my sister and I went trick or treating around our village with the other children there and a few chaperones. I think that’s where my love of Halloween and fancy dress began; my parents got very into it, carving pumpkins, decorating Read More…

Halloween decorations for every budget

Halloween is on its way! 🎃💛 Which, if you didn’t know already, is my favourite holiday. I love when the shops start putting their Halloween ranges out! Even more so if they do it before putting out their Christmas ranges. 😉 Haha. We always decorate the house for Halloween, ever since my sister and I were children. We had both indoor and outdoor decorations, a carved pumpkin (of course) and I’ve kept up the tradition since moving out 5 years ago. Here are a few of the Halloween items I’ve found that I’m loving this year. I’ve tried to include Read More…

Autumn to do list

“Of autumn’s wine, now drink your fill; the frost’s on the pumpkin, and snow’s on the hill.” –The Old Farmer’s Almanac, 1993 It’s the first day of Autumn! Finally! I love this time of year, the leaves changing colour, the fashion – knitwear and scarves, warm drinks and making soup, Halloween and Bonfire Night, it’s definitely my favourite season. I’m currently curled up on the sofa with a fruit tea and watching Teen Wolf on Netflix (I’m on season 2). I’ve spoken about my love of Autumn before but this year I wanted to share what I want to do Read More…
