The Hallotober Tag

It’s no secret that I love Halloween; in fact, it’s my favourite holiday, seconded only by Christmas. So when I heard that Jordanne had created the Hallotober Tag this year, I crossed my fingers hoping I’d be nominated. What I didn’t expect, however, was to be nominated, not once, not twice, but four(!) times, by some wonderfully talented bloggers. So thank you to Claire of Our Favourite Jar, Katie of Life With Ktkinnes, Emily of That Weird Girl Life and Anne of Rooting Branches, for nominating me. 😊 Make sure you read their answers and check out their amazing blogs.

Ways to Celebrate Halloween at Home

This year Halloween has the potential to be amazing; it falls on a Saturday (which means a whole day of spooky fun), there’s a full moon that evening, in fact, the second one this month (called a blue moon). And, for those of who like astrology, the moon falls in Taurus this month too (which happens to be my starsign!)… So it goes without saying that I’m a little bit excited to be celebrating Halloween at home this year. I’m just hoping the sky is clear enough to see it! 🌚 Moonlit walks aside, I’m also planning to listen to […]

Have you ever? Fandom Edition

Because, to me, my love of fandoms has given me so many wonderful experiences, from meeting my idols at comic conventions, to making life long friendships. So, let’s get started… ‘Have You Ever?’ Tag – Fandom Edition Have you ever made fan art? Yes, I used […]

Why I Love Staycations

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love staycations! Whether that’s being able to explore my home town, taking a road trip through the British countryside, or even having a relaxing week at home. A staycation is the perfect way to spend some time away from the office. And with most places in the UK being relatively close to each other, it’s even easier to get out there and explore. With that in mind, I’d like to share some of the reasons I love staycations with you. In hope that you’ll choose to holiday […]
