What I love about the Halloween Season

October 20, 2018

 

When I was a kid my parents decorated the house for many of the holidays. Easter had some Egg and bunny decals and plastic wall pieces. Valentine's Day had some heart decorations. Halloween and Christmas, on the other hand, went all out. For Halloween, we had rubber bats that hung from doorways. Wall decorations everywhere. There were peelable glass decals that went on the windows and on the fish tanks. The candle lights we always had in out window got changed for Halloween ones. We had classic jack 'o' lantern trick-or-treat buckets everywhere in an array of colours. We had fake spiders and webs.


My A-Z of Halloween

October 17, 2018




This year I have been loving these A-Z posts. It's so fun to come up with something for every letter. Having a Halloween theme and really got me into the spooky spirit! I love Halloween and this style post is perfect to get me excited for the season! Here's my A-Z of Halloween!


The Halloween Tag 2

October 14, 2018


"This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Pumpkins scream in the dead of night!" That song has been on a constant loop in my brain since September 1st. Halloween is right on par with Christmas for my favourite time of the year. I did a Halloween Tag a couple years ago and I thought it'd be fun to do another one. These kinds of posts get me so excited for the season!


Maybelline Lemonade Craze Palette | First Impressions

October 11, 2018


I kind of fell in love with this palette when I saw it on Maybelline's twitter. The swatches were amazing! The pop of red and the rose gold were so amazing! They shared the photos like 2 months before the launch and I'm not going to lie I kind of forgot about it until I saw it on display at the store about a month ago. Then I remembered the swatches and was excited all over again!


Homestyle One-Pot Spicy Chili Recipe | Gluten-Free + Dairy Free + Easily Made Vegan

October 8, 2018


Something about this time of year makes me crave warm and cosy things. Fuzzy blankets, hot cups of tea and hot cocoa, warm bowls of food. I've never been much of a soup person but I love chili. I love how warm it makes me feel. The spiciness of the chili powder and cumin. It's the perfect dish for the fall and winter time!


My Struggles with Body Image | Mental Health + Me

September 10, 2018


This might be the hardest mental health and me post I've written this far. A big part of my depression as a teen was linked to my body image. I've had issues with being overweight since I was 4. I'm deathly allergic to cough syrup and the steroids the doctors gave me permanently messed up my metabolism. Before that I had issues gaining weight so I was on a high protein diet when everything happened. So when my metabolism stopped working I was still trying to gain weight and gained too much. I've been fighting it ever since.


Dying my Hair Unnatural Colours for the First Time | Cutting & Dying my hair on my own | Purple + Blue Hair Dye Adventures

September 4, 2018



 I love watching Jenna Marbles "fuck herself up" on a weekly basis on her channel. I too have an urge to change my appearance frequently. When I was 13-15 I dyed my hair 13 times in 18 months. I had all the natural colours. Black, brown, bleach blonde, Auburn. But never anything unnatural more than pink highlights a bit darker than cotton candy.

Diary Entry 2

August 16, 2018


Hello Everyone! It feels like ages since I wrote my First Diary Entry. It's only been like 2 months but I've been so run down lately that it feels like ages between blog posts. After last month's Harry Potter marathon I feel a lot better. So I thought now on my re-entry into "normal" posts it would be fun to do another diary entry. Just talk out my recent thoughts and feelings. So let's just jump into it.

Harry Potter | The Boy Who was Forgotten

July 31, 2018


In honour of Harry’s Birthday today I thought it’s time I do a character focus on the Chosen One. So where to begin. I have lots of feeling but let’s start off with the reason this title is “The Boy Who Was Forgotten”


The Wonderful World of Magical Creatures in Harry Potter

July 24, 2018


My favourite thing about Harry Potter is by far the magical creatures. From unicorns to mermaids to dragons I love mythical creatures. Pixies and fairies and centaurs. I love all the creatures that JK included in the world of Harry Potter. So today I thought it would be fun to talk about some of my favourites!


Hogwarts House Pride

July 18, 2018


It seems like everyone has an option on what houses are better than others. Which houses have better qualities, which houses would be the worst to be in. Well, today I want to spread some House Positivity.


Jim Dale is amazing! | You need to get the Harry Potter Audiobooks

July 13, 2018


I've never really been an audiobook person. I love the feel of a real book. Feeling the pages turn in my hand. The smell of the paper. The feeling and the sound of the binding stretching in my hands as I turn the pages. I love books. But I've had little time to read recently. And I've been dying to re-read Harry Potter. So I caved and signed up for audible and got 2 free books. 


Underrated Harry Potter Characters

July 7, 2018


There are characters in every story that get overlooked or aren't showed all the love they deserve. And Harry Potter is no exception. I'm also a big believer that there are some characters that get too much love but I'll save that for another post. That one might get shouty. Anyway today I wanted to give some love to these characters who I care about and the fandom seems to push aside.
