Hey October. You were pretty awesome but you went by real fast. What’s up with that dude? You’re supposed to be my buffer between the craziness of my kid’s birthday and the mad panic to start getting ready for Christmas. Not cool. Let’s take it a bit slower next year thank you. Let’s follow October’s example and go quickly – here’s my October Love List.
Lush’s Halloween Range
Lush’s new Halloween range gave me an excuse to stock up on my favourites. I absolutely adored the Monster’s Eye bath bomb. The water turned a beautiful shade of ocean blue and the smell was so incredibly relaxing that I’m surprised I didn’t just melt away.
Ben & Jerry’s
I just discovered this flavour – it’s probably been out for ages. It tastes like an amazing combination of peanut butter cups and cookies and cream. So freakin delicious. It’s a good thing Ben & Jerry’s is expensive, otherwise I’d be as big as a house.
I am barrelling towards the conclusion of my two month Gilmore Girls catch up binge watch and I am still loving it. I’m on the dreaded season 6 at the moment and I just have to get this out – what is your damage, Anna Nardini? I don’t understand why everyone puts their hate on April and forgets to loathe you. You are the absolute worst and have a permanent spot on my characters never to be forgiven list along with Ramsey Snow, Jim Moriarty and
I love love love my new iPhone 7 Plus. At first I thought the larger size would feel weird in my hand but it actually feels a lot smaller than it is. I love writing on it – its so much easier to see everything on it. I didn’t actually need a new iPhone, but the dual camera feature was too interesting to pass up. The camera is definitely a big leap up from the iPhone 6, particularly in low light.
Gabori Sisters: By The Sea
I love that this museum has an entire floor just for children, and seeing it transformed into a beautiful underwater space is fantastic. We’ve been to this exhibition at GOMA a few times, but it never fails to make me feel instantly relaxed and inspired. A big favourite is the wooden boats set up with everything you need to draw pictures!
Oh my goodness. Benedict Cumberbatch AND Marvel? Sign me up and hold me back. Check out my review here and see why Doctor Strange is definitely worth getting a babysitter for.
I love all things Halloween. Sweets? Check. Dress Ups? Check. Scary Movies? Check and Double Check. I could seriously just move into Halloween Town and stay there forever. My son has a real thing with masks/hats/hoods/anything touching his hair so he went as a Spiderman who has thrown his secret identity to the wind. And hey, has anyone noticed how Spiderman seems to never keep his frickin mask on in the movies anyway?
