Why Stranger Things is the greatest thing ever and how it empowers girls and break stereotypes

Stranger Things was the biggest and greatest surprise last year, and with this new season that was just released, Netflix has done it again. This show has rocked my life for a second time, and guys, this is not something that happens often. The first season, released last year 2016, was an ode to the 80’s and a hymn for nerds and outcasts. But this second time around, I couldn’t help but notice that what was a sidekick during season one, stomped into the room and stole the spotlight: GIRL POWER.

Booktober: 10 bookstagram photos with all the Autumn vibes

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favourite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”Stephen King, Salem’s Lot

And just like that, the most photogenic season fell upon us and left us with the best excuse to embrace nature (dead or alive), sweaters  (fluffy or oversized), hot drinks (pumpkin or cinnamon spiced) and basically, anything cosy and within the orange palette.

Because around here, it’s all about the palette. And all the things mentioned above.

This is Booktober, folks.

Welcome to the ultimate bad-boy discussion.

But I may be having a crisis here. Ah well, you know what? It’s time to get spooky anyway. Yes, click here for the spookiest dance.

The perks of being a Romance lover, an introduction to The Romance Nook section.

Yes. I love Romance. More than that, some days I actually need it. And some other days, I am certain I live for it. I know, I know. You are probably sticking a big, shiny and very likely pink label on my forehead that reads cheesy. But if you’ve been following me a while now, well, you should already know about that fluffy little detail of mine.

So, without further ado, I’d like to inaugurate this new section, The Romance Nook, and while I’m at it, talk about myself and romance – because in case you didn’t know, those go hand in hand… And it’s physically impossible for me not to ramble non stop when I write.
