One of my New Year’s resolutions, and probably the only one I am going to try the hardest to commit to, is updating the blog more. Like, regularly. I know right? Shocker. As you are well aware of, I have neglected the blog during the last weeks. Okay, okay. A month and a half MAYBE. But moving on, new year, new dreams. And in this case, it’s time to shovel and make up for the time lost. And what’s better than closing the 2017 chapter of our lives with a Best and Worst?
Hey guys! Today I’ve teamed up with the absolutely wonderful The Bibliotheque to bring you my top 5 romance reads for winter. It’s getting cold where my friends are over the other side of the world, which means it’s almost time to say goodbye to the beaches and piná-coladas and say hello to sweat-pants and a wine in front of the fire. But never fear! I’m here to help you with an accessory you cannot live without in the colder months….
A good book.
So sit back, charge up those kindles and find your favourite woollen blanket because you won’t be going anywhere all season.
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.
SPOILERS AHEAD! Read at your own risk!
“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. That’s why I’d like to welcome you to my little homage to Booktober, the best month to make book puns and come up with excuses to pick up leaves from the street or get these teeny tiny pumpkins no one actually eats.
This is Booktober, folks.
Who doesn’t like bad boys?
Now, be honest. Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Even if you’d like to deny it, bad boys have this something special that compels us to love them. As for the reasons why, that’s when this discussion comes into play. Why are bad boys so lovable? Why do we end up being a puddle of drool when we read about them?
Welcome to the ultimate bad-boy discussion.
