5 Fandom Friday - Fandoms I'm thankful for

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Buffy is easily the fandom I am most thankful for because it saved my life. Many times over. That isn’t me being dramatic. My teenage years were difficult, I was bullied a lot, and started suffering from depression without even realising. It was a dark time, and the many lessons of Buffy not only got me through it but helped me be stronger.

5 Apps I can't live without

I prefer milk and dark, but do occasionally dabble in white too!   Hearty Food I love hearty food like casseroles and stews, soRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Halloween movies

  When I first saw this prompt I initially chose the other one (Halloween tv episodes) then switched to this and eventually ended up with too many to choose from! So here are my 5 must see Halloween movies. I’ve interpreted ‘Halloween movies’ as movies to watch on Halloween rather than one’s set/based on Halloween as that list, for me, is tiny. Hocus Pocus Hocus Pocus is funny, it’s witty, and it’s just a bit scary and freaky without making it too much of a scare fest. I love the characters and their relationships, as well as the historic and lore elements surrounding the threeRead More →
