Hiya readers, how have you been? Is it just me or did this month fly by? I can't believe it is nearly the end of October and I don't even have a costume for next weekend!!! At least I've carved a few pumpkins and my house looks moderately festive. I have a few options for a costume but I still need to put it all together so I have something to wear to work on the actual holiday. I'm glad its the weekend for two major reasons, a. Halloween is only a week away and b. the podcast festival is next weekend!!! Also, this bedroom - life goals, right?! Until then I'll wish you a wonderful weekend full of festivities and treats. Oh yea, one of my favorite families came in and baked me a whole batch of pumpkin spice chocolate chip muffins, they are delicious!!!
I love scary movies. I might need a buddy to watch them with just to comfort me but I can watch a good psychological thriller or horror movie any day. I'll admit I'm a little desensitized just because I would often sneak watching scaring movies when my brother and dad use to watch when I was really little. However these four classic horror films still give me the heebie-jeebies and The Pact which has come out in the last couple years seriously made me jump even while watching it in broad daylight. What are your favorite horror films? Or are you someone you strays away from scary movie?
When it comes to social media, I may have mentioned before I don't really follow friends or celebrities. I mostly follow fellow bloggers, business and retail shops I really like and traveler accounts. In fact most of the people I follow on Instagram and Snapchat are world travelers. These five are my favorite. Links to their individual accounts are down below and in order of the images above :)
Between reading endless articles about the infamous murdering duo Burke and Blake, watching a history special on Scotland and learning about potential travel plans that include working in a bookstore to pay for lodging somewhere in Scotland... I would do it in a heartbeat. Familiarizing myself with Scottish writers and meeting local folk, I would love to tour the countryside and check out the beautiful castle of Edinburgh. Have you been to Scotland? What are you recommendations and suggestions for traveling there?
