Happy almost Halloween! I’m back with another spooky review, this one of a TV show on Netflix: “The Haunting of Bly Manor”. Since I can’t seem to actively write a review for a TV show or movie without spoilers here’s your warning: spoilers for the entire season of “The Haunting […]
It’s not a secret that I’ve loved The Bold Type since it’s first few episodes released. For me, it came out at a time that I had gotten my first leadership role in a campus publication and has been a huge inspiration to me as a writer, person in media, […]
Every year I do a pride post decked out in rainbow for the beginning of Pride Month. It’s one of my favorite posts to do all year, but such a carefree post doesn’t feel right this year. In the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the rise of protests against […]
The series has been acclaimed for its diversity in cast and characters. Featuring queer witches in a military environment, it has a unique perspective on love, friends, power, womanhood, and the meaning of family.
Adele posted this beautiful message for first responders and essential workers on her birthday and the world ignored that very important and kind message and made it about her body.
Last week Taylor Swift dropped her newest project, “Miss Americana,” on Netflix. The 1-hour 25-minute film is a documentary on the last few years of her life and career and there’s a lot to unpack. It’s bold, unapologetic, and honest in a way that hit home harder than I expected […]
Note: This post was edited on 4/23/20 for pronoun changes as Alexis Frost came out as MTF transgender. The Oscar Nominations came out a few weeks ago and man they were polarizing. Now, I have my own opinions, but I also have a movie buff best friend. My friend Alexis […]
Hi Dreamers! So today is going to be a tough post and I encourage anyone who is triggered by eating disorder talk or body image talk to stop reading now. I won’t be offended, I’ve been there and I’m here for you if you would like to reach out. I […]
Hi Dreamers! It’s graduation season and with that comes yearbook superlatives! So in true book blogger fashion and in honor of my sister’s high school graduation this Thursday and Josie’s sister’s high school graduation last week I’m doing the Book Superlatives Book Tag! This tag was created by Chelsea on […]
Father Mine Let’s talk about the short story Father Mine, first. Okay… squeeee! This short story revolves around Bella giving birth and Z’s relationship with their daughter, Nalla, just… I’m a sucker for babies. I’m also a sucker for Zsadist, he and Rhage are my absolute favorite characters! Also, big […]
Hi Dreamers! Today I’m doing my first Down the TBR Rabbit Hole post! I think this might be more helpful and entertaining than my previous TBR posts. I’ll still be doing those, too and switching it out with these ones mid-month. So it will be a surprise which one I […]
I was scrolling through the Goodreads 2019 releases lists and found some really awesome books that I cannot wait to pre-order! I took six books that looked the most interesting to me and put them in a neat little post for you all!
Today, since I’ve talked about historical Christmas, my own traditions, and my Yule traditions, I thought I’d take a day to tell you all what this all means to me. Why is Christmas special to me? I’ve been thinking about it a lot this year being in a new place and having new traditions, both from my future in-laws and ones that Josie and I created together. I felt more Christmas spirit this past year than I have in a while and I think that’s because I’ve really taken a moment to ask myself which traditions mean more to me and which can change.
This year for Christmas, unfortunately, I want a lot of things that you can’t bring me. Since I’ve moved to Wisconsin I’ve found I enjoy experience and memories a lot more than material items, but I’m going to list my Christmas wishes anyway in hopes that they will come true.
I’ve wanted to do this post for a while and it’s been sitting in my backlogs. I figured blogmas was the perfect time to do this (if nothing else than I’m running out of Christmas themed ideas). And I thought it would be interesting to do this topic because most of the time I’m pretty neutral about it. I have some pros and cons to each format which I’ll outline and I lean towards one (that you will have to read to the end to find out), but most of the time it’s whatever works.
A few days ago I did my favorite Christmas themed books, but what we really look forward to during the holidays are Christmas movies. From the classics to the cheesy Hallmark movies it’s something that a lot of families look forward to every year and sometimes it’s even a very important tradition. So here are my top 10 Christmas movies (in order).
Yesterday I talked about the new characters in the season premiere of season 11 of Doctor Who. Today, I’m talking about plot, because this is a writing (and books and lifestyle) blog, so I’m breaking down the writing choices made in this episode.
On October 7th fans of Doctor Who LOST THEIR MINDS when Jodie Whittaker took to the screen as the 13th Doctor. When she was announced to be the first female incarnation of the beloved character there were VERY mixed reactions; however, she seems to have won most fans hearts over with her quirky mannerisms and general talent. And while I agree with most fans reactions of her, I have some reservations about some other things from the season premiere.
