Self Care, Fall Edition

Fall Self Care Practices

Autumn is coming and I’m already so much in the mood to curl up with blankets wrapped round me,while drinking pumpkin spice lattes and watching all the spooky movies. I live for this season, but I know that’s not the case with everyone. So with the colder darker months coming up, that means less daylight and we spend more time inside.

I have two kids, 12 year old boy and a 20 month old girl. I also work full time, run my blog and Instagram, while doing daily chores and keeping up with everything. Oh while trying to read whenever I can. So handing good self care practices in place for those extra busy days are a blessing.

Self-care shouldn’t be something that you just check off your to-do list for the day. Instead, you should make it a priority so that it’ll become more of a lifestyle. I’m going to share some self care practices to help lighten your mood.


Practice self care every day

1. Develop A Thorough Skincare Routine //

2. Get Outside & Enjoy The Fresh Air //

3. Declutter your home //

4. Baking or trying out a new recipe //

5. Burn your favorite fall scented candle and read a good book //

6. Take a long hot bath //

7. Make a Fall favorites playlist //

8. Start a Bullet Journal //


I truly believe that all of these things are amazing self care practices. And that everyone should take some time during there day to do something just for themselves. Have a great weekend! ✌️

What I’ve Been Watching Lately… 12/07/19

Schitts Creek

I’ve only just started watching this show, and I absolutely love it! This just might be the funniest show I’ve seen in a long time. I don’t usually watch a lot of comedies but this one is really worth your time. It is currently streaming on Netflix.

This show follows the Rose’s, a wealthy, spoiled family that fall onto hard times and has everything they own repossessed. They are forced to move to a small town called Schitts Creek.

Eugene Levy plays with the father John, I’ve always thought he was hilarious and he continues to be in this show. He’s always coming up with ideas to try and get them back on top, that don’t always go to plan. This show features a pansexual main character: David Rose who is played by Eugene Levy’s real life son, Daniel Levy. Who is just as hilarious, he is my favorite character in the whole show. This show just makes me so happy!

Stranger Things – Season 3

I’m going to write a whole season review really soon, so I won’t say to much here. I just finished episode 3 and I’m really loving it so far. My favourites are still Steve,Duston and Nancy 💖

This update is a little short but I really haven’t been watching much. I’m on vacation starting Monday and I’m hoping to watch a few movies and finish stranger things. So be on the lookout for a season review soon. What are some movies and shows you’ve been loving?

Top Summer Horror Movies

Summertime is the season for slashers, sea creatures and camping , so I’ve created a list of my favourite summer horror movies to get me into the seasonal spirit. I get so excited for a new season or holiday, and I love creating content to enhance the sensation! Summer horror films are so much fun to throw on while the sun starts to set and there is a slight chill in the air.

I’ve selected the movies that I enjoy watching the most during the Summer, in absolutely no particular order.

I Know What You Did Last Summer

It’s the 4th of July, 1996 and four high school seniors are celebrating there last summer before college. After some drinks on the beach, Ray is tasked with driving as he is the sober one, Barry gets a little rowdy in the car, distracting Ray who accidentally hits a random stranger on the road.They go down to the nearby docks and dump the body in the water, One year later and now a freshman in college, Julie goes home for the summer, when she starts to revive threatening letters, saying g they know her secret.I love of this movie and the sequels.

Sleepaway Camp

The definition of a great summer horror must involve water, some sort of camping, and blood. Well, Sleepaway Camp has all those things.This movie feels like summer, when Angela is spending the summer at Camp Arawak.I love the drama between the campers, especially once the killings start. This movie is so cheesy and full of horror stereotypes, but that’s what makes this movie so good!

Friday the 13th (2009)

Of course it wouldn’t be a summer horror list without mentioning Friday the 13th. I do love the originals, but this remake is also really fun. Of course we have stereotypical teenagers, out in the woods,drinking to much and partying. When some of them stumble into crystal lake. This movie stars Jared Padaleki who is most know for his role in Supernatural.

Jeepers Creepers

It’s spring break, siblings Trish and Darry, are on a road trip home from college.While driving a truck is riding close behind them. The driver appears to be in a rush and doesn’t care if it runs them off the road. Later on,Trish and Darry see the truck again, its driver is moving what look to them like bodies from his vehicle by an abandoned farm. What I love the most about this movie is the creature known as the Creeper. He is so unique in terms of the monster, and he has a catchy tune that plays when he comes around.

The Shallows

Nancy (Blake Lively) is a college medical student headed toward a beach in Mexico for a vacation. She is looking to find herself, on the Beach her mother once loved. Upon arrival, she heads straight into the waters and surfs for hours but her fun is cut short when she is attacked by a great white shark and is left stranded only a short distance from the shore. I have been a fan of Blake Lively ever since Gossip Girl, plus the visuals in the movie are beautiful!

What I’ve Been Watching Lately

Hi Everyone! I haven’t really been with watching many movies this year. Going to the theater is one of my favorite activities but with a toddler at home it’s hard to get out. The same thing goes for digital releases, it’s so hard to pay attention to a movie. I wanted to share with you everything I’ve been watching lately.

Movies

A Star is Born

This movie was so incredibly beautiful and so so SAD. Lady Gaga is extremely talented, her voice is truly amazing. Bradley Cooper completely amazes me. He directed A Star is Born which was also the first movie that he directed. This movie deals with some hard hitting issues so make sure you check out the content warnings before watching, one of them being alcoholism.

Captain Marvel

This movie was amazing, and an excellent addition to the MCU. Bri Larson is fantastic, I love her with my whole heart and soul! Her acting is exceptional, she really brought the character to life. I loved this movie so much! I’m not going to go into to many details because I have a full review, I have linked it in the title.

Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald

This second installment was a little disappointing. I was hoping it would have been as good as the first one, but the magic was just not there. Of course I loved all the creatures and Newt. But the plot was lacking and I found myself bored at times, don’t get me wrong it was still a good movie but I didn’t love it.

The Perfect Date

This is Netflix newest Original movie, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. This movie stars Noah Centineo, Laura Marano and Camilla Mendes. Noah plays Davis a senior in high school who desperately want to go to Yale, but doesn’t have the fiances. After he gets paid to take a girl (Laura Marano) to a dance at her school, he comes up with an app to go on other dates for pay. This movie was hilarious, I love Noah he’s great as always, he is the perfect cast for Rom-Coms. The real star of the movie though was Laura, she is fantastic and super cute!

TV Shows

Queer Eye Season 3

This show has become one of my all time favorites, I love the positive attitude the guys bring to every situation. I don’t think there has been an episode yet where I haven’t shed a few tears. I love Tan and JVN so much, they have such amazing personalities and I just feel really connected with them. My son Noah who is 12 also loves the show, his favorite being Antoni.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2

Season 2 was a lot darker than its first season, Sabrina is an amazing protagonist with a fierce feminist outlook. She stands up for her fellow witches and fights for opportunities offered to the warlocks. With the help of her friends she might fight the dark lord and the situations they get themselves into. This season had amazing representation, especially with Theo’s story line it was so well done. Also Nick Scratch is freaking amazing and I hope he and Sabrina are endgame!

I have also been watching the new episode’s of Jane the Virgin and absolutely loving them, this show has everything. As of last week Game of thrones has also started, at the end of the season I will have a post about every episode and how I feel about them and the season as a whole, but I’m so freaking excited.


Well that’s all for this post, let me know what movies/Tv Shows you have been loving.
