Friday’s 10 Happy Things No. 5

  1. Comfort books: After reading 2 ARC’s for work, I felt a reading slump approaching. So, I reached for Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and managed to curb said reading slump.

  3. My renewed love for Boba Tea. I’ve missed you friend.

  5. Movies: Especially, costume dramas. I’ve been watching Belle and the new adaptation of Far From The Madding Crowd over and over again.
  6. Naps in the afternoon.
  7. Inner Peas from Trader Joe’s, it’s a healthier alternative to potato chips.
  8. Speaking of potato chips. Lay’s has Biscuit & Gravy potato chips and it’s the shiz.
  9. Catching up on Youtube videos on my day’s off.
  10. Reading Lin-Manuel Miranda’s twitter

I’m still alive!

It’s been a while since I last posted on my blog. But, life and work has gotten in the way. On my days off, I am either too tired to write or I am doing chores, etc. I am glad that this month is over as this July sucked ass. Here is to hoping that August is much better!

In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers.

Release Date: October 16, 2015 (U.S.A.)
Directed by: Guillermo del Toro
Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, & Charlie Hunman

Basically, this movie has all that I want: Guillermo del Toro, a Victorian ghost/horror plot, gorgeous costumes, & Tom Hiddleston. I’ve been a big Guillermo del Toro fan since Pan’s Labyrinth  & my love for Tom Hiddleston was planted since I saw his golden curls in Cranford.

This video below was shown at Comic-Con (2014) and shows the genius that is Guillermo del Toro.

Florence & The Machine’s song: Ship to Wreck

Also, One Direction’s Night Changes.

I am currently rewatching Poldark.

If this kiss doesn't spark your interest in Poldark, then I have nothing to say.

If this kiss doesn’t spark your interest in Poldark, then I have nothing to say.

I can honestly say that I am thinking of nothing in particular.

Coffee, that I’m drinking.

For a new wardrobe.
