The Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes

It might sound weird, but I really enjoy seeing celebrities embracing a good costume. Whether for Halloween, San Diego Comic Con, or any other celebration, I enjoy seeing the detailed and ingenuity of elaborate costumes, or the more amusingly simpler ones (you’ll see what I mean below).

So I thought it’d be fun to look at some of my favourites over the years and maybe you’ll play dress-up while we’re all just home having our own little one-on-one celebrations (or like me, you just look at pictures).

Animal Crossing Hot Takes/ Unpopular Opinions

I’ve been able to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a few weeks now, and while I am not as talented as friends who have the game and seem to master everything, I’ve found loads about it I’ve loved.

There are some gripes I have with the game – not many though! – but I am going to be a sook and complain about my hot takes and unpopular opinions below.

Fandome Got Me Hard for All Things DC in 2021

I haven’t made it a secret that I’m a huge Marvel fan on this blog or on social media. I have my favourite Avengers, way too many toys and things, but I’m actually a big DC fan too. And boy, DC fans are eating good next year.

I have never been pro or anti either one, one might do something better than the other while both carrying different tones and elements, but I have to freak out over the DC Fandome showcase we were given and what I’m looking forward to in 2021, DC’s year.

Let’s limp into 2020 by Saying Goodbye to Half-Dead 2019!

It’s been a damn doozy of a year, hasn’t it? What’re some of the stuff we’ve done around here? Well…
This year we made a lot of food, starting with sweet and savoury chickpeas to snack on and our personal favourite around here, Feta Me Meli for some sweet and crispy feta goodness. We also kept the sweet treat train going with three-ingredient mousse and apple galettes. Look I’m not one to toot my own horn but TOOT-DAMN-TOOT these apple galettes are so damn good, especially with maple. But let’s not forget Halloween month where we worked with apples again and made black caramel apples then a spooky platter with sweet, salty and savoury to enjoy before topping it off with some Bat Outta Meatloaf.

 

Speaking of Halloween, we also did some fancy nail effects- reptilian, dragonlike scale claw nails and branded/scorched ‘cross’ nails. I also shared some of the US-based places I’d love to go to for Halloween!

 

We also started a YouTube channel of the highest quality! It included a little summer makeup chuck, kit or keep and reviews of Sephora’s Gimme Some Lip pack and a Brand Spotlight of FLOWER Beauty. Not only did we do another review, this time for NARS lipstick pencils, but we also listed some realistic ways to take some years off (if you so feel the need to) and just posted a simple skincare routine.

 

Yes, I also had to share my love of Marvel by reviewing Sephora’s awesome brushes and giving some [read: ranting] theories on who would live vs die in Avengers: Endgame – and some I was actually right about!

Finally, I nudged you to try to use Pinterest’s secret boards and cooed over the Peace Island game, which is where I got the cute postcards from above!

One of our last posts this year was to give you some tips in summer blackouts, but really for any blackouts. Unfortunately, I was editing the post just as we were devastated by fires here in eastern Australia. The toll on every part of life here has been affected, including animals and their homes. You might have heard how Lewis the koala had to be put down because of his burns along with half of the koala population in Port Macquarie have died and 80% of their habitat destroyed. While they aren’t “functionally extinct” yet, as previously stated, they do need our help and a great way you can bring awareness or donate is to the Australian Koala Foundation, the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie and Koalas In Care.

 

This is the last from us for 2019! We’ll be back in January 2020 with some new stuff, so for any updates and ramblings, follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Stay safe, eat well and we’ll see you in 2020!

This Video Game Finally Lets Me be a Detective Cat

That’s all you really need to know, isn’t it? An open-world game is about about a group of cats on a remote Maine island that try to figure out where the hell the humans have disappeared to.

 

I cannot stress how insanely excited I am right now.

Venom is the Romance Movie I Was Hoping It Would Be

soulmates
Some mood music before we begin-

Venom came out on Thursday and I have been so excited to see it. I love Venom in cartoons and the comics, so I thought I’d talk about the movie, what I liked, some things I didn’t really like so much, but mostly pointing to the fact I love Eddie and Venom together.

(Spoilers will be white text you can highlight if you want to see!)
