    HOWELL FAMILY PUMPKIN FARM- SUNFLOWER FIELD EXPERIENCE

    A while back my sister and I went to Howell Family Pumpkin Farm and it was such a blast. I’m wearing the same outfit as my last experience post it’s because we went on the same day. I wanted to do a two part post for this place since we went to the sunflower area as well as the places with the Halloween decorations. I also want to quickly give a shoutout to their staff because we were supposed to go on a different day but it ended up raining so we couldn’t go since it was closed and they were super easy to talk to and quickly changed the…

    How To Balance School And Blogging

    School And Blogging I know a lot of people are back at school and I’ve gotten a lot of messages, emails and comments asking me how I was able to balance university and blogging so I thought I would write an advice post about that topic. University and school in general can be very demanding and to be honest so can blogging. Blogging sounds like it’s all fun and games until you actually get into it and realise just how difficult blogging can be. It can also be quite time consuming especially if you are someone that writes longer posts that require more research. I have also noticed over the…

    Weighing In On “Couch Guy”

    If you’re not Gen-Z or a millennial or someone who uses social media quite often you may not have heard of Couch Guy. However, for a lot of us Couch Guy has blown up and become a thing. To give you a little background I’ll tell you about what happened and how he went viral. Basically, a girl on TikTok went to visit her long distance boyfriend, now known as Couch Guy, and posted a video of their reunion. TikTok users first saw this as a cute moment between a couple but soon began accusing Couch Guy of being unfaithful. In the video, you can see him on the couch…

    I Cut My Own Hair- Here’s How It Went

    I wanted to start out by saying that I have been cutting my own hair for a few years now. I’m not a big fan of random people touching my hair and find getting my haircut professionally a bit annoying. If I want a particular style that I can’t cut myself I’ll go to a professional but for a while now I’ve just wanted to trim my hair which is quite easy to do. Recently, I keep seeing everyone with curtain bangs which are like regular bangs but longer- they reach your chin- and I thought that would be fun to try on my own hair. I found a couple…

    Hocus Pocus

    I have been a little bit stressed over the last few days with some stuff going on in my life so I decided to take the afternoon off and watch Hocus Pocus. For those of you who may not be familiar with this movie, Hocus Pocus is a Halloween classic about some witches. I won’t say too much about it since I don’t want to ruin the movie for those of you who haven’t seen it yet. I’m a big fan of Bette Midler and this is one of my favourite Halloween movies. I usually go for something more horror with lots of blood and murder but this year I…

    6th Blogiversary!

    It’s officially been six years! I started blogging in 2015 and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life (and probably the best decision I made in 2015 🥲). I want to thank everyone for the continued support that you’ve shown myself and the blog. Even though I don’t know you guys in real life I feel like I have a special connection with you guys. In a lot of ways I’m able to connect with the WordPress community better than most people in real life. I feel like I have a space where I can truly be myself and I will always be grateful for…
