Weekly Favorites

Well, it’s October- one of my favorite months, because… I love:

1. All things pumpkin


I recently went to the grocery store and, in one trip, bought- pumpkin butter, mix for pumpkin bread, pureed pumpkin, a pumpkin tea light holder, and a pumpkin-scented candle. Did I mention that I LOVE PUMPKINS?

400PumpkinButter1Second thing I love about October is:

2. Fall -scented candles

Some of you may be wondering, what in the hell is a fall-scented candle? The fall scents encompass anything from pumpkin (duh), apple spice, sugar cookie, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, etc. And they make your house smell soooo delicious.

3. Watching scary movies at night (with only candles burning… fall candles)

The most recent scary movie I watched was “Dark Skies”. It’s about a family whose lives are tormented by creatures “not from this planet”.


Um… this movie is TERRIFYING. It might be because I have an odd fear of aliens (seriously, one of the only things that really scares me), or maybe because it’s JUST F’ING SCARY.


A lot of people on IMDB didn’t like it, and I see where they’re coming from with the critiques. I would recommend watching it, but I wouldn’t expect an outstanding accomplishment in horror movie history.

Ok, moving on from why I love fall so much. I also just love this guy:

4. Glenn Greenwald

Greenwald is a journalist, currently working for The Guardian. He is the journalist who helped Edward Snowden to release the NSA spy program.

You have to watch this video- He OWNS.

Definitely my new favorite journalist.

And finally,

5. Iron & Wine

I saw Iron & Wine for the first time last Friday, and I was blown away. I love his music so much more now. He had an 8-piece band with him and 3 backup singers, and he never once took a break! It was amazing!


Here’s one of my new favorite Iron & Wine songs:

Have a nice week!
