Riverdale Recap: Chapter 20, Tales from the Darkside

This week we discover that Riverdale has so many new and interesting townsfolk. We meet Creepy Farmer and a beret-wearing wheelchair-bound German drug lord (and it totally makes sense because this is Riverdale). Keep reading for our recap of the best bits of Chapter 20 – Tales from the Darkside.

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 19, Death Proof

It’s been a loooong week but we finally made it! For Bughead shippers, in particular, it felt like 536 years since the last episode. We are 6 episodes in and so far we have learned that the Riverdale writers want to put Bughead shippers in an early grave, Jingle Jangle is here to stay and that everyone will dress with absolutely no regard to what the current season may or may not be. Here’s our recap of the best bits of Chapter 19 – Death Proof.

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 18, When a Stranger Calls

When I found out that there would be a Betty-centric Riverdale episode titled ‘When a Stranger Calls’, I freaked out because a) I am a Betty stan through and through and b) When a Stranger Calls is one of the greatest horror movies of all times. This episode was a rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I yelled at the TV – my four standard Riverdale reactions now that I think about. Keep reading for the best bits of Chapter 18 – When a Stranger Calls.

This episode of Riverdale is brought to you by a cypher (I learnt a new word this week, kids), high school boys making shitty decisions and the reinforcement of librarian stereotypes (Tsk! Tsk!). Here’s our recap of the best bits of Chapter 17 – The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 16, The Watcher in the Woods

Welcome to another week of Riverdale where, thankfully, *SPOILER ALERT*, no one dies. I swear the Riverdale writers are trying to send fans to an early grave with all of this drama. This week we FINALLY get to see more Kevin Keller and are taken into the belly of the beast that is Southside High (news flash – the students are not as friendly as we were originally led to believe). Keep reading for our recap of the best bits of Chapter 16 – The Watcher in the Woods.

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 15, Nighthawks

Hold on tight because Season 2 of Riverdale is set to be a bumpy ride! Keep reading for our recap of the best bits of Chapter 15: Nighthawks.

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 14, A Kiss Before Dying

Can anyone remember what their life was like P.R. (pre-Riverdale)? I sure can’t. Those were dark days. It feels like we’ve been waiting years for Riverdale to grace our screens again (it’s actually only been 154 days, but who is counting?); thankfully the return of Season 2 of Riverdale did not disappoint. Dream sequences, old time-y hospital outfits, shower-cuddles and fog! Good lord was there fog. Check out our recap of the best bits of Chapter 14: A Kiss Before Dying.

3 Ways with Jojoba Oil

Jojoba OilOver here at Cactus Pop we are trying out new, natural and green ways to live. And something we have recently tried is jojoba oil. Jojoba oil exists in many moisturisers on the market, so it makes total sense that it would be amazing for your skin when used on its own. Read on below to see the three different ways we have been using it and, most importantly, whether it worked.

Netflix Australia: The Telenovelas You Need to Watch

You may have noticed that Netflix have recently added a bunch of Spanish-language TV shows, telenovelas and movies – yes, that includes Netflix Australia. This was a sight for sore eyes, because we have been suffering major telenovela withdrawals since En Otra Piel finished on SBS. So we watched the first episode of each of Netflix Australia’s telenovela offerings, so you don’t have to. And here, we help you to decide what to watch next!
