Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life airs this Friday and WE. CAN’T. WAIT. Take a walk down memory lane with us as we remember a few of our favourite (and least favourite) things about Gilmore Girls!
Have you seen The Notebook too many times to count? Do you know all the words to every song in Dirty Dancing (including the one about wind)? Are you always on the lookout for new romantic movies? No probs. We’re here to help you, my friend. Diagnosis: Hopeless romantic. Treatment: One of our favourite foreign films – to be taken with food (preferably mint choc chip ice cream).
Cath Crowley is one of my favourite Australian YA authors. She can do no wrong in my eyes. And while I’m still not over the ending of the Gracie Faltrain series (thinking about it now still hurts *sob*), when her latest novel, Words in Deep Blue, was released I knew I had to read it. If you’ve never read any of Cath Crowley’s books or are considering reading Words in Deep Blue, here are 4 reasons why you should drop everything and start reading!
If you’re a Gilly, you’ll already know that the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life trailer was released today. You’ll not only know it but you’ll have seen it several times and paused it to analyse every 1-second clip for spoilers.
By now you’ve probably noticed the big things like Emily in a t-shirt and jeans, Stars Hollow: The Musical, Lorelai seeing a therapist, Jess’ hair, the random pig running through town, Miss Patty’s dramatic weight loss and Kirk’s beard. Oh and the Gilmore Guys cameo in the Dragonfly dining room. Well, I noticed some other stuff. Unimportant stuff, some might say. But who’s to say what’s important? Come on, I’ll take you on a journey back through the most joyous 2 minutes and 26 seconds we’ve collectively experienced since 2007 (when the last episode aired).
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Aussies have spent years living in FoMO. Well, no more, my friends. They’re finally available in Australia!
I, like the rest of the Internet, recently became obsessed with the Netflix Original tv series Stranger Things. It’s a thrilling supernatural mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire 8 episodes. It also kept my work colleagues thoroughly annoyed as I didn’t shut-up about how great it was for weeks. The cast are all exceptional, however, there is one standout character for me in the series. A plump, toothless kid who loves chocolate pudding. Dustin Henderson.
I recently got back from a month long trip across Canada which was an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience. So now that I’m back (and attempting to adjust back to normal everyday life) I thought I would share with you some of the highlights and even some recommendations. But it’s mainly a way for me to relive the experience and show off some of my snaps from the trip.
So if you’re planning a trip to Canada and looking for some inspiration then read on….
I am attempting to incorporate a few more healthy habits into my life. Tired of feeling sluggish and spending hours on the couch, last week I heard someone talk about going screen-free for a day, and I thought, YES. This is the perfect habit to introduce into my life. Spend a whole day with no computer, iPad, iPhone, tv or Kindle. Good for my eyes, my brain, and for my ability to procrastinate like there’s no tomorrow. So Sunday, I went screen-free for the first time. It was sort of tough, but sort of not. Here’s why.
Confession time. I’m a historical fiction junkie. Pretty much every book I read these days is set during a different era. It’s one of my favourite ways to learn about different periods throughout history. Through these amazing stories I’ve been imprisoned in the reign of terror during the French Revolution, lived through two world wars and been locked away in a concentration camp, campaigned for women’s rights in the late 19th century, and been privy to the rise and fall of families at the Tudor Court. So if you are like me and love this genre, or if you are interested in diving into a different era, then here are some of my favourites that I’ve stumbled upon over the years.
