A new month means a new chapter in life. Let’s kick off November with 5 ways to improve our existence.

01.Wake up early. In fact, wake up two hours before you normally wake up, and make a habit of it. That way, you can start every morning cuddling with your partner, followed by a quiet morning walk, a long, hot shower, and breakfast.

02.Plan your day. Write it down. Find out what needs to be done as soon as possible, and what can wait. Having a plan and sticking to it makes things easier. Besides, crossing things off the list and see that you’ve accomplished something, feels amazing. It feels even better if you have time to cross a few things off tomorrows list as well.

03.Take time to find your inner peace. It sounds like some new age bullcrap, but actually, it isn’t. Being constantly stressed out and worried is like poison for your mind. So take time to relax and find peace. Some people meditate, some people lay flat on their back listening to music, some pray… Find something that works for you and do it daily.

04.Eat at least one healthy meal a day. It doesn’t even have to be some big and fancy thing. Eat an apple or a salad for lunch or breakfast.

05.Always pretend that the universe is trying to teach you something, even if you don’t really believe it. When you miss the bus, pretend that it’s the universes way of telling you to walk. Believing that there’s a lesson to be learned from everything, helps you think more positively.


The first snow fell yesterday, and my new vegan uggs – or as I like to call them: vuggs – came in the mail today. As you can see, they’re not original uggs. Unfortunately, Ugg Australia doesn’t do vegan versions of their popular boots.

Well, the joke’s on them. With veganism and animal cruelty being such a trend these days, more people are starting to wake up and realize what’s going on, and until Ugg Australia stop clinging to their murderous ways, we’ll just buy our boots elsewhere ?.   I bought mine here.

DO YOU LIKE THEM?

My mom texted me early Monday morning to let me know she and my dad had just bought a new cottage.


This kitchen looks nicer than the one I have in my apartment. No joke.


The cottage has two bathrooms. Here’s one of them.

I’m looking forward to spending a week or two here in the summer with my parents, siblings, niece, and nephews. Hopefully, mom and dad will let my boyfriend and I borrow it some time.  That would be awesome.

In every generation a Buffy the vampire slayer fan is born. The characters are just as easy to relate to these days as they were 15 or 20 years ago. With that in mind, here are 23 gift ideas for Buffy fans!

 The Darkest Minds

When kids start dropping dead from a mysterious disease, the survivors gain unusual abilities. The government quickly take action, building so-called rehabilitation camps in an attempt to contain and hopefully cure the children. They are divided into groups based on their abilities. The least dangerous ones are called Greens. Then follows gold. The most dangerous ones are called Orange and Red and have the ability to control other peoples minds and memories.  Children categorized as orange or red are shot on sight. Ruby is ten years old when she finds out that she has orange abilities. Seeing that her parents are worried about her, she decides to erase every memory they have of her. As a result, when her mother wakes up the next morning not knowing who the ten-year-old girl in her kitchen is, Ruby is sent to a rehabilitation camp, where she uses her ability to convince her doctor she’s a green rather than an orange. Six years later a test reveals the truth, and Ruby finds herself running for her life.

In my opinion, this is one of the best movies made this year! If you’re into sci-fi movies with a little bit of romance, I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as I do!

 


 Hereditary

Annie Graham lives with her husband Steve and their two children: Peter (16) and Charlie (13). Not too long after Annie’s mother, Ellen, passes away, Steve is informed that Ellens grave has been desecrated. Annie decides to seek comfort in a support group, where she befriends a seemingly nice woman named Joan. Later that evening Peter asks his mother if he can go to a school event, knowing she wouldn’t let him attend an alcoholic party. She lets him leave on one condition: he has to bring his younger sister along. Charlie quickly gets bored and wander around the house by herself, where she finds a cake and eats it. It turns out that the cake contained nuts, which she’s allergic to and she falls into anaphylactic shock. Peter drives as fast as he can to get her to the hospital in time, but as he swerves to avoid a dead animal in the road, Charlie, leaning out the window gasping for fresh air, is decapitated by a telephone pole. As the family mourns Charlie’s death, Joan suggests they should try a seanse to talk to Charlie’s ghost. This seems like a good idea, until objects begin to move and break.

I give this movie 3 stars, simply because it’s entertaining and different from your typical horror movie. What ruins it, in my opinion, is the ending. More precisely the part where a levitating Annie beheads herself with a piano wire, and the parts where she’s creeping around the house, moving from one corner of the roof to another. It gets to a point where it’s just too silly. Other than that, it’s a great movie.
