Halloween Movies

Like most people, I have a few favourite Halloween movies that I enjoy watching around this time of year. I watched all of these movies during my childhood which is why I enjoy them so much. They hold so many memories of watching them with my brothers and quoting lines afterwards. 

In no particular order, these are my favourite movies to watch around Halloween:

Ghostbusters


There's no way you're surprised by this. I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan and I will watch this movie any time of the year, but it's something I usually watch around Halloween too because ghosts! And I watch the second one near Christmas/New Year's Eve. 

Army Of Darkness


I saw this movie before I watched the Evil Dead movies. All I knew back when I was a child was that Ash was amazing and his boomstick was awesome! The entire Evil Dead series holds a special place in my heart, but Army Of Darkness is what started me on the series. 

Beetlejuice


Of all the movies listed, I've seen this movie the most. Me and my brothers were obsessed with this movie when we were younger. So many lines were quoted constantly from this movie. But as a child, the ending always scared me. When Adam and Barbara turn old and into skeletons, I was so freaked out! 

For the IGGPPC Halloween Party, I'll be doing a live tweet along to Beetlejuice as part of the activities. At 9 p.m. EST, I'll be starting the movie and tweeting along during it. So feel free to join in Thursday night! 

What are a couple of your favourite Halloween movies!

  2. I've never seen Army of Darkness, but I love the other two. I'm definitely more a silly-scary than actual scary kinda girl. OOH - I would totally add Zombieland to this list!! Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg AND Bill Murray?! Be still my beating heart :p xxx

  3. I'm way overdue for another viewing of Army of Darkness, and Beetlejuice pretty much was my teen years.

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.


I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
