Um, these gorgeous bright yellow loafers that I spotted on Boot Rescue on Instagram.
Oh my! First of all, yellow is my favorite color. And who doesn’t like a good loafer? And then put them together with those adorable jeans…I swooned! I’m still swooning. In fact, I swoon every time I see them. I need these in my life.
I love that the heel isn’t super high too. My ankles are getting worse in my old age. :p
I have no idea what brand they are, but I’ve found similar cuties online. I’ll keep searching for these babes.
I have been in a bit of a funk this October. And I haven’t been much in the mood for watching horror movies, per my annual Halloween Countdown. But I’ve been trying.
I usually look forward to Scream-fest or Fear-fest or whatever else is on TV. TMC is a great channel for old horrors and that’s where I watched my first horror of the season: The Old Dark House.
This movie was released in 1932 and stars Boris Karloff and Gloria Stuart (the old Rose from Titanic).
I was kind of excited to watch this movie as I’ve read good reviews about it. But I found it hard to follow and hard to hear. And I eventually got a little bored with it.
A small group of travellers caught in a storm come upon an old house in the countryside where they receive shelter by Horace Femm and his sister Rebecca. Horace fears that the storm will trap the guests inside while warning them that their mute butler Morgan is a dangerous heavy drinker. Rebecca tells Margaret about the Femm family, which she says was sinful and godless, and accuses Margaret of being sinful as well. Rebecca also reveals that her 102-year-old father still lives in the house.
There is a very quick romance (hey, we just met but…let’s get married!), there’s a pyromaniac locked in an upstairs room, there’s a fight and a death, and there are some creepy people.
This movie let me down. It was confusing and rushed and the ending was oh-so-terrible.
Watch it if you want…or don’t. I doubt it will make much difference.
Next up….Jeepers Creepers 2.
I was sick a lot when I was little. I was in and out of the hospital – usually with pneumonia – and I missed out on a lot of things.
I remember one year I was supposed to go outdoors ice skating with my Brownies group. But I was sick again and not able to go.
I am pretty sure I whined about that excursion quite a bit because one weekend, right around Christmas, my dad packed me up and took me to a pond (just off the highway connector) so that I could skate. It wasn’t as much fun as being with a bunch of my Brownie friends, and we weren’t out for long, but I remember it well. I slid and slided and skated over that ice like I was a ballerina – even in my snowsuit (Nova Scotia winters are cold y’all) – the shine from the sun my spotlight. And then it was time to go.
And every time I pass that pond, usually with ducks sitting in it or cows grazing around it, I think of my skating excursion.
It’s finally here! October. My favorite month!
- Because I love Fall
- Because TODAY is MY BIRTHDAY!
3. Because I love Halloween!
4. Because I love Pumpkins. (Pumpkins themselves, pumpkin spice, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin decorations….)
Every October I do my best to watch some great and not-so-great Halloween-themed/Horror/Scary movies. And, if you’ve been watching this blog for some time, you will have seen some of my reviews. By far, the best reviews were in October 2012 . Actually, everything from October 2012 was pretty great.
I’ve watched some great classics (Hocus Pocus, Halloween), I’ve watched some creepiness (Carnival of Souls, Eyes without a Face), and I’ve watched some crap!
So this year I’m asking for some help. What are some Halloween movies I should be watching this year? Yes, we’re definitely going to see the new Halloween movie (can’t wait to see you later this month, Michael Myers!), but I need some suggestions of what to watch.
Crap or classic…it doesn’t matter. I will do my best to locate what you offer and let you know what I think.
