my favourite things linkup

My Favourite Things is a monthly linkup hosted by Raisa and Eirene.

Despite being the best holiday ever invented, Halloween still isn’t that big of a deal where I live, and most people I know doesn’t really care about it. This year all the people who do care were busy with other things so I didn’t get to celebrate Halloween at all. *Insert sad panda face*

Since I had no party to go to, I ended up visiting my parents instead. Which isn’t a bad thing, it was nice. I’m at least 5 kg heavier now though, haha! What is it with parents and overfeeding? πŸ˜‰

Anyway, there’s always next year.

And regardless of time of year, there are always horror movies and shows. πŸ˜€ I’m a big horror fan so for this month, in honour of Halloween, I’m naming some of my current favourites.

Movies: The Babadook

I stumbled upon this movie while browsing the “supernatural horror” section on Netflix. The title is more than a little silly, but the actual movie is not.

A woman is living alone with her son,

I’ve recently received my second Spooky Box! This time the theme is “alien invasion”! πŸ˜€

Having an alien inspired box couldn’t come at a more perfect time. Space is so in right now with all the hype around The Martian (good movie btw!), the new Star Wars movie, and the exciting discovery of water on Mars. Not to mention the talk about remaking The X Files.

For the record: I believe in aliens 100%, considering the immense size of the universe it would be against all odds and probability that we are alone. Of course there is life on other planets! The only question is where and what kind?

I do not however believe in little green men coming to earth and abducting people in their sleep. πŸ˜›

Anyway, the box:

Alien Invasion

Imaginary Karin - Spooky Box: Alien Invasion

The card was appropriately green this time, and the charity of the month is the Solar Electric Light Fund (S.E.L.F.).

Also, I got more sequins. The previous box was filled with pearls and star, and this one had silvery paper strips + star and moon sequins.

Imaginary Karin - mushroom

I always take a million photos of colourful leaves this time of year, but now I’ve started doing something different. Last year I started a project of taking photos of mushrooms.

Why? Because mushrooms grow in autumn and they’re cute and I like them. πŸ™‚

I wonder if my affinity for mushrooms is somehow correlated with the unhealthy amount of Mario Bros. I played as a child? Like.. maybe I subconsciously connect them to 1UP and Toad somehow?

my favourite things linkup

My Favourite Things is a monthly linkup hosted by Raisa and Eirene. Except this month when it’s guest hosted by Tara. πŸ™‚

I had 4 weeks off from work in July, and now I’ve been back at the office for a month. Work is crazy most of the time, but honestly it feels pretty good. It’s nice to take a break but it’s also nice to have some order and routine back in my life.

I’m also glad autumn is here! The air is crispy cool and the forest is like a rainbow with all the different shades of green, red, yellow, and purple. The best time of the year is here! πŸ˜€

And here are my favourite things right now:

Our new car

volvo v70

Behold our new vehicle!

It’s a Volvo V70 from -07. The paint is metallic black. I know it will be difficult to keep clean, but I still like it. My favourite feature is the cruise control, I’ve never had that in a car before and quickly learned it’s great when driving long distances!
