Horror F(r)iends

I might not have made it clear enough on this blog: I live for the movies. All movies really but mainly horror. Good horror, bad horror, cheap horror - most of it has a place in this old heart of mine. My absolute favourites of all time include Candyman and Hellraiser - with a whole… Continue reading Horror F(r)iends

Autumn TV Recommendation: The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell

UGH. I'm completely obsessed with this woman - and now, this show. I woke up early (ish) this morning and have mainlined a handful of episodes in one sitting, while supping tea and being thankful for no work for another day. This is my favourite month hands down and it's because of little gems like… Continue reading Autumn TV Recommendation: The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell

American Horror Story Rewatch: Part 2

Just like that, I am done. I can now dip into Apocalypse with a well-rounded understanding of all the characters, and where they cross-over/feature in each season. It's so Stephen King! I have absolutely loved my AHS marathon (which didn't include Cult because that one is still so recent). Here are my thoughts: Freak Show Freak… Continue reading American Horror Story Rewatch: Part 2

Patchwork (Film) Review

Horror month rumbles on and I for one am as happy as a clam about it. This month is something of a mish mash of horror ideas which is ironic given the premise. Shall we? Patchwork (2015) IMDB Synopsis A bombastic throw-back horror-comedy that follows three young women who go out partying one night and… Continue reading Patchwork (Film) Review

The Scariest Tale of All

I often think about fear and how it affects me. All my life I think I've been afraid to try too hard. Sounds pretty general (and maybe relatable?) but if I'm honest, if I'd pushed myself harder in certain areas, things could have been different. Higher education for instance or my so-called talent for spinning… Continue reading The Scariest Tale of All

A Voluptuous Mind · Travel


I'm not the best traveler in the world. I get kind of angsty when I have to step outside my comfort zone, particularly when it comes to the practical aspects of the actual travel. But of course it's always worth it and I love nothing more than mooching around a new city. My favourite ever… Continue reading CopenYAYgen
