Friday Night Movie Recommendation: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Friday Night Movie Recommendation: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Friday! It’s the most wonderful time of the… week! Mostly because you guys get to watch a great movie and I feel like I’m contributing to your happiness. No selfless deeds, right? This week’s movie is incredible. I really enjoyed this and I’m really excited to get your thoughts on it. This, much like Let the Right One In, is a masterful take on the vampire tale. Can only foreign films do vampires right? I’m so tired of sparkling, love crossed vampires that I could throw up in tin foil and eat it (Monster House reference). These are not examples of what vampires are supposed to be! It’s a travesty. This movie gets it right.

Slow Cooker Potato and Leek Soup

Slow Cooker Potato and Leek Soup

Is it just me or has it been a long time since I’ve used my slow cooker? It is more of a fall/winter appliance and this is actually a fall/winter recipe but we’re still getting a couple cold days up here in southern Ontario so I decided to make it. That and I had some leeks and potatoes delivered in my fruits and veggies bin this week, so I took it as a sign.

Howdy and welcome back! Wednesday again, and this week’s recipe is delicious! It has one really unorthodox ingredient in it though, but it can easily be substituted for something a little more obvious. What is this random ingredient? You’ll just have to read on to find out.

Movie Talk: Upstream Color

Movie Talk: Upstream Color

I’ve got something a little different going on today, folks. I watched this movie a couple weeks ago and I still can’t put my finger on how I feel about it. I really hope you’ve seen it so we can talk about it. Everyone that I’ve talked to in person has no clue what I’m talking about when I bring it up and when I describe what it’s about, they’re even less interested. It’s honestly the most unique take on a narrative that I’ve ever seen and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. It’s available on Netflix here in Canada so hopefully it’s available where you are as well. Give it a watch if you have time and let me know what you think.

Healthy Summertime Ice Cream

Healthy Summertime Ice Cream

Happy summer, everyone! Well, almost anyways. I live in Canada near Toronto, where it’s freezing cold pretty much eight months of the year. This February was the coldest on record! What’s up with that? It was honestly so bitterly cold that all I wanted to do was go to work and come straight home. It made even simple things, like grocery shopping, a dreaded excursion. Do any of you live somewhere that gets cold like this? It’s awful. As such, when it finally gets warm out we go outside and enjoy the weather as much as we can while it lasts.

Bedroom Light DIY

Bedroom Light DIY

Good morning, lovelies! I have lots of new recipes and movie reviews for you guys but, for the life of me, I can’t find the time to work on a DIY project. I have a couple ideas rummaging through my brain but haven’t gotten around to doing them yet. As such, I thought I’d revisit an old DIY post for some of my newer followers to check out. Have an awesome day!

The Creative Fox Den

What do you get when you add driftwood and a lightbulb? Decor genius. I am so crazy in love with this project! We had an ugly ceiling fan in the bedroom since we moved in and it was high time that it hit the curb. It was abhorrent… and, that aside, the light portion didn’t even work – it didn’t even perform it’s main function! Talk about not living up to your potential. 20150201_132627_LLSIMG_20150125_125626 So, I had been pondering what to do in there for a light for a while. Then, one day, while perusing the aisles of the local Home Sense (have I mentioned how much I love Home Sense? It’s a lot anyways) and there it was… a dilapidated driftwood ball. It retailed for $49.99 but was literally falling apart so it was on clearance for $32. I love a good clearance item.

Movie Review: Ex Machina

Movie Review: Ex Machina

What can I say about this movie that hasn’t already been said? It’s wonderful, it has great character arcs, it has one of the best dance scenes I’ve ever seen, the visual effects are out-of-this-world, the score is perfectly in sync with the film and the AI aspect is incredibly well developed. Needless to say, I liked it. I liked it a lot.

Sunday Movie Marathon May Edition: Creature Features

Sunday Movie Marathon May Edition: Creature Features

Tentacles, sharp teeth, razor sharp claws, enhanced senses, and an uncanny ability to stick to the shadows 90% of the time. These are some of the defining traits of what makes a creature in a creature feature. These are the movies that make you jump into bed because there might be something lurking underneath it. The movies that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up when going into your basement and make you run back up the stairs two steps at a time. The movies that make you afraid of the dark because there just might be something there. Get your comfy clothes on, pop some popcorn and get ready to watch some movies that feature some pretty epic monsters.
