Hope you're all as excited for Halloween as we are, the film marathon season has begun with the Addams Family as we tend to start tame before moving up to more disturbing titles like 'The Silence of the Lambs.'
We've decided to switch up the formatting of our blog a bit and include a bit more lifestyle content. As the weather grows colder we've been addicted to our snoods that we got from Primark last winter, literally sleeping in them... Charlotte bought a vinyl player and so we have been discovering old favourites such as 'Dirty Diana' and unashamedly harmonizing to 'Man in the Mirror' sat on her bed. Now, of course I too want a vinyl player, it's nice to be able to listen to an album all the way through and appreciate it as a whole piece of work rather than constantly skipping songs and artists.
Charlotte set up a film club for the media students and so we decided to bake some cakes to entice in members. Our last baking attempt was undeniably disastrous as we discovered that salted caramel can actually be too salty, as in could cause severe dehydration and kill all the garden slugs. We were aiming for the caramel core found in our favourite ice cream - Ben and Jerry's Blondie Brownie. This batch of chocolate smarties cupcakes were surprisingly good.
We've also been discovering how convenient public transport can be and got the bus to TK Maxx, where we picked up journals to start scrapbooks in. The journals are a really cute way to preserve the memories of the last few years before we head off to Uni.
Finally, my new camera arrived and I have been experimenting with the different features, such as the motion photo which is very nice indeed, so expect more vlogs and fashion videos to appear on our YouTube channel. Get excited for Halloween people, it's fast approaching!
