I always love the way the house looks like time of year, so I felt like taking a few pictures to try and capture the festivity. I especially love our reindeer, as it looks like it has come from a children's story book.
As the days have gotten darker and colder, the house has come alive with light and warmth. We spend our evenings watching the films we watch this time every year, along with the necessary hot chocolate of course.

So this weekend I spent some time is Bristol, as I was going to visit my friend at Uni and go to the 02 Academy to watch The Pretty Reckless on their UK tour.
I've wanted to see The Pretty Reckless for a long time and they didn't disappoint, we even got to meet the band! I loved being in Bristol as well because it has everything from cool vintage shops to Banksy's original street art.

I also thought id give a little update as to why I haven't been blogging as regularly, as its mainly because I got another job! I now work through the week so sometimes I end up not thinking about blogging, but now I've settled into the routine I'm hoping I'll get back into the swing of things! I have also been busy seeing friends on nights out etc and also going out to loads of different places to eat, and I'm thinking of doing a post on the best places we've been to (see the picture of the five dollar shake, yeah I thought I was in Pulp Fiction).
Something I've also loved in October is of course the new series of American Horror Story, one of the weirdest but best shows ever!
Hope you enjoyed this little update :)

I must confess. I'm a Tarantino-aholic. The first time I saw Pulp Fiction I didn't even do the usual one eye on my instagram feed one on the TV, I just watched. Whether it's his style of directing, writing or usually hilarious cameos, Quentin Tarantino can make damn good films. I think you should watch them all, but I thought I'd do a little post of some of my favourite scenes.
Pulp Fiction - Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega.
Well, to be honest you're missing out if you don't see the whole film, but the scene titled 'Vincent Vega and Marcellus Wallace's wife' is arguably the films best and most iconic. From the moment the pair pull up at the incredible 1950's diner, you are hooked on the scene. There is so much tension but it is balanced by comedic moments such as John Travolta reluctantly dancing compared to Mia's coke-infused enthusiasm. I won't ruin what happens in case you haven't seen it, but the scene finale is arguably the best in cinema.
Inglorious Basterds - Operation Kino.
Again, I don't want to give any spoilers. Inglorious Basterds is one of my favourite films of, like, ever. I don't really know why, but it definitely has something to do with this scene. Or Brad Pitt's hilarious Italian accent. The dialogue in this scene is genius, it's in sub titles so you got to read fast to get it all but it's amazing. The film is basically an alternative WWII in Tarantino's mind, and this scene is essential to how the war will end, and the results of this 'operation' are....well....mixed.
Django Unchained - Leo arrives.
I think Leo in a Tarantino film was always going to be good. And it is. Playing a malicious plantation owner, leo takes to the character of a villain. And he does it so well, not even breaking character when he slices his hand open after breaking glass on a table.
From Dusk Till Dawn.
I adore the first half of this film, admittedly the second half just...is unexplainable. It follows two criminals who hijack a family's vacation to Mexico, but in a Tarantino style, who also has a leading role. Also starring Juliette Lewis, the movie is wonderfully bizarre.
Do you guys have a favourite?
