Hiiii and happy Friday! What are your weekend plans? We’re seeing friends, family and taking Penelope out for The Nightmare Before Christmas at the Landmark Loews here in Jersey City. It’s such an experience to see a film at this theater, and I’m irrationally excited to bring her for her first one!
Let’s get down to some favorites from the week!
We saw Bad Times at the El Royale last weekend (yes, Chris Hemsworth is practically shirtless in all of his scenes!). It’s gotten virtually no buzz but we kind of loved it. It’s just a fun Tarantino-esque film with an ah-mazing cast. I’m sure it will be streaming in 2 weeks, so there’s that.
We are also psyched to see the new Halloween! The original is one of my annual staples (seriously, it’s just so good), and this newest iteration is holding at 83%! Any horror film fans out there? I love a good horror film, like psychological horror-style. I don’t love super slashers or super gore.
The man behind Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch is retiring. Fun fact: I started my career at Sesame Street, where I worked in Global Toys licensing for 4 years. Follow That Bird will always be a childhood favorite.
Now this sounds like a fun way to ring in the holidays: Target is releasing a cheese advent calendar! All I need is one made of coffee right next to it, and I’m set for December.
We’re still slogging through our harvested stash, and here’s 7 ways to use up those apples!
I also reeeeeally want to make this apple cake. That brown sugar frosting tho…
Do I need these velvet pants?! A friend just got them in the navy twilight, but I’m kinda oddly crushing on the vintage gold. I think the styling with a chambray shirt (my all-time fave) is what’s putting me over the edge…
What are you loving this week? What are your weekend plans?
