November New Release Books


Let's be honest, my backlog of books to be read on my Kobo is insanely long. But, more and more books keep being released that I MUST have. November's new book releases are no exception. These are the titles I'm most wanting to pick up. 

Witchy Reads: Books for October


What do I consider a witchy book? Usually they're rainy, take place in autumn or winter, are moody, definitely magical, have a cozy vibe, and obviously they star witches. Some of these witchy reads are lighthearted, romantic, coming of age, or fantasy stories. But they all have magical, strong woman who are witches. The weather outside always influences what I read, and right now, any of these books would be the perfect fit. Here are my picks for books for October (and the rest of the cold months). 

Cozy Games Wish List

What's cozy gaming? It's just that - gaming that provides a cozy atmosphere; relaxing, comforting, not stressful. After learning about this newer gaming genre, I realized cozy gaming has always been what I've been interested in and played. Probably one of the most popular cozy games? The Animal Crossing series, and well, I've put in hundreds of hours into Animal Crossing New Horizons and New Leaf. I've explored this genre with Stardew Valley, My Time at Portia, Disney Dreamlight Valley and Story of Seasons as well. I love these cozy farming-type games. 

In September, two new cozy games are being released and they have topped my wish list!

Cakeworthy Halloween Line

Flannel shirts are a staple for fall, right? Especially oversized and super soft ones! I purchased one from Cakeworthy back in the spring and it is THE BEST. And now they've released an incredible line up of Halloween-inspired clothing, including flannels.

Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, The Haunted Mansion, and SO MUCH more!

Look at this Haunted Mansion Glow dress!

The entire collection is huge so I'm only sharing a handful of my favourites. Definitely check out Cakeworthy's entire Halloween line

Old Navy Halloween Shirts

Yes, I know it's still August, but I'm already in the fall and Halloween mood. The weather has cooled a bit, Pumpkin Spice Lattes arrive this week at Starbucks, and Homesense is full of fall decor. I can feel my body relaxing as I slowly turn into my cozy basic self. 

Costumes are slowly arriving in stores and Halloween t-shirts and pajamas are popping up too. There are some really cute shirts available for the whole family - from subtle prints to large graphics. 

Pouches, Totes, and Scrunchies, Oh My!

My first vendor show in years is on April 23rd. I'm so excited but also a little nervous. I always found vendor shows inspired me. I'd be overstimulated and exhausted by the end of the day, but I'd have so many ideas and plans in my head for my next projects and shows. 

I've been sewing at a slower pace than I used to but this is because of 1. kids and 2. avoiding burnout. It's working out though. I enjoy disappearing to my sewing room and creating. I'm also loving finding amazing fabric again. 

Anyone else a Gilmore Girls fan?

Disney Wish Cruise with Young Kids

We went on a 4 night cruise on the Disney Wish. It was my first cruise ever and I'm hooked! I came home and started looking up more Disney cruise things - the other ships, dates, places they visit. I want to do all the Disney cruises!

The Disney Wish ship was gorgeous, all the cast members were incredibly friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and the kids were obsessed with the kids' pool and splash zone. I was also in love with our stateroom. We had a oceanview with a verandah. I've now been spoiled and I don't know if I'll be able to do a cruise in the future without one!

Now how did the kids do?
