Halloween is literally under a week away now and whilst I’m excited for it, I’m also not all that arsed… Why I hear you ask? I’m just not arsed anymore… The last time I went out for Halloween was back in 2015 and it was so much fun, but shit at the same time. Me and Dane dressed as South Park’s Mysterion and The Coon and we had such a laugh! Loads of people recognised who we were (some too bloody much!) but the whole night we couldn’t get a drink and we constantly had the same guy shouting out character names out. After the 10th time, we knew it was time to go home.

So since then, we’ve stayed in and greeted trick-or-treaters. We don’t even watch a horror movie it anything. This year however we’re staying in and playing Luigi’s Mansion 3, which we’re looking forward to! May also watch some scary films too… Just to shake it up a bit!

Last week the gorgeous Sarah over at Raiin Monkey tagged me to take part in the Horror Movie Tag that she had taken part in. I know she’s been loving Halloween this month and as I got myself into the spooky spirit a few weeks back at the Bubble Boba Halloween event (which you can read here), I thought this tag would be a bit of fun to take part in! I don’t recall doing anything like this before and I do miss taking part in tag posts on my blog.

1. What is the first horror movie you remember watching?

Alien and I fucking hated it and still hate* it! I was only 6 when I first watched it and the only scene I saw was the chest burst one. It frightened me so much that I didn’t sleep for about a week. Since then I can’t watch that film (or any of the other Alien films for that matter) because they just make me anxious and sleep doesn’t happen.

*I don’t HATE the film… But it freaks me out! 😛

2. What is your favourite horror movie?

Shaun of the Dead. Now I know this is a comedy style horror, but it’s still up there as a horror movie for me and as it’s one of my favourite films, it’s definitely up there as my favourite. Alongside that however I also love 28 Days LaterHostel II (I love the first one but I prefer the second one more), the Saw series (Saw II is my favourite!), Rosemary’s Baby, A Quiet Place, Carrie, Planet Terror and many more. Those are just a small few.

3. What’s your favourite horror movie genre?

Does thriller count? Alongside slasher and zombie. I’m not a massive zombie movie fan, but I have named a couple on here so… 😛

4. What genre scares you the most?

Probably sci-fi to be honest with you. As I mentioned, I hate Alien due to how much it freaks me out… But alongside that some other alien style films creep me out too. I guess it depends, but other than that nothing really scares me, you know? Might make me overthink and be anxious after… Which the Alien movies are good at! 😛

5. What is the last horror movie you watched that actually scared you?

I haven’t in all fairness… Again Alien creeps me out so if I re-watch any of those I do usually feel a bit… Unsettled when trying to sleep. The last time I watched an Alien movie was when I lived at home and that was over 3 years ago now!

6. Who is your ultimate Scream Queen?

Nah not really… If anything I usually react by saying, “Whoa what the fuck is going on?” I never scream at horror movies. I might jump at times, yes, but never scream.

7. What’s a concept that you’d like to see in horror?

I don’t know in all fairness… This is a tough question! Something unique to be honest with you. I feel like we rarely get this now! I did love A Quiet Place as I found this was done so well! I couldn’t say what concept I would like… I do love my horror comedy films like Shaun of the Dead and Doghouse.

8. What is your favourite on-screen kill?

Definitely the scene in Hostel II where Beth cuts off Stuarts genitals and lets him bleed to death. He’s such a prick at the end of the day and was going to rape and kill Beth! He deserved to die, he was such a fool. 😛 I’m sure there are better on-screen kills but this is the first one that popped into my head.

9. What’s your favourite franchise?

I don’t think I have one when it comes down to horror to be perfectly honest with you… I’m not really all that arsed about horror when it comes down to it… If anything probably Saw because it’s probably the only horror series and franchise I’ve fully kept up with. That and I do really love the story behind it. BUT although I used to be a massive horror movie fan growing up, I’m not so arsed about it now. 😦

10. Who’s your favourite horror director?

Eli Roth is one of the first people who come to mind. He’s the guy behind Hostel I and Hostel II, as well as Cabin Fever. I can’t think of anyone else in all honesty with you. 😦 I’m so crap when it comes down to horror movies! 😛

I have to add though what an amazing job John Krasinski did with directing A Quiet Place! I honestly loved that film so much and if anything I regret not watching it in the cinema. A Quiet Place: Part II is set to come out at the start of 2020, so I am beyond excited for that! 😀

So that is the end of the Horror Movie Tag! 😀

I want to say a massive thank you to my best blogger friend Sarah for tagging me to take part in this! It really cheered me up yesterday on my lunch break at work as I wrote my answers!

I tag EVERYONE who reads this post to give this tag a go themselves! 😀 If you do take part, please tag me in your posts so I can come and read your answers myself! 🙂

Until next time all, take care and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. 🙂

The Pokemon Tag

As regular readers will know, I LOVE Pokemon! I have done since I discovered the show aged 6 and then the game aged 9. I’ve just been hooked since then and really do love playing both the games still to this day, as well as collecting Pokemon items from the Pokemon Centre in Japan.

I wasn’t at all surprised when I read that Sarah over at Raiin Monkey had taken part in this tag, as I know she loves Pokemon just as much as I do! 😀 She mentioned at the end of the post how she’s happy for anyone to take part in this tag, so whilst I’m poorly in bed I’m giving it a go myself! 😀

I really hope you enjoy my answers to this tag post, I know I’m excited to give it a go.

1. Favourite Pokemon? Definitely Mew, Dragonite and all the Eeveelutions! 😀 I love Cubone and Ampharos too.

2. Least favourite Pokemon? I can’t say as I have a least favourite Pokemon in all fairness… If anything maybe some of the latest generation Pokemon as they’re just lame and weird made up stuff to get the numbers up.

3. Favourite starter Pokemon? Cyndaquil! I love that Pokemon so much.

4. Favourite Eeveelution? Ooo this is a tough one to be honest you!

5. Favourite legendary Pokemon? Definitely Mew as well as all the dog legendary Pokemon from the second generation, Raikou, Entei and Suicune.

6. Most terrifying Pokemon? Mmm this is a tough one as I don’t find any really terrify me as such… If anything MissingNo used to creep me out growing up! I remember catching one in Pokemon Red and it glitched my game, nearly to the point of me losing everything! That’s the most terrified a Pokemon has ever gotten me. 😛

7. Most adorable Pokemon? Aww this is a tough one as there’s so many! 😛 The baby Pokemon evolutions are definitely adorable and I loved them all in generation 2! Of course Mew and the Eeveelutions are up there with the cute Pokemon. One of my favourites has to be Cubone though. 🙂

8. Most amusing Pokemon? Misty’s Psyduck. 😛

9. Favourite Pokemon type? Dragon and fairy.

10. Least favourite Pokemon type? I’d definitely say bug. It’s so shite it’s a joke. 😛

11. Favourite new Pokemon from X and Y? Fennekin and Sylveon! 😀

12. Favourite Pokemon attack or move? Dragon rage is a pretty good one, alongside some of the moves Eevee can learn from it’s Eeveelutions in the new Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee.

13. Favourite trainer type? Trainer type?! Erm… I don’t know really… I guess the ones that carry cute Pokemon is always good and of course the easy trainers. 😛

14. Your gym leader speciality? I don’t fully get this question… If you mean if I was a gym leader I think my speciality would be fire Pokemon as I seem to sway towards them quite a lot. 😛 In my team I’d have Fennekin, Cyndaquil, Vulpix, Flareon, Arcanine and Rapidash.

15. Favourite region? Kanto and Johto. I love them both too much to pick just the one.

16. Favourite location? Definitely a toss up between Lavender Town from Kanto and Mt Moon from Johto when you get to watch Clefairy and Clefable dance on a Monday.

17. Most relatable Pokemon? I legit went to Buzzfeed and did a quiz because I honestly couldn’t come up with an answer for this! I got Mewtwo and it said, “You’re a rare one, that’s for sure. At times you may let your anger get the best of you, but we all know that you’re a sensitive and thoughtful spirit at heart. This world needs you, but just doesn’t know it yet.” Good enough. 😛

18. Favourite gym leader? Definitely Blue Oak/Gary Oak. I can’t really pick a favourite gym leader as I can’t say that I have one, but I love Gary’s character. He definitely needed to become a gym leader in the future.

19. Favourite elite 4 member/champion? I rather like Lance from gen 1 as he comes back for Silver and Gold to help you out for a “mission”.

20. Favourite Professor? Professor Oak for sure, the original professor! 😀

21. Favourite Pokemon bad guy? Team Rocket is always a good choice, but I really liked N too from the Black and White games.

22. Favourite rival? I’d say Gary Oak but I actually rather liked the rival from Silver, Gold and Crystal. He’s called Silver and from memory he’s actually Giovanni’s son!

23. A friend-relatable Pokemon? Oh God knows! Erm… Probably Snorlax. I love sleeping and if someone wakes me I get very angry. 😛

24. Most useful Pokemon? Every single Eeveelution to be honest with you. 😛 If you needed heat – Flareon. If you needed water – Vaporeon. If you needed electricity – Jolteon. You get the point. 😛

25. Favourite animal Pokemon? Definitely fox/dog.

26. Favourite coloured Pokemon? Purple and white and pink.

27. Favourite game? I’d have to say Pokemon Silver. As much as I loved the original three, Silver has a soft spot in my heart. It’s the Pokemon game I’ve played the most and almost came close to finishing. The reason I didn’t was due to my game becoming corrupted. 😦 I cried for days after it happened.

28. What did you nickname your rival? It was usually my cousin as we used to compete against one another when we played Pokemon. She always did better than I did though. 😛

29. Favourite Pokemon tune or song? There’s loads from Pokemon Silver, Gold and Crystal that I love such as “Violet City” and “Azalea Town”.

30. Most nostalgic element? I think when the Gold and Silver remakes came out and it meant I could replay the games again and gain myself some memories back to when I was a teenager. I spent hours on end, to all hours playing the original Silver game. I think I need to now go away and play Pokemon Silver as I’m just getting too many memories. 😛

Aww I really loved taking part in this Pokemon tag and if it wasn’t for Sarah giving it a go, I don’t know how long it would have taken me to find out about it! Make sure to go and read Sarah’s post to see what her answers were.

I tag everyone who reads this post and loves Pokemon to give the tag a go yourself! 😀

Do you love Pokemon just as much as I do? Let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for the weekend, I know I am! 😛

The Self Love Tag

I’m sorry my blog has been lacking of a blog post since my haul, but sadly due to being a mixture of busy and Dane taking too long to do his part on a blog post I wanted to get something out there before the end of the week!

We’ve been really busy sadly due to both being off work to chill out together and do work on the house. We have done zero relaxing and chilling and more WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK… 😛

Finally it’s Saturday night, I have some vlogs playing and I’m going to take part in the self love tag, which I found over on Sally’s blog Little Budget’s, which I’ll leave a link to here.

Here are the rules:

Answer all the questions honestly!

Tag 5 people you’d like to do this tag! I’m just going to put it out there, if you read this post you must take part in this tag! 😛

Anyway, on with the questions! 😀

1. What is something that’s getting you down at the moment?

Without going into too much detail about it, my job. It’s not what I want to do in life right now and without sounding like a dick, I am so much better than that. I have an MA for fuck sake and it certainly isn’t in the job I’m currently doing. Alongside that money, which again is down to my job.

2. What is something that makes you happy?

Spending time with my boyfriend and friends and writing for my blog. I know that’s probably classed as two things, but they’re both things that cheer me up no matter what.

3. Name 3 guilty pleasures.

Eating anything savoury, scouting eBay for geeky goodies and picking the ingrown hairs out of Dane’s face. 😛

4. What is something about yourself you want to improve?

I’d like to try and get back into shape again. I was toned as fuck when I first started my job and I looked hella good because of it! Now, whilst I have lost a bit of weight I want to be toned. I miss my minor two pack abs and hench as fuck arms. 😦

5. When was the last time you belly laughed?

Wednesday night/Thursday morning over at a friends house. We were playing games and we just hollered with laughter. It was amazing.

6. What is your biggest insecurity/fear?

I guess failing. I don’t want to end up looking back on my life and thinking, “Fuck Nat what did you do wrong?” I want to have a great job that not only pays my bills but enables me to do things I REALLY want to do. Examples being going to Japan, buying things I really want, paying off our mortgage, etc. As well as that I really do want to start my own family, but right now I’m such a mess that I just can’t and that fucking sucks. I just want to do well in life. 😦

7. Name a song that always cheers you up when you’re down.

Erm… I’m not sure to be honest I have so many! xD Right now the main song from Persona 5 makes me happy.

8. Name 3 things you like about yourself.

My eyebrows as they’re naturally amazing. My hair because it’s lovely, long and wavy. Finally… Probably (I know it’s two) but my boobs and bum. Over the years they’ve just got better and it’s nice to finally have a chest! That and Dane loves my bum, which is something I’ve always hated as I thought it was too big. It’s from him loving it that has helped me love it too. :’)

9. What is an achievement that’s made you proud of yourself this year?

I can’t say as I have one to be honest… I know that sounds dumb but I really can’t think of anything. So far this year it’s been a mix of massive emotions. If anything I know a few are proud of me for reaching out for help about my mental health, but I just feel like that isn’t enough to make myself proud sadly. So right now nothing has made me proud yet… Sadly.

10. Tell us your happiest memory.

Ever? Erm… Quite possibly when me and Dane went to Fuerteventura for the first time and went out together for little adventures in the day. Due to this it makes me really excited for September when we go again!

So those are my answers for the self love tag! Will you be giving it a go? If so make sure to comment on here and link me to your posts! 😀

Until next time all take care and I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend so far.
