After some strangely warm days in Britain, autumn finally arrived. My feelings keep alternating between 'YES layers and hot drinks season!' and 'why's it so dark and cold already'. I should probably just enjoy this in-between weather before we take the sharp turn into winter where the only thing I'll be interested in is my duvet.
I wore this beauty in last week's outfit post and I'm certain it'll be making another appearance on the blog soon. Hats off to M&S for putting out this gem. It's black velvet so it moves with an understated shimmer, making it an all-occasions kind of piece.
Big Bud Press Pins
I finally decided to join the pin party and picked up a few from Big Bud Press. I got two gems and a planet for good measure. Big Bud Press has a great selection of pins, clothing, and patches and they even gave me two stickers with my purchase. Annoyingly, a customs charge was slapped on the package so I won't be rushing to order anything from the US again anytime soon.
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
I picked up Nimona on a whim since I'd heard of the author and wanted to check it out. I knew it was going to be good but I wasn't prepared for how good. Nimona is a powerful shapeshifter who joins supervillain Ballister Blackheart as his new sidekick. Blackheart isn't a typical supervillain; he's more concerned with exposing the Institution, the 'good guys' in charge of protecting the kingdom. Nimona on the other hand is keen on wreaking havoc and destruction much to Blackheart's dismay. It's got action, magic, and science and a story that will have you hooked.
We Got This
I've been listening to We Got This pretty much exclusively all month. It's a show where actors Hal Lublin and Mark Gagliardi settle arguments about the most important issues in our world, such as Coffee vs. Tea or which day of the week is best. While I love podcasts that tell stories or interview cool people, sometimes you just want to listen to two friends being hilarious and discussing which shape of pasta is best. It also has the best theme song in the world.
