Last-minute Halloween costume | Rosie The Riveter

Hello everyone! It's almost Halloween! Are you looking for a last-minute Halloween costume? Don’t want to spend money on a new store-bought one or take a lot of time to do it yourself? Perfect! Here's a quick and easy Rosie the Riveter costume.   Rosie the Riveter  was an allegorical  cultural icon  of World War II, representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during  the war.

Six (6) must-watch ghost movies for a scary evening

Hello everyone! There are only four days left till Halloween! After  six (6) books that will get you in the mood for Halloween , today I will share   six (6) must-watch ghost movies for a scary evening ! I watch all kinds of Halloween-related movies, from the spooky and scary to the comedic and family-oriented. I love Halloween and am also a horror fan; however, gory, slasher movies are not my favourite. Two of my favourite genres are  psychological horror  and  supernatural horror,  especially  ghost movies ! There are  so many must-watch  ghost movies. Today I am happy to share six (6) of my  personal favourites  with you. So without further ado, let's begin: The Orphanage (2007) The Orphanage  (Spanish:  El Orfanato ) is a 2007 Spanish  gothic supernatural horror  film .   A woman returns with her family to the closed orphanage, where she grew up, with the intent of reopening it. Before long, her son starts to communicate with a new invisible friend. Fragile (2005) Fragile  (Sp

Six (6) books that will get you in the mood for Halloween

Hello everyone! Halloween is a time for scares. Most people, myself included, look for an adrenaline rush in scary movies and TV shows. However, Halloween is the perfect time of year to cosy up with a good, entertaining book. Scary books happen to be my favourites! If you are struggling to find one that will leave you with  chills down your spine , look no further! These are my recommendation: I chose to include mostly classic, horror and ghost stories. I also included a book in Maltese and a Young Adult novel, perfect for those of you who do not like to be scared, I got you!   The Turn Of The Screw  by Henry James This story follows a governess who, caring for two children at a remote estate (Bly Manor), becomes convinced that the grounds are haunted.  The Turn of the Screw  is considered a work of both  gothic  and  horror fiction . I've always been intrigued by this story and I even watched each and every movie, TV and  Netflix  adaptation of this story.  Rosemary's Baby  by
