My Penpal Is A Killer: The Hunt A Killer Subscription Box

HAK-logo

Mysteries, thrillers, crime, I live for it. Ho boy, if you saw my Netflix ‘Recently Watched’ you might wonder if I have any joy in my life. Blame my mum and her macabre interests rubbing off on my sister and me.
I found out about this subscription almost a year ago while compiling a list of boxes I’d like to review for the blog. After jotting down a full page of boxes (almost all of them I realised much later don’t even ship to Australia) I found a link to Hunt A Killer, an immersive, on-going spiral of intrigue and insanity (my opinion there), where you’re teamed with a penpal who sends you cryptic shit and basically puts a lot of trust in you, but more about that later..

Happy New Year!

Hey guys!

Before we come back in 2018, I just wanted a big thank you for reading my big, for liking, posting, everything. I started this blog with no big goals for it other than sharing info and opinions no one asked for, in a way that wasn’t really being done before, so the fact that you come here and check it out is just unbelievable to me and I thank you so, so much.

I hope you had a great holiday and chill out, and here’s to 2018!

What To Know Before Going Platinum Blonde

What-To-Know-Before-Going-Platinum-Blonde

I love being blonde. I’ve been every hair colour and shade (except black), but I love being a platinum blonde, and it’s the colour I’ve been the longest. It’s almost like I don’t know anything else, but soon I’m going to change all that. I’ve decided that the maintenance is too time-consuming and I want to switch it up a bit by going an easier to handle darker blonde.

As I have been platinum, I’ve had a lot of compliments, some criticisms but I usually get questions. The big two are about the time and if they themselves would suit it. To answer the latter: I think everyone should try going platinum if they want to. Life’s too short and can be too monotonous or overwhelming, just dye your hair! The other questions though need a bit more explaining, so I’ll try to do my best below.

 

I want to preface this by saying I’m in no way a professional. While my mother is, I have just learnt from her and my own experiences.

The Infinity War Trailer Has Been Released And I Have Some Questions

IW

Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped this week and if you think I stayed up late to watch it premiere on YouTube you are absolutely right because that’s what I did. I love the Avengers, the actors portraying them, and I respect the Russo brothers ever since they directed possibly one of my favourite movies of all time, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Kevin Feige is somehow not insane from the amount of stuff he does. I collect the toys, I went to the Marvel Exhibit when it was here and when I have time, I chill out and read some comics. This is what I love, some people don’t get it, but that’s fine because while I’m the most grumpy, possibly cynical person you might meet, it fills me with excitement and joy.

So getting over a trailer might sound ridiculous, but it really isn’t any different from a Star Wars fan getting excited about the next episode, your country making it into the World Cup or a Selena Quintanilla fan happy that MAC paid tribute to the late singer with a collection dedicated to her.

But I have questions. I’m excited, I’m full of dread, I’m curious and I have questions.. and some theories to some questions out there.

 

I want to preface this by saying that these questions are just the-day-afterwards freak out questions that popped into my brain and some of the links in the questions and theories are up for debate as it’s Fort Knox when it comes to info. Also, I haven’t read all of the comics so there might be a lot I’ve missed.

Shit That’s Gonna Get Me Through Summer

Ugh, it’s that time of year again where the Australian summer chokeholds the season and punches the living shit out of anyone standing on this land. In general I actually really like summer but summer here in Australia is a time I dread because it does kick me in my ass physically, so I need to make sure I’m prepared.

Let’s take a deep breath, clutch onto a block of ice, and dive in.
