Fangirl Favourites – October 2015

It’s crazy to think it’s already the end of October! Luckily, we’ve had quite a nice month of Fall weather here (which isn’t typical for us) and I’ve been doing my best to enjoy it while it lasts. It’s also Halloween tomorrow, which you all know by now is my favourite day of the year! So all in all this month has been a good one, but enough of my small talk let’s get to it shall we?

Fangirl Favourites is where I share with you all the nerdy things I loved this month – shops, blogs, comics, products, and whatever else I’ve been obsessing over. So check out what I loved in October:

Lumberjanes Vol. 2

I love Lumberjanes, I think it’s one of the best comics out there right now and volume 2 definitely didn’t disappoint. What’s not to love about a group of smart, sassy girls with awesome one-liners having fun and getting into trouble while away at camp? Also there are dinosaurs….sooo…

Quill and Fox – Stationary and Cards

I absolutely love all the cards and stationary from Quill and Fox (they also have an Etsy Shop), they’re so adorable and unique. I’ve been admiring their stuff for a couple of months now and some of my favourites are the terrarium postcards, and typewriter hello cards. I will definitely be getting some of my Christmas cards from them this year.

Lore Podcast

I only listen to a couple of podcasts, but this is one of my favourites. Lore is a podcast featuring real life scary stories, often ones that we can see repeated throughout history. What I love about this podcast is that unlike many of the similar podcasts out there, Aaron Mahnke does extensive research to find scary stories throughout history; things that repeat in different cultures, time periods, etc… stories that definitely make you wonder. Lore is typically a bi-weekly podcast but there have been weekly episodes this month to celebrate Halloween, so you have lots to catch up on!

…because what is Halloween without the Halloweentown movies?

That’s it for this month’s favourites. Let me know in the comments what you’ve been loving this month, and most importantly HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  1. Ohhhh that Lore podcast sounds AMAZING! I’m a folklore minor so naturally that’s appealing.

    I have yet to get LumberJanes 2 from the library. But I absolutely adore the first one and look forward to enjoying another.

    Are you dressing up for Halloween this year?!

    1. You DEFINITELY need to check out Lore.
      I’m not dressing up this year. I may go buy a Halloween shirt to hand out candy in though and I’ve had my nails painted with spider webs all week. I’m totally dressing up next year and I want to be Hannah from Rat Queens so in going to have to start planning g my costume like next month. Haha!
      Are you dressing up?
