On Friday 30th March, I was lucky enough to attend a special advanced screening at Hoyts Belconnen of the scary new movie A Quiet Placestarring The Office's John Krasinski and his wife The Devil Wears Prada's Emily Blunt.
Finding a creepy horror movie is getting harder and harder to do. Instead of relying on jump scares and gore, moviegoers are now looking for the suspense of a thriller with a unique new horror story.

For Halloween one year I put together brain and skull cupcakes and I was pretty damn proud of them. Check out the recipe below so that you can make your own - but please note, I made these cupcakes before I turned vegan which is why there is eggs and butter listed in the ingredients. Nowadays I whole-heartedly suggest using a vegan egg substitute and Nuttlex instead of butter - let's save the animals some pain!
