  1. You so cute! ♥ Great wrap-up. I love that you include the movies you watched! I’ve slowly been getting back into watching movies once or twice a week so I’m considering starting to add them to my wrap-up posts, too, especially as fall approaches because I always watch a lot of horror flicks in the fall.

    1. Thank youuu! ❤ I never used to watch movies, so now that I'm getting into them, I think it's fun to include them. You definitely should include yours! I'd love to see what you watch and what you think. 🙂

      1. I started using Letterboxd a little while ago! It’s basically Goodreads for movies and I find it really helpful for figuring out what I watched when and what my thoughts were. You can even use tags and make lists. 🙂
