Each year, millions of people attempt to stop their deadly habit. E-cigarettes are becoming increasingly popular, which I think is great. Sure it's not the same as quitting all together, but apparently e-cigarettes are 95% better for you than normal cigarettes!
As it's edging closer to December, I feel it's safe enough to mention the 'C' word, non? In the spirit of getting all Christmassy and trying to steer clear of the commercial side of Christmas, a few of us have got together to venture though the Christmas month making and baking to celebrate the festive period.
#Christmaslittlemakes is all about making and crafting with our little ones as well as making our homes look seasonal with some grown up crafts too! Holly from LittlePicklesMom, Fee from OneofEachMeandMine and Sarah at WhimsicalMumblings would love you to join up any seasonal craft posts, new or old to savour this Christmas period! We have come up with a few themes for inspiration, but please don't feel bound by them! Link up any Christmassy craft you like! #Christmaslittlemakes will be running, with the following themes on.... 26th: Light, 3rd Dec: Sparkles, 10th Dec: Star,
17th Dec: Snow

Welcome back to my Film Fan Friday series, asking fellow bloggers a few questions about their taste in movies! Another week, another awesome guest. This week it's Lauren from Lauren Catherine.
#1 What are your top three favourite films of all time?
3, only 3? Right.
1. 'Walk the Line', based on Johnny Cash.
2. 'Silver Linings playbook', I actually preferred the film than the book. And that's rare for me to say. 3. 'The Perks of being a Wallflower', deals such hard hitting topics and portrays them brilliantly. That soundtrack but. Unreal.
#2 What is your favourite movie genre?
I wouldn't say I had a favourite genre, I love a bit of everything. Looking at my DVDs like they range from 'The Grinch' to 'The Dark Knight' trilogy!
#3 Do you remember the first 'grown up' film you watched?
I remember watching the film 'Beaches' with Bette Midler, I couldn't even tell you what age I was tbh. I can't even deal with this film, even thinking of the song 'wind beneath my wings' which is in the film, makes me want to gurn like a baby.
#4 Have any movies ever made you cry? If so, what? Or what makes you cry every time you watch it?
Well along with 'Beaches' it's hard to get me to cry at films. I'm not a big cryer when it comes to films, unless I can resonate with the plot. But 'Jack Frost' and 'Marley and Me' my heart.
#5 What is the scariest film you have ever seen?
I actually haven't watched that much horror films. But I remember going to see the first 'Insidious' back in 2011, I was only 15/16 that was just a weird film looking back.
#6 If there was a film based on your life, who would play you?
Anyone? Can I have Emilia Clarke, I wish looked like her because damn. She just seems like such a fab person.
#7 What would be the opening song on the soundtrack, to the movie about you?
Imagine a movie opening up to 'Hotel California' by the Eagles'. Don't worry there I have a meaning behind, it was one of my Daddy's favourite bands.
#8 Harry Potter or Disney?
What kind of question is this? I can't even pick between them, soz. They are just both of my favourite things to exist.
#9 If you had a dinner party, which 3 film characters would you invite?
I was going to look through some of the films I've watched on Netflix or something, now all of a sudden I purchased some stuff online, internet. First character would for sure have to be Groot from 'Guardians of the Galaxy' why not, Katniss from 'The Hunger Games' she's just bad ass. Buddy from 'Elf' I'd have a laugh with him.
#10 What's the very last film you watched? Did you enjoy it?
I watched 'Dirty Dancing' I love this film, it's brilliant. One of my favourites as well.
Thank you so much Lauren! Silver Linings Playbook is definitely in my top 5. I love it so much! Haha, that Harry Potter/Disney question really throws people! :)

"Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons has found that the younger generation have a few things to learn about food provenance. Research conducted by Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons has revealed that a shocking one in five children don’t know that milk comes from cows and almost a third of children believe a cow’s diet consists of sandwiches and pizza."

Now the weather's getting a bit cooler, and Winter's coming, it can be harder to get out, and visit places, go exploring! Here at Whimsical Mumblings, we do spend time indoors, snuggling up, making crafts or other fun activities, but we do make sure we make an effort to go on a exciting day out at least once a week! Wearing our cosy jumpers, coats & scarves, all wrapped cosy and going for adventures!
