Yes, it’s V depressing to be back in school but there’s also a lot to get excited about now that it’s officially autumn – be still our beating Halloween heart!
Here are some of the things to look forward to this autumn…
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
We are mega excited for the arrival of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Sabrina Spellman must reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting evil forces. So far a lot of the details have been kept very hush, hush but there is talk that it will exist in the same world as Riverdale. Both shows have the same creator and mention has been made of Greendale in Riverdale in the past. The full series will drop on Netflix on October 26, so it will be perfect Halloween Break viewing material. We’ll have more details as we get them!
Another TV show that were are excited to see is Legacies. Stay with us on this; it’s a spin-off of The Originals, which was a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries. The show will revolve around Hope Mikaelson, aka Klaus’s daughter. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are two HIGHLY underrated shows. Both are on Netflix, so now you have an excuse to binge-watch both. Legacies premiers October 25, 2018 in the US, but no word when it will air in Ireland. We feel like TG4 will get it, as they aired The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
Autumn is traditionally a very busy time in the movie world as most highly anticipated films drop between October and December to be in the run for the Oscars.
Crazy Rich Asians
Yes, we mentioned Crazy Rich Asians before and hyped up a August release date, but for reasons unknown the release date in the UK and Ireland was changed multiple times. But missy.ie has confirmed that it will be released in Irish cinemas on the 14th of September. There’s been a lot of talk about this movie. Some have called it the saviour of the rom-com genre, others are obsessed with the fashion and it’s also important to note that this is a huge moment in representation in film. Seriously, read the books ASAP!
Crazy Rich Asians is out 14th September.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
We say this as HUGE Harry Potter fans; we weren’t super hyped for the first movie in the Fantastic Beasts series. BUT The Crimes of Grindelwald looks really, really good. We are excited to see where the series goes because Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them felt more like a foundation movie to get the series rolling and away from Harry Potter.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is out 16 November.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
If Mackenzie Foy looks a bit familiar to you, that’s because she played Renesmee Cullen in Twilight. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is going to try expand on the much-loved Tchaikovsky’s ballet, The Nutcracker. It looks like fun and it will definitely be a great way to start getting in the festive spirit.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is out 2 November.
Mary Queen of Scots
Our very own Saoirse Ronnan might just finally be set for Oscar glory with her turn in Mary Queen of Scots. Margot Robbie co-stars in a very unfortunate get-up, but points for accurate history!
Mary Queen of Scots is out 18 January.
The book relates are kinda quiet towards the end of the year but there are a few worth noting. First up is My Mum Tracy Beaker, which is out 4 October. This probably means very little to you but Team Missy was super excited when this landed into our offices a few months ago. You see Tracy Beaker and basically all books by its author, Jacqueline Wilson, made up our early teen years. We highly recommend that you give the original book, The Story of Tracy Beaker, a read. The series was really beloved and was even made into a TV show.
Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and other lies) is also out the 4th of October. This is a collection of essays about what feminism means to various women. Some contributors to the book include Emma Watson, Zoe Sugg, Keira Knightley, Saoirse Ronan, Tanya Burr, Kiernan Shipka and many more.
Seriously, bury us in autumn trends! We are very excited to dig out the autumnal makeup. We are here for the return of Berry Lips. Also expect to see blue and purple eyeshadows. Keep an eye on missy.ie to see how to create wearable looks of these trends.
You’ll also start to see a lot of the Christmas sets appearing in shops pretty soon. Keep an eye out to grab a good bargain, but be careful with sets that just give you miniature sizes. Yes, its fun to try new things, but we’re all about genuine value here at missy.ie. If we see anything that’s worth while we’ll update you on our Insta!
Urban Decay will also release their Naked Cherry Palette. No word yet on a release date but we think mid-October.
Dont @ us, but we are of the opinion that Autumn/Winer fashion is the best. Soz, Summer! You just can’t beat being snuggled up in oversized jumpers. And there is serious joy to be had from selecting a winter coat. Don’t even get us started on scarves!
The good news for your bank balance is that a lot of the trends from last year are still big news this year. There’s still lots of tartan and teddy coats, as well as lots of corduroy.We’ve already hyped the return of Dr. Martens and believe us, mustard yellow is going to be everywhere.
