Things I love about Halloween!

Hello, Hello, Hello…I know I haven’t blogged in a while and that is because I had my birthday on 12th October (I am 20 now!) and I have been doing a lot of university work and also as you mostly all know I write for a few magazines as a freelance journalist on the side to gain experience and add to my portfolio so both of those things are hectically time consuming! Sorry! But I am back and I will try to blog a bit more so stick around 🙂

So for my post I thought I would choose the topic of Halloween, which is a pretty obvious one since it is October! I think October is probably my favourite month followed by December as it’s all frosty and leafy and just all round cosy 🙂 But back to my topic of blog post, so I thought I would do things I love about Halloween! So lets start…

1. Candy Apples/Caramel Apples/Toffee Apples – So delicious! Although I prefer the caramel outside rather than the actual apple.

2. Pumpkins – Who doesn’t enjoy a good pumpkin carving? Inside the pumpkin smells a little but once you get past all the seeds and gooey bits it is pretty fun to carve a little face into it and I love how it looks all spooky when the candle is lit inside.

3. All the shops, stores and houses get prepared for Halloween – Fake cobwebs, pumpkins, fake zombies, pretend tombstones, spiders, bats and blood everywhere!

4. Candy Corn – Something I found like a year ago, it is an American sweet that we don’t have over in England but we can find it in some special American sweet shops here and they taste amazing!

5. Dressing up – Although I dress up for Halloween a lot less than when I was a child and people’s choice of outfits may have changed into more mature selections I still love to dress up and be all spooky if I can.

So that’s what I love about Halloween! What about you?

OOTD for the summer sunshine

So today has been very warm here in England and very sunny for a change so I decided to take a chance and leave my coat at home crossed my fingers it wouldn’t rain and went out in a polka dot dress! This is a dress I got a few years back and it still fits which is great, it’s black with beige polka dots and cute little brass buttons at the front.
I actually brought this dress from Primark for around about £3 a couple summers ago so for £3 it’s lasted me a good while which is always great if something lasts for ages after you brought it! You can pretty much wear it with anything, but today as I was in a rush I went for black tights and cardigan – Not very bright but a good outfit all the same. If I had more time it probably would’ve been brighter and bolder but when your in a rush it’s hard to choose things that match as well as colour co-ordination! Hope you all enjoy 🙂

Summer Favourite: Festival/Boho

This is one of my favourite trends that is making its comeback this Summer and I love it! I really love the laid back relaxed festival boho look – What I really love about this look is that it can be interpreted in different ways and people can make it what they want it to be, it has so much room for adventure and bravery with regards to new outfits and such which makes it a really great look that anyone can pull off, even if you’re not going to a festival!

So I put together a little collaboration of all the sort of things that would/could make a great boho or festival look! Enjoy 🙂

Sunday Wishlist!

So I  decided that it was long overdue and  I should do a blog post about some items that are on my wishlist that I really want and share it with you all! 🙂 So let it begin…

I really want to get: 

  1. A cute little satchel or backpack with a nice design because it is very summery, I already have a black and white patterned one similar to the pictured one but another wouldn’t hurt! I love satchels but sometimes backpacks are cuter and more convenient.
  2. Some Aztec patterned clothing because this Summer Aztec is a very hot and popular trend 🙂
  3. I’d like to find some really beautiful headbands, I personally love headbands Summer or winter and I think they look really pretty! The ones I am specifically wishing for are something like Tribal/Native American/Festival or Boho 🙂
  4. Lastly I really would like to buy a long skirt for Summer, perhaps a sheer one in a nice burnt orange or crisp burgundy! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed my little Sunday wishlist! 🙂 (All photo’s from Google & WeHeartIt)
