Happy Halloween! 🎃

Today is Halloween. A night to dress up, a night for frights, scary movies and lots and lots of sweets. I love Halloween and love the whole concept of dressing up and eating lots of sweets – as I’m sure everyone does! Thought I’d do a little blog post all about what I’ve been up too and in the Halloween spirit it’s all about, yes you guessed it – HALLOWEEN! 🎃

Growing up Halloween was never really a big thing – mainly because it wasn’t really celebrated in Germany. I remember one year going to my friends house and her mum cooked up a Halloween feast which included black spaghetti with bright green carbonara sauce, we then watched The Orphan and I kept my friend awake for the rest of the night because I was absolutely terrified. It also didn’t help that we were staying in her basement!

Every year I look forward to Halloween purely because I jump at any chance to dress up. I love it. Give me a theme night any day of the week and I will happily plan it out and be so extra. First year of Uni and I got these cool eyelashes from Claire’s. Half way through the evening and many compliments on them later, I realised they were glow in the dark! What a dream. Last year I dressed up as a fallen angel and had some awesome blue contact lenses that freaked everyone out. It was amazing. This year was a bit different. I’ve only just started my new job so planning outfit choices was the least of my worries – until I realised I had no plan and the countdown to Halloween drew closer. I panic bought a cute bat costume and honestly it was the best decision of my life. It was so comfy and just looked great! To top it all off I LOVE figuring out what to do with my hair and makeup. Pinterest was my best friend for a good couple days so that I could figure out how best to look like a bat for the Halloween Party. The day of and my friend Imogen and I were experimenting with different styles and I was having a blast.

d the best time at this Halloween party and it was so cool to see what costumes other people had on! I mean check out my friend Izzie’s latex face wound!

On another Halloween related note – I think I might’ve mentioned that I unwittingly signed up for the Bake Off at work which happened to be today – i.e. Halloween. I thought how best to celebrate than by decorating my all time fave cupcakes (Pumpkin Spice) with different spooky decorations and icing. So last night after work I made 24 and iced them in bright green, orange and black icing. I then found these really cool cake toppers from Waitrose and began decorating them. I had SO much fun doing this, you don’t understand how much fun I had. It was weird haha. They turned out so well and I was so proud of them when I took them to work today. Not sure how well I did in the Bake Off but got so many lovely comments about them I don’t really mind if I win or not. Check them out!

*Disclaimer – this is just a lil summary of some films I like to watch around this time of year. It is in no particular order and there are probably a million other films but these are my 5 fave*<<
ending my Halloween watching Mindhunter on Netflix and trying not to freak myself out. I am terrible with scary films and avoid them like the plague, but I’m really enjoying this series! I’m also highly aware that it’s a tv show not a movie and it’s not actually scary but also I am the worlds biggest scaredy cat ever! <<
w are you spending your Halloween??
