Never guess who jumped on the pumpkin picking bandwagon?? Yes that is me but in my defence I love halloween & I think pumpkin picking is a must do activity for this time of year. On another note I didn’t realise how close local farms were to my house & now I’ve got an excuse to go pick my veggies.
Anyhow shall we get on with the post? Here’s my five favourite things about halloween …
Can we really talk about halloween without mentioning pumpkins? It’s not like this post is a bit overloaded with them; not at all! But I’m a huge fan of seasonal produce as weird as that sounds, I just love when seasons change & it’s all about that one thing. Halloween is all about pumpkins being in their prime & even though I don’t particularly like eating them, they just make the season fun. From picking to carving them they are a great excuse just to let your inner child run wild.
I’m not one to head on a night out over halloween; I feel like I’ve attempted way too many nights out for them to end badly. It’s just way to busy on halloween for you to enjoy your night. I am much more excited to make a few cocktails & have a Tim Burton movie marathon. You can’t enjoy halloween without a bit of Burton & his movies just sum up the festivities. If you love Burton I definitely suggest you heading to midnight & lace to see her Burton babes series (here).
If you didn’t notice from my previous post; I love halloween style tattoos. It’s that time of year when all the artists I follow seem to get really creative & just draw the most beautiful designs. Obviously it’s that time of year when I get a bit more inspired too & I end up getting a few new additions. I definitely enjoy the darker style of tattooing & it’s a great time to find a few inspo images for your next pieces.
Halloween & Christmas are the times of year when you get to transform your home into something a little more fabulous than it’s usual self. I’m definitely one to opt for halloween decor over Christmas & I think it just makes your home look amazing. I love seeing everyones posts on Instagram of their spooky set ups & who doesn’t love a good creepy fireplace display?
Finally you can’t talk about halloween without discussing the amazing make-up that comes about this time of year. People have such talent & you get a chance to see people get creative. From simple designs to full on special effects people just amaze me. I’m not the most talented make-up artist but even I can make a little bit more effect this time of year!
So this is my final post in my blogoween series & I hope you’ve enjoyed. I haven’t been writing too much but I want to keep them short & sweet. I honestly can’t believe that October is over & now we’re in that mad rush up to Christmas. The thought of organising myself for Christmas is scaring me but I may do a bit of blogmas if I’m feeling inspired.
Hope you all enjoy your spooky celebrations this evening!!
