Tomorrow is Halloween and so I thought I’d share with you what I will be doing. Last year I went to see Alice Cooper for Halloween… he was amazing! Tomorrow I’ll be watching movies. I love a good scary movie and it is a tradition for me to watch spooky, scary, violent kind of movies on Halloween.

Halloween Themed Crafts

halloween themed crafts

I love Halloween even though I don’t usually ‘celebrate’ it in the expected way with dressing up, parties and more. Instead I like to wait until the holiday is over and the Halloween decor is reduced! I have always had a love for skulls and all things spooky and don’t like limiting myself to having it for a short time at a certain point in the year!

However, I realise that a lot of people are not as into having spooky things up and around all year round but still enjoy making and creating things to decorate their homes and serve at Halloween parties and I have found some awesome things around the internet for you to make and enjoy!

Birthday loveliness

Thank you for the lovely birthday wishes, it’s strange to think that I am no longer in my 20s!

On my birthday I had a yummy breakfast of waffles with chopped banana, maple syrup, and sprinkles! Very indulgent, but it only comes once a year, right?

I then had a very relaxing afternoon before getting ready for a nice meal and a get-together with some of my lovely friends. Five of us had food at Pho in Brighton and then went onto the pub where others soon joined us.

I never expect any gifts from people, I’m not really that kind of girl who expects a Mulberry handbag. However, I was super lucky and received some wonderful gifts which were very well thought-out. That’s what really mattered to me, that people made the effort to get me things that they thought I would appreciate, that would be totally me. Alongside these spoils I also received some money towards my new Winter coat (a lush duffle coat from Topshop). I feel so lucky and loved, which are both feelings that I struggle with. I will one day explain why, but at the moment it’s too difficult to come to terms with. Anyhow, I’m sure you’d like to see what I received:

Aren’t I lucky? And if you look closely, you’ll see there are presents which tie up with some of the things on my list to do in the next year!

I know I’m more than lucky. I am learning to love my new life, and I have some great people in it.
