I can’t believe October is finally here! It is, hands down, my favourite month of the year. I love the turning leaves and the chill in the air. I love pumpkin flavoured everything and Halloween decorations. I love dark lipstick and dressing up. It sometimes makes me sad that people in this country don’t really do Halloween like they do other holidays – like Christmas – but don’t worry, I have enough Halloween spirit for all of us. I have a scary-movies-to-watch list as long as my arm, and I’m going to start decorating my flat today. My local poundland closed down (the best place for decorations – boo!) so hit me up with your favourite UK-based spooky decor shops.
I just wanted to check in to say that I have big plans for this month. I always have so many ideas for spooky blog posts and every year I realise I should have started planning earlier. This year I am ready! I think I decided on my costume the day after Halloween last year. Expect lots of DIY costume ideas, recipes, chatty posts and decorations, jarringly interspersed with sunny photos from my trip to California. I hope you have as much fun reading along as I have writing these posts. October, let’s do this!
