♥ The Halloween Tag ♥




Heyy guysss!!! So here is the first Halloween post of the year!! I can't believe its Halloween next week it seems to have come so quickly and I don't feel fully prepared just yet so I thought for todays post I would do The Halloween Tag!
This post is actually a collab with the amazing blogger:

So be sure to check out her post too as her blog is great!
Also If your interested in doing a collab just comment down below or email me at pastelskiesx@gmail.com

Anyways lets begin with the post :)



1. What is your favourite Halloween movie?

Ill be honest I'm not the best with Halloween films I get scared really easily! I have managed to sit through a few scary films such as insidious 3, Ouija, The others, Carrie but to be honest I do love a bit of Halloween town or even hotel transylvania (yes I'm That person...)

2. On a scale from 1-10, how much do you enjoy Halloween?

Maybe an 8 or 9 because I love it but you can't possibly beat Christmas!

3. What is your
best Halloween memory?

I remember when we were younger and we were finally old enough to be allowed out trick or treating alone (even though we only went down the street and back!) We were soo excited and were really looking forward to it. When we got to around the middle of the street we came to the house that no one ever knocked at as it was always dark and never had any decorations or lights on, but today as we were alone we thought we would go up ad knock on the door. After a minute or two the door flew open and an old woman flew out screaming at us to get off her property and we all ran away screaming! Scariest moment of my life.




4. Have you always been a Halloween lover?


Yes definitely my parents used to throw a Halloween party every year when I was younger and we would all eat hot dogs and dress up then we would all be given a plastic pumpkin to collect sweets in and as soon as we got back we would sit around and stuff as much in our mouths as we could..... I guess not much has changed.


5. How do you get into the Halloween spirit?


I think the best way to get into the Halloween spirit is to of course have a nice bath with a lush Halloween bath bomb (as I'm obsessed with lush) Listen to Halloween music and watch scary films with friends. And of course going to Halloween themed places like scary mazes or farms are always fun!



6. Favourite Halloween decorations?

Definitely pumpkins!! I literally love carving pumkins theres something about it I'm just obsessed with! In fact when I was younger I won a prize for the best pumpkin carving so that might be why I love it so much! (also fairy lights are pretty much a winner all year round)

7. Favo
urite halloween/fall scent?

I think my favourite Halloween scent has to be toffee apples they taste and smell great.

8. Favo
urite Halloween candy?

I really love crunchies, skittles and scream eggs (which are Halloween versions of cream eggs) there so amazing!



9. Vampires
, werewolves or zombies?

Werewolf definitely because there basically like a dog and dogs are so cute!


10. What is your weird
est fear?

This is actually really weird but when I'm drying my hair or in the shower or something like that were I either can't hear very well or have my eyes closed I feel like somethings going to pop up and attack me (really weird I know)



11. Would you rather go to a Halloween party or go trick or treating?

BOTH! but if I had to pick probably the Halloween party because I'm guessing they will have nice food and sweets anyway.. (I'm a genius to be honest)

2. If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), what would you pick?


Definitely either a black cat or an owl because black kittens are sooo cute and owls are cute too and I might be able to train it to bring me mail like in harry potter... (definitely enough questions)Image result for harry potter owl


Well that's all for this post!
I really hope you enjoyed and hope it got you into the Halloween spirit.

♥ Autumn Haul ♥




Hey guys, so today I'm going to finally make a start on my autumn blog posts!!! So to start off this series of posts I'm going to be doing an autumn haul. In my opinion there's absolutely nothing better than adding some autumnal touches to your bed room and wardrobe when the autumn season starts to make yourself feel cosy and festive (I'm pretty sure festive isn't the right word but you know what I mean!) Anyways lets begin!





Cosy Corner
So were going to start off with this lovely 'cosy corner' idea which is simply just some mini autumn things to make your room look extra autumnal! So I decided to go with an orange, gold theme because these are definitely the first colour I think of when I think of autumn. I actually got all of these products from new look and I think they look super cute together and the candle smells absolutely incredible and fills my whole room with a sweet caramel scent. I also think the plant is really cute as its nice to have a little green in your room (even if it is fake, I mean I definitely cant be trusted with a real one!) And then of course your can personalise the photo frame by adding photos of you and your friends, family or pets or you can even just leave it as it is with the cute quotes inside, as I do think the colours complement eachother really well (definitely not because I'm too lazy to change the photo.....) Moving on!






Fairy Lights
Next on the list is of course.... FAIRY LIGHTS!!!! Now to be honest I'm pretty sure this is an obvious one, I mean is it even autumn without fairy lights? I managed to actually find some copper fairy lights from new look to wrap around my bed which leaves a cute warm glow of patterns on my wall which is super cozy! I also got some yellow fairy lights from Next home, to go around my window frame because you can never have too many fairy lights.




Bed Sheets
And last but not least for my bedroom decorations is of course new bed sheets and cushions! I think these sheets I got from Next home are really cute and autumnal as they have lovely orange and red colours along with a leaf and flower pattern! And also just look how cute that little hedgehog is!





Shoes and Socks
Now moving onto clothes! I know shoes aren't technically clothes but oh well.... I got these heeled shoes from topshop and thought that pairing them with these frilly sock would look really cool. I was really in need of some shoes that weren't converse and thought these would go really well with some black jeans or even a skirt and to be honest I LOVE them!




Woolly Hat
Next on the list is this pretty simple black beanie from Top shop. I know its not the most exciting hat but I actually didn't have a woolly hat last year and this year I just had to buy one. I think its kind of an essential during autumn and winter and not only does it make a cool accessory but its great for bad hair days! And of course the fluffy pom-pom looks quite cute (I know I'm using that word way too much In this post!)







And finally just to finish off this post with the most cosy and fluffy items EVER! I got both the bunny slippers and animal dressing gown from next and I can safely say they are the softest thing ever. And I think its just really nice to treat yourself to new slippers and a dressing gown for winter so you have something to shove on in the morning when its absolutely freezing and the thought of getting out of bed and going into the freezing world is too much to bare, and I would definitely recommend these ones!

Anyway that's all for this post
Hope you enjoyed

♥ My Trip To Greece! ♥




Hey guys...

Sorry its been so long since my last post I promise I didn't forget about this blog!!

In other news I've started sixth form! I will definitely be doing a blog post all about that because there is so much to share but for now I thought the best way to make a return to this blog is to share some photos from my trip to Corfu in Greece!!
