Update #23 | Picking Our Own Pumpkins!

My week has been a little bit hectic, what with starting a new job - I barely have time to breathe let alone blog at the moment, but I'm trying my best! So yes, this post is a tinsy bit late, but it's still Autumn and pumpkins are still Autumn related so I'll let myself off, haha! Basically I thought I would share some of the photos from a lovely day out I shared with my best friend and Ethan! Me and my best friend kind of have a tradition going that every single year we carve pumpkins together and watch scary movies on Halloween.. it's basically an excuse to eat junk for a whole weekend, haha! I actually documented our cute halloween celebration on the blog last year, so you can see that here if you like. So this year we decided to go and pick our own pumpkins and we had a really lovely day at a local farm getting all autumnal and taking tonnes of photos... and of course carving them in the evening! But yes, I had a really lovely weekend and it was a well needed break just before I started my new job which was nice! Let me know in the comments what you got up to on Halloween, I would love to know!

30 (More) Last Minute DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

So we all know I've been excited for Halloween pretty much since the 1st of September... but somehow it does always seem to creep up on me and every year, without fail, I seem to have to rush over to YouTube to look up some last minute Halloween costumes because I've left it so long! This year I actual don't have anything to dress up for, which makes me incredibly sad (any excuse to dress up and I'm there!) but that won't stop me from browsing Pinterest until the early hours of the morning coming up with costume ideas for the Halloween party I'm not going to, haha! So yeah, this post is for all of you out there who always leave their costumes to the last minute and need a quick DIY costume for that party on Tuesday night! Hopefully you find something quick and easy from my list, but if you need more ideas I actually wrote one of these last year so you'll find 30 more ideas over there! Also, feel free to share your own ideas in the comments - I would love to hear them! 

The Ultimate Halloween Playlist

It's about time I wrote another playlist post, in fact my last playlist post was back in June with my The Ultimate Relaxation Playlist and of course it is Halloween season - so when better to write one than now, right?! I personally have no plans for Halloween (someone please invite me to your party so I have an excuse to dress up!) but that doesn't mean I won't be making an epic Halloween playlist that I will probably be playing to death (pun not intended I promise... lol) from now until the end of October! So yeah, I thought I might share my little Halloween music concoction with you lot! I've tried to add a big mix of songs, that suit everyone who needs background music for carving pumpkins or a good playlist for a Halloween party! Let me know what you think in the comments below and as always feel free to suggest your own songs down there too - I'm sure I've missed some bangers! 

Book Wishlist #2

How has it been two months since my last book wishlist?! I have no idea where that time has gone, but anyways... here I am with another book wishlist post because it's about time I shared a few more of the books that are on my ever growing wish list - I feel like its growing super super quickly recently too, since I have been able to treat myself to any new books recently! (By the way, if you want to see more of the books that are on my wishlist and keep up to date on what I'm currently reading and bits like that we need to be friends on Goodreads - you can find me here!) As you'll know from my recent book posts (like my October TBR and Spooky Book Recommendations) I have been reading purely spooky-ish books this month in celebration of Halloween so, as much as I'm enjoying getting in the spooky spirit, it was quite refreshing to pick out some less scary books to add to this wishlist.. I mean I obviously added a few thrillers because I'm stubborn and completely obsessed with thriller books! Let me know what you're reading or what's on your wishlist in the comments below, so I can add all your favourites to my list - I always love recommendations, even if it means my wishlist is overflowing!
