7 things to do for Halloween

IMG_2197.jpg

Halloween is so much fun so here are a few ideas of how to celebrate this time of year!

  1. Tulleys farm Shocktober fest Scream park, I went to Tulleys farm this year for shocktober and I had so much fun! It’s basically where you walk around 8 different haunts where people scare you and it is literally the scariest thing ever but it’s also so so much fun. I went with a group of friends and it’s such a great laugh. Tulleys farm is located in Crawley, if you want to find out more go to their website.
  2. Thorpe park fright night, This is said to be really good I’ve never been before but it’s meant to be scary and lots of fun! Basically you go on all the rides that Thorpe park offer but in the dark an there are a few rides only put on for Halloween, their are also actors around the park scaring you! Again it’s a great thing to do with your friends, to find out more head over to their website.
  3. Halloween sleepover, It’s always great to have some friends over and have a big sleepover especially on Halloween! why not grab a scary film and set up a tent in the garden with some popcorn and sweets. Why not decorate the tent and garden with all Halloween decorations, Its a great idea for Halloween fun.
  4. Halloween party, Why not invite loads of friends over and have a big party with decorations and Halloween treats! You can also do loads of Halloween activities and games (no matter what age). This great fun and a really festive idea for this time of year!
  5. Halloween cooking session, Why not make some Halloween treats and find new recipes. This is fun to do on your own or with a friend, It’s funny what crazy ideas you can come up with. And you can always do these ideas for a party or sleepover.
  6. Trick or treat, Obviously this is a really fun thing to do on Halloween. Why not go with some friends, get all dressed up and go around collecting sweets. Its always really fun to walk around chatting and having a good time. It doesn’t take a lot of planning, organising or spending.
  7. Weekend in London, why not spend a weekend doing all of the activities, Halloween related stuff, shopping and going to the cinema! I know this doesn’t sound very Halloween but you can make it as festive as you want if your a big Halloween fan why not book tickets to see a spooky show or go on a ghost bus tour for the fright of your life!

Hope you enjoyed reading this blog post, let me know down below what your doing for Halloween!

Autumn is here! and its time for a new skincare routine so here are few of my favourite products i use for my skincare:

  • Pure clarifying foam wash by body shop ‘drops of light’ – This product is really soft on your skin and makes your skin so much softer and clearer. It really helps to improve the appearance of your skin. I really like how this product can be part of your everyday skincare routine. This is £12 from the body shop.
  • Oils of life facial oil by body shop – This product smells so nice and it feels really nice on your skin. I really like how this oil makes your skin feel really smooth and revitalised. This is from the body shop for £26
  • Oils of life essence oil by body shop – This product is so nice, it really makes skin so much soother and glowing. I like this product because it makes your skin feel very moisturised and makes your skin look healthy which is what you need in the autumn weather. This was £15 from the body shop.
  • tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution by the body shop – This oil is really soft on the face, it helps to make blemishes disappear. I’ve been using this product for a little while now, applying it before i go to bed along with the tea tree oil and i think it really works. My blemishes have reduced if not disappeared. This is £12 by the body shop.

I think it really makes sure that there is not product left on your skin (make up etc..). This is by Clarins for £34, its quite pricey but its really worth it.

My New Room

img_2034

Recently I have newly  decorated my room. The colour scheme is grey, white and copper. I have chosen a variety of styles and textures which all tie in to create a great feel to the room. The reason I chose grey, copper and white is because they all work well together and they are my favorite colours.

Copper fairy lights – The little copper lanterns are perfect to add a little touch of light to your room. They look beautiful at night and through the day as decoration.I brought these from Primark for £6 which i though was a good price considering the quality.

Copper wire bin – This triangle inspired wire bin is rustic and stylish. I brought this for my room because its copper (obviously) but also because its not too big and fits in the corner. I brought this from Matalan for £6 which again i thought was a good price for a high standard of quality.

Copper lamp – This probably one of my favourite items in my room because it looks so modern and also it lights up the room so well. Love that when it’s lit up you can see the bulb in it. I brought this from Homesense for about £19.99.

copper picture frame – This copper picture frame is great for holding memories from time to time. It fits a 7×5″ picture but i just have some urban outfitters booth photos in it. This costs £7.99 from Newlook.

Grey chalkboard shelf – This convenient shelf stores 3 shelves full of stuff, its really handy to put little candles, photos etc… on.  I really like how you can draw on the chalk board at the back and really make it your own. I brought this from Homesense for £29.99.

Paint and wallpaper – I went for 1 wall in white brick wallpaper and the other 3 in grey paint because i think that the white brick wallpaper would be to over powering to have on all 4 walls and i wanted to add a bit of character to the room. The paint is call Quiet Interlude, i’m not sure of the brand but i got it from B&Q. The wallpaper is from http://www.gowallpaper.co.uk   and it was £6 per roll.

Bed spread and pillows – The colourful bedspread adds a splash of colour to the room. The pillows and throw really give the room some decoration. I got the bedspread from Primark in their deluxe cotton range for £16. I got the throw from Primark for £8.

Desk – I love my desk because it folds down to allow more room for sleepovers etc… It’s really practical and I love all the cute shelves. This is where i got it all from:

  • Copper jars are from Paperchase and they were £8.
  • Notebook and pencils are from Burberry
  • Matte copper pen pot from Paperchase for £6
  • Shiny copper pen pot from Matalan for £3
  • Revision cards from Staples and Wilko
  • fairy lights are from Primark for only £1.50
  • White folder basket is from Ikea
  • Desk chair and pillow from Ikea

As I did my room up a few weeks ago I just thought I would share it with you, I hope you enjoyed reading! And if there is anything you can see that i didn’t mention feel free to comment below or on my social medias.
