PUMPKIN CARVING



Hello everyone! It's pumpkin carving time at last!

I was at uni for Halloween last year and my pumpkin only lasted a few hours before my housemate threw it out a second floor window, so this year I wanted to be a bit more precious with my gourd.




Sam and I picked up our pumpkins from Asda, lined up our tools and got ready to go.


We scavenged the innards and left them rotting on a table.



Before moving on to the real carving!

I went for a Sailor Moon inspired pumpkin this year in homage to a friend's excellent snapchat and Sam went for something a bit more traditional but no less charming.

Have you carved a pumpkin yet? Get a move on!

Until next time,

Steph

HALLOWEEN HUNTING

Untitled #91

Hello everyone!

If you've been following my blog for a while you may be aware that I am a severe planoholic. If I know there is an event on the horizon I will start planning for it weeks in advance, and in this case I'm talking about Halloween. You guys, I love Halloween. After weeks of trying to act chill and not too obsessed, I figured a week before the day was a reasonable enough time to start chasing down the things I'll need for my costume. For me, this meant yellow contacts, blue body paint and a jumpsuit (among other things).

Can you guess what I'm going as?

I'll keep you posted!

DOWN BY THE WOODS

Untitled #90


This time of year it's hard to go anywhere without finding a leaf crackling underfoot. Personally, I look forward to seeing the pavements filled with auburn shades, but there's nothing quite like an Autumn walk through the woods. 

My dad lives in the countryside and I plan to venture into the wilderness before the weather gets too grotty, but until I get a chance I thought I would post a few of my woodland-inspired favourites from in the shops. Deer print seems to be popping up a lot lately, and I think it works as a kind of more ladylike leopard print, and I can't be the only to have noticed that the outdoors are making an appearance in interiors these days. Asda and Primark, random choices as they may be, have tons of woodsy homeware to help bring the forest inside without dragging in a family of squirrels and ants (I know I have a few items saved in my basket).

Until next time,
Steph
