Happy Halloween!

Monday, October 31, 2016

Happy Halloween! I hope you all have a spooktacular day whatever it is that you have got planned. I've spent my day with a recruitment agency in a mock assessment centre, as I'm applying for placements this year it's been a practice day to get a taste of what it's like to be assessed by real graduate recruiters - Scary!! Besides today's genuine scary experience, here's a list of everything that I simply love about Halloween.

  • The food - Halloween food is simply the best. It's the one day of the year where you're able to get free candy kids so make the most of it! Give me all the Mr Kipling fiendish fancies please, yum! Check out my easy, no bake chocolate bark recipe here.
  • Crazy makeup - If there's any time to get creative with makeup then of course, it's Halloween. From colourful, glittery sugar skulls to spooky ghosts and ghouls, our faces become true works of art. If you've created any Halloween makeup looks this year I would love to see them, so feel free to leave any links in the comments below!
  • Pumpkin carving - And if creative makeup wasn't enough creativity in a day for you then it's time to get crafty and give your pumpkin a unique look. Last week I went pumpkin picking for the first time which was so much fun, you can read all about that here.
  • Movie night - If you don't have any plans to go out this Halloween then it's the perfect excuse for a cosy movie night on the couch. Grab some snacks, popcorn and cosy blankets and get ready for a spooky night in.
  • Dressing up - As a kid I used to get so excited about throwing on my princess frock for the night and then going around trick or treating. Although I'm too old for a night of trick or treating it's always fun to get myself dressed up for a night out. You can never go wrong with a cat outfit, a simple black jumpsuit, throw on some ears, draw on some whiskers paired with a golden smokey eye and bang, done! 

What are your favourite things about Halloween? Do you have any plans to celebrate tonight?!
