October has definitely been a busy month for me! I took on a little personal challenge for myself by promising that I will post regularly and work harder to produce content that I can be proud of. I set myself three main goals for the month; to blog more consistently, to broaden the topics that I blog about and to continue to support other bloggers. Working full-time, trying to maintain a gym routine and blogging two times a week has proved to be tricky at times but I feel so good for doing it. I know two times a week…

My Top 10 Halloween Movies

I thought this would be a very apt post for the lead up to the big day of Halloween because one thing I really love to do either on actual Halloween or in the lead up to it is have a scary movie marathon. I thought I’d share my top ten favourite scary films with you as I’m a massive lover of them. Some of these are not really that scary at all but they’re all perfect to watch on Halloween. I’ve watched SO many, it was actually really hard to filter it down to just ten but these are…

3 Easy, Affordable Halloween Make-Up Looks

Dressing up for Halloween is honestly one of my favourite things to do so I’ve come up with three looks that are fairly easy to recreate and don’t require you to break the bank in order to achieve them. These are really great if you’re a student or struggling for money and still want to look like you’ve made some creative efforts. They’re also really good last minute ideas because you can pretty much use resources that you’ve already got or that are easily accessible. Wednesday Addams from ‘The Addams Family’ Wednesday is such a simple look to achieve yet…

Spooky Superstitions

I’m probably one of the least superstitious people ever – however, I do find it pretty interesting to read about what other people believe in and how they shape their lives around superstitions and “old wives tales.” I thought this would tie in nicely as Halloween is on its way and some of these superstitions can really be quite daunting and creepy. Superstitions can really play with peoples’ brains; I remember when I was little and I broke a mirror, I was really upset and worried because I’d been taught to believe you’d get seven years bad luck for doing…

All Things Astrology

I’m sure a lot of us have read our horoscope predictions in the little sections in magazines – some of them can be spookily accurate! I’ve been reading up about Zodiac signs recently and I thought it would be interesting to analyse some typical traits of my own star sign to see whether it proves accurate to my personality. I have found that a lot of these magazine predictions seem to be very broad and could apply to anyone so I wanted to delve into some of the more in depth descriptions. I mean absolutely no disrespect to anyone who…

3 Disney Villain Inspired Make-Up Looks

Anyone who knows me will know that I’m Disney obsessed; my bedroom is full of Disney things and I love nothing more than a Disney movie marathon (kitted out in Disney pyjamas too, of course). I wanted to do another set of make-up looks so I decided to create three different looks inspired by Disney villains that I think would make perfect Halloween looks if you’re struggling for what to dress up as. These looks were so much fun to make, I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them! Ursula “What a lovely little bride I’ll…

What’s Your Biggest Fear?

As Halloween is approaching soon and all things spooky are starting to appear, I thought I’d do a post all about fears and phobias. There are some fears I’ve overcome and some things that still make me cower into a corner. There are things that people are afraid of that I just can’t understand and things that make me sweat with fear that seem really stupid to others. I always find it really interesting to know what different things people are scared of. Cotton Wool Yes, you read that correctly – cotton wool. This is actually something that doesn’t really…
