With Halloween falling on a Tuesday this year, a night in watching some freaky television or movies seems like the perfect way to get into the (spooky) spirit! I thought I’d better put together a quick list full of recommendations to hopefully spark some inspiration on what to watch come October 31st! This post was originally meant to be a “Halloween Netflix Guide”, but as I was scrolling through what they had to offer, I couldn’t find a bunch of my favourites that I really wanted to feature! So I thought I’d broaden my horizons and recommend some titles that can be found elsewhere. Keep in mind I’m a scaredy cat who found Pretty Little Liars spooky (Alison vanishing from a sleepover, only to be found buried in her backyard, is unnerving, alright!), so don’t expect flicks like Texas Chainsaw or The Conjuring to be featured below. I hope you like this Halloween Night In Watch List, and if you do, don’t forget to give it a “like” so I know!
Is it just me or has there not been heaps of Halloween makeup tutorials popping up on YouTube this year? I remember last year beauty gurus were pumping out the creepy, creative but still cute looks as soon as October rolled around. I have unsubscribed from a handful of YouTubers that I just found myself never watching, so that might be the case. Nevertheless, I have seen some amazing makeup looks for this Halloween season from some of my favourite beauty gurus, and I thought now would be the perfect time to round them all up and share the love! If you enjoy this post or find any of these super creative looks inspiring, give this post a “like” so I know, and let’s get into the tutorials!
As we approach the spookiest day on the October calendar, I thought now would be the perfect time to whip up a batch of Halloween inspired cupcakes to celebrate the season! Whether you’re off to a Halloween party, planning a scary movie night in, or just want to do something festive to mark the occasion, I think these Halloween cupcakes are such an easy yet effective way to get into the (spooky) spirit! I’m a big fan of using packet mixes from our good friend Betty Crocker, and since my Christmas Tree Brownies received so much positive feedback (both online and in real life) and my Valentine’s Day Brownies managed to rack up 458 likes here on WordPress, it’s clear others do too! So I decided to stick with that method for another holiday. Keep reading to find out how I made these Halloween cupcakes, and if you enjoy this post, please give it a “like” so I know!
As the university semester comes to a close (!!!!) and I begin to be granted with the luxury of free time, I’ve found myself getting back into reading! Whenever I’m studying I never have the energy to read for fun, but as soon as the holidays roll around, the ‘To Read’ stack of books on my bedside table just gets bigger and bigger. Since it’s the spooky season, I thought it’d be nice to pull together some books I think are pretty appropriate for this time of the year. I’m very reluctant to call this a ‘Halloween Reading List’ as there is no horror or gore here. But there are magical novels featuring witches and wizards, a science fiction world I would hate to live in, a young adult series about a friendship group plagued by a social media stalker, and suspenseful as heck thrillers featuring some absolutely kick ass female characters that kept me on my toes the whole time. If you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know, and let’s get on with the reading list!
As the weather stays gloomy and drizzly (which is actually my favourite) and the season gets spookier, a little Lush Cosmetics haul just seems appropriate! Lush is well known for releasing limited edition collections around the holidays, such as Easter, Halloween and especially Christmas. In fact, when I bought these products yesterday, half the display was filled with Christmas items already! My university semester is coming to a close, which means thankfully more time to relax, and more excuses to treat myself! I have been debating picking up a bunch of spooky, seasonal picks from Lush and yesterday finally popped a few items into my basket!

I know it’s only the 4th of October but we’ve officially entered the month of Halloween which means it’s time to get festive! I have so much Halloween content planned for the next few weeks, so naturally I’m kicking things off with some makeup picks I think are perfect for the spooky season! From their gothically gorgeous packaging to their burnt orange and vampy shades, these makeup picks just scream Halloween to me! Plus, while the rest of the world embraces everything there is to love about Autumn, I’m using Halloween as an excuse to rock the copper eyeshadows and dark lips that are also super Autumnal!

September is done and dusted and frankly I’m quite happy to wave it goodbye! The first half of my month was filled with dread and anxiety in the lead up to completing two weeks of prac for university, and the second half was surviving it (which I actually enjoyed! So much unnecessary stress!) Between all of that however, I was able to become obsessed with some new additions to my wardrobe, discover some new beauty favourites, finally buy some accessories I have been debating over for months and reached another blogging goal of mine!
