Halloween isn’t something I’ve ever taken seriously in terms of the decor side of things, but now I have my own place to fill with cute, unnecessary decorations, why not? Halloween is just one of many excuses of which I am using to justify my excessive obsession with turning our home into some sort of seasonal exhibition. In all honesty the sad reality is that I wish it was acceptable for a twenty-one year old to dress up and go trick or treating, so you could say that this is merely a form of compensation.
I picked up these gorgeous little tea light holders from Poundland, much to Darryl’s relief, as I’d almost spent £12 on two Yankee Candle ones which looked pretty much exactly the same. To go with those, I found a huge double-wick Halloween candle in B&M for £2.99, which has the prettiest detail ever. To add to the halloween festivities I got this adorable halloween bunting for our kitchen/living area. At £2 each from Waitrose, this was a bit of a pricey (and pointless) investment, but three tea light holders didn’t scream Halloween enough in my opinion, no pun intended.
And what is Halloween without LUSH Cosmetics goodies? I popped by the Milton Keynes store a few days after the blogging event and it was absolutely heaving in there. People snatching up bath bombs and melts left, right and centre, so I’m so glad I managed to get the Pumpkin Bath Bomb as I’d had my eye on this for weeks. Although the Northern Lights Bath Bomb is technically a Christmas product, it reminds me of fireworks, so with Bonfire Night creeping up this wasn’t one I was going to leave behind. A LUSH bath is seriously overdue, so I don’t expect these will be hanging around for long.
Halloween itself will be just another day at work for me, but with the help of these little Halloween goodies I’ll be feeling a little more involved this year. Plus, this has given me all the inspo for when we have a bigger home in the future. I’m going Kris Jenner style on decorations. Next up, Christmas decoration shopping…
