UGH. I know, guys. I know. I’m slacking with my posting routine. Life has been manic the last couple of weeks, and between work, work experience and having a life in general, I’ve barely had time to think. So you will have to accept my apologies for the lack of quality content today, and settle for … More Tags: The Autumn Tag.
Skeleton makeup seems like a rite of passage amongst beauty bloggers at Halloween, so it’s about time I gave it a go! I’m not too imaginative, so as usual I took to Pinterest for inspiration. There were some really beautiful, spooky and creative variations of the classic skull face, but I decided to plump for … More Makeup Monday: Easy Skull Makeup
One of my favourite Halloween activities is snuggling down at the cinema with a big bucket of popcorn to watch the newest material the horror scene has to offer. However, I’m a bit too wimpy to go on my own, and finding someone to accompany me is getting increasingly difficult. In this scenario, I could … More Film: The Girl On The Train | Review
As much as I love slathering myself with Snazaroo paints and dribbling fake blood all over my face, I know Halloween isn’t all about the freakishly gore-tastic makeup transformations. Loads of makeup brands get dead excited (rightfully so) about the spooky season and unveil vaults of macabre makeup goodies. Here are my favourite picks from years … More Makeup: Magical Makeup Must-Haves

Partly because I’m lazy, partly because I’ve been extremely busy this week, but mostly because it occurred to me that not everyone wants to faff around with liquid latex. Halloween looks using just makeup products that you’ve probably got lying around … More Makeup Monday: Bride of Frankenstein
Despite being a fairly creative person, I am far from blessed when it comes to art and crafts. My GCSE in Art solidified my belief that meticulously cutting and sticking should be reserved for those with endless bounties of patience (in other words, anyone but me), and nowadays, a bit of stress-therapy colouring-in is about as … More Lifestyle: My favourite Halloween DIYs!
For someone who claims to love scary movies, I have managed to miss out on a lot of classics. I have lost count of the amount of times I’ve been partway through a discussion with a fellow horror fan, and they’ve said, “What did you think of such-and-such?” and I’ve sheepishly admitted that I’ve never … More Film: My Halloween To-Watch List
If I am 100% completely honest, I’ve always thought zombies were a bit lame. Dressing up as one for Halloween struck me as a bit of a cop-out — put a few rips in a white Primark T-shirt and dab a bit of black eyeshadow under your eyes and you’re done. Not exactly a lot … More Makeup Monday: Rotting Zombie (Easy SFX)
When the question of fashion trends is introduced, I am the first to raise my hand and admit that I do not have a clue. I try — God bless me, do I try — but I just can’t keep up. A haute couture habit that has therefore followed me from my youth is the … More Fashion: Pretty Peculiar
There are lots of things I love about Halloween, and one of my favourites is the myriad of macabre movies at your fingertips. Whether it’s taking a trip to the cinema to view a new offering, or settling in to watch a classic, what better way to get into the spooky spirit than to scare … More Film: Top 10 Halloween horrors!
