Happy Halloween- Halloween ThrowBack

Happy Halloween Guys!!!

I don't know if people are probably going to do throwbacks to past Halloween's but I decided that I was going to be different and give you a throwback from when I went to the Warner bro's studio where harry potter was filmed and show you some pictures of all of the props. I also decided instead of having a load of paragraphs to read id leave the tour to your imagination and just show you some photos from the tour but in the right order of how the tour was set out. I hope you find this as exciting as I did so here we gooo....

 I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into the making of harry potter and I would definitely recommend going to the Warner Bro's studio to anyone who is interested. I hope you are all having a great Halloween and  I will be back on Monday with a new post.

Easy Halloween Bat D.I.Y

Hey guys,

Today I thought that I was time for us to do an easy Halloween d.i.y because its getting very close to Halloween and I needed something to get me and hopefully all of you in the mood for some Halloween fun. So today I decided I wanted to make these cool Halloween treat bats, they can also be used as decorations too.

All you need is:

Toilet roll tube
Paper/ Card (preferably black)
Colouring pens/pencils/ Paint ( you can choose which one you want)
Sticky tape

Step 1
Get your toilet roll tube and colour the outside black, you can paint it as well i just chose to colour as you don't have to wait for it to dry.

Step 2
Get a piece of paper/card and a large circular shaped object and draw around it to make two large circles.

Step 3
Then cut the circles out if you need help from an adult then make sure you do.

Step 4
Next fold the circles in half  glue both of the sides together then paint/colour your semi circles in.

Step 5
Get the two half circles and cut half circles out of the straight end of them and that should make your wings.

Step 6
Now we need to bend the top of the toilet paper tube in to the middle so that the bat looks like it has ears.

Step 7
Then put both the wings together and tape them to the back of your bat.

Step 8
Tape them onto the back of the toilet roll tube.

Step 9
Now its time to draw the face on the bat and your done.

If you want to make them into sweet holders then put the sweets inside of it and put some tissue underneath to stop the sweets from falling out. Also you could make a string of bats to hang up but hole punching the sides and putting sting through them.

I hope you like this D.I.Y i tried to make it simple so that everyone can have a go and not feel overwhelmed by how complicated they are. Also if you do recreate this then don't forget to tag me in a picture on instagram my links in the bar at the top of the blog.

Top 5 halloween nail varnishes

Hey guys,

So this Monday I'm going to be talking about five of my most favourite nail varnishes to wear in October to celebrate halloween. These aren't new or high end they are just your average nail varnishes which you can find in any beauty shop.

1. My first halloween favourite nail varnish has to be a black one because its just a basic halloween colour which can go with pretty much any halloween outfit also good for doing a funky halloween design over.

2. The second is a purple glittery one these are always good for the days surrounding halloween as its not too halloweenie but still has the colour purple in it.

3. This third one just screams halloween at me on orange nail varnish would be perfect for a pumpkin themed you could even use nail art pens to draw a pumpkin if you wanted to go all out.

4. These barry m special effects nail varnishes are perfect for around halloween time all you have to do is put a halloween nail varnish colour on say the orange essie one above and then put this one on top to give you a funky little patten and its effortless.

5. The last but not least nail varnish would be great if there is a lot of blood involved in your halloween costume or as another undercoat for a special effects nail varnish.

6. This is kind of a bonus because its not a nail varnish but its just as good its a nail wrap and these can be found in lots of places but i found mine in topshop and i would recommend you all to go look because they don't just do halloween ones i got all sorts of different ones too.

I hope you all like this post and dont forget to come back on friday for my monthly friday favourites with a hint of halloween added to it. This was your Halloween top 5 nail varnishes and i hope you will come back soon. Dont forget to go back and read more posts if you haven't already only 11 days till halloween! Also don't forget to come back on monday to see my spooky Halloween favourites for this month

October Halloween Favourites

Hey Guys,

It's Halloween soon so i decided since I'm dedicating this month to Halloween I will dedicate some of my October favourites to Halloween and autumn too. I've tried to be a little creative with my pictures so I hope you like them.

1. Fiendish Fancies

You may only be able to get these in England but they are one of the best Halloween treats by far they do other kinda throughout the year such as Christmas ones.

2. Topshop Nail Varnish

This is a new purchase which I got this week and I already love it I can see this being one of my staple nail varnishes for the autumn period. I also got a Topshop lip stick and I'm sad to say that I was not impressed by it. I've heard lots of people talk about the Topshop make up range and its definitely let me down.

3. Sharpies

So these Sharpies are something which I have wanted for so long now but could never bring myself to get until now! I'm so glad that i got them they make my desk look colourful and there are a few D.I.Y's which I plan to use them for through out the next few months.

4.Owl Calender

This owl calender is also something i just had to buy I've wanted one of these never ending calendars for a while now and have been tempted to make my own but once I saw this hand crafted wooden owl one I fell in love with it and I will definitely get a lot of use out of it.

5. Cushions

I have gotten a few cushions over the last few weeks and two of them especially have really made me feel a bit autumnal because of the colours patterns and to be honest I just like dogs.

I hope you like my October favourites don't forget to leave a comment with some of your favourite things from October. Don't forget to come back on Monday for some more Halloween fun and don't forget to share this with your friends.

D.I.Y- Design it yourself Halloween Mug

Hey Guys,

So today I came up with a fun and easy D.I.Y that anyone can do and its to design your own Halloween mug. It doesn't matter if you cant draw, I cant and I think I did okay. All you will need is:-

A plain mug (I got white)
An Oven

1. The first thing you do is make sure that you wash your mug so that its nice and clean and ready to draw on.

2. Choose the colours of your Sharpies and a cool design and start drawing. If you do it wrong you can just simply wipe it off and start again.

3. Leave the mug a day or so to completely dry and make sure not to touch it.

4. Put the mug into a cold oven for 30 minutes at 170 degrees

There you have it some pretty cool mugs for your Halloween fun! I think these would be pretty cool gifts for your friends. Be careful when washing them if I was you i'd wash them by hands and be careful around the design. I hope you like this idea if you decide to make these don't forget to post them on Instagram and tag me.

Fall Spice Tag!

Hi Guys,

Today i decided to do the Fall Spice Tag because I love to do a good tag and since most of my other posts are Halloween related I decided that I should do something different even if its still related to the time of year.

1. Favourite Fall lip product?
Well once its fall my lips tend to start getting more dry so I like to use lip balm more than lip gloss or lip stick so this year I'm going to be using body shops Born Lippy range.

2. Red or Pink lips?
I prefer pink lips I don't think I could pull off the red lips.

3. Winged eye liner or bold shadow? 
I don't really wear winged eye liner so I will have to go for bold eye shadow.

4.Natural/ Cold/ Light or Bold/ Warm/ Dark make up? 
I think i prefer Natural/ Cold/ Light make up as like I said not sure I can pull off dark bold colours.

5.Favourite Fall Nail Polish?
My favourite fall nail polish has to be essies Saturday disco fever 

6. Ugg or Moccasins? 
I love the look of moccasins and I've always wanted a pair so probably moccasins plus most people wear uggs nowadays.

7. Fuzzy Socks or Knee High Socks?
One of my most favourite things about fall is the fact that I can wear fuzzy socks so I will definitely go for Fuzzy socks.

8. Favourite Fall accessory?
My favourite fall accessory is basicly anything cosy such as boots, scarf's, socks, hats, gloves.

9. Favourite Fall Food?
My favourite fall food has got to be any kind of warm food maybe like a Sunday dinner with all of the trimmings. 

10. Favourite Halloween movie?
My favourite Halloween movie has to be any of the harry potter films there is a list of my favourite films as another blog post if you would like to go look at it.

11. Apple Pie or Brownies?
I would definitely choose any kind of chocolate dessert as my favourite so it has to be brownies.

12. Favourite Halloween Candy?
I love any kind of candy really so any candy I receive at Halloween time I would be happy about.

13. Halloween Costume this year? 
I don't think I am going to dress up as anything for Halloween but if I was I think it would be cool to be something scary like a zombie.

14. What is your Favourite thing about Fall?
I love the fact it starts to get a lot colder and cosier and that's why its my favourite time of the year apart from christmas.

I tag all the people who read this tag to do this tag, its a fun and quick thing to do on your blog so that people get to know what you like a bit more! Thank you for reading don't forget to come back on Monday to find out what my favourite Halloween movies are!
