Secret Ghoul 2018

Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒ Tonight I’ll be donning some vampire fangs and getting through as many horror movies as possible. πŸ˜‰ Until then I’d like to talk about Secret Ghoul, a Halloween themed “Secret Santa” and the brain child of Britt from Alternatively Speaking. I simply love the concept – Halloween is my favourite holiday afterall – and enjoyed picking out gifts for my Secret Ghoul over the past few weeks. You can catch other bloggers opening their Secret Ghoul gifts over on Twitter with the #SecretGhoul tag. My Secret Ghoul gifts My Secret Ghoul package arrived Saturday morning from Helen Read More…

Halloween Stationery ft Little Pencil Design

I’ve seen this Halloween stationery mystery bag pop up on Twitter and Instagram quite a bit over the past few weeks and couldn’t resit snapping one up! It’s by Little Pencil Design on Etsy. First up are these Autumn themed cards. The pumpkin is definitely my favourite and they will come in handy for blog photo props over the Autumn period. Next up we have this pumpkin spiced latte design which I originally thought was a badge. I was pleasantly surprised to find it’s in fact a pocket mirror that I decided to send to my Secret Ghoul. πŸ‘» I Read More…

Horror Movie Tag

I love a good horror movie! It’s my favourite movie genre and has been since I saw Gremlins in the early 90s; not that I found it that horrific. Gizmo is cute and the other Gremlins had me laughing out loud. Please tell me I’m not the only one? Since then my love of horror has grown and I have a growing collection of DVDs and some Blu Rays. The gem of my collection is my Hellraiser trilogy box set signed by Pinhead actor Doug Bradley. I met him at Collectormaina London along with Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) in 2011. Read More…

Autumn tag

This year the Autumn equinox happens in the early hours of the morning on Sunday 23rd September and marks the first day of autumn. It’s the time of year when day and night are almost equal in length.
