Secret Ghoul 2018

Happy Halloween! 🎃 Tonight I’ll be donning some vampire fangs and getting through as many horror movies as possible. 😉 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 at Teainthetub. I was excited to open the parcel and loved all the items she picked out for me. The hand written note was a lovely touch. 😊

The first parcel was a little rectangular one with some cute Halloween designed earrings inside. I’m going to have fun wearing them and popped the pumpkin ones in today.

The smell of the next parcel had me immediately thinking ‘bath bomb’ and was thrilled to find out Helen had gotten me a Lush product! I love Lush and haven’t had chance to try out much of this year’s Halloween range yet. The Lush Eyeball smells amazing and I can’t wait to use it.

Last but not least is this Caramel Pumpkin reed diffuser! It smells delicious and I’ll be using it throughout the rest of the Autumn season.

Huge thanks to Helen for my gifts and to Britt for putting the Secret Ghoul together. I really hope it becomes an annual thing. 🎃

What do you think of Secret Ghoul? Will you be signing up next year?

    I love this idea so much actually! My family always does secret santa each year, but never thought to take that into Halloween as well! Awesome post.

    Happy Halloween for yesterday! I’ve never heard of the Secret Ghoul before but it sounds like a pretty fun thing to be involved in! The earrings are so cute, and I love the bath bomb, but upon first glance I thought it was a nipple. Oops!!

      Lush is a brand who sell various beauty, bath and skin care products. I’m obsessed with their bath bombs. x

    Happy Halloween for yesterday! I’ve never heard of a Secret Ghoul, but it sounds like a pretty fun thing to be involved in. I love the earrings and the bath bomb, but I did think it was a nipple upon first glance, oops!

    Oh my goodness I love this! I’ve never heard of Secret Ghoul before, but I love Halloween more than Christmas so this is right up my alley. I hope it happens next year, maybe Canadians can participate too?

      Britt (who set it up this year) is from Canada and it’s open to everyone which I love. 😁 I really hope she does it again next year.

    I’m so happy you liked all of your gifts. I loved mine so much that I forgot to take a photo to do a blog post about them. D’oh!

    I’ve never heard of Secret Ghoul. It’s a cute idea though!

    I love the earrings that you got, they are super cute.

    I’m going to be watching scary films tonight too.. I just need to see if there are any good ones I can watch on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

      Netflix is hit and miss for good horror movies. My favourite on their is probably Cabin in the Woods.
