4 Ways To Get Into The Halloween Spirit

Monday, 27 October 2014

With Halloween just around the corner I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourite ways to get into the Halloween Spirit :) 

1. Buy some Halloween candy!
Nothing says Halloween quite like miniature chocolate bars and candy packages. I have to say that this is probably one the best parts of Halloween in my opinion! And will sure get you reminiscing about your trick or treating glory days ha-ha :)

2. Immerse your self in a spooky story
Do you have a favourite scary TV show...Vampire Diaries or Murdoch Mysteries perhaps?
Maybe a scary movie is more your thing, or maybe a more light hearted favourite Halloween special from your childhood like Halloween Town?
And what about some spooky books? You know like Harry Potter, Dracula or Frankenstein?
Personally, I've been loving watching episodes of Pretty Little Liars off ITunes. I think this show is just the right amount of scary/suspenseful for me (I get spooked pretty easily).
Getting into a spooky story will definitely send those chills racing up your spine and get you in the Halloween spirt.

3. Pick out a costume
Even if your not planning to dress up it’s fun just to look right?
I think it would be loads of fun to be an inflatable angry bird or dress up as a minion but you can never go wrong as a princess or fairy!

4. Decorate your space
One of the most funnest and easiest things to do in my opinion is add some festive touches here and there. I recently purchased these two little plastic pumpkins and I love them to death! (pun not originally intended but now it most definitely is!)

What are something of the things you enjoy doing around Halloween?

DIY Garland / Adding A Pop Of Colour

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

I’ve recently moved into a new place that I love and I am so excited! I’ve really been enjoying looking around for furniture and picking out cute pieces to make the place look nice and homey.

I’ve also been scouring the web for some design ideas, (of course!) and I keep coming across the same tip which goes something along the lines of either “don’t buy all your furniture in the same place or else your home will look like a showroom” or “if you want your home to look lived in you should collect pieces over time.”

Striving to make this place feel like home I’ve definitely been doing my best to follow these suggestions. However, slowly collecting everything has left me with these big bare white walls that are starving for some colour.

Until now!

Enough was enough and I decided to make this DIY garland. I learned how to make this way back when I was in elementary school so it’s obviously supper simple and easy to make. You can also pick any colours you like so it can work in any space. The best part is you probably already have all this stuff lying around your house (honestly!).

With out further ado, on to the DIY instructions!


-construction paper
-tape, glue or a stapler

Step 1:
Cut the construction paper into long strips.

Step 2:
Place a piece of tape on one end of a strip, then bend the stripe to form a loop and attach the two ends with the tape.

Step 3:
Slide a second strip through the center of the loop you created in Step 2. Then, follow Step 2 to make the second strip into a loop.

Step 4:
Repeat Step 3 until your garland reaches your desired length.

Step 5:
Hang your garland up and enjoy your new decoration!
