Halloween 2017 | Vlog


The weekend before Halloween was quite an eventful one for us. We went to one of our favourite places, Colchester Zoo, to see if we could be scared by their ‘Fright Night’ attractions! We also went on our yearly visit to MCM Comic Con to see what geeky merch we could get our hands on and then we went around London to do a bit of shopping. We ended our weekend by carving pumpkins and you can watch it all in this vlog!

Being a ‘Recluse’ on Halloween | Rachel

recluse halloween 1.jpg

Halloween. All Hallows’ Eve, whatever you want to call it. A night where most people my age spend their evening being social, attending parties, putting on their best costume and celebrating by drinking their entire body weight in alcohol! Celebrating what exactly I don’t quite know. I’ve never really understood the concept of Halloween to be honest, but growing up as a kid who was easily scared at the idea of ghouls and ghosts, I was never really a fan. Most normal kids would go trick-or-treating but I would sit at home, curtains drawn, praying nobody would knock at the door dressed in some creepy costume begging for sweets (it’s kind of weird when you think of it like that…). I remember going once and that was it! We also had a few family Halloween parties when I was a child but apart from the food and sweets I wasn’t too keen.

Exploring the Pumpkin Patch


Every year throughout the month of October, our Instagram feed is full of people going to a pumpkin patch. We scroll through and see the array of orange shades and interestingly shaped pumpkins and it always makes us want to visit one ourselves. The problem is we were always unsure of where a local decent patch was located. That was until our blogger pal Yasmine recently posted some pictures on her Instagram of her visit to Foxes Farm pumpkin patch. Since it’s fairly local to us, we decided we had to make a trip, finally!

DIY Dream Jars with Hobbycraft*


One thing we love to do when we have any spare time is get creative. We’re not the best at arts and crafts but we love to give it a go and see what we can make! Whether we’re working on our scrapbooks or trying to create something new, there is something almost therapeutic about getting creative and crafty! Hobbycraft is our first stop when we need any crafting essentials, so you can imagine how shocked and happy we were when we received an email from them, asking if we would like to work together! They set us the challenge of creating something using their blog as a guideline. Their blog features many different tutorials and ideas, so it’s great to have a look at if you want something fun to make but need inspiration!

Autumn – Expectations vs Reality


We’re pretty sure many of you can agree with us when we say Autumn is the best season (Spring being a very close second!). It’s the perfect time of year as the sun goes away and you get to wear cosy jumpers in every berry shade imaginable, chuck on some cosy pyjamas at the end of a long day and drink your entire body weight in hot chocolate. Every year we see so many bloggers posting about Autumn and the things they’re looking forward to and it gets us so excited for the season ahead! However, when it actually arrives we get quite disappointed by a few things. Don’t get us wrong, we adore Autumn, but it isn’t always everything it’s hyped up to be. We’ve compiled a list of expectations we have for Autumn… and what they’re really like once the season arrives!
