What’s your favourite thing about October?
The colours! I love it when the leaves change colour and everything is yellow and orange, gives the world a lovely hue.

Are you a big celebrator of Halloween?
Absolutely! Especially as my birthday is literally two days before, it was always the perfect excuse to throw a Halloween themed party or go to one! I'm disappointed I won't get that this year!

What’s your favourite horror movie?
Annabelle Comes Home I think, I really enjoyed that! Or the Insidious series, they were really good films!

Would you rather a cosy night in watching horrors or a big night out in a costume?
Night out in a costume! But I do love cosy nights in watching horrors - but that's for the other 30 days of October!

Which has been your most favourite costume to date?
Probably Wednesday Addams or a vampire in this stunning fishtail black dress I had. Which I'm pretty sure I also used for Wednesday Addams...

Bobbing for apples or pin the hat on the witch?
Never done either but probably pin the hat on the witch!

How do you celebrate Halloween?
Normally with a party. I've only ever been trick-or-treating once, and I took my nieces once.

What’s your least favourite horror?
Cabin Fever. I watched it once, over a decade ago and it still makes me feel physically sick.

Do you have a favourite trick or treating memory?
Dressing up my dog as a devil and taking her round with my nieces - that was quite funny!

What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?
The costume potential and the party decor!

Scary costume or Silly costume?
Somewhere in-between. I don't like to dress silly but I don't like going over-the-top scary either. My go-to is a vampire to be honest.

What’s your favourite Halloween candy?
Swizzles Double Lollys! They're the absolute BEST!

You're attending a fancy smancy Halloween party. Money is no issue, what costume do you choose?
I would love to redo my steampunk costume from last year. I couldn't spend much money at all so it was very basic and looked pretty crap in all honesty.

Wicca is a Journey

 As I was writing my Samhain post, I kind of realised that my Wicca/Wheel of the Year posts barely even scratch the surface of the history and the meanings behind the Sabbats. I did have a little wobble, and worried that other witches may read my post and think "ugh, what a poser!" However, there is a reason behind the way I've written my posts.

October, I'm in Love

October is my absolute favourite month of the year. Not just because it's my birthday month, but it helps! There's just something about October that makes me happy.

Samhain & Ways to Celebrate

Ooh I haven't written one of these for a while! Oops! Seems only fitting that I start again with Samhain. Samhain is known as the witch's New Year. The Wheel of the Year has turned full circle and it's time to celebrate! We celebrate everything we have achieved this year, and we get to celebrate with our ancestors. Everyone knows the veil to the other world lifts at Halloween!

Diary Entry #8

A few weeks ago I decided to get us all out on our bikes for a quick evening ride. Josh had bought Charlie a balance bike, as the scooter was a no-go and he doesn't pedal his trike! I fancied attempting another go on my bike so off we went.
