Autumnal / Halloween Haul
Happy Sunday everyone,
It’s THAT time of the year when we start to get excited about the leaves getting brown and the weather getting colder. Although, I have to say, London is so warm for almost the end of October and I can’t really complain because I’m not a freezing cold lover (maybe in a parallel universe someone loves super cold weather, but I personally don’t know anyone that does here haha).
I personally love to get festive and decorate my house according to the season. I feel that this year I actually made more in that sense for Autumn than ever before. Ah and this reminds me – I didn’t try the Starbucks Pumpkin Latte yet (so late to the party, girl!). Anyways, I picked different autumn scented candles, glitter pumpkins, real pumpkins, creepy chocolates and many other exciting stuff that I can’t wait to show you. Let’s get into it, shall we?
I made almost all my Halloween shopping in ASDA because I feel they have an awesome collection every year (I started to say awesome so much by the way). So we switched from the usual online groceries shopping and we hit the actual store last Friday night.
They came in a set of three and they’re super cute! If you want to give a girly autumnal aspect to your bedroom, these cuties will perfectly suit you. Well, I love glitter and gold – imagine the excitement when I saw them on the website. I would highly recommend to check the website first because the Halloween section in store was kind of unorganised (everything was thrown in wrong aisles.. I mean I get shoppers’ excitement but they should be conscious about their actions! – OK, that sounded so serious).
Aren’t they the best?
Baileys Pumpkin Spice
Woo Baileys you are beyond AMAZING! Basically, this limited edition tastes like cinnamon and spiced chai blended with the original Irish cream. I love it when limited edition drinks are really different from the original. I was actually surprised by the perfect blend and how crazy good this tastes (not that I don’t love the original too). It’s that one drink that you HAVE to try this season – it will lift your mood and perfectly get you into the Autumn feeling. Enjoy the strong spices on the rocks (2 ice cubes will do) and embrace the season!
Little Yankee Candles
I love having little candles because I get bored so easily of scents (Mercy, my best friend will agree with me on this). If you’re like me, you’ll understand. My picks for this season:
Japanese Maple and Iced Almond Cookies
The first one smells subtle which is not bad in general, but I prefer a stronger scent to my candles. It’s a good one for the season, but I am still looking for the perfect one – Any suggestions please?
The second one smells like my mum’s Christmas cookies – yum yum yum!
They look so sooo lovely! I saw these on the shelf and thought they will go so well for the Halloween pre-party. You can see in the picture the pumpkin we carved – it’s super scary at night!
Now, I will pour a glass of Baileys, light a Yankee candle and snuggle in bed with my fashion magazines while you browse your items for Halloween.
Happy Halloween my lovelies,
