Need Halloween Inspiration? look no further…

It’s that time of year again, the air is crisp, it’s getting colder and the days are starting to get shorter. Autumn has arrived and is in full swing, with only a couple of months left of the year. Where has this year gone?! Although we still have plenty of things to look forward to before the year is out. Yes, the most wonderful time of the year is coming up, but just before we start buying presents and organizing secret Santas we have something else to celebrate first…Halloween!


Have you carved your pumpkin yet? Image from


A holiday that originated from Celtic harvest festivals ‘All Hallows Eve’ has become a staple in modern culture with so many different traditions and activities to take part in. We’ve all seen the pumpkin Instagram posts, the scary make up tutorials and the supermarket displays in the lead up to the big day (or should I say night!) With so many fun activities to take part in it’s no wonder that so many people love this holiday. But one of the main traditions has to be dressing up. Whether you are going trick or treating with the kids, attending a Halloween party, or even staying in to hand out sweets you can get creative and have some fun with your costume. Have you got your costume sorted yet? It’s not long until the main event!
