Blogtober Day 17 - #Photoanhour Challenge


Blogtober photo challenge




Today is #photoanhour Challenge day arranged by Jane from Is That You, Darling? I had never done this challenge  before until last month and I certainly had fun doing it, I also came across some fab bloggers/Instagramers that I probably wouldn't have found before had it not been for doing this.

So I have decided to give it another go today but as I am working 8am-12pm I cannot promise a) a photo during these hours and b) anything exciting either but hey it's giving a snapshot into my life and you take the mundane and boring as well as the more exciting stuff that happens (probably more boring today though).  I still find what other people consider boring in their day to day lives, fascinating as it's giving you an insight into how people live and let's face it no-one's life is filled with constant shopping, spa treatments, exotic destinations, parties, lavish food in fancy restaurants and meeting rich and famous people on a daily basis unless of course you are rich and famous yourself!

If you are doing the #photoanhour Challenge then let me know by leaving your link below so I can see how you are spending today but also so I can add a link to your blog when I write up my blog post :)

Blogtober Day 16 - What's in my bag?

It's been 2 years since I last done a "What's in my Bag post" my last one you can read about here  I love checking out what other people carry around with them, sometimes I think "oooooh that's a really good idea, I need to get myself one of them!", other times I think "what would you carry one of those around with you for?!" Plus it gives you an insight into their lives and what they find useful and important.

A few things have changed since my last post but this is what I cart around with me on a daily basis minus all the receipts, proof of postages, leaflets, etc that I shove in my bag after I'm given them and then fall out as I'm rummaging through looking for my keys or lipgloss.


Keys
Car, house and work keys.  I have massive keyrings as it is much easier to find them in the abyss of my bag when I'm standing outside in the freezing cold.

Planner
This A5 sized planner is from Personal Planner UK and I love it! This is my second one and I wouldn't be without them now.  Will have to order a new one very soon since the end of the year is fast approaching!

Perfume
I tend to wear cheaper scents at work (the animals really don't care whether the perfume I wear is cheap or Chanel) and at the moment I'm using Sanctuary perfume. I'm really into Sanctuary products at the moment as I love the smell, they are Paraben free and also are cruelty free.

Lipgloss
This Rich Colour lipgloss in Belle is from B. Cosmetics and is also cruelty free.

Lip balm
I'm loving this Dr Organic Cherry lip balm as with the cooler weather coming in my lips get quite cracked and dry and this does the job.

What's in my bag blog post

Brush
This is a pop out brush and mirror from Avon.  Handy for brushing my hair and checking to see if I have anything stuck between my teeth after eating.

Purse
I got this Radley purse for my Christmas 2 years ago, unfortunately my keys have scratched off some of the print on the front of it.

Notebook & Pen
I use this for scribbling down blog ideas whenever one comes into my head as you never know when you might get inspiration.

Hand Sanitiser
For using after touching yukky things or when there is no soap in the toilet.

Phone
Could never be without this now!

Nakd Bars
I usually have one or two of these in my bag incase I get a bit peckish at work or when I'm out.  The Berry Delight one is my favourite.


What do you keep in yours? Also is your bag clean and tidy with everything accessible or does your bag contain items that even you don't want to know about?

Blogtober Day 15 - My Halloween Playlist

Just like listening to Christmas carols and songs at Christmas time I love listening to Halloween tunes to get me ready for decorating the house for Halloween.  I also have a Halloween cd that I will need to look out so I can start listening (and sing along badly) to that in my car while I drive to work.

Here is my Halloween Playlist:

Blogtober Day 14 - Grow your own Zombie

Halloween Decoration




Would you like your own Zombie? Read on to find out how you can grow your own!

Mr M is obsessed with Zombies at the moment, if he isn't killing them in Zombie Apocolypse he is watching them on TV in iZombie or in Walking Dead (we have just watched the first episode so we are waaaaaay behind) so I thought he might like his very own pet Zombie.

What you need:

Hands (not real ones obvs, as you will get arrested! I found this ones in Poundworld)
Plant Pot
Soil

How to make:

Put some soil in the bottom of a plant pot
Place the hand in with fingers pointing upwards
Fill the pot up with more soil and pack it down tightly so the hand stays upright.  I added some grass or you could also add some moss in the pot to give it that extra touch of a hand breaking through the soil.
Your Zombie can be grown either indoors or outdoors and will require regular watering.

Let me know if you gave this a try and if you got strange looks from people, I have kept my Zombie pots in the back garden for now and will move them to my front door for Halloween as I don't want the neighbours to think we are weirdos :)

Blogtober Day 13 - DIY Halloween Cushions



Being in the UK there isn't such a great demand for Halloween things so I usually end up buying things from the US and paying a fortune in getting it shipped over.  Looking on eBay I saw some lovely Halloween cushions but with the cost of shipping it meant that the price would be around £40-45 which is quite expensive for a cushion that would only be out for a few days each year.  So I decided to make my own!

When we were down in IKEA a few weeks ago I picked up a Black and an Orange cushion cover as well as the cushion padding to make my cushions.  The covers were £4 each and the padding  £3 each.

From eBay I purchased some fabric glue (I maybe cannot sew but I know how to glue!), a Candy Corn patch and a sequinned Ghost patch; along with some felt letters spelling "Trick or Treat" and "Boo".




I glued the letters and the patches onto the cushion covers using the fabric glue and let it set for around an hour before putting the cushions into the covers.

Voila! Here is the finished product!


Have you made any Halloween decorations for your home?

Blogtober Day 9 - Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Dip




Easy Salted Caramel Cheesecake Dip


This Salted Caramel Cheesecake dip is really tasty and is perfect for dipping in apple slices, biscuits, pretzels or anything else you want to dunk in it.  It only requires 3 ingredients, takes less than 5 minutes to make and is chilled in around 30 minutes. If you love caramel apples like I do then this is a winner!

You could put them into individual ramekins for a dessert or in a larger dish for people to share.


What you need:

Plain Soft Cream Cheese 140g
Salted Caramel Sauce 2 heaped tablespoons
Crunchie 1/4 smashed to sprinkle over the top

How to make:

Using a mixer or by hand, beat the cream cheese until it is light and creamy.
Add the caramel sauce and mix through until it's all combined.
Place the mixture into a dish and place in the fridge until chilled.
Smash your Crunchie (placing it in a sandwich bag and whacking it with a rolling pin is best) and then sprinkle over the top.
Slice your apples and get dunking!

Makes enough for two greedy people or three who are more restrained!

Blogtober Day 8 - Halloween Marshmallow Ghost Cones


Trick or Treat Ideas



Since I pass an hour or five on Pinterest a day I came across a pic of these marshmallow ghost cones on there a while back and thought these would be ideal party favours or just for handing out to a Trick or Treaters.  They are really easy to make and don't cost that much at all.

What you need:

Cellophane Cones
Black Sharpie Pen
Ribbon or Ties
White Mini Marshmallows

How to make:

Draw eyes and a mouth on each cellophane cone with your Sharpie.
Fill with marshmallows leaving enough space to tie the end off with ribbon or a tie.

Voila!! Marshmallow Ghost Cones! You could also fill them with popcorn or any other white sweet.

I'd love it if you could give me a follow me on Pinterest, you can do that here :)

Blogtober Day 7 - My Top 10 Halloween Films

It's coming up for Halloween and although I love scary films anytime of the year there is nothing I like more than to watch a scary movie in the dark with only pumpkins eerily lighting up the room to turn up the fear factor.  These are my top 10 favourite Halloween films to watch; some scary,  others not so:

Here are my top 10 Halloween films to watch:
The Omen

The original from 1976, not the remake from 2006 as that one is rubbish.  Damien is adopted by the Thorns after their son is stillborn; after people dying in mysterious ways and little Damien having a meltdown as they approach a church it is later discovered he has a 666 birthmark on his scalp which means he is the Antichrist.


Pic from Google



Halloween
Michael Myers stabbed his sister to death using a kitchen knife when he was 6 years old and was then placed in a psychiatric hospital.  He escapes from there years later and returns to his old home in Haddonfield wearing a creepy rubber mask to kill again.

Pic from Google


The Conjuring
A family move into a farmhouse which turns out to be haunted, after a few creepy happenings they decide to call in paranormal investigators.  It is discovered that the land once belonged to an accused witch who cursed all who lived on her land, after dealing with possessed people and performing an exorcism it is finally over....or is it? Definitely not one to watch on your own!!





Sleepy Hollow

Ichabod Crane is a police constable from New York who is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of a few people who lived there by the Headless Horseman.   Bit gory in some parts but Johnny Depp is in it so that makes up for it!

Pic from Google


Corpse Bride

Another Tim Burton film with Johnny Depp in it but it's only his voice this time.  Victor goes to the woods to practice his wedding vows and places the wedding ring on a tree root, only it's not a tree root but a murdered bride's finger who now thinks she is married to Victor!



Hotel Transylvania

After his wife's death, Dracula builds a 5 star hotel to protect his daughter and also for a holiday destination for monsters, werewolves, etc.  A human turns up at the hotel and falls in love with Dracula's daughter, Mavis. Dracula is voiced by Adam Sandler and is quite a funny film.

Pic from Google


1408

Another Hotel based film but this one is not funny, this one is really scary! Mike Enslin writes books about supernatural events that he doesn't believe in, he receives a postcard about a hotel saying "Don't enter 1408" Being really stupid he sees that as a challenge and books himself in to room 1408 even though the hotel manager warns him that plenty of people have died in that room over the years.  Loads of things happen while he is in there and this is another film I wouldn't recommend watching on your own!

Pic from Google


Sinister

Ethan Hawke plays a crime author who moves into a murdered family's house, only his wife and children don't know what happened to the previous occupants.  He finds a box of  home movie reels and a projector in the loft and decides to watch them. Each one shows a family being murdered, after reading up on the murders he discovers that a child from each of the families vanished. After a number of creepy going ons at his house he decides to up and leave with his family and move house but the creepiness continues.




Frankenweenie

Another Tim Burton stop motion film where a young boy whose dog gets hit by a car and killed, decides to bring him back to life in his home made lab in the loft. After successfully raising him back from the dead the fun begins. You need tissues for this one!!

Pic from Google



The Nightmare before Christmas

Oh look! Another Tim Burton film (can you tell I love Tim Burton films?!)!! This is one of my all time favourite films and for the last couple of weeks I have the This is Halloween song in my head. Jack Skellington discovers Christmas Town after walking through the woods and tells the inhabitants of Halloween Town all about Christmas and "Sandy Claws". Jack decides to take over Christmas that year and gets the Halloween people to make "toys" for the children and gets Lock, Shock and Barrel to kidnap Sandy so he can deliver the gifts in his place.

Blogtober Day 6 - Autumn Leaf Biscuits

Fall Leaf Cookies




After Mr M giving me a much wanted Kitchenaid for my birthday last week I couldn't wait to try it out so I decided to make Autumn Leaf biscuits.  I saw a pin on Pinterest ages ago with multicoloured leaves cut out from cookie dough but there was no recipe attached.  I decided to try to make my own using a basic biscuit recipe and using green, red and yellow food colouring gave it a go.  Sadly the pretty colours of the dough didn't show through once the biscuits were baked and turned out a brown and red marbled leaf instead.  Still looked Autumnal though :)!

What you need:

100g Butter
50g Caster Sugar
1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract
175g Plain Flour
Food colouring of your choice, I used green, red and yellow

How to make:

Preheat your oven to 150 degrees
Add the butter and caster sugar, beat until light and fluffy
Add the vanilla extract and mix, then add the flour making sure it is mixed well
Using your hands, divide the dough into 3 or 4 balls so you can then add the food colouring to the individual dough.
Once all your dough is coloured roll them out and keep turning it over until all the colours are mixed through to give your autumnal shades.
Cut out the dough using cutters, if your leaf cutters don't have the veins in them you can draw them in yourself by using a sharp knife.
Tip: make sure you use flour when rolling out on your worktop and rolling pin as it's quite a sticky dough
Place them in your preheated oven and cook for 25 minutes or until golden.

Blogtober Day 5 - Mini Aldi/Sainsbury's Halloween Haul

Aldi have really good Halloween bits and pieces as I discovered last year so I have been looking out for my weekly email they send about their special buys for their Halloween stock.  Finally it arrived earlier in the week and this week's special buy at Aldi were these serving dishes at £6.99 each.  As it is really difficult to get proper Halloween dishes over here instead of cheapo plastic things I rushed there after I finished work on Thursday so I could get my hands on all three as they are perfect for serving my spooky snacks on, also if you are planning on hosting a party these would look fab on your buffet table.

I bought the pumpkin platter, the divided serving dish and the pack of 3 spiderweb bowls.  They are made from dolomite and are hand painted so no putting them in the dishwasher, they have to be lovingly washed by hand instead.  Grab them while you still can!


When I was in Sainsbury's yesterday they were just starting to put out their Halloween  merchandise, I will have to go back later in the week to see what all they have got, meanwhile I grabbed this plastic drinks dispenser with Witch's Brew written on it for only £5.  You can fill it up with a bright green fizzy drink so it looks like a potion for a kid's party or if you have a signature punch then put it in one of these instead of a bowl for a different look.


Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? I'd love to hear your what your plans are!

Blogtober Day 4 - 11 Things Tag

I love reading other people's tag posts as it gets you to know more about the person behind the blog as they will tell you things that you wouldn't necessarily blog about.  The lovely Laura from  Laura Whispering tagged me along with a few other to do this 11 Things Tag.

How it works is: I'm to answer the 11 questions that Laura has tagged me in and I then tag more bloggers to answer the 11 questions that I have set for them, I can keep or change the questions as I choose.

1.  How did you get into blogging?

It started off by watching people's YouTube channels and then clicking on their blog link, I was then sucked into a vortex where hours had passed and I had learned how to organise your kitchen, curl medium length hair, how to make chocolate chip cookies, apply winged eyeliner perfectly and saw how people decorated their house for Christmas/Halloween.  I thought it sounded like fun and decided to give it a try.

2.  What TV Shows are you enjoying at the moment?

I watch very little "normal" TV now and watch a lot of shows on Netflix, Hulu, etc.  I am really into Chicago PD just now, as the name would suggest it's a Chicago based Police Department and there is humour in it too as well as some violent crime and shooting.  After watching the first 3 seasons of American Horror Story I am now on episode 2 of season 4 called Freak Show, there is a killer clown in it that is creeping me out so I'm hoping that he doesn't stay in it for very long :)!

3.  Do you have any intolerances, dietary requirements or unusual food preferences?

The Doctors thought that I had coeliac disease when I was younger as I stopped growing when I was put onto solids and was put on a gluten free diet but after various tests they said that wasn't the case and was put back on to normal foods.  I cut out gluten and as much dairy as I could a year ago and definitely felt much better as I was less bloated and I lost half a stone in 2 weeks too.  Although I've not been told I've got an intolerance I do feel better without gluten.

4.  What clubs or activities were you involved in as a child?

I was in the Girls' Brigade  from the age of 5 or 6 until I was 13/14, there wasn't any Brownie groups beside us as I think I would have preferred to have joined there instead. I went to dance classes on a Friday after school when I was about 6/7 until I was 14 where I learned to do ballet, tap and jazz.  I loved dancing and have certificates somewhere for my ballet exams.  I went on a few ski-ing trips when I was at school and loved that too, I was quite active as a child looking back and the thought of doing any form of sports now brings me out in a rash :). The photo below is me ski-ing in Austria in 1990.


5.  What was the last book you read?

Couldn't tell you as I've not read a book in years!  I used to read every night when I was at home or when I lived on my own but now I unwind by listening to music and watching tv in bed.

6.  Where is your location of choice when writing blog posts?

At home usually on my sofa, I don't have a specific area for writing up posts and just type one up wherever I plonk my bum down on.

7.  Do you believe in a Higher Power?

Hmmmm not sure to be honest! Part of me thinks that yes there is life after death and that when we die we will meet up with our loved ones in the afterlife. The other part of me thinks no, that when you die your dead and cease to exist. I don't suppose we will really know ourselves until it happens (hopefully not for a long time yet!) but when you hear of people saying that they see their loved ones who have already passed just before they die then that does sway me more into the yes category.

8. Which country would you like to visit and why?

America! I'd love to go to Disneyworld as I love Disney, Las Vegas as it seems an exciting place to be, New York for the sights and of course the shopping and finally New Orleans for the nightlife and music.

9. When you left school, what were your plans and aspirations? (Did you end up doing those things?)

While I was still at school I wanted to be a hairdresser, fashion designer or an air hostess! Then I decided that I would quite like to be a vet until I discovered the qualifications needed to become one (it's far worse now!) so office work it was after I left school. After a couple of years of photocopying and other mundane office tasks I decided to go to college to do a science course so I would have enough qualifications to enrol as a student veterinary nurse. After being employed in a veterinary practice and passing my exams I finally became a qualified veterinary nurse. I decided on a career change after 14 years and ended up in the oil and gas industry as a receptionist, after being made redundant in March I have come full circle again and I'm now working in the veterinary profession again in a more specialised practice as a receptionist. So although my plans to become a vet was a tad unrealistic I did still manage to work within the industry I wanted to work in.

My Veterinary Nurse badge that you get when you qualify.

10. What is your favourite restaurant, cafe, coffee shop?

My favourite restaurant is probably TGI's as when I meet up with my friends we tend to go to one of the big shopping centres in Aberdeen and we tend to head there even though there are an abundance of other restaurants there! If my friend comes out to visit me we go to the restaurant at one of the local hotels as we both really like it there as the food there is amazing and you get loads! I don't really go to caf├ęs or coffee shops as we tend to meet up for lunch/dinner and never in between those times.

11. Belly Button, innie or outie?

Mine is an innie :)!

Id like to tag Danielle from Underland to Wonderland, Pilar from Beauty and More by Pilar, Louisa at Duck in a Dress, Melissa from Fruity Flamingo and anyone else who would love to give it a try :)

Here are your questions:

1. What is your earliest childhood memory?

2. If you could change one aspect of your life ie hairstyle, career what would it be?

3. What is your favourite decade, (can be before your time)?

4. How would you spend your ideal day?

5. Who was your teenage crush?

6. Do you call your evening meal; dinner, tea or supper?

7. What was your first ever blog post? (link it too)

8. You are stuck on a desert island, which 3 things would you have with you?

9. Show us the last photo on your phone (no cheating!)

10. What is your favourite perfume?

11. Can you speak another language?

Blogtober Day 3 Halloween Haul - Poundworld & Home Bargains

Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year, however Christmas takes the top spot.  Unfortunately here in the UK we don't celebrate it in the big way like they do in the US where it is seen as a big holiday and over here well........this post explains the difference in how we do it :)!  I have to admit that when I watch American vlogs  and see their purchases I get a pang of jealousy as they have. So. Much. Nice. Stuff. and over here we have a few nice things in the shops amongst a sea of plastic tat. Sad times.  I have resorted to buying a lot of my things on eBay and spending two or sometimes three times as much on shipping it over here so I can have nicer things.

I found myself in Poundworld and Home Bargains on Saturday looking at their  Halloween things as I had some time to kill before going to the cinema and ended up coming out with this little lot:

Halloween Glasses I bought these for my bar cart that I am decorating for Halloween.  I bought two with a moonlight owl and the other two have a mahoosive spider on them.  I bought similar ones last year but as wine glasses, they are from Poundworld

Halloween Glasses

Bloody Hands These disgusting dismembered hands are for an upcoming Halloween project so look out for that post.  These "beauties" were both from Poundworld.

Poundworld Halloween

Pumpkin Platter was from Home Bargains and is ideal for serving spooky snacks on.  It's made from melamine so will see me through quite a few Halloween parties.

Poundworld Halloween

Bat Costume I bought this for Ben as didn't want him to feel left out when Halloween arrives.  He does wear a Halloween themed collar in October but thought he would look cute in this costume.  Look out for that pic on Instagram!  This was £2.99 in Home Bargains.

Blogtober Day 2 - Photo An Hour Challenge

Last Saturday I decided for the first time to do the #photoanhour challenge. As the name suggests you take a photo every hour and post it on Instagram, it is a fascinating way to see how people spend their day from mundane things to the more exciting.  Duck in a Dress does this challenge every month as well as a few others and I see their pics on my Instagram feed and always think that I should give it a go but never do as I either forget or I'm working.  This time it was last Saturday and I wasn't working which meant that I could do it, yay!!

This is how I spent last Saturday:

10am
My friend had came round on Friday night and after a late night of chatting and drinking I woke up feeling less than human.  I decided to make myself a cup of Green Tea with honey, lots of honey! This Twinings Caramelised Apple Green Tea is lovely and is perfect now we are into Autumn.


11am
Still feeling a bit rough so had a shower to make me feel better which did work, I have just started using Sanctuary products as I love the smell plus they are not tested on animals which is even better.


12pm
Heading down the road to the Post Office to send off an eBay parcel after selling some of my clothes after my wardrobe cull.  It closes at 12.30 so had to walk very quickly so I made it on time.


1pm
Make Up time! We were heading into Aberdeen for the afternoon so these were the products I used.  I have just recently converted to B. Cosmetics and love them, Superdrug has had a few promotions recently on them where you bought one product and got the second one half price and now their products are half price.


2pm
Decided to wear my top that I had bought a few weeks ago from New Look that I hadn't yet worn along with jeans and black heeled boots.  The top is a bit see through so I had to wear a camisole underneath it as I didn't want to give people sore eyes at the sight of me :)!


3pm
Driving up Union Street to head to La Tasca for lunch/dinner for a pre-birthday feed.


4pm
We hadn't been to La Tasca in over a year and I have to say that I was quite disappointed in the quality of food on this visit.  The Patatas Bravas wasn't as nice as it used to be according to Mr M plus it wasn't gluten free so I couldn't have any, the Tortilla was really crumbly and the Chorizo & Morcilla consisted of 4 thin slices of chorizo and 3 tiny black pudding balls; everything else that we had was ok though and the service was good.


5pm
In the cinema to see Legend, if you haven't seen it I recommend that you do.  Tom Hardy is fantastic playing both Reggie and Ronnie Kray, there is a lot of swearing in the film and also a few violent scenes that I had to look away from but I would definitely see it again.


8pm
Driving home, we were in the cinema for two and a half hours so it was pitch black when we got out.


9pm
Went to Poundworld and Home Bargains before going to the cinema to buy some Halloween and Christmas (it's never too early to start buying stuff for Christmas).  I will show you what I bought in a haul post shortly.


10pm
Make up off, clean PJs and watching my new addiction Chicago PD; the perfect end to a a Saturday night.

I had a lot of fun doing this and loved seeing what everyone got up to.  I will definitely do this challenge again. Did you do the challenge?  Let me know if you did :)

Blogtober Day 1 - Blogging Every Day In October





This year I decided to do Blogtober where I blog every day in October, I did try to do Blogmas last year and failed dismally a few days in as I hadn't enough posts lined up in advance and had to work a lot of extra shifts so I never had the time to do the things that I wanted to do nor write up the things that I had.  As this is my favourite time of the year; my birthday has just passed, we are now officially into Autumn and Halloween is just around the corner, I have loads of  things that I want to make/try/buy so I thought that this would be the ideal time to challenge myself and blog about them!

 I am in a different job now so I'm hoping (fingers crossed) that nothing comes up to prevent me completing Blogtober his time.  As well as doing Lifestyle posts I will be sharing some crafts, recipes, hauls, etc with an Autumn/Halloween theme.

Please let me know if you are doing the same, leave your link in the comment section and I will check out your blog :)
