I don’t know if I’m the only person who does this but on my days off I can’t just sit and lounge around, I need to do anything and everything! So, since I haven’t had much time to prepare for a blog post, I thought I would tell you guys what I have done instead of a blog post, in the form of a blog post. Win-win.
The number 1 thing on my list was to see some friends as I am always in work nowadays and not everyone is free on a Sunday so I took advantage of it being half-term and met up with two of my friends who are off for this week. We initially planned on carving pumpkins as I have never carved a pumpkin. I was so excited and then Asda let me down because their pumpkins were all awful. FOR GOD’S SAKE ASDA.
Instead we decided to make cookies and brownies but I don’t have pictures for them, apologies. I also got my first Costa hot chocolate of 2014 and it was just so good. Like, wow.
After convincing my brother yesterday to have a Halloween party on Saturday night I decided I wanted to make some Halloween treats. I have bought ingredients and decorations to make cupcakes before I go (look out for snaps on my insta! plugplugplug) and I made some Halloween chocolate…
To do this I just started by melting white chocolate with a tiny bit of butter so that it didn’t set too quickly (and it looks super glossy). I just popped it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring it in between. When it was fully melted I separated it into two bowls and put blue food colouring in one and green food colouring in the other. Then I put some cling-film onto a tray and poured the chocolate on it, in a sort of rectangular shape and attempted to marble it using a chopstick. Much chef. Then I just sprinkled on some Halloween ‘hundreds & thousands’ and scattered some jelly beans, salted caramel popcorn and some mini oreos (some whole, some crushed) over the top. Then I chucked it in the fridge and I was done! Super easy and it looks so cool!
After doing all the dishes and whatnot, my missguided order came. I almost saved up last weeks pay but I found so many cheap monochrome items that I just couldn’t resist! I just have to wear black and white for work so this was perfect! I got four tops, a dress and a pair of swanky leggings for just over £60 and got free next day delivery! All of my items fit me perfectly so I couldn’t be happier.
Then, I realised that I had no idea what I was going to go as for Halloween. After watching multiple youtube videos, I settled on this leopard look. I went and bought two L’oreal gold eye shadows to help me with this look, one in “nude 205” (WHICH IS SOOOO SHIMMERY) and one in “lumiere 500”. Ignore the part of my eyebrow that I accidentally covered with foundation and the gap in the eye liner on my nose-
And no lie, I did this in 15 MINUTES. I will obviously spend a lot longer doing it at the weekend to make sure it is absolutely perfect but 15 minutes is unreal. If you don’t wanna be a super boring “whiskers and triangle nose” cat, be a leopard, you can still wear all black and it looks like you spent a long time getting ready. I also am just about to get rid off my moustache, don’t worry.
Luckily my Mum found a good Pumpkin in Sainsbury’s so I’m going to carve that and then have a shower and watch Celebrity Juice before bed time! I hope you have all had a wonderful day, have fun on Halloween and please be safe! Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do… Good bye for now little buns!
