Feeling The Festive Spirit This Halloween

Tuesday, October 30, 2018


Halloween is almost here and the nights have started drawing in, which can be a cold and depressing time for many people. The usual light nights are gone, it's freezing outside, yet Christmas still feels miles away. Rather than letting the terrible weather defeat me, I thought I'd try a few different ways of embracing this festive season and adding some spooky touches to my day, and of course I wanted to share them with you guys, so make sure you keep reading!


Carving a Pumpkin
Although you might think that this is an activity for children to do, it's actually really enjoyable for anyone, and me and Aiden had fun carving our own spooky pumpkin. We went for a more traditional, scary design, which was inspired by Pinterest, and it was actually harder than I imagined. This definitely kept us entertained for a couple of hours and was a fun, festive way to spend the evening. If you wanted to add to the autumnal vibes, why not even visit a pumpkin patch to choose one? Everyone on Instagram appears to be doing this and it looks very cute, so why not give it a go?

Going For an Icy Evening Walk
There's no better way to get that haunting feel than by going on an evening walk around this time of year. As the clocks have gone back now and the evenings are drawing in, it's started going dark while I'm still in university, and so what better time to go for an evening walk than on my way home? The old-fashioned university campus looks beautiful once it's lit up, but it's definitely still kinda creepy!


Watching a Halloween or Horror Film
If you really want to get cosy and feel in the festive spirit then there's nothing better than snuggling up for a movie night. If you're brave enough to watch a horror film then this will definitely scare you and add to that Halloween thrill, but for me I'd much prefer a lighthearted Halloween film that adds to the atmosphere without keeping me up all night!

Treating Yourself To Some Chocolates
Halloween is a time when your cupboards are stocked with countless sweets and chocolates ready for the imminent trick-or-treaters. However, if you're like me and at university, thus there'll be no visitors knocking on the door for sweets, it's the perfect time to treat yourself instead. That's how it works, right? With a cup of tea in hand and a few chocolates, you really will feel cosy and comfortable whilst it's freezing outside.

I hope you enjoyed this little post about a couple of the ways I've been embracing the Halloween spirit this year and feeling cosy as Autumn is well and truly upon us. Thank you very much for reading, and remember that I'm now posting 3 times a week, with my next post going up on Thursday, so I'll see you then!
