Things That Made Me Smile This Month | October 2018

My favourite month of the year was a hectic one. There was always something happening and it seemed like everything I owned was breaking on me one by one. Despite all the madness, I had a lovely month embracing Autumn and getting in the Halloween spirit! Here are some of the things that made me smile this month…

Decorating for Autumn
I finished decorating the flat for Autumn and Halloween. I just loved seeing the pumpkins and golden leaves scattered around each room!

I went to the pumpkin festival and had such a great day out seeing some of the UK’s biggest pumpkins.

I didn’t find as much time to bake as I would have liked but I did try making some pumpkin biscuits which was a first and great fun!

The weather cooled down a bit this month and I spent many cosy afternoons tucked up reading Harry Potter or watching Halloween films. Perfect!

As always, catching up with my family made me very happy. And of course, cuddles with my best friend, Billy the dog.

Autumnal coffees and hot chocolates in massive Halloween mugs made each day better. And it kept me in the Halloween spirit even when I was Christmas shopping online!!!

My favourite October tradition: watching Over The Garden Wall. We light pumpkin scented candles, turn on the fairy lights, make lots of snacks and have the cosiest night in!

I went pumpkin picking for the first time had the best time!

I had the cosiest Halloween. I spent the afternoon catching up with my family, eating sweets and watching Paranorman. Then I came home to carve my pumpkin and watch Halloween!


I hope you had a lovely October too and that you’re enjoying November so far!

I’m sorry I won’t be as active on the blog this month because I’m relaxing a bit in the run up to Blogmas! You can still find me on Instagram! 🙂
