Hello!!So I was invited to a Halloween party on Saturday however it was the day I got back off holiday and I felt and looked like crap so decided to decline the offer plus……I’m really not a massive fan of Halloween I know I know I mean I love carving pumpkins and love hocus pocus and THIS IS HALLOWEEN and the old style Gothic romance of Halloween but modern day Halloween where 14 year olds don a £1 mask and expect me to spend my evening answering the door to them and give them my sweets…yeah that part not so much!!However I decided to still share with you lucky lot what I would have gone as had I felt up to it!!
A creepy cracked porcelain doll. X
I still can’t get over how quick this year is going!! Like how?? Anyways loves here is my October Favourites list x
Home-made Bread. Why yes I did get inspired by bake off!! My husband made some white bread when he was off and I decided I wanted a go too I decided to make a wholemeal bread and it turned out pretty good even the husband liked it!!
16personalities.com I watch anastasjia Louise on YouTube religiously i just adore her she’s such a cute little bean honestly you need to watch her videos! Anyway she did a video on personality types and linked the website so I took the test and turns out I’m an advocate infj which means introverted intuitive feeling judging. It’s very interesting finding out what it reveals!
Mega matte lipstick by seventeen. This colour is just so beautiful I’m going to do a full review later on in a separate post but this is my new favourite colour!
Behind closed doors book. OMG this book was SO good!! If you enjoyed gone girl and girl on the train I fully recommend this book the story is brilliant again I’ll be reviewing this properly in my October reading list post.
Cornwall holiday. I love Cornwall you should all know that by now!!! I had such a lovely time it’s so nice to get away 🙂
In Falmouth on holiday I had quite possibly the best ever burger in a place called The meat counter. Handmade burgers in a resteraunt that has an old school 50’s aesthetic and has sourced materials from everywhere to create a unique dining experience. Such good food great service awesome xx

Thank you again Hun it brightened up my day 😘😘😘😘xxx
Hello loves so you may remember I did a post showing you the books I’d chosen to read at the beginning of September they were Gone Girl,Girl on the train and Girl with all the gifts. Here’s my reviews and opinions x
The Girl on the train. Ok I have read a fair few books this year but honestly this book has made its way to my top 3!!! It is so good! The pace was brilliant I just couldn’t put it down I kept telling myself ok one more chapter then stop but by the time I got to the end of the chapter I just had to read the next one to see what was going to happen!!! I ended up finishing it in a day! The characters are well thought out and relatable and weren’t overly characterised you could make up your own details about them which I enjoy in a book!! I’d give this 5 stars x
The girl with all the gifts. Ok confession time. I picked this book with no idea what it was about and set to reading it, I’d made some tiny connection about what it might be about from the descriptions the writer was using and honestly I was enjoying not knowing what on earth was going to happen….then one day I went onto YouTube…an ad pops up before the video I wanted to watch loads and it was an ad for a film so couldn’t be skipped…I sat watching the ad thinking hmmmmm this sounds a little familiar I’ve heard that character name before and boom they’ve made a bloody film about it and the trailer completely gives away how the bloody book ends!!! So I threw it across the room in anger and cannot bring myself to continue with it as it’s been spoilt for me!! I will however resume reading when I’ve gotten over the hurt!
Gone girl. You know i tried with this book i really did. I haven’t seen the movie so I’ve no idea what happens I’ve managed to avoid spoilers thankfully however I do know who plays the main characters in the film, I thought i could make up my own images of the characters but I can’t I keep seeing Ben affleck every time I read the book and it is just super annoying to not be able to make it up in my head!!! If anyone has read this book without giving me spoilers please convince me it worth reading because at the moment after loving girl on the train I’ve yet to get hooked on another book 😦
So there it is a very bad reading month for me 😦 x
Any book recommendations are welcome!!
