Really impressed with Home Bargains Halloween range. Here are a few bits I picked up:
Halloween eyelashes – these are great if you are wearing fancy dress or even if you want to dress regularly and just go for a more dramatic eye make up or complete face make up look.
Hallow-scream make up set – great to either go for more dramatic make up or to completely change your face if you are going in fancy dress. Everything you need and lots of colours to use.
Skull glass and straw – I plan to use this all year round, I love anything with skulls on so halloween items are great!
Bopper headband – a simple but effective addition to your everyday outfit. Maybe you are working on halloween and cannot go as fancy dress but you can get away with this headband?!
Hanging skeleton – not too sure where I plan to hang this, but again, pretty sure it will stay up far past halloween….
Feather mask – great addition, like the headband, if you are wearing normal clothing.
3 metre bunting – who can go wrong with bunting, I plan to put this up around the ceiling in my living room.
Happy halloween bunting – more bunting! This would be great in the conservatory.
10 printed balloons – if you are having a party then balloons are a must have!
Window decoration – I am not sure if i want to put this on the living room window for the neighbours to see or maybe in our conservatory. They stick easy to glass and the little pumpkins are cute.
And of course it is worth checking out what Halloween sweets they have for trick or treaters(and yourself!)
Do you decorate your house for halloween?
With Halloween coming up, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to dress up or not. I pretty much use October as an excuse to crack out all my skeleton clothing anyway. Rather than dressing up I wanted to make a simple change and just go for dark make up and a gothic look wig.
I got myself the Vixen wig from Hot hair for £19 which I think is an absolute bargain for a wig. It was on offer reduced from nearly £50! They have so many great wigs, for any occasion, whether you want to wear one daily or if you want to wear one as part of a costume.
I have tried wigs before, I put a wig cap on before putting this on. It fitted really well and felt secure. I may trim the fringe slightly though and if I ever change my mind about the length of the wig I may cut it into a bob!
I feel like I have Wednesday Addams/Morticia vibes with this look, but I am digging it.
Have you tried a wig?
Pep & Lekker seed snacks are vegan and gluten free. They are over 40% seed based so are a great source of fibre and are naturally filling.
The three flavours are:
Fennel and sunflower seed
Rosemary and pumpkin seed
Cumin and nigella seed
You can either eat them by themselves or use them with a dip, like hummus or even have them to accompany soup in the colder months. You could even crumble them onto a salad or something.
Snacks like this I just eat straight out of the packet if I am honest! I have had them with hummus, but that is easy to just grab the pot out the fridge. They taste so good together!
I think it is great they are gluten free as a lot of people have intolerance’s to gluten or dairy and sometimes both so this is ideal for anyone avoiding those two food groups.
I think my favourites were the rosemary and pumpkin seed based ones, I love pumpkin seeds, especially on porridge. Ok, typing this is making me hungry and has just given me the idea to crumble up the ones I have left on my porridge for breakfast tomorrow!
I hope you enjoy that I am posting more food reviews on my vegan journey 🙂
Since adapting to a vegan diet I am certainly trying so many more foods I would never have tried before. I have become a great fan of Granola and right now my favourite is the handmade one from Thunderflower Kitchen.
It is important that we ensure we feed our bodies with the nutrients and vitamins we need. Nuts, seeds and fruit are all great foods and a great way to start your day. I like to mix my granola with a dairy free yogurt, but you could have it with milk or even have it dry if you prefer to snack on it throughout the day.
The granola contains toasted oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit and maple syrup. I love maple syrup! It is 100% natural and vegan friendly and only 180 calories per serving.
I find having a bowl of this in the morning helps to fill me up until my mid morning snack. It tastes so good and really makes you happy knowing all the goodness you are fueling your body with.
I have tried other granola before but not really been sold on it, but this one tastes really great compared. I like to alternate between this and porridge for my breakfasts at the moment. Thinking of warming up some almond milk and trying that with my granola in the morning.
What is your go to breakfast right now?
Who remembers the Nokia 3310? It used to look like a chunky, in-destructible brick. It was my first ever phone, you could call and text on it and play snake and that was about it. Nokia now have a smart version of this phone and it is insane. You can see the full details here and I think its crazy that it now has a colour screen.
It comes in different colours, I think the yellow is super bright and funky!
It supports micro sim which is the same size as an iphone and also has room for an SD card. The phone features a built in radio as standard too.
It is pretty easy to use, I got my priorities sorted by first figuring out the new colourful game of snake!
The built in camera is great quality too.
In comparison to my iphone 6 you can see it is a great size.
This would make a great first phone as often smart phones can cost hundreds of pounds.
It is easy to use, Nokias are also know for their durability. I used to drop mine all the time back in the day and the 3310 is honestly so robust. This model is ideal if you work on a building site or you need a phone to take to a festival or event that isn’t bulky. It
You can add apps to the phone, there are lots of games you can download and it has the standard apps pre installed like facebook and twitter. I think it is so reasonably priced for a smart phone. This one was £54 from AO.com.
So impressed by this as an alternative to my iphone and really pleased with how easy it is to use and how it isn’t bulky in my pocket!
Would you go back to using the famous 3310?!
