Halloween is on a Saturday this year – for the first time in who knows how long (probably calendars) – and I have really struggled to get into the spirit this year! Have you? I am one of those “Halloween season starts in September” people usually, but this year with no promise of going to a Halloween party any time soon I’ve been finding other ways to celebrate Halloween at home.
When visiting Faster Lente Llamas this weekend- a glamping site with added llamas – I finally exhaled. I felt like the breath that I’d been holding for the past few weeks had finally been released. It was tranquil, it was blissful… and there were llamas. I invite you to explore this amazing experience vicariously through me, and then maybe go and try it for yourself.
So… haha… bleeding. For anyone who’s ever had a menstrual cycle, we can confirm it’s just NOT FUN. Period. (That joke would work, if I were American.) For every person who’s felt the discomfort of a period, the embarrassment of a leak or the annoyance of having to find a place to change your tampon… Look no further. Floweret cup is a game-changer.

It’s not like I need an excuse nowadays to get a massive Lush order in. I spend about half my time in bed or in the bath nowadays since I’ve had the excuse not to go anywhere. Lush Halloween is just an excuse for me to buy a heck load of things that match my all year round aesthetic. So here’s a rundown of what I bought and what I thought! (Oh look, a little Halloween rhyme. You can ‘av that one for free.)
If there’s one thing I’ve been doing more these last few months, it’s treating myself to the little things. Those small things that I can change for myself have helped keep me afloat for a while. Whether that be making a self-care to help combat my anxiety and stress, or just straight up pampering myself, here are some of the products I use and wanted to recommend to you!
I just wanted to tell you about September’s Papergang Box by OhhDeer – a subscription service for stationery lovers! I live for space themed goodies and so this box seemed like it was made for me – plus I got it for the tidy price of £7 as it was my first box! Bargain!
Heyyyy! It’s ya girl, Amy, back at it again with some awesome new conte… no, I can’t keep this up. Yeah, hi – I was gone, and now I’m back. Over the course of the year I’ve not really felt like blogging. I mean, who could blame me for not exactly feeling motivated enough to do anything but dip my toe occasionally. But I thought, seeing as it’s Halloween season (aka… September right up to October 31st) I’d start producing some more posts for my favourite time of the year.
I’m not one for food reviews, despite being a frequenter of many a fine dining establishment (Read: I like Nandos a lot). However, after spending our first dinner date out after lock-down at Gourmet Food Kitchen, I just had to write a full review. If you’re not a foodie, then in short, it was incredible. If you are, then read on…
Now I’m going to spill some not-so-sweet tea… just before the lock-down my anxiety hit a spike after months of burying it, and I ended up having to sign myself off work due to stress. It’s not been pretty, but that’s the truth of it. Since then I’ve been phasing back and, more importantly, feeling a lot better. Here’s a few ways that I have been coping with anxiety and stress since then; I hope you find them useful.
I decided to try 30 new foods I’d never had before, in the hope of broadening my culinary experience before I turned 30. I did it but never posted this, and it was one of the few goals I managed to complete… Probably because it involved food. I hope this helps you on your journey around the foods of the world!
You probably won’t want to try the last one though…
