Heres a sneak peek into what we’ve been living and loving this month…

 

We skipped the traditional Halloween costume this year as Bou was a little overwhelmed by all the holiday hullabaloo. Instead we opted for a casual Minnie Mouse inspired outfit, complete with H & M KIDS character mouse ears headband and fluffy polka dot jumper. The look was pulled together with these ahhhmazing pink metallic leggings I found on a recent EBAY trawl and finished off with these crazy cool spooky socks picked up at our local ASDA store.

 

I also got some SNAZAROO face painting kits as we will have a few extra little people to entertain on the day. These water based paints are the best as not only are they skin-friendly, hypoallergenic and completely washable but they also come in a wide range of specialised themed kits and packs with neat step-by-step design guides for fail-proof fantastic faces every time.

 

Now who remembers MEG AND MOG ? They were a childhood favourite of my own, so I thought what better way to get my little one in the mood for Halloween than to introduce her to these classic spellbinding stories about a hapless but well-meaning witch called Meg and her cat Mog. The animated TV series is a more recent production, yet still manages to magically capture the essence of the original books written by Helen Nicoll and illustrated by Jan Pienkowski with its simple storytelling and bright, bold colours. Needless to say it has been a huge hit!
