Happy (Birthday To Me) Halloween!!
As some of you may or may not know, last Wednesday was my birthday, my 21st birthday to be exact! Having my birthday fall on Halloween means that I have a natural affinity for the holiday, along with anything and everything of the spooky sort! I have fond memories of my earlier birthdays where me and my mam had a tradition of sorts of watching Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, along with the classic Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice and Casper (who else had a huge crush on the actor who played Casper in his human form, Devon Sawa?!?!) from the moment I woke up. All on good old VCR of course!
I had an excellent day, breakfast in bed watching NBC, a spot of retail therapy, and a ghost tour in the beautiful 17th century Huntington Castle, which I am kicking myself for not getting any pictures of, but I was in such a hurry to get in there I forgot to even take my phone with me! The ghost tour was brilliant, and yes, there were a few scares! One included a scary clown with a chainsaw.... Truly terrifying! Then I had a lovely meal with my best friends and went out for cocktails and tequila shots! I didn't dress up as anything per se, but my outfit was still spooky, I sewed several plastic spiders to one of my cardigans, wore the glittering spider fascinator that you can see in my previous post, and glued a whole cluster of confetti spiders to my face!
Kind of sad that Halloween is over now, but seeing as Christmas is already being shoved in everybody's face, I am sure that the Christmas feeling will soon take over! Got my fingers crossed for snow this year.....:3
