you know what the main reason i wanted to bring to blog back was? i wanted to do a post of some of the spooky things i was still eyeing up this year. obviously i’ve already spent way too much money in spoopy things because this is the time of year it’s easier for me to find things that suit my personal spoopy aesthetic. (i’m working on making a little haul video of my purchases so far later….)
BLACK HEART CREATIVES’ halloween collection is INCREDIBLE. as usual. i want everything as usual but so far i’ve only ordered the witches magic hand necklace, and i might treat myself to the black candle shrine later on if i haven’t spent all my money. every time i wear the witch moon necklace i bought last year, i have at least one person be all “omg that necklace is amazing, where did you get it” and i’m always repping BHC because i love them a lot. i’m a bit sad the witch moon didn’t come back this year though…
i only just discovered curiology and i am seriously eyeing up their halloween fly by night bat necklace.
i’m a sucker for enamel pins, and punky pins’ halloween collection is cute af. i’ve already bought a few things on the warehouse sale (i got some bargain seconds and samples and discontinued spooky bits) but i’m still drawn to the down with my demons pin (i also love the feminist witch pin in theory but i disliked the font on the banner too much to pay full price, and it’s sold out anyway so who cares)
these damn halloween novelty dresses from matalan. i tried the pumpkin one in large at my local branch and it was so cute but i knew XL would be a better fit. i’m tempted to buy all 4 designs (especially since i just sold my boohoo skeleton bodycon) but i think i’ll probably be sensible and just get the witch and the pumpkin. but we’ll see.
this neon style bat light thing from asda. the main reason i haven’t already bought it because i’m being weird about the black base, i feel like it will stand out too much on our all white ikea furniture
my claire’s wishlist. though realistically i will probably get the mermaid tiara, bat bow headband and maybe the spider web veil headband and/or pair of earrings. the witchy poo is too much even at 40% off but it tickles my giggles <3
& here’s what i’m kind of thinking about getting from poundland, but who knows. i just think the ghosties are cute, and i finally figured out how to put fake lashes on last weekend, and i was thinking the turquoise bucket could be a cute home for one of my plants. (ha ha ha since i started writing all this the other day i actually went to poundland again yesterday and bought every single one of these items already, oops.)
all the usual online clothes retailers have been rather disappointing this year. they all seem to be recycling the same old designs and a lot of plus ranges only has a handful of boring t-shirts. the only things i’m really eyeing up (apart from those matalan dresses from earlier) is the same ghosts bats & spiderwebs dress i’ve been eyeing up at boohoo for the last three years, and these skeleton cycling shorts because i live in cycling shorts in the summer and it’d be a nice change from plain black. but the real bummer here is that everyone has been asking questions about my spiderweb leggins and thats the one design boohoo hasn’t recycled. why?
every time i go to sainsburys i keep looking at these plush cat baskets, they are SO CUTE but i literally have no use for one, and they are £5. maybe if they were £3 or less, i could justify it but…. the bat is cute af too but our sainsburys is so small obvs they dont have them. i also kind of want some witch leg ‘lawn stakes’ and put them in my garden all year round because i’m a spooky bitch. i’ve already have the bat welcome sign in my basket for next week’s online food shop, and i had the ghostie too, but tbh i think i’m going to swap it for the legs because i think can diy a sheet ghost later/when ever.
i’m sure there’s something else, like stuff in tiger, and i’m still going to london next week and then glasgow for actual halloween. who knows what i might find and throw my money at next. honestly, someone stop me please? i could have also gone through american stores and tortured myself more than i already do (i spend way too much time watching american youtubers’ halloween hauls and follow me around a shop you have no access to and internally weeping, but it’s for the best.) but that’s enough now.
