Pumpkin Carving :)

Pumpkin Carving :)

Every year since I was little I have carved a pumpkin for Halloween πŸ™‚ When I was younger I used to carve pumpkins with my older brothers and then I started doing it alone and then last year my friend Barghavi came round for a Halloween themed weekend and we carved pumpkins and watched Halloween movies and then did sparklers as well πŸ™‚ The last few years I have been carving Disney themed pumpkins which has been so much fun! I have carved Jack the Pumpkin King, Sally, The Oogie Boogie Man and Zero all from The nightmare before Christmas πŸ™‚ This year I’m planning to carve Stitch into my pumpkin πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments what pumpkin designs you have carved ❀

6 Halloween themed movies I’ll be watching this year :)

6 Halloween themed movies I’ll be watching this year :)

I have become such a lover of Halloween over the last few years and one of the main things that I love to do is watching Halloween themed movies πŸ™‚ I wrote a blog post a few years ago about some of my favourite Halloween movies that are my must watches during the spooky season but this year I have added a few more to the list πŸ™‚ Some of them are actual Halloween movies and some have a great Halloween scene or have a definite spooky vibe/great villain πŸ™‚ I hate Horror movies so all of the Halloween movies I have picked in both of the lists I don’t think are too scary πŸ™‚

  1. Halloweentown- I watched Halloweentown many many years ago but haven’t watched it since but I came across it on Disney + the other day and it triggered a long forgotten memory so I have been wanting to watch it ever since πŸ™‚ Screenshot 2020-10-21 at 16.20.28
  2. Beetlejuice- I have actually never seen Beetlejuice the film however I have listened to the soundtrack of the musical and I absolutely love it so thought I would finally watch the movie πŸ™‚ img_9200
  3. Coco- Coco takes place on The Day of the Dead which this year is the 2nd of November and is a Mexican celebration where people gather to pray for and remember the people in their lives who have passed away but just be warned this movie will definitely make you cry!!

  4. The Haunted Mansion- This is another film on this list that I have never seen but I have heard so many people talk about and I had no idea that Madame Leota was from this film! I found it on Disney + the other day in their Halloween collection and I am actually really excited to finally watch it πŸ™‚ Screenshot 2020-10-21 at 16.20.58
  5. Mean Girls- I realise that this definitely isn’t a Halloween movie however it does have some of the best quotes about Halloween and one of my favourite Halloween scenes with Cady dressed as an ex wife which is truly iconic! Screenshot 2020-10-21 at 16.28.47
  6. Harry Potter- I always love watching the Harry Potter series around this time of year as especially the first few films have such a cosy vibe to me and I absolutely love the scene of the great hall covered in Pumpkins for the Halloween feast πŸ™‚

Decorating for Halloween 2020 :)

Decorating for Halloween 2020 :)

I am such a big Halloween fan: I watch non-scary Halloween movies throughout September and October, always carve a pumpkin, decorate my room with pumpkins and autumnal bits, drink hot chocolate non-stop and love the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (I know I’m basic :p). This year I have stepped my decorating up a notch and have added some Harry Potter bits to my room as Harry Potter always have a Halloween feel to me, put back up my few Halloween bits and have purchased quite a few Halloween bits as well πŸ™‚ I thought I would show you guys the few bits I have added to my room to make it a bit more Autumnal and Halloweenie πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you are someone who decorates for Halloween and absolutely loves the autumnal season or if you’re someone who always skips straight to Christmas πŸ™‚

Halloween Playlist Part 3: Disney Villain Songs :)

Halloween Playlist Part 3: Disney Villain Songs :)

One of the ways that I love to get into the spirit of a holiday is to listen to music related to it so a few years ago I wrote a blog post about some of the songs I listen to during the Halloween season and then I wrote another one last year as well πŸ™‚ At Disney they celebrate Halloween by showcasing the Disney villains which I thought was a really cool idea so I thought that for my third Halloween playlist I would list some of my favourite Disney villain songs πŸ™‚ (I know technically Anastasia isn’t technically Disney but since Anastasia is Fox and Disney have since acquired Fox studios I thought I would count it)

  1. Hellfire- The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  2. Be Prepared- The Lion King
  3. Poor Unfortunate Souls- Little Mermaid
  4. Mother Knows Best- Tangled
  5. Friends on the other side- The Princess and the Frog
  6. Shiny- Moana
  7. Oogie Boogie Song- The Nightmare Before Christmas
  8. Prince Ali (reprise)- Aladdin
  9. In the dark of the night- Anastasia
  10. Cruella De Vil- 101 Dalmations

Let me know in the comments what your favourite Disney villain song is πŸ™‚
