Creepy Candles

Okay, this candle isn’t creepy but it it smells beautiful and it’s only £2.99 from Home Bargains. I love these candles and we’re building up a lovely collection of different ‘flavours’ ahead of Christmas (I know, I said it!). I love the burnt orange colour and the scent is subtle but lovely, plus they burn for up to 95 hours! Warren also had the fab idea of re-using the jars afterwards 🙂

Scary Skulls

I’m pretty addicted to skulls. They’re awesome, and I have loads dotted around our house. I couldn’t resist this one from Flying Tiger (£5), it’s so gorgeous and I love seeing it on my desk. It somehow reminds me of Frida Kahlo and that’s always a good thing!

Spooky Snacks

We usually go snack crazy, but with the vegan element to our family it’s hard to know what to choose. Marks & Spencer have a few options, including these scrummy Spooky Ghosts & Vampires (£2). I can’t wait to have a munch on these!
