5 Halloween party ideas!


It all started back in time,
when I first watched the Hocus Pocus movie.
It was impossible to avoid the excitement of getting dresed for a party
and having fun with your friends, while drinking cider and eating toffee covered apples.
And so, the idea was generated...

Let's have a Halloween party this year, I said to my friends, and everyone said YAS with one voice!

So, if you too are thinking of organising a Halloween party here are a few ideas to follow ::

1. Get your pumpkins game on! Buy a few pumpkins from your local market and place them around the house. Bonus if you remove the top and inside to create vases and bowls for popcorn!

2. Decorate with floral wreaths. Find treasures in the woods (acorns, pine cones etc) and make the best use of them :)

3. Toffee covered apples and popcorn! Yummy.

4. Bake a seasonal treat, this recipe is simply perfect!

5. Don't forget the costumes, because what is Halloween without a bit of dressing up?

Happy Halloween!

In Autumn Mode


Nothing like a good book, 
a handmade knit blanket,
 a good, 
preferably strong and freshly brewed 
coffee to make my mood!

Happy day everyone!

Embracing seasons.


I don't know about you, but this whole autumn vibe has me thrilled!
Picnic, tartan blankets, yellow leaves,
blue bikes, carrot cakes,
baking (in general),
knitting (intimating, but hey ho there's always a beginning for anything new),
coffees and tea leaves.

Who could not be excited about it?

Hello September, let's do this!


Long time no see friends but I am back for good, promise! If there is one thing I am obsessed, over the past cuple years, that is embracing season changes. As much as summer months are my favourite, living under the heat makes me impatient for the fall months. Yellow, orange, brown leaves, spicy latte coffees from Starbucks and cosy knit jumpers have some osrt of their own magic!
And so, on that note, today I am sharing my favourite things to do this time of the year.

WHY I LOVE SEPTEMBER SO MUCH::

-It's not as hot as in summer and ice-creams are still around.
-A dose of fresh air and rain, is so much more refreshing that heatwaves.
-Countryside walks with the puppy!
-Evening afternoon tea in the garden with friends
-pumpkin pies!

So, not tell me friends, what makes September special to you?
