How to have a chilled night in this Halloween
Halloween is awesome, but not everyone enjoys dressing up in layers of face-paint and heading out on the town. I know I'd rather be snuggled up with something mildly spooky than have to totter home in the cold and remove all my zombie makeup before bed. If you'd prefer a chilled one too then this post is for you! I've put together a few recommendations:
Get cosyIf you're staying in for the night then it makes sense to comfy, so get under your favourite blanket and light some candles.Take it to the next level and get your hygge on if you fancy - check out this post for advice. Plus, the added benefit of candlelight is that you won't have so many kids coming to the door!
Grab some sweet treatsWhich brings me to my next point. Is it even Halloween without a little candy? I prefer a big bar of chocolate to Haribo spiders but hey, whatever floats your boat - treat yoself!
Paint some witchy nailsThis time of year is the perfect excuse to go a little more gothic on the nail polish. Whether you go all-out with black or stick with a classic vampy red like Essie Bordeaux, a little pamper goes a long way.
Put on some themed entertainmentConfession time: I don't like 'proper' horror films! I love Halloween, I love gothic stuff, and I love films with a bit of darkness and mystery, but the thought of a Saw or Paranormal Activity marathon scares the crap out of me. For lighter viewing material I love a good Tim Burton movie, or even something spoofy like the Addams Family (Wednesday 4eva) or Sean of the Dead.
There are also plenty of creepy books you could read if you fancy a nightmare or too, and there's bound to be reruns of the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror specials on somewhere!
Are you spending Halloween at home? Or maybe you're not that into it? Let me know in the comments below.
