“Some people are born for Halloween, and some people are just counting the days until Christmas.” Stephen Graham Jones

I don’t dislike Halloween and I’m perfectly happy getting into the spirit of things (excuse the pun!). In fact, the gaggle of primary school sized witches and ghouls who appeared at my door on Thursday evening were a delight. Also, babies dressed as pumpkins…๐Ÿงก

Still, all that aside, for me Halloween has always just been that little distraction before bonfire night and once that has gone? Well it’s full throttle to Christmas. I’m definitely a counting the days until Christmas kind of girl.

As you can see, I already have my Christmas Day hairband. I may tone down the eyeliner for family Christmas lunch though; I don’t want to frighten the nieces!

Sinful Sunday

    That is very clever but also scary. You look amazing – loving the red bow!

    I love the way that you have combined Christmas and Halloween here and it works so well with your quote. The spider is brilliant and makes me wonder what it looks like with an open eye. ๐Ÿ™‚

      It looks dreadful with an open eye! I tried both!

  3. Molly

    Oh I can’t think about Christmas just yet


  4. PurpleSole

    Lovely spider eye, I personally can’t wait for Christmas so why not celebrate both

  5. LittleSwitchBitch

    Spider aside I really think you look absolutely beautiful this image x

  6. Tabitha Rayne

    Yes! I love these little celebrations – and I adore this look for you – the filter (or technique) you’ve used is beautifully painterly x x

  7. Focused and Filthy

    I love the creativity of this …. especially set with the sparkly headwear. Perfect!

    Fabulous image. I don’t mind Halloween, and I don’t mind Christmas, but I always breathe a sigh of relief when we are in the first week of January…

  12. kisungura

    Love the combination of the two events, it certainly feels full throttle to Christmas now…that feels scarier than Halloween somehow!

  13. MariaSibylla

    Your are adorable! as a fellow Christmas person, your enthusiasm brings me so much joy ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, you look stunning in this photo!

  14. Bibulousone

    Wonderful, if rather scary, image.

  15. Bee

    You can keep your Xmas sparkles, give me spiders and all the scary fun instead. I actually love your spider so much I may have to borrow he idea next year.
