Autumn means colder weather, hot chocolate and most importantly, HALLOWEEN. Our fave spooky season is finally upon us and we’ve listed the 5 stages every gal goes through in the run up to October 31st…


1. The initial excitement

Since the minute you saw the first orange leaf on the ground you’ve been buyin’ pumpkins to carve and mentally planning your killer outfit.


2. Finding the costume

There’s 2 types of people when it comes to Halloween outfits: Those who’ve been planning since September and go all out to SLAY…

…and those who just CBA. We’ve all got that friend who goes as ‘something dark’ every year.


3. The sugar overload

Is it even Halloween if you don’t over-do it on the sugary sweets? We miss the days of trick-or treating when sugary goodness was literally dropped into our hands.


4. Watching scary films

Getting your pals round for a scary movie marathon is essential for getting into the proper Halloween spirit… and turning it into a sleepover when you’re all too scared to sleep on your own.


5. Deciding where to go

To go out, or to house party? Tryin’ to get the squad to all decide on somewhere takes most of October.


6. When its over

Before you know it it’s all over, but you know you get to do it all again next year.
