4 TV Shows to binge watch this Halloween

Friday, 21 October 2016

WOOP its Friday. The weekend is here and whats the best way to spend your weekend??! By binge watching TV shows of course! Thats definitely my ideal weekend, just throw in some pizza, comfy clothes and wine and I am one very happy bunny.
As its almost Halloween Ive rounded up my top 4 tv shows to binge watch on Netflix. 

This show follows Dexter Morgan, a forensics officer for Miami PD who is a full time serial killer. Its filled with lots of gore, lots of suspense and some rather sickening storylines. Its a show where I got completely emotionally invested in pretty much every character. All though this is a brilliant TV show to binge watch this Halloween there are 10 seasons so you may still end up watching it next October.  

Pretty Little Liars 
If you're not a huge fan of horrors then PLL is perfect for you. Im sure most of you watch it already but its so good that its always worth the mention. This show has you constantly guessing and there are loads of different twists and turns in the storyline. 

The Vampire Diaries 
This is the TV show Im binge watching at the moment and Im obsessed. Its full of gore, gorgeous vampires, a twisted love triangle and a lot of town drama. I actually started watching this when it first came out and I watched it for years but somewhere along season 4-5 I missed a few episodes and I never ended up catching up with them. So cut to a month ago, I decided to re-watch the whole thing. Oh, and Im #TeamDamon if you were wondering. Never has being a vampire looked so hot!

American Horror Story: Murder House, Asylum & Coven
If you don't know much about AHS, then where have you been over the last few years?! Each season had a different theme but they stick with mostly the same cast. Murder House is the first season where the Truman family move across the country to an old and very haunted house in Hollywood. It shows them trying to rebuild their family after an affair and brings up a lot of old murder stories. Season two is based in an Insane Asylum back in the 1960's. Can I just say Jessica Lange plays an amazing character in this season. She is amazing. Season 3 is Coven. Its based in New Orleans and it follows the lives of a Coven of Salem witches. It is obviously scary because its AHS but theres quite a bit of witty humour, love and Emma Roberts plays possibly the bitchiest characters.

What is your favourite TV show to binge watch at this time of the year?

A Festive Lush Haul

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Last Friday I dragged my mum into Lush, much to her dismay, and I treated myself to some new products. I haven't been feeling 100% recently so I needed a little pick-me-up in the form of bath products and Ive been watching loads of Lush haul & demo videos and specifically Halloween and Christmas ones.

Expectations vs. Reality: Autumn Edition

I really love Autumn and I know most people do (especially us bloggers) and we all get super excited for it because it means Christmas is getting closer and Lush releases their A/W collection! OMG! And how could I forget about the pumpkin spice lattes?! I finally tried one over the weekend for the very first time and I now 100% understand the hype. I have been craving one ever since! #BASICBITCHANDPROUD

But sometimes our expectations are completely different to our reality so I rounded up a few that make me giggle and are soo true.

My easy "lazy girl" pamper evening: Autumn edit

Friday, 7 October 2016

I love a good ol' pamper evening, I mean who doesnt? Having soft skin and fresh nails and some "me" time. I would say Im far too busy to spend extra time on myself but Im really not, Im just lazy (and ill). But do you know what? Even us lazy gals, and guys, can pamper ourselves in a short time so even if you do have a busy life you can still treat yourself. So grab a good book, light some candles and get ready to chillax.

3 in 1 cleanser and face mask. This is perfect if you have spotty and oily skin like I do because it tackles both of those problems in just a couple of minutes. 

If you like having tanned skin, instead of doing a full on fake tanning routine just switch out your usual moisturiser for a gradual tanner and you will kill two birds with one stone. You'll have beautiful hydrated skin with a healthy tan in no time. I love Doves gradual tanner because it really does give you that healthy bit of colour if you are as ghostly white as I am and it smells like apricots! 

Its lovely to spend some money getting your nails done and its sometimes nice to spend and hour paining your own nails and letting them dry but if you want a quick manicure invest in your own UV light or even some gel nail polish that doesn't require a light to set the shade. Barry M have some amazing gelly nail varnish that gives off the same look as gel nails but without the whole process of setting the polish. 

If you love taking showers at night then this one is for you. Instead of using a hair mask that requires you leaving it on for ages (because who has time for that?!) then try out the Aussie 3 minute miracle, or even better slather some coconut oil on your locks and shampoo it out for shiny and nourished hair.  This is my sisters favourite thing to do and her hair is #hairgoals .

This is such a simple thing to do but by wearing some nice pyjamas and slippers, you can instantly feel a bit more pampered and put together. Primark do some really pretty and cheap pj sets or if you want to spend a bit more money on them, M&S do some beautiful, silky sets. 

What are some of your "lazy girl" pamper essentials?
