Today I received some beautiful gifts from my lovely friend Sonja, a fellow beauty and style blogger! Sonja won my 10K subscribers contest last year and has amazing style. She sent me lots of gorgeous jewellery as well as a pretty pink Essence lipstick. Sonja actually made most of the jewellery herself, the necklaces and two pairs of earrings without tags were handmade by her. Thank you so much, Sonja! You can check out her YouTube channel here.
I also got started on some of my Halloween decorating! First off, I picked up some gourds at the farmers' market. (Don't mind the sweet peppers, ha ha!)
Here's how the gourds looked after I cleaned them up and put them in a bowl on the kitchen table!
I put one of the mini pumpkins on the windowsill in the living room...next to the most delicious candy corn scented candle!!
I put the other one on the windowsill in the sun room along with a little wooden pumpkin decoration I got in TK Maxx and a light-up witchy decoration from Hanley's Garden Centre.
Finally, I hung my felt witchy garland at the kitchen window! I love having my Halloween decorations where passers by can see them :) I got this at TK Maxx (they have a lot of great stuff in their homeware section!). I can't wait to pick up our big pumpkins with Jonathan and some more decorations at the Halloween store.
Have you decorated your house for Halloween? Do you usually bother or do you go all out?
