I am currently sipping hot chocolate from my pumpkin mug, with my autumnal candle on (called Autumn Night by Yankee) and I just feel so cosy and content right now. Of course the perfect setting for my Fall/Halloween haul…
Pumpkins, Horror movies, scary decorations and hot chocolates I am all for! I know that horror movies might not be for everyone but I’m ok with them. I love a good classic Halloween film on Halloween, I mean it’s just gotta happen right?
However, this isn’t a horror movie haul but it is a haul. I decided to venture out in celebration (by myself because sometimes I just need to be alone haha) of me finishing my masters. Plus there is nothing I love more than decorating for Fall/Autumn (apart from Christmas). So let’s get into it…
First of all, I have to say the main reason I went Fall shopping was because I really wanted a garland. I have been watching a lot of videos of American Youtubers (and wishing that these shops were in the UK), and fell in love with the cute garland’s in these videos. Thus, I had to get my hands on one of my own. I found these in TK Maxx and honestly I love them! Definitely would look cute around the fireplace, and I can’t wait to find a place for these in my room.
**So I must say everything I have bought in this haul is from TK Maxx/Homesense.**
The next thing I bought were these cute 3 tier pumpkin statue things (I am great at this right haha). They have that pourri stuff inside of them as well, so smell very nice! Also as you can see in the picture I bought this cute little sign that says “beware” and has three little pumpkins on top. I just thought it would look great hanging on my door to my bedroom, and it’s not too spooky.
I also purchased two little pumpkins, one was white and had this brown/golden metal leaf attached to it and the other was orange and had a light inside which you could turn on. I thought these would look cute in front of the fireplace or even in a bedroom etc. I just wanted some pumpkins that were not real that I could use to decorate and these were perfect. I also got this pumpkin with a spider web on it soap dispenser, which is going to look great in the bathroom! They did do some other cool ones like a ghost or a cat or a taller pumpkin one but I adored this one more.
Next I picked up some party bits for the actual Halloween day, because myself and Ryan always have like party food on Halloween as a tradition whilst we watch a horror movie. Therefore, I got these cute little witches’ hats and these cool black and gold spider web plates. I actually had an idea of making a garland out of the witches’ hats- which I may still do. Nevertheless, I thought both of these were cool and the colours really matched each other well.
I also found these creepy but cool light up ornaments. The one on the right reminds me of the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland… anyone else? I just thought these were perfect for on my windowsill and when I am chilling watching TV in the evenings I can switch them on and it will have a spooky vibe.
Lastly, I picked up this black branch or tree thing. I don’t really know I was just feeling it and thought it would be a great decoration for Halloween. It will probably go on the table in my bedroom, or in the corner of the room. Also I picked up a candle which was “spicy orange”. I am not gonna lie as much as I love the look of pumpkin candles and it makes me all into the fall spirit, I HATE the smell of pumpkin candles (sorry not sorry). Honestly I wish I would like them but it just smells like feet to me (now Nick Jonas- Introducing me is in my head- if you know you know). However, this candle smelt amazing and I thought at least it is orange and goes with the Fall theme in my life right now.
Let me know in the comments what is your favourite thing about Fall/Autumn?
Well that is the end of my Fall haul, wow that was a mouthful haha. I am honestly so excited for when myself and Ryan move out and these will all come with me and I can fully go all out on decorating our house for September-October. It will be great. Also I would honestly love to be in America for like the whole of September-Start of November to just fully experience Fall/Halloween. Maybe one day.
