Happy November.

Comment 1 Standard

This is it guys, Halloween is over – time to pack the pumpkins back in the box, hang up your fangs and pop those sexy cat ears back in the draw for next year.

But don’t be sad – this is a good thing. Because now we are in NOVEMBER! And this means, Fireworks, Bonfires, Remembrance Day, GF’s Birthday, Christmas Markets and the countdown to Christmas itself!

I love this time of the year and I think this is also a great chance to start the season of with some festive loving and blog sharing.

I’ve hand selected three bloggers that I want to share with you all (it was hard to pick as if I could I would share and write about all my followers, as they are amazing people) but for this moment here are three that I strongly suggest you check out, follow and make friends with.


Nicole

 

Nicole – My Superhero Cousin with the Irish Blood. – What an absolute gem, kooky, crazy, funny and sweet. Sometimes she needs a wee boost of pick me up. But we all do every so often. Nicole is real, her photography on Insta are amazing and just all round swell gal. Go check her out and say hey. Twitter, Blog, Instagram.

 

 


Abbie 🐢🌱

 

Abbie – If I were King Arthur she’d be my Holy Grail, amazing, captivating but out of reach. Geographically we are miles apart. But that doesn’t stop me from loving everything about her – nailing Blogtober like a boss, rocking a new quirky hair style or sipping gin. The list goes on. She is incredibly supportive and well worth a good follow. Twitter. Blog. Instagram.

 

 


Matthew

Matt – My man! The lad. I don’t know about you dude, but I bet we’d be great drinking buddies in another life. If it’s not takeaways, his dogs or suits he is posting some stunning photography and my god I mean it’s something amazing. Well worth a follow if you ask me. Twitter. Blog. Instagram.

 

 

 


Also for any of my Insta / Twitter fans you will see I dressed up as POTUS Donald Trump. Which was awesome, so much fun and as we know I love dressing up. Didn’t I mention it [Yes, Here] – anyway here is me and then here is the results of the voting from the office competition.

I WON!

Fancy Fancy Dress

Comments 10 Standard

I have decided to throw a bit of a fun post out.

Just to keep you smiling as this week drags on. I feel you need a Humph and some motivation to get to the weekend and hopefully this will draw a little smile out and for a moment be a saving grace.

. . . sometimes I truly just waffle on don’t I.

Let’s talk about Fancy Dress.

Honestly I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker for a chance to dress up and I don’t hold back. If I’m doing it – I am doing it right. Maybe I should do it professionally or help other people – which I can do, took the challenge to help my friend get a full costume within a couple of hours of a party for as cheap as possible. Nailed it!

My all time favourite costume that I have done is the above. The Invisible Man. It was hot and warm but paid off when I would walk past people and they would gasp in awe and praise me for an amazing effort. This was Halloween 2015 – a night in town. Wearing a dressing gown, who was really loving life. Thankfully I didn’t get ID’ed anywhere. That would have been fun.

Other dress ups include; The Nun from the Conjuring for Halloween ’16, a wasteland raider for Halloween ’17, The Swedish Chef for Eurovision ’17, A Gun toting Spaniard for Eurovision ’16 and a Leprechaun for Eurovision ’15 (but if you remember rightly – Ireland didn’t make it to the final, so I had to tweak the full leprechaun costume that I had put together, adding a prisoners hat and shackles I adopted the guise of an Irish immigrant prisoner that had been sent to Australia. Not bad hey)

I’ve also done Doc Brown for a charity office event. There is an OAP snap in the middle somewhere from a night at Uni, the same with the Smurf and a Zombie Geek (posing passed out on the loo, but not actually passed out) and also The Hulk which took a lot of time and planning. Body paint isn’t a quick job – but boy it sure was fun.

I would love to know what you have dressed up as, send me your best. Also let me know what you think to my efforts. Let’s be honest you are so inviting me to your next fancy dress party aren’t you.

Much love!
