I am so in love with Autumn, the colours changing, leaves falling off the trees, crisp sunny weekends, pulling on chunky knits, pumpkins everywhere - not to mention pumpkin spiced lattes. ๐Ÿ˜

As a child, my obsession with all things macabre and a love of dressing up meant Halloween was always one of my favourite times of year, and at 32 nothing much has changed!

I've been collecting pumpkins and dotting them around the house, bags of pick 'n' mix have been purchased so we're all geared up for tonight's ghoulish festivities.

My pumpkin obsession is real. ย

I absolutely love a good Halloween party and was lucky enough to go to a fabulous one in central London this weekend. Everyone made an amazing effort, Hallowzeem hosted yearly by the fabulous Azim Majid. Beetlejuice, Mad Hatters, Pinocchio, Prince and Eleven from Stranger Thing's were amoung my favourites.

Not one but two Beetlejuices! ย

I decided, rather late in the day, to go as a creepy mime artist / clown, cobbled an outfit together and had a go at ghoulish clown make up.

I used a very light concealer by Kevin Acoyn, brown & black eyeshadow, black eyeliner and red lipstick to create this look. ย

My wonderfully creative friends Jerri and Chris went as Jon Snow and Khaleesi from Game of thrones, amazing, especially considering Chris made the outfits.

It took me the best part of the weekend to recover from the party! But spent Saturday in the fresh air at Riverford farm's pumpkin day. A great family day out visiting Upper Norton Farm in Hampshire, I took my sister and two nieces.

There were farm animals to pet, a horse drawn carriage ride around the fields, a free pumpkin per ticket and a even a worm dig!

I also visited Longstock Nurseries at the Leckford Estate near Stockbridge this weekend, a beautiful garden centre on the estate that's owned by Waitrose. I took my niece to practise some photography and we weren't disappointed.

The rolling estate and garden centre offered plenty to snap.ย 

I was in pumpkin / squash heaven!!
