Who doesn't love Halloween? It's the only day of the year that you can see vampires, zombies, bloodied nurses, dead celebrities or skeletons walking down the street and think it's completely normal. On my way home from work on Friday I passed Marilyn Monroe, Dr Jekyll and someone in a dressing gown, slippers and hair rollers - I didn't bat an eyelash.
On account of the fact that I spent the weekend in Milan (travel post up soon) I had to have my Halloween celebrations a little early on Thursday night. After much debate about my costume I decided simple was best - I was going to go as "dead". When I told my mum my choice she expressed her horror and said why couldn't I go as something "alive". Clearly she missed the entire concept of Halloween somewhere along the line [bless her little cotton socks].
I had a grand old time doing my make up - there's something so satisfying about going out looking ugly and dishevelled on purpose. Honestly I wish I could do it more often. I did my make-up with some white paint, a whole lot of eyebrow pencil, eyeliner and of course fake blood. Tada!
