October Round Up! Photos, Fashion, Tutorials & Inspiration

What a fantastic Autumn! Crunchy leaves and pumpkin pie all round :D I have to admit that saying goodbye to summer is always tricky, but with Halloween and cozy socks to be indulged in through  October, it's been quite the welcomed treat! 

So, incase you missed out on anything during this glorious month, here is our October Round Up!

A snapshot of our lovely wordless wednesday photos. October was full of fog and I made my first ever pumpkin pie. It is sublime! We're big fans of instagram, its super addictive!

I answered your questions on my vintage glasses, shared a sweet autumn get up as well as some super stylish Halloween outfits for Style Me Friday. Do you think you're a ghost or a vampire? Either way you'll look killer in one of these ensembles!

After our little break to Paris last month we had the chance to share with you our favorite places to visit in the city, including a peek into our  Disneyland adventure and some amazing pictures and trinkets collected from our favorite flea markets there. We'd love to go back to all of them!

This month we shared four extra special Halloween tutorials, including how to make an awesome felt sugar skull brooch, a hollow book diy for your store your secret stash in, our favorite recipe for delicious cinder toffee and we even created a set of free printable Frankenstein & Bride of Frankenstein candy boxes for the ultimate trick or treaters visiting you on fright night! It's been spooktacular :D

This month has brought some more great achievements that we are super proud of :) 
We donated one of our prints to raise money for the Pug Rescue Centre at their Pug-O-Ween event and it went for over $50! We're also over the moon that we got to be a guest contributer with our tutorials on Mollie Makes blog and over on Kanelstrand's blog. We also have new products at over in Ginger Pickle's amazing online shop and had our Mr & Mrs prints featured on Blog And Buy Sale. Hooray!

On top of that we somehow had time to hold a stall at the arts market in Edinburgh and have launched few new products in our etsy store. Productive or what!

  1. You had such a creative October!!!! I didn't get around to much myself (needed a break before the holiday season) but you have given me much inspiration!!!! Congrats on the donation to the Pup Rescue. That is awesome.

    1. Aww thanks so much Porsha! I think we're going to try and take a little break during November, but I bet that will fall through! So glad to hear we've given you some good inspiration though :D And thanks for the pug high five! We adore them so it was a lovely cause to get involved with. Fingers crossed we can afford to look after our own one soon!
      Hope you have an excellent month!

  2. Happy Halloween!! ;-)
