For Halloween me and the boyfriend spent the weekend together.
FridayWe went shopping in Brighton. Specifically we were looking for the perfect vintage thick knit cream jumper for me. I get very a specific idea of what I want and I will look every where for the exact vision in my head. In the end we didn't make a decision so instead I bought 12 Krispy Kreme doughnuts as a Halloween treat. (it's not something I normally do). The special Halloween ones tasted like orange and were all sparkly and looked good with my nails! Purple + orange = perfect Halloween combo! On the way back to the car we saw some interesting graffitti, it makes me think of V for Vendetta. I need to watch that film again!
SaturdayWe went back into town to again look for that chunky knit jumper and we found it! Downstairs in the vintage section of Juju for £30, which was a pretty good deal. Harry (my boyfriend) offered to pay for a 1/3 of it, which was sweet ♥.
He decided he wanted a cool jacket, so we tried some out in To Be Worn Again (both of them) but being so tall and broad shouldered none of them fit. Eventually we found the perfect one in Snooper's Paradise, it's a dark blue velvet blazer and I'm so jealous of it! It doesn't even suit me at all so I can't steal it! I've decided I want one similar to it but in dark green.Later, we went to the annual White Night festival. It's an event where loads of different places and areas around Brighton do all sorts of artsy installations and activites. I had picked up a leaflet about it and that morning we had spent time deciding which things to go to, which was hard since there was so much going on.
SundayWe carved the pumpkins we had bought the day before. We did this last year as well, that being the first time Harry had ever carved a pumpkin (what kind of childhood doesn't involve pumpkin carving?) so it made me very happy to introduce to him the immense fun of plunging your fist into that big old vegetable and pulling out handfuls of gunge. He went for the Aperture Science logo from Portal (my idea!) and I went for a girly Ms. Pumpkin.
It was a good Halloween weekend.
