Let’s talk about spooky things! Halloween is coming up and it’s a great celebration for those who enjoy it (nothing too sinister for me, please!).
Nowadays, it’s all about Trick or Treat, costumes, partying, spooky décor, carved pumpkins… But what’s Halloween origin? Halloween is celebrated on the night of 31st October, the eve of All Saints’ Day. It’s thought to be associated with Samhain, a Celtic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of Winter, at a time when “the veil between our world and the spirit world is at its thinnest“.
After getting some inspiration from Pinterest, I prepared a little collection as my way to celebrate the holiday.
You can find it here and for you, dear reader, all the items in the collection are available at 20% off, just in time for Halloween – use promo code BHALLOWEEN20 at checkout.
It helps me keep on track with what I need to do and, for me personally, it’s procrastination’s strongest enemy! I’m trying to re-apply it to several aspects of my day-to-day, whether it is at work or home, and I decided it’s time to do it to BeeBiju/Bee’s creations.
I’m therefore introducing this as a structured blog… not too structured though, as I don’t think it would be wise for me to commit to x number of posts per month or specific days across the whole year – that would just bring added pressure, which is precisely what I’m trying to avoid.
My aim is, instead, to focus on different topics, month by month, and include tutorials, ideas, items from my shop, etc. I am also bringing back the Monthly Picks: at the end of each month I will be telling you about my favourite item and that will bring discounts with it!
Onto October… Autumn is here (I can definitely feel it in the air with our 2°C mornings) so let’s talk about Autumn jewellery this month. Let’s bring out the colours and styles for this season!
