So this week I've been looking at Pinterest to find some awesome ideas for Halloween goodies. I was planning on making some cakes for this post but my student budget was a bit restricting *boooooo*.However, I did make some ghost bananas one of my favourite finds this week and this idea was posted by Poundland! So simple, yet so nice! Chop a banana in half, put two chocolate chip eyes and a chocolate button mouth!

I've made these simple milk carton ghosts, which I think look pretty good!
- Draw a face on your carton preferably with a black sharpie.
- Once you've done this cut out the bottom of the milk carton
- Place a white light underneath and switch off the lights!

I've also had the opportunity to dress up this week for work. I'm employed in a fancy dress 80's bar, so this week we went for the THRILLER theme! I didn't have a lot of options for clothing, but made effort with my facepaint and bought some all-black contact lenses from a local fancy dress shop. For me, I felt the contacts were a great addition to the look and I would recommend them to anyone! I bought some last year as well and I've never had problems with them. Many people worry about the online ratings and reviews, I usually do take these into account but from personal use they have been fine for me! The only thing I dislike about them is how long it takes to get them in, I must have been trying to get them in for 40 or so - just as a pre-warning it's not as easy as it may seem!
