What’s your favourite childhood Halloween memory?


One year, my neighbours held a Halloween party, complete with apple bobbing, pin the tail on the witch and plenty of treats. It was an 8 year old's dream!


What’s your favourite thing about October?


The colours! Every year, the beauty of autumn continues to mesmerise me as the trees are painted in vivid auburns and oranges and the weather is often mild and sunny so you truly enjoy the changing scenery.



Are you a big celebrator of Halloween?


I would definitely say Halloween is a bigger thing in America than it is the UK but regardless I LOVE celebrating it. I have many childhood memories of pumpkin carving (several botched jobs), dressing up as a witch, putting on mum's eyeliner and most outrageous lipstick and then gorging on my "trick or treat" sweets watching Harry Potter. As I got older, I loved going to Halloween parties and would have this year but obviously miss corona has cancelled the party scene!


What’s your favourite horror movie?

I don't really watch horror films but I do like the IT series. Also enjoyed The Purge and anything that could realistically happen to society which makes it even freakier!


Would you rather a cosy night in watching horrors or a big night out in a costume?


I usually spend Halloween out at a party or nightclub in a costume but obvs this year I will be having a night in watching horror films so who knows I might be converted!


Which has been your most favourite costume to date? 


I once wore a handmade costume of Woody from Toy Story which was designed by my friend's mum. Not the most frightening but it was fun to wear!



Bobbing for apples or pin the hat on the witch? 


Bobbing for apples but sadly not this Halloween (thanks rona)


How do you celebrate Halloween? 


As a child, my Halloween's had a familiar routine. Me and my sister would carve our pumpkins (very badly), then dress up for trick or treating, ransack our mum's make up then head out down the lane to collect our sweets! We'd usually watch a Harry Potter and gorge on our candy with our neighbours afterwards. As I got older, I usually celebrated with friends or went to Halloween parties or Halloween-themed nights out (the running theme was alcohol abuse!)


What’s your least favourite horror? 


The Human Centipede. Mainly because I watched this as a 15 year old and have PTSD as a result! Seriously though, it is abhorrent and I don't know how people of any age find it entertaining :/


Do you have a favourite trick or treating memory? 


Probably arriving at the final house and being given a HUGE stash of sweets as we were the last trick-or-treaters for the night- I'm not sure how I wasn't profusely sick after that Halloween!



What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?


The creativity it brings out in people! Several houses near me literally transform their homes into Halloween fun houses and people really go to town on the Halloween decs! Dressing up is also so much fun, you feel like a child again ransacking a costume box!


Scary costume or Silly costume? 


I definitely lean towards silly costumes - they are often more fun to plan and it's liberating not to take yourself seriously


What are your plans for Halloween this year?


This year, I will probably just relax with some horror movies (just realised that is a contradiction of terms), some wine, cheese and chocolate - yum!
