4 ways to celebrate Halloween (in a country that doesn't really celebrates it)

I love Halloween. I love the vibe of it, the theme of it, really everything about it. I'm a person of holidays and I love all the themed things that come with it, like food and decorations as well as the atmosphere. But what should you do when you live in a country that doesn't celebrate it and Halloween parties are scarce and trick and treaters nonexistent? Here are 4 ways I plan to celebrate Halloween this year!

Fall make-up inspired by fall leaves

I got inspired a few weeks ago to create this eye look by the fall leaves. As you can see I picked warm colors as well as a taupe grey. I stay "quite" to the rest of my face and I think, that you can transform this look from morning to night by switching the lips for something darker. Here is how to create the look.

5 Favorite healthy fall recipes

One of the best things about Fall is food. It finally gets cozy enough to enjoy hot soups and seasonal veggies and fruit. Practically everything pumpkin and apple in the list. This year I experimented with fall food and a drink and came across these 5 recipes that became favorites really fast.

Also, I have been on a losing weight journal, so everything here is healthy (well in my book anyway).

Rosewater miracle

Have you ever heard about rosewater? I had been hearing of it for years here and there, as an ingredient in skincare products and a natural remedy for dry skin. But I had never thought of using it. After all, what would some simple water infused with rose petals could do for me? Turns out? Lot more than I had ever imagined.

October's Bullet Journal setup

I got into the world of bullet journaling about a year ago. The idea seemed ridiculously easy and simple. So naturally, at first, I was kind of held back by the lack of decoration in a typical bullet journal. Then came Pinterest and youtube. And so now my bullet journal is my preferred planner.

October is the month I've been the proudest of my decorations in my bullet journal. It's by no means perfect, but I still like it!

Sugar Skull Halloween Make-up (minimal components, last minute)

I love Halloween! It's one of my favorite seasonal holidays and even though it's not celebrated in Greece, I always look forward to it. As proven by older posts here and here. So last year being out of theatrical make-up I created a rather simple, but beautiful make-up and liked it so much I decided to recreate it this year and share it with you. I tried to do a step by step process. Warning: The look isn't mine, I found it on google and tried to create my simpler version.
So this is how to create a simple, last minute, rather easy Sugar Skull with minimal make-up.

Sunprise Mild Airy Finish sunscreen by Etude House review

Summer may be over but your sun protection definitely shouldn't. However, if you have oily skin or if you live in a super hot country like Greece, putting on sunscreen probably sounds like a torture.
