I love this time of year. Autumn, Halloween, Bonfire Night, looking forward to Winter & Christmas. I prefer this time of year to summer! So it makes sense that I would share some of the things I’ve been up to.
Halloscream at York Maze – Wednesday 28th October
Since I was being chased with chainsaws, going in trippy rooms with distorted walls and being separated from my friends by the creepy looking staff. I was having too much of an adrenaline rush to take any of my own photos. York Maze host this every year for a few nights around Halloween and it is so fun! Maybe don’t go if you’re easily scared 😉 each section is themed differently, this year had a freak show, a 010101 building where you get separated and get lost, an 1800s trip back to York, a war with gas masks and a crazy house full of clowns that make you feel like you’re high. If you’re into horror, definitely check this out next year or a similar event if you don’t live near York.
Halloween House Party – Saturday 31st October
On Saturday, me and my housemates hosted our own party! I painted my face as a skull (which is pretty easy to do with an eyeliner pencil and some face paint) and wore a black swing dress with skull hands. Going out-out on Halloween can be a bit overwhelming if you’re not comfortable with huge crowds like me so this was a good alternative. We even made disgusting looking (but actually quite nice) Sewer Water Punch! Just mix vodka, orange juice with pulp and Dr. Pepper and you’re set.
Fireworks Display – Thursday 5th November
Tonight is the 5th November as I’m writing this post and I’ve been back to York Maze again for their Bonfire Night display! Got a little bit tipsy on mulled wine and watched the pretty colours. What’s not to love about being with friends, booze and something stunning to watch?
Now it’s Christmas I’ve got to look forward to 😀
