HOW TO DO HALLOWEEN, WHEN YOU'RE TOO OLD FOR TRICK OR TREATING.

19:00

Either you've become too old for trick or treating and have no younger siblings to chaperone , or are now a full-time adult and can't spend your evening downing bloody Mary's next to the Joker in the pub. Halloween is probably my favourite holiday so I believed it should be spent in the spirit whether you're going out or staying home. Here are some ideas for a fun filled halloween in the comfort of your (or somebody els's) home.


HAVE A GOOD OLD FASHIONED (HALLOWEEN) SLEEPOVER

Nothing beats a night in with your pals stuffing your faces with candy meant for the kids whilst watching a bunch of sh*t your pants movies. If you're stuck on something to watch, click here to see what some of my readers favourite horror movies were. If you want to give it that Halloween twist, play a prank on your most vulnerable friend. We've done this in the past after watching "Annabelle" and it consisted of hiding my brothers stuffed toys around the house and on top of the fan, it then flew off when my mum switched it on and hit her right in the face and it was pretty hilarious. We also went through a habit in first year of doing weird things to Brad's room whenever we watched a scary movie, like writing on the mirror with lipstick and sticking "scary" pictures to the walls. 

BAKE HALLOWEEN TREATS

Last week my friends over at The Co-operative sent me a box full of Halloween treats to recreate some of their spooktacular recipes, with the help of my little brother we managed to create some "Benjamin Bones Brownies" some "Spooky Toothy S'mores" and some pepper cauldrons for those of us watching our waist lines. If you're into baking I'm sure you can come up with your own creations, or head to the co-op website for some inspiration!


THROW AN (ADULT) HOUSE PARTY

If you want to go all out and throw a party that will rival Taylor Swift's, grab some bobbing apples, make some punch in a "cauldron", put on some Michael Jackson and have everyone dress up for the occasion. Oh and don't forget the jelly shots! If you know your guests are always hungry, serve them all the fabulous Halloween food you made before for top party points. 



MAKE A SPOOKY AS PLAYLIST

Or if you're lazy, Spotify already has a bunch of them made for you.

CARVE PUMPKINS

Can you believe I carved my first pumpkin in 22 years this week? It's so much fun and I don't know why I never bothered to do it before, it's not exactly a big thing in Gibraltar. If you're pretty arty and want to take it to the next level, Pinterest has some great artistic creations. 

GO TO AN ABANDONED HOUSE 

One of my friends happens to live opposite an abandoned house, so a couple of years ago we did just that. Fair to say we crapped our pants and we were pretty much imagining things by the end of it. If you fancy doing something a bit more professional, look up halloween/haunted walking/bus tours in your area!

THROW ON A CLOWN MASK AND GO SEEK REVENGE ON EVERYONE WHO HAS WRONGED YOU.

I mean if you have no other options and are willing to take a punch in the stomach, just don't get inspired by The Purge.

What are your Halloween plans for this evening? If you're dressing up I'd love to know as what! It's round 2 and Poison Ivy for me tonight.
