I feel like Halloween is becoming bigger and more Americanised (if thats a word) every year, but I'm happy to embrace this as I simply love an excuse for a party, bit of dress up and a reason to just generally do something out of the ordinary.
Last year was our first year of trick or treating and I thought my three year old would be extremely scared but she absolutely loved it (people in my area really went for it big time), we were walking the streets for 2 hours and weirdly I really loved every minute of it. I can't wait to take our 2 year old out this year as well... let's hope he loves it as much as his big sis!
As far as the dress up side of halloween goes, there is so much in the shops but it's hard to find pieces that are great quality, can be used not only for halloween and that are actually not tacky so I've found these fab pieces perfect for the kids and adults!
