Happy Halloween!

In Hungary Halloween is not a holiday 😦 When I was in elementary school I spent a few years in the USA with my parents, so I got to know and like this holiday.  So each year we carve a pumpkin with Blackberry #1 and this year Blackberry #2 joined in the fun too 🙂

Here is our pumpkin:

As for costumes, we celebrate carnival in february, so here are some costumes (for Blackberry #1) from previous years:

Halloween crafts afternoon

On Friday there was a Halloween crafts afternoon at Blackberry #1’s pre-school.

There was lots to do. Home made play dough, vegetables and fruits and nuts to make animals, and they had face painting so this way anybody could get a “costume”.

Here is what Blackberry #1 made:

Image

Play dough pumpkins and angry birds:)

Image

Pear hedgehog and apple ladybug.

Image

Walnut mouse.

And some more photos:

Someone offered to take our picture! Please excuse the cotton ball in my ear 😦 I have an ear infection 😦

Have you done any Halloween crafts this year?

Weekend Photo Challenge /Week 7/: Posing

This challenge is not easy. Blackberry #2 doesn’t know how to pose yet and Blackberry #1 doesn’t like it if I photograph him, he usually runs away. So it is rare to catch him posing.

Eszter at kukolina:

 

http://kukolina.wordpress.com/2013/10/24/do-you-remember-what-you-looked-like-1-2-3-4-and-5-autumns-ago/

and Beth at Beauty in Beta: http://beautyinbeta.co.uk/2013/10/23/autumn-tag/

did an Autumn Tag, so I decided to join in the fun to celebrate this wonderful season we call autumn 🙂

 
Favorite thing about Autumn?

 

How the leaves turn yellow and red! And Indian Summer! The warmest days of autumn, they are my favorite, since I am a summer girl 🙂 We are having Indian summer now, yesterday was 24 Celsius!  🙂

 

 

 

Favorite drink?

 

When Autumn comes warm drinks are welcome again. I love Coffee in all forms: Latte, Cappuccino, Mochaccino, Macchiato. Unfortunately we don’t have a Starbucks where I live, I would love to taste the Pumpkin Spice Latte some of you are blogging about 😦
I also love hot chocolate and when the weather cools down, I start drinking tea again: Black tea, Green tea, Fruit tea. Today for breakfast I had Lavazza Coffe and Jing Tea, English Breakfast flavour with lemon and honey and also had  2 crepes with Nutella 🙂

 

Favorite scent?

 

In Candles I love vanilla and berry scents:) I also love Lancome Green Tea perfume.

 

Best lipstick?

 

I don’t wear lipstick. I am not good at it. I forget it is there and I smudge it 😦
I do like lip gloss and lip balm.

I like the shea butter lip balm from L’Occitane.

 

 

 

Go to moisturizer?
I use Clinique moisture surge. I  also use their clairifying lotion.
 
Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

 

 Go to colours for the eyes?

 

In Autumn I think brown clolours look really good for the eyes.

 

Favorite band/singer to listen to?

 

I really love the movie Pitch perfect. Here is one of the song from it:
The cup song. I want to learn the cup choreography:)
 

 

Favorite outfit to wear?

 

In the fall I can finally wear scarves. I have a bunch of them, I got most of them when I was in Turkey.

 

Autumn Treat?

 

Pies, Cakes, Muffins:) Anything sweet:)
 

 

 I had one of these yesterday. It is called an Ischler.

 

Favorite place to be?
 
As soon as it gets cold, I always wish I was somewhere warm 🙂
 
Here are some autumn photos:
This is what autumn looks like in our city:

Weekend Photo Challenge /Week 5/: Sleeping

So this week the theme is sleeping!

I like this theme. For one it is easier to take a photo of :)

As for me I don’t have any pictures of me sleeping, since I am the one taking the pthotos. HA-HA

Also I have a 10 month old, so sleep is not one thing I get alot of. Sleeping is my hobby nowdays, and one thing I long for:)

If I had a choice to go to the cimena or sleep, I would sleep…

Ok, you get the point, I am majorly sleep deprived.

So here are some sleeping beauties:

Blackberry #1:

In this photo Blackberry #1, when he was mini, is getting ready for bed. Check out the pumpkin pjs! Ha-ha. Blackberry #1 was a pacifier addict! He usually walked around with 3 of them, 1 in his
mouth and 2 more in each of his hands…
Then when he was nearly 3, he yawned and dropped his paci into the toilet. OH-OH! I told him the Pacifier Fairy takes these pacis and brings a small gift instead. For a few days he would ask, when
is the Pacifier Fairy cleaning his paci and bringing it back, but after he got a Mater car (from CARS), he stopped asking, and finally our pacifier days were over.
