#CBLoves | Halloween and Beyond

The blogger-sphere exploded with a mountain of Halloween-related content over this past week. Here’s our favourite picks of the bunch, taking us through the spookiest weekend of the year.

Golden Glow shared this fantastic tutorial for adorable Bambi-inspired makeup  – and if the dress code calls for something more sinister than a cute animated deer, then cover yourself in fake blood and go as (Spoiler Alert) Bambi’s mum!

If you’re looking for something more toned down and subtle, can we suggest a horror-themed manicure – like this simple spooky eye mani from Chalkboard Nails. Whip out the glow in the dark nail polish to take it up a level!

If you don’t fancy hacking apart a pumpkin this Halloween, how about chopping up a pineapple and filling your home with delicious fruity fragrances. Mod Cloth shared how-to in their blog this week! Chop up the pineapple and eat it with yoghurt, or make a retro pineapple upside down cake.

If you’re hosting a Halloween party this weekend, these decorated cupcakes might be just the thing to satisfy your (and your guests) sweet tooth. Style & Splurging decorated them with pumpkin orange and zombie green icing and some adorable/sinister decorations. (Severed finger, anyone?)

Continuing with the theme of Halloween entertaining, how about this Eyeball Martini mocktail from Annie Eats? Made with lemonade, blueberry sauce, melon and blueberries, it’ll be popular with kids and grownups alike. Spike it with a glug of gin, and replace the lemonade for tonic water for an grown up version.

Happy Halloween everyone – hope you have a wonderful weekend!
