It’s been another manic day, barely sat down all day but I did make sure to carve my pumpkins and create a little beauty all for Halloween night tomorrow. Here’s a little sneaky peak, but you’ll have to wait to see more tomorrow!

Pumpkins

I love this time of year and all the beautiful little pumpkins and autumn leaves.¬† This year I have once again I’ve gone a bit mad with the pumpkin buying, but I thought I’d get a bit longer out of them for decoration this year before carving them up.

First off I had made a bit of an arrangement for my post on Tuesday, and thought to myself how good it would look on our fireplace.¬† I took advantage of mum’s tiredness and talked her in to¬†letting me make an autumn display!¬† Eeks it looks so pretty, just check out my pics!

National Pumpkin Day

image

So today 26th October is National Pumpkin Day! I’ve at least 3 pumpkins in my car just waiting for me to carve when I get some time, so they would be pretty boring to share with you.

image

Instead I headed to Starbucks with dad and picked myself up one of their scrummy Pumpkin Spiced Latte’s!

image

Did you also see on my instagram account these mega cute and stunning little handmade tweed pumpkins I was so kindly given by Love Creative Therapy at the Fine and Dandy Market yesterday?!?! Perfect for National Pumpkin Day I’d say!!!!

Eeks this marks the start my week of Halloween and Pumpkin inspired blogging to finish off the month of October.  Make sure to check in each day and see what I’ve been up to!!!

Little tourists in a big city – the random bits

wpid-img_20151025_104306.jpg

In to this post I’m adding all the little things that 1 would be too small for a blog on their own or 2 are just a bit odd and random, so here we go, the weird and wonderful world of how my wee mind works

TRAVEL

wpid-dsc_0007.jpg

First off at Schiphol Airport we bought a three day travel pass, this included our train to and from the airport to Amsterdam central and any train, tram or bus in and around the city for the three days we were visiting all for only 25 euros.

wpid-dsc_0063_1.jpg

We went on two canal cruises, one during the day, which was the hop on and hop off

wpid-img_20151025_102204.jpg

We didn’t find this one as good, just due to the weather and how dull it was out and about.

I would 100% recommend the night cruise, the canals lit up at night are beautiful

I loved the fact anyone could randomly just sit and play away on the piano in the train station (Amsterdam Central)

At 12.19 am Starbucks is STILL open in Amsterdam

ANNE FRANK HOUSE

You can’t take any pictures inside the Anne Frank House, and unfortunately we couldn’t pre-book so there was a 2 and a half hour wait.
