As is becoming traditional this Halloween will be spent visiting my brother and his family
My sister in law is taking me to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Monday afternoon
and then that afternoon we'll be taking my niece and nephew trick or treating!
I also have next week off of work and am hoping to get in lot's of Christmas planning and shopping so I can enjoy the festive season and not spend Christmas morning frantically finishing off wrapping presents!!
Have a great weekend everyone!

I was recently sent a bottle from the Radox Bath Smoothies range to test and review which I was more than happy with as lately I've been loving my bath time (esp on a Sunday evening after X Factor!!)
I received Soul Soother which incorporates chamomile, blackcurrant and cranberry all to help "calm the mind" so really perfect for that end of the day bath and a pleasant alternative to Lavender and of course some cranberry helps get us into the Christmas spirit!
You can see from the photo I've made a dent in the bottle already although very little is required to have a fabulous bubbly bath and the smell in my bathroom is gorgeous - and my skin feels just that after too!
Radox also included "The Ultimate Bath Report" so here are some interesting facts for you on bathing!
Did you know 37% of bathers read a book in the bath yet only 3% play with a rubber duck!
The temperature for the perfect bath is 38 degrees!
Oddly (in my opinion!) the celebrity male most women want to share a bath with is Prince Harry!!
75% of people take a bath to relax which makes sense with top bath fragrance being Lavender
And the favourite song people like to listen to in the bath.... "Someone like you" by Adele (followed by Yellow Submarine!)
So tell me, do you prefer a bath or a shower?

Today I'm excited to be off to meet little Evelyn, Rose's new arrival!
I will be taking along one of these dolls which I have given to all the little girls my friends have brought into the world!
The perfect way to spend a Sunday!

Every year my mum and I have always sat in front of the TV tuned to QVC for their special show during breast cancer awareness month, phone and QVC membership number in hand to make our purchases
That time has come again 7pm - 10pm TONIGHT
QVC will be broadcasting a special 3-hour live show called ‘be aware, show you care’ this evening We’ll be playing moving moments from the show and offering you the chance to buy some limited edition pieces from Bare Escentuals, OPI and Leighton Denny to name a few with every penny of the net proceeds going to helping women and men with breast cancer
Don't forget to tune and pick up some treats for yourself whilst donating to a good cause!

Yesterday I joined friends and family for the christening of Kelly's daughter, Sophie's christening, here I am with the little cutie
Sophie was very well behaved and the service was enjoyable due to a very entertaining vicar!
Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the the fabulous cake Kelly produced for the day but hopefully she might blog one soon!

My aunt asked me to babysit my cousin Saturday evening so I decided to take him to visit my brother and his family for a sleepover
Despite the sunshine we decided to keep all the children occupied with bowling
Brody carried off the bowling shoes very well!
Violet wanted to get involved too
Brody and my cousin William have a lovely relationship and poor Brody cried his eyes out when we left the next morning as they'd had such fun together!
