Tag post: Halloween questions

Hello everyone!

October is finally here - Kids are back in school and the weather is starting to get a little chilly.  But most importantly, Halloween is almost here!  So today I'm going to answer some Halloween related questions.

1. What’s your favourite horror movie?
 Horror/Thriller is my favourite genre.  Here are some of my favourite:
Stir of Echoes (1999), The Others (2001), "Frágiles" (Fragile) (2005), "El Orfanato" (The Orphanage) (2007).  I actually love Spanish horror movies, French comedy and Italian drama. 

2. If you were in a horror movie, how far do you think you would get? (Five minutes, halfway, all the way to the end credits…?)
All the way to the end credits, duh! 

3. Favourite scary video game?
I'm not much of a gamer.

4. Favourite scary story?
The ghost stories my nanna (grandma) used to tell me and my brother when we were little.

5. What’s one unusual thing that you’re afraid of?
Nothing at present but when I was little I used to be afraid of clowns after watching It (1990).  That movie scared a whole generation!

6. What’s your first memory of Halloween?
In Malta Halloween has only been gaining popularity in recent years.  Growing up, Halloween was not part of my calendar, however I always loved scary stories and I wanted to be a little witch (while most girls wanted to be princesses).

7. What’s your favourite Halloween memory?
The first pumpkin I carved into a jack o'lantern!

8. Best Halloween costume you’ve had?
I wore plenty of Carnival costumes as a child but I never wore a Halloween costume in my life.  My favourite costume was a seasons/rainbow costume.  My mum used to make all of our costumes and my brother and I used to have the best costumes in our school!    

9. Worst Halloween costume you’ve had?
The worse costume I had was a Pocahontas costume for the Maltese Carnival.  It was too plain for my taste.  And of course, how can I forget the clown costume my mum made me wear when I was 10.  I didn't want to dress up that year because I felt I was "too old" for that.  It was the last Carnival costume I ever wore.    

Which is scarier: (If they were all real)

10. Werewolves or vampires?
Vampires - Unlike werewolves they are undead and immortal.

11. Ghosts or zombies?
Zombies !

12. Creepy dolls or creepy clowns?
Creepy clowns.

13) Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers or Leatherface?
Leatherface  -  He is an inbred, cannibal murderer who wears masks made of human skin!  That definitely makes him the scariest in my book.

Hope you enjoyed this tag post.  I tag all of you!  Leave a comment with your answers.

Acne update | DIY: Honey and Aloe vera mask

Hello everyone!

Recently my acne has been flaring up again, which is very strange considering that I've been on a 100% dairy-free diet for a few months.  
Can food allergies cause acne? ]  I haven't consumed dairy products in years, other than milk chocolate and mozzarella on my pizza, which I now removed from my diet.  

If you want to know more about dairy-free diet, check out  Go Dairy Free and  Got the facts on Milk? (The Milk Documentary)

Anyway, to heal my acne as fast as possible, my go-to DIY is a honey and Aloe vera mask.  This is a really simple face mask recipe; check it out!     


  • 1 teaspoon organic raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure, cold-pressed organic Aloe vera gel

  1. Stir the honey and Aloe vera together and apply over your face.  
  2. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Rinse off.  

In my experience, the Aloe vera gel prevents the honey from melting and dripping all over your clothes.  Aloe soothes inflammation and calms your skin, perfect for those with sensitive, irritated skin.

I love honey and Aloe but when I don't have the time to apply a mask and relax, I reach for my DIY blemish killer that I always keep in my fridge.  What is your go-to emergency acne treatment?  Let me know in the comment section below.

Dresses of Girl | Bridesmaid Dresses

Hello everyone!

Choosing bridesmaid dresses is a crucial yet stressful part of every wedding.  What looks great on one of your bridesmaid might not work for the other ladies.  Instead of stressing out about finding one dress and shade that will fit everyone, why not let them all look a little different?  

Bridesmaid style has come a long way in the last few years.  Gone are the days of everyone wearing the same dress.  More and more brides are letting their bridesmaids choose their own dresses because they want their maids to feel good about what they're wearing.  And it's a fact of life that not everyone has an identical body type.  Today, brides are mixing it up by having bridesmaids wear dresses with different styles, fabrics, and colours that make it way more interesting and fun.  This trend highlights each individual woman's style and ensure she is wearing a dress that makes her feel great.  Furthermore, mismatched bridesmaids dresses bring your wedding attire into the 21st century.  

Just because you're a bridesmaid, it doesn't mean that you have to look plain.  DressesofGirl has a large collection of simple but elegant bridesmaid dresses, which will help you channel your inner fashionista with an attention grabbing ensemble.  From mini and simple, to long and glamorous; you are sure to find a special bridesmaid dress among the rainbow of colours and stunning styles at DressesofGirl.

Take a look at some of my favourite bridesmaid styles:

Dresses 1, 2 and 3.

Dresses 4, 5 and 6.
