My Journey

The Witch is in! | Happy Halloween from The World of Suzy Homemaker

The Witch is in and Halloween is FINALLY here! Whoop!!

I spent most of (ok... ALL!) of yesterday transforming OneandSeventy for Halloween. Samhain is my New Year. For me, it's the biggest night in the calendar - WAY bigger than Christmas, so I MAY have gone a little nuts.

Me? Go overboard? NEVER!

I'm really looking forward to welcoming the neighbourhood Trick or Treaters later and maybe even a few passing spirits.

Halloween Shopping Haul | @SuzyHomemakerUK

When I left you last week, I was rambling on about managing the onset of SAD syndrome by making a start on this year's Halloween crafts. It wasn't my intention to get all deep and meaningful, but I guess if I'm going to write a blog about life on my planet, there's a very good chance the good will be joined by a little of the bad and the ugly!

Getting back to the fun stuff, I had a brilliant weekend. Crafting aside, women the world over will attest to that other magical cure for depression... retail therapy. Put 'em together and what have you got?

One HELL of a Halloween shopping haul!

I don't normally post round-ups, but I am SO excited about my shopping trip, I just had to share my spoils with you. That way, if you feel the urge to splurge, you'll have a head start on where to go for all things Halloween.

Halloween Apothecary | @SuzyHomemakerUK

Hello my lovelies. How's your week been? Me, I've been having a brilliant time! I've spent the last few days knee-deep in potions, powders bats and spiders.

The World of Suzy Homemaker is preparing for Halloween!

Yes, yes... I know it's only August. If truth be told, it's a little early for all things spooky even for me, but you know what? Day after day of wall-to-wall grey skies was killing me.

Remember how last week, I lamented the non-existence of summer so much that I decided to sell my Bon Jovi collection? Well, little improvement on the weather front and autumn looming far too close on the horizon, had me in need of a serious shot of excitement to stop me spiralling into a deep, dark hole.

Sue and Richie Sambora, backstage at Count Basie, New Jersey, 1994 | The World of Suzy Homemaker

Hello my lovelies. Are you enjoying the summer? What there's been of it, I mean.

Usually, come August, I like to take it easy. As in, total wind down. For a whole month, I normally relocate my office to the garden and do only what's necessary for my clients and very little else... all from the comfort of my sun lounger.


Well, yes... ordinarily. Only this year, the weather's been so abysmal, my lounger's practically gathering dust. I've had no choice but to find other ways to occupy my time.

How do you want to feel?

Get clear on how you actually want to feel - Danielle LaPorte

If you're one of the lucky ones I recently bored senseless with the incessant flood of sun-filled photos on my Instagram feed (you're welcome), you'll know that Beloved and I have just returned from the Greek island of Rhodes.

Ahhhh.... Sun, Sea, Sand and Gin. Bliss.

Like most aspirin-skinned Brits, my top three reasons for a holiday are to relax, escape the dismal UK weather and enjoy some sun on my bones. But not only was this a wonderfully relaxing break, where we celebrated both my Birthday and our Wedding Anniversary, our holiday also turned out to be something of a revelation.
