Happy Halloween From Me and HMV *

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays so when HMV contacted me and wanted to send me some Halloween treats I couldn't turn it down! I'm a massive film fan so I have been watching a lot of horror films up until the 31st (today!) so I was so excited to receive two more in the post along with lots of other goodies!

As soon as I opened the box I squealed! What is Halloween without the best Halloween movie of all time? Hocus Pocus! A complete throwback which I couldn't be more happy about! Along with Hocus Pocus came The Exorcist, a classic horror film about a girl possessed by the devil, perfect for watching on Halloween night.

HMV also included some sweet treats - a whole bag of Haribos, a selection of sweets and popcorn! What more could anyone want for the perfect Halloween movie night? Let's not forget the frozen Margarita which I'll be having for Halloween pre-drinks!

In the box also came some costume and makeup bits and pieces - a tube of fake blood, some vampire fangs and Halloween coloured makeup sticks! I have a feeling that HMV is very enthusiastic about vampire costumes this year. The tube of fake blood is perfect for using in a Halloween makeup look. By using cotton buds you can apply a spot of blood to the face (maybe underneath the eye?) and let it drip down to create a scary bleeding effect! Applying it to the corner of the lips also indicates vampirism and creates that classic Halloween look, just add the vampire fangs they also provided and you're all set! I also discovered that using the white makeup stick under the eye has a ghoulish ghost-like effect which I can't wait to try and wear tonight!

Lastly, what is Halloween without decorations? HMV kindly included some Halloween inspired candles along with a Day of the Dead themed bunting. Who wouldn't love a golden skull shaped candle?

As today is Halloween, I plan to spend it watching Hocus Pocus, The Exorcist and loads of other scary movies while munching away on the treats HMV sent me! This evening, I'll be drinking my frozen Margarita as I apply fake blood to my face and get ready to head out for the evening!

Fancy having a movie night in too? Check out the wide selection of DVDs that HMV has to offer here! They have all the latest releases as well as old, difficult to get a hold of, films too!

What are your plans for Halloween?
