Today is one of DS's favorite days of the year, trick or treat! Before doing the rounds in the village this evening, we'll have some of DS's friends over for a make-up session and Halloween tea party. Creepy muffins, ghoulish sweets and spooky cookies are the order of the day.
Boo!!! Having slightly 'aged' from yesterday's look ;-) Good thing is, it's much easier to breathe! Sarves and accessories as yesterday.
