If your mum prefers something a little more personalised then check out Not On The High Street.com. They have many gifts that can be personalised, including a hand painted vintage style sign. You can choose a phrase to appear; the default is “I have the best mother ever”, but you can enter whatever you think your mum will like – from £16 with 10% cashback.

It’s that time of year again so ‘get your ghoul on’, and strut your spooky stuff this Halloween October 31st Mwhahahhahahah!

Order your fancy dress online for a better deal and cashback, and buy it early before all the fake blood and fangs are sold out! Horror films are great inspiration if you are running low on fancy dress ideas so here are a few iconic horror characters that will give the other guests nightmares!

theexorcist1reganblog

Regan from The Exorcist is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable, and terrifying female horror characters. Spooky stories of a curse on all those who acted in the film, and the unusual number of deaths during its making gives The Exorcist that added fear factor! For your Regan outfit you will need purple, green, and corpse coloured cake makeup to create a pale and sick complection that you can apply the scar/wound transfers to. To get the same hair affect backcomb/mess up your hair, and using the fake blood take a few strands and coat them in it to get that lank unkempt look. To disguise your ‘pearly whites’ use black tooth enamel and rub it round your teeth and gums, instant tooth decay! Finally to complete the look you will need a pale blue nightdress which you can spatter with more fake blood. You can get the perfect nightdresses from M&S or eBay is always worth a look.

I am a huge fan of vintage horror, and Carrie is one of my favourite films. Carrie is the school outcast bullied and picked on but she has telekenetic powers and a religous fanatic for a mother, it’s a recipe for disaster! A Carrie outfit is very quick and easy to do, M&S and Debenhams sell plain silk slips you can pick up for under £10, and New Look have a whole range of flowers on hairbands/clips for a few quid that you can use as your corsage. If you don’t have long blonde/mousey hair then invest in a long blonde wig. Once you are all dressed and ready to go ask a passing zombie to liberally drench you in fake blood, voila!

anawwil
werewolf

An American Werewolf In London is perhaps the perfect horror movie, it has humour, suspence, great special affects (for the time), and a little bit of saucy action too! You may think a werewolf is beyond your fancy dress skills, but I’m about to prove you wrong! Firstly to get that ‘mad dog look’ backcomb and hairspray your hair into a wild mop, then apply the werewolf hair mask to your face. Use brown face paint to fill in the parts of your face and neck that are showing through to complete stage 1. Next you will need to find an old top and trousers that you don’t mind cutting up, take the scissors to them making the sleeve and ankle ends ragged like they have been torn, and as with all halloween outfits liberally splatter them with fake blood. Finally before you leave pop in your werewolf fangs, and put on a pair of hairy hand werewolf gloves. Hoooooooooooooowwwwwl!

Best of all you can get up to 11% cashback on fancy dress

Get fit, get running!

Running has to be one of the cheapest and most effective ways to get fit. Don’t bother with splashing out on fancy gym membership you are never going to use, instead buy yourself the basics for running then you have access to easy, free, effective exercise whenever you want!

blogrun

Getting kitted out to run…

Trainers – Invest in a good pair of trainers specific to the type of running you do (road or rough terrain) and they will support and help you get the most out of your run. Being a big fan of customisation my fave sports store is Nike because of their Nike ID function where you can customise Nike products to your heart’s content! These Nike Air Swift just £30.79 with 7% cashback

Leg wear – There’s nothing worse than starting a run, just to realise 5 mins in that the elastic in your tracksuit bottoms is naff, so to stop them falling down you have to tie them up and do the rest of your run looking like ‘Compo’ from Last Of The Summer Wine! These Ronhill Ladies Tights are ideal, stirrup feet stop them riding up, and 4 way stretch means they are super comfy to run in. £13.50 from Wiggle with up to 5% cashback

Base Layer – To help keep you cool as you run, or retain the heat during the colder months base layers are ideal. They can be pretty pricey so I had a quick look on eBay and found loads. This Helly Hansen base layer was just £20 and you get up to 30% cashback from eBay

Accessories – If you can’t find anyone to be your running buddy then an iPod is the next best thing to keep you interested and motivated while you run, but don’t pick anything too up beat for your play list or you’ll burn yourself out running extra fast! This electric blue 2GB iPod shuffle holds 500 songs and is just £45 with 2.5% cashback

So now you are ready to hit the road, on your marks, get set….GO!

Staying in is the new going out!

As the credit crunch continues to keep us tightening our purse strings ‘staying in’ is fast becoming the new ‘going out’ so with that in mind here are some of the latest DVD releases you could be settling down to watch tonight…

blogmovies

The Boat That Rocked – £11.99 free delivery and up to 6% cashback from Play.com

With a who’s who cast of comedy actors (Bill Nighy, Nick Frost, and Emma Thompson to name a few) this looks set to be a rib tickler, but will it deliver? ‘Radio Rock’ is a pirate station broadcast from a boat in the middle of the North Sea, and manned by an eclectic bunch of DJs, museos, and groupies. The fate of the station is in jeopardy, but its die hard fans come to the rescue. Directed by BAFTA, Emmy, and Oscar nominated English screenwriter Richard Curtis this should be another witty, entertaining, romp, but word on the street is that it’s not a patch on ‘Love Actually’ Hhmmmmm….see what you think….

The Damned Untied – £12.95 free delivery and 3% cashback from Zavvi

Despite not having a great interest in football myself I am definitely going to watch this film for Michael Sheen alone. He is a seamless actor and I’m pretty sure his portrayal of legendary football manager Brian Clough will be another slick performance. The film covers Clough’s most infamous period as a football manager during his time at Leeds UTD where his abrasive coaching style didn’t win him many friends. Sheen’s leading roll is backed up with a quality cast including Timothy Spall, and Jim Broadbent so if you are in the mood for drama I would add this to your shopping basket.

I Love You, Man – £12.99 free delivery and 4% cashback at HMV

At last Paul Rudd lands a leading roll after endlessly guffawing at him in ‘Anchor Man’, and ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin’ I’m glad to see him finally hogging the lime light. ‘I Love You, Man’ is the story of a burgeoning ‘bromance’ between ‘Peter’ and ‘Sydney’ with all the associated social awkwardness and insecurities of two straight men forming a close friendship. It’s a step away from the rom-com norm of ‘boy meets girl’ and as a result should make for a quirky movie. If you are looking for lighthearted, and amusing then I think this could be the film for you…
