October mixtape // via Spotify
So it’s not quite the end of the month yet, but I thought I would upload October’s mixtape as it’s got a few Halloween themed songs on it, so might help to get you in the mood for my favourite day of the year – or if you’re compiling a Halloween party playlist, it might give you a bit of inspiration. Hope you enjoy! P.S. track nine is a definite contender for my favourite song ever ever.
By the time October rolls around, autumn has slowly crept up on you and, all of a sudden, leaves are falling at your feet and the sun has set by six o’clock. Hands never leave coat pockets, and everything seems golden. There’s a sudden longing for freshly baked bread and toffee apples and blood red lipstick. The witching hour seems more bewitching than ever before, just the moon and you. Everyone seems a little superstitious. You watch too many films late at night, and worry about nothing and everything all at once.
