The cheapest pair of boots

Okay, guess how much these cost me...

ONLY $1!!! I'm not kidding you.

I was browsing around eBay and I saw these pair of Underground creeper boots being auctioned starting at $1. I put in my bid, and strangely enough no one else bid on top of me. I won them for $1, with $14 postage.

I know that Underground boots generally cost at least $150 AUD, more like $200 due to the weak Australian dollar at the moment. I felt really sorry for the seller, I think he was expecting more money. He should have put a minimum bidding amount. When the boots arrived, I saw that he paid $34 dollars for shipping, so I felt even more sorry for him. Poor bloke.

Hey, at least I got nice shoes.

Halloween Package from Coffin Kitsch!

I was lamenting the fact that Perth has very little Halloween items this year on Instagram, Meagan from Coffin Kitsch noticed, and offered to send me a little package which was very kind of her.
America, and even the UK, are so lucky to have lots of usable Halloween items. We don't get anything nice over here, and a lot is gaudy and ugly.

Wrapped up in a cute ribbon.

This is an awesome coffin card!

Cute reusable shopping bag. I love the print!

Meagan sent me so much stuff!!
There are two tea towels, a tablecloth, bat and spider glitter garlands, and three types of food! I really enjoyed the Brach's brand of candy corn, and it disappeared quickly :) I've had generic brand before, which I didn't enjoy. 
The tea towels are currently hanging on my oven, waiting to dry some dishes.

Thank you so much Meagan! You are so good to me. Go and follow her blog over at Coffin Kitsch.

Halloween Tag!

Hey, long time, not talk. Procrastination is my name, not doing stuff is my game. Anyway, the lovely Meagan, from Coffin Kitsch, tagged me in a Halloween Tag. I need to answer 13 questions (spooky number) and tag 5 other bloggers.

So here we go!

1. Favourite Halloween song?
I Put a Spell on You, by Screamin' Jay Hawkins

2. Witch or Vampire?
Oh man, I like both. I guess, technically, witches have more power than vampires. But vampires have always been my favourite.

3. Favourite thing about Halloween?
Finding items to use all year. Although it's difficult to find items in Perth, I love finding spooky candles, and other decorations to display around my apartment all year.

4. Halloween Party of Scary movie marathon?
Movie marathon, by myself with a pack of chips. I actually don't think I've ever been to a Halloween party, apart from club nights.

5. Skeletons or Zombies?
Another hard question. I love skeletons, but I'll have to choose zombies. I've toned down a bit, but I'm a huge fan of zombie films. I've seem so many of those gory 70's zombie films, I think my mind has been desensitised.

6. Favourite Halloween candy?
Cadbury Screme Eggs! I love the mini ones the best!

7. Favourite Halloween movie?
Halloween, the first ever "horror" film I ever watched. I used to watch it a lot.

8. Favourite Halloween costume?
I loved my spooky ghost costume, from a few years ago.

9. Favourite Halloween store?
Sadly, we don't have any Halloween stores in Perth. This year's shops are terrible, there is really nothing on offer. I guess the closest we have is Lombards, which is a party supply store. The Halloween stuff is usually displayed alongside the Melbourne Cup items :(

10. Jack-o-lanterns, yes or no?
Eeeh, I mean, I don't hate jack-o-lanterns. I guess they're okay?

11. Bats or Black Cats?
Bats! They's so cute.

12. Is Halloween your favourite holiday?
Yes! Even though it's not popular in Australia, I love the chance to find some new spooky things to buy. Although, Christmas comes at a close second, due to the family and yummy food.

13. Pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate! I don't drink coffee, and hot chocolate is probably what I buy if I want a hot drink.

Tags (only three because a lot of people have been tagged already):
Deus Ex Machina
The Walrus Room
Lucretia's Reflection
