Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Scary Ghost Stories

As part of Anna Nuttall Halloween special, I’m going to share with you some of my personal scary ghost stories. So sit back and enjoy.

Now over the years, I have had strange unexplainable experience. Things that I couldn’t explain. And this could be why I love Halloween so much – it gives me a chance to understand my paranormal scary side.

All of these scary ghost stories are real experiences that have happen to me and still to this day send a chill down my spine.

So dim the light, put out the cat and pour yourself a glass of red wine. Here we go:

Experiences number #1

The recurring nightmare. From a young age to about 12-13, I would have these recurring nightmare. And these nightmares will only ever occur at a certain point of the year. Can’t remember what part of the year now.

The nightmare goes where you have to go be facing face down into the pillow and be sleeping, a man will come round and check on everyone and make sure you are facing face down. If he catches you awake or not facing face down, certain death will happen to you.

Nope, not making it up. To this day I have never been able to explain it. Tried telling my parents at the time but thought it was childhood imagination.

As it got older, the nightmare faded away.

Experiences number #2

My parents live in a fairly big house in the middle of nowhere. The village where the house situated is a 25 minutes’ walk away at the top of a big hill. The house itself is fairly modern and new, however, my parents were not the first occupant – just the second.

I have always been convinced my house was haunted. Always and I still think that. One night while sleeping in my bedroom (which was always the coldest room in the house), just lying there. Now I sleep on my side often curled like a ball. So I was laying there and the room was pitch black.

Suddenly the room went cold, sending a shiver down my spine. Out of nowhere, I felt a cold hand reaching on my back underneath my pyjamas. As soon as I notice it the hand stopped and the air went warm again. I sat straight up to see anything. Nothing.

I remember telling my friends at school the next day what has happened. They all thought my parents were playing a prank. But my parents are not the kind of people to do this. Never forgot it.

Experiences number #3

When I was in my teen, my parents brought me a bunk bed. I kept nagging for one so they gave in and let me have one. Trust me I was the happiest ever.

This where it went weird. Lights would start to flicker; the room would go icy cold when I climb into the bed. My stereo at 2-3am in the morning would go full blast. You would be sound asleep and suddenly my stereo would be blaring music at full volume. Often the TV and stereo would turn off. Things would move.

Yeah after 3-4 months of it, I got pretty scared and moved into another room of the house. Where I slept in a proper bed.

Tried telling everyone but they all said it was the wiring problem. I didn’t have before and I didn’t have the issue since. I would at night turn off the stereo at the plug socket – only to have it still blaring with music.

One night I got so scared, (and I’m a little shameless to admit to this) I wet the bed. After that, I never used the bunk bed again.

Experiences number #4

From a young age – to even now, I would hear my name being called in an empty place. Everyone would be out and suddenly I would hear my name being called. There be nobody else home. It started to happen at my parents’ house and has even occurred in my current home where I am now. Sometimes it so clear I genuinely would think someone is behind me. Nope, no one is around. It will be ‘Anna’ in a voice I am familiar with so I would think it’s my parents or my husband or someone I know. Nope.

I went an RC (roman catholic) primary school and I would tell the nuns about hearing these voices. They always said it was a voice from God and he is calling me. Somehow that never made me feel better.

Experiences number #5

Late teen years and I started to dating Richard by this point. My parents went on holiday and left me in charge of the house for the first time. I was mega chuffed. Gave me a set of keys to lock up the place if I need to leave.

I invited Richard over and we decided to walk into the nearest village to get some foods supply. I had the keys on the coffee table and went upstairs to get my jacket. When I went back to get the keys – they weren’t there. Thought Richard was playing a prank but he was occupied on the phone. The keys were on the TV set. This freaked me right out as I know for a fact I didn’t put them there; it was on the coffee table.

Told Richard was happened but shrugged it off and thought I was imagined it. For the rest of the time, while my parents were away, I kept the keys closed to me at all time.

 

That was my scary ghost stories experiences. Now I want you all to share yours. Have you had anything that you cannot explain? A sudden burst of coldness or thing would go missing.

I do love reading other people scary ghost stories experiences so don’t be shy and share.

    I wish I had a scary ghost story to share with you! I don’t think I’ve ever had any ghost encounters myself and have always shied away from ghost tours. But being alone in a big house always creeps me out though..

    About 10 years ago I was very into witchcraft and believe it or not I was a medium for some time and did communicate with the dead. Well, one day I stopped trying to communicate with them altogether due to one bad experience. I was staying with my girlfriend in her parent’s place while we sorted a few things with our own place. Their house was haunted, most mornings the cupboard doors were open, the appliances would be on despite being turned off at the wall. Footsteps would go along the hall upstairs during the early hours when you went to look, no one was there.
    As for the bad experience, well apart from allowing the spirit to control my hand and use the pen to write or draw for me I can often see them when I concentrate enough. One day I and my girlfriend were sitting at the dining table, her parents and sisters were away for a few days and the cupboard doors were open again. I could feel the presence of the spirit and it wasn’t a pleasant one. I asked to communicate but he didn’t want to so I left him for a while then returned. He shouted in my face, told us to leave the house. He was inches from my face, an old man with a gaunt face and thinning hair. The hairs on the back of my neck were up and my ears were ringing. That was the last time I tried talking to the dead.

    Great stories! I don’t really have a good ghost story. I think the weirdest thing that ever happened to me was when I was living in Chicago some years ago. The house I was renting had been built some time in the late 1800’s. That house had some weird phenomena such as lights going on and off at random times and door bell ringing at the same time in the afternoon. When I would open the door, no one would be there–creepy!

  • I LOVED THIS!! I am a fan of scary stories especially this time of year and girl, you spooked me! I literally got chills with #2 where you were talking about that cold hand! I don’t really have too many scary experiences, the one that stands out the most is from a few months ago. I was home alone about to get my kids from school and i heard footsteps upstairs. AND NO ONE WAS HOME. I bolted out of the house. Came back in and sent my dog up there! I still don’t know what it was!

    Love these! Such interesting and creepy happenings. I had a couple instances of really intense ghost-like dreams, once when I was staying in a building that had previously been a nursing home. Others had reported hearing people walk the halls in the night. I had a kind of dream paralysis experience where I saw the figure of a woman standing over me, and was trying to speak/wake myself up/move and I couldn’t. Terrifying! Happy spooky season!
