Trick or Treating with Marks & Spencer


Halloween is just around the corner! That means it’s time for our family’s annual trick-or-treating…My son, Kingston absolutely loves it but who doesn’t if there’s lots of candy involved, am I right?!




Over the weekend we headed to a nearby park for some ghoulishly good times! We love to celebrate the changing seasons, and fall is definitely one of our favorites, and Halloween is part of our annual festivities where our son can go crazy over candy! We always try and look for some fun activities to do with our 5 year old son—we’re all about family time and creating fond memories together! And fall is truly the season for some family fun, a peaceful stroll, or an afternoon trick or treating!


Kingston is wearing a knight costume from Marks and Spencer which he completely loves! He’s into knights lately so, this costume couldn’t have been a better fit!

We had so much fun trick or treating, and we’re counting down the days to Halloween which will also be my husband’s birthday! What are your plans for Halloween, and are you planning on getting dressed up too? Let me know by commenting below!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous day!

    This costume is absolutely adorable on Kingston! My two older sons only want to be scary characters for Halloween. Would love for them to wear a costume like this. He is such a cutie.

    Ooohhh, this is so sweet! Dear V., you and Kingston look so sweet together, he is adorable! I loved his costume, a knight! Really lovely! And to be together as a family, for a stroll, or a Halloween party, or your husband’s birthday (how cool is that, on Halloween!), that’s so nice and priceless! I hope you all have a lot of fun, always, and now especially on Halloween! Big hug, dear V.! Kisses!

    Vanessa, this is so adorable. I so appreciate whimsical and imaginative kid’s costumes for Halloween opposed to a plastic mask, lol. Kingston looks so cute. Happy Halloween & Happy Birthday to your husband!

    Kingston is so adorable- he and his little brother will be the cutest pair ever! I love this post- Marks and Spencers is an amazing store. My sister lived in the UK and she brought me back a lot of stuff from M&S, and they’ve been a favorite ever since!

    Your little boy is your knight V and he ain’t little anymore, he will definitely protect you…that’s what I get from his costume. I have no idea what am wearing for Halloween because it is not a big deal in my country except in a few high end clubs. And you are one hot mama, always have been!

  28. October 20, 2016 / 5:37 PM

    Ah! So adorable. What a cute idea for a costume. I hope my kids would want to be something like that instead of a super hero or princess, haha! Lovely blog too. Happy to have found you. Hope you can check mine out! Xx

  29. October 20, 2016 / 8:23 PM

    He is so cute! I haven’t done any Halloween parties for the a long time. This completely takes me back to childhood. ๐Ÿ™‚ Those moments are really precious. Kids will remember them forever.
