When Halloween comes around the OML team go full force with the fake blood and ghostly make-up! We turned OML HQ into our very own haunted house party covering the place with cobwebs, pumpkins and skulls. Thanks to the lovely people atThe Vaultswe all headed to the scariest party in London town, The Halloween Raveyard, which is held in the haunted vaults beneath Waterloo station - spooky! Team OML definitely had the freakiest Halloween ever! Partying into the night in the pitch-black, smokey rooms and finally ending the night in The Dank Parish. The team pulled up a pew as a few of us stepped up to the alter to confess our sins before holding a funeral for our Visual Creative, Lou. You know you’ve had a great Halloween when you end the night in a coffin!

Frozen Red Apples
4 Red Apples (Sliced)

To cure your cravings after all those yummy drinks, we've a great recipe for caramel apples; it's a must!
Ingredients (makes 6 apples):
2 tablespoons of Milk
1 (14 oz) package of individually wrapped Caramels, unwrapped
You will also need 6 wooden craft sticks
Instructions: Remove the stem from each apple and place the craft stick into the top. Also butter a baking tray. Place the caramels and milk into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Once it's finished, stir once and set aside to cool briefly. Roll each apple in the caramel until it's well-coated and place on the baking tray to set. For better results, place apples in the fridge to set for approximately 25 mins. For that little bit extra add some chocolate, nuts or sprinkles and enjoy!
