    31 Nights of Horror – Halloween

    Ah yes, the coupe de grace, the final reckoning, the piece de resistance – John Carpenter’s 1978/81 slasher flicks, Halloween Parts I and II. 6-year-old Michael Myers murders his sister and is committed to a psychiatric hospital. Fifteen years late on Halloween Eve, Michael escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, Illinois to give the locals a Samhain that they will never forget. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) drops a key off at the Michael’s childhood home provoking his stalking her for the remainder of the day. She sees him while walking home with her two friends, Annie and Lynda but they convince her that is’t nothing to worry about. Meanwhile, Dr.…

    Halloween Potluck Recipe

    I did not prep a post last night as I was stuffing treat bags, making candied apples and testing out a new crock pot recipe for today’s potluck. Risky, I know – a new recipe for a potluck? Don’t worry, I didn’t put my name on it – it’s from the entire department 😛 In all honesty, even the BF enjoyed it last night and he is hard to please. This is not my recipe, it is a Pinterest find but I did make a few tweaks:   The changes that I made are increasing the liquids with the addition of the half & half, I think that having all of the…

    Best of October

    I don’t usually go all out for Christmas décor but for some reason I just want my apartment to look like holiday vomit this year. I want trees in the bathrooms, tinsel, that spray can snow on the windows. Do they still make that? I am going all out this year, I’m going tacky, cookie cutter kitsch 😛 The BF just vetoed the trees in the bathrooms, honestly. I only have a handful of favourites this month, I have been using so many of the same products that I talk about all of the time so I will spare you. First, we have the Fit Me foundation and powder, this…

    31 Nights of Horror – The Hitcher

    This movie is relentless and kinda’ hard to watch as it just goes on and on with no end in sight. Jim Halsey is on a cross-country trek to San Diego when he picks up a hitchhiker in a torrential downpour. The hitcher, John Ryder, isn’t the friendliest guy and starts to say odd things and claims that he killed the driver of an abandoned car that they pass. Jim starts to worry that he has made a mistake and takes the opportunity to shove John out of the car. It seems as though Jim has dodged a bullet but he is soon overtaken by a car with a family…

    Some October Empties!

    Hands up if you binge-watched Stranger Things this weekend! Unpopular opinion, I am not a fan of El – I think that story line could have been written out, not sorry about it 😀 All of the rest of the kids are awesome, those haircuts – that’s art and the soundtrack is really fantastic. I don’t have a ton of empties, I feel like I say that every month but let’s get to it anyway! Milani Make it Last Setting Spray – This is a great fixing spray, it is affordable, smells good and does prolong the wear of my makeup. That being said, it feels like hair spray on my…

    31 Nights of Horror – Gerald’s Game

    When I saw that Netflix was dramatizing one of my favourite, if lesser know, Stephen King thrillers – I knew that I had to see it. Jessie and Gerald are headed to a secluded cabin in the woods to rekindle their love life. Gerald is an obnoxious, successful lawyer and Jessie is a mild-mannered housewife. The couple encounter a stray dog on their arrival at the cabin, Jessie feeds him a couple of steaks and then they retire to the cabin. King, again, expertly utilizes the seclusion of the setting to build suspense and foreboding before anything really happens. While Jessie and Gerald are getting romantic in the bedroom, Gerald…

    Sample Saturday – Kat Von D Beauty

    This is a brand that one would assume that I would be into, the artistry, the stunning hues, Kat Von D being a complete goddess – but I am not that into this brand. I have tried quite a few items and just never felt the need to make any of them permanent additions to my routine. Today I have two of her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick minis, this product claims to apply like a gloss and dry down to a matte finish, provides 24 hour wear, comes in 44 shades and retails at $20 each. The entire line is cruelty-free and I believe vegan but don’t quote me on that,…

    Friday Funday – Halloween Home Decor

    Totally random (and late) post coming at you today – I had the day off and it is snowing!! Talk about perfect timing, now everyone can get their snow driving legs on without me dealing with them in rush hour. I have been out since about 7, tying up loose ends for Halloween, got my hair done – I ruined the style though cramming it into my snow hat, so now I look like Rumpelstiltskin from Shrek, it’s a look. I shared with you guys my work decorations and thought I’d give you a peek of my home décor. Honestly, not that much this year – I really went HAM…

    31 Nights of Horror – Grimm

    This series is probably my ultimate guilty pleasure, I admit that it is ultra-cheesy but I still love it. Detective Nick Burkhart finds out that he is descended from a long line of grimms and that all those fairy tales were real. His ancestors fought to eradicate wesen ie, the big bad wolf, the three bears, dragons, ogres. He teams up with Monroe, who is also a blutbad (big bad wolf) to keep the wesen of Portland at bay and is able to solve cases that would otherwise go unsolved because he can see the creatures for what they really are. I enjoy the modern day, retelling of some old…

    Fall Fashion Haul: Part I

    I am doing a Christmas list for a local shelter, they list out a bunch of stuff that they would like to give to kids at the shelter and I collect the items and deliver them. Blah, blah, blah. One of the items listed was Shopkins which, not having little kids in my life regularly, I had no idea what that was. I did some research and they are these little, figurine things that I still don’t totally get anyway, while I was doing my research I read many a review. In one review, the package was supposed to contain 30 pieces but there were only 27 and the purchaser’s daughter was not…
