Happy halloween everyone!
I hope you all have a lovely (and safe!) day/evening full of delicious treats and halloween spirited hoots and hollers.

Here’s some links to ensure you have a fun and safe Halloween:

  • A video on halloween safety with mom blogger McKinzie Roth on Indy TV
  • Loving these vintage halloween costume sketches at Celtic Lady
  • A Halloween story told through this cutely illustrated video on History.com
  • Disney’s list of Halloween movies. (Hocus Pocus has my vote)
  • The top 50 scariest movies according to Boston.com

Spooky Treats Halloween Roundup

Just one more day until the spookiest day of the year! Your decorations are up and you’ve got your bowl of candy (partially eaten of course) waiting by the door. What about other halloween snacks for you and your family and friends to enjoy as you greet trick or treaters or watch a scary movie tomorrow?
Here’s a roundup of some yummy and halloween worthy treats:

Use a witch stencil to decorate you cake like this one from Snackthyme.

I grew up separating pumpkin guts from seeds every halloween. I can’t lie, as a kid I found it annoying. But the result? Delicious roasted pumpkin seeds like these ones from The Endless Meal.

Family Fun shows you how to turn your usual cookie cutter cookies halloween-y by piping on skeletons.

For the adults of the group, why not serve up this Caramel Nut Pumpkintini from Cookistry.

Having a halloween dinner party? Serve up this Pumpkin Chipolte Cream Pasta from Boulder Locavore.

We’re having a low key Halloween night handing out candy and having friends over for a pot luck and a halloween movie (my favourite, Hocus Pocus).

What are your Halloween plans?

Pencil Skirt Round up

This year was the summer of the maxi. That abundance of flowing fabric was perfect for hot summer days and nights. But for the autumn I’m thinking something a little more snug is in order. What am I digging for this cozy season? The pencil skirt. Here’s a look at three pencil skirt must haves..


For Work: Tall No. 2 Pencil Skirt from J.Crew – $98.00 / For the Weekend: Ginger Grant Belted Pencil Skirt from Ruche – $39.99 / For Parties: Jade My Day Skirt from ModCloth – $47.99

Do you enjoy a snug pencil skirt or do you prefer the flowing maxi?

October Instagram Picks

October is always such a cozy and beautiful month. The leaves start to turn, the air gets crisper, and those delicious autumn flavours start coming about.
Here’s my month of October via Instagram:


My favourite memory from these instagram pics was my student giving me the mini white pumpkin she grew herself.
What is your favourite memory of the month so far?
