Happy Halloween!!! This is always the most bittersweet time of the year para moi because I am literally SO freakin’ excited that it is Halloween, yet it also means that I have to wait a whole 365 days ’til the next Halloween! Le sigh. Anywho – I am going to try my very best to be super “present” & bask in all of the guts, ghasts & gore whilst it’s still both socially & morally acceptable to do so!! NOW if you follow me on social, you’ll know that I just hosted my third annual Hallo-weekend up in Haliburton! This year’s theme? Happily N’ever After; Fairytales Gone Wrong! Friends – it was fan-freakin-tastic! Like I think that this might just be my very favourite of Hallo-weekends thus far, & I am sharing all of the details on ze blog today. So…. ENJOY!!!  (more…)

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been logging an inordinate number of hours to prep for my third annual Halloweekend Party up in Haliburton! A seriously unhealthy number of hours might I add. Guys, I literally treat this party with utmost seriousness. Like more serious than Christmas, my Birthday, Valentines’ Day, Easter & Thanksgiving combined. It is the REAL friggin’ deal. Now without a doubt, one of my very favourite things to research for my party has GOT to be the Halloween Cocktails – or “spirits” if you will! HOWEVER, I’ve always been wildly intimidated to actually try them out for myself! But THIS year, I’ve decided to throw my big boy pants on, & take on FOUR Halloween cocktails for my party – & I could NOT be more excited: they are so so SO on theme! So to help you guys also get into the spirit of things, I thought I’d share a few SPOOK-tacular Cocktail & Halloween Bar inspirations with all of YOU today!  (more…)

GAH – this past weekend, I celebrated my second annual Halloween Dinner Party up North & I could NOT be happier with how it all turned out – like I am one million percent over the moon ecstatic with the end result. This years’ theme was “Creepy Carnival“, & I wanted to share just how easy it can be to throw a totally inexpensive, themed Halloween bash utilizing primarily recyclable materials & [somewhat] healthy treats!! Side Note: talk about bad timing with the grotesque overabundance of creepy clown sightings… whoops… but I promise I planned this theme & décor a YEAR in advance!!!!   (more…)
