NEW VIDEO: Halloween – Party hacks and snacks

Well hello there,

I’ve been fiddling around with the idea of a video segment to this here blog for a while now. Having produced a very silly introduction video a few weeks ago which, quite frankly, I was not too impressed with – I found myself shoving that dream onto the back-burner in a hurry and instead staring at my computer screen for a few weeks hoping that inspiration would give me a smack across the face. (Hoorah. So productive.)

Lo and behold. I have decided not to over-think it (a God-awful habit of mine),Β  just freaking post something, and see what happens.

My skillzzz (yes, with a “z”) are completely lacking (production-wise) but since I love themed parties (and Halloween, in particular) I thought I’d start just off with a simple idea – and hopefully I will receive only constructive crit. (Who am I kidding? – Trolls! On your mark…)

I would be eternally grateful if you could “like” my video if you think I should do more stuff like this and/or subscribe to my channel if you’d like to be notified every time I post something. πŸ™‚

Drop me a comment and let a gal know what you think.



Β PS: Kind of a fitting post for a channel launch – seeing as it is my 100th post! πŸ˜€


You say goodbye, I say HALLOW.

Hallow there. Searching for a Halloween costume for this year?

Since my annual Halloween posts are, by far, my most popular, I thought I would make damn sure that I don’t leave y’all hanging this year. (Since my blog has been a little quiet of late…)

Here is a little round-up of some cool ideas I’ve found on the interwebs – for the devout fancy-dressers out there:

Hallo, Halloween!

Since last year’s Halloween costume suggestions were found to be quite popular among readers, I thought I’d gather some new ideas for 2013. There is absolutely nothing better than a clever or funny costume – so hopefully some of these ideas inspire you to take the lesser traveled road (ie: The road faaaaar away from Slutty Street) when it comes to picking out your costume.

Because we all know we’re going to see a few of these this year:

Miley fancy dress.Urgh.

Let’s stick to the better, less vomit-inducing ideas, shall we?

Let us proceed:

Big bang fancy dress.Amy Farrah Fowler and Sheldon Cooper from the Big bang theory.

SHAMY! Super-funny and easy to execute!

Daria katy perry fancy dress.Daria and Jane Lane, portrayed by Katy Perry and Shannon Woodward.

Awesome throwback to the 90s MTV show.

Super clever tip-of-the-hat to a superior browser. πŸ˜‰

Hey! Do you wanna come to my Halloween Par…. No.

Magritte fancy dress.The Son of Man by Magritte.

Art fanatics can pull this off in no time at all. Apple print-out + suit = Done!

Tulio Miguel fancy dress.Miguel and Tulio from The Road to El Dorado.

Because that cartoon was helluva funny, and if you didn’t think so, you probably had no pulse.

Up house fancy dressThe Up house!

Um, Pixar anything?! YAY!

Lazy fancy dress.Error 404.

Feeling lazy this year? Still keep it clever!



Halloween fancy pants

Hi bloggosphere.

Since Halloween lies just yonder, I thought I’d present a few last minute fancy dressΒ  ideas for any girls, like myself, who are sick of guys always having kick-ass costume options.

My office is supposed to be dressing up tomorrow, but we’ve all been so busy, that I dug into my fancy dress box and grabbed a few items that could possibly pass as Halloween costumes for everyone. (I’ll keep you updated on that…)

Here are a few pictures I found, of awesome lady Halloween attire:

She-Joker! Super awesome costume. Love the huge green hair. Simple and a really obvious portrayal.

Sally! Only the best Burton character for Halloween. Patch-quilt dress, red hair and face-paint. Totally do-able!

A doll! Amazing what a little make-up can do… Throw on a pretty dress and a bow in your hair, and you’re good to go!

A zombie Disney princess! Cosplay with a little gore. If you’re a Disney freak, like myself, why not zombify your favourite princess?

A Mexican Calavera aka sugar skull! What a beautiful idea for Halloween. Love the make-up, and especially the big grey-ish flowers in her hair! Definitely going to try this someday!

Anyhow, link me to any fun costumes you guys find, or decide to wear. Happy Halloween!

Mucho Bisous!
