31 Things for Halloween!

By Friday, October 31, 2014 0 Permalink

It’s here! Halloween is here!  We kick off my annual 31 Things for Halloween with the Halloween Playlist on Spotify that we’ve been putting together each day over the last month. So I encourage all you readers out there to hit ‘play’ on track uno and get your Halloween groove on!

It’s been a surprisingly long month writing about Halloween every day and basically putting it on a freaking pedestal. I LOVE Halloween. I love love love it. But mentally I went overboard and I wish I had done more Halloween things. Too much time thinking, not enough doing. I don’t know what exactly, maybe I should have gotten lost in a corn maze or something. I want to savor this moment for as long as possible before Christmas themed everything takes over the world and douses us in garland and peppermint everyday for almost 2 months. I’m debating whether it’s better to put up my holiday gift guides before Black Friday or after so people don’t get worn out by holiday cheer before Thanksgiving. But anyway it’s Halloween! Finally. Today we get to act as weird or wacky and dress up any way we like. So hit play on track number 1 and lets cruises through 2014’s 31 Things for Halloween!

For more Halloween inspiration check out 2012 31 Things of Halloween and 2013 31 Things for Halloween. I hope you have an exciting Halloween and please stay safe.

4. ModCloth I Can Digit! Tee – This tee is hilarious and would be a perfect lounging around the house tee. It kinda reminds me of what I do when it’s that time of month and everything hurts. Just hold me skeleton man.

5. ASOS Full Midi Tulle Skirt – Why don’t people wear more tulle skirts? They’re so much fun and would make a very cute and ballsy date night skirt choice. While I would go for black it also comes in teal and red.

Five not so scary Halloweenish movies – My first 31 Days of Halloween had a list similar to this where I listed the usual suspects: Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, etc. So I had to think of five more family friendly movies that are more fun than scary. Actually none of these are really “scary” they’re just odd.

21. Ghostbusters (1984)

Five seriously scary movies – aka movies I’d be ok with never seeing again because they scare the crap out of me. For some of you these might seem wussy but man oh man I do not like scary movies. I can appreciate the horror genre and find it fascinating but I don’t enjoy hiding under my covers at night after watching a horror flick.

26. Jeepers Creepers (2001)
