Valentine’s Day 2017

Valentine’s Day is a little less than one month away and stores are filling up with cheap pink and red flavored garbage. I’d like to believe the whole point of this holiday is to show someone that you care about them but I have met some people that believe the quality of the gift equals the quality of the…

Japanese Food

I like to wander off the spooky beaten path every once in a while, so here’s a trip into the other love of my life: Japanese food! Every winter I start craving Japanese food.  Karaage, Ramen, Japanese curry, and Pocky become staples in my diet. United Noodles is my favorite Asian market in Minnesota.  They have a…

Halloween Haul 2016

By mid-July a small few stores in the United States have started to put out their Halloween stock.  It’s usually home decor and fabric stores like Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Tuesday Morning, and At Home that are first to get into the Halloween spirit.  Larger ‘big box’ stores like Target, Walmart, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshall’s follow suit in mid-September after Back to School clearances…

Halloween Party 2016

My party planning has become more elaborate during the years that I’ve been developing this blog.  My sense of style has become more defined and I’ve had to learn to say no to items that look cool but have no place at the table. This year I went with a witch theme for my party.  I wanted to go less…

Party Theme- Mermaids!

Halloween is so close and I’ve got the decorating itch! While I’m not a huge fan of the ocean with it’s deep dark crevices with predators that are millions of years old and bred for survival….I have a few friends that will enjoy today’s theme: MERMAIDS! This skull has been making the rounds on my Tumblr ever since…

Party Theme- Zombies!

I recently started watching Z Nation and it’s surprisingly good despite its Sy-Fy Network origins!  It also got me started on ideas for this party theme:  ZOMBIES! I love zombie movies.  My favorite one has yet to be determined because I like a lot of genres.  World War Z, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Cockneys vs Zombies, and…

Party Theme- Witches!

Hello October! Welcome to the wonderful head space in which I entrap myself throughout the year, but only get to experience with other people for a few short months. I thought it might be fun to showcase different themed party ideas this month to celebrate my favorite holiday. The theme today is:  WITCHCRAFT My party is going…

Spooky Slumber Party

I’m a sucker for sleeping in and I love to lounge around in my pajamas.  There’s no better feeling than waking up with the windows open on a cool autumn morning, then grabbing the closest pair of fleece pajama bottoms. I have so many shirts and pants in my collection that I’ve taken to making my own pajama sets with them,…

Sweater Weather

I enjoy the fall and winter.  I get to wear black with abandon, cuddle under fluffy blankets, and snowstorms are a great excuse to stay indoors. I also hate the cold and I would rather have someone drop me off at the front of a building than walk 10 feet across the parking lot when it’s cold outside.  But we all have…

Party City-2016

I used to hate Party City.  As a kid going out shopping for Halloween costumes with my family it was just another large party shop selling cheap costumes that were overpriced and my mom refused to buy us anything there.  Not that anything there was worth having mind you, but we still went so we could get ideas that my mom would…

Featured Fashion & Decor- Curiology

I’ve been following a well known Gothic jewelry company called Curiology for some time and I finally reached out to one of the owners about writing an article to feature their work. Their Facebook page is so fun and interactive (here) and they do giveaways once a month.  Although I have yet to win I still get to share the…
