ABC’s Of Me

How is it November already? I blinked like twice in August & now it’s November. I hope everyone had a great Halloween & now that everyone has had their candy fix we can move onto a month of turkey & another month of Pumpkin.

I was feeling a little antsy (probably from all of the candy) while sitting here so I started silently singing my ABC’s. I have no idea why but since I was old enough to learn my ABC’s I sing them silently to avoid whatever is stressing me out at the time. Mid song it hit me! So today’s post is inspired by my (& your) ABC’s.

If I Had A Halloween Party

I love Halloween & it’s a fun day month around here. It started when my brother & I were little, my mom & dad would take my brother & I along with 2 other families kids trick or treating. We did this for years until we I was told I was too old to go (that was 2 years ago, JK!). I love everything about Halloween, the candy, party decor, decorations, & the costumes. My ( best friend (who moved back to NY) has a family who is really into Halloween too. Her parents throw a party for like 150 people with games for the kids, adult beverages, a costume party (the winner gets a visa gift card), & a ton of candy / candy making. The house is decorated in every room & even the dogs wear costumes.

I’ll be attending their party when I’m in NY but since I’m not there this year I was thinking what I’d do if I had a Halloween party. Here is what I came up with.

The Food

The Decor

The Costume

I’ve never been anything scary that I can remember. I’m feeling a little fall like so I’d be a scarecrow this year.

What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

Shave Time & Money

A good razor is hard to find. Ladies, you know what I mean. When you do find a good one the refills are usually $30 for just a couple. I’ve got a secret to spill. I love using men’s razors, maybe it’s because I haven’t quite found a woman’s razor I like.

Given that I like using men’s razors the refills I’ve found could also be a little expensive. My boyfriend actually introduced me to Dollar Shave Club & they’re the same razor refills for way less! With the club you can even pick a plan & get their razor blades automatically delivered to you. Um, it doesn’t get any better than that!


Since his discovery I never walk around with unshaved legs. I love how my skin feels and I too it all off with a hint a Jergans lotion. I’m smooth and comfortable all day. If your looking for great refills and great prices click on the picture and start saving!
