Happy Halloween readers! I want to take the time to thank each and every one of you for checking our blog everyday! But lets talk about Halloween. Personally, it isn't my favorite holiday. I would much rather stay inside and pass out candy to kids than go out to a club dressed in a barely-nothing there-costume. It's just not me. But on the other side of Halloween, I love the idea of witchcraft, ghosts, and goblins...I just don't feel like it is represented in the right light...so today I will spend making other kiddies happy! So whatever you do, be safe, have a good time, and be classy! I will be back tomorrow to blog! Love you all! xoxo

Since I could dance, I would dance to Michael Jackson...I grew up playing tapes of him and Madonna, and I still dance to his music today. It broke my heart when he died, but the tremendous amount of support the industry has given his legacy is amazing. I am so thrilled with this movie...it came out on Wednesday, so go see it today!

Ghost in the Graveyard
2 ounces black vodka
2 ounces creme de cacao or coffee-flavored liqueur
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
Pinch of finely grated nutmeg, for garnish
In a glass, combine vodka and creme de cacao, and set aside. Place a scoop of ice cream in a highball glass, and slowly pour vodka mixture over ice cream. Garnish with nutmeg; serve immediately.
1/4 cup ice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1 1/2 ounces black vodka
1 black licorice twist, for serving
Place ice in a tall glass. Pour juice into glass. Pour vodka over the back of a cocktail spoon into glass so it sits on top of juice and creates a layer of black. Slice 1/4 inch off each end of licorice, and use as a straw. Serve immediately.
Berry Scary Martini
1 cup ice
1 ounce black vodka
2 ounces cherry juice
Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish
Combine ice, vodka, and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer, and place in drink. Serve immediately.
The quick way to spice up any outfit in the cold? HOSIERY! Right now, in fashion, there are sooooo many options to choose from. You got knee-socks, thigh-highs, opaque stockings, beaded, bejeweled, fishnet, two-toned...whatever you choose, take a risk! It's fun...I swear

Happy Halloween readers! Hope you're all stoked for the weekend & have your costumes set! To get y'all in the spirit I thought I'd share with ya Tim Burton's spread in Harper's Bazaar. I am a huge fan of Mr. Burton, either people love him or hate him, but I love the dark side!
"It's no secret that the best thing about a secret is secretly telling someone your secret. There by secretly adding another secret to their secret collection of secrets...secretly."
I'm aware that a lot of people will be offended by this post. But I can not ignore the fact that fur vests are going to be totally amazing this Fall/Winter. Wear a simple long sleeved tee underneath, or a chunky sweater...whichever you decide it is a must in your Fall wardrobe. Do it Rachel Zoe style...Also, if you are completely against fur, or just don't want to wear something in cold weather that cost you a fortune, just buy the fake kind...it's almost impossible to tell the difference anyways.
