Well Hello There!
Welcome to my little home on the web. At the moment (July 2020) I am in the process of consolidating all my blogs into one location.

For example my favorite zombie costume, Undead Teacher’s Pet Adult, is 50% off: Whether you are planning your […]
Let’s face it. Halloween costumes can be fairly expensive for something you are likely to only wear once. Here are three costume checklists that you might be able to make from your own closet. The best part? They are made with clothes you can wear more than once.
The past few weeks I have been playing with Halloween Nail Art courtesy of a great how-to video on YouTube. So far I have completed three of the five designs but I don’t think I will get the other two done in time to give you enough time in case you want to try it […]
This year Torrid has their largest selection of plus size Halloween costumes yet — 27 at my last count. They have the usual sex-pot ones but they also have a few unique ones I quite like.
