Happy Halloween {& an update}!

October 31st, 2012 | Posted in Blog, Personal by Meli

I hope all of you enjoy my favorite holiday, have fun, stay safe and don’t overdose on sugary goodness.

A quick little note if you don’t follow my fan page on Facebook (if you don’t, remedy that please): I will have to step away from the blog for about 3 months starting tomorrow. Something came up that needs my undivided attention, so unfortunately, the blog is going to have to take a backseat until then. Good news is, I will still be posting, but I will be limiting those posts to about once a week. I’ve asked some friends and fellow bloggers to please contribute whenever they can so that the blog does not remain too stagnant. If you are interested in participating, definitely let me know!

It’s that time of year: HALLOWEEN!
My absolute favorite holiday is just around the corner, so Casa Melificent is already slowly making its metamorphosis into Spook Central. Nothing makes me happier than to pull out that box full of goodies and start putting them around the house. We are nowhere near done, and I definitely want to tackle some of those awesome Halloween DIY’s floating around Pinterest, but for now, it’s a good start.

Do you love Halloween? What Halloween projects are you most looking forward to work on?

Happy Halloween (& Bon Voyage)!!!!!!!!

A very happy Halloween to all my amazing readers! I hope you have the most spooky, fun Monday ever!  While I moonlighted as Hello Kitty this past weekend, I will be getting my Katniss Everdeen on tonight while trick or treating with my nephew. What are you dressing up as?

ps; this will be the last post from little ‘ole me for the next 2+ weeks as we leave on a jet plane tomorrow headed to Europe! I’m leaving you all in good hands though. Three of the coolest chicks I know will be guest blogging in my absence and I am so excited to see what they share with you all. If you are interested in keeping up with our travels, you can follow our new blog, The Bombardment Society. But more on that later! Peace & hair grease!

This is Halloween!

I (im)patiently waited for October 1st to start hauling out the box from my garage filled to the brim with Halloween decorations. This past Saturday marked the date I could begin making our house look spook-tacular and I wasted absolutely no time! I recruited my poor hubby (who wasn’t feeling his best) to help me and by late afternoon, we were patting each other on the back for a job well done.

As people walked up and down our neighborhood, I saw them already pointing and gawking at our festive decorations. That’s right. Welcome to how I roll in October, biatches.

Here are some snapshots of my favorite pieces:

This is Halloween

September 1st, 2011 | Posted in Home, Party Planning by Meli

It’s no secret on this blog that I adore Halloween and it is my favorite holiday. I usually wait until October rolls around to start the themed postings, but I just couldn’t help myself. In my world, it’s officially Fall (even though we have no seasons here in Miami) and that means I can start planning all the fun decor for this year’s spooky festivities. Last year, I started decorating my home on October 1st and was sorely disappointed when no other homes in my neighborhood followed suit. For the entire month. For that reason, I feel pressure to make my house look even more spooky this year! I want it to stand out and really reflect our love of the holiday. Screw you, haters! Plus, this year I’ll make sure to have plenty of candy in stock as to not have a repeat case of the debacle that was candygate 2010.

Here are some of my favorite ideas so far:
