8 Ways To Get Spooky With Your Boo This October
Rachel Cotter

Looking for ways to get in the Halloween spirit? I've got you covered. Here are some of the classics.

Haunted house

Look up places near you (or make it a road trip) to go to a haunted house. It's a lot of fun!


Put away your pride for one night, dress up, and get some free candy. Bonus if you have a themed costume together!

Handing out candy

On the other side, handing out candy can be a lot of fun. Put on your spooky Halloween socks, grab some hot apple cider, and get ready to greet all the kiddos together.

Scary movies

Scary movies are a must during the month of October (and all year). If you can't find anything good on Netflix or Hulu, go old-school and rent a DVD! Redbox is your next best bet #RIPBlockbuster.

Spooky decorations

There is no better way to get in the Halloween spirit than to decorate your living area. This doesn't have to break your budget, either! Check out the dollar store, the Target dollar section and Hobby Lobby. Get to decorating!

Haunted hayride

Just like a haunted house, this can be so much fun! If you live in the south, chances are, there is someone in a 15 mile radius doing a makeshift haunted hayride. Do it for the mems!

Carving pumpkins

Artistic or not, this is a staple date for Halloween time. Have fun with it and take cute pictures. The memories will way outlast the pumpkin.

Baking spooky good treats

Pumpkin pie and apple pie are super yummy, but if you're not the best in the kitchen, maybe go for something a little easier. Pillsbury has the BEST Halloween-themed cookies, ready to be eaten once popped into the oven (or not).

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
