Halloween Movies to Get You Feeling ~Eerie~

1. Hocus Pocus

Need we say more? This movie is iconic in it's clever one liners, but isn't super scary (which means you'll be able to sleep after you watch it). We hear that there's a full moon on October 31st this year… all we need is for a virgin to light the candle to bring back the Sanderson Sisters. After all, it's all just a bunch of hocus-pocus!

2. Us

I watched this movie for a class last year and I was terrified. FULL DISCLAIMER: I am incapable of handling scary movies. Meaning: I watched a horror movie my senior year of high school, and I'm pretty sure that I was so freaked, I didn't go near a horror movie until "Us"- four years later. Regardless, it has a lot of interesting theories behind it, so if you're interested in some backstory, Jordan Peele himself has a lot to say in an interview with NPR here.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I watched this movie for the first time recently, and I missed out on a lot. I finally understand why it is such a classic. Apparently, everyone had a thing for Jack Skeleton way back when? To each their own. But regardless, "This is Halloween" was totally played at every Halloween party from middle school, ever. My sincere apologies if it's stuck in your head now!

4. Scream

What's your favorite scary movie? Kidding. This movie is a known classic, and just by looking at the above photo, I have distinct memories of my cousin dressing in this mask for Halloween. Produced in 1996, this one is absolutely a must-see if you're looking for some cheesy jump scares. Just don't forget the rules of surviving a horror movie: don't say you'll be right back.

5. A Quiet Place

This one had my heart stopping at the most bizarre moments. These are the sort of movies that keep you half scared, half on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. Plus, seeing Emily Blunt and John Krasinski together is pure magic. Krasinski is hardly the childish Jim that we see in "The Office".

6. Hotel Transylvania

I love Disney. So much so that of course I had to throw in this cute movie, even if it isn't so much Halloween-themed. What happens when a human stumbles upon the hotel which Dracula has built for monsters who need to hide? Chaos.

7. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

I grew up watching all of the Charlie Brown movies: A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and of course, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Scary? Not even a little. Adorable, endearing and perfect for a cold night with mulled cider? Absolutely.

Enjoy binge-watching!

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
