If you're like me (a Scorpio), then you know how firey Scorpio season can be, especially when the 13th falls on a Friday. This (un)lucky day calls for an excuse to have a themed night that your angsty teenage self would live for.

For this spooky theme, think grunge, punk, rock, emo, witchy, scene and goth.

And of course, stay safe, get tested, and stick to a small social circle.

Step 1: Create your rockin' playlist

You can find some great articles for spooky drink ideas online! Here is one of my favorites.

Some of my favorite ideas so far are the black magic shimmering cherry martini, pomegranate rum punch, the black widow smash, witch's potion cocktail, and the smoking raspberry sage margarita.

Freeze gloves full of water and throw them in your punch bowl, toss in some candy eyeballs, or add some dry ice into whatever you choose to add some awesome special effects!

Once again, there are great spooky snack ideas online. I found some really good ones here.

Some of my favs were blood drip cupcakes, I see you Halloween snack mix, green matcha popcorn, icky intestines bread, veggie skeleton, deathly hallows cheese board, and bloody falafel fingers.

I hope you found these ideas fun and inspiring! Tailor them to your own creativity and desires!

Thanks for reading, and have a spooky Friday the 13th.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops.

"Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
