It's spooky season!


It's October and you know what that means.... time to do every fall activity you can before it gets too cold! Here are just a few "must-do"s:



fake cobwebs, lights, streamers, skeletons, pumpkins, you name it- any and all decorations are very well appreciated.

 Go get your favorite pumpkin spiced drink


It's that time of year again: pumpkin spiced everything. Whether it's a latte, cider, ale, or anything in between, now's the time.

Carve pumpkins


Get out your carving tools and pick out your design! And if you're feeling a little crazy, you could even make it a jack-o-lantern!

Roast pumpkin seeds


After you've carved your pumpkin, there's nothing better to do with all the seeds than to roast 'em! Super simple and super yummy!

 Hay ride


Bundle up and grab some friends! If you're really feeling the Halloween vibes, a haunted hay ride never fails to set in the spookies!

Make your friends a Halloween basket


Put anything from candy to a few good halloween movies in there, and no matter what it is, there's no doubt it'll brighten up their day

Watch Hocus Pocus


Speaking of Halloween movies..... this one is a "must-watch" around Halloween time

Go costume shopping


Or even make your own! You can also coordinate a group costume with friends or family, and have a costume making party!

Go Candy shopping


Now's the time to stock up for trick-or-treaters!

Make a wreath


Now it's really starting to feel like fall

 Make sure you're caught up on every American Horror Story episode


Halloween is all about creepy, and no show does creepy better than AHS

 Visit a haunted house


Grab some good friends and see who gets the most scared!

Make pumpkin pie


Is it really October if you don't make pumpkin pie?

 Go to a pumpkin patch


It's basically mandatory

Go on a drive and look at all the leaves changing


Make a good playlist and hit the road! Even grab some friends to join you too, and go look at all the leaves while they last.

Drink cider


Lots of it. You can even do a coffee-shop-hop and go around your town to various coffee shops, trying to find the best cider.

go to a Corn Maze


Divide your friends into teams and see who gets out first!

Apple picking


t really just isn't fall until you've done this as well

Jump in a leaf pile


Cause it's fall and, well, why not

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.
