last minute halloween treats

Happy Halloween everyone! 

Are you super last minute like me?

Or maybe you aren't big on cooking or baking. Don't worry I've gotcha covered today with some super last minute easy Halloween treats. 

Pink Mummy Cookies:

Buy some Milano cookies, bright pink chocolate, and candy eyes. You can create a some super cute mummies! 

grab a small ziplock bag, add melted pink chocolate, cut a hole in the tip of the bag. Then drizzle the chocolate over the cookies and add some candy eyes. done! SO GOOD! 

Poison Cupcakes:

these ones you might need a little time! just to bake the cupcakes, but you could also buy some already made cupcakes. (Target sells some AMAZING mini red velvet cupcakes- seriously they're so good). 

I bought a red velvet cake mix box, made these cupcakes and bought some black frosting. Using a piping tip I frosted these creepy things. The witch fingers are candy I found at Michaels. I also bought the cupcake liners and "flavor shot" skulls there, they come in a package. 

Pour some booze (I used Black Label) in a shot glass and suck it up with the flavor shots and insert them in the cupcakes. DONE! 

There you have it some really easy quick last minute Halloween treats! 

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!

Pop art party kitty costume

OMG!!!! we are only a few days away from Halloween! 

it took me forever to decide what to dress up as (waaah) 

I wanted to do something original or at least with my own twist. I also love costumes that you can use your real clothes. because who really wants to pay all that money on a costume?? ridiculous! 

sooo....I asked Claudia to help me create a pop art makeup look

and the pop art party kitty was born! 

I mean what did you expect? of course I had to turn it into a party! 

now who's coming to dance with me? <meooooow>
