Top Ten Best (and worst) Halloween Candies

So with Halloween fast approaching, candy is on the mind.  So I've decided to do a top ten best and worst candies to get on Halloween! 

Top Ten Best

1. Reeses Chocolate
A lot of people don't actually like this candy, but I don't care.  This has been my long time favorite and it will probably always be. 
2. Suckers
It's not that this is my favorite candy, it's just that they last so long.  Also I'm eating one right now so I think I biased.
3. Kit-kats
If you don't like kit kats you have a problem
4. Twix
Left twix is superior. 
5. M&Ms
6. Starbursts
It's like getting two pieces of candy in one -- unless someone cheaped out and is giving individual starbursts because that's not cool
7. Caramel
I think I'm the only one who likes caramel so I usually get everyone else's caramel.
8. Twizzlers
I love the little halloween twizzlers so much you don't understand
9. Anything Gummy
Gummies are the best thing to happen to this planet
10. Anything that isn't funsized.
Honestly it could be something I hate but if it's larger than fun sized I'll pretend to love it because an angel just gave you candy. '

Top Ten Worst

1.  Fruit 
Honestly if you give out fruit on Halloween you are a disgrace to humanity.  Don't even give anything out if you're going to give out fruit. 
2. Those brown candy corn things
Those are awful.  Also, when I searched for bad halloween candy they were on the first page so if that doesn't prove my point I don't know what does.

3. Mints
Mints are not candy.  Do not pretend they are.
4. Raisins
Raisins are gross.  There is never an acceptable reason to raisin.
5. Tootsie Rolls
6. Any Candy With Nuts in it.
Candy with nuts is never acceptable.
7. Christmas Themed Candy
I understand that it is already on sale.  I understand that Christmas is the best holiday of the year, but I will let it infringe upon the second best holiday.  I'm here to be spooky not merry.
8. Pay Days
They just aren't that great of a candy.  You're nuts if you like them.  (You see my pun?  That was pretty good.) 
9. Fun sized candy
There is nothing fun about their size
10. Any candy in those bowls with the hand.  
You know what I'm talking about.  Those stupid bowls with those stupid hands that scare you every single time.  And then those stupid people are sitting by the bowl laughing their heads off because you got scared.  I hate those bowls.  I would not get candy from those bowls if it was from my St. Augustine chocolate.  (That's a lie I totally would I'm in love with their chocolate.)

Anyways, regardless of the candy, Halloween is great and no amount of bad candy can ruin that.

Oh! Quick note before I sign off -- What do you guys think of the headers?  I really like them and think they add just the right amount of sparkle to the posts.  Tell me what you think in the comments!

Hugs and Virtual Halloween Candy,

Halloween Movie Night?!

Recently I discovered this wonderful site called showgoers.  This website allows multiple people to watch a movie at the same time.  So I had the idea to do a movie night with you guys!  On Halloween night we could watch The Corpse Bride or The Nightmare Before Christmas together.  The basic Idea is that I could start a google hangouts with everyone and send out the link and we could watch the movie and live chat through the hangout.  The only problem with this is that you have to have netflix and showgoers for this to work.  If you don't have netflix you could always rent a copy of the movie we choose and keep up with us.  

Your feedback is absolutley necessary for this to work!  If you'd like this to happen, please +1 this post and/or comment what time (and time zone you are in) would be most convenient for you.  Anyone who +1's will be added to a group chat (that you can leave if you want) that will watch the movie.  

Hugs and Virtual Tim Burton Movies,

Fall Break Summary

So I go to a school where we get two days for fall break, so this post won't be very long.  Also, I've been thinking about vlogging so I won't have to write these posts out because these are probably very boring for everyone. But without further ado, let's get started!

Day One: Thursday
On Thursday I had a dentist appointment in Indy. I finally got to go up to JoAnns to get me some flannel and a nice pattern for a dress.   Also there's an Olive Garden super close to the store so that's a plus.
When you find a cute fabric but you don't know what to make.
After shopping I went to rehearsal for my school's musical.  (Did I not mention that?  I'll talk about that later...)
Olivia being super cool with her skateboard.
(also my copy of tabinof didn't come in.  it still hasn't come in.  help me.) 
Follow Me on Instagram!
Day Two: Friday
Friday was my day out with Olivia.  At 5:30 we left for the Children's Museum's haunted house.
Now granted this is meant for six year olds so it wasn't that scary, but here are a few of my favorite quotes from the haunted house:
Oh! Are you in the skeleton clique?  Me too!
Is that knife glow in the dark?! That is so cool! Where'd you get that?
 Have you heard of twenty one pilots?  They like to scream too.  You'd like their music a lot.
You are my aesthetic; you are what I strive to be.  
I love your hair!  (to which the person told us thank you which is gr9)
After our trip to the haunted house, which was short lived because the haunted house took so little time, we decided to go to Applebee's because why not.  After Applebee's we decided to see Crimson Peak -- which is a fantastic movie that you should go see. 

So that's been my fall break!  No one really cares but you know, I looked really cute and you needed to see that so...
