Current Obsessions: Halloween Edition

Current Obsessions Halloween Edition on Mongorammed Magnolias

Happy Halloween!!! I hope y’all are up for some tricks and treats today! I’m actually starting a new job working at a local charity shop today so I’m holding out for more treats than tricks. So to encourage the universe a bit in that department I figured I’d start by giving a treat. As a bit of  a bonus today here’s a look at my Halloween themed Current Obsessions.

The Addams Family

I grew up on The Addams Family. I wore out multiple VHS tapes back in my day and was completely in love with the lesser known cartoon version. Somehow, over the years, I managed to lax a bit on my obsession with the ooky and spooky family. However, that has all changed thanks to ABC Family’s Freeform’s 13 Night’s of Halloween. I forgot how good The Addams Family movie and it’s sequel, Addams Family Values, actually were. Maybe it’s just the kid in me but I’m obsessed all over again.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Damned

As a bonafide 90s kid, I have had a long standing obsession with black lipstick. It was always something I admired on other girls but never something I thought I could ever pull off. That is until I started reading up on my little obsession with these articles on the important history of black lipstick here and here. While this formula isn’t exactly black, more like blackberry, it does push buttons in all the right ways for me. In fact, I love it so much I featured this color in my Beauty Trend: Vampy Lips post earlier this month. You can join me in the (almost) black lipstick obsession by picking up your own KVD Damned here.

The Walking Dead

 

No spoilers but…OMG SEASON 7! It’s crazy, y’all. That season premiere was a rough one but honestly, it all evened out with last night’s episode. In fact, I might go as far as to say that last night’s ep was probably my favorite episode of the hole series and that’s kinda crazy in it’s own right. If you’ve seen it then you probably know what I mean. If you haven’t then I suggest you get on it!

The Last Podcast on the Left

Before I say anything, this podcast is not for the easily offended. Honestly, it pushes my buttons sometimes but it’s comedy so just take it with a grain of salt. At the basis of this podcast is 3 guys who love horror movies, true crime, and all things creepy. Check, check, and check please! The other day I was listening along while doing dishes, typical. It was one of those days though. You know, the kind where things just continually go wrong until you’re just going about your day under a huge pile of ewww. The podcast made me laugh out loud so many times that my mood was instantly lifted with very little effort. It literally saved the day! That’s the sign of a good comedy podcast if you ask me.

What are some of your Halloween obsessions this year? Did you go to a killer party? What costume did you end up going with? Let me know it ALL in the comments!

Happy Halloween!

Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas + Link Up on Monogrammed Magnolias

Ahhh! Happy Halloweekend, y’all! I can’t believe Halloween is finally here! We’re keeping things going with the final costume ideas post of the month. What better way to finish this awesome link-up than with last minute costume ideas? I’ve got you covered with costumes for both guys and girls but I’ll take it one step further. I’m lucky enough to team up with my friend Koryn from Pick Your Beau this week so be sure to check out her post here and add any Halloween themed posts of your own to the link-up below.

Holly Golightly – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This costume is a classic for a reason…it’s fabulous and kind of a breeze. Grab your favorite LBD out of the closet, pull your hair into an updo (like this), throw on ALL the pearls and costume jewelry you own, classic sunglasses & gloves, bonus points for the coffee & croissant!

Chad Radwell – Scream Queens

No spoilers here but let’s just say Chad deserves to be your (or your bf’s) Halloween costume this year. Plus, it’d be super easy to pull off. Just raid your grandpa’s golf wardrobe or hit up your local thrift store for all things pastel and preppy. Viola! You’re now a millionaire frat daddy!

Wednesday Addams – The Addams Family

Ughh, Wednesday is my spirit animal. Good news is she’s got a pretty easy look to replicate. Start with long pigtails (spray ’em black for the full effect), throw on a black t-shirt dress (wear an oxford underneath or glue on a white collar), deaden the eyes and you’ve got it.

Negan – The Walking Dead

Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas + Link Up

Guys, I can’t even begin to talk about the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead. Like I physically just can’t. With that being said, I also can’t bring myself to have hard feelings toward Negan. Maybe it’s just my absolute love of Jeffrey Dean Morgan…scratch that, it’s definitely my absolute love for Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I mean, he’s Denny Duquette, John Winchester, Judah Botwin, and freaking Batman’s dad all rolled into one! But let’s face it, he takes the cake as Negan and you’ll most likely WIN everything if this is your Halloween costume. All you really need is a leather jacket, dark pants and boots, a red scarf, and your very own vampire bat known as Lucille of course.

Party Animals

I saved this one for last because, well, it’s my favorite. Throw on your favorite party dress aka that one from formal sophomore year that you saved up all year for but only wore for like 5 hours. Then do your makeup (you can catch a few awesome tutorials here and here) and strategically pile a couple of sticks into your hair! Boom! You’re a bonafide party animal!

I hope this has helped if any of you are stuck on costumes this year. Not gonna lie, I still haven’t nailed down my costume entirely and I need it like tomorrow. What are you going to be this Halloween? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to check out Koryn’s post here.
