It’s October!!! My top 10 Halloween movies for kids & grown-ups

October is one of my favorite months- It starts to feel like the holidays, there’s Halloween of course and…. it’s the month that I was born! Whoop Whoop! In October movie nights are spent watching Horror movies. I love setting up a sleeping area in the living room, turning off all the lights and watching scary movies that force us to stay up all night because we’re afraid to have nightmares. Here are my top 10 favorite scary movies to watch. I also included 10 fun Halloween movies that my kids really enjoy! What are your favorite Halloween movies?

A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forest



She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? …or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?


My Thoughts:

It’s been a while since I’ve had the time to actually read a book.  I saw that this was a short book and I was really in the mood for a vampire book so decided to give this on a go.  The book definitely had potential to be good- the scenery was beautiful, the story line a pretty good one too, but it didn’t really give me anything.  It ended with “to be continued…” and had no action, romance or enough drama during the book.  Pretty boring if you ask me.  I would say this book read more like what should have been the prologue to the actual book. I’m really debating on reading the second book- I’m assuming it can only get better because there are like 7 books or so to this series.

Glow in the dark themed party

This weekend we celebrated my niece Kyla’s birthday.  Her theme was “Glow in the dark dance party”.  It turned out amazing.  The kids had such a blast- everything glowing, karaoke and dancing!  Here are some pictures.

^^I found that Kylas at that age where shopping is not easy for a birthday.  Too old for dolls too young for makeup.  I decorated a mason jar and added some goodies and an Icing gift card.^^BeFunky_photo 3.jpg

^^Even I got into the fun.  Matching glow mask with my daughter^^BeFunky_photo 12.jpg

Sweet Fix at Sugarlina

Cupcakes and Macaron’s are 2 of my favorite things. This weekend I took a drive to Sugarlina to surprise the kids with some yummy macarons. When I got in there the vanilla cupcake looked so good that I bought myself one and had to eat it in the car because I didn’t buy more for everyone else haha :P I’m so terrible- sometimes I’ll be driving through McDonald’s to buy lunch for everyone and treat myself to a ice cream cone that I eat before getting home. I try and think of it as my reward for being so giving.

Weekend Pics

Not too much happened this weekend. On Friday night we went to Maui’s football game and that was pretty much the highlight of the whole weekend- the rest of the weekend was spent vegging at home in front of the T.V. A nice relaxing weekend is exactly what we needed :) Here are some pics from the weekend.
