…Well not exactly yet, except it’s no another 354 days until the next Halloween again … Already there’s Christmas every where, well actually I could have sworn that they started advertising it as early as September. We’re not big on Halloween here in Australia, I even bought treats for the trick and treaters…We had none, yeah I was disappointed…We have so much chocolate! I don’t even like chocolate that much,lol. (I was Miss Beetlejuice)
I hope that you all had a fun and, more importantly, safe Halloween…I know that America is where Halloween originated from, but I’m unsure as to what other countries may celebrate it. The other one that I am aware of is Day of the Dead, celebrated largely through Mexico.
So I thought that I’d share a few photos with you from my weekend. One of the foods that I made that was such a hit and I would definitely make it again is Candy Corn Popcorn…It is really sweet and extremely easy to make!
Recipe for Candycorn Popcorn
500 grams Candy Corn
225 grams white chocolate melts
1 Bag popped popcorn (flavour is up to you…I choose Johnnys Sweet &Salty)
- Place the popped popcorn and candy corn in a very large bowl (you’ll need plenty of room to stir popcorn).
- Melt the white chocolate melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each time, until melted. OR Heat a small saucepan of water to boil, bring down to a simmer, place a small glass bowl on top of saucepan (making sure that it doesn’t fall in) and place white chocolate into glass bowl, watching and stir as it melts.
- Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the popcorn and candy corn and stir to coat each piece of popcorn.
- Pour the mixture over wax paper and spread into an even layer.
- Allow to cool in the fridge for at least 15-30 minutes.
- Break into pieces
So the day is here! I was cleaning the house yesterday so I didn’t have so much to do today…How clever am I =D Except for the whole loving with somebody else who still has to move their stuff.
So what is your favourite Halloween game, movie, food? Oh I am so excited…What are you going as? I am dressing up as “Miss Beetlejuice” and the costume fits so amazingly well, I can’t wait for people to see! =D Have a fun (and very safe) night =D
So the weekend is nearly over and I really should be getting ready for this barbecue I have to go, but am so tired. It’s been a bit of a brilliant weekend…I have always loved Halloween even though I am not America and am secretly glad that it’s becoming bigger here! =D
Before I start to bore you all with details of what I did. I’m writing mainly because I had such a 360 with a lot of stuff that has been going with my life. I went to a wedding as well and it was such an eye opener! I am sick of being miserable over guys who just waste time. Watching this wedding (and it was really short too…I didn’t know weddings these days could take so little time!) really just made me open my eyes and made me feel like I want to get married…To the right person at the right time of course. It was a fantastic feeling!
People though…very interesting creatures. I think this weekend also proved to me though as a culture we are becoming more self obsessed and it is not really serving us well as a community. People taking photos of themselves being “introspective” while ignoring the pains of their friends and the world. Apparently someone having a crush on someone who clearly isn’t interested in them is more important than someone who is actually going through nasty break-up? All night I had to listen to love songs that I really didn’t want too.
Anyways, all of this is making me realise how much of a good person I want to stay and be and how much I want to be with a good person. Not someone who claims to be good, but is never given the opportunity because the girls want all of your friends.
(I kind of love how my costume kind of came out Harley Quinn meets Betty Boop…Boop-Oop-A-Doop)
I am so happy that this Fridays edition lands on one of my favourite holidays! =D I’m not an American or Mexican, I am Australian so it’s not a “traditional” holiday here, but it grows every single year and I have never been happier about it. In fact this Friday night I am getting together with a few friends, dressing up and going out for the night. Guess who I am going as?…One Clue!
I haven’t got the full costume on here, but I will take an update on the full costume. I just don’t really have the time to do the full outfit today…but I promise a full picture! The dress is from Black Milk Clothing. I am now really in love with this store, I already bought a TARDIS and they have a new “wrapped” collection coming out for Christmas!
I’m just putting this video here to get myself in the mood…I hope it works for you too! =D
