Happy Halloween!!

It is so hard to believe that October is over and that Halloween is here! This month has gotten away from me!

I love Halloween! In fact, I love anything spooky, creepy, and scary!  I love horror movies, I love dressing up, I love the crisp fall air...I love everything about this time of year and this specific holiday!

I was looking at MovieFone and Netflix this afternoon and realized how much I love scary movies and how many I have seen.  I thought I would share with y'all my all time favorite scary/Halloween-themed/horror movies!


Hocus Pocus


I love watching this movie every Halloween.  I finally broke down last week and bought it on DVD.  This movie used to scare me so much when I was little, but I just kept watching it!  It's funny...I remember exactly when and where my mom bought it for me {Winn Dixie} and I have watched it ever since!


The Shining


This movie is so creepy!  The whole idea of being isolated from the rest of the world {snowed in at a creepy hotel}, it is understandable ho someone could come down with a severe case of "cabin fever."




This one is an Alfred Hitchcock classic! The shower scene alone cements it as one of the horror movie greats!  The surprise ending of the movie when you find out who killed Marion is one of the best twists to any horror movie...I won't ruin it if you haven't seen the movie!  This movie is definitely creepy, suspenseful, and scary!


Rear Window


This film is another Alfred Hitchcock classic!  This film makes you sit on the edge of your seat for the entire duration of the movie...very, very good!  My mom rented this movie for me when I was home sick from school {for an entire week...ick!} and I watched this movie at least 5 times in a row!  The Shia LeBouf movie Disturbia is a modern remake of this movie.


Dead Silence


This movie seriously creeps me out!  It's whole premise is about a woman who was a ventriloquist and treated her ventriloquist dummies as her children.  I don't know about y'all, but those dummies are creepy!!  This movie is really good, though, and stars Jason Stackhouse!


The Hitcher


I love the remake of this movie!  I really love that Sophia Bush is cast as a strong female lead...most times in horror movies the girls are just the stupid people that end up getting caught by the killer.  This is a really good movie, in my opinion, and definitely worth renting!




Obviously, I'm talking about the original!  The Rob Zombie remake was just too weird for my personal taste.  This movie is a little dated, but is still very good and very scary.  Plus, I think the Halloween franchise has held up better in the sequels than the Friday the 13ths and the Nightmare on Elm Streets.  Again, just my personal opinion.  {However, the new Nightmare on Elm Street was absolutely terrifying--I recommend watching this movie if you want to be scared!}


The Evil Dead 2

This movie is absolutely hysterical...even though it is meant to be scary!  This movie just has so many funny moments that you really can't get scared by it!  I love this movie!


The Strangers


This movie is beyond scary!  Tom and I went to go see this in the theater and I was scared to death driving home with him in the dark.  I kept scanning the roadside making sure no one was going to "get us"...that is how you know that the movie is scary!!


Stay Alive


This movie scares me every time I watch it!  There is just something scary about technology {video games} controlling someone's outcome that is terrifying!!

It got super hard to narrow down my favorite scary/Halloween movies...there are so many more I could have included!!

What are your favorite scary movies?

Happy Halloween!!

Monday's Style File: Kate Winslet

I decided to create a weekly link-up for everyone that is constantly bookmarking pictures of celebrities that serve as style inspiration for future outfits. I know I for one have huge files on my computer of celebrities that I love and styles that I want to try. If you follow me on Pinterest, you have probably seen my board called "Celebrity Style File" where I pin every celebrity style that I am loving and itching to re-create!!

This week I'm featuring: Kate Winslet.

I have been a huge fan of Kate Winslet's ever since Titanic.  She is a phenomenal actress and always dresses so beautifully for award shows.  What I really love is that she dresses so casual in her "off-time" but never looks frumpy!  She is always so well put together.

Here are just a few of my favorite looks:

To see even more of my Celebrity File Pins, check out my board on Pinterest!

Now, grab my button, link-up, and show us the celebrity style you are loving this week!

Halloween Costume Help!!

We are supposed to dress up Monday for Halloween and I need some major help! I have no clue what to wear!!

Obviously since I work in a Pediatric Clinic, the costume needs to be PG...maybe even G! 

I would love some suggestions from y'all!!  They do need to be something that I can easily recreate with minimal purchases and if it is something I buy, I need to be able to wear it again!

So please, please help a girl out!!


Shabby Apple!

I was recently contacted about becoming a Shabby Apple affiliate and thought it was a great opportunity!

What is Shabby Apple, you might ask...

On their website, they write "We started Shabby Apple because we saw a need in women’s fashion that was not being met. A need to make women feel feminine and beautiful for what they wear, not what they bare. We offer flirty, stylish dresses a woman can wear just as comfortably in the office, at a family dinner, or on a date. Shabby Apple is a fashion company for women, by women, and of women."

I could not have said it any better myself!

Seriously ladies, take a look at their website.  They offer dresses that are meant to be worn and loved, not worn and kind of liked.

I mean, just look at these:

These are just only a handful of all the fabulousness that is Shabby Apple!

I am looking forward to a long partnership with Shabby Apple and cannot wait to place my first order!

So, head on over to Shabby Apple and look around!

And, make sure to check out their current promotion for October: $10 off any black or orange dress! Hurry...October is almost over and who couldn't use a little black dress?!

Weekend Recap!

This past weekend, Tom's family and I all loaded up and headed down to Jacksonville, Florida for Tom's uncle's wedding!  Despite the cramped quarters {five of us + two dogs in a truck} we had so much fun! Tom, Trevor, Olivia {Tom and Trevor's cousin} and I all danced the night away!

Here are just a few pictures documenting the trip...too bad I only pulled out the camera to take pictures at the reception and missed the great photo ops of all our bathroom stops to and from Florida!

{My new CHI...they didn't have black so it was between this one and pink!}
