Luxe Living: Halloween Decor & Inspiration





























Next to Christmas and often times, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween is my favorite holiday! Fall is usually the most beautiful time of the year where I live. I love decorating, dressing up and getting into the spirit of things.

I think it's really cool that Halloween is unlike the rest of the holidays. It gives people a chance to get creative, let loose and touch base with a darker side of life that they perhaps don't think about often enough. I'm into everything paranormal, so I really love Halloween!

When I was younger, I was terrified of haunted houses and couldn't get through a scary movie. I was over dressing up by the time I was 10. But as I got older, I really started to get into everything Halloween-esque. As an adult, I count The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) as one of my favorite movies. I look forward to visiting the best haunted houses and creating costumes is one of my most enjoyed activities.  

This year, I'm going to see the Long Island Medium and may also get a chance to visit Salem, MA- something I've wanted to do since I was young. The house pictured above is located there and was featured in Hocus Pocus. I read that it's actually a museum. Maybe I'll get to see it in person. If I dress up this year, I'll probably go with something simple. If I ever get married or find a serious boyfriend, I have about 100 couples' costume ideas that work perfectly for a redhead! Things to look forward to...
